Elder Abuse Questionare

PLEASE NOTE:
This questionnaire is meant solely for the use of the consulting attorney for purposes of analyzing and evaluating the prospective client's case. The contents of this document are therefore protected by the attorney-client privilege and the attorney work product doctrine. It is very important that you be completely truthful, accurate and complete in answering the following questions. The defendant in this case will likely obtain all relevant records about you. Therefore, it is crucial that we are aware of all information, including information you may believe will damage your case, in order to best represent you. If we decline to take your case, it does not mean you do not have a case. Therefore, if we decline your case you should contact another attorney. Most of our clients are employees or injured persons. If you are an employer, or you are concerned you might be sued by someone else, do not complete a questionnaire. Instead, you must first contact our office by telephone.
