Protecting the health and welfare of older adults

Seniors who have worked hard all of their lives deserve a comfortable retirement. Unfortunately, the natural process of aging makes seniors vulnerable to deception, fraud and neglect by those whom they trust to minister to their needs. Even when there is no deliberate mistreatment, seniors may find it difficult to access essential services because of cumbersome regulations, confusing paperwork and other bureaucratic barriers. Mark H. Weiss, P.C. advocates for older adults who need legal guidance and decisive action taken to ensure their health and welfare.

Protections from scams that target the individual

Older adults are viewed as easy pickings for con men and scam artists. Mark H. Weiss, P.C. assists seniors with sound estate planning and financial advice to protect their assets from predators. By developing a close working relationship with our senior clients, we establish a bond of trust. If a senior client is approached with an offer that’s too good to be true, we hope they will consult us so that we can investigate it thoroughly to prevent any fraud or deception. In cases where a senior has already been targeted, we attempt to recover funds lost and implement safeguards to avoid any repetition.
