    NASGA and victims across the country are watching the indictment of April Parks with great hope and anticipation that justice will finally be served to those who have abused, neglected and/or financially exploited their wards for years and have gotten away with it because no one was watching and families’ complaints fell on deaf ears.

    It’s not just happening in Nevada. It’s a national problem and it’s growing! Join the national movement to reform unlawful and abusive guardianships and conservatorships. Join NASGA!
