Please browse our services, give us a call, or view our video library to find out how we may be able to help you successfully and cost-effectively resolve your dispute or legal matter in Arizona in the following areas:

Scottsdale Guardianship and Conservatorship Attorneys

Implementing and navigating an Arizona guardianship or conservatorship can be daunting. Such proceedings have the potential to deprive the ward (the person in need of protection) of his or her constitutional right to make his/her own decisions of where to live, medical care and other important issues. Understandably, the law has certain protections to ensure that someone is not deprived of their rights unless all legal requirements are satisfied.

Our Arizona attorneys regularly handle contested and uncontested adult and child guardianship and conservatorship matters. If you have any questions or need help filing, defending against or administering an guardianship or conservatorship matter in Arizona, please contact us today.

Arizona Probate and Estate Lawyers

Navigating the legal waters of probate, trust and estate law in Arizona, can involve complicated matters that should typically not be handled alone. At Berk Law Group, P.C., we understand the complications that can arise after the passing or incapacitation of a loved one, be it a spouse, parent, grandparent, or even a dear friend.

Our experienced estate and trust lawyers can provide you with a wide range of legal services, aiding you with disputed estate matters such as over inheritance, wills, probate, trust, guardianship, conservatorship and elder law. We assist fiduciaries, such as personal representatives and trustees, heirs and beneficiaries in virtually all types of Arizona probate, trust, estate and elder law matters.  We are also available to assist in probate, trust and estate administration.

Arizona Elder Law Attorneys: Financial Exploitation and Abuse/Neglect of Vulnerable Adults

Our elderly friends, parents, and grandparents hold a special place in our lives. As members of the Silent Generation, or possibly even the Greatest Generation, they give us comfort, wisdom and advice based upon experience, and a window into our past. When they are not treated with the respect they deserve, it hurts us and our community. And when they are taken advantage of, that hurt often transforms into anger, frustration and confusion. This is where an attorney experienced in handling claims for financial exploitation of vulnerable adults and elder abuse/neglect can help.

At Berk Law Group, P.C., we believe the exploitation and abuse of the elderly happens far too often, sadly by those closest to the victim. This could be a family member, friend, or caregiver who greedily helps themselves to your loved one’s money, property, or assets, or who neglects or physically abuses the vulnerable adult.

We are thankful that, under Arizona law, this kind of behavior is not tolerated. Special protections are provided, potentially imposing severe penalties on those who take advantage of, abuse or neglect incapacitated or vulnerable adults.

Your loved one is not likely going to take legal action alone. It is up to you to take that step and get them the help and guidance they need. If your loved one is a victim of financial exploitation or physical abuse or neglect, or you need to defend against false allegations of such misconduct, call 480.607.7900 or contact one of our experienced Scottsdale elder law attorneys today for help and guidance.  We are here to discuss the circumstances and ways that our firm may be able to help. We understand the available routes provided by Arizona elder law and can provide answers you can trust.
