Most elderly or incapacitated individuals need a responsible individual, usually a family member or close friend, to maintain their finances. Unfortunately, even if the individual is a professional at managing finances, there is the possibility that they may take advantage of the assets at their disposal and use them for their own benefit, instead of the benefit of the elderly person.
Financial Elder Abuse
If you are concerned that another individual is taking financial advantage of a loved one, we can help. At Brasier Law, LLC, we work with clients in Oregon and SW Washington and all the surrounding areas to see that financial abuse is stopped. In addition to handling financial abuse cases, we also handle cases involving the physical abuse of elders. In some cases, physical abuse and financial abuse are both occurring at the same time, resulting in a very serious situation. Call 503-855-4777 to schedule a free phone consultation or contact us online.
Elderly people are especially vulnerable to individuals who attempt to take advantage of them financially. Dementia and other physical or mental conditions may affect their judgment, leaving them unable to know the difference between someone who is helping them organize their finances and someone who is attempting to financially exploit and defraud them.
Our firm can work with clients who have become involved in many different types of situations in a variety of situations, such as dealing with the exploitation and removing a trustee, guardian, or conservator if necessary. We also take the time to explain to clients what constitutes financial exploitation and how you can take steps to prevent this from happening to your loved one in the future.
