Families demand probate reform


by Athena Roe, J.D.

“If we desire respect for the law, we must first make the law respectable.”

–The Honorable Louis D. Brandeis

The dangers facing a largely unsuspecting public looms large as families find their assets and civil liberties being high jacked and trampled by the legal industry via probate courts. Historically probate courts were specialized courts that handled the administration of estates, ensuring that the decedent’s wishes were carried out.Athena-Roe-photo

Today, probate courts have become venues for instant liquidation of assets, pillaging, legal abuse and other atrocities. Probate lawyers work with banks and realtors and are quick to jump in the game. Beneficiaries are denied due process rights and are threatened and harassed as their inheritance is depleted.

All too often there are bribes to public officials and law enforcement “looks the other way.” Lawyers devise schemes to defraud estates and others sell off property to their groups of cronies for pennies on the dollar. Families are destroyed, estates pillaged, inheritance depleted, careers shattered, as protracted litigation bankrupts the brightest and the best. Just ask the forty families who came forward to share their “horror stories of probate” at the state Capitol in July 2015.

This dirty little secret comes as a surprise to vulnerable family members facing the loss. Although public awareness is slowly growing, resistance to change plagues the industry. According to financial expert Juliette Fairley probate is big business topping nearly $41 trillion annually, double the energy industry.

For those of us who have legally abused by court appointed and estate lawyers experienced threats, corruption, forced to sign non-disclosure agreements to conceal the lawyers schemes and fraud, legal fee churning, and other abuses, life is never the same. New media websites like the Estate of Denial, F.A.C.E.U.S. (Denver), the National Association to Stop Guardian Abuse, and HAR Justice’s, “The Economic Rape of America” along with online radio programs have done their part to “highlight” the issue, yet this ugly reality persists.

Genevieve Bush lost her husband to a stroke in June 2004, what was to follow his death was nothing she could have ever prepared herself for, although she tried she has now become the victim of guardianship abuse.

In 2005 my mom removed the POA my brothers obtained in 2004 having both parents sign estate plans and wills they wrote and assigned themselves after my father’s stroke. Mom sued the brothers for return of monies they moved to themselves in 2007. The brothers disappearing out of our lives after winning the 2007 suit then returned at the end of 2009 filing a lawsuit on both mom and me to obtain guardianship over mom. The court used this petition in its own wish to mend a broken family by awarding guardianship to myself and back to the sons mom removed Through now over seven years of non stop court hearings during which the court in 2011 stripped my mom of all her rights she has now been taken from her home and held in a facility since May 18th without a hearing. The Department of Aging claimed due to conflicts arising in moms care, was in danger and had to be removed from her home.

Since being removed mom has been injured in the facility, she has been diminished, isolated and restricted from walking and even going outside. The Emergency involuntary commitment hearing has been scheduled for August 24th.. There are also other court hearings and filings surrounding this guardianship still active in others courts not yet finalized.

Guardianship Gulag: Elder Abuse Falsely Confines Woman


By Gerald Boland


When Gerald Boland and Mary Jane Snell complain to hospital MEMORIAL MEDICAL CENTER (MMC), Las Cruces about accommodations and care; MMC’s alleged retaliation is to maliciously petition (THIRD JUDICIAL DISTRICT COURT) for guardianship! Guardian’s Sandy Meyer and Alaina Johnson (dba ADVOCATE SERVICES OF LAS CRUCES, LLC) immediately take dictatorial control to permanently separate-isolate Mary from Gerald.

Hospital MMC misuses Gerald’s information about Mary’s fear (phobia-panic) of medical scene as a risk-management ploy to divert attention away from negligence allegations by Mary and Gerald. MMC hires a cadre to falsely diagnose Mary incapacitated, appoint guardians, and commit victim to nursing home where they sadistically, knowingly, induce sustained mental-emotional-panic, trauma, and deep-deep-depression, crying, and forced separation!

Mary asked the (unnecessary) appointed guardian Sandy Meyer, “why are you doing this to me, what did I ever do to you?” A logical woman’s question, being abruptly swept away to a nursing home!

Sagecrest Nursing & Rehab disregards Mary’s reported fall on January 31, 2015, guardians disrespect Mary with indifference to her strongly spoken desire to be released to come home and resume life. Guardian’s indifference, court’s indifference, Guardian ad Litem’s indifference, court visitor’s indifference and psychologist’s indifference weakens Mary by design.

Elder abuse, false diagnosis, hypnotic-psychotropic medications that double mortality and can induce a cardiac-arrest, and false confinement that deliberately traumatize Mary, continues since January 21, 2015! Mary is competent at home and elsewhere, only meds for hypertension and allergies, just scared-panicked around doctors, hospitals, and nursing homes. More

Guest: Carole Herman

Website: http://www.4fate.org/html/about_fate.html

After a three-year uphill battle with apathetic officials, files that mysteriously disappeared, several closures of her Aunt’s case with no action, and a pattern of stonewalling by state agencies created to protect patients from abuse and poor care, two things happened: The district administrator of the agency that licensed and monitored nursing homes was fired and Carole Herman, who fought the system for three years, founded FATE, Foundation Aiding The Elderly.

Carole protects the weak, fights the powerful, demands government do its job and doctor’s to fulfill the Hippocratic Oath.

In October 2001 Carole was a Volunteer Spirit Award winner receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award for her work with FATE on behalf of the elderly and in February 2002 Carole was presented with a Resolution from the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors for “her dedication and care for the elderly of our community.”

Today, FATE has affiliated organizations and colleagues fighting elderly patient’s rights in Texas, Kansas, Ohio, Tennessee, Illinois, Nebraska, Oklahoma and South Carolina. FATE has helped families all over the country. Civil actions have been filed on behalf of patients and their families. And the movement to illuminate and reverse the all-too-common incidents of abuse such as neglect, psychiatric drugging and criminal assaults of the elderly is growing.

FATE fulfills a vital and increasing need of providing direct action advocacy and education that will ensure that care is received with the dignity that everyone deserves.

The BAR Associations: Modern day grifters


strip bannernew-logo25Marti Oakley


This is no different than if bank robbers formed a union and then voted to give themselves immunity from prosecution, based on the idea that without immunity they might be afraid to rob any more banks.


To [grift] is to obtain money or other assets through swindle or fraud. That10468201_687314554677465_9114756285200928886_n brief definition accurately describes what is practiced routinely by members of the BAR Associations across the country. And no where is it more prevalent than it is with regards to the insidious guardianship/conservatorship venues.

More money is stolen from the disabled, children and seniors ,conserved and/or guardianized, than can actually be calculated and much of that theft is going directly into the accounts of lawyers who use the probate and family courts as personal ATM machines.

Hiding behind self-protecting statutes and codes they themselves constructed through various state BAR Associations, and while our state legislators turned a blind eye, the trafficking of the disabled, children and seniors with assets, goes on unabated. All of it facilitated by specially constructed statutes that recognize no wrong doing by attorney’s or judges, much less by the professional vultures euphemistically called “guardians”. More

Medicide: Trafficking the Elderly and the Use of Neuroleptics to Cause Dementia and Early Death


strip bannernew-logo25Marti Oakley _________________________________________________

“This arrangement will terminate upon your death which will most likely occur right about the time your estate has been bled dry of every penny. If an autopsy was performed at this point with the necessary tox screens, there would no doubt be an unexplainable overload of neuroleptic drugs in what was left of your system. Drugs that your estate, medicare and medicaid will be billed for long after you take your last breath. Only a tox will never be done, in any event.”


Over 60? Got assets? You could be the next victim of a predatory guardian10252043_631709193589576_7022154908430043279_n and a cadre of attorney’s, APS agents, social services agents, all looking to fill their quarterly quota’s or their personal bank accounts. Your crime? Aging with assets! And they want them!

While there is a concerted effort to convince the public that family or friends are abusing and exploiting an elderly person, the fact is that 3-5 billion is estimated to be stolen from seniors via professional fiduciary’s and those they work with, every year. These people are strangers to the family and the victim and their only real interest is availing themselves of as much of the estate as possible in as short amount of time as possible.

Every effort is made to make sure the public believes that in these instances of involuntary guardianship, no family member was willing to accept the care of the elder victim. This might be true in some cases, but for most it is the refusal of the probate judge to allow a family member to assume this position. After all, if a family member is guardian, the professional predator is not able to access the assets.
