Helping You Keep Everything Fair

Physical and mental deterioration are parts of the natural aging process. While some people might experience these effects sooner or more noticeably than others, it is just as natural for people who may have lost a step or two to start relying more heavily upon those they love and trust.

This natural reliance can be a wonderful experience for everyone involved. Unfortunately, it can also lead to a decidedly unnatural abuse of that trust for personal gain (aka stealing or cheating).

At Hodges Law Firm, LLC, in Cumming, Georgia, we understand how these abuses are perpetrated and have more than 30 years of experience with helping clients from throughout the Atlanta area and beyond put a stop to those wrongs while setting things right. If you feel that someone has taken advantage of an elderly loved one, don't wait to take action just because you don't have all the answers or aren't completely certain. That's what we're here for. Just contact us today and schedule a free consultation.

Misplaced Trust Is Just The Beginning

The most common situation in estate fraud litigation starts with a person in a position of trust such as a close friend, a child, a grandchild, a brother, an aunt or even a professional accountant, financial adviser or lawyer the person has worked with for a long time.

Over time or quickly in some cases, the trusted person isolates the aged family member from others. Later, after the loved one in question has passed, everyone else discovers that his or her will has been dramatically altered and that many (or sometimes all) of his or her assets were transferred, "given" or sold at ridiculously low prices to Mr. or Mrs. Trustworthy some time ago.

Exactly how Mr. or Mrs. Trustworthy accomplished all this doesn't matter at this point. Suffice it to say that the combination of trust, reliance and isolation from other family members and loved ones is incredibly conducive to manipulation.

What matters now is what you do next.
