Houston Senior Consumer Protection
As a crusader of Seniors’ rights and protection, Ms. Norma Bradley of Advocate Legal Senior Center is passionate about solving and preventing Senior Consumer abuse. There are many abuse factors concerning Seniors. As they get older, Seniors need protection from certain relatives and the general public.
The purpose of this is to provide an overview of various types of Consumer fraud issues to Seniors in the Houston area and statewide. It is not an exhaustive list, but rather is meant to provide information for Seniors, Veterans, and the disabled. When you choose Advocate Senior Legal Center, we will conduct a needs assessment. Each Senior’s issue is different from the other.
