Description: The Elder Abuse Committee’s mission is to raise awareness within the New York State legal community about issues of exploitation and mistreatment of older adults. Elder abuse is a widespread, growing problem and attorneys are effectively positioned to serve as watchdogs in identifying, addressing and remedying incidents of elder abuse within their pool of clients and potential clients. Through substantive educational programming, resource creation and distribution, and community building, the committee’s goal is to increase legal practitioners’ proactive and informed responses to elder abuse.
