Gee I hope that West Palm Florida Attorney Alan Rose is Next, and Marc Manceri, Steve Lessne of Gunster, Brian O'Connell and Ashley Crispin, Diana Lewis and the Whole Gang of Attorneys involved in the Estate of Simon Bernstein and Estate of Shirley Bernstein in Judge Rosemarie Scher's Court, formerly Judge John Philips case and Judge Martin Colin.

SURE SEEMS TO ME THAT ALL THE JUDGES AND ATTORNEYS INVOLVED IN THE ESTATE OF SIMON BERNSTEIN AND THE ESTATE OF SHIRLEY BERNSTEIN AND RELATED TRUSTS SHOULD BE ARRESTED ALONG WITH PAYING MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF MONEY IN DAMAGES TO MULTIPLE PARTIES.

"NY Atty, Judge Accused Of Stealing Over $4M From Trusts"


"Law360 (February 23, 2018, 9:08 PM EST) --

A judge in upstate New York and an attorney have been arrested for allegedly stealing more than $4 million from the family trusts they were responsible for overseeing, the New York state attorney general announced Friday.

Richard J. Sherwood, 57, who is an attorney with an Albany law firm and part-time judge for the town of Guilderland, and Thomas K. Lagan, 59, who is an attorney and former financial adviser, were each charged in a felony complaint filed in Albany City Court with various counts of grand larceny, criminal possession of stolen property and scheme to defraud.

“As we allege, the defendants orchestrated a complex scheme to steal millions from trusts they were responsible for protecting,” Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman said in a statement.

 “We have zero tolerance for those who try to game the system and violate the public trust in order to line their own pockets.”

According to the complaint, Sherwood and Lagan provided estate planning services to former General Electric Co. executive Warren Bruggeman, his wife Pauline Bruggeman and her sister Anne S. Urban starting in at least 2006.

It was in that year, the complaint alleged, that the Bruggemans — who by then were elderly and had a reputation for philanthropy in the Albany region — each set up trusts for themselves that also housed sub-trusts intended to benefit Urban and Julia Rentz, Pauline and Anne’s sister.

Warren Bruggeman died in April 2009, leaving his assets to flow through his trust and on to his wife Pauline, who died in August 2011, leaving behind assets in her trust and elsewhere of more than $19.8 million, the complaint said.

Upon their deaths, the complaint alleged, the trust terms called for Urban and Rentz to each get about $2 million from one of the sub-trusts and for Urban to get another $4 million, half of which was to go into another sub-trust specifically for her “health, education, maintenance and support.”

Once Urban died, the remaining money from that sub-trust was supposed to revert back to her sister Pauline’s trust, the funds from which were then to be divvied up among six charities.

Urban in September 2011 signed paperwork putting Sherwood and Lagan in charge of her sister Pauline’s trust and estate, and two months later, Urban approved the creation of another trust in her name that Sherwood and Lagan were also in control of, the complaint said.

The trust documents allegedly specified that the trustee had free rein to parcel out the trust assets to anyone, as long as the trustee had the successor trustee’s approval.

Given that Sherwood and Lagan were designated as trustee and successor trustee, respectively, the two men were in a position to use the trust to their own benefit, the complaint said.

The complaint alleged that Sherwood then moved $4 million out of the Pauline Bruggeman trust and into the new Urban trust’s bank account, while people close to Rentz — who was suffering from dementia — later sent another $2.9 million to the trust after Sherwood allegedly led them to believe the money was destined for the charities benefited by the Pauline Bruggeman trust.

After Urban died in February 2013, the complaint said, the charities did receive some distributions from Pauline Bruggeman’s trust but didn’t get any of what they were supposed to get from the money that had been set aside for Urban’s care.

That money was in fact being disposed of through the Urban trust that Sherwood and Lagan controlled, according to the complaint.

The two men set up another trust, the Empire Capital Trust, for their benefit in 2014 and funded it with money wired from the Urban trust, the complaint said.

Sherwood also allegedly authorized transfers of more than $6 million in Urban trust money to bank accounts in his and Lagan’s names in January 2015.

The complaint said that an investigator with the attorney general’s office interviewed Sherwood this week at his firm, where he subsequently admitted to conspiring with Lagan to get the more than $2 million from Rentz.

“He also admitted that the [Urban trust] was a mechanism used to steal the estate funds and that he and Lagan divided the proceeds of this scheme in roughly even amounts,” the complaint said.

“Sherwood also stated that the scheme, including the wording of the trusts, was devised by Lagan but that he, Sherwood, drafted the documents in order to effectuate it.”

Contact information for Sherwood and Lagan was not immediately available late Friday.

The prosecution is being handled by Assistant Attorneys General Christopher Baynes and Matthew Peluso of the Attorney General’s Public Integrity Bureau, under the supervision of Bureau Chief Daniel G. Cort and Deputy Bureau Chief Stacy Aronowitz.

Counsel information for Sherwood and Lagan was not immediately available late Friday.

The case is People of the State of New York v. Sherwood, et al., case number unavailable, in the Albany City Court. "

Marc Manceri, John Pankauski, Diana Lewis. Alan Rose of Mrachek, Fitzgerald, ROSE, Konopka, Thomas & Weiss knew that that Judge John Philips, at his request and the request of attorney Steve Lessne of Gunster, put a Guardianship on Adults with NO Competency Hearing. This among what I believe to be a whole lot of liability caused to quite a few third parties in the Estate of Simon Bernstein and the Estate of Shirley Bernstein.

 Julian Bivins v. Curtis Rogers. Bivins v. Rogers Case:

"Will a Guardianship Judge’s orders approving your client’s actions shield you from third-party Malpractice Liability?"

"Bivins v. Rogers, 2017 WL 5526874 (S.D. Fla., June 01, 2017)

The general trend in Florida is that a third-party beneficiary of your legal services can sue you for malpractice — and it doesn’t matter that the third party was never your client, had zero privity of contract with you, and may have even been adverse to your actual client in related litigation.
This risk is especially acute in contested probate and guardianship proceedings.
Past examples include cases in which the beneficiaries of a deceased ward’s estate had standing to sue the guardian’s lawyers for malpractice (see here), estate beneficiaries had standing to sue a decedent’s estate planning attorneys for malpractice (see here), a ward had standing to sue the attorney for his former court-appointed guardian for malpractice (see here), and a successor personal representative had standing to sue his predecessor’s attorney for malpractice (see here).
Risk management:
The way most probate and guardianship attorneys manage this kind of risk is to obtain court orders approving the actions of their fiduciary clients (preferably in advance). Surely you can’t get sued for actions a judge has previously ruled are OK, right? 
That’s the question addressed in this U.S. District Court order entered in the Bivins case (which has already been the subject of some commentary on this blog; see here for my take on the court’s ruling regarding Florida’s attorney-client privilege statute as applied to fiduciaries).
Will a guardianship judge’s orders approving your client’s actions shield you from third-party malpractice liability? NO
This case involves a contested guardianship proceeding involving millions of dollars in assets that bled over into a probate proceeding. 
After the ward died his son (who had been locked in ugly litigation against his father’s court-appointed guardians for years prior to his father’s death) was appointed personal representative of his father’s estate. And guess what he did next? He sued the same lawyers he’d been litigating against for malpractice.
The guardian’s lawyers cried foul, arguing that the claims against them were barred by either res judicata or collateral estoppel because the wrongful actions they were being accused of had all previously been approved of by the guardianship judge.
In what will probably come as a shock to most practitioners — the federal judge ruled against the lawyers despite the prior approving orders. Why?

Because the lawyers weren’t actually parties to the underlying guardianship litigation; they were just counsel for one of the parties (the guardian). And because they weren’t parties, they don’t get the defensive benefits of those great orders the guardianship judge had entered saying they and their client had done a great job.

Here’s how the court explained its ruling:
These claims are not barred by either res judicata or collateral estoppel for the simple reason that the Defendant attorneys were not parties or in privity with any party before the guardianship court. In Keramati v. Schackow, the court held that res judicata did not bar bringing a legal malpractice case against attorneys who had represented the plaintiffs in an earlier case even though the earlier case was settled and the clients certified that the settlement was “fair and just.” Keramati v. Schackow, 553 So.2d 741 (Fla. Dist. Ct. App. 1989). 
The court observed that, in the first case, “the adequacy of the amount settled for was not litigated.” Id. at 744. Here, Plaintiff did not have an opportunity to bring its legal malpractice and breach of fiduciary duties against the Defendant attorneys before the guardianship court.
In so finding, the Court rejects the Defendant attorneys’ argument that they are “joint tortfeasors” with the guardians and that there is no way to distinguish the alleged harm by the Defendant attorneys from the alleged harm by the guardians. 
To the contrary, the Defendant attorneys owe duty of care to the ward as well as to the guardian. Fla. AGO 96–94, 1996 WL 680981 (Fla. A.G. Nov. 20, 1996); see Saadeh v. Connors, 166 So. 3d 959, 964 (Fla. Dist. Ct. App. 2015) (finding that the ward is an intended third-party beneficiary of the attorney for the guardian and that therefore the attorney owed the ward a duty of care).
Next, in arguing that summary judgment should be granted on the claims against the Defendant attorneys for malpractice and breach of fiduciary duty, Defendants contend that the guardianship court already determined that all the actions being complained of were made in the best interest of the ward. The Court rejects this argument. 
As discussed supra, the guardianship court never considered whether the Defendant attorneys engaged in malpractice or breached their fiduciary duties. As such, the Court will not grant summary judgment on these claims on the basis of the guardianship court’s rulings.
Jury hits lawyers with $16.4M verdict:
So what do you think happened next?

Here’s where your natural instincts as a practicing attorney used to thinking un-appealed court orders actually mean something, might be your undoing.

If a judge has previously approved every transaction you’re currently being sued over, surely a jury of your peers isn’t going to slam you for that same conduct, right? Wrong!
When the case went to trial things went very, very badly for the defendant attorneys, as reported by the Palm Beach Post in Jury hits lawyers with $16.4M for doing senior wrong in guardianship.

Here’s an excerpt:
Advocates for guardianship reform clamored in vain for years that Florida’s system failed to properly protect incapacitated seniors, that its primary purpose had been perverted to line the pockets of greedy attorneys and professional guardians with the hard-earned life savings of the elderly.
Now they can point to a new federal verdict awarding a whopping $16.4 million in a lawsuit claiming that two West Palm Beach attorneys breached their fiduciary duties while running up “unnecessary and excessive fees” of $1 million
The jury found on July 28 that attorneys Brian M. O’Connell and Ashley N. Crispin of the Ciklin, Lubitz & O’Connell firm not only breached their fiduciary duty but committed professional negligence.
The lawsuit claimed they failed to get appraisals on two high-end New York City properties being divided among family. They were not of equal value and as a result, Julian Bivins ended up with one that was worth millions less than other.
The jury’s decision to award $16.4 million makes up the difference.
So what’s the takeaway?
Shortly after the trial the primary parties settled, which means there likely won’t be any appeals of the trial court’s pre-trial orders. So for now, the last word we’ll have on whether a res judicata or collateral estoppel defense works in this kind of third-party malpractice litigation is the Bivins case, which I predict is going to give a lot of probate and guardianship lawyers heartburn."

Alan Rose of Mrachek, Fitzgerald, ROSE, Konopka, Thomas & Weiss is still trying to cover up 5 years of BLATANT wrong doing, unethical actions, theft, alleged murder, asset loss, scripted attorney schemes, judicial corruption, lies and flat out fraud. And Alan Rose still thinks he can win any of this or come out on top, just because he has had 5 years of VERY HIGH attorney fees paid to him and the law firm of Mrachek, Fitzgerald, ROSE, Konopka, Thomas & Weiss. Ya I don't think so. One Day the TRUTH will Roll Across all their desks and the Liability and Loss will come with it.

Note in this Transcript below we see whiny Alan Rose of Mrachek, Fitzgerald, ROSE, Konopka, Thomas & Weiss saying “we”, ya know the co-conspirators, they had an agreement in 2016 but waited to get other stuff done.

See they were having “trouble” getting stuff done according to Alan Rose. Ya sure. Blah Blah Blah

I say they were waiting for the Illinois insurance scam to be over or them to believe it over, and waiting for approval on the “settlement” in the insurance fraud case, so “they” (the bad guys "we"), could wrap up over 5 years of fraud, predatory guardianship, real estate fraud insurance fraud, asset theft, mortgage fraud, life insurance fraud, civil rights violations, alleged murders, fraud, forgery and more unethical and criminal activities, I Allege.

“We've been having trouble getting that one set” says Alan Rose of Mrachek, Fitzgerald, ROSE, Konopka, Thomas & Weiss. My guess on that is Alan Rose wanted to keep his super duper secret confidential settlement agreement with Tescher and Spallina, a SECRET. ya know the law firm that forged a dead guys signature on estate documents to actually benefit Alan Rose’s client, Ted Bernstein.  So Alan Rose waits years to get court approval on this super secret settlement.

Meanwhile beneficiary Eliot Bernstein was denied rights and standing during that time and Eliot’s children, 2 of which were adults, well they had a predatory guardianship seizing their rights. So ya know, I don’t believe they had trouble setting that one, they simply did not want to, as it was part of their strategy, to deny rights, to wait for the Illinois Insurance Scam to swing in their favor and then seek court approval, with no objections you see as they had used the courts to silence beneficiary Eliot Bernstein and used a former judge, Diana Lewis to enact a predatory guardianship and seize the rights of Eliot’s children. WaLa, magic.

Let’s take a look at the latest court Transcripts from the Estate of Simon Bernstein and the Estate of Shirley Bernstein in West Palm County Florida Courts.

“MR. ROSE: We have a motion to approve
settlement.
There was an objection that was
filed yesterday, so I'm not sure if --

THE COURT: I haven't seen it.

MR. ROSE: This is a motion to approve a
settlement of a claim.

THE COURT: Which case? Because I've got
both motions. For the record, I believe that's
for the Shirley Bernstein case.

MR. ROSE: Well, there's a settlement in
both cases with the same law firm, differing
amounts. A confidential settlement, it was
entered into in July of 2016. We've been
waiting to have the approval hearing heard.

We've been having trouble getting that one set
while we did other things first. So, you know,
we moved to have the settlement approved.

There's an objection.

THE COURT: Who filed the objection?

MR. PERRE: We did, Your Honor. We just
came new to the case. We're representing the
trust beneficiary, Joshua Bernstein.

Our client -- basically, what's happened
is that a guardian ad litem was appointed by
the Court.

At the time that that happened, our
client was already 18 years old and had full
capacity to represent himself.

The reason we're objecting to this motion
is that our client had no idea that there was a
settlement, had no idea what was going on, was
not a part of it, was not consulted by the
guardian ad litem
.

We don't believe his interests are represented here.
The motion itself actually says that the guardian ad litem
has been consulted, that she has --

THE COURT: This is not something we're
going to be able to have today.
All right. So
we'll have to special set. "

Sure wish Mr. Perre could have continued, that was some good stuff. Can’t wait to hear the end of that sentence. How in the world can the Judge, the Attorneys, the PR, and all of them Justify what they have done over the last 5 years?

So Alan Rose let the hearing proceed, wasted time and money of ALL, knowing there were objections still hoping to slide it all under the proverbial Rose Rug? Yeah see there was a whole lot of things that Guardian Diana Lewis had no legal right to be deciding for her ADULT competent wards. And as an experienced former Judge, an expert in Florida Guardianship Law, what excuse could she possibly have? Oh ya you see Judge John Philips ordered it so ya umm I went along with the crime. Oh I mean the predatory guardianship. Knowing full well those whose rights she seized were adults and under Florida Law she had no right to sieze their rights. Judge Martin Colin and Judge Rosemarie Scher went right along with it, and all for years. WOW. South Florida sure is a great place to be a lawyer, a judge and a BAD place to retire, leave assets, or have actual civil rights.

Also keep in mind that former Judge Diana Lewis was not a Guardian prior to this. And Diana Lewis was not picked randomly. She was an old family friend of Brian O'Connell, the PR in this case. I say specifically picked to aid and abet Alan Rose, Ted Bernstein, and Brian O'Connell to cover up years of unethical and fraudulent activities. And to ensure that Judge Martin Colin's unethical and unlawful orders, as well as those of Judge John Philips, were upheld and essentially cover up for the whole gang of predatory guardians, thugs and thieves. (in my Opinion of Course)


Diana Lewis started a new business for her Guardianship simply because she was asked by an attorney in the case, either Alan Rose or Brian O'Connell. Guardian Diana Lewis came into the Bernstein cases for specific reasons and that was NOT the best interest of ALLEGED, yet NOT, minors.

The Shot across the Bow as they say, or perhaps a gentle war cry. As a New Attorney enters the Estate of Simon Bernstein, Estate of Shirley Bernstein Probate Court Case in West Palm Florida, Judge Rosemarie Scher Court. Formerly the Court of Judge Martin Colin.

The Shot across the Bow. 
The Not so Subtle, Gentle, Firm War Cry. 

“what's happened is that a guardian ad litem 
was appointed by the Court.  
At the time that that happened, 
our client was already 18 years old 
and had full 14 capacity to represent himself.”

Years of objections by pro se litigants. Cease and Desist letters with all the applicable law. Experienced lawyers, judges and yet years of a Predatory Guardianship that is in CLEAR violation of LAW and of Civil Rights.  And the courts let it go on and on, doing NOTHING to hold them accountable, Why?

Watch the Lawyer Rats Scramble. Watch the Insurance Companies Exposed. Watch the Truth Roll Out and the Culture of Corruption become Transparent for ALL to SEE.


Keep in mind that Guardian Diana Lewis is an experienced professional in all manner of law that is involved in these cases, as she was an area Judge that dealt with these same legal issues.

Diana Lewis has NO Valid Legal EXCUSE to have not known or understood Florida Guardian Law. In my opinion, she is even more liable as she was someone with expertise and superior knowledge of law.

Keep in Mind that Diana Lewis was given a Cease and Desist long ago that explained to her what she may have not known, though she certainly should have, as she was a professional and has superior knowledge of these matters.  She did nothing to correct this issue nor did the courts or attorneys involved in the cases at that time.

Also keep in mind that for Judge Diana Lewis was not a Guardian prior to this. And Diana Lewis was not picked randomly. She was an old family friend of Brian O'Connell, the PR in this case. I say specifically picked to aid and abet Alan Rose, Ted Bernstein, and Brian O'Connell to cover up years of unethical and fraudulent activities.

Diana Lewis started a new business for her Guardianship simply because she was asked by an attorney in the case, either Alan Rose or Brian O'Connell, check out the Transcript Below.



Cease and Desists Letters to Guardian Diana Lewis

Guardian Diana Lewis claims to not know that she had to file reports or that she had to end guardianship when her wards turned 18 per Florida Law.  Admits to knowing Josh was 18, at the very least when it "whispered" in her ear, as she stated on the stand under Oath. 

An ATTORNEY contacted Diana Lewis to be Guardian? Which parties interest was this attorney representing when they called former Judge Diana Lewis to be Guardian?

Florida Guardianship Programs, Florida Estate and Probate Courts; Florida Judge finds out that a deceased man signed documents to close an estate and benefit certain parties and does nothing about it. Judge Martin Colin Palm County Florida. Judge John Philips. Judge Rosemarie Scher now in charge of cases.

September 17th 2013 Judge Martin Colin Palm Beach County Florida, found out, without a doubt that attorneys were involved in a breach of fiduciary duty, a fraud on the court and on beneficiaries of the Estates involved, and found out that documents were forged in such a way that a deceased man closed an estate. This seems to be a Crime, yet the Judge did not hold any of these attorneys accountable nor make any steps to make the issue right by the beneficiaries wronged in the actions.

Florida Guardianship Programs, Florida Estate and Probate Courts, Florida's court system has violated the rights of as many as possible within their reach, and have done so systematically for decades. Their system involved Catholic Charities, Judges at every level, Police and Investigators, Attorneys, Law Firms, Guardians, Nurses Associations, Nursing Homes, Doctors, Therapists and more. The ABUSE on the public at large has been covered up for decades by the top judges in Florida, and now as many judges are being forced out with the truth and calling it early retirement, well we are seeing accountability coming into sight.


Many victims have died over years as their estates were robbed by this scheme. Their heirs have suffered for decades and the so called authorities have known and done nothing.

Judge Martin Colin was one such judge that assisted these frauds, as was Judge John Philips, they are both off the bench now, however, they have yet to have any accountability for the harm they have caused to countless victims over years.

In the Estate of Simon Bernstein and the Estate of Shirley Bernstein in West Palm Florida, Boca Raton Florida, Palm County Florida, we can see a clear picture of the pattern of fraud and abuse that they have all been involved in for years.

This blog post shows where Judge Martin Colin knew of massive fraud and forgery in his court and well it seems he used it to his advantage and went along with the fraud. To what extend of money, property, or favors Judge Martin Colin received in this case and others, well we only have rumors of his garage sales selling jewelry and of his real estate holdings in multiple states. And from there we can only speculate.

However, we do have a whole lot of documents of clear abuse, fraud on the courts and a Florida Judge doing nothing to hold those guilty accountable.


Judge Martin Colin aided and abetted the criminal activities as I see it, in the Estate of Shirley Bernstein, the Estate of Simon Bernstein and all the fraud, forgery, civil rights violations, predatory guardianship and more. Colin knew all along, as did Judge John Phillips, then head of the Guardianship Program.


The hearing below involves Florida Attorney Mark Manceri, involves attorney Robert Spallina and Donald Tescher. It is regarding the closing of an estate and waivers of accounting signed by someone who was deceased.

Court Hearing Regarding Deceased Signing Documents

Palm Beach County Florida has had decades of guardianship fraud, civil rights violations, human rights violations, estate and probate fraud, nursing home fraud, predatory guardianship and more violations of the rights of their victims.

The attorneys, Judges, and Law Firms involved have been protected by Judges at every level of the court, including Florida Appeals Courts and the Florida Supreme Court.

Their system of fraud and abuse on the public has been reported on in blogs for well over a decade, now bigger media has reported on the situation, and courts have even ruled in the favor of victims in isolated cases.
Click Below For more on this Florida Estate Case in which is a CLEAR example of how the Judges, Attorneys, Guardians, Care workers, Doctors and more work together to protect the theft of estates and abuse of those involved.

Heritage Life Insurance; The Parties who Brought the District of Illinois Lawsuit KNEW from the start that they were filing in the WRONG Jurisdiction. Pamela Simon of STP Enterprises, Ted Bernstein Boca Raton, David Simon, Adam Simon, Scott Wellington of Jackson National and more involved in what sure seems to be Insurance Fraud to me, among other alleged Crimes. Stay Tuned as the TRUTH keeps rolling out and one day there will be the Ears of True Justice to Hear and Justice will be Served.

Eliot Bernstein was ALWAYS, Clearly a Beneficiary.

All the Attorneys, Judges, Guardians, Life Insurance Companies and others involved in all of this will someday be held accountable, it is simply how the TRUTH works. The Truth rises to the Top so we can all see it Clearly.

Plaintiff Ted Bernstein knowingly stated false facts to the Illinois Court and the Court simply took those statements as fact, with no lower court ruling or proof, and with no Trust, and NO Life Insurance Policy. This District of Illinois Case seems to set a precedent whereby anyone can get life insurance on anyone, or claim they had it and have no policy, and even in a case where there was murder alleged and a toxic coroners report. WOW.

Seems to be a Clear Case of Fraud on the Court and Insurance Fraud, as far as I See it.
