Defending Guardians

Dallas Guardianship Attorney

Most individuals feel very protective and emotionally vested in the care and well-being of family members. When it has been determined that certain family members cannot care for themselves, strong emotions typically rise to the surface. If you have questions regarding guardianship disputes, it is wise to seek the counsel of an experienced Texas attorney.

At Spencer, Johnson & Harvell, PLLC, our Dallas guardian defense lawyers understand the challenges inherent in appointing a guardian. Typically, the process runs smoothly. It is not uncommon, however, for family members to become concerned that a guardian is not acting in the best interests of the ward. When this happens, we can attempt to resolve the dispute through negotiation, or courtroom litigation.

Defending Guardians Against Accusations Of Performing Duties Improperly

We also defend guardians from:

  • False, incorrect or misguided accusations of improper conduct
  • Failure to disclose
  • Mismanagement
  • Misappropriation
  • Embezzlement
  • Self-dealing
  • Failure to account and all removal actions

If you have been appointed as a guardian and have been required to account for your administration or have been accused of failing to properly perform your duties or have been served with a petition for your removal, then we are ready to help you in every way we can to defend such action.

When family members or other parties contest the appointment of a guardian, or claim that a guardian is not acting in the ward’s best interest, it might become necessary to seek the guidance and defense of a legal professional. In this context, our firm is not defending the guardianship itself, but the guardian himself or herself. The guardian has been accused of doing something wrong, and he or she needs defense against these accusations. Contact an attorney at our office to discuss your situation in greater detail through a free consultation.
