Pursuing Guardianship Litigation in Chicago

In order to foster well-being and protect the rights of those who are not themselves capable of doing so, guardians are entrusted with a number of complex and legally binding responsibilities. When guardians fail to honor these commitments or uphold their responsibilities, then, it may be necessary to pursue legal action against that guardian to ensure the dependent’s best interest is being considered.

Common Guardianship Litigation Cases

When the welfare of a dependent is not properly being looked after by a guardian, litigation may be required to relieve that guardian of his or her duties, as well as to recover any necessary reparations. At Peck Ritchey, LLC, our guardianship litigation attorneys are prepared to help you pursue litigation involving:

  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty
  • Citations to Recover and Discover Assets
  • Elder Abuse
  • Financial Exploitation
  • Removal of Executors, Guardians, Trustees and Agents under Power of Attorney
  • Validity of Powers of Attorney and other Advanced Directives

Our legal team will do everything they possibly can to hold those who take advantage of, or who are negligent in, their guardianship duties financially responsible for their actions.
