Establishing Guardianship

Trusted Evansville Family Lawyers Since 1997 – (812) 496-3071

According to state law, a guardian is a person who is legally responsible for someone else under the age of 18 years in order to oversee his or her legal, financial, and personal affairs. A guardian may also oversee an adult who is unable to manage his or her affairs due to incapacitation or old age. No matter the age, a guardian must act in the minor's or adult's best interests at all times.

  • Andrew greatly helped me to feel reassured that I was not jeopardizing it further by seeking legal counsel.

    “Andrew was very personable, yet very serious. This was my first encounter with the legal system, my integrity had never been attacked and I felt like it was and wanted to be represented in keeping that from happening. Andrew greatly helped me to feel reassured that I was not jeopardizing it further by seeking legal counsel. I now have a different view of the legal system.”

  • From the beginning he spelled out my options, was very caring but no-nonsense, and explained what may or may not happen.

    “Andrew Dutkanych provided excellent legal counsel for me. I sought his counsel for an employment issue regarding harrassment and age discrimination and was both emotional and angry that my managerial position was being eroded and my duties systematically taken away. He carefully listened to my concerns and confirmed that I indeed had an EEOC case based on age discrimination. From the beginning he spelled out my options, was very caring but no-nonsense, and explained what may or may not happen. He filed all documents immediately, always returned phone calls or e-mails and successfully negotiated a settlement. Perhaps most importantly, he helped keep me calm when my employer was clearly increasing her harrassment in the hopes that I would quit or walk out. I would definitely recommend him and thank him again for his expertise!”
