Guardianships and the Elderly: The Perfect Crime by Dr. Sam Sugar, Founder of Americans Against Abusive Probate Guardianship #AAAPG and who lives right here in #SouthFlorida. From the book's description...
"Imagine a system of justice in this country that strips its citizens of their Constitutional rights, voids their existing legal documents, gives others the right to spend their money and sell their assets, isolates them, and has the ability to limit the time they can spend with their loved ones.
