Aligned White-collar Professionals Operating from the Same Playbook.
Predatory Estate Planning Attorneys often work in crony-aligned collusion networks. Premeditated elder exploitation crimes & networks often consist of the Estate Planner’s professional accomplices whom aid & abet the facilitation and cover-up of document or medical related exploitation, this can include family caregivers, Powers of Attorney drafting, Healthcare proxies, Doctor’s, Guardians, Conservators, Evaluating Psychologists, Law Enforcement, Wealth Managers, Accountants, Social Workers, and other attorneys acting as third party officers of the court and even Judges. The cross-referring professionals conceal materiel facts and cover for one another so they are rarely caught. Unfortunately for the communities where elder exploitation is rampant the good professional’s practices are tarnished by the bad actors. Below is just a small sampling of examples.
