People who care for seniors or supervise children have a responsibility to make decisions that are in their best interests. If these caretakers or guardians have access to funds, they need to treat those funds properly. Breach of trust and elder abuse are serious charges that come out of alleged mistreatment and carry significant penalties for those who are convicted.
At Engel & Associates, we know that false allegations of breach of trust can damage a person’s reputation and future. Our lawyers provide experienced criminal defence in order to help our clients avoid or reduce the potential penalties and consequences brought on by a criminal conviction. Most people charged with these types of crimes have never been in trouble with the law before. We will guide you through the criminal process as effectively as possible.
A breach of trust can happen in cases where guardians take advantage of children or caretakers take advantage of seniors. It can also happen as the result of political fraud, corroborate fraud, insider trading or other scenarios where one party is taken advantage of financially.
Bruce Engel has the patience and experience to thoroughly review the charges against you, the alleged events and the evidence to build an effective defence for you. Given the consequences that are at stake, you need to take action immediately.
