Possible Defenses for a Charge of Elder Abuse
Often, elder abuse cases are not based on strong evidence. The charges could arise from a confused victim who has accused the wrong person or reported abuse that has not actually occurred. It is also possible that any injuries or damages that the victim suffered were accidental, not deliberate. If necessary, we will consult expert witnesses to show the difference between accidental and deliberate injuries.
Our fifteen years of experience and knowledge of the local court system has given us the insight necessary to accurately predict the likely outcome of your case under different defense strategies. For example, knowing that the prosecutor on your case is extremely busy, we may be able to convince them to drop the charges against you if their evidence is anything but airtight. We can also use our knowledge of local prosecutors to help you discern when to accept a plea deal and when to fight charges in court.
