SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Examining Institutional Abuse" with special co-host Dr Jill Jones-Soderman, a NAASCA family member and Exec. Dir. of the Foundation for Child Victims of Family Courts. ~~ TONIGHT'S TOPIC: "Disrupting The Corruption” - RICO Reigns In Howard County, Maryland ~~ Jill has been writing about Howard County, Maryland, for years, under the heading of RICO REIGNS in Howard County, Maryland .. since 2014. Her guest, a client, will appear anonymously. Maryland is a small state and county by county one can identify the different character of courts and the practitioners who are frequent flyers. Howard County is a wealthy bedroom community. The divorce / custody industry tends to be populated by a handful of well known practitioners who have developed a reputation for handling partners who have secrets to hide, a vendetta, or are just out for the best financial deal available. There is no law, there are no ethics and no expertise. Custody transfer is based on the inside deal, the connection to the connected lawyer who has divided up winners and losers before the clients feet have touched the entrance to the court. The FCVFC knows the players, the play and how to disrupt the corruption. ~~ NAASCA knows "institutional abuse" is rampant, worldwide, and dramatically effects childhood experience of our youth, frequently causing trauma that lasts a lifetime. Many issues of child abuse involve dealing with the courts and law enforcement, foster care, child protection services, CASA and CAC organizations, etc. Jill's experience with her Foundation for Child Victims of Family Courts and her US Whistleblower effort uniquely position her to speak to these issues.
