Protecting A Parent Or Other Elderly Person Can Require Legal Assistance

Because much of the elderly population is physically or mentally vulnerable, family members, caregivers, fiduciaries and criminals often target the elderly. As the baby boomer generation ages, elder abuse continues to increase.

At the law office of Torzewski & McInerney, LLC, we work to protect the rights of the elderly. Our Morris County elder law attorneys have the legal and financial experience to prevent and stop elder abuse. Whether you are a concerned family member or an individual who is suffering elder abuse, please speak with a lawyer to learn how we may help you.

We have extensive litigation experience in estate disputes. When a resolution cannot be reached outside of court, we are always prepared to litigate to protect your interests. Call or use our online contact form to schedule a meeting.

Financial Matters, Estate Planning And Abuse

Our elder law practice includes estate planning, estate administration and probate litigation. We also assist people with obtaining guardianships for elderly adults who are mentally or physically incapacitated. We have experience with contested guardianships and can represent alleged incapacitated individuals who are challenging another party's attempt to become their legal guardian.

In addition, we can resolve cases involving matters such as:

  • Financial abuse by criminals, trustees, family members or predatory lenders
  • Undue influence or misappropriation of assets
  • Nursing home abuse
  • Long-term health care and insurance issues

If an elderly individual has suffered emotional, physical or financial abuse, we will take steps to end the abuser's power. Depending on the case, this may include the termination of a guardianship or powers of attorney. In some cases, filing restraining orders may be necessary to protect the individual.

When an elderly person has been the victim of fraud or other financial abuse, we will work to recover assets and return them to the estate. Our experience with probate and trust litigation means that we can take complex cases, going to trial when that is in our clients' best interests.
