Guardianships and Conservatorships

Sometimes people reach a point in their lives where they are unable to care for themselves financially, physically, or both. This may be the result of aging, a tragic accident, or medical condition. When appropriate, Oregon law allows the appointment of a conservator (to assist the person with their finances) and/or a guardian (to ensure that the individual's health and welfare needs are met).
Cartwright Johansson PC can help establish a conservatorship or guardianship, or alternatively, assist in objecting to the appointment of a guardian and/or conservator. If a guardianship or conservatorship is established, Cartwright Johansson PC can represent the fiduciary in the guardianship and/or conservatorship.

The Oregon Legislature has provided powerful statutory tools to remedy financial abuse, and Cartwright Johansson PC has successfully represented victims of financial abuse and their fiduciaries in abuse claims. We also defend people wrongly accused of financial abuse.
