The Project

Provide legal services for elder clients who have been victims of financial elder abuse. Specifically, I address real estate and consumer frauds issues.

Need Addressed By Project
The project provides civil representation to elder victims of financial abuse. Often times, private attorneys lack capacity or resources to take on these cases. Thus, we are are providing elders with access to justice.
