The law firm of Goldsmith & Guymon, P.C. is recognized in the legal community for our skill and knowledge in family law matters, including guardianship proceedings. Our attorneys are frequently appointed by the court to represent individuals who are the subject of a guardianship petition. We investigate the circumstances and provide unbiased feedback regarding the fitness of potential guardians and the needs of the proposed ward.

When you enlist us to address a guardianship issue, you can be confident that you have chosen a trusted law firm that understands the personal and complex nature of these cases.

Establishment of Guardianship

We represent individuals, public governmental entities and professional fiduciaries seeking to become guardians. Because Nevada requires that a guardian be a resident of the State of Nevada, oftentimes it is necessary to utilize the services of a professional fiduciary either as the guardian or as a co-guardian, who serves along with a non-Nevada resident. We represent wards seeking legal representation during guardianship proceedings. We represent relatives or other interested persons who are concerned about whether the potential guardian is the best fit for their loved one.

At our law firm, we take a hands-on approach to these matters, which means we start by listening. We will listen and learn about the relationship between the potential guardian and the ward. We will learn about the needs and expectations of the ward, family and other concerned individuals. We will offer careful feedback regarding options and the steps that ought to be considered.

Disputes Over Guardianship

While establishment of guardianship is often a straight-forward process, that is not always the case. Disputes can arise. When they do, we will help you understand and assert your rights.

Our lawyers can represent you in guardianship proceedings involving allegations of exploitation, theft and other issues. When cases become complex, we do not need to send you to more experienced attorneys. We are the more experienced attorneys. Other law firms send their complex cases to us.
