More than a century of elderly advocacy and over $3 billion in recoveries nationwide and throughout California
Seniors and their families have the right to expect that private at-home caretakers, adult daycare centers, nursing homes, and other residential care facilities will treat the elderly with the respect, dignity, and compassion they deserve. Sadly, many elderly care providers abuse, neglect, or take advantage of a senior. Many seniors are afraid or cognitively unable to report these horrible wrongs.

Garcia & Artigliere is ready to help obtain justice for seniors who are mistreated
Our lawyers are respected across America for our pledge to hold nursing homes, businesses, and individuals accountable for violating the rights and health of the elderly. We are the voice of the elderly. We’re ready to fight from day one to stop the unconscionable mistreatment of seniors by filing lawsuits against any people or businesses responsible for the mistreatment. The aims of our lawsuits are:
- To seek the maximum damages possible for the senior
- To seek the maximum award possible for the senior’s family if a loved one died due to abuse or neglect
- To seek court orders to stop the abuse and neglect - now - and to ensure no other seniors are harmed
The case is drawing a line in the sand. Through this case we are telling these operators who think that our elderly relatives’ and friends’ value is determined by how much money the operator can make off of them. We won’t stand for it anymore. It is time to stop this egregious abuse of the law and our elders.
– Attorney Stephen Garcia

Nationally recognized leaders for seniors when critical treatment of strokes is delayed
Most strokes can be treated with prompt quality care. Sadly, many caretakers who provide healthcare in a senior’s home, an adult care center, a nursing home, or an assisted living facility fail to notice the signs of stroke, improperly diagnoses the senior’s condition, and fail to ensure that life-saving emergency transport services are contacted.
If treatment for an ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke is delayed, the senior could suffer paralysis, serious mobility difficulties, communication challenges, and vision loss. Sadly, delayed treatment of a stroke may be fatal.
One drug, tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) helps to dissolve clots in seniors who are having an ischemic stroke, but only if the drug is given within a few hours from the onset of symptoms.
Seniors who live at home or in a facility and who are denied tPA or other life-saving care due to delayed treatments should contact Garcia & Artigliere today. Our national elder care attorneys work with cardiologists, neurologists, and others to show why any delays in treatment were inexcusable and why the care providers should be held liable for delayed treatment of stroke.
