Legal Services in Tucson, Arizona
The legal services we emphasize are Estate Planning, Probate, Family and Juvenile Law, certain areas of Elder Law, and Trust and Estate Administration. We regularly work in Guardianship and Conservatorship. We try to concentrate on areas of legal practice that are not only related, but also have overlapping and consequential issues.
Estate Planning is reflected in legal documents that give shape to our preferences in health care and financial matters during life, and to our instructions for the distribution of property when we pass away.
Probate is broadly understood to be the legal process that is often necessary to settle our financial affairs after we have passed away. However, the Probate Court hears other kinds of cases as well. For example, petitions for guardianship of and/or conservatorship for adults are addressed to the Probate Court. Some people refer to the Probate Court as the court of compassion.
Guardianship and Conservatorship
Elder Law includes all the issues that can arise due to one’s status as a senior citizen. One of the most common is guardianship and conservatorship, which can become necessary when we lose capacity to make our own decisions, and we have not already provided for that by the execution of powers of attorney. Elder Law is a broad field, and we do not practice in every area of Elder Law. For example, nursing home abuse is an area that we refer to legal professionals who emphasize that specialized issue in their practice.
