i think what
00:05
makes our firm different from other law
00:08
firms
00:08
is the breadth and depth of our
00:11
experience
00:12
with elder law we can do it all in in
00:15
the field of elder law
00:17
we have a certified trust and estates
00:20
specialist who can handle the
00:22
transactional side
00:24
of elder law and we have
00:27
substantial experience in litigation
00:30
which is our focus
00:32
in elder law the elder law litigation
00:34
we’re just as comfortable
00:36
handling elder abuse cases in civil
00:39
court
00:40
as we are in probate court and even in
00:43
the same case
00:44
we may be in both probate court and
00:47
civil court
00:48
and i found that most firms are
00:50
comfortable
00:51
in one or the other they either focus
00:54
most of their efforts in probate court
00:56
or
00:56
most of their efforts in civil but we
00:58
can do both
00:59
do both and have done for many years so
01:02
i think that gives us a distinct
01:03
advantage
01:09
when hiring an elder abuse attorney the
01:11
number one thing
01:13
a person should look for is to find
01:16
someone with experience
01:17
and a focus in elder abuse
01:21
litigation within the law it’s an era of
01:23
specialization
01:24
the the days of the generalist
01:27
lawyer who does a little bit of this a
01:29
little bit of that i think
01:31
is gone i’ve heard it referred to as a
01:33
door lawyer whatever knocks on their
01:35
door they handle that’s definitely not
01:36
us
01:37
our focus is the elder abuse litigation
01:40
and why it’s important to go with a
01:41
specialist
01:42
in this area is that the law is
01:45
rapidly changing in california our elder
01:48
abuse act
01:49
was enacted 1992 which is pretty young
01:53
for a law and the law changes on an
01:55
annual basis
01:57
and so an attorney to be effective has
01:59
got to keep
02:00
up with the changes in the law the
02:02
changes
02:03
in the court’s approach and
02:06
interpretation of that law
02:07
and we spend every day of our working
02:10
life
02:11
focused on these elder abuse cases and
02:13
that gives us a distinct advantage
02:15
which we pass along to our clients
