Case #: 20********C*********
The Client was charged with Exploitation of an Elderly Person after law enforcement believed he was stealing his parents money while living with them. The Firm was retained to help and immediately began pouring through the voluminous evidence in the case, mostly consisting of bank records and witness statements of other family members. After the Firm’s investigation, the Defense uncovered that what appeared to be over $5,000.00 in unrecovered monies, was in fact, at most, possibly around $300.00. In addition, the Firm argued to the State that it couldn’t be established that this money wasn’t used to take care of the Client’s parents. This fact, combined with the fact that the parents had signed a very broad power of attorney in order to allow the Client to take care of them, convinced the State Attorney’s Office to drop all criminal charges.
