Knowledgeable Guardianship Attorneys in Houston, Texas

Experienced Representation in Guardianship Matters

Guardianships can be necessary for minors or adult individuals who, because of a physical or mental disability, are rendered incapable of taking care of themselves or their property. If you know of someone who is unable to make financial or legal decisions, or you need to protect the interests of a minor child, a legal guardianship can give you authority to act on their behalf. To help assist you with the guardianship process, you want an attorney with experience and who knows the law and the process.

At the Black Law Firm, our attorneys have been advising clients throughout the greater Houston area for over 15 years on guardianship matters. We will guide you through establishing a guardianship and administering a guardianship estate from beginning to end. Because guardianships are court-supervised, we will assist you in wading through and complying with the myriad of statues and rules that govern a guardian's actions.
