Our Aging Population Is Too Often Exploited, and We Want to Do Something About It
By 2030, the number of Americans over age 65 is expected to increase to 71.5 million. Americans are living longer, and they are surviving illnesses and diseases that would have been fatal a generation ago. Unfortunately, this has also created new ways for our loved ones to be endangered.
As our loved ones age, they become increasingly vulnerable to financial fraud, abuse, and coercion, often by caregivers and the family members closest to them.
At Fair Share Lawyers, we have unfortunately witnessed a dramatic increase in instances of abuse and undue influence directed at some of the weakest members of our society.
Unscrupulous individuals opportunistically prey upon the vulnerabilities of the elderly, whom often are too frail or afraid to resist. We determined that we were going to take a stand on behalf of those who are unable to defend themselves.
Holding Those Who Exploit Seniors Accountable
Our probate and estate dispute lawyers want to hold those who would take advantage of the elderly accountable for their actions. It’s our goal to protect the legacies of families from those who would benefit from wrongdoing.
Our law firm understands estate disputes can threaten even the strongest family bonds. When you come to us with a will contest, trust dispute, or suspicion of elder financial abuse, we’ll work hard to resolve or settle your case with respect, compassion, and care.
We try our best to settle matters without resorting to litigation and always endeavor to maintain family relationships throughout the probate process. But we won’t hesitate to take your case to court if you decide it’s necessary. Through careful case preparation and planning, we’ll work hard to protect the integrity of your loved one’s final wishes.
Helping Our Clients Fight for Their Fair Share
If you believe you’ve been wrongfully cut from a family member’s will or trust, or you suspect your loved one was the victim of fraud or coercion, contact Fair Share Lawyers today. Our estate dispute lawyers want to help fulfill your loved one’s final wishes as he or she would have intended–so you can get the inheritance you deserve.
Our Core Values
At Fair Share Lawyers, we have confidence in what we do. It’s our mission to right the wrongs suffered by grieving family members and, ultimately, preserve what it means to be a family, and we believe strongly in our cause.
Access to Opportunity
Too often in our legal system, people are denied access to the opportunity for fairness. Many of our clients aren’t in a position to afford an expensive law firm after losing their loved one. That’s why, whenever possible, we work on a contingency fee basis, which means we don’t get paid unless we succeed for our clients.
Understanding what our clients are going through is central to everything we do. We want every one of our team members to be able to show compassion for our clients. That means understanding their challenges and knowing that they’ve come to us during what’s likely one of the most difficult times of their lives.
Passion for Growth
Fair Share Lawyers wants to help as many people as possible, which means we also want to grow our firm to accommodate more clients. As the U.S. population ages and a greater proportion of our population is over the age of 65, ensuring their wishes are carried out and their rights upheld is more important than ever. But growth isn’t just essential for our firm, it’s also vital for our team members, both professionally and personally.
What Makes Fair Share Lawyers Different
There aren’t many law firms that do what we do. We do our best to take on cases on a contingency fee basis, which is not something many other probate and estate litigation firms can offer. That sends a message to our potential clients: we’re in this together.
We also value transparency with anyone who deals with our firm. If you come to us for a free consultation, we’ll always tell you upfront if we’re able to accept your case. When we can’t take a case, we communicate why and we help that person understand their situation and, in some cases, offer them resources that empower them to take other paths to get their fair share.
