May 17, 2015 // 0 Comments

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?

White Paper: What the hell is incapacity anyway?

May 4, 2015 // 0 Comments

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...]

Too much, too many – a new AAAPG White Paper

April 28, 2015 // 0 Comments

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...]

April 26, 2015 // 0 Comments

AAAPG Founder Dr. Sam Sugar has just released a new White Paper, “A New and Disgusting Page from the Ever-growing Guardian Abuse Playbook,” discussing the tactic of having a Ward’s home condemned in order to evict family members not (yet) under court-ordered Guardianship from the Ward’s home so the Court can legally seize the Ward’s home and sell it through a “straw man” sale.

What is Guardianship?

April 2, 2015 // 0 Comments

When she was taken from us, her home given away, her possessions sold off, and even her name changed, I was dumbfounded. I do [- more...]

Why Does Guardianship Exist?

April 2, 2015 // 0 Comments

Answer: Money, lots of money. The concept of guardianship, parens patriae, originated centuries ago in England. It gave the government the authority to take responsibility for people who were deemed insane. Beginning in the 1980s in America statutes evil which attempted to deal with individuals who were either homeless or otherwise totally unable to care for themselves and who posed the threat of either violence or just an eyesore in a community. In the late 1980s professional guardianship [- more...]

How Do People Just Like Me Get Victimized?

“THE PRIME PURPOSE OF ANY GOVERNMENT IS TO PROTECT ITS CITIZENS” Imagine that you or a loved one is about to have all their precious civil rights involuntarily and forcefully seized in court by probate guardians as the latest “Ward of the State”.

What do you mean by abuse?

April 2, 2015 // 0 Comments

Probate abuse takes a number of forms. The original sin of probate abuse is to claim that an individual who does not need probate protection is incapacitated in some way. Once that request is in front of the judge along with the hysterical pleadings of a hired gun lawyer that there’s danger of an imminent nature to the Ward, the system is designed to nearly guarantee that he emergency measures including an emergency temporary guardianship will ensue and that he perfunctory examinations by [- more...]
