Paul Greenwood has been a lawyer for over 40 years both in United Kingdom and since 1991 in San Diego. During this presentation Paul will draw upon his experiences as head of the San Diego DA’s Elder Abuse Prosecution Unit from 1996 to 2018 to describe various forms of elder abuse; and he will provide some tips on early recognition and when such incidents should be viewed as crimes rather than “just civil matters.”

About our speaker:

Newly retired Deputy District Attorney Paul Greenwood was a solicitor in England for 13 years. After relocating to San Diego in 1991 he passed the California Bar and joined the DA’s office in 1993. For twenty two years Paul headed up the Elder Abuse Prosecution Unit at the San Diego DA’s Office. In 1999 California Lawyer magazine named Paul as one of their top 20 lawyers of the year in recognition of his pioneering efforts to pursue justice on behalf of senior citizens.

He has prosecuted over 750 felony cases of both physical, sexual, emotional and financial elder abuse. He has also prosecuted ten murder cases, including one death penalty case.

In March 2018 Paul retired from the San Diego DA’s office to concentrate on sharing lessons learned from his elder abuse prosecutions with a wider audience. In October 2018 he was given a lifetime achievement award by his former office.

Paul now spends much of his post retirement time consulting on elder abuse cases and providing trainings to law enforcement and Adult Protective Services agencies across the country and internationally. He is also involved as the criminal justice board member of National Adult Protective Services Association.

In 2021 Paul formed his own legal corporation, Greenwood Law Corp in order to develop a two – pronged mission of providing trainings for law enforcement and offering his experience as a consultant/expert witness in elder abuse civil and criminal litigation. Paul earned his law degree [LL.B Hons] at Leeds University Yorkshire UK in 1973. He passed the UK Barrister Bar Finals in 1978; and then the UK Solicitor Professional Exams in 1981 when he was admitted to the Supreme Court of England & Wales as a solicitor.

In 1991 Paul passed the California Bar and was admitted to the State Bar of California as an attorney in December 1991.
