***FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE***
Fame, fortune, addiction. The fortune part is what makes Danny Tate prisoner of a Tennessee conservatorship.
Danny Tate, successful rock musician and composer, is forced to fight a formidable team, led by his own brother; a team seeking permanent control of all aspects of his life—his finances, in particular. The motives of the entire team against Danny Tate, including attorneys, mental health professionals and even a Tennessee judge, are being called into question.
Nashville, TN, February 11, 2010 When Danny Tate relapsed in 2007 after eighteen years of sobriety, his world unraveled in typical fashion. During the spiral, he called on his older brother, David, for short term assistance. But, that regrettable request opened a door, and David Tate stepped through. That door is the door that swings open to conservators in Tennessee who might wish for any reason, altruistic or otherwise, to wrangle full control of another’s assets and life.
These days, Danny Tate cannot enter into business contracts, access his hard earned money, or even write a check. He has been rendered helpless to rebuild his life, a life that once included lucrative deals in the music industry. Though Danny Tate is back to managing his addictive tendencies just as he did for eighteen years prior to 2007, his fight to regain control of what is left of his assets and his life consumes his days.
"An out-of-control probate court rendered a conservatorship on my life that has wrought nothing but personal, professional and financial ruin to the benefit of probate attorneys who prey on the unsuspecting,” says Tate. “Many are victimized by conservatorships all across our country. My hope is my case will shed light on this shadowy corner of the law.”
Beyond his personal battle, Danny Tate vows to change Tennessee laws related to conservatorship abuse. Without money, the freedom to act in his own behalf, or, indeed, a place to always stay, he wages war from Nashville as only a resourceful person with virtually no resources can--through the help of friends and the press.
