What is a Guardian ad Litem (GAL):

A GAL is an individual or agency appointed by the court at the inception of or during a proceeding. They are appointed by the court to represent the best interest of a vulnerable adult during the course of litigation. Their responsibilities may include:

  • providing information and advice to the vulnerable adult
  • conducting an investigation
  • making a written report
  • giving recommendations to the court about what is in the vulnerable adults best interest

In what types of cases might a GAL be appointed?

A GAL can be appointed in all cases in which a party or interested individual cannot adequately represent his or her own interest. WGC focuses on appointments in adult guardianship and conservatorship. These matters are brought to the court through a petition by an attorney.
