Our guardianship attorneys have many years of experience in proceedings in both Supreme Court under Article 81 of the Mental Hygiene Law, which seeks the appointment of a guardian for personal needs and/or property management, and in Surrogate’s Court under Article 17-A of the Surrogate’s Court Procedure Act, which concerns guardianships for persons who are intellectually or developmentally disabled.

We represent alleged incapacitated persons, parents, children, friends, and other people interested in the well-being of a person who may need a guardian. While we litigate many guardianship proceedings to trial, we strive to reach a resolution in the most cost-effective manner possible. We know that every guardianship case is unique, and we work to craft solutions that are individually tailored to the needs of the alleged incapacitated person.
