WARREN - Trumbull County Probate Judge Thomas A. Swift has been chosen to speak at the World Congress of Adult Guardianship to be held in Washington, D.C.
A panel, which includes Swift, will make presentations on court models. His presentation will focus on the Trumbull County Senior Court, an innovative court project he began in 2010, and the only court of its type in the nation.
The World Congress of Adult Guardianship is an international gathering of those involved in guardianship.
Swift developed the senior court to divert municipal and county court cases for people ages 60 and older, from formal court proceedings, and seek solutions that preserve the dignity and legal rights of seniors, while considering the community's needs and safety.
