Guardianships and Guardianship Litigation in St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Tampa, Sarasota, Pinellas County and surrounding West Florida areas.
Professional guardians are a class of professional fiduciaries who routinely serve as guardians for individual Wards. Professional guardians are typically well-experienced in meeting the financial, physical and mental health responsibilities associated with caring for another individual. Moreover, professional guardians are held to a heightened standard of care and must register with certain government oversight entities.
Serving as a guardian can be a full-time job. Geographic separation and/or hostile family relations can often make serving as guardian untenable for some family members. In these situations, the appointment of a professional guardian can assist with providing adequate care and limiting unnecessary conflict.
