The Florida Attorney General’s Office received your correspondence regarding your concerns with attorney Roy Lustig and Judge Michael Genden in relation to a guardianship and criminal case involving Helen Stone and Barbara Stone.
We appreciate that you consider this office as a source of assistance; however, in Florida the state attorney in each judicial circuit prosecutes alleged violations of the criminal laws. The elected state attorneys operate independently and are not part of the Attorney General’s Office. Further, while our office is not generally involved in the prosecution of cases at the circuit level, by law the Attorney General’s Office represents the State of Florida in criminal cases on appeal. It would be, therefore, inappropriate to comment on a particular criminal case. You may find information about the role and function of the Attorney General on our website at http://myfloridalegal.com/pages.nsf/Main/F06F66DA272F37C885256CCB0051916F. Regarding this case, you may wish to contact the state attorney in the 11th Judicial Circuit to express your concerns:
The Honorable Katherine Fernandez Rundle
If there are safety concerns for the welfare of a senior citizen or vulnerable adult in Florida, please contact the local law enforcement authorities and the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) Abuse Hotline. The DCF operates the state’s Abuse Hotline which receives reports about abuse, neglect or exploitation of children, senior citizens and vulnerable adults (https://reportabuse.dcf.state.fl.us/). You may contact the Abuse Hotline at:
Florida Department of Children and Families
You may also wish to contact the Office of Public and Professional Guardians at:
Office of Public & Professional Guardians
In regard to your concerns about Mr. Lustig, the Florida Supreme Court has designated The Florida Bar as the agency responsible for reviewing grievances against attorneys licensed to practice in this state. For more information on attorney regulation and the grievance process, please visit https://www.floridabar.org/public/acap/ and https://www.floridabar.org/public/acap/assistance/ . The Florida Bar’s contact information is:

In regard to the judge’s decisions, as part of the executive branch of government, our office cannot supersede or circumvent the actions of the judicial branch. If you have a complaint about a judge’s conduct, please contact the Judicial Qualifications Commission (JQC), the independent agency created by the Florida Constitution to review certain kinds of complaints involving judicial conduct. The contact information is:
Judicial Qualifications Commission
Finally, because our office is not at liberty to give legal opinions to individuals, if you need legal guidance, again please consult a private attorney, The Florida Bar offers a Lawyer Referral Service toll-free at (800) 342-8011 or online at https://www.floridabar.org/public/lrs/.
Thank you for contacting Attorney General Bondi’s office. Please understand the Attorney General’s duties are prescribed by law.
PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO THIS E-MAIL. THIS ADDRESS IS FOR PROCESSING ONLY.
To contact this office please visit the Attorney General’s website at http://www.myfloridalegal.com and complete the on-line contact form. Again, thank you for contacting the Office of the Florida Attorney General.
