As a pioneering flight attendant with Trans World Airlines, Audrey McNamara Nevis dedicated more than 40 years of her life to serving and helping others. But when she reached retirement, Audrey became a victim of financial elder abuse through predatory lending. Her Lucas Valley home was refinanced 15 times. Without any family and facing homelessness at age 81, Audrey came to Legal Aid of Marin for help.
Representing Audrey for nearly six years up until she passed away in 2013, LAM helped reach a settlement that secured housing for the remainder of Audrey’s life, restoring her dignity and respect at a time when she needed it most.
If someone you know or love is a victim of financial elder abuse, know that our community has an ally in LEGAL AID OF MARIN. Please “Tip Your Hat For Justice” with LAM on December 4 at the Panama Hotel and help support our work on behalf of older adults like Audrey.
