Arizona Elder Law Attorneys

Our friends, parents, and grandparents hold a special place in our lives. Members of the Silent Generation, or possibly even the G.I. Generation, they give us comfort, advice based upon experience, and a window into our past. When they are not treated with the respect they deserve, it hurts us. And when they are taken advantage of, that hurt often transforms into frustration and confusion. This is where an Arizona elder law attorney can help.

At Berk & Moskowitz, P.C., we believe the exploitation and abuse of the elderly happens far too often, sadly by those closest to the victim. This could be a family member, friend, or caregiver who greedily helps themselves to your loved one’s money, property, or assets.

We are thankful that, under Arizona law, this kind of behavior is not tolerated. Special protections are provided, potentially imposing severe penalties on those who take advantage of, abuse or neglect incapacitated or vulnerable adults.

Your loved one is not likely going to take legal action alone. It is up to you to take that step and get them the help and guidance they need. If your loved one is a victim of financial exploitation or physical abuse or neglect, or you need to defend against allegations of such misconduct, contact Kent Berk or George Smith in Scottsdale to discuss the circumstances and ways that our firm may be able to help. We understand the available routes provided by Arizona elder law and can provide answers you can trust.

Scottsdale, AZ, Real Estate Disputes

Often in a real estate dispute, there are significant property and financial ramifications at stake for both parties. Knowing this, it is typically in the best interest to contact an experienced Arizona attorney when facing such an issue.

At Berk & Moskowitz, P.C., our team believes that it is best to approach a legal situation with careful consideration of all options and the costs/benefits of each. Our firm’s experience provides a foundation for that analysis. Before becoming a lawyer, Kent Berk worked in the Arizona real estate industry, holding a real estate license. He, along with the rest of the Scottsdale office, applies the knowledge gained during this time to our clients’ cases.

We have handled a wide range of Arizona real estate disputes, with many favorable outcomes by settlement and trial. These disputes have involved fraud, misrepresentation, seller and buyer duties to disclose, real estate agent and broker duties to disclose, breach of contract, option contracts, quiet title actions, boundary disputes, adverse possession, liquidated damages, real estate agent and broker commission disputes, homeowner’s association (HOA) and CC&R disputes, breach of warranty, wrongful liens and notices of lis pendens, among others.
