Find Your Options

If you are reading this, chances are there is someone close to you who does not have the mental or legal capacity to make decisions for him or herself. It could be an elderly parent who suffers from dementia, a minor child who has lost his or her parents, or a disabled minor who is turning 18 years old and therefore her parents will no longer be able to make decisions on her behalf. In any of these situations, Florida law requires you hire an attorney and petition to the court to be appointed guardian of your loved one so you can care for them.

Whether is a minor or an adult, with many years of experience in guardianship law, our attorneys have the experience and expertise necessary to assist you to make sure you are appointed guardian of your loved one and that the best interests of those you care for are always being met.

At First Legal we are committed to providing high quality representation and you will have a team of dedicated attorneys that will partner with you and your family through this process ensuring your interests are being met. We will be at your disposal ready to answer all your questions or address any concerns you might have.

We have a simple rule, we only get involved where we think we can help.
