Conservatorships are sometimes necessary when a loved one has mental capacity issues and is unable to make his/her own legal, financial, and medical decisions (e.g., when a parent’s Alzheimer’s Disease worsens or a developmentally disabled child turns age 18). You can gain the legal right to make important choices for those close to you — and we can show you how.
Our “FAMILY MATTERS” project, presented at various LAUSD Special Education High Schools, provides information and services, in familiar surroundings, regarding conservatorships and is tailored toward families with a developmentally disabled child. Call (323) 939-0506 for details.
The “TRANSITIONS” project was created to address the special needs – not just legal – of aging individuals with developmental disabilities and the problems that arise as their caregivers age as well. It brings together professionals and organizations to help identify these changing needs and provide solutions.

Elder Abuse Restraining Orders: We also assist elderly and dependent adult victims of abuse file elder abuse restraining orders. Abuse of an elder or a dependent adult means either:
- Physical abuse, neglect, financial abuse, abandonment, isolation, abduction, verbal abuse, or other treatment with resulting physical harm or pain or mental suffering; or
- The deprivation by a care custodian of goods or services that are necessary to avoid physical harm or mental suffering.
