Why is it they have attorneys for everything except elder abuse/care. I've called around and couldn't find anyone in the area. It's as if the elder people are not important and they are abused all the time without anyone to turn to.
Your frustration is misplaced. I know several lawyers who handle elder abuse cases, including myself. Not every case has potential, so you may have hard time finding a lawyer. Having said that, don't give up, keep contacting lawyers.
Avvo does not allow lawyers to solicit clients, so it is up to you to initiate contact with the lawyers directly.See question

My father is a construction worker and he damaged his back, he lives in the Monterey county in California and has lived here for a decade in a half. I am very concerned for him and I want him to get medical insurance and I want to know if he can.
Even though he is undocumented, he still has some rights. He should talk to a worker's compensation lawyer in his area as well as an immigration lawyer.See question
I got medical records today and found out surgeon's result notes was removed which I saw it did exist in the medical records I received a week ago. That result notes is evidence for either his fraud practice or surgical error.
Occasionally when you try to get your records you receive incomplete records. It doesn't mean that someone tried to change your recurred records. However, there have been other times when the records were actually changed or forged. These are serious violations.
Your best bet is to call a lawyer and have the lawyer investigate it. On this site we're prohibited from soliciting clients. So it is up to you to make the direct contact with a lawyer.
Good luck.See question

You could also sue in Federal court. Have you filed lawsuit yet? If not, you can still do it, but the statute of limitations is about to run out.
