Opinion: Nobody likes Guardianship

June 2, 2015

Opinion: Nobody likes Guardianship During my recent appearance on NPR-WLRN in Miami an individual named Steve who claimed to be the past president of the Florida State Guardianship Association called in to comment on the program that was devoted to the recent changes in Florida law as a result of the passage of Senate Bill five, AAAPG’s first major legislation success. He and another caller who claimed to be a guardian as well were bemoaning the fact that legislation is making it harder for [- more...]

White paper: Keeping up with those crafty guardians

May 29, 2015

It hasn’t been easy for those abusive guardians. Think about all the work they have to do to rape an estate, isolate award from his family, make sure doctors appropriately poison their wards with atypical anti-psychotics so they become drooling vegetables unable to complain, pushing endless litigation against family members and making it all look just so clean and simple and legal! Guardians have to be very clever and crafty, so we’d like to report on some of the most incredible [- more...]

Whitepaper: The Definition of Barratry

May 28, 2015

The Definition of Barratry bar·ra·try ?bar?tr?/ noun noun: barratry 1. archaic: fraud or gross negligence of a ship’s master or crew at the expense of its owners or users. 2. Law: vexatious litigation or incitement to it. 3. historical: trade in the sale of church or state appointments. At AAAPG, we have witnessed incredible, unending, systematic perversion of probate laws by greed driven for-profit guardians and lawyers who greatly profit from that cruel perversion. We have developed [- more...]

White paper: The Duplicity of Bar Associations

May 18, 2015

If only the victims in guardianship had a tiny fraction of the due process that judges and lawyers enjoy, what a different world it would be. As our research has shown time and again, innocent individuals caught up in the flytrap of for-profit guardianship do not have the benefit of due process nor do they have the protection of the civil rights guaranteed to each of us by our Constitution. They are dead in the law and there is no one to protect them. Perhaps then we should all consider [- more...]

White paper: How it goes down in Texas

May 17, 2015

How many probate attorneys, including those in the REPTL (Real Estate Probate Trust Lawyers) Section of the State Bar of Texas, donate to election campaigns of legislators; How many to judges? While we do not know how many attorneys, or how much money is donated, we do know why. This white paper by AAAPG exposes the circle of probate judges, the lawyers who practice in front of probate courts, the creation of statutorily-mandated management trusts to hold the ward’s seized assets, and the [- more...]

White Paper: What the hell is incapacity anyway?

May 4, 2015

May 4, 2015 What the hell is incapacity anyway? “The typical Ward has fewer rights than the typical convicted felon. It is in one short sentence… The most punitive civil penalty that can be levied against an American citizen with the exception of the death penalty.” ~ The late US Representative Claude Pepper…. But when it comes to locking you down permanently in a life sentence of guardianship, the court has to at least go through the motions of proving (if only to itself) that [- more...]

White Paper: Guardianship Dollars – Follow the money

May 4, 2015

May 3, 2015 Guardianship Dollars: “Follow the money”  – Huge numbers of older Americans are trapped in Guardianships which impoverish them under color of Law—as many as 100,000 of them Florida alone. Where does their money go? The following is a brief fiscal examination of guardianship that “follows the money”. You can read this White Paper here. You can see a list of all of AAAPG’s White Papers [- more...]

Too much, too many – a new AAAPG White Paper

April 28, 2015

The new AAAPG White paper Too Much, Too Many discusses the explosive growth in the number of Guardians, and therefore the number of Wards, in the last decade. Contrast the explosive growth in guardians with the lackluster employment opportunities awaiting newly-minted lawyers, just out of law school. Instead of amassing hundreds of thousands of dollars of loans to get a law degree and maybe earn $160,000 a year as a starting salary, perhaps law school students should have considered becoming [- more...]
