Link below to KD’s Answer, Motion to Dismiss and Affirmative Defenses to the bogus ARDC complaint filed against him for merely calling for an investigation and emailing those that can investigate or help in that and posting to this blog! Imagine posting to a blog to get an investigation started is an ARDC complaint!
As you are probably aware, Ken Ditkowsky and I are so far the only Illinois lawyers to protect Mary G and publicly fight the grave injustices done to Mary G Sykes, a woman ripped out of her home by a relative she rarely visited, and now lives isolated in a remote suburb of Naperville. The daughter Gloria who cared for her mother admirably for the past 10 years–an arrangement well known in the family–has been evicted from her home, she was ordered (without a hearing or any due process or service) to stop working on her home to make it habitable after mold damage, then the court froze her $200,000 in Indiana so she is now homeless and penniless.
Why? So the other sister can sell both homes, put the money in a trust that she benefits from!
Watch the video links shown below, sign the petitions, let the world know that you will not stand for an Illinois grandma and American citizen to be abused like this. In the videos she knows what she wants. She wants to live at home until she passes, she wants Gloria to care for her and she wants her property divided equally between her daughters. She is NOT incompetent to that extent.
Kend Ditkowsky and I have been caught up in all of this because we have been working tirelessly on this blog and to inform others of this situation–and those attorneys who will churn fees at hundreds of dollars per hour–want us silenced. They apparently have a lot of clout in Probate and even with the ARDC.
Two complaints remain against myself and Ken Ditkowsky–mainly for publishing the truth about the situation on this blog and in emails, and also to call for an investigation of elder abuse. Apparently, when it’s the court and clout connected attorneys doing the abuse, it’s no longer abuse. And when you stand to be awarded with tens of thousands in attorneys fees, you get to loot what you want from the elderly.
Please read the attached Answer to the ARDC’s complaint and help us out.
From Ken Ditkowsky
And I would like to note (JMD) that if you follow the money trail, it leads directly to the Plenary Guardian, the GALS’s Adam Stern and Cynthia Farenga, and the Guardian’s attorney’s Harvey Waller and Peter Schmeidel/Dorothy Soehlig!
I have not received a dime from Gloria in years. I am doing this blog for free. Ken has tirelessly written emails, letters an d posts from this blog–all without pay!
It would appear that Mary G has been fleeced–of her home, about a million in gold coins numerous other relative can verify, as well as other property the family can and would verify if given a chance.
thanks for what you can do for Mary G, 93 years old and professionally abused.
Watch Mary G Sykes–a victim of elder abuse, probate abuse and financial abuse who was declared “incompetent” speak her mind clearly! Amazing footage of what the Illinois court considers “incompetence”!
Amazingly enough, she is supposed to be incompetent and her GAL’s Adam Stern GAL and Cynthia Farenga GAL have conveniently arranged a guardianship where her desires are NOT being carried out. She wants to live at home and have her daughter Gloria care for her in Mary’s home until she dies. Carolyn Toerpe had her execute a will where once Mary’s home is sold the proceeds are put in Trust and Carolyn Toerpe takes it all upon Mary’s death. Now Carolyn Toerpe has had Mary declared incompetent and is seeking to have both Mary’s home and Gloria’s home sold and the proceeds put in Carolyn’s trust. All of this has been done under the authority of the Probate Court of Cook County and GAL’s Cynthia Farenga Attorney and Adam Stern, Attorney. This proves that evil never sleeps.

Thank you for any bit of help you can give her!
Although this is obvious, no person in this blog has been accused of any wrongdoing, crime or even arrested unless stated otherwise from a website reporting actual arrests and convictions. We are stating our opinions and we have the right to do this. Only the particular author is responsible for his or her content. (So don’t blame me if you dislike some posts from someone else. This site is newsworthy because it is picked up automatically by many other blogs and is therefore protected by the First Amendment of the US Constitution and the Illinois State Constitution and violations will be taken seriously with charges under the Illinois Citizens Participation Act. We ARE participating in government here–we are lawyers trying to make a difference to make things better for grandma and grandpa. We don’t care how much money you’re making–directly or indirectly from Probate or a nursing home or home health care wired-in business. Do yourself a favor and get a different job, it’s not worth it. And if you’re someone filing ARDC complaints against this blog, we are all exercising our rights to disseminate important news to protect the rights of the elderly and respect their wishes. Again, go get another job–it’s not worth it.
PS – This blog is primarily for entertainment purposes only and please don’t file any pleadings or documents in court without checking with the sources for errors. My rate to review is $300 per hour. Sorry, but portions of this blog have to be entertaining so we can get the word out. There is most certainly a great deal of (stinging) truth in it, esp. for the GAL’s, the probate court and a society that ignores (thereby condoning) the sleazy world of probate, and in particular the 18th floor of the Daley Center in Chicago, but everyone needs to understand, these are not pleadings, there is no Motion, Response and Reply set by any court, together with extended legal argument recorded by a court reporter and subject to a Motion to Reconsider if errors or new evidence is found. So don’t take it that way. Like a good reporter, do your own due diligence and check with the sources first. Honestly, I have to explain blogs to attorneys? Have they no life? Do they not know how to email me or use the “comments” section at all?
And now JoAnne and Ken, you have me as a 3rd lawyer standing with you–fighting in Massachusetts. . . my father’s own attorney is the the ring leader–and pounding her chest with both fists in support of these court appointed thieves–as they throw ludicrist threats at me for speaking the truth and exposing their reprehensible conduct.
On April 25, the guardian and conservator all of a sudden now want to obtain counsel for themselves and filed a motion for the judge to allow this to be paid directly from my dad’s estate!!
And in the words of my kids, I shall hold hands like a chain with you both and yell: “Red Rover, Red Rover, send **** right over” as I will not rest until they are criminally investigated.
Thanks, Lisa, I really appreciate your support. And Mary G does and so does Gloria!
