Professional Guardian and Conservator—Attorney Grimaldi has been appointed by Middlesex, Suffolk, Bristol, Norfolk and Essex Country Courts and by private parties to act as a Professional Guardian and Conservator for a protected person (minor, elder or mentally ill individual). Attorney Grimaldi is usually appointed in one of two circumstances: (1) when no family member is willing or able to serve as guardian or conservator; or (2) when internal family conflict necessitates an independent neutral party to serve as guardian and/or conservator. Attorney Grimaldi works in tandem with health care professionals, the protected person and family members to encourage and maintain healthy family relationships. Attorney Grimaldi also ensures that financial affairs of the protected person are properly managed.
