At Tran Sood Law Firm, APLC, we assist conservators to perform their duties in compliance with the laws while minimizing family conflicts and preventing conservatees’ assets from being depleted by legal fees and costs.
In addition to protecting the interests of the conservatee, a conservator must also manage concerns and juggle the expectations of many individuals involved in the conservatee’s life, including family members, court investigator, and conservatee’s court appointed attorney. Proper handling of the concerns and expectations of the interested parties will foster trust, confidence, cooperation, and support, which are essential to successful performance of a conservator’s duties and responsibilities. On the other hand, if the issues are not appropriately addressed or resolved, the consequences are mistrust and protracted litigation against the conservator.
Our attorneys are also appointed by the probate courts in Santa Clara and San Francisco counties to represent and protect (proposed) conservatees. With this experience, Tran Sood Law Firm’s attorneys understand the court investigator and court appointed attorney’s perspectives, and, therefore, can better guide non-professional conservators to manage expectations and work collaboratively with all interested parties to promote the best interests of the conservatees.
