Requesting the appointment of a guardian to protect a family member or loved one can be a very personal matter. The area of elder law, as well, can be personal and confusing. Many people believe they have to put all their money in trusts, when in fact there are other options that may be more more in conformance with the wishes of a family. Partnering with a Wayne elder law attorney can illuminate these situations and allow families to move toward ideal resolutions in guardianship and elder law planning.
