Protecting the elderly from crimes of fraud committed against the elderly is the focus of David Kessler’s training and consulting efforts. He has dedicated his professional life to providing education and guidance for public and private sector professionals on the topic of exploitation of the elderly, and making certain those who prey on elderly victims are punished.
