The attorneys at Chuhak & Tecson are sensitive to your needs, will listen to you and provide you with the answers that you need. Whether your loved one is a minor or a disabled adult, we will walk you through the process of opening the guardianship estate and be right there with you through the continued administration of the estate with the court. We represent court-appointed guardians, individuals, family members and institutional clients.

We are experienced in representing our clients in the administration of guardianship estates, as well as in contested estates. Our attorneys have a wide range of experience in all types of guardianship litigation from competency disputes, contested hearings, representation and defense of appointment of guardians to claims of breach of fiduciary duty. We can assist you with the investigation and collection of assets, as well as with disputes concerning assets.

The attorneys in the Estate & Trust Administration & Litigation Department at Chuhak & Tecson include attorneys who previously worked for the Office of the Cook County Public Guardian and who currently act as Guardian Ad Litems in guardianship estates. This experience provides us with unique insight into handling all types of guardianship estates and we will put that experience to work for you.
