Undue Influence

Undue Influence is an area of law that pertains to elder abuse in where a person takes advantage of an elder generally through financial gain. If you or someone you know is the victim of elder abuse please give us a call and we can direct you to one of our attorneys who specialize in elder abuse.  Please do not wait as time is of essence since we sometimes do not know how long the victimization has been going on. It is time to take action and stop the bleeding!  Of course, everything will be confidential and we will help you remain anonymous as well.  These types of undue influence cases can be very ugly and generally large sums of money can be taken from the victim under false pretenses and this the reason we say to call us right away.  We have experienced investigators who are either active or retired police officers who know how to deal with these types of cases.  A lot of times, people will take their case to the police and little is done because the case is dismissed as being civil when in fact it is most likely criminal but convoluted in effort to throw off the police.

The police always try their best however they lack the manpower to fully investigate such cases and white collar crimes usually are last in priority due to all the violent crimes happening in today’s society.  We can help show you how to block bank accounts, we can show you how to get the proper restraining order, we can show you how to get conservatorship along with other ways to stop the person or persons to stop taking advantage of an elder.  In many cases, it is the elder’s own loved ones who are the closest to the elder who are doing bad things to take advantage of the elder. We have seen this many times and yes it does get ugly but the only way to stop it is to take action.  If you’re not going to be actionable then things will not change and the worse it gets.  All you have to do is give us a call and we will guide you in the right direction.  Keep in mind, these types of cases are not handled over night they sometimes take a long time to tackle so do not wait any longer give us a call.

Elder Abuse

Elder abuse in the year 2016 is something which happens all to frequently but perhaps not in the way you may think.  Because we’re in the baby boomer period and so a lot of courts are seeing their case loads tripling.  The problem here is the courts find that most cases hinge on civil vs. criminal charges.  Truth be told, most D.A.’s don’t really want to take the chance on charging people with elder abuse mostly due to the victim being elderly and refusing to prosecute their wrong doers.  What we’ve seen is a lot of elders own adult children have wiped out their bank accounts, tricked their parents into signing over property and even going as far to file false executed documents with the court to become the executor and or trustee over their will or estate.  Generally, we call this adult child the wicked one, as the good adult child will come forward and report their siblings wrong doing.  Or, what happens someone will report Adult Protective Services and the police, thus, a case is filed and the authorities step in.

Well, because a lot of elders are tricked and or duped into opening a co-joining bank account by the wicked adult child or children it makes it a civil issue and most D.A.’s won’t touch the case criminally.  There is such a thing as financial elder abuse but it must be egregious in nature and their must be evidence with the victim being mentally competent before a prosecution takes place.  Where we come in is simple, we meet with your attorney to obtain all the facts and then start an interview process with the elder and any possible witnesses.  Then we look at the forensics and obtain all the necessary paperwork in order to make our case.  On occasions the police may become involved dependent on the circumstances. Our mission, is to recover for the elder who has been abused. We have been very successful in recovering for victims.  Our cases involve the recovery of millions of dollars in liquidity and property.

We cannot reveal our trade secrets here but we will work with your attorney in order to put forward our best effort. If you do not have an attorney we can refer you to one that will help you.  Merely, give us a call and we will get down to business and get things started right away, the longer you wait the worse things could get, so take the time to make the call!
