San Mateo Elder Law Attorneys
An increasingly vital practice area of the San Mateo, California lawyers of Anderlini & McSweeney LLP is elder law, an area which encompasses a great variety of legal services specific to the needs of the elderly. Contact our California elder abuse attorneys to schedule a consultation if you believe you or your elderly loved one has suffered from physical elder abuse – including nursing home abuse — or financial fraud by which someone has preyed on the vulnerability of an older person.
Combating Elder Exploitation
Unfortunately, the elderly are often exploited by trusted friends or relatives who convince them to transfer assets including bank accounts, real estate, and other property without fully understanding what they are agreeing to. Our experienced litigation attorneys advocate aggressively for victims of this type of elder fraud.
Advocating for Elderly Discriminated Against Because of Age
Our elder law attorneys handle many other matters on behalf of elderly clients, including age discrimination in employment, health care decisions and protective arrangements, wills and estate planning, and Social Security and insurance law. Our elder law attorneys are well qualified to advocate for older citizens who have been discriminated against in violation of the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) or the Federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA).
Powers of Attorney – Conservatorships – “Living Wills”
In addition, we assist people of any age, but particularly the elderly, in the preparation of durable powers of attorney for health care, conservatorships, “living wills,” and requests to forego resuscitative measures in anticipation of possible future incapacitation due to health crises.
