The Guardianship Committee provides awareness of the guardianship statute 11.88 and the intent of the legislature by serving as a forum for the Tacoma-Pierce County Bar Association on related legal issues.
In 2014, the Guardianship Committee won a motion to publish an opinion in In re Cornelius that clarified existing law about a guardian’s authority to make decisions regarding social aspects of an incapacitated person’s life, and clarified the limitations on the rights of family members to serve as guardian for their adult relatives.
