If your loved one has been the victim of elder abuse, I can help you. I'm San Diego elder abuse lawyer Joel R. Bryant, and I specialize in helping victims over age 65 - and their families - in cases throughout California where the elder:

Experienced Attorney for Elder Abuse

I have sixteen years of legal experience, with a track record of successes in nursing home injury compensation, recovering real estate and investments for elders, and correcting wills and trusts that were wrong due to fraud, pressure, or improper influence. My law degree is from the University of San Diego and I hold an B.S. in Finance, summa cum laude, from the Arizona State University. I guarantee the high quality of my work and my dedication to fighting hard and seeking the best possible outcome, given the applicable law and facts, for every case I take.

Convenience, Contingency Fees, Fast Help

I have convenient, freeway-accessible offices in both San Diego and Riverside and handle cases throughout all of Southern California, including the counties of Imperial, Orange, Los Angeles, Ventura, and San Bernardino, as well as San Diego and Riverside. I offer evening and weekend appointments for clients who need them. I'll begin investigating your loved one's case as soon as I'm hired, and will provide you with fast, knowledgeable legal help to keep a bad situation from getting worse and to stop the abuser.

There is no charge for your initial telephone consultation. Injury cases are accepted on contingency, meaning my fees will be paid only from money or assets I recover by settlement or in court; otherwise, there is no fee. Financial abuse and will / trust fraud cases are handled either on contingency or hourly, depending on the situation. You will receive a complete explanation of my services, fees, and related costs (such as court filing fees) in a written agreement for you to review and sign before you hire me.
