FREE workshop and film screening
presented by Americans Against Abusive Probate Guardianship

Please join Dr. Sam Sugar – founder of AAAPG – for “Preventing Abuse and Protecting Rights.” This interactive community workshop for families and vicitms of guardianship abuse will feature national experts on a variety of topics, including:

  • Eileen Leslie, Forensic Accountant- “How to Present a Meaningful Complaint”
  • Tom Coleman, Spectrum Institute – “Real Guardianship Reform Requires Accountability”
  • Janet Phelan – “Researching Judges” (pre-recorded)

  • Rick Black – “Dealing with Government Agencies”
  • Greg Marsella, MD – “Psychotropic Weapons”
  • Terry Williams – “Due Process in the Probate Mafia”
  • Terri Kennedy – “Dealing with Unbearable Stress”

Following the workshop, AAAPG will present the Florida premiere of a disturbing new documentary, The Guardians. 

It is a revealing investigative documentary set in Las Vegas, Nevada that exposes allegations of corruption within the Nevada Guardianship and Family Court systems involving the legal kidnapping of elderly people. The film shines a light on a lucrative business that drains seniors’ life-savings and robs them of their freedoms.

Victims and their families are caught in a scheme that has allowed corrupt court-appointed guardians to take total control over their healthcare and financial decisions. Armed with court orders obtained under dubious circumstances, guardians are able to forcibly remove elderly wards from their homes, isolate them from their families and systematically empty their bank accounts.

In an unfolding saga that reaches to the top level of government, a growing number of Las Vegas victims come together to seek justice, restitution and freedom.  Through their fight, the film exposes the scope of the systemic abuse of some of the most vulnerable members of our society.

As our aging population is about to record the largest transfer of wealth in history, we must protect them and their families from those that have been using a broken system to take advantage.

For 40 years nothing and no one has stood in their way. Until now.

The seminar will begin at 2:00pm and run approximately 3 1/2 hours. The film screening will begin at 7:00pm and conclude at 9:00pm. Patrons may attend either or both events, and the Theatre lobby and auditorium will remain open during the break between the two.

The events are FREE and open to the public, but RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED. Please click the show time at right to make your free reservation via eventbrite.
