LMM has been a provider of legal guardianship for over 30 years to Cuyahoga and Lorain County residents. Our Guardians are proud to support and advocate for older adults who need us most.

Guardians are essential for vulnerable adults, as they look after the emotional, social, financial and physical well-being of these individuals and advocate for the least restrictive living environment for them possible.
