Managing Partner Kerry Peck was interviewed on Chicago Tonight with Phil Ponce. The interview discusses financial abuse and specifically, caregiver abuse:
“The most common financial abuse cases that we see are caregiver abuse cases. The typical scenario is an older adult is left one-on-one with a 24/7 caregiver. You see a lot of women taking advantage of elderly men in what develops into being an intimate relationship.”
