Rafferty & Redlisky, LLP concentrates in contested guardianship proceedings in Bronx, Kings, Queens, Rockland, Nassau, New York and Westchester Counties. A guardianship petition under Article 81 of the Mental Hygiene Law is brought when a person requires some form of assistance in meeting their personal and property management needs. Most times the situation arises when the AIP either did not have advance directives in place such as a durable power of attorney or health care proxy, or those advance directives are insufficient or being misused by the agent. In the event that a finding of incapacity is made by the court, or upon the consent of the subject party, the court will direct the least restrictive form of intervention which assists them in meeting their personal and property management needs but, at the same time, permits them to exercise the independence and self-determination of which they are capable. We routinely have been appointed as Court Evaluator, Counsel to the AIP, and Guardian in complex and litigated guardianship matters, as a result of our experience, demonstrated ability and caring service to our clients.
