We believe your attorney should not speak in legalese

Finding an attorney who is a “real person” can be difficult. Many attorneys surround themselves almost exclusively with other attorneys and are accustomed to speaking in ivory tower legalese.  You should be able to connect with your attorney on a personal level, and he or she should speak to you in plain language that you can understand.  You will be working very closely with this person on issues that are very important to you. It is important that he or she be down-to-earth and someone that you connect with.

We believe your attorney should be accessible

The most common complaint that clients have of their attorneys is that the attorney is unreachable, does not communicate with them regularly, or does not promptly return your calls.  Your attorney should reach out to you about your case regularly and respond within 24 hours to calls and e-mails.  An open line of communication between you and your attorney is essential to building trust.

Learn how we service your area through our Remote Location Approach.

We believe your attorney should be realistic with you about costs and outcomes

Your attorney’s goal should not be to win at all costs.  Rather, it should be to achieve a favorable outcome for you as efficiently as possible.  It is important that your attorney set realistic expectations at the outset as to the costs you should expect, the concerns that the attorney has about the outcome of your case, and the length of time that you should expect your case to take.

Regardless of the nature of your case, we have an experienced attorney who will focus on your individual needs. Our team of attorneys works closely together, bringing each of their different fields of experience to bear in order to optimize our client care.

Comprehensive Guardianship Services in Racine, Wisconsin

Guardianship is a significant legal responsibility that involves the care and protection of another person, whether a minor child or an incapacitated adult. In Racine, our dedicated guardianship attorneys are equipped to help you through this crucial process, offering expertise in establishing guardianship and conservatorship arrangements that serve the best interests of all involved.

Understanding Guardianship

Guardianship grants a person the legal authority to make decisions on behalf of another, known as the ward. These decisions can range from financial management to personal care and health decisions. Key aspects include:

  • Adult Guardianship: Typically involves individuals who are incapacitated due to age, illness, or disability.
  • Guardianship for Minors: Necessary when a child's parents are unable to provide care or have passed away.
  • Guardianship and Conservatorship: While guardianship often covers decisions about personal care, conservatorship specifically relates to managing the ward's financial affairs.

The Process of Establishing Guardianship

Our guardianship attorneys in Racine guide clients through the entire process:

  • Evaluating the need for guardianship or conservatorship.
  • Preparing and filing necessary legal documents with the court.
  • Representing clients in guardianship hearings.
  • Advising guardians on their duties and responsibilities.

A Racine Guardianship Story

The story of the Smith family illustrates the impact of compassionate legal guidance. After the family matriarch suffered a stroke, it became clear that she could no longer manage her own affairs. Her adult children were unsure how to proceed, facing both emotional distress and legal uncertainty. Upon consulting with our guardianship lawyers, the family was guided through the process of establishing a conservatorship that protected their mother's assets and a guardianship that ensured her personal care needs were met. This legal support allowed the family to focus on what mattered most—providing love and care for their mother in her time of need.
