CONSERVATORSHIPS

Caring for a Vulnerable Adult | Conservatorship Attorneys

Through the natural aging process, a sudden accident or stroke or the slow onset of dementia, all of us have the potential to become unable to make decisions regarding our finances, medical care and day-to-day activities. At the Law Offices of Mitchell A. Karasov, we can help you implement a conservatorship to make sure that your loved one receives the care he or she needs at this distressing time.

To schedule an initial consultation with a lawyer at the firm, call us today at 818.508.7192 or 760.673.7385 or contact us online. We serve clients throughout Los Angeles and Southern California.

Responding to Crisis, Preparing for the Future

By implementing a conservatorship, we can give you or another trusted individual the authority needed to make decisions on your loved one's behalf. We can help you find a long-term arrangement suited to your loved one's medical condition, whether he or she needs dementia care, treatment for Alzheimer's disease or help with a bodily disorder.

We are familiar with the particular medical needs of elderly individuals. For example, there are several different types of dementia, and all of them progress differently. If your loved one has dementia, our lawyers will consider his or her long-term prognosis in developing an elder care plan.

In addition, we can help you implement a conservatorship or revoke someone else's conservatorship in response to actual or potential financial elder abuse.

Avoiding the Need for Conservatorships

If you plan ahead for the possibility of incapacity, you can use a power of attorney to avoid the need for a conservatorship. With powers of attorney, individuals designate someone they trust to make decisions for them in case they become incapacitated in the future. When the time comes to enact a power of attorney, it is much easier and less expensive than implementing a conservatorship. At the Law Offices of Mitchell A. Karasov, we believe powers of attorney are a natural component of every estate plan.

If you would like to schedule a consultation to discuss conservatorships with an attorney at Law Offices of Mitchell A. Karasov, call us today at 818.508.7192 or contact us online.

ELDER ABUSE

Protecting Vulnerable Adults | Elder Abuse Lawyers in Los Angeles, California

Elderly individuals frequently suffer from physical disabilities and cognitive deficiencies brought on by the natural process of aging. Unfortunately, this renders them vulnerable to financial exploitation and neglect. If you suspect your elderly loved one has been or is being victimized, the Law Offices of Mitchell A. Karasov can help.

Schedule an initial consultation at the firm by calling 818.508.7192 or by contacting us online. The firm's attorneys will help you take immediate action to protect your loved one from elder abuse:

  • Financial Abuse: sometimes, family members acting ostensibly as caretakers for vulnerable elderly individuals may exploit the individuals accumulated financial resources. In all cases, these actions amount to theft, leaving the vulnerable elderly adult with little left to use to pay for long-term care or to live comfortably.

Ending Elder Abuse Immediately

Our lawyers can help you file a protective order or restraining order on behalf of the abused individual. Restraining orders filed on behalf of elderly individuals are unique in that they can force the abuser to move out of the home immediately, no questions asked.

After the vulnerable adult has been removed from the abusive situation, you can take steps to recover reimbursement for any moneys that have been wrongfully taken.

If you believe your loved one is being abused, the firm's attorneys can help you end it today. Call 818.508.7192 or contact the Law Offices of Mitchell A. Karasov online to schedule an initial consultation to discuss your options.
