Hello, I'm Mike Hackard. I'm the chair of Hackard Law, a law firm focusing on estate, trust and elder financial abuse litigation in California's major urban areas. I'm the author of The Wolf at The Door: Undue Influence and Elder Financial Abuse. The book will come out in early autumn. This is Episode 3 where I briefly provide, without elaboration, the five most common ways elder financial abuse happens.
- #1: Caregiver abuse;
- #2: Financial exploitation;
- #3: Misuse of powers of attorney;
- #4: Isolation and freeze-outs;
- #5: Unwarranted property transfers;
If you would like a free digital copy of the book when it comes out email us at [email protected]. I'm happy to share this book on this very important topic.
