Parker Smith is the PLS Elder Consumer Law Attorney who specializes in helping senior citizens who are the victims of fraud or financial abuse.
She says, “Sometimes people dismiss senior citizens, but I enjoy interacting with older people. They have a lot of life experience and have worked hard over their lifetimes to earn their retirement and Social Security income.”
“That’s part of what makes them vulnerable,” Smith continues. “They have consistent income and they can often be more isolated, which makes them vulnerable as well.”
