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.

About Guardianship Lawyers Kenosha WI:

Guardianship in Kenosha, WI

Guardianship is a court ordered arrangement to protect individuals who can’t make decisions for themselves due to various reasons. Our Kenosha guardianship attorneys will walk you through the process of establishing guardianship so your loved ones are taken care of.

What is Guardianship

Guardianship can involve many responsibilities, including but not limited to:

  • Guardian of the Person: Making personal decisions for the ward, such as medical and living arrangements.
  • Guardian of the Estate: Managing the ward’s finances and property.

Guardians must act in the best interest of the ward. They may need to report to the court regularly about the ward’s status and the continued need for guardianship.

How to Establish Guardianship

Becoming a guardian involves a legal process that includes:

  • Filing a petition for guardianship in court.
  • Providing evidence of the potential ward’s incapacity.
  • Attending a court hearing where a judge will decide on the guardianship appointment.

We can assist with each step, making sure all legal requirements are met and advocating for the guardian and the ward.

A Guardian’s Story: A Journey Through Guardianship

A personal story that illustrates the impact of guardianship is “Emily,” a Kenosha resident whose elderly mother “Margaret” was showing signs of dementia. Emily was concerned about her mother’s safety and well-being, so she contacted our guardianship attorneys for help. We guided Emily through the process, from filing the paperwork to representing her in court. Ultimately, Emily was appointed as her mother’s legal guardian and could make decisions for her mother’s care and finances. This guardianship allowed Margaret to have stability and support in her later years, and Emily had peace of mind knowing she could legally protect her mother.

Guardianship is a big responsibility that can provide care and protection for those who can’t care for themselves. Whether you’re considering guardianship for an elderly family member, an adult with special needs, or a minor child, our Kenosha guardianship attorneys are here to help. We’ll guide you through the process and advocate for your loved one.
