(West Palm Beach, Florida) February 20, 2019

Mark Shalloway— president of Palm Beach elder law firm, Shalloway & Shalloway—is pleased to announce a new post on the law firm’s website. Mark Shalloway and his dedicated staff of elder law attorneys use the site’s blog and newsletter functions to keep their clients updated with the latest in the fields surrounding elder law. Shalloway’s most recent post is on new updates surrounding Florida’s Special Needs Trust Law.

As per a previous piece, recent changes to the federal law now make it so individuals with disabilities can establish their own trusts (a “first person trust”) rather than having someone set it up on their behalf. A new bill, however, makes it easier for trustees to change the terms of the trust. This means they could rewrite the terms of the trust, which may (or may not) be a good thing.

No matter what happens under the changes of the law, the staff at Shalloway & Shalloway will be there for their clients. For 30 years now, Mark Shalloway and his elder law attorneys have provided help to clients on cases big and small. During such a trying time in one’s life, it is crucial they have an attorney behind them that is passionate about their needs. The staff at Shalloway & Shalloway are those professionals.

“It really makes a difference when clients can tell their attorney wants the best for them,” Brandon Bell, a legal consultant in Oak Park, Illinois, says. “In such a trying time in one’s life, it is crucial they feel supported. Mark Shalloway and his staff provide clients with that support they crave, as well as the results they need.”

Mark Shalloway Defines What Financial Exploitation of Elders Is

(West Palm Beach, Florida) November 15, 2018

Mark Shalloway, owner of Shalloway and Shalloway, is pleased to announce the firm’s newsletter on financial exploitation of elders. While most people think of elder abuse as physical assault or neglect, there is much more that can cause serious harm to a senior. Out of the types of abuse that unfortunately befall too many vulnerable adults, financial exploitation is one of the most prevalent.

“Elders are financially exploited when an individual illegally takes, misuses, or conceals their funds, properties or assets.” The newsletter states. Shalloway’s piece outlines that the two of the most common forms of financial abuse include fraud by strangers, or exploitation by relatives and/or caregivers.

In this newsletter, Shalloway informs us that, while there is no clear-cut definition of financial abuse, there are many signs to look out for. From strangers, it could mean a sweepstakes winner scam, where the winner must pay a ridiculous fee before claiming their “prize,” or gold bar/diamond scam, where the scammer offers to purchase the elder’s “fake” jewelry at a large discount. From, a relative, it could mean signing/cashing pension checks without permission, or continually borrowing money and never repaying it. To learn more about what financial abuse is, and how to recognize it, read the newsletter.

This publication is one of many from the elder law firm, Shalloway and Shalloway. The staff are dedicated to not only protecting the rights of the elder community, but educating these elders and their family members so that they can better protect themselves and their assets. The firm’s free, monthly seminars are designed to take that teaching and put a face to the name.

The staff at Shalloway & Shalloway truly care about the people,” Brandon Bell of St. Louis, Missouri says. “That is the most important aspect of their work, I think.”
