Millburn New Jersey Guardianship Lawyers
When elderly or disabled people reach a point where they can no longer manage their affairs, a guardianship is an effective legal means for protecting them. At the law office of Posner & Kramer, our attorneys assist clients in establishing a guardianship for an elderly or disabled loved one. Depending on the circumstances, a medical examination or a psychiatric evaluation may be required in order to convince the court a person is no longer competent or able to order their own affairs. Our lawyers can help you determine if a medical or psychiatric examination is needed, while preparing all necessary paperwork and financial information. In cases that require locating investments and bank accounts, our office works with forensic accounts, tax experts, and financial planners in order to determine the financial situation of people afflicted with Alzheimer's or dementia.
