Do as I say, not as I do……………………..

One of the most amazing things about all the miscreants in probate–attys and judges writing articles, appearing as “renowned” speakers, gaining accolades for the “important work in protecting the elderly and disabled” — is that they also engage in some of the worst forms of probate abuse (acting without jurisdiction, improper or no service up on the disabled person, etc.) but at the same time write some pretty darned good articles on the evils of elderly abuse and exploitation.

Read on for one of these.  This article is apparently written by an atty miscreant who has isolated and drugged atty Lisa Belanger’s father from his two beloved daughters and several grandchildren who have not seen him for a long, long time, and all over $9 million! (This is the same case where the Plenary Guardian told the court that all that money would be gone in 7 or so years due to their fees–yikes). How is this two-faced attitude possible (and in the words of Abraham Lincoln who was often accused of being two-faced, “if I really were two faced, do you really think I’d be using this one?”)

From Ken Ditkowsky:

Dear Lisa;

The modern credo is:  ‘do what I say not what I do!’      You should not be surprised when you read an article that is important and should be posted on every blog for the information that it provides.    Indeed, no one should be surprised when the leading advocates of honor, honesty, openness, candor, and the ‘American way’ are those who honor the principles the least.     Indeed, in too many instances ‘church’ leaders are the patrons of the worst corruption.    Illinois has two former governors sitting in jail right now!    A short while ago 17 Circuit Court of Cook County judges went to jail.    Criminal Tony Resko had strange relationships with republicans and democrats alike.   
 One well known politico purchased a real estate lot adjacent to his home for a bargain price–after he announced publicly he wanted it, but not for $600,000 so someone “happened” to come into possession of it not much later and sold it to him for $300,000.     If you or I engaged in the very same activity we would have gone to jail.     The media was as silent on the nefarious transaction as they are silent on the elder abuse/financial exploitation scandal.      The wife of this member of the political class was hired by a major university to what has been described as a make work job.    When she left the job, this important job was left vacant!
As Pogo said:   “we have met the enemy and it is me!”      
This is why we have to insist on HONEST  complete and comprehensive investigations of these elder abuse cases.     This is why the ‘wise words’ of Ms. Cukier should be posted by all the blogs – she provides important information and a window into the reason that Democracy is not a spectator sport.   Elder abuse is detailed in the Bible along with political corruption.

Subject: Weston attorney Lisa Cukier: Beware of financial exploitation – Wayland, MA – Wicked Local Wayland

this is the atty for BNY mellon who has exploited my father– and she writes this article!!

Article on “How to Prevent Elder Exploitation” by a miscreant atty!

From Joanne;

Amazingly, it’s not a bad article.  To watch out for signs of exploitation, to keep your items safe, to perhaps think about putting your wealth in a trust because it’s harder to break a trust.  Lots of good information.

You will note she never says “and if I and another non-family member get ahold of your estate, we can deplete $9 million in 3 to 4 years.”

Hmmm, she forgot that one.  And also the warning that if LC finds out you might switch your $9 million from Melon Bank NYC to another bank she will help MB NYC remove you as guardian, get a non family member to function as guardian to keep those assets where they belong–until she and another CPA get enough fees out of the estate, that is.

She never explains how to avoid that one!

From Mass. atty Lisa Belanger on the state of her case (and also corrections to the above post):

technical corrections to your posting re Ms. Cukier:  the calculation for depletion was 7.4 years; the person who 
specifically informed the judge of that calculation was Attorney Maxa Berid, General counsel for Elder Services of 
Merrimack Valley, Inc--on behalf of the guardian.

Brian Nagle was the financial advisor from BNY Mellon, who testified in court that he personally called Attorney Ed 
Tarlow and asked Attorney Tarlow to go see my Father while under involuntary commitment to the psychiatric facility, 
Whitter Pavilion.  Attorneys Tarlow and Watson, never having my Father ever as a client--went in hand to their very 
first "meeting" with Father at the Whitter Hospital, the very next day after speaking with Brian Nagle.  Attorneys 
Tarlow and Watson brought with them  an already drafted Revocation of Durable Power of Attorney and a new Power of 
Attorney, designating Father's CPA (who has an already existing relationship with Mr. Nagle).

Attorney DeNapoli was the mouthpiece for Attorneys Tarlow and Watson in court.

Needless to say, you can only imagine the unconscionable proportions of the documents they drafted.  Both BNY Mellon 
and Attorney Tarlow were given complete control--specifically stating they did not need to apprise Father before 
doing anything; as well as, Attorney Tarlow's law office being directly paid from Father's BNY Mellon account.  The 
documents were so self-dealing that they made it so Attorney Tarlow's Office could not be terminated by CPA and that 
CPA could not use anybody else other than BNY Mellon.  They made CPA Father's health care proxy!!

2 days prior to Father being discharged from Whittier Pavilion--at a court hearing,  the Probate Judge indicated 
that Father was "competent" when signing those documents drafted by Attorney Trlow and watson.  

Because of issues raised whether Father's original DPOA executed in 2003 also served as a valid, Health Care Proxy, 
Father affirmed his prior wishes again that he wanted me as his health care proxy.  Father did so at the Whittier 
Pavilion, with Whittier Pavillion's staff as witnesses to this affirmed Health Care Proxy and Father's awareness of 
what he was signing--and his outward expressed wishes.
When Father personally called Attorney Tarlow to fire him--which Father's current counsel filed an Affidavit stating 
that Father never wanted or asked for Attorney  Tarlow's legal services and that Father was deceived as to what he 
was signing, Attorney Tarlow filed a petition with the court stating that Father was not competent to fire him!

The coup de gras was that Attorney Tarlow filed a motion to be paid approximated $108,000 for legal services-- the 
Probate Judge reduced it to $6,500.  Attorney Tarlow filed a motion for reconsideration!!  

from Lisa Belanger and thanks for the corrections.
