    >I like the writer's style — suggesting that there are ways to make guardianship LESS likely. That's exactly right. You can do everything right and still they can get you if they target you. But, still we need to take every step we can to protect ourselves if we can.

    >I should qualify my previous post here and say ….Not all lawyers are bad. Having been in both buaisnees and the workings of a law practice I can tell you that there is good and bad in everything and every profession. There are many good lawyers, problem is, there are far too many victims for the few good lawyers.
