Cameron DeGuerre, a Chicago litigation lawyer, was recently quoted in two different articles from Investment News.

CHICAGO, IL -- Cameron DeGuerre, a litigation attorney in Chicago who specializes in trust and estate litigation, guardianship, special needs planning and estate planning, was recently quoted in two articles in Investment News. The publication is distributed to financial advisors and provides up-to-date information that's designed to help advisors grow their practices, as well as their clients' portfolios.

The two articles, both on financial elder abuse, highlighted the growing problem of elder abuse. It's suspected that each year, between 500,000 and 5 million elderly Americans are abused, exploited or neglected

"Elder abuse is difficult to uncover because it typically goes unreported. In some cases, the elder is unable to tell anyone about the abuse, but in others, the elder is scared to report the abuse. This could be because many elders depend heavily on their abusers for food, shelter and other necessities. Abuse could be physical or emotional, but in many cases, the abuser takes financial control after being appointed guardian or being granted a power of attorney. If you suspect that a guardian is taking advantage of a loved one, please contact an attorney to see how you can help them out of a bad situation," said Chicago litigation lawyer DeGuerre (

In addition to being quoted in the two Investment News articles, DeGuerre has been appointed Special Assistant Attorney General for many different pieces of litigation brought against the State of Illinois or its representatives and frequently serves as a Guardian Ad Litem in Probate Court. She has also been appointed Special Administrator to address complicated disputes regarding estate issues. She frequently lectures before the Illinois State Bar Association, The Chicago Bar Association, The National Business Institute, as well as local hospitals, assisted living facilities, nursing homes and other community organizations.

DeGuerre was recently named as a partner with the estate planning attorney in Chicago and is a member of a number of professional organizations, including the Probate Practice Committee of the Chicago Bar Association, the Joint Task Force Affecting Women As They Age and the Judicial Screening Committee for the Women's Bar Association of Illinois. She also serves as the vice president of membership of the Auxiliary Board of Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

"I'm passionate about preventing elder abuse and teaching others how recognize and prevent it. I'm extremely proud co-authoring a chapter titled 'The Legal and Governmental Response to Domestic Elder Abuse,' for the Clinics of Geriatric Medicine's special edition on elder abuse. Elder abuse is completely preventable and with some education and hard work, I'm sure it can be eliminated," said DeGuerre.
