What has happened to me is utterly amazing.  All I did was try to represent Gloria Sykes, the other attorneys cooked up a BOGUS and FALSE disqualification and the the ARDC came after ME!  They never investigated PETER SCHMEIDEL, CYNTHIA FARENGA OR ADAM STERN–KNOWN MISCREANTS IN PROBATE.  As a result, Mary Sykes was guardianized without out jurisdiction, her home sold for 20 cents on the dollar, she is stuck in Naperville and has not seen her younger daughter for years now.  $1 MILLION in gold and silver valuable coins have disappeared and the ARDC AND the Probate Court has blocked discovery at all turns.

No one is safe, not even my ARDC Tribunal or Hearing Board, which both consisted of 6 elderly gentlemen.  I have plenty of stories of elderly judges and lawyers–all who were connected and very powerful in their day, and now they have a feeding tube at one end and a diaper at the other, estates quickly drained, isolated from children and grandchildren for years, courtesy of big banking and favored attorneys (Belanger case, New York, Barbara Stone, Florida)

Now my clients –who are pro bono and lower middle class are left utterly without counsel.

Dominic Spera — in danger of being homeless AGAIN due to miscreant probate attorneys in Rockford.  GAL Rudy left him homeless eventhough he had $150,000 in joint accounts with his mother.  He was on the street from Jan. to May 2012, eating out of garbage cans despite he had his own accounts, joint accounts, etc.–she locked him out of everything and then turned her back on him.  A kindly Catholic Priest Father Jim got him to a shelter and then called me and I got him an allowance. As far as I know, Dominic has little or no allowance and a $800k estate has been depleted by Sharon Rudy, Judge Lisa Fabiano and GAL Peter Savitski. 

Alan Frake–currently selling home for 70 cents on dollar, and he is being illegally drugged and no one does anything.

Sophie and Ronald Reichert — in grave danger by OPG or Office of Public Guardian that constantly tells litigants “they must be Guardian” despite the fact relatives (a son) can serve as guaridian.  Case was railroaded and sealed.  Barbara Monaghan a beloved relative is not told what is going on by OPG–ever.  They have hounded and prosecuted the family with lies and deception.  POA’s and Trusts destroyed (these were done with an attorney) with a rubber stamp. Sophie Reichert is at risk and isolated from the family, she is weak from a surgery the family was never told about.  The prize to the OPG?  A $2 million property in Wrigleyville.

Barbara Stone — Mother in grave danger of death in Florida.  She is being drugged and isolated from her daughter.  Every time daughter complains about abuse, she is arrested for “interfering with the custody of a disabled person.”  In Jan. 2014 Mother Helen Stone was rushed to the hospital with dehydration, malnutrition, contusions, lacerations, pneumonia, failure to thrive.  What did the court do?  Judge Michael Genden incredibly handed back reports of abuse to the abuser.

Lyle Harrison — currently in jail in Moultrie County–for FILING COUNTERCLAIMS against Hardware State Bank.  That’s right a civil litigant has been imprisoned since mid December 2014 for filing a piece of paper reserving his rights.  He has no other counsel.

These are the cases I handle and all these people are at risk of death or harm.

The ARDC does not care.  The Illinois Supreme Court does not care.  IT IS MORE IMPORTANT FOR THESE ATTORNEYS TO MAKE MONEY than to have any opposition in court to their evil plans.

What do I make on these cases?  Pennies on the dollar!  What do the likes of Stern, Farenga, Schmeidel make? Nearly 100% of everything.  ubber stamped within minutes.  And in the Sykes case, they went after Mary’s wealth, Gloria, a family member’s wealth, and a $1 million home was sold for pennies and no fee petition filed.  The money was unaccounted for.  A safety box was drilled out illegally without a court order, all discovery quashed and never inventoried.

I report this on a blog, and what do they do?  Come after ME and Ken Ditkowsky, another honest attorney.

JEROME LARKIN Administrator or Chief of the ARDC has done this.  If a senior is being abused, in grave danger or about to die, if homes are being sold for pennies on the dollar, HE HANDS BACK THE REPORTS OF ABUSE TO THE ABUSER.

The ARDC does not file ethics reports.  Probate Attorneys do not file ethics reports.  The attorneys wheel and deal and go after any HONEST attorney that dares report the abuse.

It’s an utter disgrace.

Write to Jerome Larkin, personally deliver letters that he must not participate in the abuse, he has to STOP protecting attorneys that commit crimes while witch hunting the honest ones–DENISON, DITKOWSKY and AMU.

Client Confidentiality

In general, any lawyer or law firm you hire must hold all or your information in the strictest of confidence and cannot divulge it to anyone without your consent. Our attorneys and staff are trained to hold your information in confidence, whether you hire us or not. We do not need to sign a confidentiality agreement with you because Illinois State Law provides that a client can, at any time, claim attorney-client confidentiality and the attorney and staff are legally bound to comply with that law. However, the privilege belongs to the client, so if you publicly disclose the information, you automatically waive the privilege. If you tell it to someone who is NOT a lawyer or her or his staff, someone NOT your clergy person or a CPA or your spouse, you might also lose your privilege. An attorney client privilege should be absolute, and no other lawyer or even a judge in any courtroom or deposition should ask you to divulge what you have told an attorney in private. Please contact one of our attorneys if you have further questions or need additional information.

Even though I am suspended, I will hold everyone’s information in the strictest of confidence.  I do not publish on my blog without your permission–ever.  I will claim Reporter’s Privilege under Illinois Law–even if threatened with jail.  In fact, at the ARDC I claimed Reporter’s Privilege for Gloria so I did not have to turn over 15,000 of her proprietary emails over 4 years—despite threats to my law license, but I did it because I am honorable and trust worthy.

Unlike the attorneys that prosecute and persecute me–Larkin, Opryszek, Splitt, Smart, Leah Black–I have the highest ethics and morals and do not betray client confidences.
