If you are seeking an elder abuse attorney to represent you, an important consideration is the attorney’s history with elder abuse cases. Elder law is an extensive practice area. Some attorneys handle many different types of law and claim to, but do not specialize in elder abuse. At Pintas & Mullins Law Firm, we dedicate our practice to serving the victims of elder abuse.

When searching for an elder abuse lawyer, you should know what your legal needs are. This will help you to narrow your search to find the best attorney for elder abuse. For example, if your claim involves physical abuse, you may not want to hire an attorney or law firm whose primary focus is handling elder financial exploitation claims or some other unrelated elder law issue.
Finding the Best Attorney for Elder Abuse
There are other factors to consider when finding an elder abuse lawyer that is right for you. When consulting with a prospective elder abuse attorney, you will want to ask about their:
- Familiarity with applicable state elder abuse laws.

- Attorney’s fees.
- Disciplinary history.

It is important to remember that you will be working with the attorney you hire regularly over a long period of time. So, it is important to ensure that you can work with this attorney effectively.
Your attorney should be able to handle your case with compassion, discretion, and competence. Elder abuse is a sensitive and complex issue. Therefore, establishing a good rapport and working relationship with an attorney is essential to an effective claim.
