Guardianship litigation occurs when a person has lost the capacity to make decisions for themselves, and they need a legal guardian to make decisions for them.  Guardianships can be one of the most difficult choices that families may have to make, and one of the most difficult challenges that families have to experience.  The team at Smith Klein Law has the skill and experience to help you understand the legal matters and can guide you through them with experience, skill, and grace.  Both Colin Smith and Maurice Klein are routinely appointed by courts in the metroplex to represent incapacitated persons. 

We are committed to representing our clients in all phases of guardianship. Applying for, obtaining, and using guardianship of a loved one can involve complex legal maneuvering and require a full understanding of duties and rights.  It is important to have an attorney on your side who understands the
laws, rights and regulations of guardianship.  

Some common areas include:

  • Temporary (emergency) Guardianships
  • Restraining Orders
  • Permanent Guardianships
  • Contested guardianship litigation
