The injury and loss of my father due to medical malpractice cut me to my core. Despite being wounded, I did all the right things. I desperately sought answers, called on police, visited the coroner, hired an attorney, and probated his Will. However, the occurrences of February 28, 2003, changed my life further, forever. The perpetrators were unaware of my background in the legal field. They never imagined I would understand the scheme sooner, rather than later - the scheme to steal my father's estate claim, along with my voice as his daughter, his Power of Attorney, Executrix, Successor Trustee and the only eye witness.
Upon witnessing a man in probate court begging to see his living mother, observing his vicious opposition and experiencing an attorney say to me on the courthouse steps, "Whatever it is they want, give it to them, because what they are about to do to you won't be worth it," I immediately turned on my heels, found the records room and started combing probate files to learn the details and origins of the perpetrators' operation. What I witnessed in one day was too smooth, too perfect to be a fluke.
I learned of the Ex Parte petition and order calculated to circumvent my father's Will and Trust, filed while I held his memorial. A cursory review of other probate cases illustrated that the probate court was essentially operating as a machine, handing out Ex Parte orders to seize control of estates, like candy. Many of the probate cases referenced a "G" case, which I would soon learn was a GUARDIANSHIP case. Guardianship proceedings and records were housed at another location, 11.8 miles away. Upon review of an equal number of guardianship files, it soon became apparent that an identical Ex Parte machine existed in the Las Vegas family courts. This time, the objective appeared to be seizure of living persons and their estates, immediate liquidation of all property interests and investment with their firms, without so much as a word to the targeted person(s) named in the documents.
The crimes being committed in Las Vegas are near perfect in design. Victims are helpless to articulate them, the police have refused to take reports for decades, the fraudulently obtained court orders, amounting to "secret" orders, appear valid on their faces and are afforded full faith and credit throughout the country, pursuant to the United States Constitution! This is no less than Madoff-sized fraud and the Godfather of the operation has taken his "hostile approach" to guardianship and probate matters abroad.

Please take The New Yorker article and circulate it in your neighborhoods and communities. Take it to your local news stations. Designate someone to take it to the FBI field office in your area. While the same crimes may be occurring in pockets all over the country, the sophistication of the Vegas operation is unprecedented. There may be someone in your town that eventually received notice as a relative or has nominated the perpetrators in Vegas to act, without understanding who they are and what they really do. The first Ex Parte Order suspends all Powers of Attorney. Wills and Trusts are routinely amended and/or ignored. This is not your individual burden. This must be handled by the Federal Government and Federal Law Enforcement.
I stumbled onto this matter as a scholar and a victim. No one was watching or digging. Someone had to, and that someone was me. Please share your stories and keep this topic alive. Let us combine to protect each other.
My prayers go out to those in Las Vegas who no longer wish to be there.
I love you, Daddy.
