The Immediate Family Care Needs We Help With

At the Law Offices of Andrew Cohen, our Woodland Hills estate planning lawyer has extensive experience helping clients handle the following situations:

  • Guardianships: Guardianship is a legal means of protecting a child under the age of 18. Our team helps ensure that the legal needs and custody of a child are properly cared for, as well as the child’s finances.
  • Conservatorships: A conservatorship is granted when a judge determines that an adult is unable to care for their own finances or well-being. A conservator will be appointed by the court to handle the adult’s needs.
  • Powers of attorney: A general power of attorney is a legal agreement designed to allow one person to have authority over another person’s financial or legal matters. A power of attorney can result in broad authority or limited authority, depending on the needs of the particular situation. A power of attorney may not be valid if the principal becomes disabled, which is why it is critically important to properly draft the document so that it can be used upon incapacity or disability.
  • A durable power of attorney: A durable power of attorney is similar to a general power of attorney, but it will include language that allows for authority to continue if the principal becomes incapacitated. A durable power of attorney remains in effect until the principal passes away or revokes the powers.
  • Special needs trusts: This is a legal arrangement that allows a mentally or physically disabled person, or a chronically ill individual, to receive income without reducing their eligibility for public assistance (including Medicare, Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income, disability benefits, etc.).
