Annual Probate GAL Seminar
Don’t miss this annual program!

Part I: TRO/Adult-at-Risk Injunction Do’s and Don’t for GALs
Learn the expectations of GALs related to TRO/Adult-at-Risk Injunctions, as well as best practices for advancing these cases from start to finish.

Presenters: Sara Eberhardy, Eberhardy & Eberhardy, LLP, Avery Mayne, Walny Legal Group LLC

Part II: Who You Gonna Call? Milwaukee ADRC
Milwaukee County Disability Services Division and Milwaukee County Department on Aging will provide a brief overview of its services, statutory obligations, and statutory limitations regarding Adult Protective Services (“APS”) and Elder Abuse (“EA”). Information will cover both general APS/EA investigations but also how the County petitions on behalf of adults in Adult At-Risk Injunctions.

Presenters: Lisa Procaccio, Milwaukee County Corporation Counsel
Marietta Luster, Kory Postotnik, Taunya Thomas, Milwaukee County Disability Services Division
Liz Oettiker, Ryan Wiklin, Milwaukee County Department of Aging

Part III: Guardianship Powers: Too Much, Too Little or Just Right?
Attorneys are very creative in drafting additional powers to supplement the statutory powers in petitions for guardianship of the person and estate. Then GALs and advocate counsel must decide whether to accept or oppose those additional powers. Another common question is how to tailor the statutory powers to limit the guardianship and preserve some autonomy for the ward.

Presenters: Victoria Davis Davila and Robert (Rock) Pledl, Davis & Pledl, S.C.

Part IV: Probate Court Panel
