This Article of MassInjustice.Org is Under Construction
This link of MassInjustice.Org, once again, exposes the Injustice in the Courts of Massachusetts. No, this is not a criminal case or a s. 1983 Federal case grounded in the U.S. Constitution's Bill of Rights; this article is the exposure of blatant documented corruption in a Massachusetts Court, as Orchestrated and controlled by a Mass. Probate Judge John D. Casey, who is the presiding Probate Court Judge in Norfolk County Probate Court. This link was written as the various documented events of lawlessness and violations of Massachusetts law unfolded from June of 2015 through, at this writing, now June of 2017. The Probate Court and participating Conspirators, including 4 lawyers and the Registrar of the Norfolk County Probate Court - Patrick McDermott, were alerted to this exposure of their documented Corruption of Mass. Probate law via the World Free Internet, but chose to continue for two years, the continuous egregious violations of law; the same law they have sworn to uphold.
How often have you heard of the problems with the Court Authorities experienced by People who find themselves fortunate to be at the end of an Inheritance? These heirs express their contempt for the Probate Court and Attorneys involved in the Probate (liquidation and distribution of assets and cash) of the Estate. It even gets worse, if one or more of the heirs decide they are going to trick the other heirs expecting to gain an unfair advantage for their greater share of the inheritance. When the heirs try to gain unfair advantage or argue an issue that rises concerning the Estate, then the Attorneys and Court go to the work of Exploitation, usually via litigation, like the Social Parasites they are and are trained and experienced at grabbing as much of that "free" Estate money that they control before any heir can rightfully be allowed by them to their inheritance.
Due to the fact that the evidence of Corruption of the Probate of the Estate of June Elbery in Norfolk County Court was recorded as they occurred, the more recent events and evidence of corruption and deliberate and knowing lawlessness of that Estate's Probate will appear first, or in reverse Chronological Order. Scroll down 3/4's of this link to the section that features Attorney Michael A. Crowe rigging the appointment of his client, David Elbery, as Personal Representative to liquidate the Estate for the first illegal event that occurred in June of 2015. This rigging of David Elbery as Personal Representative was with knowing corruption and participation of Mass. Probate Judge - John D. Casey and Norfolk County Probate Registrar - Patrick McDermott.
Readers need to be informed of the legal difference between the Probated Estate and any Real Estate left by the Deceased to her heirs. Under Massachusetts Probate Law an Estate, (or Inheritance), is legally divided into two distinct parts; the Probated Estate consists of the Personal Property left by the deceased, the Real Estate is not part of the Probated Estate and immediately is owned and titled to the heirs as tenants in common by Operation of Massachusetts Law. As result, the Probate Court in Massachusetts has NO JURISDICTION and NO LEGAL AUTHORITY over the Real Estate part of the Inheritance, just the deceased Personal Property (the Probated Estate). There is a slight variance to this rule which excludes the Probate Court in Mass. from Jurisdiction over the Real Estate of an Inheritance and that is during the one year period allowed by Mass. Probate Law for creditors to come forward and make claim for debt owed to them by the Deceased. If the debts of the Deceased are in excess of personal property assets left by the Deceased, then the Court will allow the Real Estate (house) to be sold so to pay off the debts of the Deceased. The Probate Court issues a "License to Sell Real Estate (the house) to the Personal Representative, who is Appointed by the Court to liquidate the Probated part of the Estate and distribute the resulting Cash to the heirs.
In this Probate Case of June Elbery there was no debt at all, just Cash and a House in Needham, Mass.. There was no mortgage on this House in Needham, Mass.
The Fraud and Illegalities of Attorney James A. McLaughlin
There have been no updates in many months, now at June of 2017, regarding the Estate of June Elbery, but there have been in the last 9 months some more outrageous Fraud and outright Criminal Activity by the needlessly appointed second Personal Representative, Attorney James A. McLaughlin, to the Probated Estate of June Elbery.
Who needlessly appointed Attorney James A. McLaughlin as the second and needless Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery? The Norfolk County Probate Court Judge John D. Casey. McLaughlin's Appointment was all planned well in advance, as the first Personal Representative, Steve Hanna, finished liquidating the Estate with the exception of the remnants of the Lionel Train Set that was sitting in the cellar of the Estate House. These "trains" were the now worthless remnants of the Lionel Train Set that had been sacked over the decades. The Norfolk County Probate Court Judge John D. Casey used these worthless "toy trains" as excuse to leave the Probated Estate of June Elbery Open, only so that his friend and fellow Irishman, Attorney James A. McLaughlin, could not just make a living but Steal. McLaughlin is a Crook who sees an Estate as his money. McLaughlin is allowed by Judge John D. Casey to "take his cut"; Crook McLaughlin's Stealing is approved and enforced by the power of the Norfolk County Probate Court, Judge John D. Casey and Registrar Patrick McDermott.
A Personal Representative is a new term used in Massachusetts Probate Law for a Court Appointed fiduciary, whose job it is to liquidate the Probated part of the Estate as fast as possible and distribute the money to the heirs of the Estate. The heirs of June Elbery could not agree on a Personal Representative, so the Court is required to appoint the Personal Representative. But that doesn't mean the Personal Representative has a right to violate the law and steal, just because he is a lawyer and was appointed by the Court. More importantly, the Probate Court of Norfolk County and the elected Registrar of Norfolk County Probate Court, Patrick McDernott, are not supposed to encourage the Personal Representative's stealing, especially when they are alerted to Attorney James A. McLaughlin's Stealing and Fraud by the various legal filings that heir to the Estate of June Elbery, Michael Elbery, has filed concerning that Probated Estate
Here is a list of Illegalities Committed by Attorney James A. McLaughlin during the one year since his Appointment on May 31, 2017 by Judge John D. Casey.
9-8-17 - Attorney James A. McLaughlin Lies to the Norfolk County Probate Court. Attorney James A. McLaughlin got caught red handed falsifying Bank Balances for the Estate of June Elbery. McLaughlin documented in his "First Account" of the Estate of June Elbery filed with the Norfolk County Probate Court on July 31, 2017 that there was a balance of $52,904.64 in cash in the Estate Bank Account. Michael Elbery, a C.P.A., prepared a Proof of Cash for the Estate and found that McLaughlin was committing Fraud and that the $52,904.64 cash balance was a fabrication.
Michael Elbery then exercised his rights to gain Discovery in order to corroborate what he already knew, Attorney James A. McLaughlin was again lying. Michael Elbery sent McLaughlin a "Demand for Documents" as allowed in Probate Cases per the Mass. Rules of Civil Procedure - Rule 37. Specifically, in his Demand for Documents, Michael Elbery requested all the Bank Statements and cancelled Checks for the Estate of June Elbery. These bank statements and checks are something that the heirs to the Estate are normally and legally entitled to, but in the case of the Estate of June Elbery and the 2 Court Appointed Personal Representatives of that Estate, McLaughlin being the second Personal Representative, everything is abnormal and illegal.
Michael Elbery will find more fraud and illegalities by Attorney James A. McLaughlin once he is provided with his legally entitled Documentation Discovery (Bank Statements and Checks of the Estate).
McLaughlin has refused to produce the Bank Statements or checks as Demanded by Michael Elbery.
Instead, McLaughlin filed a one page document with the Norfolk County Probate Court where McLaughlin "certifies" that "all discovery has been sufficiently completed", and McLaughlin requests "resolution of the case at a pre-trial conference". This is a documented lie by Attorney James A. McLaughlin because NO DISCOVERY has been complied with and McLaughlin has not provided any Discovery. There is good reason for McLaughlin to try and get the discovery defeated and swept under the table in a pre-trial conference by a Court Clerk, and that is because McLaughlin is falsifying Court documents and committing more fraud on the Estate of June Elbery.
What kind of "certification" is this that McLaughlin filed with the Norfolk County Probate Court? It is not even Signed!!
Attorney James A. McLaughlin's plan is to have a court Clerk preside over his proposed "Pre-Trial Conference" and illegally resolve McLaughlin's debacle by Keeping his falsification of the Estate Cash and other Fraud, as herein, out of an Open Court Hearing in front the Probate Court Judge. McLaughlin knows that such a Scandal as McLaughlin has created by his falsification of the Estate Bank Balance would even the Probate Court Judge in trouble should that Judge ignore McLaughlin's criminal behavior regarding the falsification of bank balances and other continued Fraud on the Estate of June Elbery.
Flash - Latest McLaughlin Lie and Trick - On 7-6-17 Attorney James A. McLaughlin sent the 5 heirs of June Elbery an email that falsely documented that McLaughlin had filed a "Petition for New Title Certificate"; Attorney James A. McLaughlin included in this email a fabricated Massachusetts Land Court docket #17 SBQ 6772-86-00. Michael Elbery searched the "Massachusetts Trial Court Electronic Case Search" which provides access via the Internet of all docket entries for all cases in each Court of Jurisdiction and each County of Massachusetts. First, Michael Elbery let the other heirs know that there was again something wrong with Attorney James A. McLaughlin and that both McLaughlin and Michael Elbery know something ("a fact") that they don't. Then Michael Elbery Revealed the "fact", Michael Elbery's search revealed there was no such docket number in the Mass. Land Court as #17 SBQ 6772-86-001 and that Attorney James A. McLaughlin was lying again. Michael Elbery also called the Mass. Land Court (the Land Court is located in Boston in Pemberton Square) and the Clerk of that Court confirmed that there was no such docket as #17 SBQ 6772-86-001; the Land Court Clerk further checked the Land Court docket for an entry under the name of June Elbery and the names of her 5 heirs (Robert, Michael, David, Joyce, Kathleen all having the last name Elbery) and found no docket entry under those names. Michael Elbery even searched the Land Court docket for Attorney James A. McLaughlin and found there was no current filing by Attorney James A. McLaughlin in the Land Court.
So why did Attorney James A. McLaughlin engage in such amateur tricks and Lies? Attorney James A. McLaughlin was trying to force Michael Elbery into signing McLaughlin's LCP-2 Form, so that McLaughlin would have control over the 5 heirs' House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. left to them by June Elbery. McLaughlin highlighted in his email that Michael Elbery was the only heir not signing the LCP-2 Form. Attorney James A. McLaughlin was threatening that because Michael Elbery is the only heir not signing the LCP-2, then he is the only heir who disagrees and therefore is subject to incur the cost of a "Petition for Partition" which would basically cut Michael Elbery's 1/5 proceeds from the House Sale at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. by one half. Michael Elbery returned a Volley of emails instructing McLaughlin that he can never represent Michael Elbery because McLaughlin is biased and not Independent concerning Michael Elbery, and therefore simple law 101 prohibits McLaughlin from ever representing Michael Elbery. Further, Michael Elbery reminded McLaughlin that he has caught McLaughlin stealing from the Probated Estate of June Elbery and he, Michael Elbery, has alerted the World via the World Free Internet to this theft from the heirs of June Elbery; all the more reason why McLaughlin is not independent and can never represent Michael Elbery in any legal capacity.
Michael Elbery also instructed McLaughlin that he has made it quit clear that he, Michael Elbery, represents himself and is exercising his rights Under the 6th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution to self-representation. The other heirs sit back fearing Attorney James A. McLaughlin and his alleged and Fake Authority and never question the cost of McLaughlin theft from the Probated Estate of June Elbery. Attorney James A. McLaughlin was Appointed by his crony Judge John D. Casey of the Norfolk County Probate Court to be the second Personal Representative of the Probated Estate of June Elbery. Attorney James A. McLaughlin has NO LEGAL AUTHORITY over the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. the title to that house owned by June Elbery transfered to the 5 heirs at her death by Operation of Mass. Law.
Attorney James A. McLaughlin allowed by Probate Court - NO BOND
Attorney James A. McLaughlin was not Bonded. McLaughlin was not Bonded and there could be no Surety to insure against McLaughlin's stealing. When heir to the Estate of June Elbery, Michael Elbery, protested McLaughlin's lack of Bond, Attorney James A. McLaughlin posted Bond on 11-16-16, but no legally mandated Surety. For 6 months the Clerk's Office of Registrar Patrick McDermott and the Court of Judge John D. Casey allowed Attorney James A. McLaughlin to be a Pirate without Bond or Surety, while being Appointed by Judge Casey as Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery. See Court docket #37 dated 6-2-16 for the recording by the Court of Attorney James A. McLaughlin's Appointment as Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery but there is no recording until 11-15-16 via docket #43 & #44 of Attorney James A. McLaughlin posting his Bond. However, McLaughlin still never posted the legally mandated surety. And guess who allowed McLaughlin to be an Un-Bonded Court Appointed Pirate, while being Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery? That's right, Judge John D. Casey and Norfolk County Probate Court Registrar, Patrick McDermott and his Clerk's Office.
Attorney James A. McLaughlin Stole the Estate Home Insurance money.
Attorney James A. McLaughlin refused to produce the Final Mass. Estate Tax Returns to the heirs.
Attorney James A. McLaughlin tried to conceal the $12K Mass. Estate Tax refund from the Mass. DOR.
Attorney James A. McLaughlin tried to conceal and refused to produce the Mass. DOR Tax Release on the Estate House, so that the heirs could sell the house. McLaughlin still has the Original and refuses to part with it.
Attorney James A. McLaughlin filed a "Form MPC 455 Assent and waiver of Notice" with the Norfolk County Probate Court which prevented Michael Elbery from receiving notifications of the activity and filings on the Probate Case of June Elbery. Michael Elbery was the only heir, entitled to receive the Court Notifications because he was the only heir to enter an "Appearance" when he "Objected" to the Illegal Appointment of David Elbery as Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery. As a result of that "Form MPC 455 Assent and waiver of Notice" filed by McLaughlin, the Norfolk County Probate Court Clerk's Office has refused, since McLaughlin's appointment, to forward by mail, or otherwise, any docketed activity of the Estate of June Elbery to heir, Michael Elbery. The other heirs have never received any notifications of the Docket activity of the Probated Estate of June Elbery.
McLaughlin then had the Norfolk County Clerk's Office send Michael Elbery a falsified 455 Assent Form.
The only reason Michael Elbery received, in May of 2017, some of the docketed court documents from the Norfolk County Probate Court Clerk's Office was because Michael Elbery refused to sign a LCP-2 Form that McLaughlin needed signed by all 5 heirs in order to take control of the Real Estate at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.. Michael Elbery demanded all docketed Court documents, since McLaughlin's appointment as Personal Representative, be forwarded to him by the Clerk's Office before he would sign the LCP-2 Form. Michael Elbery only received some of the docketed documents filed at the Norfolk County Court from the Clerk's Office at the command of McLaughlin. To be sure, McLaughlin has something hide as does the Norfolk County Clerk's Office and the Judge John S. Casey. Michael Elbery told McLaughlin not to hold his breath waiting for the signed LCP-2 Form.
McLaughlin has promised several times, in writing, that when the Mass. Estate Probate Tax Return is filed that he would distribute the remaining Cash in the Probate Estate of June Elbery to the 5 heirs. However, that Tax Return was finalized and approved by the Mass. DOR in October of 2015 and the Refund in the amount of $12K was submitted to McLaughlin. McLaughlin attempted to conceal the $12K Refund so he could do more stealing.
Attorney James A. McLaughlin Provides Documented Admission that as PR he has nothing to do!
Attorney James A. McLaughlin sent the 5 heirs of the Estate of June Elbery a 6-22-16 introduction letter, whereby, McLaughlin admitted to the 5 heirs that the only thing left for him to do as the newly appointed Second Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery was to liquidate the only item of personal property left in the Probated Estate; that's right the remnants (junk no one wanted over the decades) of the Lionel Train set that has been in the cellar of the house at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. that is now owned by the 5 heirs. At McLaughlin's invitation, Michael Elbery on September 1, 2016 submitted the high bid of $1.00 for the junk that was left of the train set. 99% of the Lionel Train Set was taken out of the cellar decades ago by Paul Elbery. McLaughlin fearing he could no longer have an excuse to steel his monthly management fees from the Probated Estate of June Elbery, refused to acknowledge Michael Elbery's high bid of $1.00, so Michael Elbery resubmitted that same $1.00 bid a total of three times in attempt to prevent McLaughlin's stealing and Close the Estate of June Elbery. McLaughlin continued his stealing failing to recognize Michael Elbery's high bids of $1.00, so McLaughlin would fraudulently maintain his feeble excuse to keep the Estate of June Elbery Open.
Then on 9-4-16 heir, Michael Elbery, Petitioned the Norfolk County Probate Court of Judge John D. Casey to Close the Estate of June Elbery and Distribute the Remaining Cash to the heirs. This Petition hit the Norfolk County Probate Court were it counts and they wanted to conceal that same Petition so the Norfolk County Probate Court Clerk's Office of Registrar Patrick McDermott refused to docket that Petition; it was purged like in Totalitarian Stalinist U.S.S.R.. Or see a Docket sheet downloaded in July of 2017, there is never a docket entry in early September of 2016 for that same Petition.
McLaughlin's Legally Mandated 1 year Account to be Filed with the Probate Court - More Documented McLaughlin Fraud
Michael Elbery filed a legal document with the Norfolk County Probate Court in May of 2107 demanding that Attorney James A. McLaughlin submit the legally mandated Account an Inventory of the Estate of June Elbery due on the Year Anniversary ( May 31, 2017) of the Personal Representative's Appointment. McLaughlin sent the 5 heirs his "Inventory" and "Account of the Estate Cash Activity", including cash receipts and disbursements during McLaughlin's Appointment. Besides McLaughlin's "Account" of the Estate of June Elbery (accounting activity of the Estate while McLaughlin as Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery) being complete with Fraudulent accounting entries that are so obvious only a simpleton would document such Bribes and Embezzlement. But the biggest Fraud was the $13K in fees McLaughlin stole from the Estate of June Elbery for doing nothing. McLaughlin provides no provision in his "Account" or "Inventory" for any "Closing" of the Estate of June Elbery by "Distributing" the remaining Cash to the Five heirs. McLaughlin intends to Keep the Estate Open until he steals all the money in Fraudulent Management Fees and other Fraudulent Scams used to Steal money from the Probate Estate of June Elbery.
Attorney James A. McLaughlin fraudulently, via his "cover letter", to his "Account" and "Inventory" documented that he was filing the required "Petition for Allowance for Account" with the Probate Court and the 5 heirs, however, that is the last thing Attorney James A. McLaughlin will do, because even the Norfolk County Probate Court Judge Casey and elected Registrar of the Norfolk County Court McDermott's Clerk's Office are afraid to be associated with documented Fraud. McLaughlin never filed any "Petition for Allowance of Account", let alone the Account or Inventory with the Norfolk County Probate Court. Attorney James A. McLaughlin continues to conceal his fraudulent account from the Norfolk County Probate Court.
McLaughlin did submit an "Inventory" and "Account" to the Heirs, but who knows how bad the real truth is? There were no bank statements or even dates or check numbers on the "Account" activity, so who would believe any document McLaughlin submitted.
Even Attorney James A. McLaughlin admits, see 4th paragraph, per his email of his Account that is the law that he required by law to submit his Account of the Estate of June Elbery after one year of his Court Appointment as Personal Representative or at May 31, 2017 per McLaughlin.
And here they are the Documented Evidence!
ATTORNEY JAMES A. McLAUGHLIN'S ACCOUNT OF THE PROBATED ESTATE OF JUNE ELBERY
Attorney James A. McLaughlin pretended to file his "Account" that is required by Mass. Probate Law after one year as Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery. Why Pretend? Because Attorney James A. McLaughlin did not file his one year anniversary "Account" with the Probate Court. Oh, McLaughlin tried to trick the heirs of the Estate of June Elbery into believing he filed his yearly "Account" with the Norfolk County Probate Court, as is required by Mass. Probate Law. See McLaughlin's "cover letter" submitted to the heirs with his "Account"; that "cover letter" indicates (3rd Paragraph) that "I am enclosing herewith a copy of the Probate Inventory, First Probate Account, "Petition for Allowance of Account".
That above "Petition for Allowance of Account" is bolded because that is the document that Attorney James A. McLaughlin deliberately failed to send to the heirs or the Norfolk County Probate Court. See McLaughlin's Account, this is what McLaughlin sent the heirs, but he sent nothing to the Norfolk County Probate Court. Don't believe it? See the Docket Entries of the Estate of June Elbery at 6-28-17, there is no filing by Attorney James A. McLaughlin in the month of June 2017. However, Michael Elbery's Objection to McLaughlin's Account is the last docket entry for the Estate of June Elbery.
Michael Elbery reviewed Attorney James A. McLaughlin's Account of the Estate of June Elbery and immediately discovered that McLaughlin was up to more illegal activity. McLaughlin Paid heir, Attorney Kathleen Elbery, a Bribe to keep her quiet because she is an attorney of the Mass. Bar. McLaughlin voided Joyce, David, and Kathleen Apportioned Tax Burden resulting due to the Mass. Estate Tax on their "Designated Accounts" that Robert and Michael Elbery had to pay but received none of the "Designated Accounts". And of course, McLaughlin has been Embezzling cash out of he Estate of June Elbery in the Forms of Fees, although McLaughlin had nothing to do regarding Probated Estate business and McLaughlin did nothing. Attorney James A. McLaughlin took plenty in Fees, in the amount of $13,000.00 after one year of doing nothing but stealing.
Michael Elbery filed a "Notice of Appearance and Objection" to Attorney John A. McLaughlin's one year Account of the Estate of June Elbery. Although as noted in Michael Elbery's cover letter, McLaughlin never filed his "Account" with the Norfolk County Probate Court, let alone the legally mandatory "Petition for Allowance of Account".
Then, within the 30 day filing period, Michael Elbery Filed an Objection to Attorney James A. McLaughlin's Account, Supported by Affidvits, and see the Document List that itemizes the Exhibits in Support of that Objection.
McLaughlin Demands that the heirs Pre-Approve his Stealing
Attorney James A. McLaughlin demanded that the 5 heirs of the Estate of June Elbery sign an "Assent Form" that automatically approves his "Account," signed in advance. That's right, before the heirs were allowed to see his accounting (Fraud) in the form of his "Account" that must be submitted to the heirs and filed with the Norfolk County Probate Court on the 1st Anniversary of the Personal Representatives appointment, McLaughlin demanded that the heirs sign an "Assent of his Account". Signing McLaughlin's "Assent Form" would have created a "Blank Check" for Attorney James A. McLaughlin to maximize his stealing.
Even worse, Attorney James A. McLaughlin threatened heir, Michael Elbery, if he did not sign McLaughlin's Account Assent Form, (see 3rd paragraph). In continued threat, Attorney James A. McLaughlin threatened Michael Elbery with the "Cost of All future Legal Fees and expenses be charged against your account." for refusing to Pre-Approve McLaughlin Account (stealing/Fraud) by signing his Assent Form.
According to the Norfolk County Probate Court docket entries and Clerk's Office, on 7-1-17, there is no record of Attorney James A. McLaughlin filing the "Account" of the Estate that is due at the one year Anniversary (May 31, 2017) of McLaughlin's Appointment as Personal Representative. Also see the Norfolk County Probate Court docket entries at 7-6-17; there is No Account filed by Attorney James A. McLaughlin. McLaughlin has good reason not have filed his "Account" with the Norfolk County Court and that is because McLaughlin exposes his amateur Fraud on his "Account" which includes a fraudulent accounting entries, so he could make a pay-off to heir, Attorney Kathleen Elbery, in order to keep her quiet. As well, McLaughlin's Account includes illegal payments in the amount of $4009.58 to David, Joyce and Kathleen. McLaughlin is using the old "Divide and Conquer Tactic" but it only takes one heir to "Object" and expose the illegalities of McLaughlin's "Account" of the Probate Estate of June Elbery.
The law doesn't change just because Attorney James A. McLaughlin bribed the other 4 heirs of June Elbery.
Attorney McLaughlin's Illegal Involvement in the Estate Real Estate
Attorney James A. McLaughlin admitted to Michael Elbery that he was involving himself in the sale of the Real Estate of the Estate of June Elbery. When Michael Elbery asked McLaughlin who was paying him for that, McLaughlin responded that he would be taking money out of the Estate Cash to pay himself. However, the House that June Elbery left at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. is not part of the Probated Estate; the house by "Operation of Massachusetts Law" automatically is owned by the 5 heirs. Because it is not part of the Probated Estate, Attorney James A. McLaughlin has No Jurisdiction or Authority over that Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. which has been owned by the 5 heirs, as a matter of Massachusetts Law, when June Elbery died on March 26, 2015. Unbelievably, this Crook McLaughlin has admitted several times in writing that he has NO JURISDICTION, RIGHT, or AUTHORITY to be involved with the Real Estate that was left by June Elbery at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass (see 4th paragraph - "Second" where McLaughlin documents his admission that "I do not have any Authority over the Property".
As Court Appointed Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery, Attorney James A. McLaughlin had NO JURISDICTION or AUTHORITY over the Real Estate left by June Elbery at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.. McLaughlin's authority, as Court Appointed Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery, is limited is limited to the liquidation of the Probated Estate which includes everything else except the Real Estate (personal property, bank accounts, stocks).
The Home Insurance Money that Attorney James A. McLaughlin Extorted and Stole from the Heirs of June Elbery
Attorney James A. McLaughlin contacted by email the 5 heirs of June Elbery informing them that the Home Insurance Policy was expiring and that he, Court Appointed Personal Representative of the Probated part of the Estate was once again doing what he prohibited from doing by Massachusetts Law.
What law was McLaughlin breaking? McLaughlin is prohibited from the Real Estate part of the Estate because McLaughlin, as Personal Representative of the Estate, has Authority and Jurisdiction only over the Probated part of the Estate of June Elbery. What is the Probated part of the Estate? The Probated part of the Estate is the non-Real Estate left by June Elbery, also referred to as the Personal Property comprising of bank accounts, insurance policies, stocks, cars, furniture, household goods. Attorney James A. McLaughlin, as Court Appointed Second Personal Representative of the June Elbery, by the Norfolk County Probate Court, has No Jurisdiction or Authority over the Real Estate at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.. That legal limit and exclusion of Authority and Jurisdiction over the Real Estate also applies to the Norfolk County Probate Court and Norfolk County Probate Judge, John D. Casey. That's right, the Norfolk County Probate Court has No Jurisdiction or Authority over the Estate Real Estate because by "Operation of Mass. Law" the real estate is immediately, upon death of the deceased, owned by the 5 heirs as tenants-in-common and title of the real estate transfers to the 5 heirs.
So why is Attorney James A. McLaughlin sticking his nose in the Home Insurance that was initially put on Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass by the First Personal Representative, Steve Hanna? Because, once again, Attorney James A. McLaughlin is illegally sticking his nose into the Real Estate of the Estate of June Elbery. Steve Hanna, supposedly, had the "right" to put House Insurance on the House during the statutory one year period that allows creditors to come forward and make claim that June Elbery owed them money. However, that one year creditor protection period ended on March 26, 2106 long before Attorney James A. McLaughlin was appointed by the Norfolk County Probate Court on May 31, 2016. No creditors came forward because June Elbery owed no one money or debt.
Attorney James A. McLaughlin unilaterally decided, without any heir asking him to be involved, that he, McLaughlin would force the 5 heirs of June Elbery to pay the renewal of the Home Insurance Police on the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.. McLaughlin sent two emails, one on November 30, 2016 and another Hurry - up email on December 1, 2016, to force the 5 heirs to pay for the renewal of the Home Insurance Policy or be subject to the cost of a "Petition for Partition". That's right, if any one heir did not agree to McLaughlin handling the renewal of the Home Insurance Policy then McLaughlin and the 5 heirs knew that David Elbery's attorney Billy Crowe was lurking in the shadows looking for more ways to make money off the hapless Elberries also known as the heirs of June Elbery.
Michael Elbery agreed over his strongest objection to McLaughlin again being involved in the Real Estate. Michael Elbery is of the opinion that due to the undisputed Corruption of the Norfolk County Court, the Norfolk County Court Judge, John D. Casey, the Norfolk County Probate Court Registrar, McDermott and his Clerk's Office that another crook, Attorney Billy Crowe could, in violation of law, get Judge John D. Casey to find against him, Michael Elbery, via a "Petition for Partition" and its cost of at least $50k to any heir that had to pay for that "Partition" and the cost of Crowe's "Petition for that Partition."
It was getting close to Christmas at December 1, 2016 when McLaughlin extorted the insurance money out the 5 heirs of June Elbery, McLaughlin needed money to by his 3 fat Irish daughters Christmas presents. What happened to the House Insurance?
Six months later at the end of April/May of 2017 the Estate House was put on the Real Estate Market and sold the same day for $750K. An "Offer and Acceptance" was signed and the buyer even made Deposit. The Buyer's attorney decided to show authority (needlessly) and demanded that the "Purchase and Sale" should include that the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. have insurance on it during the few days between the "Purchase and Sale" signing and the date the buyer would newly own the Real Estate; this stupid requirement by the buyer's attorney ended up exposing more of Attorney James A. McLaughlin's documented stealing from the Estate of June Elbery. Attorney James A. McLaughlin stole the money for the Home Insurance out of the Probated Estate Cash that he had passed on to him from Steve Hanna and put the money for Home Insurance money in his pocket.
Due to this new demand by the buyer's attorney for Home Insurance, Michael Elbery was required to contact Correira Insurance in Taunton, Mass. and confirm that House was in fact insured. Correira disclosed that the Home Insurance Policy for 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. expired on December 2, 2016 and that they never heard of, nor do they have any record of an Attorney James A. McLaughlin.
Yes sir, Attorney James A. McLaughlin stole the insurance money while De-Frauding the heirs to the Estate of June Elbery.
Correira Insurance Agency disclosed that the Home Insurance renewal was sent to the first Court Appointed Personal Representative, Steve Hanna. So how did McLaughlin get the insurance renewal documents he used to extort the 5 heirs of the Estate of June Elbery? Steve Hanna turned those insurance renewal documents making it all possible for Attorney James A. McLaughlin to Extort and steal from the 5 heirs.
Michael Elbery informed the buyer's attorney, Cecala, that there is no Home Insurance because the same attorney who is demanding the heirs of June Elbery sign his Assent Form for his "Petition to Sell our Real Estate" also stole the Home Insurance money he took out the Probated Estate Cash.
Robert Elbery found it hard to believe that Attorney James A. McLaughlin could be so stupid and make it so easy to get caught stealing. Robert Elbery inquired to Attorney James A. McLaughlin about the Home Insurance and the money he demanded from the 5 heirs six months earlier. Attorney James A. McLaughlin, by email, again lied and told Robert Elbery that he, McLaughlin, thought Attorney Kathleen Elbery "took care" of the Home Insurance. Robert Elbery then contacted fellow heir, Kathleen Elbery, and she said that McLaughlin is lying and she got ripped-off by McLaughlin's Home Insurance scam like all the other heirs.
After getting caught red-handed extorting, lying and stealing what does Attorney James A. McLaughlin do? He acts like nothing happened and on 5-11-17 advises the heirs to the Estate of June Elbery they need Home Insurance on their Estate House (see 2cd to last paragraph from bottom).
Attorney James A. McLaughlin uses a Legal Loophole to Snuff the Sale of the heirs Estate House - McLaughlin fails to Get the Loot
Attorney James A. McLaughlin snuffed the Sale of the Estate House inherited and owned by the 5 heirs as tenants-in-common at 168 Fairfield St. Needham, Mass.. The Estate House left by June Elbery to the 5 heirs was not part of the Probated Estate as a matter of Mass. Law., that means, as per Mass. Probate Law, that the Probate Court, Judge, and the Probated Estate Personal Representative, Attorney James A. McLaughlin, have NO JURISDICTION or AUTHORITY over the that Estate House, as McLaughlin acknowledged and admitted in writing.
However, McLaughlin had a trick up his sleeve, so to further ROB the heirs of June Elbery. The Estate House was finally listed in April of 2017 with a local Realtor in Needham, Mass. and sold in one day for full asking price plus another $10k or for total Agreed written "Offer and Acceptance" of $750,000.00. Everything for the first time in 2 years was great with the 5 heirs and their inheritance, and then Attorney James A. McLaughlin "put his foot in the door at the last second" and totally took over the House Sale by demanding the heirs' attorney, Attorney Charles Long of Needham, Mass. (hired by the 5 heirs, only, for sale of the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.), have the 5 heirs sign an "Assent Form", so that McLaughlin could Petition the Probate Court for his "License to Sell the Real Estate" (the heirs house at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.). Attorney Charles Long of Needham, Mass. did a lot of lying to try and persuade the heirs to sign the "Assent Form" so that Attorney McLaughlin would be unobstructed in his quest to get a "License to Sell the Real Estate" at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. from the Probate Court; if Attorney James A. McLaughlin had been issued a "License to Sell the Real Estate" from the Probate Court, he would have been able to step in and grab the $750,000.00 from the House Sale. Attorney Charles Long tried to convince Michael Elbery that McLaughlin promised him that he would immediately turn the check over to him, attorney Charles Long, and Long promised that McLaughlin would immediately distribute all the $750,000.00 to the Five heirs. Michael Elbery fired Long immediately after that insulting lie; Michael Elbery didn't need an attorney to represent him, but only agreed to Attorney Long to expedite the House Sale. Michael Elbery has done many real estate sales without an attorney of the Mass. Bar representing him.
But nothing should surprise you about Attorney Charles W. Long of Needham, Mass.! Attorney Charles W. Long was stupid enough to document in his cover letter to the "Assent" he tried to trick the heirs of June Elbery into Signing that the "Land Court still insists that a License to sell be allowed". The Land Court had nothing to do with anything concerning McLaughlin's Assent that Long tried to trick the heirs of June Elbery into signing. Michael Elbery immediately fired long and reminded Attorney Charles W. Long that he was fired was because he pulled every trick in the book to get the heirs of the Estate of June Elbery to sign the Assent Form so that his buddy, Attorney James A. McLaughlin, could be issued a "License to Sell the Estate Real Estate" at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass., so McLaughlin could step in and grab the $750K from the proceeds of the already completed Estate House Sale.
Not only was Attorney Charles W. Long full of deliberately misleading malpractice regarding the heirs and the Estate of June Elbery and his ineffective assistance of counsel surrounding the Real Estate at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. that he was hired by the 5 heirs of June Elbery to represent as their seller's attorney, but Attorney Long failed to tell the 5 heirs of June Elbery that they had a right to Object to Attorney James A. McLaughlin's "Petition for License to Sell the Real Estate" should McLaughlin gone ahead and attempted the alternative method of obtaining his "License to Sell Real Estate" from the Norfolk County Judge by way of Newspaper Notification.
Michael Elbery, as always, acted for the best interest of the Estate of June Elbery and therefore the heirs to that Estate. Michael Elbery immediately warned the other heirs that Attorney James A. McLaughlin is queering our deal and intends to step in and grab the $750,000.00 for the house sale at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. that he no part in. Michael Elbery stated that Attorney Charles W. Long declared that Attorney James A. McLaughlin would be taking all the money from the proceeds of the Estate House so he, Michael Elbery, would never sign that Assent Form so that Attorney James A. McLaughlin could get his "License to Sell our Real Estate" from the Norfolk County Probate Court.
With all the lying and stealing that Attorney James A. McLaughlin has engaged in during his appointment as Personal Representative of the Probated Estate of June Elbery, why would any heir not take Michael Elbery's lead and absolutely refuse to sign the Assent form. It is suicide to let Attorney James A. McLaughlin get his hands on the house sale proceeds of $750,000.00; Attorney James A. McLaughlin will do some Big Stealing and the Courts would care less.
Joyce Elbery was the only heir to sign the "Assent Form," so McLaughlin could grab the $750K check. Joyce Elbery agreed to sign the Assent Form because Attorney Charles Long told her that "the buyer's attorney wanted to make sure that all the Estate Expenses were paid off." At that point in time, there were no expenses to be paid by the Probated Estate of June Elbery; there was only Cash in the Probate Estate Bank Account that had not been Distributed to the heirs by the first appointed Personal Representative, Steve Hanna. Joyce Elbery quickly signed the "Assent Form" claiming per phone call that she "didn't see any problem with that". With all the help that has been provided free of charge to heir, Joyce Elbery, regarding the Estate of June Elbery, she acts like she is brain dead. She has reached that point, in part, because Attorney James A. McLaughlin has bribed Joyce Elbery with an illegal $4009.58 payment to agree with McLaughlin and obstinately, as usual, ignore the truth from the other heirs, who have correctly advised her and saved her a small fortune at the hands of the lawyer she needed because she is not intelligent enough to solve the legal problems the Estate has caused.
In other words, Joyce Elbery was desperately in need of an attorney as an heir to the Estate of June Elbery, but was saved those legal fees (probably would have been charged $25k) because Michael Elbery helped her. Joyce Elbery is a double-crosser.
Initially, in March of 2015, when Joyce Elbery "came up from Florida" when mother June Elbery died, Joyce was quick to "get the ball rollin'" (Joyce wanted all the money, including getting rid of Robert Elbery), and she realized in short time that she needed legal counseling regarding the Estate of June Elbery. Joyce had a consultation with Attorney Greg "Gooney Bird" Condon of Pickering St., Needham, Mass. regarding the cost of Legal Counseling Joyce needed concerning her Inheritance. Per Joyce, Attorney Greg "King of Hearsay" Condon wanted a $15K retainer (see more on Condon below). Initially, Joyce and David Elbery were working as a team for about 3 days after mother, June Elbery, died. The two, David and Joyce, decided they were going to speak to a Probate Judge at Norfolk County Court to figure out how to get their money as fast as possible. These two idiots didn't even know where the Probate Court was, they thought it was still in Dedham. Michael Elbery told Joyce Elbery that the Norfolk County Probate Court is in Canton, Mass.
David Elbery was fabricating that Michael Elbery was in "parts in unknown" and therefore, should not receive a 1/5 share of the inheritance left by June Elbery.
Attorney James A. McLaughlin did not bother to try the alternative method of applying to the Probate Court to issue him a "License to Sell the Real Estate" at 168 Fairfield St. Needham, Mass., as Attorney Charles Long of Needham, Mass. threatened Michael Elbery would happen if the heirs did not sign over their rights to McLaughlin on the $750K house sale via signing the "Assent Form". Attorney Long pointed out that the alternative method for McLaughlin to apply to the Probate Court for his "License to Sell the Real Estate" was to put a Notice in the Newspaper's legal section. However, what Attorney Charles Long left out in order to deceive Michael Elbery was that the "License to Sell Real Estate" by a Personal Representative is only used so that the proceeds can pay for the debts of the Probated Estate. There was no debt and no creditors of June Elbery when she died on March 26, 2015, so there was no reason, other than McLaughlin's continued EMBEZZLEMENT from the heirs and Estate of June Elbery, to get his "License to Sell the Real Estate" which would have been "Objected" by the heirs and not even McLaughlin's buddy, John S. Casey, would allow McLaughlin that License, so McLaughlin could STEAL more money. Sadly, for the plans of Attorney Charles Long and Attorney James A. McLaughlin, Michael Elbery can read law books better than they and looks forward to the day when he can meet them "head on" to Argue Law and Evidence before a Jury in an Open Court, so to make fools of these "2 paper pushing duds".
Michael Elbery celebrated when the time ran out so Attorney James A. McLaughlin became legally prohibited from Petitioning the Probate Court for his "License to Sell Real Estate" so that he, McLauglin, would have one less venue to steal from the Estate of June Elbery. That's right, the second Personal Representative is prohibited from Petitioning for a License to Sell Real Estate after 6 months from the date of his Bond. This is a simple calculation, except in the case of Attorney James A. McLaughlin and his appointment as the second, and needless, Personal Representative of the Probated Estate of June Elbery because Attorney James A. McLaughlin was a legally appointed bandit by the Norfolk County Probate Court and allowed not to have Bond for his first 6 months of needless appointment as Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery. Michael Elbery knew that Norfolk County Probate Court Judge John D. Casey would bend the rules for his fellow Irishman and start counting the 6 months when McLaughlin was forced to put up Bond when Michael Elbery complained to the Norfolk County Probate Court.
See below, under the section "Attorney Greg Condon "The King of Hearsay" and Attorney Condon's Verbal Real Estate Sale" for more Illegal Participation in the Real Estate by Attorney James A. McLaughlin. Where Attorney James A. McLaughlin's advises the 5 heirs of June Elbery to Accept a "Verbal Hearsay Real Estate Offer" from Attorney Greg "Gooney Bird" Condon.
I. (November 2015 - May 31, 2016) Norfolk County Probate Court - Appoints State Worker, Steve Hanna, Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery
State Worker, Steve Hanna, and his $225/hr. clerical job
Massachusetts Judicial Employee - Steve Hanna was appointed Personal Representative on 11-16-15 by Mass. Probate Judge Casey to probate (liquidate) the Estate of June Elbery.
After a half year of Needless litigation caused by David Elbery's illegal appointment as Personal Representative (PR liquidates the Estate) by Norfolk Probate Court Judge Casey, the Probate Court appointed Mass. State Worker, Steve Hanna, to liquidate the Probated Estate and distribute the Cash to the Heirs. David Elbery and his big shot $500.00 hr. attorney, "Billy Boy" Crowe, lost all the litigation they filed as opposed by Michael Elbery. Michael Elbery never attended any hearings of that litigation which he won by defeating Attorney Crowe and his big spending (on needless & worthless legal fees) David Elbery. The only thing accomplished during that litigation is that Attorney Billy Crowe emptied David Elbery's pockets, turning him upside down while Dave Elbery's brain spun with legal "advice" from Crowe.
Court Appointed Personal Representative - Steve Hanna disdains the rights of the Individual - Officially Causes Trouble between Heirs
Steve Hanna's first official act as Court Appointed Personal Representative was to phone, only one heir, Michael Elbery. Hanna explained, "the reason you are the only one of the 5 heirs to be contacted by me is because you "Objected" to David Elbery as Personal Representative" to liquidate the Estate of June Elbery. Hanna doesn't understand the Rights of the Individual and doesn't like the idea of anyone exercising their rights under the law (Mass. Probate Law mandates the right to "Object" to another heir as Personal Representative). Hanna is a typical Government Worker, who no matter how lowly, gets their "bread buttered" by obedience and compliance, not to law, but to the Court, Bar, Government, "The Agenda". Attorney Michael Crowe had David Elbery's appointment as Personal Representative rigged with the Presiding Judge at Norfolk County Probate Court, John D. Casey and Hanna didn't like the idea of Michael Elbery spoiling their rig job.
Hanna's Highlights as Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery
The highlights of Steve Hanna's control of the liquidation of the Probated Estate of June Elbery was 3 vacations, Hanna quit twice, his hourly State imposed fee was $225.00/hr.. Hanna also lived in Westport, Mass. which caused a $500.00/hr. charge to the Estate of June Elbery for his travel time for Hanna's generic services every time Hanna had to conduct Estate business and travel to Needham and, or Norfolk County. All the Probated Estate business (liquidation of various bank accounts and stock and insurance of June Elbery) was conducted by Hanna in Norfolk County. That's right, it was over an hour driving time, each way, for Hanna to travel from Westport, Mass. to the Needham, Mass. area, so he could conduct his Court appointed business as Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery, and each of his many round trips cost the Estate and heirs $500.00. This was, of course, done deliberately by Norfolk County Judge Casey, so to bleed the maximum cash out of the Estate; Judge Casey could have appointed a Personal Representative who lived in the Needham, Mass. area.
A paralegal is paid, at most, $25.00/hr. and does far more sophisticated work than what Hanna did regarding the Liquidation/Probate of the Estate of June Elbery. Just another example of how the Government works against the citizen. The Courts will claim they are not Government, but they are lying.
Steve Hanna quits after being Reprimanded for Causing Trouble
Hanna first quit in December of 2015, after about 30 days appointment as Court Appointed Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery. Hanna was trying to cause trouble between Michael Elbery and David Elbery. Hanna was running back to Attorney Billy Crowe and reporting anything that he, Hanna, could provoke Michael Elbery to say about David Elbery, including what was submitted by Michael Elbery in his "Affidavits in Support of his Objection to David Elbery as Personal Representative for the Estate," as filed with the Norfolk County Court.
What was Hanna's job? The Liquidation of the Estate simply required Hanna to open an Estate Checking Account and transfer the contents of several bank accounts, and sell the shares of one Stock and deposit the proceeds to the Estate Bank account, (the Liquidation), so Hanna could, in turn, distribute the Estate cash (write checks) to the heirs. How utterly burdensome, according to a spoiled State Worker.
Oh, Steve Hanna also had to be present when June Elbery's safe-deposit box was opened by a Lock Smith in a bank in Needham Center. No one knew where the keys where, they were never found! The cost of opening the safe-deposit box was about $2,000 to the Probated Estate, most of that cost was due to Hanna's fees for standing there watching the Lock Smith work. Steve Hanna reported the safety-deposit box was empty. Did David Elbery find those safe-deposit keys while he searched June Elbery's house at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. for two days? According to Joyce Elbery, David Elbery tried to clean out one of June Elbery's bank account at the Middlesex Bank in Needham Center but the Bank Manager prevented him from making any withdrawals.
Steve Hanna is paid by the Estate to Kill the Estate of June Elbery
Hanna decided to crusade his own cause which was an attempt, like he had rabies, to find debt that would break the Estate of June Elbery and make it worthless. Steve Hanna had numerous phone conversations with heir Michael Elbery, and Hanna desperately questioned about the existence of extended care for June Elbery. Hanna exclaimed, "I've seen it before, the whole Estate is vaporized" (by medical nursing home care before death)! Hanna searched with enthusiasm for Death Care for the deceased that did not exist; Hanna contacted local elder care facilities, hospitals, and nursing homes, trying to find massive extended health care costs that had not been paid. It was explained to Hanna by many of the heirs that June Elbery died suddenly and was not in a Nursing Home or even a Hospital. The heirs did not want Hanna running around with his "head cut off" looking for fictitious medical debts of June Elbery because Hanna was charging the Probated Estate $225.00/hr for his delusional hunt for debt that he had no reason to believe existed. Heir to the Estate, Kathleen Elbery, showed Steve Hanna all the medical insurance including Extended Care Medical Insurance that would cover nursing homes. To Hanna's dismay there was no debt of any kind due from June Elbery or her Estate.
Hanna never gave up on the idea that he could break the $1.6Million Estate and Designated Accounts even after Hanna was shown multiple medical insurance policies and a Long Term Elderly Care Insurance Policy; none of those policies were used as the deceased, June Elbery, died suddenly at home from causes unknown. But Steve Hanna knew all this before he searched fanatically in vein for medical and nursing home debt of June Elbery that by definition could not Exist, there was insurance!
Hanna's $7,000.00 Fee to Abort the House Sale
Hanna's next trick was the threat of a "Petition for Partition" . Hanna used the threat of an Auction of the Estate House via a Probate Court Controlled "Petition for Partition" to get the 5 heirs to sign away their rights and Agree to give him "unfettered control" of the Sale of the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.
That's right, Hanna convinced us that we should allow him to sell our Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. and he would only charge us his regular hourly fee of $225/hr. for his efforts to sell our inherited house. Hanna knew that the heirs were divided and some, like David Elbery and Kathleen Elbery, had their own divisive motives. Hanna took advantage of the fact that the heirs, at that point in time of January 2015, would not agree on anything, including a realtor to sell the Estate House.
Any of the 5 heirs who didn't agree with Hanna's Sale of the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. was threatened by Hanna with the cost of a "Petition for Partition" that Hanna claimed would cost that heir over $50,000.00 to the heir who disagreed. The cost of a "Petition for Partition" would include the filing of the "Petition" by one of the heirs or the heir's attorney, most likely Attorney Billy Crowe, who would want at least $25k to draft and file the simple legal forms; also required for a "Partition" of Real Estate by the Court is a Court Appointed Commission, who would be Attorney James A. McLaughlin and he would want at least $20K in fees for doing next to nothing. The other costs incurred to complete the "Partition" is the cost of the appraisers, auctioneers, and various sheriffs and State Workers, who all get a "piece of the action". The house would be sold at Auction and would likely be a rig job, yielding far less in Sales Proceeds than an the open real estate market. All 5 heirs agreed to have Steve Hanna sell the house at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. and signed a contract with him.
State Worker's, Steve Hanna's, aborted House Sale was a new experiment in Commerce. When it comes to business and free commerce the State Worker is worse than a Communist. The Massachusetts State Worker is helpless to engage in the free market because the STATE spoils the state worker at the taxpayer's expense. The state worker is not required to deal with the real world or the realities of business which a home sale qualifies. The State Worker is a Social Parasite who is not required to produce a profit, the State Worker is not required to show production for his State Worker's pay check, pension, and a cornucopia of benefits in addition to his pay check.
The only thing that could be said about Hanna and his waste of the heirs' time and money due to being tricked into having Hanna take total contracted control of the Estate house sale is that at least he understood that a Real Estate Sale had to be documented in writing. Steve Hanna didn't do anything right regarding the sale of the Estate House left by June Elbery at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. because his only Objective was padding his time sheet, so to charge the Estate/Heirs another $7K for screwing the house sale up and being LAZY. Everything about the House Sale was at State Worker's, Steve Hanna's, Convenience. No Weekends, no Answering a Phone, Hanna let the potential buyer wait until he, Hanna, was ready during Hanna's 9-5 workday schedule before returning the few e-mail inquiries that resulted from Ads in the newspapers. After all Hanna works for the STATE and the STATE worker can never be wrong. And Hanna's sale of the house at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. was limited to the 9 weeks between December and March of 2016 which was the time between Hanna's 2 Vacations.
Steve Hanna's "Realtor Friend" in the Needham Area wants a "Quick Sale" at Expense of Heirs
Initially, Hanna claimed, per phone conversation to Michael Elbery, to have contacted a "realtor friend" in the Needham area and he had a "Comp Value" of $420K for the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.. Yes sir, Hanna was immediately stopped by Michael Elbery and instructed Hanna that he should view comparable Needham Mass. Real Estate sales. Michael Elbery instructed Hanna that information is plentiful on the Internet, that the house was worth a minimum of $650K. According to conversation between Michael Elbery and the Town of Needham Building Inspector, "Tear Down houses" in Needham, Mass. were going between $700K -$900K.
Hanna was defeated in his scam with "a Realtor Friend" to sell, at a huge discount of $420K, the Estate House for what would have been Hanna's quick profit in the amount of about $250K. Hanna would never admit, again, when reminded by Michael Elbery, to this Fraudulent Scheme with his "Realtor Friend in the Needham Area". $420K would have made such a nice "Flip" in quick time.
What antics did Steve Hanna pull specifically ? Once Hanna got the 5 heirs to sign his sales contract, Hanna stopped relying on heir, Michael Elbery, for directions, information, guidance and strategy. Hanna made deliberate reckless errors that Michael Elbery would have prevented him from doing. For instance, Hanna spent $2K on a small Ad in the Boston Sunday Globe. Hanna listed ads in a Boston Suburban newspaper that included an add on that newspaper's Web Site, but the add had the house at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. listed at $65, 000,000.00.
Steve Hanna does not Answer the Phone
But here is the essence of the State Worker that is Steve Hanna. All the ads he put in the newspaper listed a contact E-mail, no phone number. That's right, a potential buyer would have to go to the extra aggravation of sending an E-mail to answer the Ad. Then, they would receive an answer when Hanna got around to it, which was as slow as possible and at Hanna's convenience.
Steve Hanna made sure NO ONE Knew the Estate House was For Sale
Steve Hanna never even put a "For Sale" sign on the front lawn of the house at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.. Of course Hanna's alleged attempted sale of the Estate House never had a "For Sale" sign on the front lawn because he could have cared less about selling that house as he contracted to sell; Hanna was just fraudulently racking up his $225.00/hr. fees to pay for his next vacation. A For Sale Sign on the front lawn of our Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. would have resulted in inquires about the sale of the house which exactly what Steve Hanna wanted to avoid. A For Sale Sign is also a little to High Tech for State Worker Steve Hanna.
Steve Hanna and his Monday Morning Open House - Cancelled without Notice to Tuesday Morning!!?
No it was not a Holiday Monday!! Steve Hanna had an Open House (Fiasco) advertised in the newspaper Ads. Only a State Worker would have the nerve to have an Open House for the sale of the Estate House on a Monday Morning!! And also shamelessly take pay to run the Open House. That's what a State Worker does, inefficiency and waste, no production and accountable to no one. Worse, because Hanna lived one hours' drive away next to Fall River in the town of Westport, Mass. he wanted to make sure that everything was "just right" for his commute to Needham, Mass. to run the Monday morning "Open House". Hanna decided that the snow flurries that day would cancel the Open House, but nobody else knew about the Cancellation but Hanna. As well, Nobody knew Hanna rescheduled the Open House to the next Tuesday Morning. While the rest of the civilized World was at work, Ace house salesman, Steve Hanna, was having an Open House for our Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.
Steve Hanna Claims there Is No Interest in the House - ( NO ONE KNEW IT WAS FOR SALE)
Hanna got discouraged in quick time, after all he had another vacation coming up in April. Hanna claimed there was "no interest in the Estate House" at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.. Evidently, Hanna got tired of filling out his time sheet charging the Estate of June Elbery and heirs for his hustle, so he could pay for his Spring vacation.
Hanna's alleged sale effort of our Estate House cost the Estate and its Heirs $7K due to Hanna's Malfeasance surrounding Hanna's alleged house sale, also know as FRAUD. That's right, Steve Hanna racked up $7,000.00 in fees at his regular billing rate of $225/hr. to deceive the heirs of June Elbery while Hanna Aborted the Sale of the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.
All the heirs knew they got duped by Hanna and his promises of an easy sale for a house in Needham, Mass. compounded by his fee being only his hourly rate of $225/hr.. The $225/hr. that Hanna was to be paid for selling the Estate house should have been far less than the cost of a Commissioned Realtor, but we didn't know that Hanna was planning Fraud and had no intention of selling our House . Hanna also assured us of his experience in Real Estate, but the reason for some of us signing on with Hanna was Hope because we knew otherwise we could never agree to a realtor to sell the house. Most of the heirs were not even talking to each other, so Hanna provided Hope that the Estate House could be sold without any further personality problems from David Elbery by way of his Attorney Billy Crowe. Hanna knew that some of the heirs were not talking to each other and Hanna took full advantage of the opportunity caused by the needless conflict and hostility between the heirs.
Charlie Donovan paranoia - Steve Hanna is watching
Hanna was so paranoid about his control of his fraudulent house sale scheme that he had all 5 heirs to the Estate of June Elbery sign a contract, whereby, they agreed that Steve Hanna would have "unfettered control" of the sale of the Estate House that he claimed he could sell. That's right, it was Hanna's suggestion that he sell the Estate house and avoid cost to the heirs of a Realtor and related sales costs.
Steve Hanna was paranoid about his Estate House scam and wanted to catch any heir who did not comply with his contracted "unfettered control" of the house sale.. Hanna devised tests to insure compliance by the 5 heirs with his "unfettered control" of the Estate House Sale, and one of those tests was a character named "Charlie Donovan". Donovan contacted only one heir, Michael Elbery, on about December 4th of 2015 by mail. Donovan per his U.S. mail contact introduced himself as a contractor interested in buying existing homes in the Needham, Mass. area. Donovan provided a contact phone number which Michael Elbery used to telephone Donovan. Michael Elbery asked Donavan how he found him in order to send him a letter about buying the Estate House. Donavan claimed that he frequented the Norfolk County Probate Court and found Michael Elbery's name and address in the file information of the Estate of June Elbery.
Michael Elbery doubted Donovan's story because those clerk's in the Norfolk County Clerk's Office would not welcome the general public to examine any of their Probate records, unless the person was a cop. A cop, or not, it became apparent that Donovan was not interested in the Estate House but reporting as to what Michael Elbery said regarding their two conversations and Donovan's fabricated desire to buy the Estate house at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.
Michael Elbery forwarded Charlie Donovan to Steve Hanna, and alerted Hanna to this buyer who wanted to pay more for the Estate House than the asking price of $650,000.00. Hanna made several inquiries to Michael Elbery as to what happened to Donovan, as Hanna claimed Donavan never contacted him. After two phone contacts Donovan declined to return phone calls and disappeared. Donovan's second conversation with Michael Elbery was not well rehearsed and revealed that Donovan was a fraud and was checking to make sure Michael Elbery did not try to make a sale of the Estate House.
Donovan was testing Michael Elbery for Hanna to make sure that Michael Elbery didn't violate Hanna's total and "unfettered control" of his planned Fraudulent sale of the the Estate house. Had Donovan been successful in getting the goods on Michael Elbery for Steve Hanna, Hanna would have immediately cried violation of the sales contract and Attorney Billy Crowe would have initiated a 'Petition for Partition" at Michael Elbery's cost (over $50K according to Hanna).
Attorney Kathleen Elbery Haunts the Estate House
Hanna expressed frustration with heir, Attorney Kathleen Elbery. Kathleen moved into the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. when she was released from Psychiatric Ward at Norwood Hospital a few weeks after 3-26-15, the date of her mother's, June Elbery's, death. Kathleen immediately decided that she had total control of the Estate house and had the Needham Police illegally enforce her rights against the other heirs, who owned the Estate in common with Attorney Kathleen. Particularly disturbing to Hanna was that Kathleen would make "Odd Ball faces and noises" at the very few alleged potential buyers that Hanna showed the house to at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.. People had inquired, if Attorney Kathleen was "haunting the house" and where was her broom?
According to Joyce Elbery, who "came up from Florida" to be at the May 31, 2016 hearing held by the Norfolk County Probate Court regarding the Estate of June Elbery, Attorney Billy Crowe (represents David Elbery) complained in Open Court that Kathleen Elbery was engaging in strange behavior including "noises' and "distorted faces" when Steve Hanna showed the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. to potential buyers. Attorney William "billy" Crowe's point was that Kathleen Elbery was doing everything possible to stop the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. to be sold. Hanna only made two showings of the House that he was hired to sell.
Both Kathleen Elbery and Joyce Elbery have been treated for psychological problems since the 1970's. How is it that Kathleen Elbery has been a licensed attorney with the Massachusetts Bar for decades? Just what you would expect from the members of the Mass. Bar (attorneys), mentally disabled quacks. Kathleen is a Kidney Transplant patient and has since the early 1990's been taking drugs to prevent her immune system from rejecting the donor's kidney; those drugs have an effect on the patient's mental stability in the long run. Kathleen should be pitied.
Attorney Kathleen Has David Elbery Arrested by Needham Cops on Front Lawn of Estate House
Kathleen called the Needham Police on David Elbery when he attempted to get into the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. While the Needham Police illegally had David Elbery at bay face down on the front lawn of the Estate House, Steve Hanna had to travel from Westport, Mass. to rescue Dave, who was ready to mess his underwear because he thought he would be jailed. It cost the Estate/heirs about $700.00 for Hanna to travel to Needham in order to rescue David Elbery from the illegal arrest of the Needham Cops, who decided to grind Kathleen Elbery's axe.
As a matter of law, all 5 heirs are equal owners of the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. and all 5 heirs have equal ownership rights under the law. We own the house as tenants-in-common.
David Elbery vowed to get even with Kathleen Elbery; David Elbery Conspired with Personal Representative, Steve Hanna, to even the score with Kathleen.
Steve Hanna Plots to Steal the Kitchen Table
Hanna taught Kathleen Elbery a lesson. Hanna Admitted that he had no Jurisdiction over the Real Estate (Estate House); this is because Real Estate is not part of the Probated Estate but by "operation of law" becomes owned by the heirs immediately at the time of death of the deceased. However, Hanna exercised his rights over the "Estate personal property" in the house at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.. Hanna's Authority as Personal Representative over the Probated Estate (non-Real Estate) gave Hanna opportunity to plot with David Elbery and Dave's Attorney, Billy Crowe, so David Elbery could get even with heir, Attorney Kathleen Elbery. After all, David Elbery had to go home and change his pooped underwear caused when David Elbery lost bowel Control on the front lawn of the Estate House because the Needham Cops arrested at the order of Attorney Kathleen Elbery. Hanna had Robert Elbery put dibs on the kitchen table in that house, so Kathleen Elbery would not have a place to eat. Robert Elbery beat the insolent Kathleen to the punch, and as one of the heirs Robert claimed the kitchen table as his new possession. Hanna told heir Michael Elbery that Kathleen resisted and complained, "where am I going to eat?" Hanna stated, "we have to get her out of that house". Hanna was taking orders from David Elbery and his attorney of the Mass. Bar, Billy Crowe.
Steve Hanna Afraid of his Master's in the Mass. Bar - "Claims to have talked to Attorney Billy Crowe "Just Once""
Hanna throughout his appointment as Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery claimed he "only talked to Attorney Billy Crowe once". Hanna seemed upset every time he had to even mention Crowe's name. What was Hanna hiding? It is not believable that Hanna only spoke to heir, David Elbery's, attorney, Billy Crowe, just once. David Elbery refused to talk to anyone, David Elbery was pleading his 5th Amendment Rights to remain silent throughout the Probate of the Estate and separate Estate House Sale.
Why does an heir to a simple inheritance as left by June Elbery require an attorney to represent him? Let alone having to remain Silent. David Elbery was the only heir of June Elbery that needed "representation"; David Elbery started the pursuit of his inheritance by hiring Attorney Michael A. Crowe and when Attorney Michael A. Crowe ran away when Michael Elbery told him that he better learn litigation then David Elbery hired Attorney Billy Crowe. Ya, that's right, the Crowe brothers from Needham, Mass.
The Jew C.P.A. and Estate Tax Return is Wrong
Hanna called Michael Elbery by phone and informed him that he was using a "Jew C.P.A." to fill out the Estimated Mass. Estate Tax Return and calculate the Estate Tax. Hanna demanded to know if Michael Elbery had a problem with the Jews? Of course I have a problem with the Jews, see my Web Site on the Kennedy Assassination and The Events of 911. Hanna was using this "Jew CPA" to cause trouble, and to create reason to run and quit, again, claiming Michael Elbery is Anti-Semitic. It should be Anti-Jew because 99% of Semites are Arabs and all hate the Jew, but a brainwashed Hanna doesn't understand that.
Per review of the Estimated Mass. Estate tax documents sent to the Mass. D.O.R. there is no indication of anyone, but Hanna, preparing those tax returns. Hanna was up to one of his schemes to cause some trouble with his fictitious "Jew C.PA".. In the process Hanna calculated the Estate Tax wrong and sent the Mass. D.O.R. incorrect information as to the Estates Gross Value and overstated and overpaid the Mass. Estate Tax.
Hanna would never allow Michael Elbery to see the Mass. Estimated Estate Tax Return or any calculations used to produce that tax return. Hanna filed the Mass. Estate Estimated Tax payment of $65K in December of 2015, supported by Federal and Massachusetts Estate Tax Forms and supporting schedules, and related calculations. The Estate Taxes were paid with a refund to the heirs due; the Estate should have been closed, at latest, in March of 2016, which was one year after the deceased, June Elbery, died and no creditors came forward or ever existed.
Hanna would never forward to Michael Elbery, after repeated requests, the Estate Estimated Tax Return and supporting calculations he submitted to the Mass. D.O.R. Long after Hanna quit for the second time, in April of 2016, Michael Elbery did get, in August of 2016, the Mass. Estimated Estate tax forms from Hanna's successor, Attorney James A. McLaughlin, filed with to Mass. D.O.R. by Hanna and found that Hanna completed the tax calculations/forms and they were done wrong and the Estate/heirs were over taxed
In August of 2016, eight months after Hanna filed the Estate Estimated tax return complete with a $65K check to the State of Massachusetts, who Hanna was so eager to please, Michael Elbery contacted Hanna by phone and told him that he made various mistakes on the Estate Tax Calculations causing the Gross Estate Value to be incorrectly overstated and Hanna's tax calculation and payment to the Mass. DOR to be wrong and overpaid.. Hanna replied by email, "they were just a "back of the envelope slap off the wall Guess"!". This response and attitude by Hanna confirms and highlights that he was an overpaid "jerk off" with a beak instead of a nose, after he paid all that money for his Judo lessons. Somebody showed Hanna how to punch and restructured that honker that is bent all over his face.
Attorney Billy Crowe Does Not Do TAXES - Because Crowe Does Not Know Taxes
Michael Elbery kicked the shit out of little Billy Crowe during each round of various litigation of the Estate of June Elbery. Attorney Billy Crowe lost all litigation while he represented heir David Elbery regarding the Estate of June Elbery . Whether it was Crowe's loss of David Elbery illegal appointment as Personal Representative of the Estate, the Funeral Expenses Dave Elbery wanted to profit from at ther expense of the other heirs, or Crowe's major Brain Fart where Crowe made the most stupid proposal to have Michael Elbery and Attorney John A. McLaughlin allegedly decide who would be the realtor to sell the Estate house and an Estate Attorney who would handle the minor league legal issue involved with the Estate House Sale. The cost of that litigation was nothing to Michael Elbery because he does his own legal work, all victorious against Crowe. But David Elbery had to pay Crowe way more than it was worth from any possible benefit David would have gained if he had won, which he didn't win but lost all the Estate litigation. The Estimated Cost of Attorney Billy Crowe's legal representation regarding the Estate of June Elbery is over $50,000.00.
David Elbery also had to pay Crowe for numerous dialogues, communications, acceptances, approvals required of the heirs concerning Estate business. But the highlight of Attorney William D. Crowe's Representation of David Elbery regarding the Estate of June Elbery was Attorney Billy Crowe accepting the Hughes' Verbal Hearsay Offer on the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.. (read below for more on that Hughes R/E Offer through Attorney Greg Condon)
With all this wasteful Representation by Attorney Billy Crowe, where was David Elbery' big shot Attorney, Billy Crowe, regarding the Estate Tax Return and all Steve Hanna's errors, while producing the simple Mass. Estimated Tax Return. Hanna would not dare refuse Attorney Crowe those Estate Tax Returns! With all that advocacy in the form of Billy Crowe's legal representation, Dave would have been overtaxed, if not for the efforts of his adversary, fellow heir, Michael Elbery, who wouldn't let Dave handle the Estate cash, as Personal Representative, for good reason. That's right, during the entire Probate period, David Elbery has been represented by a $500.00 an hour "jack ass" of an attorney from Boston named Billy Crowe; where was Attorney Crowe regarding the errors Hanna filed on the Estate Estimated Tax Return? Crowe has done nothing but sucker David Elbery for tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees that have been totally needless, unless David Elbery has something to hide and can't take the chance of talking to fellow heirs or anyone else, who are smarter than David Elbery.
During phone conversation with Michael Elbery in February of 2017, Crowe declared he "does not do or know how to do taxes!"
David Elbery is the only one of the 5 heirs of the Estate to be represented by an Attorney; Crowe should have found the mistakes made by Steve Hanna on Estate Tax Return! Not Michael Elbery. No wonder Hanna would not forward heir, Michael Elbery, the Estate tax calculations and Estimated Tax Return that all heirs are legally entitled to have!
Steve Hanna Steals the Estate Financial Records - Hanna Refuses to return Family's Documents
Leave it to Joyce Elbery, one of the heirs to the Estate of June Elbery. Joyce is an Aardvark in many ways, but she out did herself during the period that started with mother's death on 3-26-15 and throughout the Probate of June Elbery's Estate. Joyce and Kathleen Elbery have had psychiatric care since they were teenagers in the 1970's. Joyce suffers from self-esteem problems and tries to compensate for that lack of self-esteem.
June Elbery died on March 26, 2013 according to the Authorities. The Needham, Mass. Police contacted only David Elbery about his mother's death. The Needham Police made no effort to contact any of the other 3 surviving progeny of June Elbery. This caused David Elbery an opportunity to gain advantage over the other heirs to the Estate of June Elbery.
As result of being the only heir notified of June Elbery's death, David Elbery had 2 days to ransack the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.. David Elbery contacted Joyce Elbery, who lives in Florida, on the 27th of March and informed her of the death of June Elbery. Joyce is always a "hard luck case" and found herself looking for plane ticket from Florida to Boston on Easter weekend. Joyce claims she paid over $1,700.00 for an one way plane ticket. Joyce claims to have also searched everything that David Elbery had left strewn all over the Estate house as result of David's two day ransack of the Estate House. Joyce helped herself to the cash in deceased mother's, June Elbery's, pocket book. Joyce claimed it was $100.00 but heir, Attorney Kathleen Elbery, claimed that Joyce actually stole $200.00 from the deceased's pocket book. How Kathleen would know this is not clear because Kathleen was in the Norwood Hospital for 30 days of psychiatric observation at the time and would not be released for weeks after 3-26-15.
Joyce blamed the other heirs for her theft out of her deceased mother's pocket book because when they learned of her helping herself "no one stopped her." It would have been a waste of time trying to stop her from picking the pocket book days earlier.
Joyce initially admitted she had copies of financial records that constituted the financial accounts of June Elbery at her death. Joyce would claim, after she arrived "back in Florida," that somebody stole those same documents, either in Massachusetts or someone broke into her residence in Florida and stole those documents. Joyce admitted nothing else was stolen at her residence, nor was there any sign of a break-in. Joyce refused to assist in compiling the Estate Inventory claiming she "no longer had the financial documents because someone must have stole them." Joyce was afraid that somebody might benefit from the Estate records she copied. Or was the reason something else?
With all that, Joyce decided almost a year later that she desired a "Paper" that she thought was in the Estate House. Why didn't Joyce take that "Paper" when she was helping herself to her dead mother's pocket book cash? Joyce irritated Personal Representative, Steve Hanna, about this "Paper" that Joyce wanted almost a year after the death of June Elbery. Hanna, while at the Estate House in Needham, Mass. claimed he could not locate the "Paper" that Joyce decided, a year later, was so important.
Hanna solved the "Joyce Paper" problem" by absconding with all the Estate financial records from the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.. Hanna claimed he "could not figure out which was the "Paper" that Joyce was desperately demanding", so he grabbed all the papers in the various locations throughout the Estate House." Hanna admitted that, as a result, he had all the financial records of June Elbery, including her bank statements, check book stubs, etc., Hanna stated that the those same Documents "are in "a box" "and that they will all be destroyed."
Michael Elbery demanded the documents that Hanna confiscated from the Estate House and told Hanna he had no right to them, (see second page). Hanna refused and stated that the documents that were June Elbery's, now, were his because he was appointed by the Judge John Casey of the Norfolk County Probate Court. When Michael Elbery again challenged Hanna and demanded that the law requires Hanna to return everything Hanna confiscated from the Estate House, including the documents of June Elbery, Hanna again refused. Michael Elbery told Hanna to show Law that supported Hanna's position that he was entitled to confiscate, control, hold and even destroy the documents that Hanna stole from the Estate House. Hanna produced no such law because there is no law that allows Hanna to steal what belongs to the heirs. Personal Representative, Steve Hanna, was acting illegally and got scared and then claimed that he forwarded the documents he confiscated to the, by that date in August of 2016, to the second Court Appointed Personal Representative, Attorney James A. McLaughlin.
What are in those documents that belong to the deceased, June Elbery, that both Steve Hanna and Attorney James A. McLaughlin do not want Michael Elbery to see? Heir, Michael Elbery, Petitioned the Norfolk County Probate Court, John D. Casey, to order McLaughlin and Hanna to produce those documents and turn them over to the lawfully entitled heirs and Judge Kangaroo Casey didn't have the courtesy to even address that Petition as it was never docketed, as per the docket entries at 10-6-16, let alone sending Michael Elbery and the other heirs a notice of his actions regarding that Petition at the scheduled 9-13-16 hearing on the Estate of June Elbery.
The "Paper" that Joyce wanted Hanna to retrieve and send to her was not financial but she alleged it was a "family tree document".
Leave it to Joyce Elbery to demand a "Paper" that would result in Hanna stealing all the Estate documents from the Estate House of June Elbery. Joyce was also the heir that located Attorney Greg Condon of Needham, Mass.. Condon wanted $15,000.00 to represent Joyce during the Probate of the Estate of June Elbery. Condon was the lawyer who would in about July of 2016 exclaim that Court Appointed Personal Representative, Steve Hanna's, $14,000.00 fee was "way too much for what Hanna did." Joyce decided that because heir Michael Elbery was doing and winning all the necessary legal work required to prevent the Estate from being totally sacked by Attorney Michael and Billy Crowe et al., that she would not pay Condon. Joyce escaped the Attorney Greg Condon's rip-off, but exposed the other heirs and the Estate to this stupid predator, Attorney Greg Condon (read below for more on this Condon).
The second Court Appointed Personal of the Estate of June Elbery, Attorney James A. McLaughlin, refused to produce the Estate Documents stolen by Steve Hanna claiming they did not belong to the heirs but to the Court Appointed Fiduciary (Person Representative McLaughlin) , regardless of Michael Elbery's continued demand that Attorney James A. McLaughlin turn over the financial documents and all papers that belonged to his mother, June Elbery.
Attorney James A. McLaughlin decided that he would produce to Michael Elbery only the Estate Documents Hanna Stole out of the Estate House that he, McLaughlin considered Non-Confidential. Michael Elbery disagreed demanding all the Estate Documents, (see 4th paragraph).
As a matter of Law, those financial Documents of June Elbery belong to the 5 heirs of her Estate, so what is it that these two Crooks, Hanna and McLaughlin, are concealing? They are concealing More Fraud.
Steve Hanna "Paves the Way" for Attorney James A. McLaughlin and McLaughlin's Pre-Planned Court Appointment to Sack the Estate of June Elbery
Hanna had by December of 2015 liquidated the Cash and Personal Property of June Elbery into the Estate Bank Account. He was appointed as PR by the Court in November 2015. He took $7K for his fee to liquidate the Probated Estate of June Elbery. Hanna Distributed most of the cash to the heirs in January of 2016, but set aside and left $60K in the Estate Bank Account, so Attorney James A. McLaughlin could be appointed, as pre-planned by the Court, to be the Second PR of the Estate of June Elbery and take his "cut of the action" which was the remaining balance of Estate Cash. There was no reason to keep the Estate of June Elbery Open other than to provide a means for Attorney James A. McLaughlin to steal money from the Estate so he could provide for his 3 fat Irish daughters.
In addition to his $7K fee he took for liquidating the Probated Estate, Hanna made $7,000.00 for his alleged attempt, scam, to sell the house at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. and decided he was at the end of his rope and quit at the end of March 2016 as Court Appointed Personal Representative for the Estate of June Elbery. Hanna tired quickly of having to even entertain the further thought of the work involved in selling the house, even though he was doing nothing to sell the Estate House. The heirs were lucky that Hanna quit and violated his contract to sell the Estate House, otherwise there would have been thousands of more dollars thrown away on Lazy Man Steve Hanna Fees. Hanna got tired when he secretly ran up billable hours totally in the amount of $7K for doing nothing to Sell the Estate House. $7,000.00 absconded by Steve Hanna and he produced absolutely NOTHING that remotely came close to a sales effort to sell the Estate House, but that is normal for a Government Worker. Steve Hanna had a vacation in April 2016 and ran off with the $7K he stole from the Elbery's to fraudulently sell their Estate House.
For his fraudulent $7,000.00 fee, Hanna never came close to selling the Estate House at 168 Fairfield st. Needham, Mass. but he never intended to sell the house, just run up a billable hours at $225/hr. before the lazy State Worker got tiered of embezzling. Hanna did forward one low-ball Offer from his friend for $580K, which all the heirs immediately rejected. Steve Hanna had no right to help himself to $7k out of the Probated Estate Cash for his aborted Sales attempt at Selling the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.. There was nothing in the contract between Hanna and the heirs of the Estate of June Elbery that allowed Hanna to take $7K out of the Probated Estate Cash for the his alleged home sales Fee. As the Court Appointed Personal Representative of the Estate he had No Jurisdiction, nor does the Norfolk County Probate Court have Jurisdiction over the Estate House. The Probated Estate that Hanna took the $7k from was legally a separate Jurisdiction from the the Real Estate (Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.) of the Estate of June Elbery.
At this point in time, April 2016, the Estate was over a year old and the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. was never on the Real Estate Market. Nobody knew the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. was "For Sale". A simple marketing problem that should never have happened, except for the fact that a simpleton thief, State Worker Steve Hanna, was fraudulently in charge of that house sale. Hanna's Estate House scheme also deprived the heirs of the opportunity to have the Estate House listed by a realtor during peak season for "Tear Down Houses" by local homebuilders.
Steve Hanna had agreed, long before the heirs to the Estate of June Elbery ever heard of an Attorney James A. McLaughlin, to "Pave the Way" for the sacking of the Estate of June Elbery via McLaughlin's Appointment by the Norfolk County Probate Court Judge, John D. Casey. Over a year had passed since the Death of June Elbery on March 26, 2015 and at May 31, 2016 Steve Hanna made sure not to distribute, as required by Mass. law, the remaining Cash to the 5 heirs. Instead, Steve Hanna needlessly left $60,000.00 Cash in the Probated Estate of June Elbery, so that Attorney James A. McLaughlin would have plenty to Steal.
The first Court Appointed Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery, Steve Hanna, made sure Attorney James A. McLaughlin had no work to do, as the second Court Appointed Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery. This "old Fart" McLaughlin does not like any heavy lifting, McLaughlin is a "friend of the Court" and his stealing from pre-approved Estates like June Elbery's has to made easy. Steve Hanna made sure there was no liquidation of the Probated Estate of June Elbery left to be done. Hanna used the junk remnants of the "toy train set" in the Estate House cellar as a false excuse to keep the Probated Estate Open; Hanna even spent $500 on an Appraisal of the trains before McLaughlin took over as the second Court Appointed Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery. That is all that the Crooks claimed was left to liquidate before they could close the Probated Estate of June Elbery. McLaughlin asked the heirs for bids on the "toy train set" and he received a $1.00 bid from Michael Elbery and that $1 bid was the highest bid for the "toy trains" in the Estate House cellar which were nothing but the remains of the train set that no one wanted over the previous decades. Steve Hanna could have just as easily asked for bids from the heirs, as McLaughlin did, and then closed out the Probated Estate of June Elbery and then Distributed the remaining Cash. However, Hanna had to leave something so to give the Court even the most stupid reason to appoint McLaughlin the Second Personal Representative so he could Sack the Estate of June Elbery. That stupid something was the train set in the cellar of the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.
Although Attorney James A. McLaughlin asked for bids on the "toy train set" and received a high bid of $1.00 from Michael Elbery, McLaughlin ignored that $1.00 high bid made on September 1, 2016. At this writing of July of 2017, McLaughlin ignores that same $1 bid so he can have a lying excuse to keep the Probated Estate of June Elbery Open, so that McLaughlin can fulfill his objective of Stealing all the money that was turned over to him by Steve Hanna with the approval of the Probate Court Judge Casey.
One of the reasons Steve Hanna made no effort to sell the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass., and actually avoided the Sale of the Estate House (violation of Contract see you in court Hanna) was to make sure it was there for Attorney James A. McLaughlin's Fraud and more Stealing. True, the Estate House was not part of the Probated Estate (personal property) of the Estate of June Elbery, but just as Hanna found ways to trick and deceive the heirs of June Elbery regarding the Estate House, so has Attorney James A. McLaughlin scammed to illegally profit/steal via the Estate House. So far McLaughlin has failed in his attempt to get his "cut" from the Estate House.
Even the Mass. Estate Tax was subject to a plan between Hanna and McLaughlin. As usual, Hanna did the work and completed the Mass. Estimated Estate Tax Return and filed it with Mass. D.O.R., with a $65k check to the State of Massachusetts. Hanna deliberately miscalculated the "Estate Gross Asset Value" on that tax return causing the $65K to be an overpayment of tax and refund to be due of approximately $3K. When McLaughlin took over the Probated Estate of June Elbery he decided that the Estate Taxes were underpaid and he made, upon his Court Appointment as Personal Representative, another payment in the amount of $10K to the Mass. D.O.R. claiming that the Estate could be Underpaid in taxes. In the interim, Michael Elbery finally got McLaughlin to turn over the Estate tax Returns prepared by Hanna and Michael Elbery discovered that Hanna overstated the Estate value and that way too much tax was paid in and that there was a $12K Refund due the Estate/heirs. McLaughlin refused to disclose that he recieved that $12K refund in October of 2106 even when he boasted that the Mass. D.O.R. had accepted the Estate Tax Return and that the Estate Tax was finalized.
It took an indictment of Attorney James A. McLaughlin by Michael Elbery to get McLaughlin to Confess to having the Refund and putting it back in the Estate funds. McLaughlin thought the heirs of the Estate of June Elbery were all stupid.
II. More Illegalities in the Kangaroo Court of Judge Kangaroo John D. Casey - The 5-31-16 Appointment of Attorney James A. McLaughlin to Forever Steal until all the Estate $$$ is Gone
Kangaroo Judge John D. Casey started off the Probate of the Estate of June Elbery by rigging the Appointment of David Elbery as Personal Representative of the Estate. Judge Kangaroo Casey has overseen all the continuous illegalities, as alerted herein and via the docketed filings, but Kangaroo Casey will not be discouraged. Hanna quit as Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery because he claims that there is a "lack of cooperation by the heirs of the Estate and that he was not loved", so Norfolk County Probate Judge, John D. Casey, decided to appoint a successor. That's right, Hanna is allowed to quit any time he so desires without answering to anyone; a totally independent asshole State Worker/Court Appointee. A May 31, 2016 Hearing is set at the Norfolk County Probate Court in Canton, Mass. to needlessly appoint another Personal Representative to finish the probate of the Estate of June Elbery. Needless because there was nothing left to do but finish distributing what was left of Estate Cash in the amount of $60,000.00 to the 5 heirs. But the Court and Hanna had it all planned, they were in control of that money and they had no intention of giving up that Jurisdiction on the Estate of June Elbery until they clipped some more of that easy money.
The only reason Hanna quit is so he had an excuse to not finalize and close the Estate of June Elbery, which he could have easily have done by distributing the balance of the Estate cash to the 5 heirs. The law required that Hanna finish distributing the Estate cash and close the Estate of June Elbery but Hanna, and fellow crook and Kangaroo, Judge John D. Casey, were up to another Scheme. The Estate of June Elbery was planned to be left open, so a second Personal Representative, Attorney James A. McLaughlin, could be appointed by the Court, all so McLaughlin could steal money from the Estate in the form of his needless fees. Attorney's of the Mass. Bar like James A. McLaughlin can't make a living as a lawyer unless the Court hands them appointed cases. Attorney McLaughlin is a Social Parasite.
That's right, the only reason Hanna quit, after he got his "cut" via his fraudulent Estate House Sale, was so the Norfolk County Probate Judge, John D. Casey, could have excuse to Appoint Attorney James A. McLaughlin the second, and needless, Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery. McLaughlin is a "friend of the Court" and is favored for easy money by wasteful Court Appointments, so McLaughlin can make a legal fee, in other words steal from the rightful heirs.
Oh, the crooks and thieves will scream that the Estate must remain open until the Estate House is sold. The year has passed since the death of June Elbery on 3-26-15, and the one year has passed for any creditors to come forward. There were no creditors. The Estate taxes were overpaid in December of 2015 and there is no legal justification for the Probate Court to allow the Estate of June Elbery to be open. Once again, the Probate Court and Judge Casey are prohibited from any jurisdiction over the Estate House because, by law, it belongs to the 5 heirs "owned in common". So what is Attorney James A. McLaughlin's scheme? McLaughlin is incorrectly recalculating the Estate tax return based on his imaged new estimate of the supposed future sale of the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.
Attorney James A. McLaughlin "creates work fraud"
McLaughlin has warned the heirs that the Mass. DOR may not accept his new calculations on the Estate Tax, so be prepared for a "legal battle." Nice, Attorney James "the Crook" McLaughlin is creating a "legal battle" with the Mass. DOR, so that he can steal more money. When Michael Elbery demanded to know the law that allows Judge Casey to maintain jurisdiction of what is left to the Probated Estate ($50K in cash) because McLaughlin decided he would re-file the Estate Tax Return due to his new estimate of the future selling price of the Estate House, Michael Elbery got no response.
Although Attorney McLaughlin, refuses to produce, at September of 2016, his latest and needless version of the Estate Tax Return to Michael Elbery, he has allowed the heirs to know that he has determined that less tax is owed by an amount of about $3000.00 than the amount the first Personal Representative, Steve Hanna paid the Mass. D.O.R. in the amount of $65,000.00. Had McLaughlin stopped his plan of theft from the heirs and Estate and just left the taxes to them as required by law, then when the Estate House is sold (some day in the future) the Estate Tax Return can be re-filed with real numbers and not estimates on the future selling price of the Estate House. You can estimate the taxes owed by the Estate all day long and forever, but until the Estate house is sold the final numbers can never be produced; that's why the State of Mass. D.O.R. (Dept. of Revenue) has provided for an Estimated Tax to be filed by the Estate and a final Estate Tax Return to be filed when the house is sold. Then, there would be, as provided by Mass. tax law, a refund due the Esate because it was already overpaid.
The only number that is used to calculate the Estate Tax is the selling price of Estate House. McLaughlin has changed the Estimated selling price by a few thousand dollars because he forget to deduct estimated selling price from his new future estimated Estate House selling price. The fact of the matter is that until the Estate House is sold you can never finalize the Estate Tax Return. Attorney John A. McLaughlin and the Norfolk County Court have no right to excuse or make claimed justification for their illegal jurisdiction over the Estate of June Elbery due to the Estate Tax Return.
Per the latest statement of the Estate cash, now at September 2016, it has now cost the Estate and rightful heirs approximately $10,000.00 in fraudulent Attorney John A. McLaughlin fees.
Norfolk County Probate Court Judge John D. Casey's Fake Jurisdiction over the Estate House
Judge John D. Casey pulls another one of his illegal Acts and issues Illegal Orders from his Massachusetts Probate Court.
What was this latest illegal Judge Casey Act?
Judge Casey decided he would take Jurisdiction over the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.. The Problem for Judge Kangaroo - Casey is that he had NO LEGAL JURISDICTION over that House on May 31, 2016 because at that date it was simply, under the law, owned by the 5 Heirs of the Estate as "Tenants-in- Common" by Operation of law upon the death of June Elbery on March 26, 2015. That house was not part of the Probated Estate and was never under the jurisdiction of the Norfolk Probate County Court.
However, Law didn't stop Judge Kangaroo - Casey from Ordering Joyce Elbery that she could only enter the Estate House that she owned with the other 4 heirs at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. with his permission and he limited her to two visits and with an advance notice and permission by heir, Attorney Kathleen Elbery, who as above, decided the house was only hers.
That's right, Judge John D. Casey engaged in Unconstitutional Activities by interfering with the private property rights of Joyce Elbery's ownership of the Estate house at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. That house is none of Judge Casey's business and that is the law! Casey is in a habit of getting away with violating citizen's rights; law just gets in his way. The Totalitarianism that is engulfing the American.
The Estate House is owned in common by the 5 heirs to the Estate of June Elbery and is their property; as a matter of Massachusetts Law, the Norfolk Probate Court has no jurisdiction over that same house any more than they did when June Elbery owned it before her death.
As a result, the Probate Court - Judge Casey advocated Attorney Kathleen's illegal conduct at the Estate House. That insane behavior by Kathleen Elbery just further encouraged Kathleen to act illegally at the Estate House claiming it to be only hers and obstructing any chance of selling the Estate House because Kathleen was scaring potential buyers away. Kathleen Elbery gets all the Authorities to embolden her illegal conduct/occupation of the Estate House at 168 Fairfield st., Needham; Kathleen has threatened to call the Needham Police should any of the other 4 heirs even step on the property. Kathleen Elbery threatened to have Michael Elbery arrested should he call the phone at the Estate House; the same phone number at that house since 1954. More than two years have passed since the death of June Elbery, and, Kathleen Elbery still lives in the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass., free of charge, and with the support of the Norfolk County Court - Judge Casey, although Judge Casey had no authority under the law to regulate that Estate House. The other 4 heirs never approved Kathleen living in the house, nor were they asked. The Norfolk County Probate Court illegally approved Kathleen's occupation of the Estate House at 168 Fairfield st., Needham, Mass.
Attorney Kathleen Elbery has been arrested twice by the Needham Police for bad behavior and was committed both times to 30-day Observation in the Insanasylum since she has been living at 168 Fairfield st., Needham, Mass.. Kathleen then leased a Condo at Rosemary Lake Condos, thus living in two places in Needham.
What the Authorities don't want you to know is that all Judges in the U.S.A. are limited in power by law. The Authorities like Judge Casey want the citizens to be blindly afraid of the Courts and Judges so they can engage in their illegalities, prejudices, and schemes with impunity.
See Petition for Judge Casey of the Norfolk County Probate Court to Comply with Jurisdictional Limits
Joyce Elbery reported that Attorney Billy Crowe disclosed in Open court at the 5-31-16 Norfolk Probate Court Hearing that Kathleen was engaging in "Odd-Ball" behavior, and has been in and out of Mental Institutions, and is still a Licensed Member of the Mass. Bar.
After the 5-31-16 Norfolk Probate Court Hearing before Judge Casey, Joyce Elbery had Attorney Greg Condon of Needham, Mass. accompany her to the Estate house she owns with Court Order in hand, so Kathleen Elbery can't have her arrested for being on her own property. According to Joyce Elbery, Attorney Greg Condon made some observations of Kathleen Elbery at the Estate House and concluded Kathleen is mentally ill because Kathleen had all the shades pulled down in the morning hour to keep the World out. Condon should talk about mental illness, but at least he is an expert. (See more on Attorney Greg Condon, below).
At this time Attorney Condon told Joyce Elbery that he had customers to buy the Estate House at $675k, but as it turns out Condon was lying and had no such customers. Joyce Elbery contacted Attorney James A. McLaughlin about this Condon claim and McLaughlin incorporated this Condon claim into McLaughlin's 6-22-16 letter to the heirs. There is good reason why Condon works for a 1% commission.
Michael Elbery's Crusades for Justice - Ignored, Disrespected
You think they would have learned, Superior Court Judge Dan Toomey Dead because of Michael Elbery's revelations of Toomey's illegal trial (lynch mob) conduct, Federal Judge Mark Wolf forced to resign due to his Judicial Crimes as exposed by Michael Elbery, Worcester D.A.'s Office purged and 3 Prosecutors Fired, and Big Shot, Attorney Lou Aloise Blackballed. Now it is Judge John D. Casey's turn to be Scandalized and at the same time cause the Office of Elected Official Norfolk Probate Registrar - Patrick McDermott to be forever tarnished with deliberate illegalities. It ain't supposed to happen in this here U.S.A..
Even Mass. District Attorney - Martha Coakley's election loss as Mass. Governor by a narrow margin of 40,000 was contributed by Michael Elbery's exposure of her criminal Unconstitutional Conduct via the article on Coakley on this Web Site. Just a flip of 20,000 voters would have changed that election outcome. Way more than 20,000 readers saw the documented and undisputed illegalities by Coakley and her lynch mob office of prosecutors via that web site link.

Attorney James A. McLaughlin of South Natick law firm - A Court Appointment to Steal from the Estate
So who did Norfolk County Judge - John D. Casey appoint to take over as the second and needless Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery?
The "Old Boy", Attorney James A. McLaughlin of the South Natick Law firm that features McLaughlin as a "front man" for a bunch of Jew lawyers.
Steve Hanna got tired of stealing money from the Estate Cash of June Elbery, so Judge John D. Casey appointed McLaughlin to take over the stealing.
There was no need for McLaughlin or another Personal Representative because the Estate of June Elbery could have been, as the law requires, "closed out" and the remaining $60k in Estate Cash Distributed to the heirs, in March of 2016, except that lazy Parasites like McLaughlin and his Jewish Law Firm in South Natick have to get a "cut of the Action" via Court Appointments.
McLaughlin was concerned when Michael Elbery said during a phone conversation, "he didn't like Surprises". McLaughlin is helping himself to Michael Elbery's money; is that the surprise that McLaughlin is worried about?
Attorney James A. McLaughlin is a Documented Dope
Not only is Attorney James A. McLaughlin a crook, but Attorney James A. McLaughlin is a real dummy!
As soon as McLaughlin was appointed the 2d PR of the Estate of June Elbery he sent all 5 heirs to the Estate of June Elbery an initial introduction letter of 6-22-16. In that letter McLaughlin explains his function/job is to finish the liquidation of the Estate; McLaughlin documents in that June 22, 2016 letter that the only Probated Estate Asset left to liquidate is the remnants of a Lionel Train Set that he asked the heirs to bid on. Michael Elbery sent the high bid of $1 and McLaughlin ignored that sole bid and two more bids in the same amount because if he acknowledged Michael Elbery' $1 bid for the toy train set McLaughlin would have no excuse to keep the Estate open and could not steal any more Estate Cash. In that same 6-22-16 letter McLaughlin admits what some of the heirs already know, and that is that Attorney McLaughlin does not have Jurisdiction over the Estate house at 168 Fairfield St. because "by operation of law" that house is owned by the 5 heirs (their real estate owned in common). McLaughlin admits he has no authority over the house at 168 Fairfield St. and was appointed by the Probate Court to finish the job the 5 heirs had already paid Steve Hanna $14K to do. Not only doesn't McLaughlin have any jurisdiction/legal authority over the Estate House, but the Norfolk County Probate Court and its Judges have no Jurisdiction over that Estate House in Needham, Mass.
Further, Attorney James A. McLaughlin confirmed that he did not represent any of the 5 heirs, but was appointed by the Norfolk County Probate Court as the second Personal Representative to the Estate of June Elbery. Which is true, and nobody holds that fact in controversy.
However, the law and Attorney McLaughlin's acknowledgement that he has no legal authority, whatsoever, over the Estate Real Estate in Needham does not stop Attorney James A. McLaughlin from doing exactly the opposite and violating that same law.
A few weeks after his appointment, Attorney James A. McLaughlin contacted Michael Elbery by phone and criticized that he, "Big Shot" Attorney James A. McLaughlin, is "concerned that it is taking too long to sell the Estate house"!
Well, it is, and never was, any of Attorney James A. McLaughlin's business how long it is taking to sell the Estate house. That's right, the law in Massachusetts states that as the Personal Representative of the Probated Estate of June Elbery, Attorney James A. McLaughlin is prohibited from any possible jurisdiction or legal authority over the Real Estate which is owned in common by the 5 heirs. That's the Law in Massachusetts, the Estate of June Elbery, or any Estate/inheritance, is divided into two legally distinct parts; one part is the Probated Estate which is comprised of the personal property of the Estate, and is under the Jurisdiction of the Probate Court and its Appointed PR McLaughlin. The second part of the Estate is the Real Estate which by Operation of Mass. Law became immediately owned by the 5 heirs upon the day of her Death on March 26, 2015. The Probate Court and its Appointed PR, McLaughlin, have no Authority of Jurisdiction over the Real Estate.
McLaughlin declared in conversation with Michael Elbery in late June of 2016 that he "would be helping out with the sale of the Real Estate/the house at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.." Michael Elbery asked, "who was paying him to do that?" Attorney James A. McLaughlin, unabashedly proclaimed that he "would be taking money from the balance of the Estate Cash to pay himself!" This Attorney McLaughlin is admitting to a crime, McLaughlin is breaking the law that he had already acknowledged in writing by stealing money from the Estate Cash to illegally pay himself to his self-appointed and illegal involvement with the Real Estate.
Attorney James A. McLaughlin's pretended concern about the "house is taking too long to sell" was just a "hurry up" tactic and part of his greater "McLaughlin con job" to steal cash from the Estate of June Elbery that should have been already closed, finalized and the remaining cash distributed to the 5 heirs. Not only was Attorney James A. McLaughlin illegally stealing money out of the Probated Estate Cash to "help out" with the sale of House at 168 Fairfield St., but he knew of the Con-Job that was already in process between him, Attorney Greg Condon, and Attorney Billy Crowe to try and trick the Elbery heirs into accepting Attorney's Greg Condon's Verbal Hearsay Offer on the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.
When Michael Elbery explained the reason the house was not sold, after 3 months of Court Appointed Personal Representative, Steve Hanna's, Fraudulent House Sale Debacle, was because the house has never been on the M.L.S. and there was never as much as a "For Sale Sign" put on the front law of the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.. Michael Elbery had to instruct this waste product, McLaughlin, that nobody knew or knows the Estate House is "For Sale", thanks to Steve Hanna's fraud. This is a big, but very simple marketing problem that Attorney McLaughlin had difficulty conceptualizing.
Further, Michael Elbery lectured Attorney James A. McLaughlin that it now July of 2016 and Hanna quit any efforts to sell the house in early April of 2016 and went on another vacation. Hanna quit in early April but official was the PR until May 31, 2016.
When Michael Elbery stated that he should go to Needham, Mass. and put a "For Sale Sign" sign on the front lawn of the Estate House, Attorney McLaughlin started pleading that he, Michael Elbery, not go near the house. McLaughlin, from the start, acted like he was in charge of the Estate House, this "in charge act" was part of his style to implement his "con-job" to suck money out of the Estate Cash that he had no right to.
And where was the $500.00/hr. Boston Attorney, Billy Crowe, who represented one of the stupidest heirs of all time, David Elbery? Wasn't Crowe supposed to be looking out for his client's best interest? David Elbery's best interest is to stop Attorney James A. McLaughlin from helping himself to the Estate Cash that McLaughlin has no right to. Crowe should have demanded that the Estate of June Elbery be finalized, closed and the cash distributed in March of 2016, but he did nothing but allow McLaughlin to continue his scam as orchestrated by Steve Hanna and the Norfolk County Probate Court, Judge Casey.
Outlaw High pitched voice sounds like he does not have any Balls and he does not - like most a light weight in the World of Legaldom unlike Michael Elbery, like most attorneys of the Bar they look to the Court to provide them with a living, or they would starve.
Attorney James A. McLaughlin becomes instrumental in aiding Attorney Greg Condon to cheat the Elberys with verbal house sale, just read next section on "Attorney Greg Condon".
See Petition filed by Michael Elbery with the Norfolk County Probate Court demanding that Attorney James A. McLaughlin Stop his Stealing and obey his Jurisdiction.
Attorney Greg Condon "The King of Hearsay" and Attorney Condon's Verbal Real Estate Sale
Michael Elbery received Attorney James A. McLaughlin's letter of June 22, 2016 which letter disclosed that McLaughlin was the new Court Appointed Personal Representative and that Attorney Greg Condon may have interested buyers for the Estate House for a 1% sales commission. Michael Elbery decided to call Attorney Greg Condon about selling the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.. Condon claimed that he had customers with "money in hand" to buy the Estate House at $675K and he only wanted a 1% sales commission. Condon assured that he also had an active Real Estate Sales Company in Needham, Mass.
Needham, Mass. Attorney on Pickering St., Attorney Greg Condon, started off the phone conversation by criticizing Steve Hanna for excessive charging for his services as Court Appointed Personal Representative for the Estate of June Elbery. Joyce Elbery had relayed to Condon what Michael Elbery had learned from the new Personal Representative McLaughlin. That Hanna charged $14K. Condon exclaimed that "Hanna overcharged you and the other heirs," "way too much for that". Condon stated, "there is no way that kind of work Hanna did was worth that kind money." Michael Elbery explained we thought Hanna was going to steal more because of his $225/hr. fee to open an Estate Bank Account and write some checks. Michael Elbery emphasized that Hanna was deliberately assigned to Probate the Estate of June Elbery because he was so far away from Needham, Mass. in Westport, Mass., and that resulted in his $14K fee being caused from Mostly Travel Time. Michael Elbery also made point that we never trusted Hanna and never trusted the entire Probate System because our money is still under control of the Court.
Attorney Greg Condon should talk, Condon wanted $15,000.00 "up front legal fees" (retainer) from Joyce Elbery. What was Condon going to do for his $15,000.00? Condon was going to "represent" Joyce Elbery as an heir regarding her interests in the Probate of the Estate of June Elbery. Which means that Joyce would have had to pay $15,000.00 to Condon to get what was due her via an inheritance from mother, June Elbery. However, attorneys of the Bar seldom stop at the retainer and can easily find fabricated means to cause heated legal disputes over nothing; this all causing more fees amongst the attorneys. Joyce would have paid far more than $15,000.00. This alleged "representation" by Condon would have amounted to far less work than what Court Appointed Personal Representative, Steve Hanna, did regarding the Estate of June Elbery.
Michael Elbery, during the above introductory phone call with this lawyer, who was selling Real Estate to make a living, answered Condon's questions about the Sale of the Estate House. Michael Elbery explained that Hanna was the Laziest Double-Crosser in the World and that Hanna spent thousands of dollars for a few worthless Newspaper Ads; the newspaper ads were worthless because they did not include a phone number only an Email Contact which Hanna got around to answering when it was convenient to him. Condon was very sympathetic and started laughing when Michael Elbery told him that Hanna had an Open house so to sell the Estate House on a Monday morning and then cancelled it and unilaterally rescheduled it to Tuesday morning without the rest of the World or potential buyer have any ability to know. Attorney Greg Condon joined in with his chorus of insulting condemnation of Mass. State Worker Steve Hanna's malfeasance regarding the Probate of the Estate of June Elbery.
Michael Elbery highlighted that the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. was never on the Real Estate Market because of Hanna's malfeasance. There are all kinds of buyers for that house but they simply don't know its for sale.
Within a few days later, Condon quickly changed his tune and said the "the Glory Days are Gone for Needham Real Estate". Condon continued that "in the Spring "I could have easily gotten you $725K for the house at 168 Fairfield St.", Needham, Mass.. Michael Elbery asked Condon, "didn't the Spring just end on June 21 and this is a few days later? Condon sounded mad.
Strange, Michael Elbery spoke to other realtors and home builders in Needham, Mass. and they all said the real estate market was the same as usual, booming! What's wrong with Condon?
The new Court Appointed Personal Representative, Attorney James A. McLaughlin, wanted all the heirs to agree to Attorney Greg Condon to sell the house, but David Elbery refused, according to Condon. David Elbery was talking (actually not talking) through his overpaid joke of an attorney Billy Crowe. Greg Condon phoned Michael Elbery for legal advice about this predicament caused by Dave Elbery refusing to agree with the other 4 heirs to have him sell the Estate House. Michael Elbery instructed this boy, Greg Condon, that Dave and his attorney can't stop you from getting a buyer for the Estate House. Michael Elbery further instructed this boy, Condon, that he should contact one of the many home builders in Needham that Condon was boasting about and present a written Offer with Consideration in hand for the heirs to hold and the 5 heirs will vote to Accept the Offer. Condon emailed Michael Elbery thanking him for the legal advice.
Attorney Greg Condon engages Fraud - the "Verbal Hearsay" Real Estate Offer - Another Attorney with no money
Attorney Greg Condon is a boy whose legal business wasn't doing to well; according to Joyce Elbery, Condon prepared personal tax returns and of course he hustled Real Estate for a 1% Commission. Another indication that Condon was having money problems was how he handled his alleged attempt to Sell the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.. Attorney Condon committed fraud on the Elberys, all the more evidence that Attorney Greg Condon was desperate to make a buck. What a shame, another fool that had to go to Law School to learn the law, how pathetic.
Attorney Greg Condon could not afford a Scanner, read below.
Attorney Greg Condon started to show his true colors. He had an offer from a local Needham Builder named Matt Hughes.
Condon claimed that Hughes made an Offer for the Estate House of $645K, Michael Elbery asked if the other 4 Heirs to the Estate accepted the Offer. Per email, Condon stated that the other 4 Heirs all wanted $675K. Michael Elbery told Condon to get back to him.
The next morning, Wednesday 7-27-16, Condon called Michael Elbery and declared "you are the only one not Accepting Hughes latest Offer of $650K". Michael Elbery responded to Condon, "that is hard to believe." "Last night all 4 wanted $675K now first thing in the morning they all come down $25K. It is hard to believe they all agreed so fast!!"
Condon's response was "this is today that was yesterday".
Michael Elbery asked Condon if he tricked all the heirs into thinking they were the only one not accepting the $650K offer. Condon knew that most of the 5 owners of the house at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. did not talk to each other. Joyce and Robert Elbery did not receive a written signed Offer from Hughes but a Condon Hearsay phone call and email.
Michael Elbery told Condon that this Hughes Offer is "Verbal Hearsay" and there is No Legally required Consideration. Condon started squealing making a lot of noise claiming it wasn't required and that you are the only one not Agreeing to the Offer.
Michael Elbery told Condon "I want the Offer in Writing and signed by this guy, Matt Hughes", and I need $6K in my hand which is one fifth of the deposit Condon claimed Hughes would put down. Hughes never came up with any money and there was NO WRITTEN OFFER required for a binding Real Estate Sale.
His Highness, the Crook who is stealing my Money, Attorney James A. McLaughlin, "front man" for South Natick Law Firm
That same morning, Wednesday 7-27-16., Michael Elbery, then, received a phone call from his Majesty, Attorney James A. McLaughlin. McLaughlin had absolutely No Jurisdiction over the Estate House because it was not part of the Probated Estate but was owned "by operation of law" by the 5 heirs as "tenants- in-common." McLaughlin in high pitched old man voice tried to verbally Crucify Michael Elbery with a verbal attack on the phone, Authoritatively yelling "Why are you the only one not Accepting the Offer for $650K", "Why won't you take $650K?"
I asked Attorney McLaughlin how he was involved in the sale of the House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. since he was appointed by the Court to finish the Probate of the Estate and the House was private property owned "in common" by the 5 Heirs and not part of the Estate to be Probated.
McLaughlin declared that he was "helping out with the Real Estate Sale." Michael Elbery asked who is paying for that and Attorney James A. McLaughlin stated that 'he is taking money out of the Estate money to pay for his help selling the Real Estate" for any billable hours he decided he needed to rack up regarding the Sale of the Estate House he had no Legal Authority being involved in. McLaughlin admitted to taking (stealing) money in violation of law; McLaughlin is the self - appointed thief who sees that Estate Money and can't resist stealing it.
The $60K left in the Estate Fund belonged to Michael Elbery and Robert Elbery due to tax apportionment. That is why the $60K was never distributed, the Court had planned to have McLaughlin steal Michael Elbery's money.
Michael Elbery asked McLaughlin if he went to the same Law School as Condon. McLaughlin let out a loud squeak over the phone, he was upset.
Michael Elbery told McLaughlin that in Real Estate there is nothing without a writing. I told McLaughlin that Nobody, none of the 5 heirs has ever received any written offer from anyone, including this guy Matt Hughes, if he really exists.
Michael Elbery told McLaughlin, "Listen Mr. Lawyer, I suggest you learn the law. Without an Offer and Acceptance in WRITING there is nothing in Real Estate because there is no Binding Agreement unless the Offer and Acceptance are in writting, and that is the law, it is called the "Statute of Frauds"." McLaughlin responded in a high pitched voice, "you are the only one holding up this House sale."
In other words, there is no real estate sale (house sale) without a written Offer accompanied by Consideration.
I lectured McLaughlin that if I tried to enforce my rights in a Court of Law with this "Condon verbal Hearsay house Offer" from, allegedly, Hughes for $650k a Court of Law would be required under the law to throw me out of Court. The Court would be required under the law to ask for a signed written document to support my claim of a Real Estate Offer and related Sale by Hughes.
I asked McLaughlin, "where is David Elbery's legal representation?" "Why was Attorney Billy Crowe accepting (verbally) a "Verbal Hearsay Offer" from Condon on behalf of his client David Elbery?" These lawyers couldn't be that Stupid, they are up to another Scam at the expense of the Elbery's.
There was another Stella Attorney of the Mass. Bar who Accepted the Condon Verbal Hearsay Offer and that was heir Attorney Kathleen Elbery. Sadly, for Kathleen she knows nothing about law and practices only taxes. It is a rare and pathetic individual who can spend their entire life filling out Tax Returns. At a minimum, such a life is Anti-Intellectual.
Michael Elbery told McLaughlin, "I want to know what I'm agreeing to, if the Offer is not in writing there is no deal." "If the Offer is not in writing then there can be no legal enforceable contract to purchase the house." Michael Elbery also repeated, "I demand a deposit to be held by me, so that I know there is no "Condon Con Job"."
Finally, Attorney John A. McLaughlin capitulated and exclaimed, "you are right, the Offer and Acceptance does have to be in writing for a Real Estate Sale". I will tell Condon to get you a written Offer signed by Hughes.
I also told McLaughlin that Condon has been trying to "Con" me and is violating the law, as a result, I want his Sales Agreement in writing corroborating that we owe him 1% Commission for his successful completion of the Sale of the house at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.. Attorney John A. McLaughlin agreed that Condon should produce a written Sales Agreement for his Real Estate brokerage, after all, Attorney Greg Condon of Needham, Mass. is not trustworthy and has proved to be an untrustworthy "Con Man" and a liar.
So they re-grouped and decided to pull another trick with an expired "Hughes Offer" unaccompanied by legally required consideration.
Attorney Greg Condon had a broken Scanner that he claimed prevented him from getting Michael Elbery a written "Hughes Offer". So Attorney John A. McLaughlin was contacted by Condon and McLaughlin forwarded the "Hughes Offer", a week later. All hard to believe, but that is what happens when you have to deal with thieves and liars that are Authorized by the Norfolk County Probate Court.
On Tuesday, 7-26-16, Michael Elbery received an Email from McLaughlin with the "Hughes Offer" attached. The Hughes offer was 3 Days EXPIRED and there was NO CONSIDERATION as indicated in paragraph #2 of the EXPIRED WRITTEN OFFER. Just more tricks by the Attorneys of the BAR.
What is this Lawyers' Trick???
The trick is Amateur, but these Stooges are lightweight lawyers; these are attorneys, like so many in the Mass. Bar, who have no stomach for juries or litigation or presentation of evidence. The only Legal Strategy their pea brains can formulate is currying to the Court for favor and assigned fees, and of course, taking opportunity to steal, as in the case of the Estate of June Elbery. These are weak men, who are Politically Correct sycophants; they are common in our Society causing it to be Diseased.
Condon wanted to trick the Elberys into verbally accepting the verbal-hearsay "Hughes Offer" and at the same time causing them to take the Estate House off the Real Estate Market until October thinking they had the House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. sold. Unbeknownst by the Elberys, they would be in actuality Hoping that Hughes would come up with the money in October to buy the house at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.. Notwithstanding the previous sentence, Condon admitted to Michael Elbery that his customer, Hughes, did not have the money ($650K). Hughes would be in a power position as planned when October came around; Hughes could simply say he has no obligation under the law to come up with $650K to buy the Estate House at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. because he never agreed to buy that house. He never agreed to buy the Estate House because there was NO Legally Binding WRITTEN Offer required to a Legally Binding Sales AGREEMENT by Hughes.
Because Michael Elbery was the only heir to the Estate to refuse to accept Attorney Greg Condon's verbal hearsay "Hughes Offer", the dopey lawyers got together and dreamt up another even more stupid trick. Michael Elbery exposed Attorney Greg Condon's verbal Hearsay "Hughes Offer" as legally worthless, so that even the crooked, Attorney James A. McLaughlin, had to agree with Michael Elbery. Yes, that's right, Attorney McLaughlin illegally stuck his nose in the Estate House sale at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. and while trying to coerce and trick Michael Elbery into accepting the verbal hearsay "Hughes Offer", McLaughlin finally capitulated when Michael Elbery told McLaughlin during a phone conversation that no Real Estate Sale can be legally binding unless it is in WRITING. Of course this is law 101 that anybody would know, but why did heir, Attorney Kathleen Elbery, agree to the "Hughes verbal hearsay Offer" and wherever was David Elbery's high paid legal representation in the form of Attorney Billy Crowe? Both, heir to the Estate, Attorney Kathleen Elbery, and David Elbery, (through his big shot squirt of a man) , Attorney William "Billy" Crowe, accepted Attorney Greg Condon's verbal hearsay "Hughes Offer". Are those Attorney's of the Mass. that stupid?
The dopey Attorneys new trick was a brand new written Offer from Hughes that was already EXPIRED when Attorney John A. McLaughlin email it to Michael Elbery. Not only was this new written "Hughes Offer" EXPIRED but there was NO CONSIDERATION accompanying this new written 'Hughes Offer" as emailed for Attorney Greg Condon by Attorney McLaughlin.
If Michael Elbery had been dumb enough to fall for the Lawyers' Trick and Accept Hughes' Written, but also EXPIRED Offer, the result would have been no different. Hughes and Condon would have complained that there was no Agreement because Michael Elbery had Accepted after the Expiration of that Offer. The other Elbery Heirs never got a written Offer from Hughes, even David Elbery who is represented by Attorney Billy Crowe.
Hughes, via "Condon's Double Layer Hearsay Offer" would be in a power position in October when he was verbally supposed to buy the house. Attorney Greg Condon would further Con the Elbery heirs and start, again, yakking about "winter coming" and no one wants the House until the Spring. If there was an Offer for the Estate House in October by Hughes or anyone else through Condon then that potential buyer would be in a position, due to Condon's Con of misinformation, to offer far less than $650K and the Elbery heirs, with all David Elbery's legal representation via Attorney Billy Crowe, would have bitten the bait if not for Michael Elbery foiling the "Condon-McLaughlin-Crowe" Fraud.
What is the Lawyers' Next Trick?? The Cost of a "Petition for Partition" & the 3 Stooges Lose Again
The Lawyer's will yell and scream Michael Elbery was the only Heir (owner of the house) not to Agree to the "Hughes Offer", and therefore, he is to incur the cost of a "Petition for Partition". It will make no difference to their scheme that the other 4 Heirs never received a Written Offer or Accepted "Hughes Offer" in Writing. The Lawyer's will yell and scream that Michael Elbery received a written Offer from Hughes and refused to Accept it. They will deny that it was EXPIRED when they sent Michael Elbery that "Hughes Offer". The lawyers, Condon and McLaughlin, never did explain how they were sending the Consideration as per the Expired Contract, that's because the Crooks had no intention of ever putting up any money.
However, Attorney James A. McLaughlin, unwittingly, supplied the irrefutable evidence, via the his letterhead Stationary dated 7-25-16, that proves the "Hughes Offer" was sent to Michael Elbery Days after it was EXPIRED. Not to mention that there was never any Consideration accompanied to that EXPIRED Hughes Offer, see Paragraph #2 that says there is an accompanying $1,000.00 with the Hughes Offer. Attorney Greg Condon said it wasn't his fault that his partner in crime, Attorney James A. McLaughlin, didn't attach the $1,000 Consideration to his email! Of course, that was Condon's game, never put up any money, just worthless verbiage, hearsay and lies.
Attorney Greg Condon is hereby dubbed a Super Asshole lawyer of the Century.
According to Joyce Elbery, Attorney Billy Crowe is waiting, per his comments at the 5-31-16 hearing at Norfolk County Probate Court, for the right moment to Prey with a "Petition for Partition" and cause Michael Elbery the cost of the expensive legal process. Tuff Luck, Crowe, you lose again.
Matt Hughes Stupidly talks to Michael Elbery
There is good reason why the police and government Officials have been forbidden to approach Michael Elbery with their usual verbal interrogation and attempted tricks. Michael Elbery uses everything they say against them, they get caught with their own words and on their own tricks.
After receiving the EXPIRED Matt Hughes Offer via Attorney McLaughlin email, Michael Elbery called Matt Hughes of Pinewood HomeBuilders in Needham, Mass.. Hughes got all upset and attacked Elbery over the phone accusing him, "you are the only one who didn't agree to my Offer, the other four all agreed to $650K." Michael Elbery told Hughes that the other 4 heirs/owners of the house Accepted nothing and never received a legally Binding Offer from him, (Hughes), because it was all Verbal and unenforceable in a Court of Law.
Michael Elbery continued with Hughes during that phone conversation that when he finally received his Written Offer it was Expired and there was NO Consideration accompanying the Offer as specified in paragraph #2 of that EXPIRED Offer.
Hughes started whining that "you want to fight". Michael Elbery said "drive down here, if you want a fight I'm 130 miles away from Needham."
Hughes emphasized that he "always did it that way" (Verbal Hearsay Offer for Real Estate) and never did anything in writing. Sounds like Hughes will get some more needed publicity that he is not a good person to be doing business with.
Michael Elbery lectured this yuppie home builder "cry baby" that "the law in Real Estate is there is nothing without a writing," "a sales contract to buy real estate must be in writing to be legally binding and enforcable." Hughes hung the phone up.
During the conversation Hughes admitted he didn't have the money, "now", and that he would have to sell some of his inventory to be able to refinance in order to buy the house at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.
Matt Hughes was apologetic for his association with Attorney Greg Condon of Needham, Mass. and described Condon, "charitably," as a "Character Around Town".
Next, Attorney Greg "Gooney Bird" Condon threatens Michael Elbery with phony Documents
On 8-2-16, Michael Elbery received an email from Attorney Greg Condon. Michael Elbery was hoping never to hear from this idiot again. Although Condon's Email was partially incoherent due to Condon's obvious difficulty communicating, it did threaten Michael Elbery that the other heirs were sent (written?) Offers and they had Expired "a few days ago, on its face". It is difficult to construe exactly what Condon was trying to communicate in that email, so Michael Elbery asked for clarification. Condon refused to clarify.
It appears that Condon's email is implying that there was a new attempt (after the above failed fraudulent "Hughes Offer") by Condon to get the owners of the Estate house a new Offer, or that there always were Written Hughes Offers sent to the 5 Heirs and that at 8-1-16 the Offer expired, "a few days ago". Is Condon fighting back? Is Condon getting Even? Is Condon Fabricating? Is Condon up to a new Scheme? At a minimum, this is more Attorney Greg Condon (stupid) Fraud.
Will Condon falsify that he sent Michael Elbery another Offer? Could Condon afford to buy a new scanner? Condon refused to send Michael Elbery anything in the U.S. mail because he didn't want to pay postage.
Condon, via his 8-1-16 email, claims to have a deposit check from "the buyer", but Condon never worked for the 5 owners of the house at 168 Fairfield st. Needham, Mass., he did not represent the 5 heirs. David Elbery refused to hire Condon.
Michael Elbery never saw any Deposit or Deposit Check or any other Written Offer from a "Condon buyer", other than the Expired Offer Condon had McLaughlin send Michael Elbery. Is Condon Fabricating, is he Scheming to get even?
Condon claims in his 8-2-16 email that he is "terminating my involvement with the family home on Fairfield St.... or your family." Condon was already fired the week before, thankfully, he has finally gotten the message and decided to run along.
In my Opinion based on the evidence, Attorney Greg Condon is fabricating that there were new Offers sent to the owners of the house at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. and he will fabricate that Michael Elbery was the only one not to accept that new Offer. All Falsely causing Michael Elbery to be liable for the cost of a "Petition for Partition". They are relying on this lightweight "Gooney Bird" of an Attorney, Greg Condon, who fills out Personal Income Tax Returns, hustles Real Estate at a 1% Commission, and can't afford a Scanner, to falsify a case against Michael Elbery, so he receives nothing of the approximately $130K remaining balance that is due him via Inheritance.
Hey, Condon will be looked upon with Favor by the Court and get assigned cases to save his failing Legal Practice. And the Jews will throw him some scraps for his good work. But he is going to lose against Michael Elbery, unless the Norfolk Probate Court can help his case with their usual Corruption and Violation of Law.
Michael Elbery Sent his regards and also told Condon to take his medication and stop sending any more threatening emails.
Michael Elbery also alerted the Court to Condon's Fraud and Conspiracy!!

10-2-15 - BREAKING NEWS - Norfolk County Register of Probate, Patrick McDermott Caught Corrupting Probate Court -
Elected Official, Register McDermott, Exposed in Conspiracy!
Citizens Alerted via the Court of the World Free Internet!
Norfolk County Register of Probate Patrick McDermott Obstructs Due Process of Law - Clerk Ed P. reveals McDermott Conspires to Stop Michael Elbery's Petition Docketing.
That's right, Register of the Norfolk County Court, Patrick McDermott, signed his name to an Obstruction of Due Process of Law. The United States Post Office documents that Patrick McDermott received a Petition from Michael Elbery on Wednesday September 30, 2015, and then deliberately intercepted that document and prevented the Petition from being docketed, so it could be timely heard during the scheduled 10-5-15 hearing by a Judge. Norfolk County Clerk Ed P. confirmed that McDermott received the Petition on 9-30-15. Clerk Ed P. ( Ed Patarety is the closest this Web Site could get to his last name) refused to give his last name because he claimed he felt threatened by this Web Site. Ed P. also claimed that he was "not a moron that would make his name known".
Patrick McDermott and Co-Conspirators, including Ed P., of the Norfolk County Probate Court, have taken the above illegal course of action in order to prevent Michael Elbery from Petitioning the Probate Court for Appointment as Personal Representative of an Estate docketed in Norfolk County Probate Court
Ed P. further claimed, on October 2, 2015 via phone, that, although Register of Probate Court, Patrick McDermott, did sign for and has Michael Elbery's Petition delivered by the U.S. Post Office, that it would not be docketed in time to be heard on October 5, 2015 when other legal actions concerning the Estate would be heard by Probate Judge John D. Casey causing Michael Elbery's Petition for Appointment as Personal Representative to be void.
Clerk Ed P. demanded that the important issue wasn't that the Norfolk County Clerk's Office was holding back on docketing Elbery's Petition, but instead, Ed P. demanded to know why Michael Elbery did not file his Petition earlier. Ed P. could not comprehend that Michael Elbery filed his Petition timely and did not plan on the Norfolk County Clerk's Office to deliberately Obstruct Justice and Due Process of Law by holding Elbery's Petition back until the Clerk's Office docketed it at a time to make it worthless.
Clerk Ed P., besides claiming he was "not born a moron, and therefore is not a moron", stated that Michael Elbery's Petition would be docketed on Monday October 5, 2015. According to the Norfolk County Probate Court's docket entries, as provided on the Internet, Michael Elbery's Petition was not docketed by Sunday, October 4, 2105. So, as promised by Clerk Ed P., Michael Elbery's Petition will be filed on Monday October 5, 2015 in time to make that Petition worthless.
In fact, Michael Elbery's Petition to be Appointed Personal Representative of the Estate was never docketed and ignored, as if it was never filed (see 9-23-15 through 10-9-15 entries there is no Petition docketed), or if you want to give them more time see the case docket entries as of 10-6-16. After talking to Ed P. at the Norfolk County Probate Clerk's Office, Michael Elbery decided that it would be a good idea for him to Withdraw; obviously walking into the Norfolk County Probate Court would be an Ambush. Michael Elbery Withdraws his Petition.
More Concealment of Evidence by Norfolk County Probate Court and Clerk's Office of Registrar Patrick McDermott
That was not the only legal document filed by heir, Michael Elbery, that was deliberately concealed by the Norfolk County Probate Court Clerk's Office of Registrar Patrick McDermott. McDermott's Office also deliberately refused to docket Michael Elbery's "Petition to Close the Estate and Distribute the Remaining Estate Cash to the Rightful Heirs et al.". That Petition that also exposed more documented Fraud surrounding the Probate of the Estate of June Elbery was delivered on 9-8-16 by the U.S. Post Office long before the scheduled hearing date at Norfolk County Probate Court on 9-13-16. See also the Court Docket at 10-6-16 that documents that the Norfolk County Probate Court simply purged that same Petition because it exposes more illegalities of the lawyers and Norfolk County Probate Judge.
And of course, Registrar Patrick McDermott's Office at the Norfolk County Probate Court wanted to also conceal yet more legal documents in the form of Motions filed by Michael Elbery concerning the gross illegalities engaged in by Judge Casey and his needlessly appointed second Personal Representative, Attorney James A. McLaughlin. As per the 8-9-16 Docket entries for the Estate case at Norfolk County Probate Court, the Clerk's Office disguises that document as an "Affidavit: Other" in order to conceal the evidence of Fraud by Judge Casey and Attorney James A. McLaughlin that is disclosed in that document.
III. David Elbery and Crow Attorneys Defeated in their Conspiracy with Probate Judge John D. Casey
See Background Information - 3-26-15 through 7-15-16 - "The Revelations"
Will Court Force Needless Attorney Crowe Fees?
Will Norfolk County Probate Judge - John D. Casey Order Family to Needlessly Pay Attorney Michael A. Crowe, in order to enforce Crowe's planned Grand Larceny? Who needs an attorney of the Mass. Bar to probate an Estate? The Mass. Legislature has made Probate Law so easy that anyone can probate an Estate; in 2012 the Massachusetts Legislature re-wrote Massachusetts Probate Law with the intent of making Probate Law so easy that any citizen can liquidate an Estate without hiring an Attorney of the Bar. Attorney Michael A. Crowe sees his opportunity to Exploit Death with a fee of over $50K without doing any more work than a real estate transfer that he could only charge $2K for.
An Attorney of the Mass. Bar Riggs Liquidation of Estate
Attorney Michael A. Crowe had David Elbery illegally appointed Personal Representative to the Estate without giving any of the legally required 30 Day Notice to the other 4 Heirs to the Estate. That's right, on June 3, 2015, Attorney Michael A. Crowe filed a Petition for the Norfolk Probate Court to appoint David Elbery Personal Representative, so Dave could liquidate the $1.6million Dollar Estate. On that same day, the Court, Judge John D. Casey, appointed David Elbery Personal Representative for the Estate and had the Norfolk County Probate Clerk's Office issue David Elbery the Licenses that allowed David Elbery to liquidate the Bank Account, Stocks in the amount of approximately $700,000.00. However, no notice was given to the other 4 heirs to the Estate of June Elbery, so they could be given an opportunity to Object to David Elbery as the Personal Representative to liquidate the Estate. That 30 day Notice to the other heirs to the Estate is required by Massachusetts law. In other words, the law in Massachusetts Mandates that once the Petition was filed for David Elbery to be PR of the Estate of June Elbery, then the other 4 heirs were required to be notified so they could OBJECT to David Elbery be Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery. Most of June Elbery's Heirs either expressed they hated David Elbery, or considered him a thief who would cheat them as a matter of his habit.
Don't believe a Massachusetts Judge, complete with the high paid staff in the Clerk's Office of the Norfolk County Probate Court, would allow an Appointment of David Elbery as Personal Representative without providing the other heirs to the Estate with the legally mandated 30-Day Notice required by law? Then See the Docket Entries for the Estate at issue.
As confirmed by docket entry of June 3, 2015, Attorney Michael A. Crowe of Needham, Mass. filed a Petition for Formal Probate of the Estate; that Petition is an application for David Elbery to be appointed as Personal Representative to liquidate the Estate. The Norfolk County Judge John D. Casey, immediately on 6-3-15, in violation of Massachusetts law, appointed David Elbery Personal Representative, see docket entry of June 4, 2015. The Personal Representative is the person who is given license by the Court to liquidate the Estate into cash and distribute that Estate Cash.
Where was the citizenry's elected Official, Norfolk County Register Patrick McDermott? Is this the kind of work and corruption that Register McDermott produces after being elected by the good citizens of Norfolk County? That's why the Probate Court has a system of checks and balances; there is Probate Judge, who has one job, and the Norfolk County Registrar, Patrick McDermott (an elected official) who has an entire Clerk's Office that functions to check the activity in the Probate Court to make sure everything complies with Law. It is Impossible for David Elbery to have been illegally Appointed as Personal Representative of the Estate of June Elbery on the same day his Petition was filed without collusion to violate the Massachusetts Probate Laws by Judge Casey, the Norfolk County Probate Court Registrar, Patrick McDermott, the Clerk's Office at Norfolk County Probate Court and of course, Attorney Michael A. Crowe and his client, David Elbery.
Although, the 6-3-2015 docket entries indicate that "Citation on Petition for Formal Adjudication Issued" no such notice was provided to the other 4 heirs to the Estate. The Norfolk County Clerk's Office confirms that David Elbery was illegally appointed as Personal Representative of the estate by their VACATE ORDERS, see below as to how these "Vacate Orders" resulted. The 6-3-15 docket entry indicates that notice was sent on that date, but that is a fabrication (back dated) by the Norfolk County Probate Court Clerk's Office when the Court of Judge Casey got caught illegally Appointing David Elbery Personal Representative . What good would notice to the other 4 heirs be on 6-3-15, if David Elbery was already appointed Personal Representative on 6-3-15?
His Majesty Judge John D. Casey
On 6-3-2015, Judge John D. Casey "Decreed" (we have Kings in the U.S, now?) David Elbery Personal Representative of the Estate. That's right, the same day of June 3, 2015 that Attorney Michael A. Crowe filed the Petition to Appoint David Elbery as Personal Representative to the Estate of June Elbery, Norfolk County Judge John D. Casey approved that Petition via his "Decree" on the same day of June 3, 2015. A Documented violation of law by the Massachusetts Judge, Casey. Just what we come to expect in Massachusetts!
They don't even try to hide the fact that Judge John D. Casey makes Decrees like a monarch and ignores law. See docket entry 6-4-15.
But where were all those "little doobies" and Politically Correct "goodie two shoes" in the Clerk's Office of the Norfolk County Clerk's Office? How is it that the Clerk's Office allowed Judge John D. Casey to Appoint David Elbery as Personal Representative of the Estate the same day the Petition was filed? All the King's Horses and all the King's Men in the Norfolk County Probate Court Clerk's Office thumbed their nose at the law provided by the Massachusetts Legislature. These miscreants at the Norfolk County Probate Court are in charge, they are the law, they do whatever they so desire. Work for the taxpayers, Answer to the taxpayers? That theory of Society in the U.S.A. ended decades ago.
Where was the citizenry's elected Official, Norfolk County Register Patrick McDermott? This lawlessness is an example of Register Patrick McDermott's Office!
Judge John Casey & Registrar McDermott Got Caught - Panic in Norfolk County Probate Ct. Clerk's Office - The "Vacate Orders" Issued on David Elbery
On June 10, 2015, Michael Elbery received a phone call from Joyce Elbery informing him that David Elbery had been appointed as Personal Representative to Probate the Estate. The reply was "that is impossible because the heirs to the Estate did not receive the legally mandated 30-Day Notice required to be given, so the heirs could Object to David Elbery as Personal Representative."
On the same day, June 10, 2015, Michael Elbery called the Norfolk County Clerk's Office to inquire why the laws of Massachusetts were being violated by the Norfolk County Probate Court? The clerk, Lisa, put Michael Elbery on hold for about 15 minutes and then replied "your right there was no Notice given to heirs of the Estate, that appointment of David Elbery will be VACATED." And it was VACATED the same day of 6-10-15. However, the Norfolk County Probate Court Clerk's Office backdated the VACATE ORDER to 6-4-15. More Fraud by Register Patrick McDermott's Norfolk County Probate Clerk's Office. The Norfolk County Probate Court Clerk's Office backdated the VACATE ORDER to 6-4-15 to downplay the violation of law and to cover for Judge John D. Casey who made the illegal appointment that he defines as his DECREE.
This Web Site is not saying that Lisa did anything other than take the phone call; Lisa was very pleasant and business like, and she did what she was supposed to do. Lisa admitted that Massachusetts Law was violated.
Here's more proof that the Norfolk County Clerk's Office backdated the VACATE ORDER from 6-10-15 to the phony date of 6-4-15. The "Letters of Authority" (License Issued by the Probate Court that allows the Court Appointed PR to clean out the Deceased's Cash Accounts and liquidate the Probated Estate ) that gave David Elbery authorization from the Probate Court to liquidate the assets of the Estate were issued on 6-4-15 per docket entry of the Estate. Why would the "Letters of Authority" have to be Vacated on 6-4-15 if those letters were not issued until 6-4-15. The truth is that the "Letters of Authority" were issued on 6-4-15 and were not VACATED until 6-10-15.
The Norfolk County Probate Court Clerk's Office got caught again. David Elbery and his corrupt attorney, Michael Crowe, had the Licenses illegally issued by the Norfolk County Probate Court, thus, legally allowing David Elbery to empty any and all Bank Accounts and other Cash and near Cash Accounts (life Insurance Policies, Stocks, Bonds etc.) or confiscate and liquidate any Personal Property of the Inheritance that June Elbery left upon death on March 26, 2015.
Norfolk County Probate Court Clerk's Office gets Caught Falsifying the Docket with their Own Letter
The Clerk's Office ordered David Elbery to return all Licenses on 6-10-15. That's right, the Clerk's Office didn't backdate their letter but did backdate their docket entry of the VACATE of David Elbery's Appointment as Personal Representative to 6-4-15.Those are the same licenses that allowed David Elbery to empty over a 1/2Million in "Cold Cash" from bank accounts of June Elbery. Some of the heirs point out that David Elbery had plenty of time to empty those bank accounts and that the damage is done. That's why the heirs are supposed to be given the 30-Day Notice required by Mass. Law, so that the other heirs can Object and Stop David Elbery from having a FREE hand with over half a Million Dollars in cash.
But who knows what we are missing, the first Personal Representative, Steve Hanna, not only refused to do even the most superficial Audit of the financial records of June Elbery but admitted to stealing those financial records out of June Elbery's House at 168 Fairfield St. Needham, Mass in the winter of 2016; not only did Hanna refuse to allow Michael Elbery to see the stolen Estate Documents so Michael Elbery ( a C.P.A. in Massachusetts) could audit the records but Hanna illegally refused to turn those same stolen financial records over to any of the heirs. Court Appointed and First Personal Representative of the Probated Estate of June Elbery, Steve Hanna, claimed that the Stolen financial records that he stole out of the Estate House belonged to him and not the heirs. When Michael Elbery challenged Hanna with the law and put Hanna up against the wall by alerting him that the law is quit different and the financial documents belong to the heirs Hanna had no answer in his Defense. Michael Elbery demanded that Hanna show him and the other heirs the law that allows him to own the financial records of June Elbery. Hanna ran with his tail between his legs and claimed to have turned all the financial documents he stole over to the newly Court Appointed Personal Representative James A. McLaughlin. McLaughlin is even a worse crook and refused any of Michael Elbery's demands for the stolen financial records of June Elbery.
David Elbery Ransacks the Estate House for 2 days, Did David Elbery find what he was looking For? David is Acting Guilty
David Elbery was also in a position to be alone and in control of the Estate House of June Elbery for 2 days after the death of June Elbery; during those 2 days David Elbery searched and ransacked the entire house at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. turning up every paper he found and leaving them strewn all over the house, according to Joyce Elbery who arrived on 3-28-16 from Florida to observe firsthand the aftermath of David Elbery's search of the house that June Elbery owned at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass.. Did David Elbery successfully abscond with financial documents preventing a true accounting of the Estate of June Elbery? Is that why David Elbery is represented by, first Michael A. Crowe, and then Attorney Billy Crowe, and remains silent from the other heirs?
Let's review the Evidence! David Elbery ransacked by Search the Estate House of June Elbery at 168 Fairfield St., Needham, Mass. for 2 days. David Elbery was looking for something! David Elbery was also illegally appointed by the Norfolk County Probate Court Judge, John D. Casey as Personal Representative of the Probated Estate of June Elbery and was at the same time issued the "letters of Authority" that are the Licenses that allow a Personal Representative of an Estate to empty all the Bank Accounts and Financial Instruments of the Estate. David Elbery had those licenses for over a week which was plenty of time to Liquidate and steal a financial instrument or contents of a bank Account that only he knew about after ransacking the Estate House. David Elbery would have had all the evidence and been able to conceal it. During the entire pendancy of the Estate of June Elbery, David Elbery has acted like he has something to hide, that he is "Conscious of his Guilt"; David Elbery is always, regarding the Estate of June Elbery, represented by Counsel (Attorney Michael Crowe and then Attorney William "Billy" Crowe). Concerning the Estate of June Elbery, David Elbery "exercises his right to remain silent" and even the Court Appointed Personal Representatives are not allowed to talk to David Elbery, they have to go through Attorney William Crowe. David Elbery acts like the Probate of the Estate of June Elbery is a Criminal Case instead of an Inheritance. Why?
Notwithstanding the above paragraph, David Elbery has had to pay through the nose for the unnecessary legal services of the two Crowe Attorneys. The best estimate is that David Elbery has had his pockets emptied by Attorney Billy Crowe for over $50k, because Attorney William Crowe, who is fabulously overpriced, and works out of a Federal St., Boston Office, commands $500.00 -$700.00 an hour for his inferior legal work. Add to that the $5K-$10K fee Attorney Michael Crowed charged David Elbery during the initial stages of the Probated Estate when Attorney Michael Crowe got caught violating the other heir's Due Process Rights when he corrupted the Probate Court in Norfolk County and had David Elbery illegally appointed PR to the Estate of June Elbery by Judge Casey without any Legally Mandated Notice to the other heirs.
What else does Attorney Michael A. Crowe think he's going to pull? Grand Theft Larceny Attorney
Attorney Michael A. Crowe got David Elbery's appointment as Personal Representative rigged, only to be caught and scandalized in the World Court of Public Opinion via the World Free Internet.
The Family, and also heirs to the Estate, do not want Crowe hired as Attorney for the Estate because they don't trust him and don't need to pay him or any other attorney to do what the heirs can do, themselves. David Elbery was illegally appointed Personal Representative of the Estate, but Dave doesn't understand law and refuses to make any attempt to learn the pertinent Probate Law, himself. Instead David Elbery hired Attorney Michael A. Crowe as "Attorney for the Estate" to liquidate the Estate. See "Party Information" section of the Estate docket entries where "Crowe, Esq., Michael A." is designated as hired by Elbery, David E.- "Personal Representative" to be paid as Attorney for the Estate. Crowe would not do any of the "goffer" runs required to liquidate the Estate but Crowe would give David Elbery "goffer" orders and Dave would do the walking.
Attorney Michael A. Crowe was for a about a week the Official Attorney for the Estate of June Elbery. Attorney Michael A. Crowe has been ordered, by the heirs of the Estate, to remove himself from any association with the Estate, after all Crowe just appointed himself to Probate the Estate without any communication or approval from the heirs. Crowe never sent an Engagement Letter to the heirs. Crowe never gave the heirs of the Estate even an estimate of his unwanted and unnecessary legal fees. The customary legal fee for a Probate Attorney is 5% of the Gross Estate Value. Who needs this sneaky Crowe? We the heirs of the Estate can Probate it ourselves without any cost of legal fees.
Attorney Michael A. Crowe fled in fear after receiving a phone call from Michael Elbery because Crowe admitted that he didn't do litigation. Michael Elbery told Michael Crowe he "better learn because I am good at it." Attorney Michael A. Crowe became the Nullset.
Why would anyone trust Crowe after he violated 4 heirs rights to Notice and got client, David Elbery, immediately appointed Personal Representative of the Estate by By-Passing all the legally mandated Notice Requirements. Is Attorney Michael A. Crowe going to claim he didn't know that the Legally required 30 - Day Notice was required? Is Attorney Michael A. Crowe of Needham, Mass. going to claim he just didn't think there was something totally illegal because he filed his Petition to have his client, David Elbery, appointed Personal Representative of the Estate and the same day Judge John D. Casey Decreed ( see the 1st 6-4-15 entry "Decree and Order of Formal Probate 6-3-15") that David Elbery be, not only illegally appointed Personal Representative of the Estate, but also issued the Licenses, so David Elbery could illegally empty the Bank Accounts in the amount of over 1/2 $Million Dollars that belonged to the heirs of the Estate.
No wonder the heirs to the Estate believe Attorney Michael A. Crowe is a legalized Crook and masterminded the entire scheme of Fraud that allowed David Elbery to be appointed Personal Representative of the Estate and be issued by the Court the Licenses that allowed David Elbery to "cash in" for over a 1/2 $Million in Cold Cash.
Regardless, that Attorney Michael A. Crowe has been ordered off the Estate by the Elbery Family, Crowe continues to drool at the thought of making a year's pay for doing next to nothing (pushing a few standard Probate forms), when appointed by David Elbery as "Attorney for the Estate". Attorney Michael A. Crowe was listed on the Estate Docket entries as Attorney for the Estate until David Elbery was VACATED when his attorney, Michael A. Crowe and Judge John D. Casey in conspiracy with Register Patrick McDermott's Clerk's Office, got caught for Violating Due Process of Law via their plan to deprive the 4 other heirs to the Estate the required 30-Day Notice required by Massachusetts Probate Law, in order to prevent the other 4 heirs from OBJECTING and PREVENTING David Elbery from acting as Personal Representative of the Estate. Now, William D. "billy" Crowe is listed as representing Petitioner - David Elbery. Actually, both Crowe attorneys are, both, listed as representing David Elbery.That's right, Dave hasn't given up his dreams of having dibs on over 1/2$Million in Cold Cash, see below, as Dave is making more friendships with Crowes by throwing in another $15K in legal fees (starting retainer), so Attorney William D. Crowe can pull his amateur tricks. Dave wants the Estate, and its other 4 heirs, to actually pay the Crowe Legal Fees that David has needlessly wasted to keep his friendship with the 2 Crowe Attorney's fortified.
However, Attorney Michael A. Crowe may have stopped drooling for his exploitive rip-off fee when David Elbery received the Estate Licenses from the Probate Court on June 3, 2105. David Elbery had almost two weeks to empty the Estate bank accounts before Judge Casey and Registrar Patrick McDermott's Clerk's Office got caught rigging David Elbery's Appointment as Personal Representative of the Estate. During those two weeks that David Elbery had the Court issued License to liquidate the Estate Assets, Attorney Michael A. Crowe would have made the first order of business his "cut" in the form of his rip-off legal fee.
Attorney Michael A. Crowe must be Disbarred for his Deliberate Documented Violation of Law
David Elbery and Attorney Michael A. Crowe thought they could do some of their sneaky business and rig Dave's Appointment as Personal Representative in Violation of Law, but they didn't know what to do when there was Opposition on the Field. They got caught and their sneaky underhanded trick was VACATED.
How is it that Attorney Michael A. Crowe was able to have David Elbery's Petition as Personal Representative of the Estate immediately allowed by the Probate Court without any of Legally mandated Notice required to be given to the heirs of the Estate?
Letter Probate Court
The Norfolk County Probate Court Clerk's Office tries to cover-up their illegal allowance of Judge Casey illegal appointment of David Elbery as Personal Representative of the Estate by claiming (more lies) in their June 10, 2015 letter that "however, the return date of the citation was July 8, 2015." There is absolutely nothing on the Estate docket entries that show "a return date of July 8, 2015"! This "return date of July 8, 2015" is just more deceit from the same Norfolk County Probate Court Clerk's Office that allowed Judge Casey's illegal appointment in the first place. What good is their Fake return date of July 8, 2015 when they never sent a citation (Notice) to the other 4 heirs and what good is that lie of a "return date on the Citation (Notice to the heirs) when as documented by the Norfolk County Probate Court David Elbery had already been appointed on June 3, 2105 and the Probate Court Licenses (letters of Authority) issued to David Elbery?
A "return date" is the date the other 4 heirs to the Estate of June Elbery would have had to Object to David Elbery's Appointment. But the law is the other heirs should have been allowed 30 days to Object, not 5 days as would be the case with a "return date" of June 8, 2015. But this is more feeble lies by the Norfolk County Probate Court to avoid admitting they are wrong and try to confuse somebody who does not know any better. If everything was done according to Mass. Probate law, as is mandated (not an option) the "return date" would have been July 3, 2-2015. But the appointment of David Elbery was done in Violation of Mass. Probate law and no notice was sent the other 4 heirs and that's why when they got caught the Norfolk County Probate Court VACATED David Elbery's Appointment as PR of the Estate of June Elbery and revoked the Licenses or Letters of Authority.
Crowe looks for a Job
Coming Soon - more Court Documents and letters sent by the heirs to Attorney Michael A. Crowe ordering him off the Probate of the Estate and to forget his obnoxious fee that will run approximately $65K. No wonder Crowe evaded being approved by the heirs and refused to alert the heirs to his overpriced legal FEE. Typical Attorney of the Bar, they come in and exploit a situation, in this case death, with fees that can only be defined as Greed. The Massachusetts Legislature re-wrote Probate law in 2012 for the sole purpose of facilitating the citizenry to probate an Estate without need for Attorney's exploitive and needless fees.
The Alleged Work of Attorney Michael A. Crowe for his 5% Fee - A Documented Rip-Off
Here's what David Elbery was suckered into paying so he could buy a friend in Attorney Michael A. Crowe. See the Estate docket entries indicating the legal documents filed by Attorney Michael A. Crowe for his 5% fee.
Petition Military Affidavit Bond see also Bond Sample filled out
That's what David Elbery paid Attorney Michael A. Crowe via a retainer of $5K-$10k to file those 3 legal forms! Then, Crowe was going to clean up on David Elbery at the expense of the other heirs to the Estate to the tune of $50K in fees. What else was Crowe planning to do to make his $50K? File a a real estate transfer when the house that belongs to the heirs is sold. When selling real estate all the seller has to know how to do is take a Check! Nice! Is this Attorney Michael A. Crowe a Crook? And the other Attorneys of the Mass. Bar do the same while controlling the Probate (liquidation of Estates) which is more aptly called a RACQUET!
A real estate transfer usually cost at most $2K for those poor sellers who don't know how to grab a check and deposit it in the bank.
Yes sir, the Attorneys of the Mass. Bar have learned how to Exploit Death itself.
No Wonder the Mass. Legislature re-wrote the Probate Law, so heirs to the Estate could easily probate an Estate themselves. As above those 3 forms Attorney Michael A. Crowe filled out could be done by any citizen.
Flash - Attorney Michael A. Crowe disappeared and his client - David Elbery "threw in the towel". Michael A. Crowe doesn't do litigation! Ha?
That's right David Elbery picked a lawyer who doesn't do law. As soon as the Opposition (other heirs to the Estate) caught Dave and Attorney Michael A. Crowe violating the other heirs rights to a Notice of Dave's Petition to be Personal Representative to handle the liquidation of the Estate, it was all over.
See Legal Document filed by Attorney William D. Crowe for David Elbery that says Under Oath that Dave Quits his application as Personal Representative of the Estate. See paragraph #2, Dave states Under Oath that he wants a "non-family member appointed a Personal Representative" to Probate the Estate; that would include Dave, out.
David Elbery had retained Attorney Michael A. Crowe to the tune of $5K -$10K and when there was work to be done Attorney Michael A. Crowe ran away and turned David Elbery over to brother, Attorney Billy Crowe.
Why Pay an Attorney when the heirs know how to Probate the Estate for Free?
Why did David Elbery pick a lawyer who doesn't do law? Michael Elbery told the other heirs to the Estate that he would handle all this easy Probate Law for FREE and all 5 heirs would save at least $10K, each, by not paying needless Attorney Fees to Probate the Estate. But instead Dave Elbery retained Attorney Michael A. Crowe to represent the Estate in Probate, and then it got worse when he found out his attorney didn't do the tepid litigation required as a result of Michael Elbery's Objection to Dave as Personal Representative of the Estate.
Litigation? Does anyone really consider the legal work required as a result of Michael Elbery's Objection to Dave being PR being litigation?
Hey Dave! Get your money back because a Formal Petition is defined by Massachusetts Probate Law as Litigation! Attorney Michael A. Crowe took David Elbery's money on fraudulent grounds. Dave is owed a refund. What did Attorney Michael A. Crowe do for his fee he took from David Elbery? All Attorney Michael A. Crowe did was commit malpractice and get the Norfolk County Probate Court in trouble.
Michael Elbery's famous Sklut (rhymes with slut) Case against the Shrewsbury cops, caused when the Shrewsbury cops burnt down E-z Mini Storage in order to break in Michael Elbery's garage style E-Z unit, went on for 5 years and featured almost 20 Depositions. That case resulted in Chief Justice of the Federal District of Massachusetts - Federal Judge Mark Wolf resigning when Michael Elbery published Wolf's documented crime Wolf committed during that Federal case in a Federal Courtroom.
Federal Judge Mark Wolf tried to Stop Michael Elbery but he failed. Get a refund on the Cyanide Gas the cops were using .
Did Attorney Michael A. Crowe refund Dave when he quit on Dave because Michael Elbery Objected to Dave as PR?
But First, Some Credit Given to Attorney Michael A. Crowe - the case of "Wife Beating"
Before we review David Elbery's new Attorney's, William D. Crowe's, "litigation," we will recognize that Billy has been a little surly, if not gruff, and raised issues in his litigation that are taken out of context in order to make feeble attempt to defame Michael Elbery and give him an Adverse Recommendation to the Probate Court. The "Old Crowe" raises arrests in his "Answer to Michael Elbery's Objection to David Elbery as Personal Representative of the Estate" as grounds to snuff rights in the Courts of the U.S.A.. Evidently, this sly dog attorney of the Bar, "Billy Boy" Crowe, doesn't understand the theory of Law in our Society. You can't use arrests against a citizen in the U.S.A., unless the arrests resulted in conviction. Billy isn't capable of such Social/legal thought, Billy is too busy currying for favor with his Jew Masters that run the Mass. Bar and Mass. Judiciary.
Did Billy say arrests? Well, in Billy's honor we will raise an arrest of his new client, David Elbery, and also recognize the good work that Michael A. Crowe did when their "big spending client", Dave Elbery, was arrested by the Natick Police.
David Elbery was arrested for assault and battery by the Natick Police back in the mid-1990's. Dave's wife, Barbara Ann Nellis-Elbery, had come home late, as usual, after have an evening of Adultery. Barbara complained that Dave assaulted her, yes sir, an old fashioned "wife beating". The neighbors called the Natick Police and Dave ran and hid in the woods until the sun came up. Attorney Michael A. Crowe came to Dave's rescue and turned Dave into the Natick Police Dept., so Dave could be arrested by the cops. Barbara Ann Nellis decided to drop charges because she feared that evidence of her adultery would be presented during a courtroom prosecution of Dave for his "wife beating". Hey, Dave did pretty good, he got away with giving Barbara Nellis exactly what she deserved.
Barbara sued for divorce soon after her "beating" on various grounds and Attorney Billy Crowe was hired as Dave's divorce lawyer. According to David Elbery, Attorney Billy "The Old Crowe" had a "need to know" about whether Barbara's claims of lack of sexual conduct was true during their marriage as complained by wife Barbara. David Elbery when confronted with this marital sex issue by Attorney Crowe and David Elbery immediately capitulated and paid Barbara off, as she demanded, to end any further exposure of what David Elbery doesn't want anyone to know. Prior to their divorce, Barbara made David Elbery go to the doctor and have his wee-wee checked to make sure David didn't have an organic problem. What kind of a woman is this Barbara Nellis? Did Barbara realize that David Elbery wasn't interested in females? What kind of courtship were those prior 5 years before they finally married at Barbara's insistence? Does David Elbery still have the Polaroid of Tommy Heatly's boner? Now, Crowe's "need to know" is satisfied. But we do give Crowe's brother, Attorney Michael A. Crowe, credit for a nice piece of legal work via his turning Dave into the cops to be processed for arrest and thrown in jail. Dave immediately posted bail. Evidently, Attorney Michael A. Crowe does not do criminal law, either.
David Elbery got away with it.
Enter the "Old Crow" - Attorney William D. Crowe (aka Billy Bushwak, aka Billy's Blunder)
As above, Attorney Michael A. Crowe resigned as lawyer for David Elbery concerning the Estate, and David Elbery has documented that he has "thrown in the towel" as to any hopes of being appointed PR to the Probate of the Estate.
David then got turned over to Michael A. Crowe's brother, Attorney William D. Crowe of Needham, Mass., after Dave was convinced that he should spend $25K on more worthless Crowe Legal fees. Dave put it in writing in the needless "Answer" that Billy Crowe filed in response to Michael Elbery's Objection to Dave as PR of the Estate, and 3 other needless legal documents Crowe filed for Dave, that Dave no longer seeks to be the Personal Representative and wants an Independent Personal Representative Appointed to Probate the Estate. Dave, you quit and threw in the towel (see paragraph #2), you don't have to do anything else. It is all over Dave, Michael Elbery got what he wanted, via his Objection to you as a PR, you are gone and resigned. Now withdraw your Petition to be PR with the Norfolk County Probate Court.
Dave, you did not need to spend another $25K on Attorney Billy Crowe's worthless overpriced "litigation" once you quit your attempt to be PR!
Or did David Elbery have to spend another $25K on Attorney William D. Crowe? David Elbery illegally had the Court issued Licenses that allowed him to liquidate the Estate bank accounts that amounted to over a $1/2 million in cash. Is Dave in a little bit of trouble? No wonder Dave is spending big to impress his Attorney friends from Needham, Mass..
Dave didn't use the simple method, but why? He could have relaxed and had Michael Elbery save him at least another $25K in otherwise more wasted legal fees for Dave's personal representation of the Probate the Estate. We don't need a lawyer to Probate the Estate and that's why the Mass. Legislature revamped the Mass. Probate laws in 2012, so any Citizen can Probate an Estate.
Here is the Alleged "litigation" that David Elbery paid Billy Crowe $25K to write and file with the Norfolk Probate Court.
After Judge John D. Casey allowed Attorney Michael A. Crowe to illegally rig the Appointment of David Elbery as Personal Representative to the Estate, Michael Elbery caught them" red handed" and ordered the Probate Court of Judge John D. Casey and Patrick McDermott to obey the law and honor Due Process of Law as provided by the Massachusetts Legislature, via Mass. Probate Law. The Norfolk Probate Court obeying the demands of Michael Elbery once he caught Judge Casey rigging David Elbery's Appointment as Personal Representative of the Estate immediately VACATED David Elbery's Appointment as Personal Representative. Michael Elbery then filed the two legal documents that countered David Elbery's illegal Appointment by Judge John D. Casey as follows:
Objection to David Elbery PR Affidavits in Support of Object David Elbery PR
Attorney William D. Crowe then took up David Elbery's cause after his brother, Attorney Michael A. Crowe, dumped Dave leaving him "high and dry". Attorney William "the Old Crowe" filed 3 legal documents for pathetic boy, David Elbery. And they are Tardy "Old Crowe" filings for $25K. That's right, Dave Elbery got tricked, again, by the Crowes. The first Crowe didn't do law for his $5K-$10K retainer and the second and "Old Crowe" filed his $25K worth of junk legal filings NOT TIMELY. It is only limited to the Imagination what these Crowe Crooks would steal from the Estate in the form of their Crap legal fees, if either were successful in being "Attorney for the Estate". If David Elbery is appointed Personal Representative, then a Crowe will be an Attorney for the Estate. These Crowes must eat expensive bird food; these Crowes certainly prove they like to "feather their Nest".
Attorney William D. Crowe's late filed junk legal documents as follows:
Crow Answer to Objection Crow Motion to Strike Crow Motion for Independent PR, etc.
And Michael Elbery Responded to the 3 Crowe legal filings as next line:
Objection to Crow's Motion to Strike Objection to Apt. IPR Motion Cancel 10-5-15 Hearing
Like Attorney Bobby "the Toff" Sheketoff said, "Bill Crowe knows how to make Money on law." It looks like the "Toffster" was right about something. The only time the citizenry is willing to spend money on legal fees charged by Attorneys' of the Bar is when they are "behind the Eight Ball". Yes sir, the law and its enforcers, the Bar, causes exploitation of the Masses; you better have lots of money, if you want your Rights in the Courts, unless you are one those rare exceptions of lawyer who didn't need Law School.
Attorney Billy Crowe thinks he's hurting Michael Elbery's Feelings.
Billy Crowe made what he thinks is a vicious attack on Michael Elbery via the Motion to Strike he filed for David Elbery.
Hey Dopey! I have been publishing and promoting those same issues for years on this Web Site; the same issues you itemize in your Motion to Strike.

Can Billy Crowe save the New World Order - his buddies Toff, Wolf and Saris watch as Billy knows how to make $, score points and get his bread buttered. Billy thought he was hurting Michael Elbery feelings by calling him names. Hey, dum-dum, I am proud that I learned law in a State Penitentiary and won my first Jury Trial in Worcester Superior Ct. 2 years after I started reading law books in Prison law libraries in late 1994. See the Attorney Arthur Goldstein Case.
Coming Soon - Billy's Scandal - set the Way Back Machine, way back for this one! They all have Scandal! 1968,what a year!
No, the Scandal is not Billy asking Michael Elbery for a job in the summer of 1974. I know this little Squirt from decades ago, long before Roe v. Wade. Billy avoids rape charges and more.
Just when I finished the research to Solve the Kennedy Assassination and the Truth about the 911 Events the Crowes give me more ammo to add to www.MassInjustice.Org. However, this Web Site apologizes that this new subject matter of Crowes being less outrageous than usual, these Crowes are a boring pair.
David Elbery's Divorce and Crow's "need to know"
Michael A. Crowe is David Elbery's buddy and has acted as his personal lawyer in the past, but it has been disclosed that it was Attorney Billy Crowe who handled David Elbery's Divorce from wife Barbara Ann Nellis in the mid-1990's. The heirs to the Estate do not want David Elbery's personal attorney functioning as Attorney to Probate the Estate because, amongst other reasons, Crowe is biased in David Elbery's favor. That explains, in part, how it was that David Elbery was appointed as Personal Representative to handle the Estate Probate without the legally required notification to the other heirs. They had a deal all planned. Easy money for that lackluster Attorney of the Mass. Bar, Michael A. Crowe. And Dave makes a friend by blowing the Estate money that belongs to the heirs. And does the Probate Court care? No, the Court facilitates the plans of Dave and the Crowe attorneys.
The heirs do not want Attorney Billy Crowe appointed Special Representative to Probate the Estate, if that's what he meant we he said, "you might object to the Special Representative appointed by the Probate Court to handle the Estate." You are right "Old Crowe", the heirs do not need any attorney we can do it ourselves and it will cost us zero instead of paying a 5% toll to a rip-off lawyer who will do next to nothing to Probate the Estate and steal at least $50K in fees.
Whatever did the "Old Crow" need to know?
It is surprising that David Elbery has retained another Crowe, Billy Crowe, as an attorney at 2015, because Dave used Billy Crowe to handle his Divorce from wife Barbara. David Elbery, in about 1995, bitched menacingly about Crowe's "need to know" about certain details of Dave and Barbara's marital relationship. Seems Dave wanted to avoid certain details even to his Divorce attorney concerning the marital problems. What was it that Barbara claimed in her divorce suit that David Elbery wanted kept secret from even Attorney "Billy Bushwak" Crowe. More to come on Big Dave's Divorce and what Crowe needed to know and what Barbara knew. Barbara Nellis - Horvath had Dave go to a physician to check his wee-wee. According to Dave, Wife Barbara wanted to make sure it was not a physical/medical problem causing her not to have a child during their marriage.
Isn't it ironic that immediately after their Divorce, Dave had Ed Fusaro over for weekends at his Cape Cod home in Falmouth. Ed Fusaro was the "Maid of Honor" and walked Barbara Ann Nellis down the marriage isle into a marriage that was doomed before it was started. .
More Scandal coming Soon on Attorney of the Bar, Billy D. Crowe (aka the "Old Crow"). You won't be disappointed.
