Experienced Legal Representation for Victims of Elder Abuse in Marin County
At Evans Law Firm, Inc., we represent seniors and families of seniors who have fallen victim to elder abuse in Marin County. We handle cases involving nursing homes and other types of assisted living facilities, as well as cases involving abusive caregivers in-home care, financial fraud and other circumstances. Elder abuse can take many forms, and we are able to help seniors and families in cases involving:
- Physical abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Neglect or abandonment
- Psychological or emotional abuse
- Financial abuse

While most people think of abuse as an overt act (such as physically hitting or sexually assaulting a senior citizen living in a nursing home), abuse can also involve deprivation. Depriving seniors of access to nutrition, hydration, hygiene, social interaction, family, medical care and other basic needs are all very serious forms of elder abuse as well.
