An additional year is in the books. Exactly how did it pass so swiftly? It appears like it was simply yesterday that we rated in 2015. All I can chalk it up to is the fact that we’re enjoying what we do currently more than ever.
This year, as a company we served much more customers than in any kind of previous year as well as we feel honored to have played a vital function in acquiring some tremendous results.
One situation that sticks out entailed an elderly widow suffering from sophisticated mental deterioration, whose neighbors persuaded her to sign over title to her the home of them. Our customer, a family member of the widow, asked for that the District Attorney’s workplace prosecute the neighbors, yet was told this was a “civil issue”. We right away submitted a suit alleging economic elder misuse by the neighbors and also at the same time submitted a lis pendens versus the residential property, safeguarding it from being offered by the next-door neighbors or used as security for a loan. After just a couple of months of litigation, we acquired a complete settlement that restored the residential property to the elderly widow.
Unfortunately, instances similar to this are becoming progressively typical, with killers (typically “buddies”, member of the family, caretakers, or next-door neighbors) making use of senior individuals’ reduced mental functions. Luckily, California has several of the toughest legal defenses for elders in the nation, and we find remarkable satisfaction being used those regulations to shield elders versus economic misuse.
