Our week of Protest Against Probate Abuse and Exploitation starts on September 26, 2017 in Palm Beach County Florida.

 Program Number 1

AAAPG’s The Truth About Adult Guardianship of the Elderly

 Americans Against Abusive Probate Guardianship (AAAPG) will host an informative public educational seminar on Tuesday September 26, 2017 to discuss what every American needs to know about senior guardian proceedings, followed by a Town Hall Meeting in which Palm Beach Officials will respond to audience questions about recent and ongoing Probate Court guardianship issues in Palm Beach County.

“Gone unchecked, a court appointed guardian of an elderly person can become abusive and exploitive very quickly,” said Dr. Sam Sugar, founder of AAAPG in Fort Lauderdale.

Dr. Sugar will conduct the opening seminar and moderate the Town Hall meeting that follows. The seminar aims to inform the elderly and their families of the financial and physical danger that can await them in probate court after filing an application for guardianship.

“When a petition for guardianship is filed in any probate court in the U.S., you are putting a loved one at risk of their life and flagging the government that your estate and inheritance are up for grabs,” Dr. Sugar said.

Specifically, the seminar will address the following  points:

·        ·         How Guardianships are supposed to work

·        ·         Understanding the risk factors for guardianships

·        ·         How guardianship can result in abuse and who profits from for profit guardianships

·        ·         Results of AAAPG national surveys of abusive guardianships

An open to the public Town Hall will follow. Scheduled panel members include:

·        ·         State Representative for District 91, Representative Emily Slosberg, Delray Florida

·        ·         Chief Investigator for Palm Beach for the State OPPG and Deputy Clerk of Court Anthony Palmieri

·        ·         Former President of the Florida Bar and Member of the Florida Judicial Qualifications Commission, Palm Beach Attorney Gregory Coleman

·        ·         Award winning investigative Journalist for the Palm Beach Post John Pacenti


The program will be held at Embassy Suites West Palm Beach,1601 Belvedere Road, in  West Palm Beach, Florida.

Seminar at 5 PM followed by Town Hall at 6:15 PM

Admission: Free

  1. Harry Scott Boggs // September 22, 2017 at 7:12 pm //

    It’s extremely likely that if my old car does not break down, I will attend both of these and sleep out in a state park to save money, if necessary. It’s been two years since my mother was murdered by her guardian and Cornerstone Hospice physician, so the chickens are slowly, but surely coming home to roost within the comfy confines of this musty nest of legal affairs.

  2. My heartfelt condolences go out to Mr.Boggs and all other casualties of the guardianship atrocities to which we are now or previously were subjected.

    Had my husband been allowed to live his life as he had planned to do (as specified in his Durable Power of Attorney, Healthcare Proxy, and Living Will) we would be celebrating our 60th wedding anniversary tomorrow on September 28th. However, because the Judge chose to put his wishes aside and supercede them (on July 1, 2015, the actual day the new “Laws” went into effect by the legislature) she put his life in the hands of her choice of guardian (not I, his wife/caregiver) and greedy bottom feeders, the world will never enjoy my husband’s magnificent singing voice again; and, his family and friends will forever miss him. I know full well the ordeal of being ‘set aside’ (with my same set of legal documents that were also superceded) and reduced to a welfare-reliant 3rd-class citizen with no rights whatsoever after it took the gang of “do-gooders” a full year to find 3 committee miscreants to declare me a “Ward of the state” so I am relegated to being on the outside with all the legal threats of being in violation of court orders for whatever I do. There has been no reporting on the nursing home “accident” my husband suffered on his first night at the facility his guardian put him in; and, his medical records have been denied to me, his next of kin. When his guardian put him into hospice a week later with no notification or discussion with me, his final two days of life were well calculated, down to the double dose of morphine he was given, which shut down his final breath because the guardian signed a DNR (do not resusitate) order and his IV fluids and oxygen were discontinued. His guardian wanted him cremated, but there was no medical examiner present, as Florida law mandates, before his body was turned over for “donation” (for research. So, there has been no “closure” for me, his wife, or anyone else. I do not know the final disposition of his body, where it was taken, what happened to his organs, and why his ashes were sent to his guardian’s home in Wisconsin. With no autopsy, there is no medical examiner’s report. In fact, there is nothing listed with the ME’s office because it “was not a usual case.” What does that mean?

    In closing, to Mr. Boggs and all others reading or sharing this response, I pledge to work diligently and tirelessly to correct the inequities of the demonic injustices of the Broken Trust of Guardianship.
