Fortunately the court must appoint an attorney to represent you in an incapacity proceeding where you are alleged to be incapacitated, so your rights will be protected by that attorney. However, you also have the right to hire and substitute in an attorney of your choice. If you don't believe that you're incapacitated and a petition for incapacity has been filed on you, it is vital that you consult with an attorney at your earliest convenience.
