Q: How can I find a CA attorney who sues Counties for failure to notify collaterals of conservator hearings?
I lost contact with my brother ten years ago and searched for him ever since. I am just now learning he suffered a stroke and lost his memory. The County placed him in a Board & Care and established conservatorship but failed to take reasonable steps to notify me. They denied my right to step forward and assume responsibility for my loved one.
After spending years imprisoned in the Board & Care, my brother recently passed after contracting an infection in hospital due to unsanitary practices. I never saw him again nor had the chance to tell him I love him.
