Warning to Seniors: Rich or Poor, You’re Worth a LOT to Lawyers, Courts, and Service Agencies!
by Lonnie Brennan
In our prior edition, we briefly outlined how retired Boxford
attorney Marvin Siegel had established a plethora of detailed estate
planning documentation with the intention of protecting his
approximately $9 million estate from predators, interlopers and other
Mr. Siegel failed.
He specifically failed to consider one important fact: At any time, a
gaggle of lawyers, with the aid of friendly Massachusetts judges, can
almost seamlessly have an elderly gentleman declared a ward of the
state, and swoop in and begin to draw off his assets.
We’ve collected quite a lot of documents since last month, with
details on just some of the billings of Attorneys Brian Cuffe, Marsha
Kazarosian, James Feld, and others. Billings of sometimes in excess of
$200,000 per year, and collectively resulting in the draining of
millions from the estate.
The beef: two of Mr. Siegel’s daughters – one a lawyer – were named
by Mr. Siegel to take over the custody of his estate in the event of
illness, but instead, were cast aside by the courts, and others were
given full control.
But this opening of the box and cataloguing of the contents was just
one of many measures allowed by the courts to place the assets of Mr.
Siegel in the control of court-appointed guardians for Mr. Siegel.
At press time, a further appeal by Mr. Siegel’s daughters on the
draining of their father’s accounts by court-appointed lawyers and
others, was denied.
Most interesting, Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly announced an award for
Kazarosian, complete with a video of her, alongside an article terming
the daughter’s appeals too confusing and wordy to comprehend.
The despicable actions inflicted on Mr. Siegel were not just directed
to draining his lifetime of accumulated wealth. In an upcoming issue
we’ll provide extensive details of how the state-appointees even
terminated Mr. Siegel’s regular doctors and caregivers … stay tuned. ¨
