Passionate Advocacy, Individualized Planning, Personalized Results

Bridging Life's GAPS

Alexandra V. Rieman and Michelle R. Kenney formed GAPS Legal, PLLC to provide legal services to help you bridge the GAPS of life that arise when an individual requires care, planning, or end of life arrangements. Our legal services are focused on individual circumstances for unique individuals. We can guide you through Guardianship or Guardian Advocate proceedings to best protect the interests and wellbeing of your loved one. We feel strongly about educating you on the importance of Planning for loved ones with Special Needs, helping you to put a plan together, putting a plan into motion, and ensuring that all interests are protected in the event that your estate needs to be Probated. Failure to plan results in much heartache and stress. Let’s work together to adequately and properly care for you and your loved ones’ futures. Take the first step with us to explore your options. 

Guardianship or Guardian Advocacy may be appointed by a court in various scenarios involving individuals under the age of 18, individuals over the age of 18 who have special needs, or those with physical or mental impairments or disabilities. The Guardianship and Guardian Advocacy proceedings are very lengthy processes that require the use of an attorney to effectively and efficiently protect the best interests of the individual that requires assistance. Having a skilled and experienced attorney to help you navigate the process provides you with support and comfort knowing that you are in good hands.

Losing a loved one is never easy. Handling the formalities of their affairs, unfortunately, coincides and interferes with the grieving process. If a loved one has left behind property or assets, the Court may need to order the transfer of such property or assets to the individual’s heirs or beneficiaries. The type of court proceeding to distribute the property or assets will depend on a number of different factors, including whether or not your loved one had a Will. Let us take the stress and burden of probating your loved one’s estate off of your shoulders. We can help you determine the best course of action for your situation so that you can return to honoring your loved one’s memory. 

Individuals with special needs often require advance planning for their unique future considerations. While many family members commit themselves to the care of individuals with special needs, further planning needs to be made in the event that the family member is no longer around or able to provide care. Advance planning is the cornerstone of making your wishes known to your family and loved ones when you are no longer able to make decisions. It also offers the opportunity to protect the financial future of a family member who has special needs.

Planning for the future is difficult. No one wants to think about the “what ifs.”
GAPS Legal, PLLC helps you consider the unknowns in a caring and compassionate environment. We provide you with individualized solutions to your financial and medical “what ifs” to avoid court, save money, and give you and your family peace of mind.​
