Taft partner Sarah Jenkins has been selected to serve on the Steering Committee for the American Bar Association (ABA) Commission on Law and Aging and the National Disability Rights Network’s (NDRN) new project on Guardianship and Technology. It is a three-year project funded by the State Justice Institute. The goal of the project is to establish business and technical requirements to increase courts’ ability to monitor guardianships and conservatorships, with the aim of increasing transparency and decreasing mismanagement and abuses. Jenkins previously served on Indiana’s Guardianship Registry Committee, working with the Division of State Court Administration’s Judicial Technology and Automation Committee (JTAC) to develop a software that would assist courts in tracking and monitoring guardianships throughout the state.
Jenkins is an experienced litigator who works closely with her clients to guide them through commercial, appellate, and wealth transfer litigation, including guardianships. She has represented a wide range of clients, including individuals, nonprofits, banks, financial institutions, and insurance companies through a variety of disputes.
