If your loved one has been the victim of financial elder abuse, I can help you. I’m San Diego lawyer Joel R. Bryant, and I have successfully handled many cases where someone has taken unfair financial advantage of an elderly person by lying to them, pretending concern / love / friendship, or pressuring them.
Usually, the deed is put in the name of the abuser, or the abuser is added to the deed.
By adding the abuser to the accounts.
Persuading the elder to buy a too-long annuity, high-risk stock, unneeded insurance, or other unsuitable investment so the professional can get a commission.
Convincing the elder to take out a home loan with overly high fees / interest / penalties, or unaffordable payments.
Sadly, in most cases the abuser is someone the elderly person or their family trusted. They may be a caretaker, family member, friend, attorney, stockbroker, or any other person who gains access to the elder's assets, or who persuades the elder to make an improper investment or take out an unsuitable mortgage. However, all of these abusers can be stopped by taking prompt legal action.
It is extremely important to contact an attorney who is experienced in stopping financial elder abuse as soon as the wrongdoing is discovered in order to minimize the harm, and increase the likelihood of a recovery.
I offer a no-charge telephone consultation and accept financial abuse cases either on contingency or hourly, depending on the situation. You will receive a complete explanation of my services, fees, and related costs (such as court filing fees) in a written agreement for you to review and sign before you hire me.
