In today's time good service is hard to find. I'm in the air conditioning business and constantly hear customers complain about the horrible service they receive from someone. I was worried about this exact issue when it came time for me to find a divorce attorney. I'm a man that was caught off guard when my wife of 17 years up and left me and my son without a warning. She took our daughter as well. So you can imagine how important it was to get counsel as soon as possible. I also needed to get my daughter back and take the right steps to get custody. I was extremely pleased from the first meeting with Ms. Bogdanowicz she has been a God send. She has been on top of every aspect of my case from the start. I have the cards stacked against me being a male fighting for custody on the state of Texas. I have been impressed with the advice and strategy Ms Bogdanowicz has given. I am pleased to say that I was able to get my daughter back within two weeks of my wife leaving. I have primary custody and have won every aspect of my case thus far. Ms. Bogdanowicz has been an exceptional attorney and has made me feel that I’m her only client. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an attorney. I would hate to think where I or my kids would be if I received subpar counsel. Luckily I don't have to because Ms. Bogdanowicz has made sure that my kids and I are exactly where we need to be. My case looks good and my future with my kids does as well. Thanks you Ms. Bogdanowicz for investing your time and effort to make sure that my kids future and mine is bright and happy.

Guardianship is an issue that arises when a person is not able to make important decisions for him- or herself, and another must be appointed to do so. Maybe a minor is left without parents, or has an estate that needs to be administered following a family death. Another guardianship scenario occurs when an adult person is incapacitated in some way and needs someone to determine medical and financial decisions.

Guardianship is overseen by the probate court. Establishing guardianship means the state is taking away the rights of one person (the “ward”) and giving them to another person to manage (known as the “guardian”). The ward’s interests are taken very seriously and must be protected, so guardianship is a complex matter that does and should require legal and court oversight. Almost all guardianship issues are required by law to be supervised by the courts. It is crucial to understand your circumstances and all of your options.

Guardianship is often complicated further by the emotional issues that come with struggling over difficult family decisions. A clear-headed and experienced advocate who can keep an eye on the long term needs of the ward is the right person to assist you in defending or defeating a guardianship situation.

Guardianship cases are required to have legal representation, for your protection. Rely on the skill and compassionate guidance of Albin Roach’s own Jeffrey Yates who has extensive experience in issues of estate planning, guardianship, and trust.
