Guardianship & Administration
SMR Legal has a strong history of acting for clients that vulnerable, disabled and elderly. We assist and advise on administrator and/or guardian applications to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) for those unable to make reasonable judgements because of disability.
We also advise and advocate about the rights and dignity of those with other special care requirements and are often called upon to provide specialist advice in relation to financial abuse.
Our areas of expertise include:
- Elder abuse
- Abuse, neglect or exploitation of other adults with decision-making disabilities
- VCAT administrator and/or guardian applications
- Assisting adults to plan for an impending loss of capacity
Please feel free to ask us a question and we will be happy to discuss your needs. Refer also to information at the Office of the Public Advocate, www.publicadvocate.vic.gov.au.
