Case Study: Financial Elder Abuse

Mr. Biegel defended a real estate and mortgage broker accused of elder financial abuse, i.e. improperly taking hundreds of thousands of dollars from elderly clients in unsound investments. The case was tried before a Monterey County jury and received substantial publicity in the local press. Our private investigator was able to locate a number of helpful witnesses and many of the supposed “victims” testified on our client’s behalf. Originally charged with 13 felonies, the matter proceeded to a jury trial where the trial judge dismissed two of the counts and the jury found the defendant not guilty of the remaining 11 felony counts.

Case Study: MLM Company Charged with Being An Endless Chain

Mr. Biegel represented an out-of-state firm that used a multi-level marketing model to sell its products. The principals of that firm were arrested in the midst of making a motivational speech to their distributors at a local hotel. The individuals and the company were charged by the Monterey County District Attorney’s Office with felony crimes and also named defendants in a companion civil complaint. After an almost year-long battle with prosecutors, Mr. Biegel was able to carve out a result to settle the civil suit in the company’s favor. As to the individual defendants, the settlement resulted in a misdemeanor conviction, no jail time, and a $100 fine. This result could be compared to the prosecution of a similar company in Kentucky, which resulted in a $14 million fine and imprisonment of the principals in a federal penitentiary for 11 years.
