Elder Abuse

Santa Barbara Elder Abuse Attorneys

The attorneys of Michael P. Ring & Associates are proud to lend their knowledge and courtroom experience to matters of elder abuse. Specifically, we bring lawsuits against individuals and organizations who take advantage of seniors and their finances.

The California Elder Abuse and Dependent Adult Civil Protection Act of 1991 (EDACPA) protects people over 70 from fraud and is the foundation for much of our elder abuse work. Our work in this area is broad, but many cases have involved:

  • Securities law: As we mentioned in our Securities law page, we represent seniors who believe that their losses are due to securities fraud or other mistreatment of their investments.


  • Financial disputes with nursing homes: We focus specifically on assisting seniors whose nursing homes or other long-term care facilities have taken advantage of them and robbed them of their money. Our attorneys deal with financial damages, and not physical damages, such as matters of neglect or medical malpractice. But we will gladly direct clients to lawyers who do work in that area.


  • Litigation within estate planning: Our lawyers help people throughout California with will contests and other disputes that arise in estate planning matters. Since we are principally trial lawyers, we do not get involved in setting up estates, but instead are called once a dispute arises.

Our lawyers and staff are absolutely committed to the welfare of our clients. We get to know our clients and their families well, consulting with them carefully and keeping them consistently updated in any and all developments in their case.
