San Francisco and California Elder Abuse Attorney: Elder and Dependent Adult Abuse Restraining Orders

ATTORNEY NEWSLETTER

Restraining Orders Protect Victims

What Evans Law Firm Can Do To Help

Restraining orders are a powerful tool in the fight to protect seniors and dependent adults from abuse. Sadly, seniors and dependent adults are vulnerable to all manner of abuse: financial, physical, sexual, and emotional/psychological[1] and restraining orders require persons inflicting abuse to stay away from you and your home. The California elder abuse attorneys at Evans Law Firm, Inc. help victims obtain restraining orders where that special protection is needed.  Learn more about restraining orders and how our lawyers can help here: https://www.evanslaw.com/practice-areas/physical-elder-abuse/elder-abuse-restraining-orders/.

San Francisco courts do not charge a fee for restraining orders for elder and dependent adults. The City and County of San Francisco maintain a specific website where you can learn more: https://sfsuperiorcourt.org/divisions/civil/elder.  Our San Francisco and California elder abuse attorneys can represent you in either a full representation or a limited representation to obtain a restraining order.  If you or someone you know is the victim of elder abuse in San Francisco and need a restraining order, call the California elder abuse lawyers at Evans Law Firm: 415-441-8669.  Procedures vary in other counties in California and some offer self-help clinics.  In Los Angeles County, for example, visit https://www.bettzedek.org/events/elder-abuse-restraining-order-clinic/.

Always act immediately on your suspicions of abuse. Alert the police and Adult Protective Services of any suspected abuse and reach out to counsel such as the elder and dependent adult abuse lawyers at Evans Law Firm.  Our lawyers can help you obtain a restraining order and will pursue all remedies for victims which include restitution (getting your money back), rescission (undoing wrongful and fraudulent contracts), extra damages (known as punitive damages), and award of attorneys’ fees and costs incurred in bringing wrongdoers to court by a civil complaint.
