Over the past few years, “conservatorship” has become a popular buzz word and the topic of many discussions in the media. With this new-found attention on conservatorships, California lawmakers have been busy, passing multiple bills and changing the landscape of how conservatorships are established, managed, and supervised in California Probate Courts. Although there is some criticism of the restrictive nature of conservatorships, these proceedings are designed to protect California residents who cannot properly manage their own affairs. 

Our guest, Joseph Gruber, Jr., Esq., answers our initial question—what is a conservatorship—and so much more.
