What can I do legally?
My mom is 84 years old.

If you believe that your mom is the victim of elderly abuse by a con man then get offline and into the local police station (where your mom lives).
There's not much more for me (or any cyber-lawyer) to tell you.
If the cops are not interested (if they do not believe that a crime has been committed) then speak ato a civil lawyer who knows something about contracts and real property transactions and see about a civil lawsuit.
I hope that I have been helpful in answering your question.
First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo. Fourth: Anything that you post on Avvo (or on similar sites) or on any social media is by its nature public. It is essentially an admission / confession and can be introduced into evidence as a statement against your interest in a subsequent legal proceeding. Once posted you lose any reasonable expectation of privacy, so, as this is an open forum (with no privilege attached), please be extra careful when considering what to post online (forewarned is forearmed.)
This is not a criminal defense question, is it? What you might be able to do is to report this to the elderly abuse hotline.

Any statements made by me are based upon the limited facts you have presented, and under the premise that you will consult with a local attorney. This is not an attempt to solicit business.
