This is a show about financial elder abuse.  As the elderly population continues to grow, and the economy remains tight, some people see senior citizens and elder folks in their 70's, 80's, 90s and even in the 100'3 as their quick ticket to easy street.   These are financial predators that must be stopped.  Possible predators include:

  • The ruthless relative (ex. children)
  • The slimy salesperson (ex. car salesman, insurance salesman, investment advisor, the stock broker)
  • The predatory professional (ex. accountants, CPA's, attorneys, lawyers, financial planners)
  • The conniving caretaker (ex. nurse)
  • Others in a close position of trust or fiduciary relationship (ex. a trustee)

This is not even to mention all of the online scams directed toward the elderly which Attorney Steve will mention a few.

Listen in as Attorney Steve gives a general legal overview of California financial elder abuse law under the California Welfare & Institutions Code 15657.10.

What you learn could help you protect your loved ones from some of the financial abuses, online scams and identity theft schemes that target your loved ones.

Where elder abuse can be shown, you may be entitled to damages, costs, attorney fees, compensation for personal injury or wrongful death, punitive damages, restitution, and other available remedies.

The law is also interesting as it allows pre-judgement writ of attachment of Defendant's real property and certain other non-exepmt assets.  This is potentially a very powerful provisional remedy.
