Conservatorship Lawyers Based in Contra Costa County

A conservatorship can legally empower someone to make important decisions and handle the affairs of another person who is incapable of doing so — often due to Alzheimer's disease or another incapacitating illness or injury. Decisions regarding the establishment of a conservatorship are often sensitive — and disputes among family members are relatively common.

Planning for the Future — Solid Representation for Sensitive Disputes

We are proven, dedicated California elder law and estate attorneys who understand conservatorships from all key perspectives. We offer experienced, helpful counsel if you are:

  • In need of proactive estate planning that will document your own wishes and intentions in detail, helping to prevent family disputes over the need for a conservatorship
  • Facing a difficult situation involving a family member becoming incapable of caring for him or herself and managing financial affairs
  • Concerned about potential financial elder abuse, negligence or other misconduct by an existing conservator
  • Being challenged for your decisions as a conservator, with the potential that you may face litigation and require vigorous defense

Legal Knowledge and Experience You Can Count On

Our attorneys' experience with sensitive family and financial issues extends back to the 1970's and beyond. We have prosecuted and defended many will and trust contests, along with other types of estate litigation dealing with issues of mental competence, undue influence, responsible estate administration and other key issues.

Beginning with a free 30 minute consultation, you can depend on us for respectful, caring attention and an informed assessment of your legal options — without added pressure or risk. In the Lafayette area, extending throughout Alameda, Marin and Solano counties, we take pride in being a trusted resource for anyone with concerns involving a conservatorship or other legal issues.
