Financial Elder Abuse

Financial Elder Abuse is a quasi-criminal act and is civilly punished under a combination of the probate code and the Welfare and Institutions Code and The Elder Abuse and Dependent Adult Civil Protection Act.  Most Elder Financial Abuse is discovered after the elder has passed away.  The abuse is usually discovered during a trust administration or probate and is usually handled in a probate court.  When the elder is still alive, the action is usually brought to Civil Court. To determine whether the circumstances and facts regarding the abuse are punishable, further insight into the relationship between the caretaker and the elder will be needed. Because of the complexities involved in each case, it is highly recommended that the heirs or family of the elder or deceased work quickly with a knowledgeable attorney to prevent the dissipation of the assets.

If you are concerned about an elder, act quickly and call Adult Protective Services (APS) in the county where the elder resides and inform them of your suspicions. It is better to be a little embarrassed over a falsely identified claim of wrongdoing than it is to see your loved ones suffer at the hands of a wrongdoer. Elder Abuse, financial or physical, is a growing problem in our county.  If the elder has passed and the bad actor is taking or has taken their assets, you can stop them and recover the assets, and often have them pay additional damages and legal fees.

At The Sterling Law Group, A.P.C. our financial elder abuse attorney understands you, your family, and the process you go through, even the psychological toll that comes during the process.  Contact us now and schedule an appointment.
