Steve Miller: Elyse Tyrell, Jared Shafer's Lawyer Appears on Verge of Tears After Being Confronted at Nevada Supreme Court Hearing

I had no intention of bringing anyone to tears.

A dozen people, including myself (Las Vegas Review-Journal photo of the back of my head), testified on Monday, August 17 before the Nevada Supreme Court Guardianship Commission empowered to investigate hundreds of cases of elder exploitation. To the dismay of at least two Commissioners, the hearing was covered by national media.

The witnesses told of more than thirty years of court sanctioned thievery at the hands of several local for-profit guardians and their crooked lawyers who have an obvious stranglehold on several Clark County Family Court judges and their appointed hearing master.

Elyse Tyrell
Elder law attorney Elyse Tyrell and Family Court Judge William Voy are appointed members of the Guardianship Commission, though many believe both have serious conflicts of interest.

During testimony, Commission member Tyrell, her law firm, Trent, Tyrell & Associates, and Commissioner/Family Court Judge Voy were named repeatedly in victim's testimony as being a part of the problem, not the solution. This claim was based on both Commissioners long term legal representation of for-profit guardian Jared E. Shafer.

Judge Voy
Voy, prior to being elected to the Family Court, reportedly represented Shafer in over fifty court cases, and Tyrell took over the highly profitable job of representing Shafer after Voy's election. Both have been asked to step down from the Commission, but both have so far refused.

Ironically, Tyrell and Voy's past and present client, Jared Shafer, is the poster boy for why the Commission was formed.

Shafer, his company Professional Fiduciary Services of Nevada, Inc. (PFSN), former PFSN guardian Patience Bristol who is currently serving 3 - 8 years in prison for exploiting PFSN wards, Current PFSN manager Amy Viggiano Deittrick, Wells Fargo Bank Trust Department, and several other Shafer abettors are currently being sued in U.S. Federal Court under RICO statutes by the family of the late Guadalupe Olvera whose estate was bled of over $430,000.00 while under the court sanctioned control of Shafer and his crew.

Neither Tyrell nor Shafer responded to requests for comment for this column.

Based on "Elder Law Attorney" Elyse Tyrell's on again - off again involvement, alleged improper receipt and dissemination of confidential information, and admitted conflict of interest in Mr. Olvera's case, the complaint below was filed on August 14, 2015 with the State Bar of Nevada.

Wonder what will happen now? Will they resign or attempt to explain themselves?
