GUARDIANS TAKE TOTAL CONTROL: ISOLATE, MEDICATE, LIQUIDATE: The Tragic End of Marvin Siegel’s Life

Leave a comment

FROM OUR APRIL 1, 2019 PRINTED EDITION:

by Lonnie Brennan

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“They killed him,” Marvin Siegel’s daughter Lisa Siegel Belanger wrote in a text. She followed up to explain that six years of round-the-clock captivity in his own home and in various medical facilities, together with forced drugging and morphine, lack of proper care and the ability for his family to interact with him and help with decisions, accelerated her father’s death.

As we previously reported in this paper through a multi-part series of articles, including a personal account by Lisa, six years ago her father was taken from his Boxford, Mass. home via ambulance at the direction of a visiting nurse, and  was shortly thereafter placed in a psychiatric facility, forced on drugs, and then, while in the facility, signed over control of his estate to what Lisa detailed as predatory lawyers. That list of “predators” is long, and despite many trips to court to fight them, the lawyers continued to prevail.

Yes, Sometimes It IS All About the Money

At the time of his taking, Mr. Siegel’s known assets exceeded $6 million. During the past six years, attorneys drew off more than $4 million in what they termed as caring for the senior. A large chunk of that money was spent on round-the-clock home health care. But the numbers included more, much more.

Indeed, a review of the finances showed certain attorneys drawing tens of thousands of dollars and more, quarterly from the estate, with some racking up more than $200,000 in billing, and at attorney rates over a wide range, including some at more than $450 per hour.

For their fees they answered e-mails from one another, paid Mr. Siegel’s bills, ensured that he had his trash removed, the utilities bills paid, grass mowed, repairs made, and all the normal things to keep a household going.

With the signing over of his estate, Mr. Siegel lost all control and was appointed a guardian and other lawyers who managed his affairs. He was force-drugged without his knowledge to keep him complacent, and he began a long, slow decline, according to multiple court documents and written and oral testimony and writings by some of his family members.

Massachusetts: HORRORS OF GUARDIANSHIP: Gov. Baker Turns a Blind Eye

Governor Baker’s Appointee to the Supreme Judicial Court Nominating Commission, Atty. Marsha V. Kazarosian Attempts to Silence Whistleblower

90-Year Old Marvin Siegel Remains Under 24/7 House Guard as High-Profile Lawyers Drain Millions from His Estate

by Broadside Staff

The Boston Broadside has previously detailed in a four-part series the systematic draining of the estate of 90-year-old Boxford resident Marvin Siegel by Governor Charlie Baker’s 2016 appointee, Attorney Marsha V. Kazarosian, and other lawyers.

During the past seven years, millions have been drained from the retiree’s estimated $9 million estate. He’s expected to be tapped out within a year.

Where has the money gone? To lawyers, lawyers, lawyers, elder service providers, and the like. Heck, the lawyers even charge one another to talk to each other and to send e-mails to one another, and then bill the estate. They also spend money on the daily care of Marvin, including their posted 24/7/365 “guards,” as Marvin’s daughter Lisa Siegel Belanger refers to his round-the-clock paid “caregivers,” whom she has detailed keep the senior isolated in his Boxford home. Lisa has also detailed how these “so-called medical providers have denied her dad his basic dignity: he can’t even use a cell phone to talk to his grandchildren!”

How did Marvin Siegel Get Grabbed?

TS Radio: Abolishing Probate: With Atty. Lisa Belanger

1 Comment

Call in # 917-388-4520

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Join Marti Oakley with Luanne Fleming and Robin Austin as we host Atty. Lisa Belanger from Massachusetts..

Lisa has just organized The People’s Center for Law & Justice and is working to end the probate/guardian system that is operating across the country.  Lisa’s organization will also work to counter bogus legislation which is actually intended to worsen the problems with professional, for-profit guardians and the ensuing plundering of estates.

We will also discuss the difference between public and private guardians…is there actually a difference?

A recent bill in Massachusetts offered by the former AG of Mass., would have given immunity to virtually every person involved in these guardianship scams.  Even those the former AG identified as having committed “ordinary negligence” would have been immune from prosecution under this bill.  Subsequent letters to the former AG aking him to define just exactly what ordinary negligence is, have gone unanswered.

We the people and Accountability of lawyers

Self-policing violates a basic principle of law. It will not work in a culture that does not tolerate “whistle blowers”. Honest lawyers seem unable to defend themselves against dishonest members of their profession. Lawyers control most of the government. In order to have a true democracy lawyers need to be accountable to “We the people”. David Arnold

Originally posted in Boston Broadside on line.

Part 1. “We the People”

The Constitution of the United States begins with “We the people of the United States,…”

Abraham Lincoln said “Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth.”

The United States of America is the best country in the world. The goal of many people in the rest of the world is to live in the United States. I always felt safe living in the United States of America because it is a democracy. The purpose of democracy is to prevent abuse by government.

I never worried about abuse of the power by government until 2012. Someone I loved very dearly was subjected to abuse by a professional guardian appointed by the Probate Court. I was also subjected to abuse. In practice, there was no recourse to the power of the guardian. There were no checks and balances. There was no accountability.

People who have been victims of abuse by court appointed guardians say this is not supposed to happen in a democracy like the United States. This kind of thing only happens in third world dictatorships. But it does happen. I know. I was a victim.

I kept asking myself how this could happen in a democracy. That question would not go away. It remained unanswered for 4 years. In 2016 the answer finally came to me out of the blue. The Probate Court is not a democratic institution. It is a dictatorship (see the December, 2017 issue #45 of Boston Broadside, page 3).

Unfortunately, that is not the end of the trail. There is an underlying problem that makes it very difficult to fix the problems with guardianship.

The French philosopher Montesquieu who advocated the idea of three branches of government also pointed out that the personnel of the three branches should not coincide. If the same people or entity control all the branches of government this negates the checks and balances.

The problem is not hidden. We all have the information needed to understand what is wrong. However, it took me a long time to see the truth that was lying in plain sight. Consider the following:

  1. The Judicial Branch is controlled entirely by lawyers.
  2. The Legislature, both state and federal, appears to be about 60 percent lawyers.
  3. The Office of the District Attorney which is under the Executive branch is controlled by lawyers.
  4. A disproportionate number of governors and presidents are lawyers.
