D’Ambrosio Brown Successfully Vindicates Rights of Closely-Knit Family to Make Health Care Decisions for Elderly Relative
Representing members of a closely-knit family, D’Ambrosio Brown Attorneys successfully defended the family’s right to advocate for and obtain the treatment desired by the family’s hospitalized matriarch. A national health care institution initiated a Guardianship Petition in Suffolk County Probate Court, seeking not only to revoke the health care proxy of an elderly and hospitalized woman, but also a judicial order authorizing the cessation of life-sustaining medical treatment. Aggressively litigating on the family’s behalf, D’Ambrosio Brown Attorneys secured dismissal of all requests for relief of the health care institution.
