Protecting Against Financial Abuse And Fraud

Elder abuse, financial abuse and fraud are among some of the most difficult challenges you or your loved one may face as they hit old age. There may seem like little you can do when individuals, employers or businesses defraud the elderly — but at Kinley & Styskal, we take every available measure available under the law to seek justice and protect those over 65 years of age against fraud and abuse.

Our attorneys will aggressively advocate for you or your loved one in negotiations, in an attempt to resolve these matters quickly and efficiently. But when these measures fail, we are always prepared to go to court to get the results you deserve. Civil penalties can range from restitution to the payment of treble damages and fines.

Types Of Financial Abuse Or Fraud

Financial abuse includes the taking of money as well as personal property or real property.
