Elder Justice Task Force

The United States Attorney's Office, in coordination with the United States Department of Justice Civil Division, has launched an Elder Justice Task Force to combat neglect, abuse, and financial exploitation of seniors occurring in the Northern District of California. 

As part of this initiative, the office is actively engaged in efforts to:

  • Pursue nursing homes and other facilities that provide grossly substandard care to seniors
  • Investigate and prosecute financial scams targeting or disproportionately impacting seniors
  • Promote greater coordination with state and local partners to combat elder abuse
  • Provide training and resources to law enforcement to identify and respond to elder abuse

For more information about the Department of Justice’s elder justice initiative, please visit

The office welcomes information from the public that brings to our attention possible neglect, abuse or exploitation of seniors.  If you have information concerning a potential violation of federal laws that you wish to bring to our attention, please complete the

 and email, mail or fax it to the Elder Justice Coordinator in our Civil Division.

The United States Attorney’s Office is primarily a legal office and not an investigative agency. However, the Elder Justice Coordinator will evaluate your complaint and may take action on it or refer the complaint to another agency for investigation or other action.

Please keep in mind that this office cannot represent you in any matter. Therefore, you may need to consult and retain your own attorney.

The National Crime Victim Bar Association may be able to assist. You can contact them for more information, (202) 467-8716 or (844) 529-4357, or email or visit their website.
