Frederick was founded in the early 1700s and has served as a crossroads between major traveling points for years and years. In recent decades, it has turned itself into the second-largest city in Maryland, right behind Baltimore with a population of nearly 67,000 residents. With about 15% of the residents being senior citizens, there is a great need for assisted living and nursing homes to provide the proper care for the elderly community. Unfortunately, the more nursing homes there are out there, the bigger the chance that foul play could take place within some of these facilities. It’s always stressful time when these incidents happen, and that’s why Whitney, LLP offers free legal consultations for anyone who believes they have been or are a victim of elderly financial abuse. Here is what our clients have to say about us.


When it comes to who can commit these kinds of crimes, it falls on whoever has direct communication with the elderly person. This can turn out to be nursing staff, a company, even family members that seem to have gotten incredibly close to an elderly loved one. It may come as a shock that 90% of all elderly financial abuse cases are caused in a domestic setting by family members, but they’re usually the ones that have direct access to personal records, financial statements, and other assets that they can abuse. Becoming familiar with these warning signs of financial abuse can make a huge impact on how your elderly loved ones are treated:

  • Heavy interest in personal financial assets
  • Previous heavy gambling or financial issues
  • Disputes against future inheritance
  • Nursing homes and assisted living facilities charging irregular fees
  • Out of the blue new “best friends”
  • Strange activity in their bank account
  • Unexplained financial transactions
  • Nursing homes and assisted living facilities employees taking charge of financial affairs

In the age of technology, there are now thousands of different ways that predators can try to take control or drain an elderly person’s financial assets. Although, in 2010, the Elder Justice Act was enacted to try and tackle all the different forms of elder financial abuse without going on a case-by-case basis. As the Act states, elder financial abuse is “the fraudulent or otherwise illegal, unauthorized, or improper act… that used the resources of an elder for monetary or personal benefit, profit, or gain, or that results in depriving an elder the rightful access to, or use of, benefits, resources, belongings, or assets.” This Act helps protect thousands of elderly citizens from losing a majority of their financial assets, as well as possibly recovering the assets that were lost. In the unfortunate chance that the elderly person suffers from a mental illness, they are more prone to becoming a victim due to the illness possibly skewing their decision making.


In the unfortunate chance that you or a loved one have become the victim of elder financial abuse, either by a dishonest employee or family member, you may be eligible to claim proper compensation for your losses and the emotional distress that came with the issue. The Frederick elder financial abuse attorneys at Whitney, LLP offer free legal consultations to help you understand what your choices are when looking to file a claim. If you need help with your case, call Whitney, LLP today to receive a free legal consultation. Our number is (410) 583-8000. There are no fees or expenses until we recover compensation for you.
