A Caring Approach To Guardianship

A guardianship proceeding is an intensely personal process. If not handled well, it can be damaging both to family relationships and the self-respect of the family member subject to the guardianship.

At the Blacha Law Office, we represent people who want to become guardians of a parent, minor or adult disabled child. We also represent family members who hold conflicting views in contested guardianship proceedings.

Helping Your Family Through A Difficult Time

Families can face wrenching decisions when a father or mother develops Alzheimer's, dementia or other age-related health conditions. Emotions can run high, and the legal process can lead family members to dig into their positions.

When an adversarial process is used to resolve a family issue, it can carry a high emotional and financial cost. We are here not only to advise our clients, but also to structure a resolution. Attorney Monika Blacha's skills as a mediator allow her to help clients reach an agreement that meets the needs and concerns of the family.

Prompt action is important. If you contact us before your family member is incapacitated, we can help you create an estate plan and power of attorney that may remove the need for a guardianship proceeding. If guardianship is needed, we can help you make the process as painless and efficient as possible. We also advise guardians concerning their legal responsibilities.

The firm represents clients in a wide variety of probate matters. Ms. Blacha founded the law office with the clear mission of providing the utmost in personal attention and productive representation.
