We’re passionate about advocating for the rights and well-being of individuals with developmental disabilities. Guardian Advocacy is a crucial legal avenue for ensuring their dignity, security, and care. Whether it’s autism, spina bifida, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, or any other childhood diagnosis accompanied by cognitive impairment, we’re here to guide you through the process.

What is Guardian Advocacy?

Guardian Advocacy offers a streamlined approach to appoint an advocate while prioritizing efficiency and respect. Unlike traditional guardianship procedures, Guardian Advocacy eliminates the need for court-appointed examinations and formal determinations of incapacity. Instead, it empowers individuals through a process facilitated by a statement from qualified medical professionals.

This approach not only upholds the dignity of individuals with developmental disabilities but also proves to be more cost-effective and less restrictive. Guardian Advocacy stands as a vital legal tool to ensure that the rights and interests of those with disabilities are protected under Florida law.
