Gov. Cuomo & AG Underwood Ignore Sex Offender Scandal

Governor Andrew Cuomo has failed to protect extremely vulnerable women and children from sexual predators and is illegally placing level 2 & 3 convicted sex offenders to live with the disabled in State and private run group homes

Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Attorney General Underwood are ignoring the safety of the disabled and refuse to remove convicted sex offenders from group homes

These agencies are operating almost identically to the Catholic Church in their internal handling of sex crimes. These illegal practices must be stopped now.”

— Michael Carey – Civil Rights & Disability Rights Advocate

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Jonathan Carey Foundation was established by civil rights and disability rights advocate Michael Carey to protect our most vulnerable, which includes all people with disabilities. Thousands of people with developmental disabilities are being sexually assaulted and raped within New York State’s extremely dangerous mental health agencies and group homes and rarely are there ever any criminal prosecutions. The cover-ups are happening all of the time because Governor Andrew Cuomo has directed sex crimes to be internally reported, instead of reported to 911 call systems so local police can respond and arrest the sexual predators. The State’s MO, if it isn’t documented, it didn’t happen. The cover-ups of sexual assaults and rapes in New York State’s mental health care system overseen by Governor Cuomo are massive in scope.

On top of almost all sexual assaults and rapes of our most vulnerable being covered-up, Governor Cuomo and his agencies for years have been unconscionably placing convicted sex offenders in these State and private facilities and group homes. The Commissioners of the Department of Corrections and the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities and anyone else involved are directly endangering the safety and welfare of incompetent individuals which is a class E felony in New York State.

These agencies are operating almost identically to the Catholic Church in their internal handling of sex crimes. These illegal practices must be stopped now.

“A person is guilty of endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person in the first degree when he knowingly acts in a manner likely to be injurious to the physical, mental or moral welfare of a person who is unable to care for himself or herself because of physical disability, mental disease or defect.

Endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person in the first degree is a class E felony.”

Other state and federal laws require safe living environments for all individuals with disabilities that are free from abuse and neglect. Everyone knows that it is gross neglect to place sexual predators in homes with our most vulnerable and a recipe for sexual assaults and rapes.

These statements have been released by New York State Senator Rob Ortt who is also the Mental Health Committee Chairman;

“According to the report, these sex offenders are being placed in homes without notice, raising concerns about how widespread this occurrence may be.”

“This practice must stop immediately,” said Ortt. “In no circumstance should the most vulnerable members of our society be placed in the same home as individuals convicted of preying on the vulnerable. The Level of government incompetence displayed here is astonishing.”

Marc Molinaro who is the candidate for governor in New York State said on Twitter “This is criminal” and then in an official statement to media it is quoted “Marc Molinaro says placing sex offenders among the general population of disabled people violates a state law, which is a felony.”

https://www.fingerlakesdailynews.com/2018/09/25/molinaro-warns-of-sex-predators-in-developmental-disabilities-group-homes/

Congresswoman Claudia Tenney has written Attorney General Underwood and has called for investigations and a full accounting of convicted sex offenders in group home with the disabled.

“Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (NY-22) is calling for an immediate investigation into news reports that the Cuomo Administration is actively placing convicted sex offenders among the general population of state-run group homes and facilities for the disabled. In a letter to the Attorney General, Rep. Tenney also requested a full accounting of any convicted sex offenders who have already been placed in state-run homes for the disabled.”

https://tenney.house.gov/news/documentsingle.aspx?DocumentID=349

Michael Carey has written and called Attorney General Underwood and there has been no written responses as of yet or any returned phone calls from the Attorney General regarding stopping these illegal practices that directly endangers our most vulnerable. Attorney General Underwood's main job is to protect and ensure equal rights for all New Yorkers. To date over four dozen convicted sex offenders illegally placed to live in group homes with the disabled have been located and less than ten percent of counties have been looked at so far from a partial list of facilities.

Washington County District Attorney Anthony Jordan has also written Attorney General Underwood regarding investigating these crimes.

Here is what a convicted sexual predator and pedophile said of New York State’s mental health care system, it is “a predators dream.”

"The lack of supervision there made it easy to do what I did," DeProspero said in a handwritten affidavit obtained by The Associated Press. "I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream."

http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/new-york-pay-3m-family-boy-molested-group-home-article-1.2977392

Governor Cuomo, Attorney General Underwood and his agency heads involved continue to remain silent. Numerous calls for the governor and attorney general to stop these illegal placements and for the immediate removal of all convicted sex offenders from group homes have been ignored. There is a clear appearance that there is no regard for the safety or equal rights of 1,000,000 New Yorkers with disabilities. It is time for the top New York State officials involved in these criminal activities and the criminal cover-ups of almost all reported sexual assaults and rapes by Cuomo’s Justice Center abuse hotline to be held accountable. The purposeful placement of convicted sex offenders to live in the same homes with people with disabilities violates State and federal laws, it is illegal. These civil rights atrocities and crimes must be swiftly investigated by the US Department of Justice.

Gov. Cuomo must remove convicted sex offenders from group homes

Governor Andrew Cuomo has ignored countless pleas by Civil Rights and Disability Rights Advocate Michael Carey to stop all illegal and unconstitutional practices and to finally protect our most vulnerable from preventable sexual assaults and rapes, but he has refused.

Now caught, Gov. Cuomo and his administration must stop the illegal placements and remove all sexual predators from group homes throughout New York State.

I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream.”

— Stephen DeProspero – convicted sexual predator and pedophile

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Jonathan Carey Foundation is gradually rolling out the numbers of convicted sex offenders found in state and private facilities and group homes for people with disabilities. People in many different positions of authority and parents are outraged.

Here are some direct quotes published by the Gazette Editorial Board on September 26, 2018;

Editorial: No sex offenders in state group homes

Safety of developmentally disabled residents should come first

“No matter how carefully you monitor convicted sex offenders, and no matter how benign their behavior might be because of some developmental disability they might have, these convicted criminals should not be placed in intimate proximity to their potential victims.

Yet, they are, with the state’s full knowledge and blessing.

That practice needs to end.

The Jonathan Carey Foundation, named after a boy killed in a state-run residential facility in Niskayuna in 2007, used the state’s open records laws to discover that 12 group homes in the state have been housing nearly 40 paroled Level 2 and 3 sex offenders.

Level 3 sex offenders are considered at the highest risk to commit another sex crime and harm others, while Level 2 offenders are at moderate risk.

These sex offenders are being placed without notice in group homes along with other special needs people, according to state Sen. Rob Ortt, chairman of the Senate’s Mental Health And Developmental Disabilities Committee.

State officials say this has been a practice for years.”

“There’s no way a Level 2 or Level 3 sex predator should be around vulnerable individuals like these, no matter how much they’ve been vetted and how much treatment they receive.”

https://dailygazette.com/article/2018/09/26/editorial-no-sex-offenders-in-state-group-homes

This news is from the Adirondack Daily Enterprise story on September 27, 2018;

Sex offenders in group homes for disabled isn’t new in Tupper Lake

“An analysis showing dozens of sex offenders being housed in state group homes has received news coverage from several print and television outlets, but this practice of housing sex offenders in group homes for the developmentally disabled and alongside the general community is old news in Tupper Lake.”

“Last week, the Albany Times Union, Glens Falls Post-Star and Channel 13 from Albany spoke with Michael Carey, an advocate for the developmentally disabled, who linked records of 25 registered sex offenders in Washington, Franklin, Suffolk and Saratoga counties with the addresses of OPWDD facilities in each county.”

“McMahon told the Enterprise for a past article. “As a former employee, I know that some of these people [in group homes] are very dangerous sex offenders.”

“There have been many incidents there where clients have attacked staff,” McMahon said. “There’s been incidents there where residents from Sunmount have actually grabbed a female employee and tried to drag into a bedroom.”

“In 2015 Thomas Perrault was found guilty of third-degree assault after he dragged a female staff member into his room and attacked her at Sunmount’s group home at 390 Hosley Ave.”

“Sunmount’s main facility is situated directly across the street from L.P. Quinn Elementary School and bordered by residential neighborhoods. It’s group homes are located in neighborhoods.”

Almost all sexual assaults and rapes reported to Governor Andrew Cuomo’s abuse hotline numbering in the thousands are purposefully never reported to local police. Rarely are sex crimes committed against the disabled in New York State ever criminally investigated or presented to county elected district attorney’s which is obstruction of justice. Within the New York State Office of People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) alone approximately 1,300 sex abuse cases are reported annually, which are staggering numbers, yet approximately only 3% of these sexual assaults will ever be reported according to a reputable report called Prevalence of violence.

This Television piece puts the nails in the coffin of exposing this corruption;

https://www.whec.com/news/advocate-fights-to-remove-sex-offenders-from-group-homes-for-the-disabled/5086313/

“It is illegal to place convicted sex offenders and sexual predators in group homes to easily access and prey on our most vulnerable. Multiple State and federal laws are without question being violated. Moving convicted sex offenders into group homes with the developmentally disabled, which in most cases is no different than moving them in with children knowingly places our most vulnerable in a likely position of being sexually assaulted or raped.” – Michael Carey –Civil Rights and Disability Rights Advocate

Here is what a convicted sexual predator and pedophile said of New York State’s mental health care system, it is “a predators dream.”

"The lack of supervision there made it easy to do what I did," DeProspero said in a handwritten affidavit obtained by The Associated Press. "I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream."

http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/new-york-pay-3m-family-boy-molested-group-home-article-1.2977392

Numerous appeals have gone to Governor Andrew Cuomo or Attorney General Barbara Underwood by Michael Carey, U.S. representatives, New York State legislators, District Attorney’s and family members to immediately stop these crimes that directly endanger our most vulnerable. To date, both Governor Cuomo and Attorney General Underwood are looking the other way.

Your help is vitally needed to protect and defend those that cannot speak or defend themselves.

Halscott Megaro PA (N/A:N/A)

This is a heartbreaking case and I could not help but get involved even though Corvain does not have any money to pay. He has two little daughters who will never go to the movies with their dad …”

— Patrick Megaro, Defense Lawyer

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, September 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The highest court of the United States is right now considering whether to hear the appeal of Corvain Cooper (“grant a writ of certiorari”), who has been sentenced to life in prison for non-violent marijuana offenses under the so-called “Three Strikes Law.” The petition by his attorney Patrick Megaro, who has been representing him pro bono (without pay, as a community service) is being distributed and reviewed among the Supreme Court Justices. During this process, each of the Justices of the Supreme Court receive a copy of the petition, the Justices' law clerks read and review the petition, and create memoranda outlining the case. The Justices will then meet to decide whether to grant the petition and agree to hear the appeal, or not.

Attorney Megaro has filed several petitions in support of Cooper, and more than 18,000 people have signed with their names the petition to release Corvain Cooper. See https://www.change.org/p/donald-trump-release-corvain-cooper-from-life-imprisonment-without-parole-for-marijuana

Through his attorney Megaro, Corvain Cooper has simultaneously petitioned President Donald Trump for executive clemency and commutation of his sentence of life imprisonment without parole.

In response to the appeal filed by attorney Megaro, the United States Government has submitted a response, opposing the appeal and urging the Supreme Court to deny Corvain Cooper relief from his sentence.

Corvain Cooper and his family, particularly his young daughter, remain hopeful that the Supreme Court will grant the petition.

Explains attorney Patrick Megaro: “This is a heartbreaking case and I could not help but get involved even though Corvain does not have any money to pay. He has two little daughters who will never go to the movies with their dad or be led to the altar by him unless the Supreme Court intervenes or President Trump grants clemency. This is a very important cause – it is estimated that there are about 2,000 people … men and women, fathers and mothers, in prison for life for non-violent drug offenses, oftentimes involving very small amounts of such substances. The punishment does not fit the crime, and in fact it is so disproportionate that it makes a human being sick in the stomach. The reality of the situation is that drug law reform, especially marijuana reform, is at the forefront in many state legislature’s agendas. Marijuana is now legalized, decriminalized, or approved for medicinal use in one form or another in the majority of States. Due Process and fundamental fairness are at the heart of this case.”

Corvain Cooper was charged in the United States District Court for the Western District of North Carolina with conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute 1,000 kilograms or more of marijuana, and conspiracy to commit money laundering and structuring transactions. A special information was also filed against Cooper, alleging two prior felony convictions for possession of drugs (one for marijuana, one for codeine cough syrup) in the California state courts. The filing triggered a mandatory life sentence without parole. The reason for the unusually harsh sentence is the so-called “Three Strikes” law. These laws require a person guilty of committing a drug felony and two other previous drug felony convictions to serve a mandatory life sentence in prison. The “Three Strikes” law significantly increases the prison sentences of persons convicted of a felony who have been previously convicted of two or more violent crimes or drug felonies, and limits the ability of these offenders to receive a punishment other than a life sentence.

Mr. Cooper tried appealing his conviction and sentence, stating that the sentence of life for non-violent crimes was against his Eighth Amendment (Amendment VIII) of the United States Constitution which prohibits the federal government from imposing excessive bail, excessive fines, or cruel and unusual punishments. However, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit upheld the case, and the Supreme Court declined to even hear the case.

The State of California enacted Proposition 47 in 2014, which re-categorized several non-violent offenses as misdemeanors. Prior to enacting Proposition 47, possession of marijuana was considered a felony. This also allowed people who had prior felony convictions under the old statute to vacate them.

Proposition 64 (the Adult Use of Marijuana Act) was enacted on November 9, 2016, by the State of California which legalized the use of recreational marijuana. This Act permitted certain people who had been convicted of marijuana felony offenses to apply to vacate those convictions and reclassify them as misdemeanors.

Says Patrick Megaro, “I have been representing Mr. Cooper and I have said from day one, that I am in this fight to represent Corvain Cooper no matter how long it takes. Today, is yet another example of my strong commitment.”

About the Corvain Cooper Case

The underlying court cases are United States v. Cooper, 624 Fed.Appx. 819 (4th Cir. 2015), and United States v. Cooper, 714 Fed.Appx. 259 (4th Cir. 2018). According to a press release of the U.S. Attorney’s Office, “from in or about 2004 through January 2013, Cooper was involved in a drug conspiracy that trafficked marijuana from California to the Charlotte area. Court records show that Cooper was charged with conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute at least one thousand kilograms of marijuana as well as money laundering conspiracy and structuring financial transactions through banking institutions to avoid IRS reporting requirements. Cooper, along with two co-defendants, Evelyn LaChapelle and Natalia Wade, were convicted of all charges on October 18, 2013, following a three-day trial.” He was sentenced to life in prison on June 18, 2014.

Calling for emergency actions to protect people with disabilities from convicted sex offenders

Governor Cuomo must immediately stop the placement of convicted sex offenders in group homes and remove the many dozens, if not hundreds, already placed. These illegal practices grossly endanger our most vulnerable.

The Cuomo administration is illegally placing convicted sex offenders into group homes with the developmentally disabled

I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream.”

— Stephen DeProspero – convicted sexual predator and pedophile

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — State and federal laws continue to be violated. Laws that are currently in place that prohibit placing sex offenders to live with vulnerable people with developmental disabilities are being ignored. As the list of sex offenders located by the Jonathan Carey Foundation continue to mount up, nearing 50, the Adirondack Daily Enterprise reports that sex offenders are living directly across the street from an elementary school.

http://www.adirondackdailyenterprise.com/news/local-news/2018/09/sex-offenders-in-group-homes-for-disabled-isnt-new-in-tupper-lake/

“A person is guilty of endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person in the first degree when he knowingly acts in a manner likely to be injurious to the physical, mental or moral welfare of a person who is unable to care for himself or herself because of physical disability, mental disease or defect.

Endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person in the first degree is a class E felony.” – NYS Penal Law 260.25

U.S. Code 42 Section 15001 (5) individuals with developmental disabilities are at greater risk than the general population of abuse, neglect, financial and sexual exploitation, and the violation of their legal and human rights;

U.S. Code 42 Section 15009 (a) In GENERAL Congress makes the following findings respecting the rights of individuals with developmental disabilities:

U.S. Code 42 Section 15009 (B) (i) provision of care that is free of abuse, neglect, sexual and financial exploitation, and violations of legal and human rights and that subjects individuals with developmental disabilities to no greater risk of harm than others in the general population;

The Jonathan Carey Foundation has located dozens of convicted sex offenders and sexual predators living in group homes with the developmentally disabled with minimal research of a partial list of group homes in these counties so far; Suffolk, Franklin, Erie, Monroe, Oneida and Washington counties.

https://www.whec.com/news/advocate-fights-to-remove-sex-offenders-from-group-homes-for-the-disabled/5086313/

“It is illegal to place convicted sex offenders and sexual predators in group homes to easily access and prey on our most vulnerable. Multiple State and federal laws are without question being violated. Moving convicted sex offenders into group homes with the developmentally disabled, which in most cases is no different than moving them in with children knowingly places our most vulnerable in a likely position of being sexually assaulted or raped.” – Michael Carey –Civil Rights and Disability Rights Advocate

Here is what a convicted sexual predator and pedophile said of New York State’s mental health care system, it is “a predators dream.”

"The lack of supervision there made it easy to do what I did," DeProspero said in a handwritten affidavit obtained by The Associated Press. "I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream."

http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/new-york-pay-3m-family-boy-molested-group-home-article-1.2977392

Numerous appeals have gone to Governor Andrew Cuomo or Attorney General Barbara Underwood by Michael Carey, U.S. representatives, New York State legislators, District Attorney’s and family members to immediately stop these crimes that directly endanger our most vulnerable. Your help is vitally needed to protect and defend those that cannot speak or defend themselves.

Wyoming Mesothelioma Victims Center Now Places a Huge Emphasis on Seeing to It That a US Navy Veteran with Mesothelioma in Wyoming hires the Nation's Most Capable Attorneys to Ensure Better Compensation

Before you hire a mesothelioma attorney please call us at 800–714-0303 and compare the qualifications of who we consider to be the nation’s most skilled mesothelioma attorneys to any other law firm.”

— Wyoming Mesothelioma Victims Center

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, September 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Wyoming Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “If you are a US Navy Veteran who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma and you live anywhere in Wyoming or you are their family member please call us anytime at 800-714-0303 so at a minimum you can receive incredibly honest advice about what specific mesothelioma attorneys you should be talking to and which ones to avoid.

“Our bottom line is we want a US Navy Veteran or person in Wyoming with mesothelioma to receive the very best possible financial compensation results and retaining the services of a very skilled mesothelioma attorney is required for the best possible financial settlement results.” http://Wyoming.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Wyoming Mesothelioma Victims Center is extremely concerned that most US Navy Veterans with mesothelioma in Wyoming will never obtain the very best possible financial compensation for this rare cancer because they had no way of telling the difference between mesothelioma marketing law firms or one of the nation’s premier mesothelioma attorneys-who has first- hand experience doing mesothelioma compensation claims for US Navy Veterans-nationwide.

If the Wyoming Mesothelioma Victims Center had one really vital financial compensation tip for a US Navy Veteran in Wyoming with mesothelioma it would be, “Before you hire a mesothelioma attorney please call us at 800–714-0303 and compare the qualifications of who we consider to be the nation’s most skilled mesothelioma attorneys to any other lawyer, or law firm. Please don’t allow yourself to get shortchanged when it comes to mesothelioma compensation for a US Navy Veteran or anyone else in Wyoming with this rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure.” http://Wyoming.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Wyoming Mesothelioma Victims Center wants to emphasize their free services are available to people anywhere in Wyoming in communities such as Cheyenne, Casper, Laramie, Jackson hole, Gillette, or Rock Springs.

For the best possible mesothelioma treatment options near Wyoming the Wyoming Mesothelioma Victims Center strongly recommends the following heath care facility with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at this very prestigious hospital.

* The Mayo Clinic Rochester, Minnesota: https://www.mayoclinic.org/departments-centers/mayo-clinic-cancer-center.

Individuals in the state of Wyoming could have been exposed to asbestos while serving in the US Navy, or while working at a power plant, oil refinery, in the oil, gas or coal production business, as a plumber, a boiler technician, as an auto repairman, as an electrician, or in the construction industry. In most cases, the exposure to asbestos caused mesothelioma at one of these types of workplaces and the exposure took place in the 1950′s, 1960′s, 1970′s, or 1980′s. Mesothelioma typically takes three to five decades to appear.

The Mesothelioma Victims Center is a national advocate 100% focused in on doing everything possible to ensure people with mesothelioma in Alabama and every state receive the best possible financial compensation settlement results. The group offers on the spot access to some of the nation’s most skilled and experienced mesothelioma attorneys because to receive the very best possible financial compensation a diagnosed person must be represented by the most capable mesothelioma lawyers in the United States as they would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Yellow Pages Goes Green® Announces Four New Online Petitions for Ban on Print Phone Directories

Publisher continues push for more legislative action against phone companies printing and delivering unwanted phone books in the United States.

Cities and Towns can use their litter laws as tools to enforce these efforts.”

— Michael Keegan

COMMACK, NY, UNITED STATES, September 27, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — YellowPagesGoesGreen.org is helping municipalities and local governments around the country establish ordinances to mandate Yellow Pages and White Pages only be delivered to home and offices that ask for them. Municipalities and local government that provide trash services are concerned about the landfill cost and why they must absorb the cost of handling telephone directories. YPPG supports this mission.

An innovator in digital telephone directory services delivers over 28.5 million Yellow Page listings and over 200 million White page listings throughout the United States. In addition, YPGG’s “Paperless Petition” was a pioneer in the phone book “opt-out” movement which helped abolish obsolete print telephone directories by prompting awareness in both creating an official opt-out process and continues to push for a national ‘opt-in’ model for printed phone books.

To participate in the online petitions visit these links:

"Cities and Towns can use their litter laws as tools to enforce these efforts." said YPGG CEO Michael Keegan.

YellowPagesGoesGreen.org asks the question "Why do we get three to four pounds of paper dropped on out front door multiple times per year by various telephone directory companies and we are supposed to dispose of them?" Stop the nonsense and the cost placed on the consumer. If we want a book we will request one. If we do not want a book delivered, stop delivering them. YellowPagesGoesGreen.org had spent years contacting local telephone companies to provide them with consumer’s names and addresses telling them to stop the nonsense. This did not cost users anything.
YellowPagesGoesGreen.org has developed its own eco-friendly alternative to the Yellow Pages which is free for consumers to use to find local business listings. Our service is continually changed and kept current so you are not potentially looking at several months or even year old information.

Dunlap, Bennett & Ludwig Expands on its Estate Planning Services – Rhonda A. Miller joins the Northern Virginia offices to focus on Estate Planning.

Rhonda has a great breadth of special experience assisting clients to implement tax-efficient strategies that preserve their wealth for successive generations.”

— Thomas Dunlap, Founding Partner

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, September 27, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig, a leading corporate and intellectual property law firm with law offices across the U.S., Puerto Rico, London and Toronto, proudly announces the addition of Rhonda A. Miller as a Partner. Ms. Miller will be working in the Estate Planning practice of DBL. This includes special needs trusts, asset protection trusts, spousal lifetime access trusts, charitable remainder trust, qualified small business trusts and other trust used to minimize or eliminate capital gains and estate tax. Rhonda is also a community property expert.

DBL Founding Partner Thomas Dunlap welcomes Miller to the firm, stating, “Rhonda has a great breadth of special experience assisting clients to implement tax-efficient strategies that preserve their wealth for successive generations.

She is often hired by personal injury attorneys to handle guardianships, conservatorships, and special needs trusts for their injured or disabled clients.

Ms. Miller says “It is so hard to choose the right lawyer. Most people do not even know where to start. My advice is to always choose an attorney who only practices in estate planning. Then find one that makes you feel comfortable. I try to make my clients feel comfortable by sharing what I have learned through the years personally and professionally. Often it is through that interaction that helps guide clients to make the right decisions for themselves.” She also added “My Father told me that I should find my passion and do it for a living because you spend a lot of your time working. I am pleased to say I have found my passion. Not just the law but specifically in estate planning. I truly enjoy working with my clients and love getting to know them on a more personal level.”
