Legal Abuse Syndrome:
A Preventable Public Health Problem
If you’ve ever felt abused by the legal system, or had a friend or family member suffer traumatic stress while going through litigation, then this book is for you. The eight-steps outlined in Legal Abuse Syndrome address the needs of litigants under extreme stress.
Here are some examples of abuse typically observed in litigation:
- The legal system is used as a weapon, i.e. one spouse manipulates the court to punish the other in divorce proceedings.
- The courts are used for foreclosures and other transfers of property or assets unlawfully.
- False accusations, and lying, to the extent of fraud on the tribunal, are common.
- The courts threaten, bully, intimidate, harass, and bring you to ruin, to cause a win by attrition.
These methods destroy your ability to defend and protect yourself, or prevent you from being able to afford representation and costs of litigation.
In this book, you will discover unique, insightful step-by-step ways to navigate the system so that you do not feel bullied, tricked, or defeated over and over again. In fact, properly used, the judicial system offers ways to help you with accommodations through federal mandates. If you have been injured by the experience, or are sick, suffering with invisible disabilities, you will learn how to cope more effectively even in these challenging adversarial situations.
