    Dr Karen Huffer, Nationally recognized expert Americans with Disabilities Act

    in Family

    Hosted by Marti Oakley and Debbie Dahmer


    Our guest: Dr. Karin Huffer, Professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in Manhatten, New York and medical expert on Legal Abuse Syndrome, and Organizting Committee Member of at  The National Association for Probate Reform and Advocacy (NAPRA) 


    Courts cannot see invisible disabilities unless ADAAA is used.  Too often opposition cruelly and unlawfully accuses those with qualifying disabilities, i.e .PTSD, TBI, depression, of being “crazy” and lying as part of a ploy.  The court does not know UNLESS WE TELL THEM that for access and inclusion the PWD, person with a disability, must invoke rights to privacy, equal access, and safety under the ADAAA federal mandates.


    We will be discussing the application of the ADAA and its application to the abuses in the probate system, and how it applies to those under guardianship. 


    Dr. Huffers website : www.equalaccessadvocates.com


    Events that Damage Public Health


    o Faulty psychological/custody evals 


    o Called  “crazy” & discredited in court


    o Financial and emotional devastation


    o Disability exploited not accommodated in court. 


    o Lies replace fact – leaving you defenseless  


    Dr Huffer has also authored numerous books which we will be discussing also.
