Serving Clients In Dayton, Cincinnati And Throughout Central And Southern Ohio
Senior citizens know how difficult it is to admit they are being cheated. When a trusted loved one is suspected of stealing from their bank account or funneling away personal assets, it can even be harder to face.
As baby boomers grow older, personal wealth is being accumulated in the hands of an aging population. With advanced age comes memory loss and diminishing good judgment due to dementia, Alzheimer's and other ailments — making them easier targets for fraud and theft by their adult children or grandchildren they trust with powers of attorney and joint bank accounts. Too often, family members try to justify the theft by providing small personal services or running errands.
At Craig T. Matthews & Associates, LPA, in Dayton, Ohio, we understand that the elderly are rarely in a position to look out for themselves when it comes to financial protection. Our founding attorney, Craig Matthews, learned firsthand how painful it is to watch an elderly parent with Alzheimer's suffer abuse, feeling helpless as a trusted family member took advantage of having access to bank accounts and assets. Today, our firm uses that experience as the energy driving our commitment to protecting those who can't protect themselves.
From offices in Dayton, our lawyers litigate on behalf of the elderly and vulnerable adults in communities throughout western, central and southern Ohio, including Cincinnati. Call us or contact us by email to arrange an initial consultation with one of our experienced Dayton financial elder abuse lawyers today.
