    Guardian Legal Services, LLC - Minnesota Nursing Home Neglect - Kenneth L. LaBore, handle nursing home abuse and neglect cases. Unlike most personal injury cases involving accidents, most nursing home abuse and prevent cases are preventable. Vulnerable and elderly nursing home and assisting living residents often suffer abuse and/or neglect due to an inadequate number of qualified and trained staff or due to faulty medical equipment or procedures. I know how to hold nursing homes accountable.

    30 years, 400 cases

KEN LABORE IS DEDICATED TO HOLDING NURSING HOMES ACCOUNTABLE FOR ABUSE, NEGLECT, AND WRONGFUL DEATH.

 

Get answers! Get accountability! I work hard to investigate how and why serious issues of neglect and abuse occur and then hold the facilities and care giver accountable finanically also with a focus on new policies and procedures, training and equipment to reduce the chances of similiar injuries to other vulnerable adults.

 

In addition to being an attorney I work to be an advocate for the rights of vulnerable adults and seniors in our community.  I frequently speak at senior centers, legal seminars, advocacy groups, community events and other locations offering advice on issues important to seniors and caregivers.

Outstanding Attorney in field of Minnesota Nursing Home Neglect
Ken LaBore is an excellent attorney, who is outstanding in his field. The combination of his integrity, authentic concern, ability to listen and sheer focus are some of the reasons I chose to be his client and would do so again. He is a careful listener and provides thoughtful and practical advice. He has a clear understanding and command of the law. Ken is an effective advocate for his clients, whether in settlement or trial. He also has high professional integrity and commitment to the practice of law and to his client. Ken focuses on elder abuse cases against Minnesota nursing homes. He is incredibly intelligent, dedicated and experienced in his field. He is truly a compassionate advocate and a wonderful example of how lawyers can help get justice for those wrongfully injured. I strongly recommend Ken LaBore for legal services relating to nursing home abuse and neglect. As a senior paralegal and former client, I personally know that Ken LaBore is hard working, dedicated, and empathetic. His knowledge and advice are always delivered with kindness and compassion. I do not hesitate to rate him with 5 stars. He is a very honest attorney, always with great moral standards.

Thorough, committed and easy to work with
Ken was our attorney following a head-on car accident. He went above and beyond. No issue was too big or small for him to tackle. We could tell right away that he had our back and would fight for us. He brought a ton of expertise but also listened to our perspectives, which was really important to us. He explained all of the complexities of a legal case to us and made sure we understood what was happening and what our options were. We are extremely grateful that Ken represented us.

Compassionate advocate for the elderly
Ken worked diligently with understanding and compassion with our grieving family after the wrongful death of our Mother. His heart is in the right place and he always listened to our concerns as he aggressively attacked the nursing home whose negligence took the life of our Mother. Because of his proactive work he forced the nursing home to make changes to protect other elderly residents, and for that we feel our Mother did not die in vain. He is not your typical attorney and we highly recommend him.

Ken is an attorney that fights for his client’s best interest. I had to engage his services twice and both outcomes were favorable. The more time I spent communicating with Ken my respect for him and his other law partner grew. I would recommend anyone that needs help in the area of nursing home neglect to contact Ken for his advice.

What an amazing person to work with!
Kenneth was an amazing attorney to work with. He kept me informed every step of the way and always made me feel like I was in control of my case. He was very efficient and knowledgeable about my case and similar cases in comparison. Kenneth made me feel like he cared about me, not just representing me as an attorney. He came highly recommended and I stand by that recommendation as well, if I'm ever in need of legal representation or know someone who is, there's no question who will be the first I call on!

Mr. LaBore is an excellent attorney. He was prompt in answering our questions and was very knowledgeable. He is a strong advocate for his clients and we were extremely satisfied with the outcome of our school case. I would highly recommend him.

Are you in good hand?
Ken changed my perception about lawyer. He is down to the earth and very approachable. You heard so many sales terms about "You are in good hand!" from insurance ads or from some TV ads about some law firm. After I met Ken, I then understood the actual meaning about "You are in good hand!" He explained the situation from the victim point of view. I will not hesitate to hire him and to recommend Ken to my friend in the future. He is always there for you by phone or by email through the whole case processing period.
