The Project

Jahna provided representation to elder victims of abuse, neglect, and exploitation. She served the needs of elder victims of abuse, neglect, and exploitation in New York City, working with multi-disciplinary teams of professionals on elder abuse cases, contributing to elder abuse screening practices, and conducting informational training for professionals and community members on elder abuse and how to fight it.

 

There isn’t always a clear answer to fixing elder abuse because each case is uniquely complex and requires medical-legal-social solutions be woven delicately together.
