Limited Capacity seats available

Elder financial abuse is a particularly insidious and reprehensible crime because the elderly victim is unlikely to recover from the financial losses in his or her lifetime. Armed with knowledge of legal strategies and tools to use in elder abuse cases, attorneys can better help their clients obtain important relief and avoid further harm. This session will provide information on key legal strategies. Presenters will also share new resources from the National Center on Law & Elder Rights (NCLER) and CANHR. CANHR, through a California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services grant, produced and published a California Restitution Guide for Professionals and a Restitution Guide for Consumers. The Professional guide sets forth what professionals need to know about the criminal and civil proceedings along with information on non-judicial remedies and services to aid victims of abuse. NCLER recently developed a California Financial Exploitation Guide for legal aid attorneys. Attendees will receive copies of the guides.
