Guardianship Abuse – Protectors continue to fail seniors with horrific victimization

Here’s what you can do now to avoid becoming a victim later. Ann Brenoff If you are elderly and haven’t legally arranged for someone to take care of things for you should you become incapacitated, a state court can give a total stranger complete control over your life savings, your home and even which medicines you are given.

Reprobate in Probate?

  When I first was aghast at the sewage of snakes I found myself in, it was like a bad dream or the most terrifying surreal John Grisham book I have ever imagined. I have never had to watch anyone die as I begged and made a “well established record of throwing myself on the mercy of the court” (the AAL who condemned a woman to death said 9 days before as I begged through 3 TROS, injunctions, 3 motions to remove the guardian and 3 motions for jury trial that were ignored) as I watched just that.

These people died in the protection of the guardianship program, designed to protect. They were protected from medical care, an education at the lowest federal standard, neglected in criminal ways, and kept from doctors who could save their lives. They were handed over to […]
