Experienced Guardianship Attorneys In Las Vegas
At Johnson & Johnson Law Offices, we assist Nevada families facing difficult decisions when a parent, child or other loved one is no longer able to make decisions for themselves. Legal guardianship arrangements allow for family members to take responsibility for the individual and make key decisions on their behalf.

We assist in all matters of guardianship, with the primary examples being:
Minor child guardianships — We assist relatives, grandparents and stepparents in becoming legal guardians of children in the absence of an able parent. This person will be able to make personal, financial and legal decisions for the child until the age of 18. This will not terminate the original parent-child relationship as in adoption. The decision making is simply transferred.
Adult guardianship — This allows a sibling, child or other close individual make decisions for an elderly or incapacitated adult, usually in cases of dementia, Alzheimer's, mental illness or other ailment. This covers an adult where there is no health care agent or power of attorney. While many of these decisions are medical in nature, financial decisions must also be made, including those relating to asset protection.
Adult child guardianship — At the age of 18, a child has the right to make decisions on health care and living situations, even if he or she is not mentally capable of such decisions. Generally handled through court, this allows a parent or family member to take guardianship of a developmentally disabled child, facilitating those decisions in his or her best interests.
Emergency guardianship proxy — This allows a parent to appoint a guardian of his or her child for up to 60 days without court approval, generally in cases of illness, relocation or other circumstances.
We are also able to represent clients when conflict arises surrounding existing guardianship agreements. For instance, should a family member suspect that a guardian is exploiting his or her authority, we can work with the client to legally resolve the issue, if need be.

I have referred all of my friends and family to Johnson & Johnson. They treat you like family. It is very noticeable that they have been in the business for 3 generations now. My wife and I opened our trust with Johnson and Johnson. They made the process very simple and effective. The peace of mind having a trust with a company that has high integrity is awesome! If you need a probate law firm use these guys.

I have personally never had a more kind, thoughtful and prompt experience with any professional, let alone a law firm. My emails were answered the same day, if not within the same hour! My situation was probate, and I desperately needed representation and some serious advice. I couldn't have found a better attorney in Ryan and I will forever be grateful. In a sad and 'thoughtless' situation, I am so thankful to have called Ryan Johnson. Thank you Ryan. Just.....thank you.
