Really had our backs.
When my sisters informed me that our grandfather’s caretakers had changed his will to their benefit two years before he passed at 103 and that they wanted to hire an attorney to fight it, I was on board. We hired Evans Law Firm. Due to my work schedule, I was rarely able to attend the many phone calls but I was on all the email correspondence. Ms. Evans and her team were very thorough and dedicated to getting the truth. Due to Evans Law Firm’s tenacity, we were able to secure a settlement completely in our favor. I would without a doubt hire Evans Law Firm for Elder Financial Fraud and Abuse cases.

Financial Elder Abuse
My siblings and I hired Evans Law Firm after we discovered our grandfather’s caretakers had our 101-year-old grandfather change his trust. Evans Law Firm immediately took our Elder Financial Fraud and Abuse case. Ms. Evans has a no-nonsense way of getting to the point, but she does so because she can so clearly see the injustice and it infuriates her. She will then use that as motivation to dig out the truth. And did she! She was a forced to be reckoned with during the depositions and the amount of subpoenaed info she and her team combed through was incredible. Ms. Evans was able to secure a very uncommon FULL settlement in our favor. Without a doubt, I highly recommend Ms. Evans and Evans Law Firm.

Excellent Elder Law Firm
While one never really wants to need the services of an attorney, it’s a relief to find the one you know will go to bat for you. When my siblings and I were faced with elder financial fraud and abuse by our grandfather’s caregiver after he had passed, we were angry, hurt, and most of all, lost as to what to do next. A quick google search gave us a list of elder abuse attorneys, and the Evans Law Firm stood head and shoulders above the rest. We received a phone call within the hour of submitting the online free evaluation form, and thus began our litigation process. After nearly a year of in-depth investigating and depositions, the truth prevailed and a settlement strongly in our favor was reached. So strong that Ingrid stated that petitioners (us) rarely, if ever, get everything in the settlement they were requesting (which we did). It was only due to Ingrid and her team’s thoroughness and experience in these types of cases that the truth was overwhelmingly in our favor. We appreciated the care, concern, and tenacity of Ingrid and Evans Law Firm even if the process was one of the most stressful and emotionally taxing any of us have ever faced.

Excellent Professional Law Assistance
Evans Law Firm provided excellent legal assistance in an elder abuse lawsuit and probate case for me. The lawsuit was complicated and went on for a long time due to court backlogs that were further complicated when COVID-19 court closures occurred. Throughout the entire duration Evans Law Firm worked continuously using professional diligence and determination needed. Ingrid Evans provided steadfast leadership and guidance throughout. I am very thankful I had Evans Law Firm working on my case and assisting in probate.

Ingrid Evans is one of those lawyers that you always hope really exists somewhere, but you rarely find in real life.
Ingrid Evans was a bright light during one of the darkest periods of my life. Unlike other attorneys I had talked to, Ingrid wasn't taking our case with monetary figures in mind. Ingrid is one of those rare attorneys who still has a keen sense of justice, and a sense of what is and is not acceptable in a decent society. She didn't even give me a monetary figure of what our elder abuse/wrongful death lawsuit might be worth. She took the case because she knew that what was done to my mom was an outrage. Watching Ingrid work is like watching a master artist or skillful warrior at work. I was constantly amazed at how skillfully she not only refuted the opposing lawyers' arguments, but went on the offense getting them on every point of negligence that the people they were defending had committed. I'm an artist and musician, and I've always admired watching someone who is really masterful at what they do. Ingrid is exactly that in her profession: a master at work in the legal profession. That combined with an empathetic and compassionate heart, makes her a rare person in this day and age. She's one in a million. She and her team are all very personable as well as professional at what they do. Besides everything I've mentioned thus far, Ingrid went WAY above and beyond what she was hired to do. She helped me with multiple issues that came up that were not part of our contract. And not just a little bit, but she followed up everything she helped me with all the way, far beyond what any other attorney would have done. Ingrid is a true humanitarian. She's one of those "hero lawyers" that you see in movies or TV shows that you always hope really exists somewhere, but you rarely find in real life. I don't know how much time I have left on the earth, but Ingrid Evans is one of those people that will always be a hero in my life's story. Most sincerely, Ian B

Ingrid Evans!
Ingrid Evans is a brilliant attorney and a person of great integrity. Her extraordinary legal expertise, exceptional trial skills, and commitment to justice is only matched by her kindness, empathy, and passion to protect the vulnerable who have no voice. Ingrid was a key speaker at a Financial Elder Abuse Conference I attended. Every word of her talk was inspiring and exactly what I needed to hear to realize our story wasn’t uncommon. I shared our story of the nasty legal battle of many years against corporate greed and predatory lending. The lender/salesperson knew mom and dad were sick and dying. But that didn’t stop him from isolating them from family making it easy to prey on them. I never suspected that my mom and dad would be the target of a greedy lender and slick salesman who would intentionally deprive them of their home and the comfortable retirement they worked for all their lives. But that was exactly what happened to my trusting parents. Dad was in the last month of his life with terminal cancer and mom had Alzheimer’s Disease and could only talk about her dogs she loved so much. Without hesitation Ingrid took our case and simply said “It is the right thing to do”. From that moment she sprung into action. She motivated us when we felt helpless and scared. Her organization of our case brought a sense of calm to our family that served us throughout our legal battles and over the years since. She helped us voice mom and dad’s story to prevent similar experiences from happening to thousands of other seniors. We are forever grateful to Ingrid. If you even suspect your elderly parents are victims of financial elder abuse, don’t wait until there is a crisis. Call Ingrid Evans about preventing, detecting, and remedying elder financial abuse of your loved ones.

Great Experience
Ingrid did a fantastic job throughout our class action case. She and her staff helped me prepare, explained what was going on at each stage, and impressed me with her professionalism. I would highly recommend Evans Law Firm.

GREAT WORK!
From the very first moment I contacted this firm, they have been very responsive and attentive to my needs and my desired outcome. Ingrid was always transparent, timely, and informative. My case lasted over a year and I was always kept abreast of the status. Whenever I reached out to Ingrid, she replied the same day, even on weekends and holidays. I found her and her staff to be caring and I would gladly recommend them to my friends and family

She's the best!
Ingrid Evans and her firm have done well fighting for the rights and recompense of consumers who have been harmed by powerful corporations. I and many others in my class action suit reaped great results by utilizing their services. Without them, my complaints would have gone nowhere. They made it easy for me to stand up to the monstrous corporate entity that had so brazenly abused me. I don't think I could have asked for a more satisfying outcome.

Sometimes in life you just get lucky and find good people to do business with
Like anyone dealing with accident claim for the first time, it is a new process and you are nervous about who to pick as your attorney. My partner and I got rear ended and we were not very familiar with the process, but knew that without legal representation our car insurance company would screw us over (and no surprise, they tried multiple times). We are glad we found Ingrid Evans through word of mouth to represent us. Ingrid, not only spent time with us explaining the entire process but also handled it very professionally. Keep in mind that this is not an overnight process and may take some time, but rest assured, Ingrid is by your side during the whole process. Sometimes in life you get lucky and find good people to do business with and Ingrid is one of those few. We highly recommend Ingrid Evan and her firm to anyone dealing with a personal injury case. Having the right lawyer is a must and Ingrid is just that, the right lawyer!

Excellent Financial Elder Abuse Attorney
We have been consulting with Ingrid for a couple of years now on a lengthy and highly complex financial elder abuse case. Regardless of Ingrid's large work volume, she has always made herself accessible and offered suggestions and advice in a very timely manner. We have worked with a number of attorneys over the years on this case; however, Ingrid has been the most impressive and we couldn't be more satisfied with her service and assistance.

Ingrid Evans, rescued a family legacy!
Evans Law firm has been wonderful to work with. From my very first conversation with Ingrid I knew I was working with a firm who cared about me and getting results. From filing a civil lawsuit and reaching a settlement in record time, to negotiating 100% return of my remaining investment with an annuity company refusing to deal with my requests, Ingrid knew exactly what to do. Without Ingrid my family would be left without a lifetime of savings. Most experiences with law firms in my past have been painful, long drawn out wallet draining experiences. Evans Law Firm deserves lots of Kudos. I will be sharing my experience at every opportunity possible. Ingrid I cannot thank you enough. Bill

Fantastic Elder Abuse Attorney
We highly recommend Ingrid for elderly abuse cases as well as other legal matters. My brother and I were looking for a good lawyer to help us get through a very difficult and painful case that involved the financial abuse of our 91 year old father. When we met with Ingrid, she really listened to my dad and made him feel safe. Ingrid was very dedicated and diligent in working on this complex financial case. Her exceptional knowledge of Financial Elderly Abuse law was critical in bringing us a successful outcome. My dad is extremely grateful to Ingrid for her compassion and support through this process and can now enjoy his golden years.

The most honest, wise, and skillful lawyer I have ever worked with.
Ingrid Evans saved me a huge amount of money and rescued me from a huge amount of legal frustration. I went to her as a second opinion when I felt like my law suit was not being handled well. She quickly and efficiently got everything on track. In retrospect, she saved me hundreds of thousands of dollars. Having the right lawyer makes all the difference in the world. Ingrid was professional, but more importantly, she was honest, wise, and skillful.

Awesome Elder Law Attorney
One only needs to read about the vast and many accomplishments, honors and awards bestowed upon Ms. Ingrid Evans to know that she is knowledgeable in providing exemplary legal counsel regarding Elder Financial Abuse, Elder Financial Exploitation and Annuities Fraud. I felt divine intervention was at work when I was fortunate enough to receive a prompt telephone call after emailing my eighty year old Mother’s story along with a plea for legal assistance to the Evans Law Firm. Thank you, Ms. Ingrid Evans, for you personal emails and telephone calls to keep me apprised of what “the next step” will be. Your awesome accomplishments, honors and awards can only be surpassed by your genuine empathy, listening skills, and extraordinary legal knowledge. Your kindness and business focus of helping those who cannot help themselves is a very powerful combination that is truly inspiring. I would highly recommend that you contact Ms. Ingrid Evans of the Evans Law Firm if you or a loved one is or has been a victim of a financial institution that has committed what appears to be financial elder abuse by soliciting and preying upon an elder who can no longer cognitively represent themselves due to a diagnosis of dementia. I thank you, Ms. Ingrid Evans, from the bottom of my heart for all that you are presently doing to help right the gross injustice perpetrated against my fragile Mother.

Review for Ingrid Evans
Attorney Ingrid Evans came highly recommended to my 90 year old father by his estate attorney. The complex elder financial abuse issues within his case required an attorney who's knowledge and expertise specialized in both elder financial abuse law and investment fraud law. Ingrid Evans was patient and caring during the many times she had to meet with my father. Ingrid's professional and knowledgeable ways of speaking and understanding elder clients was very much appreciated by my father and his family. When his health began to fail Ingrid Evans would take the time to meet with him at the care facility. Within a short period of time Ingrid Evans aggressively pursued every complex issue within my fathers case. Ingrid Evans Law was able to recover significant monetary damages for my father. The Evans law Firm is extremely knowledgeable in elder financial abuse law and investment fraud law. I highly recommend ingrid Evans (The Evans Law Firm).
