Oakland is the county seat of Alameda County, California and is the eighth largest city in California. Oakland, and all of Alameda County, is also the home to the “largest population of impoverished seniors in the state,” according to the Oakland Institute.
Many seniors struggle to live comfortably in Oakland, which is home to almost 420,000 people and has the fifth largest cluster of elite zip codes in the United States. Elite zip codes are determined by both income and education, and Oakland is among the top 20 U.S. cities when it comes to household income and the number of residents with bachelors’ degrees.
It is not just seniors who experience difficulty with affording life in Oakland. One problem for some Oakland residents is not that they weren’t able to save enough, but that they were given bad financial advice or even were victimized by securities fraud.

Securities Fraud, Insurance Fraud and Financial Fraud Victims Have Rights
Oakland is one of the most diverse cities in the United States, and it has a thriving economy. It is also home to the fifth busiest port in the entire United States. Because of the fact so many people in Oakland have a high net worth, those who want to engage in financial scams, including securities and insurance fraud offenses, often have a large number of potential targets in Oakland.
This can result in many different so-called financial professionals or companies engaging in deceptive tactics to separate people in Alameda County from their hard-earned money. Evan’s Law can help those who were harmed to stand up and fight for justice from those who wronged them.
