Sidney C. Summey Certified as a National Certified Guardian

Sidney C. Summey of White Arnold & Dowd P.C. has been certified as a National Certified Guardian. He recently completed the Certification Exam given in Las Vegas, NV, by the Center for Guardianship Certification.

Mr. Summey leads the firm’s probate practice group and also serves as Jefferson County Conservator and Guardian. With this certification, he becomes the only National Certified Guardian in central Alabama.

The Center for Guardianship Certification was created in 1994 as an allied foundation of the National Guardianship Association to enhance the quality of guardianship services through national certification. CGC views certification not as the end, but as a means to demonstrate to the public, clients, and the courts that the certified guardian has sufficient skill, knowledge and understanding of the universal guardianship principles to be worthy of the responsibility entrusted to him or her.
