Conservatorship and Guardianship

Entrusting the well-being of a loved one to someone else can be a complex and emotionally challenging process. When a loved one is no longer capable of making important decisions for themselves, it can feel like you’re navigating uncharted waters. At Thatcher | Law, we’re your experienced crew, ready to guide you through these sometimes-stormy seas. Our conservatorship and guardianship services can be your compass, ensuring the safety and well-being of your loved ones when they can’t steer the ship on their own, and are the most vulnerable.


Setting sail into the world of conservatorship? Conservatorship is a legal process where a court appoints a responsible person (the conservator) to care for another adult who cannot care for themselves or manage their own finances (the conservatee). Often, this course is plotted for elderly individuals riding the waves of debilitating conditions like dementia, severe injury or illness or for adults (young and old) with neurologic conditions that prevent them from navigating alone.

Our firm is your trustworthy lighthouse in these times, guiding you through the often foggy process of conservatorship. We guide our clients through every step of the conservatorship process. We provide comprehensive services that include petitioning for conservatorship, handling court proceedings, and managing ongoing reporting and accounting to the court.


Dropping anchor into guardianship? Guardianship is a legal procedure where a court appoints a guardian to make personal, medical, and financial decisions for a minor. Guardianship may be necessary when a minor’s parents are unable to provide proper care, or there is a need to manage a minor’s finances until they are old enough to do so themselves.

Our experiences attorneys can help hoist the sail of guardianship, representing your interests in court, ensuring all legal paperwork is completed accurately, and providing continued legal advice as circumstances change. We understand these waters are sensitive and strive to resolve them with the utmost respect and concern for all parties involved.
