Elder Financial Abuse and Financial Exploitation

Our parents and elderly relatives have become the targets of unscrupulous brokers, investment advisors and insurance agents and sadly, sometimes immediate family members or close relatives. Unfortunately, as we age our elders ability to understand these newer and complex investments diminishes every year. Their retirement savings are ripe for picking and an epidemic of fraud on our senior citizens is underway all across America. As a result many new state laws with harsh penalties have been enacted to protect our loved ones. The attorneys at The Law Offices of Robert Wayne Pearce, P.A. are knowledgeable of these laws and skilled in protecting our senior citizens from financial exploitation and abuse.

Representing clients throughout Florida and nationwide.

Over the years, our firm has been retained in an increasing number of cases that have involved financial abuse (mistreatment) of senior citizens. A recent study reveals why this trend is increasing. It establishes that knowledge about financial matters falls 2% each year after age 60, while at the same time confidence in being financially knowledgeable increases. The study involved a test that measured knowledge of investments, insurance, credit and money basics. Those in their 60s scored 59% correct while those in their 80s and older scored 30% correct. People over the age of 60 control half the wealth in America. They are generally not only unaware of their diminishing capacity, but are overconfident about their ability to make financial decisions. Not only will Americans over the age of 60 tend to make more financial mistakes, they are tempting targets for fraud promoters. Seniors are 12% of the population but make up 35% of all fraud victims, according to the National Council on Aging. Fortunately, there are many protections that the law provides to senior citizens who have been victimized

Client Reviews
Robert Pearce is part of that unusual breed of lawyers that are able to create empathy with clients and thoroughly adopt their cause. No half efforts here. He and his group of professionals are outstanding strategists that can execute with precise fervor and unyielding determination. Theirs is a huge wave of facts, research, precedents and preparation, that has impressed me in its thoroughness and creativity, and most importantly with the results. No stone goes unturned and no effort is ever spared. In my book, he and they are those of a very rare kind that one wants to keep for a very long time. Ramon F.
This law firm is the real deal. We were so lucky that they took our case as they have so much experience in securities and all the wrongdoing that happens in these investment companies where they mislead you and your money (as in our case) into schemes that are not what you think they are. Mr. Robert Pearce is one of the best lawyers around, a truly professional who will fight for you and will tell you as it is all the time. Astrid M.
Mr. Pearce is a great professional and attorney. He led me through every step of the process in a clear, direct and straightforward manner. I highly recommend him as a securities attorney. Rey S.
Just like the song from HAMILTON, it's so nice to have Bob Pearce on your side. He is the consumate plaintiff's lawyer: smart. dedicated, fully able to try a case but a great negotiator in a mediation. He did a wonderful job for us, fully supporting us through the process and more than holding his own against a large national law firm. Maurice Z.
No lawyer except Bob said I had a chance of winning. When Ubs lawyers laughingly offered me zero to settle the dispute, Bob became even more determined to prove everybody wrong. Bob was extremely prepared, and always a step ahead of the opposing attorneys throughout the arbitration. In the end, Bob and I had the last laugh when the arbitrators awarded me almost 6 million dollars. J. Blanco
