Elder abuse may occur in many different ways, primarily physical, mental, or financial. Often times well-meaning family members or friends of an elderly person will be accused of abuse without significant justification. Relatives who have volunteered for years to help an aged person, care-givers either at the person╒s home or a board and care facility, children of an elderly parent, and neighbors who look after a widowed or house bound person are just a few of the examples of people who are commonly charged with a Los Angeles elder abuse crime.
In many cases these people are wrongfully charged, but because of the poor memory of the purported victim, the police and prosecutors assume that there has been abuse and will try to convict anyone they believe has abused an elderly person.
Without an aggressive, experienced Los Angeles elder abuse lawyer, you could end up with a criminal conviction on your record, permanently tarnishing your reputation and impacting your future, including your employment opportunities.
