What others have said about Hon. Jeffrey S. Bostwick



Comment #: CA14458
Between Diane Peters and her partner in crime Judge Bostwick our Family's Trust is being depleted to their benefit. Peter's, her CPA and her attorney and her assistant continue billing us from Feb. 8, 2017 to present, August 28, 2018. Isn't it the Trustee's responsibility to safeguard the beneficiaries? Not ROB them? What a total scam! All properties have been sold months ago!


Comment #: CA11096
Worst then a 1 - zero! We walked into court 2/8/17 & it was obvious the decision was already made before we got a chance to plead our case in any way. It was turned over to a Private Fiduciary because Judge Bostwick wanted it off his desk. He has no respect for what's written in the Trust - he most likely didn't read it. We were supended as Co-Trustees on the spot. Now we are racking up bills from the Fiduciary - Diane Peters, her attorneys, her accountants, her assistances and she say she doesn't need to show us a bill? She has done nothing so far and hasn't kept us informed. We have no idea what to do at this point.


Comment #: CA10853
Judge Bostwick rushed to judgment and did not consider the wording of the Trust. Why do we have legal documents if they are ignored? It is very sad that someone works their entire life, writes a trust to leave their property to whom they desire only to have their wished ignored by Judge Bostwick.


Comment #: CA10852
We believe this judge has demonstrated a dereliction of duties and has created huge, monumental expenses to be paid by the Trust. He verbalized that he did not want to tie up the courts time and rushed his judgment with no regard towards the meaning or wording of the Trust or how his judgment will effect the beneficiaries.

The North County FBI has been taking reports about how the probate court, private fiduciaries and their attorneys have been acting in collusion to milk the money from estates. The beneficiaries, conservatees, or minors never even see what inheritance they were suppose to receive. If enough persons who have been affected follow through and make a report, the federal prosecutor may bring RICO charges against them. If this has happened to you, call 760-929-0811 or 858-320-1800. These are the phone numbers for the FBI. Tell them you would like to make a report regarding RICO violations by the probate court and/or private fiduciaries and their attorneys.
