Elder Abuse Can Affect Anyone– Even Mickey Rooney


Mickey Rooney took a courageous step recently when he stepped before congress to discuss his personal problems related to elder abuse.  Amazingly, this legendary actor discussed how he and his family have been impacted by elder abuse for years.

Hopefully, the publicity brought on this important topic will be the impetuous to encourage others to step forward and begin standing up for both themselves and others who are victims of elder abuse.

  1. Annie says:

    I want to thank Mr. Rooney for his work in standing up for this type of abuse. As a recent Master’s Graduate, I researched elder abuse and the numbers were staggering.
    I would be honored to sit with Mr. Rooney and talk to him regarding this matter. I recently had an elderly friend who was victimized by this kind of predator. Nowadays
    people are living longer but not necessarily independently, and there are constantly others out there who are more than willing to take advantage of them. Mr. Rooney is a hero.

Justia Lawyer Rating for Jonathan Rosenfeld

Client Reviews

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
