Taking Action Against Negligence & Abuse
Financial abuse of the elderly is an act of injustice that my firm strongly believes should never happen. As some of the most vulnerable members of society, elders should be taken care of with the highest degree of honor and respect. When your loved one’s finances have been abused by someone who has been placed in a role of trust or authority, action must be taken.
Elder abuse cases can arise from the following:
- Breach of contract
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Failure to uphold the role of executor or trustee
- Appointment and removal of a guardian
If you have been accused of acting in a way that is allegedly wrong or unlawful, I can also represent you. I have the proven litigation skills that are needed to help protect your name and assert your rights for acting correctly and in accordance with your loved one’s wishes – and most importantly, the law.

Do not let a dispute negatively affect the well-being of your family. Instead, focus on how an attorney can provide an avenue of relief for your family during this challenging time.
If your loved one’s finances have been abused because of a breach of trust, you should attempt to take legal action as soon as possible. Such a violation can be among the worst types of betrayal, and I work hard to ensure that justice is secured for you and your loved one.
