Pursuing Guardianship Litigation in Chicago

In order to foster well-being and protect the rights of those who are not themselves capable of doing so, guardians are entrusted with a number of complex and legally binding responsibilities. When guardians fail to honor these commitments or uphold their responsibilities, then, it may be necessary to pursue legal action against that guardian to ensure the dependent’s best interest is being considered.

Common Guardianship Litigation Cases

When the welfare of a dependent is not properly being looked after by a guardian, litigation may be required to relieve that guardian of his or her duties, as well as to recover any necessary reparations. At Peck Ritchey, LLC, our guardianship litigation attorneys are prepared to help you pursue litigation involving:

  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty
  • Citations to Recover and Discover Assets
  • Elder Abuse
  • Financial Exploitation
  • Removal of Executors, Guardians, Trustees and Agents under Power of Attorney
  • Validity of Powers of Attorney and other Advanced Directives

Our legal team will do everything they possibly can to hold those who take advantage of, or who are negligent in, their guardianship duties financially responsible for their actions.

I solicited Peck Ritchey, LLC for assistance with a living trust for which I became the beneficiary. I needed assistance with understanding the details of how it all worked. However, I was especially concerned because there were threats of allegations made by family members and a lawsuit was filed against me. I needed a solid professional who had my best interests in mind. Peter Brady took my case and he managed it flawlessly. He explained everything in a way I could understand, he knew the law inside and out, he was always available to answer questions, and even offer support when things seemed like they could become extremely problematic. In addition to this, he had a plan. He navigated the course as if he already knew the next move by the opposing attorney. He made me feel like everything was in control and that’s because he knew exactly what he was doing and he consulted with me about everything. We ended up settling out of court and ultimately the court officially dismissed the lawsuit. I honestly believe if it wasn’t for Peter and his expertise this could have gone in an entirely different direction. Peter did a stellar job and I couldn’t be more pleased and impressed with his performance.
