Her identify was obtained from first husband, Jeff Fierle with whom topic filed for bankruptcy in 1997–which ought to have disqualified her from any Guardianships!

Becky Dobbins – maiden identify/family of origin identify— final identify of brother Michael Dobbins who is used by Fierle when creating invoices on automotive repairs of wards’ automobiles. Michael Dobbins owns Mickey’s Auto Repair in Orlando, Florida.

Rebecca “Fierle” has owned greater than 350 guardianship wards in 13 Florida counties since commencing her profession as knowledgeable guardian. (Orange, Seminole, Lake, Alachua, Duval, Brevard, Polk, Osceola, Holmes, St. Lucie, Clay, and Pineallas, and Marion.  The majority of guardianships have been obtained in Orange and Seminole Counties. In the course of the late 90’s, Fierle labored as a care supervisor for the larger Orlando Council on Growing older (now generally known as “Seniors First”) Fierle would strategy elderly persons at their houses to see if they wanted any free providers, reminiscent of free transportation to docs’ appointments, new glasses, or Meals on Wheels. Rebecca “Fierle” also used to man a hotline in Orlando the place seniors in misery would name to report numerous incidents, based on Orlando police data.

By way of these  and other strategies that Fierle discovered her wards. Rebecca “Fierle” additionally has been referred by social staff at hospitals and nursing houses once they feel a patient wants a guardian. It has been alleged that Fierle additionally checks with Hearth and Rescue and police data to obtain info on potential wards.

She also volunteers at Division of Youngsters and Family Providers and making it unlikely that she can be investigated without some bias by DCF, since she is part of their staff.

From Courtroom data: Through the late 90’s and early 2000s, Fierle obtained powers of lawyer over a number of aged victims. For instance, in the case of Florence Barbour, Fierle obtained a power of lawyer over Barbour in Might 2002. Fierle then bought the Barbour house for $80,000.00 and placed Barbour in Palm Gardens in Orlando. In November 2002, Barbour died and the courtroom data point out that there was roughly $1,480.00 left in Barbour’s property, from which Fierle, as personal consultant,paid to the heirs, two long-time associates of Barbour who reside in Ohio.  There was virtually $80,000.00 unaccounted for in just this one case.

Florida decide issues order removing skilled guardian Rebecca Fierle from almost 100 instances after discovering she signed “Do Not Resuscitate” orders for individuals underneath her care without consulting households or the courtroom. A type of wards, Steven Stryker, choked to demise after Fierle ordered the removing of his feeding tube and signed a DNR. Fierle is one one the state’s most prolific guardians, with, at occasions, lots of of individuals beneath her care, together with a dozen in Tampa Bay.

Wow!!–an unprecedented major breakthrough. An trustworthy decide (Thorpe) with an trustworthy courtroom investigator is all it takes to lastly begin to cope with one in every of Florida’s most prolific skilled guardians who for years has wreaked havoc in a number of counties throughout the state, in accordance with dozens of her victims.

Up to now lost on this story is the id of the lawyer who, despite most just lately distancing himself from her, represented her for years (this is public document) in so many of these instances, Thomas P. Moss of Sawyer and Sawyer in Orlando Florida. What position did he play in enabling this activity? How a lot did he profit from the estates of the Wards? Why was there never any scrutiny from the BAR?

And the way concerning the Judges who aided and abetted the exploitation of lots of of estates in almost a dozen Florida Counties–from only one guardian!? And where have been the Clerk’s audits, the Medicare Fraud Unit, the Medicaid Fraud Investigators, the Courtroom auditors, the Coroners, OIG inspectors, the accountants, bankers with fiduciary obligations, APS, the Docs who followed orders to overmedicate wards—where have been they during the last 2 many years whereas was this happening?? If there have been investigations why have there be no arrests or indictments?

The reality is, this oft seen guardian conduct reveals what has now turn into apparent–the federal government has utterly did not reign in this excessive type of ageism which has destroyed countless innocent individuals and their households and fortunes for many years. It’s excessive time that Florida’s AG Ashley Moody stop hiding behind her desk and eventually difficulty indictments of the gang of criminals who have been reported to her and her predecessor Pam Bondi intimately and who have been perpetrating these crimes in Probate Courts for many years with impunity. It’s excessive time for Governor Ron DeSantis to take government action to freeze all new guardianships till this mess might be straightened out. It’s time for the individuals to take again their courts. All that’s needed is an trustworthy investigation– the information will then converse for themselves.

Right here is more–Thomas Sawyer, the Founding Associate at Sawyer and Sawyer the agency that represented Fierle in dozens of instances with lawyer Thomas P. Moss (who went to Stetson Regulation Faculty) is a Florida Licensed Physician (Radiation/Radiology) and get this, for years and as of at the moment he’s nonetheless certainly one of only 2 MD’s on the Probate Analyzing Committee in Orlando.

So this ensemble has the means, strategies and alternative to determine potential wards at numerous medical amenities, shortly have incapacity hearings the place the examiner end result is perhaps predetermined and guaranteed, begin assured ETG’s to which conflicted guardian was routinely appointed, lawyer up to begin billings impoverishing the households, get appointed by a decide for a everlasting guardianship, begin and never cease billing and make the most of suppliers who profited from her scheme. Isn’t this overt and blatant racketeering at its best. That is so apparent–why did each company and governmental safeguard flip a blind eye to it? Something could be very mistaken right here.

Why gained’t the FL AG Ashley Moody act? Why didn’t former Atty. Gen. Pam Bondi act?

As a result of these instances all involved and originated with untouchable judges within the 18th judicial District of Florida.

Judges John Galluzzo, Nancy Alley, and Toby Monaco and even Decide Thorpe herself who for years and years granted all these guardianships usually are not silly. No rational individual might consider that these judges have been unaware for many years of the brutality they have been fostering and the injury they have been doing to innocent citizens in their district by turning a blind eye and for all anybody is aware of so far, probably profiting themselves in some trend.

Other regulation companies have gotten in on the act in recent times because the instances and the heat and scrutiny and hubris of Fierli built up and lots of companies prevented representing her.

Public data show Leslie Tamara Yadi, who is a licensed medical social employee and graduated regulation faculty just a few years in the past and entered the BAR in 2015 runs a solo regulation apply and has grow to be very seen by representing this guardian in her newer guardianships. Her unique mixture of expertise and skills allows her to leverage assets in each fields to convey recent new instances.

Philip J Wallace represents hospitals and has develop into lively in many of these instances supporting the guardian. It should go without saying that he is able to determine countless potential wards in the institutions he represents and to advocate positions which shield and enrich the hospitals he represents.

Eric Mashburn has been training regulation for four many years and has in the final decade been closely concerned in instances when quite a few other legal professionals refuse to turn out to be concerned.

However probably the most intriguing lawyer working this scheme was this one.

From 2007 – 2012, Fierle additionally employed Lawyer Anthony Nardella.

In response to one advocate and probate victim….

In addition to aiding and defending Fierle, Anthony Nardella can also be a licensed Christian minister together with his personal church in Clearwater, Florida.  He and his  buddies have a non-profit organization generally known as Hearts of Titus.  They fly right down to Ecuador the place they assist the blind to see again and the deaf to listen to.  Back when Nardella was representing Fierle, he was in Ecuador, at one point, and allegedly also billing hours from a ward’s estate, claiming he was reading the courtroom data at the similar actual time that he was therapeutic the deaf and blind in Ecuador. Allegedly, advocates have discovered proof of double billing the place  he personally was the guardian on youngsters’s estates.  For example, he would ask the judges for $25,000 in fees.  But when evaluating hooked up billing statements, he would truly take $50,000.

For years, Lawyer Anthony Nardella and Decide Joseph Galluzzo labored collectively in courtroom in most of the instances involving Fierle.

And that isn’t all.

Also, throughout this time period, Fierle used each Attorneys Ian Gilden and his spouse Ann Marie Giordano Gilden.  Ian would symbolize Fierle and the judges would appoint his spouse to characterize the wards in Seminole County. Is that not a clear battle of interest?

There are lots of extra characters in simply this one guardian’s story.

But probably the most superb facet of this extremely sad and disappointing story is that it has gone on for many years unchecked, unmonitored, unsupervised, untouchable and absolutely endorsed by almost half a dozen sitting probate equity judges over time. All of those people have been reported multiple occasions to the appropriate state and federal businesses. Yet regardless of the dozens of officially accountable governmental businesses, committees, assessment boards, disciplinary organizations in Florida, this probate racketeering business has remained unscathed to unleash abject terror on innocent people and families with no worry of repercussions or recriminations. To this present day, there has been only one try and decertify any Florida skilled Guardian and it’s being strongly contested and should take years to succeed in a conclusion.

At this moment Rebecca Fierle continues to be a licensed Florida skilled Guardian and to date the one allegations towards her need to do with do not resuscitate orders. Nothing about racketeering, nothing about theft of funds, nothing about elder abuse, nothing about conspiracy to commit fraud, nothing about manslaughter or a number of other official potential expenses.

And keep in mind: all the foregoing is about just the one guardian. There are over 600 guardians in Florida and while lots of them are trustworthy hard-working good individuals, there are far too many criminally abusive guardians in far too many judicial districts. The judges, legal professionals and guardians and everybody of their networks who’ve rained terror on innocent victims all all through the state while dishonoring their oath’s, besmirching the legal career and perverting the statutes designed to offer safety to the weak ALL have to be outed and delivered to justice.

There isn’t any need for brand spanking new laws. The legal guidelines which might be at present on the books meant to guard these in need are ok but are simply being ignored because judges can do this with their unlimited latitude in their judicial fiefdoms. Regulation enforcement has failed miserably  to acknowledge that these instances aren’t civil however felony. The Florida BAR and Judicial Qualifications Fee have offered cover for these heinous acts and have to be referred to as to process for their failure to protect the harmless citizens of this state.

Briefly what AAAPG has been writing about on this area for almost a decade is now turning into well-known. We have now a crisis throughout america. Guardianship as it is at present constructed and executed in far too many courtrooms in America is way too typically an antiquated, archaic, dysfunctional Unamerican but extremely profitable “industry” run by a sizable minority of insiders in our fairness courtroom methods. It poses an existential menace to the liberty of every growing older American and has the potential to engulf an ever-expanding variety of households because the child boomer era turns into a wealthy, juicy low hanging goal for predation.

The existence of this “industry” is not any secret. Countless complaints from infinite numbers of victims and their families have been dismissed and ignored by politicians, legislators, courtroom administration, the mainstream media, and a disbelieving public who can’t imagine that abusive guardianship might intrude on their lives till it truly does.

This conflicted and sometimes illegitimate system and the predators in it have to be referred to as out and delivered to justice.
