Presented by Victoria Blachly and Denise Gorrell

Guardianships are designed to protect those that cannot protect themselves. Two of our experienced fiduciary litigators, Victoria Blachly and Denise Gorrell, will discuss how trial attorneys balance the need to protect legal and civil rights with the need to protect impaired persons from harm. If you work with elderly clients or have aging family members, then this seminar will provide valuable information about evaluating potential guardianships, and how a fiduciary litigator prepares for a contested guardianship hearing. Learn about ideas for practical resolutions and the complexities that can develop when mental health and family conflict clash in the courtroom.

Victoria Blachly’s litigation experience focuses on fiduciary litigation for individual trustees, corporate trustees, beneficiaries, and personal representatives, including trust and estate litigation, will contests, trust disputes, undue influence, capacity cases, claims of fiduciary breach, financial elder abuse cases, petitioning for court instructions, and contested guardianship and conservatorship cases. Denise Gorrell focuses on real property and commercial law, as well fiduciary litigation. She frequently represents clients on real estate disputes, business dissolution, and trust contests.
