"Mary G. Sykes: SAVE from Court Sanctioned Guardianship Abuse"

Stop court sanctioned guardianship abuses of the elderly and disabled perpetrated by a cottage industry of attorneys who under the color of law, abuse, exploit, and deny senior citizens of their liberty, property, human and civil rights for the miscreants own person financial gain.

Why is this important?

What has happened to Mary G. Sykes, can happen to you. American society--and our judicial -- is teaching our children what is theirs is theirs and what is yours is theirs. Protecting your golden years is not a spectator sport. My mother, at 90, filed a petition for a protective order to stop her eldest daughter, Carolyn Toerpe, from financial exploitation and willful deprivation of her liberty, property, human and civil rights, and Toerpe hired attorney Peter Schmiedel (law firm of Fischel and Kahn in Chicago) and along with two guardian ad litems, attorneys Cynthia Farenga and Adam Stern, railroaded Mother into a guardianship (in 2009). Schmiedel, Stern, Farenga, and Judges Jane Louise Stuart and Maureen Connors have not only successfully sanctioned the laundering all of mothers (over 1 million dollars) estate (sold her home, too) but also, stolen and converted all of my assets and estate, which included a medical account of at least $210,000, to be used to pay attorney Peter Schmiedel and the law firm he's associated -- and not, as Toerpe claims, for mother's care!

My mother now 95, is unnessarily drugged, prevented from access to the Courts and cannot appeal, and isolated from all family and friends for almost 5 years. Mother invited me to visit her on June 22, 2013 where she was illegally confined at the Senior Living facility in Naperville, Ill and the first thing my mother said when she saw and heard my voice, was "I knew you didn't abandon me. I knew you'd come save me". Toerpe arrived 40 minutes later, and while facility staff watched, she overtly physically abused Mother, and told her that she'd "NEVER see" me again. What has happened to my mother and me can happen to you: court sanctioned abuses of the elderly and disabled must stop! Attorneys like Schmiedel, Stern, Farenga and Judges Connors and Stuart are dangerous because they are empowered by our judicial and agencies like the Illinois Attorney Registration and Discipline Commission. (The attorney of my mother choice, Kenneth Ditkowsky, her friend, was sanctioned for trying to help her!) Carolyn Toerpe was estranged from the family and like a thief in the night, stole everything my Mother and Father worked their entire lives for including her freedoms and liberties -- and then, having retained the right attorneys, (Fischel and Kahn law firm) and with two supporting Guardian ad Litem, pauperized me too. The next step in the Cottage Industry's plan, is to over or under medicate or suffocated my Mother: cremate her, although not Mother's advance directive. Yes, this sounds unbelievable, but it's the biggest scam against the elderly and disabled -- an American Holocaust. Please help save my Mother and in doing so, will save the lives of millions of elderly and disabled people!

Mary G. Sykes wrote letters to the Judge and anybody who would listen, but Judge Maureen Connors and Jane Louise Stuart turned a deaf ear:
