New Jersey Elder Law Attorney

What will happen when you are no longer able to care for yourself or your family? In order to ensure that you and your loved ones are watched after, it may be beneficial to establish a legal guardian. A legal guardian will be able to act on your behalf in the event that you become incapacitated and are no longer able to make decisions for yourself. If a legal guardian is not named in a legal document, a court will have the power to take away the incapacitated person’s rights and give those rights to a guardian chosen by the judge. If you have questions or concerns regarding guardianship, we encourage you to speak to an attorney from the Elder Law Center at Shah & Associates, P.C. right away.

Our firm offers outstanding representation to individuals facing numerous elder law concerns, and we stand ready to provide valuable information and resources to families throughout New Jersey.
