How can an Attorney help?


An attorney is a practitioner in a court of law who is legally qualified to provide a wide range of legal services.  Attorneys, like professional fiduciaries, offer different types of services in a variety of legal disciplines and it is advisable to work with an attorney whose expertise is in your area of need, such as elder law and probate.  

In the case of a guardianship and/or conservatorship, your attorney will assist you with understanding your responsibilities, filing of court documents, and other required tasks.  There are many qualified attorneys who can be found by searching the Oregon State Bar’s “Lawyer Referral Service.” In addition, some attorneys are GCAO members and you can find them in our directory of practitioners.
