LAS will begin hosting MCLE's throughout the year to compliment and lead up to our Annual Elder Abuse Conference on May 17th, 2016.

 Please join us on October 27th, 2015 at 12pm for our first installment with an MCLE presentation on Financial Elder Abuse by Niall P. McCarthy. 

Mr. McCarthy, a Principal at Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy, LLP, has handled many consumer fraud class actions.  He has acted as Co-Lead National Class Counsel in actions against some of the largest banks and credit card companies in the country, which returned hundreds of millions of dollars to consumers.  He is the author of "Home Equity Loss in California Through Predatory Lending," "Combating Predatory Lending in California," and has spoken in many forums on consumer fraud.

 The focus of this Financial Elder Abuse training will be:

  • Understanding California law and the victim’s rights
  • Identifying warning signs
  • Current trends in financial elder abuse
  • Lessons learned in prosecuting civil elder abuse cases

*Lunch will not be provided.  You are invited to bring your own lunch.
