Legal protection for vulnerable Florida seniors

Florida seniors who consult an experienced lawyer with an in-depth understanding of elder law and the legal parameters involved can be reassured that they are making informed decisions about their healthcare and finances. If we determine that elder abuse or fraud is an issue, we can help you take appropriate legal action in situations including:

  • Financial exploitation — Elderly people are often vulnerable to financial exploitation because many of them depend on others. By planning ahead and making legal arrangements, they are protected against those who would take advantage of them and safeguarded from making poor decisions themselves.
  • Nursing home abuse — Unfortunately, nursing home abuse is fairly common. A Florida elder law attorney can help you understand whether a nursing home’s standard of care meets legal requirements or whether nursing home staff is violating a patient's rights. We know that dealing with nursing homes and assisted living homes can be emotionally trying for family members, and we can help ensure their loved ones are receiving the care they deserve.

Whether you are concerned about your elderly parents and want to help them put legal plans in place, or you are a senior who needs legal counsel, Gierach and Gierach, P.A. can provide compassionate and effective legal guidance and representation.
