Caring for people who may not be able to care for themselves

The job of the court guardian is to represent a person who has been deemed by the court to be incapable of fully understanding and/or handling his or her legal matters. If you or a loved one find yourself in this position, I am fully certified by the State of New York to perform such services as a judge may order, on behalf of an "allegedly incapacitated person" or to act as the court evaluator.

This is the person who a petitioner believes is in need of a guardian, and is sometimes referred to as “the A.I.P.” by court personnel. You or your loved one is "allegedly" incapacitated because the judge has not yet decided whether a guardian is really needed.
