“Guardianship in Nebraska – An Updated View”

This presentation will take a look at the foundation for guardianship law, both historically and legislatively, and its application in current practice, and where the law is likely to go.  It is essentially a primer on guardianship, and the aspect of capacity which is supposed to be the primary concern with respect to the institution of a guardianship. From the standpoint of attorneys, probably the most significant thing that has come to our agency’s concern has to do with attorneys who, having been appointed as guardians, charging fees at an attorney’s hourly rate for performing services that are general guardian duties (eg., seeking attorney’s fees rates for doing grocery shopping with/for a ward).

Mr. Michael J. Elsken is graduate of Northern Illinois University (1979) and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Law (1982).  He had a private practice in Lincoln for approximately 19 years, and then became a Staff Attorney for Disability Rights Nebraska (formerly Nebraska Advocacy Services, Inc.), since 2002.  He is engaged in a broad range of “protection and advocacy” activities for the agency on behalf of individuals with disabilities in the State of Nebraska.

Approved for 1.0 CLE cr. hr.
