Nursing Home Abuse
Jacksonville’s Expert Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

Our Proven Approach
With more than 30 years experience in protecting the rights of elders in our community, we know what it takes to build a strong nursing home abuse case. We’ve developed the following approach to successfully fight large nursing home chains and the insurance companies that help perpetuate the abuse.
- Free Case Consultation
The first step is to contact us for a free case consultation. There is no obligation to move forward with your case after this consultation. Instead, it is an opportunity for you to learn about your rights and all your options so you can make an informed decision that is best for you and your family.
- Full Discovery
Should you choose to move forward with working with us on your case, the next step is to do a full discovery. It is important that we truly understand your loved one and how the abuse has impacted your family.
- Team Approach
A team led by Steve will gather, preserve, and document all the evidence needed to build a strong case against the nursing home and any other party responsible for the abuse. Too often in nursing home abuse cases, evidence gets destroyed or lost. Our team, consisting of medical experts, forensic accountants, and legal professionals, are experts in uncovering the truth.
- Case Proven Before Served
After all the evidence is gathered, we will discuss going to trial. We prepare every case as if it’s going to trial so will never pressure you to settle for less than you and your family deserve. Oftentimes, cases must go to trial to achieve justice, and we are passionate about pursuing full value for nursing home abuse victims and their families.
- Preparation & Trial
We understand that going to trial and facing the abuser can be stressful. That’s why we spend a lot of time preparing you for trial. We don’t want you to just feel ready; we want you to feel empowered to share your story in the courtroom. Our proprietary trial preparation system has been refined over 25 years with the input of multiple experts.
