Office of Public Guardian

The Office of Public Guardian (OPG) is a non-profit organization uniquely qualified to provide guardianship services in New Hampshire.  OPG has more than 30 years of experience serving as guardian of the person and/or estate to over 4,000 citizens throughout New Hampshire.

OPG was originally established as a state agency in 1979 to provide guardianship for incapacitated residents of Laconia State School and New Hampshire Hospital who had no one available to serve as their guardian.

The Office of Public Guardian became a non-profit organization in 1983 and was designated by the NH Supreme Court pursuant to RSA 547-B as an approved public guardianship agency.  The office contracts with the State of New Hampshire to provide guardianship to some of its most vulnerable indigent citizens, including those with developmental disabilities, mental illness, acquired brain disorders and adults who receive protective services.

As a non-profit organization, OPG may offer its services on a private basis to all individuals in need of guardianship who have an estate with sufficient assets to pay or where there is an alternative payment source.

OPG has an experienced, highly qualified professional staff with specialized training in legal, ethical and treatment issues affecting people with incapacitating conditions.  Members of the professional staff hold national certifications through the Center for Guardianship Certification, including 3 master guardians, the highest designation available.  Our staff meets the requirements of criminal background checks and the office is bonded and insured.

Utilizing a multi-disciplinary professional model, the OPG offers on call availability with guaranteed back-up support 24 hours per day and 365 days per year.  The response time is typically 10 minutes or less.
