With the growing elder population, Californians are experiencing an epidemic of negligent care in residential care homes, skilled nursing facilities, and hospitals. Regardless of whether these facilities charge $3,500/month or $15,000/month, they are often understaffed and their employees lack the requisite training necessary to address their patients’ needs. The outcomes in these facilities are not by accident. They are typically a result of a calculated decision to place profits before the needs of residents and patients. Employees of these facilities often cannot provide the care they wish to provide due to forces beyond their control.
Families leave their loved ones in the hands of nursing home operators who treat them as a source of income rather than human beings. The safeguards which should be built into the “system” are simply proving to be ineffective. If you or your loved one is being abused or neglected, you do not have to accept your circumstances. Contact us to fight for them, regardless of their circumstances.

Susan did an amazing job representing our family in a complex and emotionally challenging legal matter. Susan was in it for the long haul, becoming both a trusted advisor and a voice of compassion throughout the process.
