Vulnerable seniors face many challenges.
The problems people face as they age often go unnoticed. From abuse to unfair evictions, vulnerable seniors face injustice in many forms.
1 in 10 older people experience abuse.
Over 1 in 3 seniors have gone without basic necessities like food to pay for healthcare.
$36.5 billion is lost every year by senior victims of financial abuse.
Our older community members deserve better.
Seniors are an integral part of our communities. They’re parents. Grandparents. Your next-door neighbor.
We believe they deserve access to fair treatment and a respected place in the community. Our legal team dedicates itself to making that vision a reality in San Diego and Imperial Counties.
