Elder financial abuse is a growing concern, and understanding your legal rights is the first step toward safeguarding your or your loved one's financial future.

Elder Abuse in the Financial Sector

Elder abuse, especially financial exploitation by stockbrokers or brokerage firms, is an issue that can have devastating effects on seniors' financial security and well-being. Under California law, specifically Welfare & Institutions Code § 15610.07, elder abuse encompasses various forms of mistreatment, including financial abuse, which occurs when a person or entity takes, secretes, appropriates, or retains real or personal property of an elder for a wrongful use or with intent to defraud.

Your Legal Protections and Remedies

California's robust legal framework provides strong protections for elder individuals against financial exploitation. Notably, Welfare & Institutions Code § 15610.07 not only enables victims of elder abuse to pursue legal action against perpetrators but also offers the possibility of recovering attorney fees and treble damages. This means that if your case is successful, you could potentially recover three times the amount of your actual financial losses, in addition to having your legal fees covered. These provisions are designed to deter wrongful conduct by stockbrokers and brokerage firms and to provide significant compensation to victims.

The Role of FINRA Securities Arbitrations

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) offers a forum for resolving disputes between investors and brokerage firms or stockbrokers through arbitration. This process is often faster and less formal than traditional court proceedings, making it a preferred choice for many investors, especially the elderly who may seek a more expedient resolution to their grievances.
