Our firm handles cases of Elder Abuse involving financial fraud or breach of fiduciary duty, as well as undue influence exercised in the making of a will, trust or other testamentary instrument. Studies have shown that the Elderly are more vulnerable to fraud and dishonesty because they have a diminished capacity to detect dishonesty in others and are forced, due to their lessening capabilities, to place greater reliance upon others to manage their affairs. The perpetrator of Elder Abuse may be a family member, neighbor, caretaker, or financial adviser. California law provides that in cases of Elder Abuse the victim may recover attorney's fees and treble damages in the case of intentional fraudulent or malicious conduct.
If you are a concerned relative or friend of an elderly person you believe is suffering from abuse in the San Diego area, we'd like to hear from you. Contact us online or call us at (858) 259-7790.
