Guardianships & Conservatorships

Guardianships & Conservatorships

Effective January 1, 2022, Washington State has adopted a new uniform guardianship law.   As under the old law, a guardian can be appointed by a court for an incapacitated minor under 18 or incapacitated adult.  The new law involves significant changes to the previous guardianship laws and reporting requirements for appointed guardians. It can be helpful for clients to have experienced counsel to help them navigate through this newly enacted legal framework and provide legal representation.

I advise and represent lay guardians in minor and adult guardianship and conservatorship proceedings in King County. I also help lay guardians manage their annual reporting requirements
