Why Only Skilled Nursing Elder Cases?

Why Only Skilled Nursing Elder Cases?

Why Only Skilled Nursing Elder Cases?

Why go to your general doctor for a tooth cavity?  Why go to a general dentist for a root canal?  You deserve the attention and knowledge obtained by an attorney who does nothing but focus on YOUR ISSUES that arise from a failure in Skilled Nursing services.  


WE ONLY SERVE PLAINTIFFS! (That means YOU!)  You can trust that your issue and loved one is treated with dignity, care and compassion because, that's all we do.

Our Approach

Why Only Skilled Nursing Elder Cases?

Why Only Skilled Nursing Elder Cases?

Your issue and concerns are directly reviewed by an attorney within 48 hours. Don't believe it?  Call or click on "Contact Us". In  Skilled Nursing or "Nursing Homes" or "Assisted Living," issues should be dealt with immediately.  The reality is, a simple fall in the bathroom can be "life or death."  Decubitus ulcers, bed sores, malnutrition, acute renal failure, dehydration, and nursing staff can quickly lead to intense suffering and death.  It's important to us to investigate any suspicion you may have as soon as possible.  The best case scenario we can hope for is a misunderstanding, but most of the time, suspicion is the tip of a sinister, profits-driven facility motive.

No attorney or law firm can, or should guarantee specific results in your case.  All cases are different and based on a unique set of facts and circumstances.  


We never back-down or let up on holding facilities accountable and fighting for results that satisfy you.  Although past settlements are significant, we will never become complacent or over-confident. 

Meet the Founder

Robert J. Harelson

A graduate from JFKU , Robert began his mission to serve the elderly from a very young age.  With a deep respect for, and close relationship with his grandparents, Robert interned at the Elder Law Clinic while pursuing his Juris Doctorate.  Robert enjoyed working as Partner at Diamond Baker Mitchell (DBM), a law firm with over 100 years of combined plaintiff personal injury, insurance defense, and business litigation experience.  While a Partner at DBM, Robert developed close relationships with founder, Craig Diamond, for whom Robert has the utmost respect and reverence.  While at Diamond Baker Mitchell, Robert developed a plaintiff's cause of action for Elder Abuse and Neglect, which became a very successful product and practice modality.  The newest iteration of that product is "Elder Law Hawk," a 100% fighter for Elderly residents in care facilities who suffer injury, humiliation, neglect, and injustices.  Roberts experience with people from all walks of life, supported by his past employment in government, provide a wholistic and complete approach to working with those who have, and are currently suffering from the wrongful acts of elder care facilities and their staff.
