Massachusetts Guardianship & Conservatorship Appeal Attorney
A guardianship or conservatorship dispute can involve a wide range of issues including safety, living arrangements, health care, end of life decisions, autonomy and financial management.
Some common appellate issues include legal capacity, undue influence, asset waste & recovery, fraud, forgery, a breach of fiduciary duty or an action to remove or replace a guardian or conservator.
Without an appeal, the guardianship or conservatorship dispute judgment will become final. If the judgment has been appealed and you do not defend the judgment on appeal then you risk losing what you have won in the trial court.
