guardianshipIf someone close to you is unable to care for him or herself or oversee matters relating to their property, we can help you establish a guardianship to insure your loved one is cared for and his or her property is looked after in a competent and professional manner.

If the parents of a child die, or if a child has been abandoned, is inadequately cared for, or is abused, a probate court may appoint an adult (who is not the child's parent) to take care of the child or his or her property. A guardian generally has the same responsibilities as a parent, and is responsible for the child's personal needs, including shelter, education and medical care.

I have been involved in guardianship where the person appointed guardian was the sibling of a mentally challenged person. I have most recently been involved with a guardianship where an elderly person with no direct family owned a four-family house in Hoboken and one day just walked out of the house and disappeared. After a frantic search for her she was found in a hospital in New York unaware of her name or where she lived. Under these circumstances the Court got involved and a guardianship was created to protect her assets and her own health.

Client Reviews
I initially chose Frank because of how close his office is to the municipal court. Best decision ever. His staff was on top of the matter and he literally knew everyone at the courthouse. He was able to get my charge dropped to a lower penalty and is currently working on my expungement. Definitely recommended. R.L.
I hired Frank for help in purchasing a multi-family home. To make a long story short, Frank advised me against the initial property I had come to see him about and it was the best decision I could have ever made. He went out of his way to make sure I was making a wise /secure investment and saved me a great deal of money and grief, when he could have just went through with the initial deal. I would hire him again without a doubt. B.W.
