Our experienced guardianship attorneys are here to help you​​​​​​​

Our attorneys can help you navigate the legal processes necessary for pursuing guardianship.

Under California law, the court can appoint a legal guardian to make decisions on behalf of minor children. Relatives and unrelated parental figures may obtain legal guardianship over a minor child if doing so would be in the child’s best interest. If the grant of guardianship would interfere with the parental rights of the child’s current living parents, the court must determine whether parental custody of the child would be harmful to the child’s safety and well-being.
Guardianships exist to provide individuals with legal authority to watch over the well-being of a minor. These cases can be extremely complex and intimidating, but establishing legal guardianship is incredibly vital for the safety and well-being of the minor(s) involved.  Our experienced guardianship attorneys are here to help you navigate the process of legal guardianship of a minor so that the child or children may grow up in a safe and secure environment.

Walter is outstanding.

His advice is always thoughtful and focused on what is best for me and my family as opposed to what is most profitable for him. He recently advised me on a charitable trust, cut through all the legal/financial clutter and got to the heart of the matter in only a few moments. Walter is a man you can trust.
