Part II: Guardianship Powers: Too Much, Too Little or Just Right?
Thursday, July 9; 12:30 - 1:30

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.
