Our elder abuse attorneys put your family’s interests first
We trust nursing homes to care for our loved ones in the later years of their lives. That’s why nursing home abuse and neglect cases are so disturbing.

Why choose us?
Nursing home abuse and neglect cases can be extremely complicated. That’s because the nursing home often denies doing anything wrong. Instead, they often claim that your loved one became sick or ill because they’re older or had pre-existing health problems.
You know your loved one best. You know when something’s wrong with them. That’s why we want to help you hold the nursing home accountable for its actions. Whether it was hiring someone with a history of abusing patients or trying to cover up their reckless or negligent behavior, nursing homes must be held accountable for such behavior. We can even help you file criminal charges against the nursing home if necessary.
Tackling such tough cases can be challenging. That’s because nursing homes often refuse to release details about your loved one’s injury or illness. These companies also often have entire teams of attorneys defending their rights.
They don’t intimidate us. We know how to investigate abuse or neglect claims. And we’re prepared to take the nursing home to court if necessary. “We take these cases very seriously because they’re about more than money,” attorney Peter Villari said. “They’re about someone’s life.” Find out how we can help you.
