Elder Abuse

The term “elder abuse” refers to intentional or negligent acts by a caregiver or other person that cause harm to a vulnerable adult.  Elder abuse can be physical, financial or involve caregiver neglect.  Bragg, Mainzer & Firpo, LLP believes that in addition to criminal penalties, the perpetrators of elder abuse should be held financially liable for their actions.  To that end, Bragg, Mainzer & Firpo, LLP represents the victims of elder abuse in civil actions to recover damages.

With over fifty years of combined experience in the practice of law, the lawyers of Bragg, Mainzer & Firpo, LLP have extensive experience representing people injured by the negligent or intentional acts of others.  While we understand monetary compensation can never erase the harm done by elder abuse, we strive to ensure that justice is done to the fullest extent the law allows.

What Others Say

I have had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Bragg as a colleague, adversary, and friend for over thirty years. Quite simply, he is among the most gifted and accomplished attorneys I have ever known. His knowledge, advocacy, and formidable trial skills make him an ideal lawyer, willing and able to achieve the absolute best results for his clients.

In the community, Bill enjoys an excellent reputation for both legal ability and integrity. My own experience confirm that such reputation is well-earned. Having observed him—for many years—both in and out of court, I could attest to numerous examples of his creative (and successful) approaches to complex legal issues. At the same time, his personal honesty and devotion, above all, to his clients’ interest has constantly been of the highest order.

To the potential client I would say this: Bill Bragg is the consummate advocate who will always vigorously pursue your claim, with great skill and devotion. You will be in good hands.
