Areas of Practice
Nursing Homes & Assisted Living Facilities
We understand how difficult the decision to place your loved one into a nursing home must be.
Bedsores go by many names — pressure sores, pressure ulcers, decubitus ulcers — but this does not change the serious nature of these injuries.
Hydration is part of basic nursing care. Elderly residents commonly need help swallowing or require monitoringfor proper nutrition or hydration.
Sexual Abuse/Physical Abuse
Abuse can come at the hands either a nursing home staff or other residents in the facility. Whatever the cause, the results can be devastating.
A significant amount of elderly residents require care and attention based on their complex medication schedules and intricate dietary needs.
In a challenging economy, any organization will look to be more profitable. Not surprisingly, the single greatest cost to a nursing home is staffing.

Deborah and her firm handled a case for my family. During that time, our brother passed away at an assisted living facility from bedsores. Everyone at the firm was so caring and involved. Words cannot express our gratitude. I want to thank you for what you did for my family, for always being there for us, and fighting hard for us.
I strongly recommend Deborah, and her team, for anyone who is looking for caring and tough attorneys to represent them. My mom was horribly neglected in a nursing home. Deborah uncovered the lies I was repeatedly told and fought hard for justice. She was always there to answer our questions and guide us along the way.
Thank you Deborah for fighting for us and believing in our case. We are so grateful for your sensitivity and passion. We went through some very hard times and feel very lucky to have you represent us.
Deborah helped our family get justice for the neglect of our father who was in a nursing home. She was very dedicated to our case and fought hard to expose the nursing home for the poor care he received. We highly recommend Deborah and her team.
