Dr. Sam Sugar:  An Iconic Warrior for Guardianship Reform


Dr. Sam Sugar is the guest on this episode of the podcast series.   Dr. Sugar is the founder of a nonprofit education and advocacy organization known as Americans Against Abusive Probate Guardianship.  AAAPG began operating in 2013.  Dr. Sugar and his organization have been in the national forefront of focusing attention on the plight of victims of guardianship abuse ever since.  He is also the author of Guardianships and the Elderly: The Perfect Crime (Square One 2018).  The book is described as a survival guide to understanding, dealing with, and avoiding the economic, physical, and psychological abuses of guardianships.  Podcast host Thomas F. Coleman will interview Dr. Sugar about his reasons for creating AAAPG and his attempts at guardianship reform over the years.  Did anything good come out of the 2019 Guardianship Abuse Forum in Tampa?  Will the 2021 Guardianship Summit have an impact?  Held on Aoril 11-12, the summit was a national interactive forum where thought leaders in the fields of academia, law enforcement, judiciary and advocacy shared their knowledge and expertise with a wide and diverse audience for whom guardianship of a loved one has become a critically important matter.
