Solutions For Today. Planning For Tomorrow.

Attorney Brooke B. McMorrow has more than 10 years of experience with guardianships and other estate planning and family law issues. In addition to her legal experience, Brooke has served on the board of directors for Vintage, Inc., an adult day care and senior citizen center. She also provided pro bono guardianship assistance to families of special needs children through the former Good Shepherd Legal Foundation.

Parents of special needs children will need to obtain a guardianship for special needs adult children when their child turns 18. At age 18, a person is legally considered an adult, regardless of his or her ability to make decisions. To continue to care for your child after age 18, you will need a guardianship to make legal, financial and health care decisions.

Adults who are vulnerable or incapacitated due to illness or injury may be unable to make decisions for themselves. If they do not have financial and health care powers of attorney in place, they will need a guardian to act on their behalf. Our Pittsburgh guardianship attorney assists families with guardianships for incapacitated adults.

Want to avoid the need for a guardianship? We can help you draft powers of attorney for yourself or an elderly family member who currently has the capacity to understand and sign the documents.
