no i cannot
attend….the court case on the 15th of December 2012…. I do not want to be
in a court room with patrick weber who threatened me ever again! Plus that is only a few days from
now…. I have not left my home in
months….my anxiety level is extremely high when people harm me and my home
ownership…. I can be present via
skype if that is what the judge wants.. that way we can video tape it and have it for evidence
if needed later for other cases…. but really?….What the hell is going on? I thought we had to have someone in place to
be the guardian when we request he (Patrick Weber) be removed?
and i told you i haven’t been able to reach scott renshaw…. He is
located in Texas…. right now living with his parents… but other wise fits
the criteria… I will still try to reach him maybe he can come here for a few
months or just a month when i can have a real
evaluation by qualified persons to give me back all my rights….
(is this the court
hearing that my mother mother was speaking about concerning the HOA? ) ( i
wrote this line before speaking with you…. and knowing it was concerning the
guardianship case…. )
I want you
to ask for a continuance…except for
removing Patrick Weber…. for
everything especially if it is…. and to still have him removed…do i need to
send information to the judge…. did you send the paperwork in the mail?
Aren’t I supposed to be made aware of these things things way in advance?.. you told me the next
date for the court to be available l would
be after Christmas.. remember i told you while in tears the last time we
spoke… that this would be the worst Christmas ever? ….
Is there another
letter to bring up my anxiety lever and
start me crying / throwing up? …
another letter to make me throw up? definitely don’t need all this hardship for trying to remove a
guardian that does not do his job.. ( from the beginning he never even did a
plan of action report and i can site tons of infractions and neglect and
misconduct charges that he has doesn’t
throughout this past year while he has been my guardian… ) i cant believe that the judge have me keep a
guardian that made me so upset that i was shaking… and ready to
throw up at the court house…..
I just finished
speaking with you concerning this whole ordeal…. I am hoping that you
really are on my side in this court
case… my wishes are to not have
Patrick Weber as my guardian especially since he has harmed my life… and my
home ownership… why would i think he would actually do anything to epresent
me and help me when he has not done
anything so far…. . I do not want him
representing me anymore since his actions have directly affected my life and my
home ownership…. in a negative
What type of
judge would make me have an abusive guardian?
I was supposed to have
someone who i could count on who helped
me not hurt me…
I am also
requesting the court records… reporting…. right? i think you said they were in the form of
CD’s of the court proceedings I was not
able to attend… how much are they?
As per the bank account
i thought i emailed you…about that….. i know i filed a police report… someone opened a
bank account using my name and my social security number…. in late
October..at Patrick favorite bank… regions bank… where he had my mo go to
try to get a loan for me…. i still have not been told where the $5,000.00 is
that my mother put aside for me…. to use for this mess…. also i was told that a woman went into the
social security office and asked to have my medical disability sent to her bank
account… when i asked my mom she said it wasn’t her it must have been Patrick
Weber who was trying to get my money… these are the situation i have had to
deal with while patrick weber has been
my guardian …. along with his
threats… at the court house and
his sick amusement at causing me to get upset…. His unprofessional behavior with the HOA paralegal….
when i guess he tried to waive the statute of limitations… flirt with the HOA paralegal / lawyer….His conduct
disgusts me… and already i get upset just thinking of how horrid it is that
someone who was entrusted by the courts…
to help me… has damaged my life
in such a short amount of
time….. Its worse than tragic…. It is unforgivable…. I needed his help
legally …. and his negligence and misconduct and abuse have left me with even
worse anxiety… and time limits on a
horrible situation that i told you anything that happens to me is on his
head…. he is directly responsible….
whatever happens… i hold him and his abuse,
neglect and misconduct completely responsible!
definitely say… He is no hero…. sincerely mary jean ziska

Larry, is there something I should know concerning court dates in the HOA? Or
removing Patrick Weber? I called my mom’s phone
and received a message that she was expecting to go to court and to hear
from the HOA next week by Wednesday or Thursday ? what does that mean? when we’re in the process of trying to
remove Patrick Weber as my guardian? Why
would my mother be going to court concerning my HOA case and not you or Patrick
Weber? I know this only because I researched information for retaining a new
lawyer with the legal experience in real estate law, homeowners Association
law, and mediation disputes. The company I located which would assist in
finding a lawyer appropriate to my needs
and they required a retainer fee of $180. A membership with the company would reduce the cost of the lawyer’s hourly fees and
include other benefits. When I first
spoke with my mother, she thought this was a great idea and requested the
telephone number and name of the company. The company is known on the web as www.rocket lawyer.com. I think this is a wise idea since legal
advice and assistance is expensive and
Patrick weber was not able to retain anyone to assist when he contacted legal
aid. I was looking at the Florida
statutes and it looked like legal representation would be assigned on a
rotating basis in an office such as
legal aid… isn’t that the case? When I
next called my mother’s phone/ home phone line I was told the services of this
company would be retained after decisions from the HOALA were made? Which was
completely different than when I spoke with her and she liked the idea of beign
proactive and retaining competent legal help asap!… What is going on?
per the Florida statute 744 I am
guaranteed legal representation. I am guaranteed competent legal representation
in the fields necessary for any court/legal/financial areas under the
guardianship ruling. Since Patrick Weber has no knowledge of how to defend any
foreclosure suits, as it is not his expertise, I am by law guaranteed a lawyer
who can do what Patrick cannot do. Does the HOA understand this legal
principle? I was told the verbal agreement between Patrick Weber and the
homeowners Association was not binding and so I was upset for weeks over
nothing? I am glad that his horrid deal is not binding especialy since he never discussed it with me nor did he even
take into consideration my budget..
which he was well aware of when I gave
him a copy in march…. I also was told
the homeowners Association is deciding whether or not to even take a settlement deal concerning payments on the back fees owed….? I thought
the whole court case was based on their acceptance of a settlement and that the
settlement had not been decided upon. If this has not been the case, please
explain what has been going on for this entire year.
was told the idea Patrick Weber came up with is only a verbal agreement not
sanctioned by me or even discussed with me and not binding in the courts, therefore I am not being held
responsible for his horrid deal and mishandling of this legal situation or his mishandling of my guardianship and my
freedom and my life am I?
I also want to make sure that he cannot touch my medical disability
money especially since he was basing his stealing of my money to pay the HOA……(
which was a deal that was only based on his verbal agreement and his lies
for trying to obtain my money under false pretenses and false accusations
of how the money is being spent each
month!)Did you know his lie in a legal document represents fraud uponthe court…
and is in itself a reason for removal of a guardian! Within the court paperwork I received, he
lied…. By saying he did not know where my money was being spent and continued to lie by saying I was
mishandling my money. It is the exact
opposite! when in fact I am paying my
bills with the medical disability money.
I have and can’t produce paid bills to that fact concerning my electric,
and other bills necessary to living expenses… I can prove I can and have been paying my own bills
appropriately in full amounts and on time
for years! I even wrote him and
you concerning my concerns about how unreasonable his offer was concerning the HOA
which would have left me without any money for buying items such as
tampons, and toilet paper… should I send those emails to the judge or can you tell him or her for me…
As per my
request for complete independence I thought of another way to prove my ability
to care for myself and my home….. A have
eight cameras throughout my home for security purposes that record
everything! The tapes would prove my
ability to care for myself , ie daily chores… such as dishes, cooking,
eating, cleaning, laundry, etc.
All the proof of howl I can care
for my self is not really even
encompassed within the guardianship parameters….. I still believe
that a 1500.00 is not necessary and is
another example of his mishandling and mismanagement of the entire case…. How much is he being paid again to be my
guardian? And at what intervals are his payments begin made?….. just wondering
…. What his motivations is for not allowing my complete independence restored, or legal council… it
would appear to me that since he was overburdened to the point that he could not and does
not return any emails or phone
calls from me… that he must be over burdened at work and I would assume that he would want this mater resolved and off his
case list as soon as possible unless
there is a financial motivation I am unaware of that makes him keep me as his ward and want unnecessary
tests that cost sooo much to the
tax payers… when he is still not addressing the entire reason he was
enlisted as my guardian, and why he lied to me about keeping him as my guardian the first day I
met with him and with you in his conference
room…. And he told me that I needed to keep him as my guardian for
financial reasons so that he could represent me in legal matters…. I even put a request for independence in a letter requesting my complete independence
restored in March 2012….and he convinced me to do otherwise…. I can prove that
I can cook or clean or care for myself and
take care of my home and my resources….. But it seems absolutely unnecessary to do so since Patrick weber’s
assistance was only as a limited
guardianship and was only to assist in the financial and legal matters pursuant
to the problems with the homeowners Association past-due fees. As per the Florida statutes , when a limited guardianship is put in place
for a specific purpose…. When that purpose is over, or no longer necessary….the independence of
the ward is restored…. Patrick Weber was
not able to assist in any way possible
and since Patrick Weber was unable to assist with the homeowners
Association negotiations I’ve been trying to contract other lawyers to assist
me where Patrick Weber failed.
on the grounds that he has not been able to assist me with the legal matters at hand, I have been
trying to have him removed so that legal
assistance can be provided that will legally represent me… not assist the HOA
….( as Patrick did when he tried to waive the statue for limitatieon.. and he
threatened to baker act me when I spoke up for my rights… and my wishes…. And
when I spoke up for his mishandling of my case)
I want a guardian and a legal representative that does not intimidate and threaten
neglect my needs or wants, and who can actually really represent me and
assist me which is what a guardian is supposed to do ….
last spoke, I told you I was trying to
contact Scott Renshaw to substitute for Patrick Weber’s guardianship until full
independence has been restored …..have you looked at the Florida statute 744
recently? As per who can be a Guardian
,Scott Renshaw is located in Texas and as per
the statutes unless we were married or related by blood he may not
fulfill the criteria Are there other parts of the statue I should look at or
other rules and regulations that
could apply so that he could be my
guardian and I can remove Patrick? Can
you direct me to those rules and regulations?
Also I was
told over the phone my mother wrote an e-mail (which I did not receive a copy
of) concerning her moving into my condo to assist with payments for the
homeowners Association past-due fees .
When I spoke with my mom at my home,
we discussed the option of her moving in here moving everything of value
out of her home and that she was
planning on renting out the top area of
her home ( she has a three-bedroom two-bath home upstairs and three apartment
units underneath )and thereby saving
her home from any foreclosure
proceedings and also saving my home from anything detrimental to home ownership
as well. I am a bit worried…. I have
been received all types of different
messages from people on the phone telling me all sorts of variations of
what I was originally told….
Since I have been the victim of identity theft and so many con artists have lied cheated and stolen from
me I want to make sure these same
criminals who ruined my life are not
harming my mother as well…. There are
laws that could ensure her homeownership is intact and that she can retain the additional income from her rental property…. Please could you check on the true facts…
its hard since I don’t leave my home… to verify in person who is telling me the truth or not….. and who is once again
trying to swindle money from my family…. And a million dollar income producing
home is a large thing to lose because of a
con artist…. Especially since she had to
evict a girl who stole paintings from her….
also don’t know what was in the e-mail
she sent you and the homeowners Association can you fill me in? My
understanding is she was still holding onto the $5000 just in case that is
needed for my condo homeowners Association negotiations, but I still need to
have a competent legal attorney represent me in this legal case! It is not
acceptable that not only did Patrick weber
not obtain any legal counsel on
my behalf, that he does not know how to defend such a case himself….
But the verbal agreement caused
my anxiety to be so elevated that I started throwing up again at his
horrid handling of the entire case and
at my loss of power and control over any of it…. At his negligence at even conferring with me…
and his abusive behavior when I did express my
wishes and wants….. I just want to reiterate…… concerning the homeowners
Association deciding on the negation…
I’m under the impression I am allowed legal representation for my side …… It is
actually required by law… that I am represented…. By a competent legal
representative….. it is not completely up to the homeowners association with
they want…. To bully me….
especially since everything they
did by trying to foreclose on my when a guardian was supposed to be assisting
…. And going g behind my back and trying to sell my condo without even consulting my guardian.. was not
only underhanded …. It was illegal… and
was inappropriately and illegally pursued. Does anyone pay attention to the law
are the guardianship lawyer and I need
your legal assistant/advice in an e-mail ASAP acknowledging receipt of this
e-mail and this information. Thank you for
your kind attention to this
email, sincerely mary jean ziska

activity without first obtaining a court order authorizing the Guardian to do
so, activity is voidable by the court in the Guardian may be removed. The

any mortgage claims to enter into fair compromise powers without court approval
the Guardian also has the authority and flexibility to perform without prior
court approval routine acts and pay items that are normal and necessary to
protect manage and preserve the assets of the estate however exercising his or her duties, the Guardian should interpret the law
