Protecting California’s Aging With Aggressive Legal Action
Steel Zandi represents aging clients who have become the victims of various types of elder abuse. They handle cases of abuse and neglect, including assaults committed against the elderly, but most work focuses on financial abuses suffered by California’s aging population.
Many elderly people are seen as easy targets by scammers. They are often isolated and have a lack of familiarity with financial matters. Many suffer physical or mental disabilities that make them more vulnerable.
Steel Zandi is dedicated to protecting elderly Californians. They are viewed as aggressive trial lawyers who, through years of experience, have developed a history of successful outcomes for their clients.
Elder Financial Abuse
An elderly Los Angeles man received a solicitation from a telemarketer. The deal sounded good and the telemarketer seemed friendly, quoting a reasonable fee. The telemarketer asked for the elderly man’s credit card number and told him the product would be shipped soon. The man willingly complied. It wasn’t until months later that he realized thousands of dollars had been charged to his card without his permission. He learned he’d become the victim of fraud — a devastating type of elder financial abuse.
There are many different types of elder financial abuse. Each takes different forms and is perpetrated by different individuals and companies. Elder financial abuse may start with strangers posing as legitimate businessmen. It may continue with family members and those hired allegedly to provide care. Regardless of the type of elder abuse your loved one has experienced, Matt Zandi is well prepared to help you hold the actors accountable.
