Why I Started This Blog

I started this blog for my children

Our story is written as a Federal Law Suit, and an Article 78 (which is legaleze for when you sue a Judge) below on the right hand side.. and well as numerous Motions & Petitions.

Don't shoot the messenger.. but guess what..

Many court rooms are corupted by some not so honest judges!

Innocent or not..

In the blink of an eye.. you can lose your kids, your life savings, your inheritance, your house and or your mind!

That's why I've continued to post to this blog because...

So many children are being destroyed by our wonderful system..

They've forced me to become a Child/Family and Civil Rights advocate/activist.

I should thank them for the education I got out of this!

Don't miss the videos at the bottom of the page.. of Senator Sampson holding hearings on corruption within the N.Y. Court System!

Attorney Grant Goodman Suspended Without a Hearing


Longtime Arizona attorney Grant Goodman made serious allegations over the past year against attorneys and guardians in Maricopa County Probate Court.

“Assets are being raped and pillaged every day,” said Goodman.

Accusations like that may have landed him in trouble.

“The conduct that’s going on in probate is in effect, unconstitutional.”

The Arizona Supreme Court suspended Goodman's license to practice law with what is called an Interim Suspension. Goodman was temporarily suspended last month awaiting this final order. * See Final Order of Interim Suspension

According to a press release issued by the State Bar of Arizona, the disciplinary judge indicated that Goodman’s conduct "will result in substantial harm, loss or damage to the public, the legal profession or the administration of justice."

The suspension comes after Goodman filed lawsuits on behalf of incapacitated adults; adults Maricopa County Probate Court ruled couldn't handle their money or medical care.

Some of the people mentioned in those lawsuits surrounding probate court are mentioned in the motion filed by the state bar against Goodman. The motion also notes a complaint by one of Goodman’s clients filed December 3, 2010. The client hired Goodman to represent him in a mortgage fraud case that included malpractice charges against another attorney.

ABC15 Investigation
The ABC15 Investigators reported on those lawsuits in a series of stories uncovering flaws in the Maricopa County Probate System.

Families accused the court of allowing their loved ones to be isolated and heavily medicated while their assets were liquidated.

In an interview with ABC15 more than a year ago, Goodman described the county's probate process as criminal.

“These people are more organized than the mob. Plus, they have a court rubberstamp the proceeding.”

Many of the people mentioned in the motion that led to the Goodman's suspension, are people mentioned in our investigations. They are the same people Goodman is suing.

Goodman claims that it is no coincidence.

“You asked the question earlier about retaliation. It goes well above and beyond that. It is just simply about money,” said Goodman.

The bar claims he is a danger to the public. Goodman replied, “I am a danger to the judges and lawyers that I've sued.”

Goodman called the probate process "racketeering" claiming lawyers and guardians were controlling these people and taking all their money.

“There is no one willing to take up their cause," said Goodman.

The bar's suspension which came without a hearing, accuses Goodman of consistent misconduct.

The allegations also turn the tables on Goodman by claiming he was taking advantage of the very incapacitated adults he was hired to represent.

“I have not taken a nickel, not a nickel from any of these people that I represent. And they still continue harp about that,” said Goodman, “I am after the money? Really? I am after, in fact, that they have taken all the money. That's what they object to.”

The next step is for the Arizona Supreme Court to make the temporary suspension permanent. That could stay in effect for five years. Goodman could eventually get disbarred.
