This can be children, grandchildren, even brothers and sisters. For example, a recent case in San Francisco surrounds a couple financially abused by their daughter. The couple alleges that the daughter convinced the couple to name her as the power of attorney, and then manipulated the couple into transferring $1.5 million of real property to her. When asked, she refused to give it back. If you or a loved one has been the victim of financial elder abuse, please call Evans Law Firm today at (415)441-8669 and we can help.
