"As an Assistant State Attorney, I spent years in the courtroom prosecuting those who took financial advantage of senior citizens. While it was incredibly rewarding to see justice served, I always wished I could have done something to help prevent the exploitation in the first place. Now, as an elder law attorney, I help my clients strategize & plan the best way to protect their assets from theft & fraud. I also help the victims & their families recover their assets, whether directly from the person who exploited them, or from the financial institutions that sometimes look the other way."
Kathryn Lewis Perrin earned her Bachelor’s degree in 2004 from the Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College of Florida Atlantic University, and her Juris Doctor from Stetson University College of Law, in 2008. While at Stetson, she served as the Articles & Symposia Editor for the Stetson Law Review. Ms. Perrin began her legal career as an associate at a large law firm, but quickly transitioned into criminal law, serving as an Assistant State Attorney in Palm Beach County, from 2009 to 2016.
From 2012 to 2016, Ms. Perrin was a member of the State Attorney’s Office White Collar Crime Unit, which handles complex financial theft & fraud cases. Ms. Perrin was also primarily responsible for handling crimes involving financial exploitation of the elderly. Among the indviduals she prosecuted were a man who stole $250,000 from an elderly victim with Alzheimers; a defendant who swindled dozens of senior citizens in a Ponzi scheme; and a caregiver who drained her client’s checking account.
While at the State Attorney’s Office, Ms. Perrin developed a special interest in the intersection of criminal, guardianship & probate matters. She continues to serve on the State Attorney’s Elder Abuse Task Force, which coordinates the efforts of prosecutors, law enforcement and other members of the community, to safeguard the elderly against both financial & physical abuse. She is available to help the victims of crime make reports to law enforcement and to represent their interests as victims in criminal cases.
Ms. Perrin has spoken about crimes against the elderly and white collar crimes to several organizations, including the Florida State Guardianship Association, the Elder Law Section of the Palm Beach County Bar Association, the Palm Beach County Economic Crimes Forum, and Palm Beach Atlantic University.
