The Citizen’s Elder Advocate Support Enterprise is a grassroots, nonprofit enterprise based in the Pacific Northwest US.
Our mission is to assist in the education and promotion of individual vulnerable-person advocates and likeminded grassroots advocacy organizations. An additional focus of CEASE is to provide educational resources to support the vulnerable person and their affected family members to effectively navigate the complex and often manipulated family court or probate system, as well as strengthen the integrity of the courts by networking with other advocate agencies to promote vulnerable person legislation and greater attorney & judicial accountability.
CEASE advocates are not attorneys and do not offer legal advice or counsel. CEASE advocates are victims, family members of victims or friends of persons whom have been physical, financially, emotionally abused, and directly damaged by professional negligence, malpractice and intentional financial exploitation.
Founded in March of 2017, as a means to assist victims, damaged by negligent or unethical attorneys (attorneys who do not follow the ABA Model rules, Rules of Civil procedure, etc.), guardians, conservators, bankers, primary care providers, accountants, investment managers, physicians, and health care provider’s ethical misconduct. CEASE provides educational resources, evidence sharing platforms and shared experiences to aid individuals and families acquire experienced-based knowledge to empower those whom need to assist elder abuse victims, family court litigants and vulnerable persons damaged by the collusion of corrupt white-collar professionals.
As a collective of common-focused advocates we also work with other nonprofits to expose the systemic failures in the adversarial litigant system that often fails to police itself and the courts via the standards set for by the American Bar Association Model Rules and Judicial Canon rules, while simultaneously providing a conduit for educating the media, state & federal lawmakers, and the public about repeating case violation patterns and the need for major system reform to stop the epidemic of vulnerable person exploitation, professional negligence and abuse.
