Protect Elders’ Dignity and Hold Abusers Accountable
When loved ones, caregivers and medical professionals act in good faith, they can serve elders well by keeping them safe and well cared for. Unfortunately, people caring for an elderly person sometimes abuse their positions to commit elder financial abuse and fraud.
At Walton Law Group, we take elder abuse very seriously. We pride ourselves on our ability to generate unusual, highly creative solutions to complicated legal matters. Are you an adult child or grandchild of an elder who has been exploited? Are you a caring friend or a professional helper (like a social worker, therapist or member of the clergy) who has become aware that the older adult you watch out for has been abused by someone? Our law firm is committed to the pursuit of justice for older adults.
We Stand up for Our Clients and for What Is Right
We have a long and successful record challenging various types of financial frauds against elders. These abuses sometimes come to light while we are contesting wills. Time and again, we have been able to show that one party exerted undue influence over an elder’s decisions and finances.
It’s important to us to meet our clients’ needs and to do right by the elder involved – or their estate. We maintain a strong focus on the assets in question so they may be recovered whenever possible. We will help you and your family seek punitive damages for emotional harm that your elder parent and others in the family have suffered, whether you have discovered this damage before or after the person’s death.
Understanding Dynamics That May Lead to Elder Abuse and Exploitation
The autumn years of one’s life can be a perilous time. While some seniors remain independent and healthy for many years, others must rely on help from family members, caregivers and medical professionals over time.
We understand that every family and every elder’s saga is unique. Legal disputes often require sophisticated solutions that weave through a family’s private politics. When you come to us for legal advice, we don’t just want to know what form of abuse triggered your search for a lawyer. We want to understand your goals so that we can design a legal strategy that will help you accomplish them.
