Prescott Cole Named California Lawyer Attorney of the Year for Elder Law

Prescott Cole, CANHR’s Senior Staff Attorney, was selected by California Lawyer Magazine as a 2010 Clay Award winner and Attorney of the Year. Prescott was honored in the category of Elder Law for spearheading AB 329 (Feuer), which established new protections for seniors against reverse mortgage predators (see “New Protections for Reverse Mortgage Borrowers” in the December 2009 Network News). Those of you who know Prescott also know his relentless advocacy for elder abuse protections that has resulted in many successes on the state and national level. We are proud of Prescott and all he has done, not just in 2009, but throughout the last 14 years with CANHR.
