A Law Practice Dedicated to Defending the Rights of the Elderly
One of the reasons I started this firm was to use my trial skills to address the problems and injuries of our elders and their families. The Baby Boomer Generation is my generation. The problems they experience as they age are my family’s problems, too.
The need for advocacy for the aging is acute. The problem is not just that the aging population is increasing dramatically and living much longer –the real problem is there are increasingly fewer of us to care about them. Family bonds are fragmented by both distance and divorce. Government services are a poor substitute for family care. As a result, many of our oldest are abandoned to a health care system set up to profit from their care.
All this leads one to ask: what’s the value of our elders? Why do they matter? I started to this practice to answer this question, and my answer is this: it’s only the bonds of trust and loyalty that hold our communities together. If we are to have strong communities, we must stand for those values. I believe that by representing those who are aging, along with their families, I can best work to protect those values. I believe by standing up for the weakest among us, we best show our strength.
