Nevada Guardianship Lawyers

When a person is unable to control the financial and personal matters of his or her life, it may be necessary to establish a guardianship for his or her protection. Whether a guardianship is necessary due to age, incapacity or other circumstances, a lawyer at Solomon Dwiggins & Freer, Ltd. can guide you through this process.

Establishing a Guardianship

Guardianships may be established for a person (adult or minor) and/or an estate. Establishing the right type of guardianship depends on the needs of the ward and the assets of the estate. In Nevada, there are open-ended proceedings for guardianships. The courts will work with your attorney and your family to try to maintain harmony while dealing with any disputes that may arise.

We at Solomon Dwiggins & Freer, Ltd. have significant experience representing clients in establishing guardianships, administering guardianship estates and terminating guardianships

Substituted Judgment

Nevada allows a person deemed incompetent to make changes to a guardianship in order to do tax planning. This is called substituted judgment. Many out-of-state individuals utilize this vehicle because of the ease and access to the Nevada guardianship system. At Solomon Dwiggins & Freer, Ltd. we are considered leaders in this area of law and receive many referrals from other lawyers regarding such matters.
