Elder Financial Abuse and Undue Influence

When someone you care about has died, it can be devastating to learn that he or she was taken advantage of during life. Unfortunately, many families find out that a friend, family member or caretaker tricked a loved one into transferring assets out of an estate only after it is too late.

The Los Angeles elder law attorneys at the Law Office of Hugh Duff Robertson P.C. are committed to helping ensure your loved one’s assets are distributed in the way he or she intended. We are well-equipped to pursue cases of undue influence and to protect our clients through estate litigation when necessary.
