“One doesn’t have to operate with great malice to do great harm. The absence of empathy and understanding are sufficient. In fact, a man convinced of his virtue even in the midst of his vice is the worst kind of man.”

— Charles M. Blow, NY Times

Judge Betty Lou Lamoreaux Backstory

Bettys’ Hope, inspired by the tragic events surrounding the Conservatorship of the Late Honorable Betty Lou Lamoreaux and the Conservatorship of dear Betty Roberts of Lancaster, who has not seen her beloved daughters for over 2 years.  The Judge Betty Lou Lamoreaux debacle that was featured in the Orange County Register is an excellent case on point. Her court appointed attorney self-guided himself into over $100,000 in legal fees paid out of her estate. There was literally NO statutory nor ethical basis for actions he took of his own volition.
