024: Conservatorships: Powerful Protective Proceedings


In a new episode of Absolute Trust Talk, guest, Konstantine “Kosta” Demiris, joins Kirsten to discuss all things conservatorship. Kosta has a wealth of experience in all aspects of litigation. He has tried hundreds of cases involving trust, estate, probate, conservatorship, guardianship, elder abuse and fraud, real property and HOAs, family law, dependency, criminal law, and unlawful detainer matters.

An experienced practitioner in conservatorship law, Kosta discusses with Kirsten why clients enter into these types of proceedings and why they can be useful in protecting a loved one. They then turn the tables and explain why one should do their homework before pursuing a conservatorship, how they can go wrong, and why one should first try to look for other possible avenues outside of these types of proceedings.
