I'm writing to express concern and anguish over the duplicitous and unethical actions of one Mr. Dennis Levasseur as "friend" and pro bono counsel to my sister - Miss Connie and self appointed guardian and "trustee" of my elderly father, Harry.
Over the past 5 years Mr. Levasseur has surreptitiously charmed and ingratiated himself with my younger sister following the illness and ultimate loss of our mother in 2011. What started as what appeared to be a simple friendship evolved into a symbiotic bonding including romantic outings, vacations, trips, expensive flowers and fine
dinners. At the beginning of this rather unholy confluence - he (Mr. Levasseur) facilitated a durable power of attorney for our sister (the youngest) over my father's medical and financial affairs without consulting myself or my older brother, also an attorney and the original trustee, who lives in New Jersey.
In May of 2013 he (Mr. Levasseur) covertly directed and accompanied my sister and my father surreptitiously to the offices of someone who had been contracted to construct a family trust with my late mother and father in 2001. This trust was then "restated" to reflect a change of estate proceeds from 33%,33%,and 33% to each of the 3 children to 50% to Connie (in full amount) and 25% to the 2 older sons in the form of an annuity. In addition he had himself assigned as trustee with my sister over the estate. None of this was ever communicated to myself or my brother - we only came to discover the redrafted trust a few weeks ago. My father had become significantly diminished following a severely cracked skull during a fall in 2012 and has had very little cognitive processing capability or retention of memory since that time. He has no recollection of any subsequent events restating the trust when recently questioned independently by an impartial party.
