Our name is derived from the Italian word consul. A consul served as a magistrate or governor, which provided stewardship to the people. Thus we established Konsulati to serve as steward of person to protect the elderly and disabled by acting as their private fiduciary and personal representative.

The 2010 U.S. Census estimates that there are 40.3 million people 65 years of age or older -- an increase of 5 million since 2000.  Pew Research Center (PRC) projects that are that 10,000 people who will turn 65 every day for 19 years beginning in 2011.  Not surprisingly, PRC expects our nation's elderly population will climb to 81 million by 2050. To make aging a little more difficult in America, Gallup Survey reports that 21% of all Americans have moved away from their home town at some point.  This means that aging parents are left alone, or sadly forgotten, so that the children can prosper in other cities.

Scales of JusticeIt is important to understand that we are not attorneys. The perception is that private professional fiduciaries are experienced with legal matters but that in no way makes us qualified, nor licensed, to act or give legal advice.

Powers of Attorney

Under common law, a power of attorney becomes ineffective if its grantor dies or becomes "incapacitated," meaning unable to grant such a power, because of physical injury or mental illness, for example, unless the grantor (or principal) specifies that the power of attorney will continue to be effective even if the grantor becomes incapacitated. This type of power of attorney is called "power of attorney with durable provisions" in the United States or "enduring power of attorney" elsewhere. In effect, under a durable power of attorney (DPoA)[1]  >>

Estate or Trust Administration

A trustee will manage investments, keep records, manage assets, prepare court accountings, pay bills (depending on the nature of the trust) medical expenses, charitable gifts, inheritances or other distributions of income and principal. Trustees are not required to exercise all of the powers that they are granted.[2] A trustee can manage any number of trust types, including Charitable, Special Needs Trusts, ILIT, Corporate, and Estate Trusts. >>

Conservator / Committee

The term conservatorship is synonymous with elderly guardian but used mostly in the western United States. It is a court-appointed process that can be very expensive as the petitioners and proposed conservatee all must be represented by attorneys, with just a few exceptions for in pro per family members without objections. The reason for the expense is that the proposed conservatee's estate is expected to bear the burden of the court costs in the procedures to appoint.>>
