Financial Abuse Litigation is a difficult field. Attorney Wessels and Attorney Liebau have the experience you need in a case like this.

Financial abuse cases

Strong Advocacy in Difficult Situations

Carol has been advocating for victims of elder abuse since over 20 years ago when, as director of SeniorLAW at Legal Action of Wisconsin,  she applied for and received the first statewide grant to provide legal services to victims of elder abuse.

We advise and represent people who have been the victims of financial exploitation and elder abuse. Often, this abuse is by someone in a position of trust such as a power of attorney agent or a family member. Where an agent steals money, this is called "fiduciary abuse." According to the National Adult Protective Service Association, over 90% of financial abuse happens at the hands of family or other close people. Therefore, these can be very stressful  cases.

We have successfully litigated cases that resulted in the return of money and property to the victim or their estate. We have succeeded in getting homes returned, getting monetary judgments, and getting funds returned without litigation. We can help you understand your options if you or a loved one has been victimized.
