Conservator and Conservatorship Lawyers in South Carolina - Fighting for the Rights of Clients
A conservator is someone who is designated by a court to manage the financial affairs of another person who is unable to do so. When someone is incapacitated, disabled, mentally or physically impaired, or can no longer manage his or her financial affairs, a conservator can be appointed to manage that person's assets. However, it's possible that conservators may act in a fraudulent manner or breach their fiduciary duty, leading to a serious probate dispute.
