Stewart J. Levin, Esq.
Mr. Levin has been in active practice as a member of the California State Bar for more than three decades. Mr. Levin has successfully resolved numerous cases involving Elder Abuse and Neglect, Financial Elder Abuse, and Trust Contests by settlement, arbitration and trial. Mr. Levin has been an invited speaker to lecture on litigation topics to both lawyers and lay persons. These presentations have included CEB, Continuing Education of the Bar, on Financial Elder Abuse Litigation; the Elder Law Section of the Beverly Hills Bar Association on successful litigation of elder law cases, and an annual symposium to UCLA Psychiatrists on expert trial testimony in Elder Abuse and Will Contest cases. As a result of litigation and trial involving cases handled by Mr. Levin in the field of abuse of both the disabled and the elderly, significant changes in the care of cognitively impaired adults and the elderly have occurred in at least two major care institutions in Southern California.
Mr. Levin obtained his undergraduate degree at UC Santa Barbara, where he was selected to serve as a student representative of the U.S. State Department in Asia. He is a graduate of University of Oregon Law School.
Mr. Levin is uniquely suited to litigate cases involving the elderly, which often involve a blend of civil and probate litigation, including financial fraud, trust contests, breach of fiduciary duty, isolation, negligence, and elder neglect and abuse. During the first half of his legal career, Mr. Levin handled a variety of litigation cases, including personal injury, products liability, wrongful death, child abuse, and U.S. Tax Court cases. Approximately 25 years ago, Mr. Levin began litigating elder neglect and abuse cases. Since that time, Mr. Levin’s practice has evolved to focus on elder neglect and abuse, financial elder abuse, trust estate litigation, and Will contests. Mr. Levin has resolved numerous cases in court and binding arbitration, and has drafted winning appeals in his practice areas.
