Professional Guardians

professional-guardianshipA professional guardian is an individual or corporation that acts as guardian or other fiduciary for incapacitated individuals to whom they have no personal tie. Certified professional guardians are supervised by the Superior Court and required to adhere to standards of practice.

Two of the attorneys of Robin H. Balsam P.S. are certified professional guardians, and the firm has a partner guardianship agency, Commencement Bay Guardianship Services (“CBGS”). Along with our certified professional guardians, CBGS has support staff available to assist clients and their families with all aspects of care, care management, and financial issues such as applications for benefits, accounting, and management of assets.
