Emergency Hearing: December 8, 2010
After I read yet another story about guardianship abuse, this one of a 91-year-old woman who is being isolated from her daughter, I decided to do some research on the attorney, Christina Forbes of Washington, DC. Sure enough, I came across a story from a few years ago that I thought everyone might find rather interesting. When will these guardian attorneys have enough money in their pockets to make them stop stealing the assets of the elderly they took an oath to “protect”?
We arrived at DC Superior Court Probate Division on a cold, 32º morning, 15 minutes before the 10:30 a.m. start of the emergency hearing: me, my frail mother, and my mother’s caretaker, a 66-year-old woman from the Caribbean island of Trinidad named Veronica. I asked Veronica to accompany us so that she could testify to the fact that although she has spent 3 hours a day, 5 days a week caring for my mother at her home in Washington, D.C. for the past 2 years, she has never – never – seen conservator and con artist Paule Levadas visit my mother as she was required by law to do.
As we sat on a bench in the 2nd floor hallway outside Courtroom 47, I rehearsed in my head my statement as to why – contrary to the desires of the greedy court-appointed conservator – I should not be removed as my mother’s legal guardian. I hoped my words would be enough to convince Judge John M. Campbell to rule in my favor following the hearing. Little did I know this hearing was just for show. The decision to remove me – and restore Paule Levadas’ court-approved access to my mother’s meager Social Security income, to siphon-off for her own use – had already been approved.
My mother’s court-appointed attorney Darrell S. Parker (another insider to the scam) arrived momentarily, looking for Ms. Levadas. He then strutted his ample, well-fed frame through the courtroom doors as if he felt quite comfortable in an environment that intimidates laymen like myself. So, with mother and Veronica in tow, I followed him inside and sat my mother (his client) next to her attorney.
