Guardianship and Conservatorship – Elderly woman wants to preserve her right to make medical decisions and keep her estate planning intact (contested, Renville County):
Client and background: represented an 80 year old woman whose children petitioned for guardianship and conservatorship and at the same time initiated a civil action to undo a conveyance of 800 acres of farm land.
Strategy: Attempt mediation and then proceed to trial if necessary.
Result: After a contested hearing the Court ruled that my client did not need a guardian (she could still make her own medical decisions), but ruled that she did need a conservator appointed to help her manage her significant assets. The court also upheld the conveyance of real estate after 4 day trial.
She was very helpful and knowledgeable and helped me understand everything I needed to know to help my divorce proceedings go as smoothly as possible. She was quick to respond to any questions I had. I would highly recommend her to anyone that was looking for a lawyer. – Kerri, divorce client (5 star review)
