  1. Nursing home abuse and neglect
    50%
    Nursing home abuse refers to any acts of abuse, neglect, or mistreatment committed by a nursing home staff member against a resident or patient. Nursing home abuse can refer to physical abuse, sexual abuse, financial abuse, psychological abuse, emotional abuse, or neglect.

    25%
    At Moran Law, we are dedicated to providing excellent legal counsel to abuse happening to elderly living in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and residential care.

  3. Slip and fall accident
    10%
    Falls causing injuries in elderly account for a major sign of nursing home neglect, and may result in broken bones, fractures, tear, wounds and even permanent disability in elderly. Other more severe effects may be functional decline, reduced independence, and an overall reduced quality of life for an elderly person. Patients may also experience feelings of helplessness, depression, anxiety, and social isolation.

    24 years, 195 cases

  4. Wrongful death
    10%
    Nursing home abuse & neglect can easily result in wrongful death. Wrongful death refers to situations in which acts of abuse, neglect, or mistreatment result in the accidental death of another. When the staff at a nursing home abuses or neglects an elderly resident, and as a result kills that resident, both the nursing home and the caretaker(s) responsible for the victim’s death will be held liable under California wrongful death laws.

    24 years, 127 cases

  5. Personal injury
    5%
    Like many other forms of abuse, elder abuse is also a complex problem, and it’s easier for people to have misconceptions about it. Especially when the case of abuse involves home health care, people tend to have doubts even if they suspect of any wrongdoing. At Moran Law, we are dedicated to providing effective legal counsel to elderly and their family members against abuse, mistreatment and neglect.

    24 years, 310 cases

Moran Elder Law Delivers!
Mike Moran and Lisa Trinh-Flint of Moran Elder Law are quite simply the BEST. I found their expertise in elder abuse and nursing home litigation to be unparalleled. Mike has extensive experience and a passion to truly help the most vulnerable members of our society. His devotion to seeking justice, and vast knowledge of the law, creates a formidable force to any opponent. Lisa also possesses an equal passion to holding accountable those that are responsible for injuring the defenseless. She has a well-informed and discerning knowledge of the law and procedure. Lisa worked tirelessly on my behalf, and her attention to detail is second to none. Together, their “styles” may be somewhat different, but they complement each other. That difference works, and makes them a truly great team. My case was handled, from beginning to end, with the utmost care and professionalism. Lisa always maintained contact and provided me with regular updates as to the status of my case, which I greatly appreciated. I am completely satisfied with their performance, and will be forever grateful to them for obtaining justice for my beloved mother. I wholeheartedly recommend Moran Elder Law to anyone seeking justice in this area of the law. Moran Elder Law may be considered a small, “boutique” firm, but their presence in the practice of law is mighty.

A great team to have your back
I was looking for a lawyer to represent me in a law suit and Moran Law was recommended to me by the LA Bar Association. From our initial phone conversation to the final resolve of the case, Mike Moran and his op notch team were behind me 100 percent and led me through every phase of the process. They were there to answer phone calls and e-mails and always responded promptly. They realistically assessed my case and informed me of all of the pros and cons associated with it. They made me feel comfortable and confident, since I had never been involved in anything like this before. They fought for me through a lengthy arbitration process until we were happy with the final settlement offer (Avoiding a court trial). I would not want to go through anything like this again, but I I had to, I would want Mike Moran and his team behind me. They get my endorsement, 100 percent!

Best in Class
I can't imagine a better attorney specializing in elder law and nursing home abuse and neglect. My case proves it. Not simply because Mike was dedicated, strategic and ultimately successful in the year-long litigation, mediation and resolution. It's the respect, honesty, thoughtfulness, and care that Mike and his team gave our case. Expertise in your field and your record of wins v. losses aren't enough. It's client relations and satisfaction. I can say without reservation -- on behalf of my sister, myself and our late mother, that Moran Law is Best in Class.

Michael Moran/ Elder Abuse Specialist Lawyer
Moran Law is a boutique law firm, their entire practice is Elder abuse, neglect, death; and specifically nursing homes and assisted living homes. Mr. Moran is a Specialist in Elder Law care. He has practiced for over 30 years. He is an experienced litigator. He is knowledgeable about the specific laws that are applicable to Elder abuse/neglect cases. Mr. Michael Moran, Mr. Damon Schwartz, and staff are a well organized team of professionals that work cohesively to accomplish the best possible solution to your lawsuit. We lost our Mother due to the negligence of an assisted care facility. We hired Moran Law because we had read an article, stating that he had been involved in the revocation of a license of an owner of an assisted care facility, where negligence and wrongful death had occurred at that facility. We hired Moran law to represent us in a negligence and wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of our Mother. Mr. Moran has an excellent reputation in the Elder Care Legal community. Due to Mr. Moran's reputation, the opposing insurance attorneys know which attorneys negotiate to settle and which are prepared to go to trial. In our case, Mr. Moran was prepared to go to trial. Unfortunately, our Mother passed away. Fortunately, we hired the Best Elder Abuse Law Firm in California, Moran Law. Mr. Moran was able to resolve our lawsuit, without going to trial, and within a reasonable amount of time, from start to finish. If you are in need of a Specialist Attorney who specializes in Elder Abuse cases, we highly recommend Moran Law. They are not only experienced, and elder abuse legally knowledgeable; but they are also a kind and caring law firm.

Elder Law Case
From my very first phone call to your office and then our initial interview at your law office to discuss the merits of our case, we felt complete confidence in your knowledge of the specific area of Elder Abuse Laws and in your advice to our family. I always felt that the primary concern with regard to the case was for our mother's welfare. Secondly our desires for the improvement of elder care laws and procedures for providing such care was also evident. His involvement in CANHR ( California Nursing Home Reform Association ) is a strong indication of his dedication to this issue. Every time I had a conversation with Mr. Moran he asked how our mother was doing. This personal touch just showed me how sincere he was and how "right" it was to pursue this law suit. Our elder community is well served by genuine and sincere advocates such as Michael Moran.

"I have known Mike for many years. His stellar reputation is well deserved. I've referred Elder Abuse cases to Mike, and each time he provided fantastic representation to the client I referred and he obtained the results that make him one of the top Elder Abuse litigators in the State. He doesn't advertise his verdicts, but they are among the largest in the State, and his willingness to take a case to trial earns him the respect of the defense bar and the admiration of the plaintiff's bar. I recommend Mike and his firm without reservation."
