The Project

My project allows me to provide free legal services to senior citizens in three San Francisco-area counties. The focus of my project is to represent the low- to no-income elder victims of financial abuse in areas including real estate, credit card and construction frauds, and lottery scams. To proactively combat elder financial abuse, my project includes educating the public and law enforcement agencies by defining elder financial abuse, offering tips on how to protect seniors, and describing the various resources that are available to seniors.
