Toms River Guardianship Lawyer

Vulnerable seniors and minors often need to have a guardianship established on their behalf, in the event of incapacitation or a profound disability. In setting up this protection, you should consult with an experienced and skilled legal professional who can safeguard your family's interests.

In Toms River, Manchester and Ocean County, New Jersey, the guardianship and elder care lawyer who can help you can be found at the Law Office of David A. Semanchik. We encourage estate planning clients from all walks of life — individuals, couples and families — to establish a will, trust, durable power of attorney and other essential documents to ensure that personal, financial and medical matters are handled by a trusted person. When that solid documentation does not exist or is no longer valid, a guardianship may be used to care for a loved one with special needs if he or she is no longer capable of making decisions.
