In proceedings where a guardian and/or conservator is sought for an allegedly incapacitated person, the Circuit Court appoints a guardian ad litem (GAL). This publication provides procedural and practical information for litigators, family lawyers, trust and estate lawyers, and elder law practitioners involved in proceedings with GALs appointed to represent incapacitated persons.
