Hire an elder abuse defense attorney who cares about your rights and your future
Being accused of elder abuse can be extremely upsetting. If you are a nurse or other professional caregiver, even an allegation of elder abuse could be damaging to your career, and a conviction would be devastating. If you are an individual accused of harming a family member in your care, the situation could bring a lot of emotional pain and damage your family relationships.
At Perlmutter & Pourshalimi, we understand what you’re going through, and we will fight aggressively to protect your good name as your elder abuse attorney. We will be right beside you through every phase of the process, from the initial investigation to trial and even appeal if necessary.
We handle all types of elder abuse offenses including:
- Physical Abuse
- Emotional Abuse
- Financial Exploitation
Possible Elder Abuse Defenses
Different types of elder abuse crimes will of course require different defense strategies. However, there are some general arguments that an elder abuse attorney can use:
- False Accusations: Unfortunately, elders can sometimes become confused and make false allegations against a caregiver. If this is the case, we can find evidence to prove it.
- Accidental Harm: Sometimes a fall or other type of accidental injury can leave marks that may be mistaken for abuse. As an experienced elder abuse attorney, we know when to bring in expert witnesses to help demonstrate the difference.
- Insufficient Evidence: As with any type of criminal offense, the prosecution must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. We will scrutinize their evidence for flaws and search for new evidence that can help disprove the charges against you.
