Dallas Elderly And Disabled Guardianship Lawyers


Guardianship does not always refer to an individual’s authority over a minor or minor’s estate. Elderly loved ones or individuals who have become mentally or physically incapacitated also need the care and attention of a guardian. If you need questions answered about the appointment process or the role of a guardian in Texas, schedule a free consultation at our office.

The Dallas elderly and disabled guardianship attorneys at Criss Law Group, PLLC have extensive experience guiding clients through the guardianship process. We understand your desire to care for your elderly or incapacitated loved ones, and can provide the legal direction necessary from start to finish.

Adult guardianship — what some states refer to as “conservatorship” — allows the court to appoint an individual to make personal and financial decisions for a person over the age of 18. There are numerous considerations that the court examines, including:

  • Can the person provide food, clothing and shelter for him or herself?
  • Can the person care for his or her own physical health?
  • Can the person manage his or her own financial affairs?

Whether your elderly loved one suffers from dementia or an adult family member suffers from a mental illness and cannot make decisions for himself or herself, contact a lawyer at our office as soon as possible. We will carefully examine your situation and any supporting documentation you might have received from a medical professional in order to provide you with insight, direction and information regarding any challenges you might face through the legal system.
