South Florida and Nationwide Elder Fraud Attorney
Financial exploitation of the elderly is a rampant problem that hits many American families close to home. This happens most frequently in states with higher retirement populations such as Florida, California and Arizona. In fact, many states such as Florida have elder abuse statutes providing for money damages or penalties for exploitation of the elderly. If this has happened to someone in your family — an elderly parent or grandparent, for example — then you are concerned about protecting your loved one’s rights and helping to recover his or her financial losses.
If your elderly family member has lost money due to the negligence, fraud or abusive actions of his or her broker or financial advisor, you need to speak with an experienced South Florida financial elder fraud attorney. Former Wall Street Lawyer Melanie S. Cherdack has handled many cases on behalf of retirees who have lost money in their pensions, IRA funds, SEP plans or their 401k investments, stock plans, and other retirement vehicles. She leads a team of securities fraud attorneys who represent investors across the United States, Latin America, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.
Unscrupulous individuals often prey on retirees, viewing our older generation as trusting, gullible and uninformed. The elderly are particularly vulnerable as they often have accumulated savings to invest and may not understand the risks or costs of what they are being sold. They are therefore targeted by unscrupulous brokers or investment advisors. While many of today’s retirees can seek help from an attorney on their own, your parent or grandparent may need your help to recover on a risky or fraudulent investment.
