Conservatorship Litigation Attorney

When an individual becomes incapacitated and can no longer manage his or her financial affairs, family members or other concerned individuals can ask the court to protect the incapacitated individual and appoint a conservator. Whether the conservator is an individual or an institution, the conservator has many important responsibilities and obligations.

Velasco Law Group represents clients in a variety of conservator actions, including:

  • Contesting the appointment of a particular conservator
  • Representation of conservators
  • Accounting of conservatorship finances
  • Breach of fiduciary duty concerns
  • Conservator malpractice allegations
  • Conservatorship mismanagement
  • Contesting the validity of the conservatorship — fraud, duress, undue influence, coercion, and lack of capacity.

The attorneys at our law firm offer more than 35 years of combined experience handling conservatorship litigation involving substantial estates in Los Angeles and Southern California. We understand firsthand the reasons conservators and conservatorships end up in litigation, such as:

  • Conservators may abuse their power through careless or reckless handling of conservatees’ assets. A conservator is obligated to use due diligence in the management and control of the conservatee’s assets. Professional conservators are held to a higher standard than non-professional conservators.
  • Anyone, including the proposed conservatee, family members, and friends, may object to the conservatorship in general, or to the specific choice of a conservator.
  • A conservator’s actions are continuously subject to review, attack, and defense.
