- Actor Mickey Rooney Speaks Out Against Elder Abuse in AZ
Elder abuse is a growing problem in Arizona and in the rest of the United States, and perhaps the worst aspect of this real problem is the fact that for the most part, it’s a silent problem. Older people who are being abused are often times unable to bring attention to the situation, and many other older people who suffer from abusers simply do not come forward because of fear and/or embarrassment. While the specifics of the situation are unfortunate, it could turn out to be the positive impetus that leads those who need it to seek the help of Arizona elder abuse lawyers now that Hollywood legend Mickey Rooney has spoken out in regards to his own horrifying experience.
Arizona Nursing Home Abuse and Micky Rooney
Mr. Rooney, who has been a known Hollywood name since he was a child, spoke to the United States Congress last week regarding the issue of elder abuse after having suffered through this treatment, allegedly at the hands of his stepson, although Mr. Rooney’s wife and stepson deny these allegations. Mr. Rooney told the legislators about his experiences that included being denied food and medicine and having his Oscar sold for cash. Mr. Rooney decided to speak publicly in regards to this situation because he wanted to bring awareness to the issue.
Elder abuse is a problem that does undetected by many people, but most experts agree that the situation is likely to get worse in Arizona and around the United States before it gets better. That’s because the population of the United States is aging collectively, and this aging process is placing a growing strain on meeting the growing demand for beds, facilities and ongoing care for older Americans. As a result, mistakes will occur with the hiring of staff and problems regarding Arizona elder abuse will slip through the cracks.

These situations can and should be met with both of the available arms of the law, as now is an important time to make it clear to those who tend to abuse the people who depend on them that they will pay a heavy price for this type of conduct if they engage in it.

I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
Liz Gonzales was great!!!!
