The Guilford County Clerk of Court’s office is in need of attorneys to sign up as Public Guardians for individuals determined to be incompetent. When an individual is adjudicated incompetent and that individual has assets, that individual is in need of a guardian for their estate. The role of the Public Guardian is to pay the bills/expenses for the incompetent individual and to account for any expenditures. A Public Guardian is only appointed when the incompetent individual has assets and no one else qualifies or is identified to serve on behalf of the incompetent individual. A Public Guardian receives a fee and/or a percentage of the monies received through the estate of the incompetent individual.
If you are interested in serving as a Public Guardian, please contact Lisa Johnson-Tonkins, Elected Clerk of Court for Guilford County, at (336) 412-7301 or [email protected]. Thank you.
