The Project

Eric Charette provided legal assistance to older adults in order to assist victims of abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation and empower disenfranchised individuals so that they can secure the justice they deserve.

Abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation of older adults is an unfortunately growing problem that is grossly under reported and thus, victims of these abuses are underserved. The older adult population is in need of accessible legal assistance in order to give them the power, resources, and protection necessary to confront their abusers and secure justice for themselves.
