Florida Lawyer Serves as Guardian ad Litem to Represent Children in Litigation
Court-appointed attorney advocates for minors and others in the Bradenton area
Children are not capable of hiring someone to represent their legal interests when family disputes such as divorce affect their well-being. In these situations, courts will designate a guardian ad litem to ensure that their rights are protected. At Lisa Bell, PA, I have the experience, knowledge and compassion to deliver comprehensive representation to minors and other individuals in the Bradenton area and throughout Florida who cannot advocate for themselves.
Florida law firm provides a full range of services for youths
At Lisa Bell, PA, I perform a variety of necessary functions in my role as guardian ad litem including:
- Representation in court — Upon appointment by the court, I advocate for children in hearings and trials. When necessary, I examine witnesses and argue motions in the same manner as other parties to the litigation.
- Evaluation of pertinent information — As a guardian ad litem, I take my role seriously and review every relevant document in order to understand what is best for the child. I also petition the court to get access to certain materials when appropriate.
- Contact with key individuals — I can obtain professional medical advice when it is required. If others have knowledge that will help the court’s evaluation of the child’s welfare, I can also consult them.
I perform each task with the appropriate proficiency and sensitivity so that the children my firm represents can move forward with the least possible disruption.
