Protecting Elderly Adults Against Abuse

If you suspect an elderly relative is being abused by a caretaker or family member, you are not alone — and you do not have to handle it alone. One in 10 older Americans may suffer some form of abuse, according to the National Center on Elder Abuse. Unfortunately, many people may never report abuse. If you suspect you or an elderly relative is being abused, our attorney can help you hold the abuser accountable.

Tetley Law Offices is committed to protecting vulnerable adults in Southern California who have been abused in any way, including:

  • Financial abuse or exploitation
  • Neglect
  • Abduction
  • Physical abuse
  • Psychological abuse

Depending on your situation, we may assist in getting a restraining order against the abusing person, refer the case to Adult Protective Services (APS) or seek other solutions. In some cases, banks may also be held accountable if they do not report suspicious behavior.

With decades of experience in family law as well as elder law, we can also assist with elder abuse cases in the context of divorce or other complex legal situations. We understand that suspected elder abuse is an emotional issue, and we will provide calm, compassionate guidance to make sure you and your loved ones are legally protected.
