Conservatorship – Elderly woman falls prey to internet scam (contested, Sherburne County):
 

  • Client and background: Represented elderly woman whose adult children petitioned for conservatorship after the Client lost a significant amount of money to an internet scam.
  • Strategy: Try to negotiate with the petitioning children and then proceed to a contested hearing if necessary, in order to allow Client to maintain her independence and not have a conservatorship imposed.
  • Result:  After the adult children presented their case as to why Client needed a conservatorship, Cindi made a motion to dismiss their petition on the basis that they had not met their burden of showing Client was unable to manage her own finances. Judge granted Cindi’s motion to dismiss and the Client was able to continue managing her own finances without court supervision.

Cindi did a great job keeping me informed about my case and its progress.

She was very helpful and knowledgeable and helped me understand everything I needed to know to help my divorce proceedings go as smoothly as possible. She was quick to respond to any questions I had. I would highly recommend her to anyone that was looking for a lawyer. – Kerri, divorce client (5 star review)
