Helping Victims of Nursing Home Abuse
Our law firm is committed to stopping nursing home abuse and neglect, as evidenced by our financial donations of over $500,000.00 to charitable organizations devoted to helping families and elderly residents who are abused or neglected, including the Bay Area Based CANHR (California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform) and Sacramento-based F.A.T.E. (Foundation Aiding the Elderly). Working on a volunteer basis, our attorneys also spend time educating families and other lawyers on what to look for when selecting a nursing home. Attorney Wendy C. York has authored articles on how to prosecute nursing homes in elder abuse cases and has taught seminars on the subject.
Capitol City Trial Lawyers Association
Wendy York has served as the Chairperson of the Community Outreach Committee for CCTLA and, as such, organized groups of 16 trial attorneys to help KVIE Public Television raise money during its Pledge Drive in 2005, 2006, and 2007.
Ms. York organized a group of attorneys to put on a Bicycle Safety Day to educate children on how to prevent head injuries. As a part of this event, attorneys raised money to purchase bicycle helmets to be delivered to disadvantaged children who may not be able to afford helmets in an effort to help prevent head injuries.
Muscular Dystrophy Association
Ms. York also donated her time to raise money for other worthy organizations, such as MDA (Muscular Dystrophy Association). MDA is a voluntary health agency – a dedicated partnership between scientists and concerned citizens aimed at conquering neuromuscular diseases that affect more than a million Americans.
