Who guards the guardians: A series by Diane Dimond

Copyright © 2016 Albuquerque Journal

Editor’s note: Investigative journalist Diane Dimond, whose weekly syndicated column on crime and justice appears in the Journal, is preparing a book on the nation’s elder guardianship system. It’s a system designed to protect the elderly from the unscrupulous. But as Dimond discovered, it can be dominated by a core group of court-appointed, for-profit professionals who are accused of isolating family members and draining the elders’ estates. New Mexico is no exception.

This is a five-part Albuquerque Journal series that printed from Nov. 26- Dec. 1, 2016
