Elder Abuse

Palos Verdes Elder Fraud Lawyers

We are supposed to grow old with peace and dignity. However, unfortunately some elderly people become victims of financial abuse. A family member, friend, caregiver, or a complete stranger, can take advantage of a trusting senior. This can result in the draining of bank accounts, re-titling of different assets, theft of family heirlooms or undue influence in the creation of a will, trust or deed.
