Stop the Plundering of Estates by Court-Appointed Lawyers in Unwarranted Court-Ordered Guardianships

The statewide system of appointing guardians to manage the finances and affairs of incapacitated people has created the opportunity for widespread corruption and needs to be radically overhauled

Why is this important?

Court-appointed guardianship does the exact opposite of what it says it does. It is plundering the estate of my mother without oversight. There are layers of court-appointed lawyers appointed as her guardian charging exorbitant fees that we are forced to pay because a judge says we must. It is a corrupt system that is legal. She has no access to her social security or retirement money.
