* J.D. Candidate, Santa Clara School of Law, 2012. I would like to thank
the Volume 52 Editorial Board of the Santa Clara Law Review for their
diligence and dedication; Cynthia Thorp, Co-Chairperson of the Elder Abuse
Task Force of Santa Clara County, for her practical guidance; Professors Doris
Hawks and Stephanie Wildman, for providing the base upon which I built this
Comment; and my friends and family for their love and support. I owe special
thanks to my mother, Lien Nguyen, for her towering strength and relentless
faith in me.
