Guardianship

Substitute Decision-Making for Personal, Medical and Residential Issues

Our firm provides individualized services as a Guardian for individuals, whether as a plenary Guardian for all aspects of personal decision-making, or as a Limited Guardian for decision-making around specific matters. Attorney Baum is a National Certified Guardian and works with the Courts, physicians and families when additional specific judicial authority is required, such as the authority to permit extraordinary medical procedures including treatment with antipsychotic medication and end of life planning. Our office often contracts with Care Managers to help coordinate medical appointments and other aspects of daily care for the individuals on whose behalf we work. Our office also provides management and oversight services related to health insurance and other benefits. We also actively oversee health and prescription drug insurance coverage for the individuals in out care to make sure that appropriate coverage is in place.
