What to Expect When Filing for Guardianship
What to Expect When Filing for Guardianship

Guardianships are not just for children. Often adults with illnesses and dementia symptoms require the appointment of a guardian.

I frequently consult with Jackie because she has comprehensive experience as an elder law attorney, particularly in the area of guardianship law. She willingly shares her vast knowledge with clarity and patience.

Jacqueline is a highly knowledgeable elder care lawyer, a field that is both cross-disciplinary and specialized at the same time. She was able to navigate Land Lord Tenant parts in Queens County, the guardianship part of Queens Supreme Court, conduct a closing on a cooperative apartment, and digest a complex regulatory environment. Most lawyers would be lucky to handle just one of those areas as competently as Jacqueline handled all four.

I've worked with Jackie in our efforts to serve very vulnerable people in need of protection and advocacy. Jackie's heart is exactly where it needs to be and she's certainly someone you want on your side helping your family members when they need it most.
