Group Homes

Your New York Group Home Attorneys

A group home can be a viable solution to the specific living needs of an individual lacking full mental competence. In many cases, group homes offer stability and supervision that such an individual would be unable to maintain on his or her own. As in any situation in which one is under the administration of another, however, at times abuse and neglect can occur. Because many residents of group homes possess some degree of mental deficiency, recognizing abuse can be difficult. If you suspect that a loved one has been exposed to neglect or abuse at a group home, the Westchester attorneys at the Law Offices of Thomas L. Gallivan, PLLC are ready to assist.

Client Reviews
Last year I was injured in an accident, and for the first time, needed the advice of an attorney regarding how to proceed. I was referred to Thomas Gallivan through a family member who is a lawyer in Massachusetts. I am beyond pleased with how Thomas handled my case. He was knowledgeable, professional, and although the case was not as straightforward as some, he used every resource to ensure a positive outcome. Thomas communicated with me regularly and I felt completely informed and confident in his ability. He expertly negotiated a fair settlement that I was very happy with. The entire experience was extremely positive, during a stressful time for me. Thank you Thomas. Melanie
My mom was the victim of nursing home neglect/abuse. I retained Tom and he provided great representation in a professional, courteous fashion. He made a very uncomfortable ordeal bearable. I would highly recommend his services to anyone in need of sound guidance and professional representation. Paul D.
