Breakout 7: Florida Chapter Showcase Session: Florida’s New Exploitation Statute-Implementation in the Legislature.
Presented by Shannon Miller and Twyla Sketchley
This session will include a full review of the process for passage of this measure in the Legislature and a review of how Florida Elder Law Attorneys are using this statute to incorporate exploitation into their practices. After this session, attendees will be able to start their own campaign for Exploitation Statutes that protect our most vulnerable citizens: promote elder law attorneys through education and media coverage on Exploitation; and utilize civil theft and civil exploitation together with the guardianship process to assist clients.
Miller Elder Law Firm is committed to the training and education of elder law and other attorneys to recognize and find the best legal solution for exploitation of the elderly.
