Thank you for representing my family and successfully defending our civil suit on behalf of my aunt. Having never participated in this kind of litigation, I was unaware of how to proceed or what to expect from the court system. After speaking with you, I found myself impressed by your knowledge of the law and your unrelenting devotion to holding perpetrators accountable for their actions. You swept aside any fears I had by providing detailed explanations of how the lawsuit would proceed, possible outcomes, and requirements of California law regarding this type of litigation.
Interacting with your support staff, Emily Jensen and Whitney Miyamoto, was an equally satisfying experience. Their efficiency, professionalism, and kindness gave me a sense of relief and assurance that my family had in place the right team at the right time. My faith in our legal system remains firmly intact because of the actions of your firm and those who led me to your door.
The trauma of my aunt's passing still lingers with us but our grief has been tempered by the knowledge that your firm was able to hold those responsible for the negligence that caused her death. In retrospect, I am reminded of a quote from Mahatma Gandhi: "The true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members."
I will gladly and without hesitation recommend Lanzone Morgan, LLP to anyone who has experienced abuse or neglect of a loved one while in the care of another. Once again, thank you for your compassion and the unwavering pursuit of justice for my family.
A very professional law firm with a responsive and very caring staff. The attorneys are top-notch, aggressive, and articulable in reaching an equitable yet fair settlement for all parties involved in our case. Would highly recommend!
Our attorney and the entire staff at this firm were remarkable. Especially Emily that walked us through everything at the beginning of the process. They worked wonders for our family and our mother whom they represented. They are quick, as much as they can be in the entire process, as well as informative, and were in constant contact with us through the entire process. I would wholeheartedly recommend this firm to anyone. They work wonders and if for some reason are unable to, they let you know as soon as possible so you can make a well-thought-out decision for your next step.
I contacted Lanzone Morgan regarding neglect suffered by my mother at a rehabilitation facility. My initial contact was with Emily, she is very professional and compassionate. I immediately felt I was in the right place. She took the time to listen and made me feel that the number one priority was my mother and seeking justice for her. This was confirmed by Mr. Morgan, not only is he very knowledgeable but he took a human approach to our case and allowed us to make the best decision for my mother. I highly recommend their services. They will protect the interests of your loved ones.
Dealing with the grief of losing your loved one is difficult but when it's at the hands of a facility that we trusted to care for our mother, it's overwhelming hard. At times I feel like if I choose a different place my mother would still be here. From the moment I called Lanzone Morgan with my complaint, everything went amazingly smooth. They were understanding, kind, and effective at winning our case. I have never been through this process before but I was extremely surprised how fast it went! They dealt with us with care because they knew we were struggling to adapt to life without our mother and submitting the documents they needed and all the questions and stress that comes with filing a case. To anyone that has lost a loved one or endured pain and suffering at the hands of another, I 100% recommend Lazone Morgan. It is getting the justice my mother deserved and saving others from the same fate.
Learning that my mother was dying of Alzheimer's was devastating on its own. The emotional toll of the disease, treatment costs, and learning who to trust with her care was exhausting. When that trust was breached by a memory care facility, resulting in her death, I hired Lanzone Morgan to ensure that my mother's memory would not be marred by one facility's negligence. This firm was empathetic, informative, and patient with my family and me during the entire litigation. With their help, we received a fair settlement from the memory care facility and most importantly brought us a sense of justice and peace and brought dignity to my mother's life and our memory of her.
Lanzone Morgan LLP Team has been a light for my family in a time when there was so much darkness. The professionalism with compassion made a very difficult time easier to deal with. I knew that the Team was fighting for my Mom. Death is always a hard thing to deal with but when it is because of a nursing home neglect it is most heartbreaking. The fight was real Lanzone Morgan Team did not let them get away with it. I will say it again, Lanzone Morgan LLP Team has walked me and my family through a very dark place every step of the way.
My mother went into the hospital in March of 2007 complaining of numbness in her legs. Within a week she had a pressure sore on her tail bone that had become black with dead muscle tissue. She had not been taken out of bed once during these seven days. She had not been fed or cared for on a regular basis as well as no tests or diagnoses were performed on her. Within 3 months, my mother developed M.R.S.A. and was dehydrated as well as malnourished. My mother was left to feed herself but was not able to due to not being able to think clearly because of the severe infections she had acquired, leaving my brother and myself to come in on regular shifts and feed her ourselves. As a result of negligence and irresponsibility on the part of the hospital and doctors, my mother passed away on June 19th of the same year. We were referred to Mr. Morgan in July of that year and were very impressed with his mannerism and his ability to make us feel very relaxed and comfortable. He was able to bring resolve to the loss of our mother due to the incompetence of the people that were supposed to be responsible for her care and well-being. We feel that Mr. Morgan handled this case in a very professional and timely manner. Without him, this would not have been possible.
My mother received very poor care at a hospital and a nursing home. They did not give her enough food or water, and she became malnourished and dehydrated. Then she developed many pressure sores. I believed that the abuse and neglect of the staff at both the hospital and the nursing home caused my mother’s suffering and death. I trusted my case with James Morgan. He helped me through my deposition and through the whole case. He was able to work my case and command a very favorable settlement against both the nursing home and the hospital. I hope that by bringing this case, the hospital and nursing home get the message that they will not be allowed to get away with neglecting elderly people.
I lost the dearest person in my life, my Grandmother, due to nursing home neglect. It was the most heartbreaking thing I have experienced in my life. I contacted other attorneys who said they could not help me, not even giving me the time to explain. I did not give up. I contacted Lanzone Morgan, and that was the day my life changed. They listened to me. They cared for me and fought for me. Finally, I found someone to take on the nursing home for me and my grandmother. They took the time to make sure the nursing home did not get away with neglecting my loved one. Thank you Lanzone Morgan for everything you have done and for bringing closure to my family. God has blessed us with people like you who care about what happens to our senior citizens and the way that they are treated in a place where we trust them to care about what is sacred to our hearts … family. Thank you.
My 33-year-old adult son AJ who is permanently disabled due to a premature birth was living in a community living home where he was not receiving good care. The care provider had been servicing my son for over four years and the level of care continued to decline each year. After years of addressing the issues with the care provider and no improvement with the care level, I had no other options and I contacted Lanzone Morgan. With Lanzone Morgan’s expertise and prompt intervention, my son was able to quickly transition into another community home that is providing excellent care. My son’s quality of life has been greatly improved and I now have peace of mind. Had I not gotten Lanzone Morgan involved this would have had a very different outcome.
My mother was neglected at a nursing home. I knew that they neglected her, but they denied it. I also knew that other people were neglected at that same nursing home. I found attorney James Morgan, and he helped me hold the nursing home responsible for their conduct. When we complained to the nursing home, they just ignored us. We did not get any response until attorney Morgan got on the case. My family and I thank attorney Morgan for doing a great job on our case and not letting the nursing home get away with neglecting our mother.
My husband died unexpectedly in a tragic accident while he was traveling for work in California. My daughter and I were devastated and did not know what to do. We trusted attorney James Morgan to handle our case. Mr. Morgan believed in our case. He knew that my husband’s death was avoidable and should not have happened, and he proved it. Mr. Morgan worked very hard on our case. He kept me informed, and he helped us through every step of the case. Mr. Morgan’s hard work helped us settle the case in the early stages, and he protected us from the stress of a long, drawn-out trial. Even after the case settled, Mr. Morgan continued to check on me to make sure that my daughter and I were doing all right. Mr. Morgan cares about his clients and cares about the cases he works on. I greatly appreciate Mr. Morgan handling our case for us and helping us during this difficult time in our lives. I will forever be grateful for Mr. Morgan’s help and most of all for his kind heart.
My case with Lanzone Morgan, LLP involved the death of my mother that I believed would not have occurred if not for the harmful actions or the negligence of another party. I was unsure if I had any recourse and was uncertain of my next steps. During this emotionally grueling time, I spoke with Anthony Lanzone and immediately was impressed with his knowledge regarding my case. Whenever I called with questions Mr. Lanzone listened to my input and quickly responded to my questions and concerns. Mr. Lanzone and the firm’s lawyers were highly experienced in this area of law. They always notified me prior to filing a motion and explained to me what was being filed. The fees were reasonable and explained upfront. While it is very difficult to put a value on the life of a loved one and no amount of money could ever replace my mother, the damages awarded eased my mind in that I have done something to hopefully prevent this from happening to someone else’s loved one. Lanzone and Morgan renewed my faith in the legal profession and represented me and my family with dignity and professionalism during a very difficult time.
My attorney, Kathryn Salmond at Lanzone Morgan, exceeded my expectations. Throughout the process, I felt as though I was her only client and that my needs were always catered to in good time. I truly believed my uncle and I had the best representation in our corner. The billing was reasonable and fair. The work on my end was minimal. It’s obvious she can handle herself in a courtroom as well. Working with geriatrics is my passion and it’s good to know people like the attorneys at Lanzone Morgan and their team are there to hold facilities and individuals accountable for the care and treatment of our seniors. The newspaper article in their lobby proves just that. Thank you again for your dedication and compassion. I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes that remind me of why I do what I do every day:
“I will fight with you, I will remember for you, I will advocate because of you, and I will one day honor the memory of you, always, until the sun will rise over a day without Alzheimer’s or dementia.” Mara Botonis, “When Caring Takes Courage.”
We were in extremely capable hands. Lanzone Morgan did an extraordinary job. The attorneys handling our case demonstrated passion for what they did and always kept an exceedingly positive attitude despite working on a very tough and emotional case. The attorneys were always appropriately candid and direct about what to expect and potential outcomes and scenarios, and yet the compassion for the family was always evident. We felt that they cared for each of us, for our Grandma, and about the case on a very personal level. They were always there to support us through each step of the process and to let us know what to expect in depositions, mediation, and more. The attorneys were competent and were on top of every tiny detail and aspect of our case; they knew it backward and forwards. They did a phenomenal job of responding to everyone’s questions and being there to support the whole family. We were impressed with Lanzone Morgan.
I hired another law firm to work on my case and paid them a lot of money. They dragged the case out and were not able to achieve a settlement or a favorable result. I fired that law firm and took my case to the law office of Lanzone Morgan. Mr. Morgan met with me right away, figured out what I needed, and got on top of the case. He worked hard and achieved a favorable result within a few months. I wish I had taken my case to Lanzone Morgan in the first place. It would have saved a lot of trouble, expense, and years of litigation. I highly recommend starting your case with Lanzone Morgan. I appreciate them for their experience and hard work.
I suffered a fall and fractured femur after the staff would not answer my call light. Lanzone Morgan, LLP took my case and helped me obtain a successful settlement.
Lanzone Morgan is the best law firm I have ever dealt with. They took a case no one else would take and helped me get a good settlement! They made my horrible ordeal a comforting and pleasant experience! I recommend this law firm highly … the best of the best. Trust me, if you need a lawyer, these folks are it! Thank you Jim Morgan and associates. I will forever recommend you.
When the need arose to seek out help from a law firm specializing in elder abuse, I was very fortunate to find Lanzone Morgan. I cannot say enough great things about everyone! During what was a very difficult time regarding my Mother’s lack of proper care and treatment in a nursing home, the Lanzone Morgan team provided the empathy, compassion, and support one would receive from their own family.
My initial contact was a meeting with Emily Jensen, who is the most sincere and compassionate soul that reviewed the allegations and immediately began fighting on behalf of my Mom. Emily remained in contact with me until eventually scheduling an introduction with Mr. James Morgan. From that point moving forward, I always felt the firm really cared for us. Their solicitude is further exemplified by the office wall displaying so many beautiful pictures of clients represented by the Lanzone Morgan firm.
Emily and Mr. Morgan continued to follow my Mom’s declining health from the nursing home neglect, which ultimately led to her passing. Their frequent communication and concern always made me feel someone was fighting for my Mom. Every lawyer, para-legal, and staff member involved with the case worked as if it was their own mother who was neglected and abused. Each person brought a tremendous level of experience and compassion!
To Emily and Mr. Morgan, I cannot thank you enough for your kind hearts and incredible dedication! Everyone’s efforts resulted in a favorable case resolution and on behalf of my Mom, I’m forever grateful.
When something so terrible happened late October 2012, I was caught off guard by the tragic state of eldercare. My dear sweet mother resided in the two-person care home for only 10 days when as a result of over medication and neglect, she fell and sustained a serious head injury. The residence was owned by an RN and was supervised by a doctor and another nurse, so I thought she was in good hands. Seeking an answer to what happened I received three separate inconsistent stories. I looked for Law firms that handled elder abuse cases and made an appointment to speak with James Morgan of Lanzone Morgan LLC.
I found Jim to be a knowledgeable and compassionate advisor who agreed to champion my mother's case hoping to assure this group of residential care facilities could no longer operate. The legal team was awesome and they were well prepared for the trial which took almost an entire week.
The jury found the owner guilty of elder abuse. The owner appealed the decision but failed in that effort. There were many more obstacles to overcome with the owner attempting bankruptcy and other ways to avoid making recompense. In the end, she signed over the deeds to two homes that were residential care facilities.
My mom’s legal team was skilled in their approach and tenacity to see justice was served for Jeanette! Many thanks to the partners, attorneys that presented the case, and the administrative folks that do so much behind the scene.
If you or a loved one have been a victim of elder abuse and/or neglect and are seeking representation that will hold the responsible party accountable while treating you as if you are the firm's only client, then your search is over when you select the law firm of Lanzone Morgan. My father's case was at the very end of the statute of limitations and had not been examined by anyone following his untimely passing. Nonetheless, when I spoke with Emily Jensen, her compassion and personal interest in seeking accountability on behalf of my father were immediately apparent. The firm treated me as if I had been a long-time client and took an immediate interest in myself, my family, and the pursuit of justice for my father. They deliberately sheltered us from unnecessary distractions and other stressors kept us fully informed on the progression of the case and left no stone unturned in the quest for the truth and eventual justice for my father. The LM team and our assigned attorney, Reza Sobati, were always compassionate, professional, and dedicated to the overall best interests of my family, and I unhesitatingly recommend their services to anyone who requires their expertise in the field of elder abuse or neglect. The firm successfully negotiated a settlement between my family and the defendants that held the defendants accountable for their actions, obtained justice for my father, and gave my family the closure we had been seeking for almost 4 years. I sincerely hope that I never need LM's type of assistance again, but if I do, there is no other firm on the planet that I would trust to handle my needs as if they were their own. LM is simply the best and I recommend the firm to anyone in need.
I have worked with other attorneys before, but never have I felt the attorneys or his team cared about my situation as did James Morgan. If you want someone that really takes the time to understand your situation and your concerns, then you want James Morgan on your side. My situation could have gone south so many times, but his professionalism and ability to communicate well made it possible for my situation to resolve itself far quicker with a greater outcome than expected. Thank you, James and your team!
