Builds Cases in a Timely, Efficient and Effective Manner
Our law firm’s lawyer is a former regional counsel who litigated hundreds of child custody and guardianship matters for the state of Massachusetts before starting private practice. She supervised a staff of lawyers litigating custody matters, with close personal involvement in the most complex of these cases. She knows how to fight for the best interests of children.
Who Seeks Guardianships and Why?
- Grandparents and other family members: If a parent is unable to care for his or her child, then a grandparent or other relative or close family friend may file a legal process to become a guardian for that child, rather than having the child be brought into the custody of the state.
- Parents of adult children with special needs: When minor children with special needs who are unable to care for themselves turn 18, their parents must seek a guardianship through the courts in order to make decisions on their behalf.
