Elder Abuse – Financial or Physical

San Diego Elder Abuse Attorneys

Elder abuse crimes usually involve fraud (i.e. misuse of checks, credit cards, or bank accounts) or the physical abuse of a family member relative.  California law punishes more severely crimes where the victim is elderly and/or where the accused is in a caregiver relationship with the victim at the time the crimes were committed.  Where the alleged victim(s) are elderly, defense counsel must begin investigating immediately, so that evidence or access to witnesses is not lost.  Further, it is important to fully evaluate and investigate the alleged facts to ensure that the state can prove all elements of the alleged crime.
