May 19, 2020 // 0 Comments

The difference between you/us and them I spend a lot of time talking to victims of probate abuse from all around the country. My heart goes out to them for the suffering they endure as a result of trying to do what they think is the right thing for an elderly parent. As is so often the case, the people I speak to have been attacked, maligned, excoriated, fined, sanctioned and generally worked over in probate hearings and litigation. By the time they reach out to someone like me, they have been [- more...]

Guardianship as a form of Terrorism

April 20, 2020 // 3 Comments

  I recently had the opportunity to attend a security seminar. As I listened to the security expert describe the intricacies of how we should prepare ourselves for the possibility of an attack on our community, I was struck by how predatory abusive guardianship is really very similar to a terror attack on families and individuals. I began to think on how we might be better prepared to prevent and/or react to such an attack ourselves either now or in the future if we could apply the same [- more...]

DUE PROCESS IN PROBATE GUARDIANSHIP—AN OXYMORON Civil Equity tribunals held in probate guardianship courts by (typically) elected administrative Judges have been under intense scrutiny in recent years.

Please Governor De Santis

An open letter to Governor Ron De Santis Can guardianship abuse be fixed in Florida  ? One of the goals of our organization from its inception was to bring public attention to the abuses so commonly seen in Guardianship and in particular in professional guardianships. The idea was that if enough people became educated and concerned that ultimately there would be political and governmental action to address the issue. That has begun to happen. Recently Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida proposed [- more...]

Broken systems One of the reasons that guardianship presents such a challenge to families who oppose it is the rapidity with which it is imposed on unsuspecting seniors and families as well as younger adults with disabilities.

Those proceedings can be initiated by almost anyone with or without proper [- more...]

September 20, 2019 // 10 Comments

  What is it about abusive guardianship that makes it so repulsive? Over the years we have documented and revealed how predators in probate equity courts across the country have taken advantage of the laws that are designed to protect the most vulnerable among us and use them to enrich themselves while committing atrocities against the very people they are sworn to protect. Listening to as many as four or five new stories every day on our hotline makes it difficult to step back and reflect [- more...]
