As the leading provider of legal services for low income seniors in Los Angeles, Bet Tzedek is at the forefront of combating elder abuse in all its forms, including elder financial abuse and fraud. While likely under-reported, estimates of elder financial abuse and fraud range from $2.9 billion to $36.5 billion annually. The impact on the lives of seniors is nothing short of devastating. Bet Tzedek is seeking a passionate attorney to join the fight against elder fraud through a combination of direct representation, policy advocacy, and education and outreach efforts designed to combat structural inequalities, including predatory lending and other barriers to asset building in low income communities and communities of color. As part of the agency’s Justice for Seniors initiative, this attorney will conduct all phases of litigation related to real estate fraud, mortgage foreclosure, and other consumer law issues impacting elderly clients. In addition, the attorney will coordinate and conduct outreach presentations concerning elder fraud issues and engage in public policy advocacy on consumer protection issues, including legislative policymaking and regulatory advocacy. In partnership with other Bet Tzedek attorneys and advocates deploying other legal tools, such as Elder Abuse Restraining Orders, Advance Planning, and Conservatorship, this attorney will help preserve the safety, security, and dignity of our elderly community members.
