Attorneys for Conservatorship

Updated Thursday, June 29th, 2023

The CANHR LRS Conservatorship panel was developed in order to assist family members who are in need of a competent Conservatorship attorney who understands California’s Medi-Cal and long term care programs.

Attorneys on CANHR’s LRS Conservatorship panel have all been carefully screened by the CANHR LRS Advisory Committee.

This panel is comprised of attorneys who are recognized leaders in the field of Conservatorship law.

  • Conservatorship of the person
  • Conservatorship of the estate

Please Note: CANHR does not offer reduced fee or probono referrals for Conservatorship Cases



Please Note:

CANHR’s LRS Conservatorship Panel Members DO NOT represent parties in Contested Conservatorship cases where there are disagreements regarding the selection of the conservator or the nature of the conservatorship.

For representation in contested conservatorship cases, you are advised to contact your county bar association’s lawyer referral service.
