When choosing an elder abuse attorney to represent someone you love, one thing matters above all others – jury verdicts. When it comes to jury verdicts, Dudensing Law dominates.

No other elder abuse attorney currently practicing in the United States has more than one eight-figure elder abuse verdict. Ed Dudensing has three.

The greatest fear of elder care defendants and their insurance companies is to suffer a large, public jury verdict. This is why verdicts matter.

Most elder abuse cases never go to trial, but even so, your lawyer’s history of verdicts is still important.

Verdicts establish our lawyer’s reputation and demonstrate your team’s ability to win, which translates into your ability to get justice for the person you love.

Defendants and their insurance companies are sophisticated and they know “who is who” amongst elder abuse attorneys.

With Ed Dudensing on your case, opposing counsel will know you are capable of winning in court, and so will negotiate more favorably.

Fighting nursing home abuse

Elder abuse in nursing homes is simply unacceptable. California’s nursing homes are bound by law to uphold certain minimum living standards and prevent abuse, neglect, isolation, abandonment, and financial exploitation. Those who violate elder abuse laws can face criminal proceedings resulting in prison time and fines, or be held to account in civil court. 

Our nursing home abuse lawyers are committed to holding perpetrators of nursing home abuse to account. By taking on the large chains that own many of California’s elder care facilities, Dudensing Law can help disincentivize the pursuit of profit-before-care business practices, improve the living standards of thousands of seniors, and punish those who commit and enable abuse.
