Supported Decision Making Agreements
Please join us for a conversation with Attorney Victoria Davis Dávila on the spectrum of decision-making options available for people with disabilities, ranging from the least restrictive informal supports all the way up to full guardianship. Focused on Wisconsin's Supported Decision Making law, we will discuss who is eligible to use supported decision-making agreements, their establishment and termination, the role and responsibility of the "supporter," functions and limitations of the agreements, protections available for creators, and practical use of the agreements for people with disabilities, their families, and the professionals who work with them.
A 2011 Graduate of Marquette University Law School, attorney Davis Dávila has dedicated her legal career to supporting individuals with disabilities and their families through the life span. She has a particular passion for children’s legal issues, including helping children get the placement, special education services, government benefits, and other support they need to thrive. She also enjoys walking families through the complicated process of transitioning a child with special needs into the adult world, including decision-making options like powers of attorney, supported decision-making agreements, or guardianship. She regularly represents the best interests of children and adults with disabilities as a guardian ad litem. She volunteers as an attorney at the Marquette Volunteer Legal Clinic. She is also a member of the State Superintendent’s Council on Special Education.
