Guardianship Proceedings

Our client’s elderly mother was unable to care for herself or handle her finances. We assisted our client in obtaining an Order for Emergency Appointment of Fiduciary from the Boone County, Kentucky District Court. The Emergency Order was granted due to financial exploitation and health and medical issues our client’s mother was experiencing. Our client’s sister challenged the Emergency Order at a hearing. However, the trial court reaffirmed its ruling and set a trial date of May 4, 2016. A number of witnesses testified at the trial, including our client, his sister, and a social worker who had examined our client’s mother. Ultimately, the jury concluded that our client’s mother was disabled, and the court appointed our client Guardian and Conservator for his mother.
