With all its legal and governmental details, protecting the safety and comfort of a person with disabilities can feel like an uphill battle. Because safety and dignity are important, we represent people seeking legal guardianship and/or conservatorship of family members with age-related or other disabilities who cannot manage their own affairs. We guide you through the probate court process and provide counsel as to your role and duties. In appropriate situations, our attorneys can also serve as guardians, conservators, trustees, or co-trustees.
We also defend people who are still competent to manage on their own and wish to retain the freedom to do so.
Hickman & Lowder is here to empower you and your circle of support to understand options and make decisions that bring appropriate relief and security. We also work with organizations that support and advocate for people with disabilities, to help ensure that the community as a whole is acting to support and respect your family’s needs.
