Lisa Belanger says that she was always “Daddy’s girl.” She is the youngest daughter of Marvin Siegel of Boxford, Massachusetts, and she and her father have always been very close.
It has now been more than a year and a half since she has seen her father, not by her choice or the choice of her father. A court, guardians, and lawyers have medically kidnapped her father, essentially imprisoning him in his own home, and they have forbidden his baby girl from having any contact with him.
Lisa Belanger is an attorney who followed in her father’s footsteps, and she is not taking this cruel twist of life lying down. She has been fighting to get him back since he was taken under state guardianship in mid December 2011.

Retaliation for Exposing the Truth
Now, in what she sees as retaliation for exposing the corruption in the guardianship system in and around the Boston area, an attorney, who has been fighting alongside the guardians against the family of Marvin Siegel, is attempting to have Lisa Belanger disbarred.
This attorney, Marsha Kazarosian, was hired by Mr. Siegel at one time, but just before he was medically kidnapped, he attempted to fire her. In a handwritten statement, he wrote:
I want to terminate your services for going against my wishes.

Kazarosian refused to be dismissed. Now, almost 7 years later, Lisa Belanger is still fighting the attorney for one of the most basic of human rights – the right to have a relationship with her father.
She says that the complaint against her essentially boils down to this:
They’re saying, “We’re going after you because you dare to expose us.”
Because she dared to exercise her 1st Amendment right of Freedom of Speech by speaking out against corruption, Lisa says that they are trying to silence her:
This goes in the dictionary under “T” – for “tyranny.”
When it comes down to it, they know I’ve done nothing wrong.
No matter what happens, her message cannot be stopped. She says it is too late to stop the truth because both the local paper The Boston Broadside and Health Impact News have already reported what has happened to her father and to several other senior citizens in the Boston area. Their stories are out on social media like Twitter and Facebook.
You can’t put the genie back in the bottle.
Lisa says that her dad always taught her to fight for what is right, and that is what she is doing.
I’m exposing medical kidnapping, a systemic problem of them doing this to elderly people, and to people of all ages.
What I’m doing now is what he taught me to be. This is who he is, and who I am. We fought for other people’s rights, before this ever even started with my family.
She was not able to celebrate his 90th birthday with him on June 8. Instead, on that day, she joined the Memorial Prayer Vigil for Baby Steffen Rivenburg in Nashville, Tennessee, for the baby whose life was taken from him a year ago that day at Vanderbilt Hospital.
Lisa spoke at an event with the Tennessee Judicial Accountability Movement and the Family Forward Project the next day, educating attendees about the Medical Kidnapping of senior citizens through probate courts and guardianships.
Let Freedom Ring
In a recent interview with Health Impact News, Lisa told us that:
My dad was a warrior. He fought hard for “we the people.”
He taught me to have a moral compass and to have compassion.
He taught me to not be silent when wrongs are being done to others.
I’m just doing what my dad taught me to do. It’s my obligation as a human being.
Like most Americans, Lisa Belanger had no idea that this kind of thing could happen in the United States. She was shocked at the level of corruption that she saw and that she continues to see.
Instead of making her crawl into a hole and hide, what she has learned has ignited a fire within her. Lisa is determined to fight for what is right, just like her father taught her:
Everything that I’ve done is for my dad.
This is so much more than about just the law: it’s good over evil.
It’s about standing up and doing the right thing. It’s being loyal to your family.
I’m not just fighting for my father, but I’m fighting for every other person that’s been subjected to this inhumanity.
It’s about my moral compass. It’s about giving hope to other people.
The Boston Broadside Continues to Expose Corruption
While many media outlets shy away from stories like this, the editor of The Boston Broadside, Lonnie Brennan, takes seriously the role of the press envisioned by the Founding Fathers. The cradle of the Boston Tea Party is home to a print newspaper that does not hesitate to hold government accountable to the people.
The most recent edition of the paper contains the latest chapter in Lisa Belanger’s fight for her father.
90-Year Old Marvin Siegel Remains Under 24/7 House Guard
as High-Profile Lawyers Drain Millions from His Estate
The Boston Broadside has previously detailed in a four-part series the systematic draining of the estate of 90-year-old Boxford resident Marvin Siegel by Governor Charlie Baker’s 2016 appointee, Attorney Marsha V. Kazarosian, and other lawyers.
During the past seven years, millions have been drained from the
retiree’s estimated $9 million estate. He’s expected to be tapped out
within a year. [Massachusetts is under Romneycare, a socialized medicine system that is the model for Obamacare. Robbing the elderly becomes a convenient means of keeping the failing system afloat without raising taxes. This is how the wealthy elderly will be forced to 'pay their share'. If allowed to stand the Mass health system will become the federal model for any single payer health system. - ED]
Where has the money gone? To lawyers, lawyers, lawyers, elder service providers, and the like. Heck, the lawyers even charge one another to talk to each other and to send e-mails to one another, and then bill the estate. They also spend money on the daily care of Marvin, including their posted 24/7/365 “guards,” as Marvin’s daughter Lisa Siegel Belanger refers to his round-the-clock paid “caregivers,” whom she has detailed keep the senior isolated in his Boxford home. Lisa has also detailed how these “so-called medical providers have denied her dad his basic dignity: he can’t even use a cell phone to talk to his grandchildren!”
Fighting Back, Getting Betrayed
Marvin hired Atty. Kazarosian as private legal counsel in August of 2011 for the specific purpose of fending off a state “elder protective service” agency (Elder Services of Merrimack Valley) from unlawfully making him a ward of the state (assigning a guardian to him). He never envisioned that Atty. Kazarosian would quickly switch sides and work against him, as has been charged by members of Marvin’s family.
In March of 2015, Marvin’s daughter, Attorney Lisa Siegel Belanger, filed an extensive federal civil action in which she claims that Atty. Kazarosian is part of a long-embedded insidious enterprise of corrupt lawyers and judges using the Massachusetts Probate & Family Court system to exploit elders—and any person of any age for that matter who happen to be vulnerably labeled as “incapacitated.” Lisa’s extensive, detailed complaint and accompanying exhibits can be viewed by the public free of charge at http://www.belangerlawoffice.com/free-marvin/federal-civil-action-2015/.
Soon after Lisa filed her racketeering action with the U.S. District Court, she provided a copy to Governor Baker. In her complaints to the governor, Lisa revealed a systemic pattern of elder abuse, money laundering, and embezzlement. Governor Baker refused to reply to Lisa and in less than a year from the first complaint, appointed Atty. Kazarosian to the commission that nominates Massachusetts’ highest court judges—known as the Supreme Judicial Court Nominating Commission. [See link here.]
On December 1, 2017, Lisa filed another formal complaint, this time directly to Governor Baker, Lt. Governor Karen Polito, counsel for the Governor, and the Executive Director of the Supreme Court Judicial Nominating Commission. In her complaint, Lisa extensively detailed what she termed the continuous, vicious exploitation of her elderly father and family by Atty. Kazarosian and her associates. As of press time, Governor Baker and the above-specified officials have not responded to Lisa’s complaint.
But it Gets Worse: Atty. Kazarosian Seeks to Disbar Lisa Belanger
Over the course of seven years, Lisa has fought to get her father released from what she terms the clutches of Atty. Kazarosian and associates. Lisa has filed numerous legal petitions, and has even received a court-ordered fine for speaking to her own father!
In response to her actions in defending her father, Lisa has informed The Boston Broadside that Atty. Kazarosian seeks to disbar her. Lisa claims this is to silence her from fighting for her father. She has detailed that now that Marvin’s plight has been publicized in The Boston Broadside, Atty. Kazarosian has “made it her personal mission and vendetta to maliciously and unlawfully thwart my continuous exposing of this long-embedded corruption in the Massachusetts Probate & Family Courts. At the behest of Marsha Kazarosian, on May 25, 2018, Adam LaFrance, Assistant Bar Counsel, filed formal charges against me,” Lisa shared.
As Lisa has summarized, “the Office of Bar Counsel documentation states that they are prosecuting me to silence my exposure of this corruption of epidemic proportions and for specifically having sought legal relief in the federal court. Conspicuously, LaFrance, fails to state how my substantiated allegations are in any manner false or dishonest as they charge. The Office of Bar Counsel seemingly forgets that truth is an absolute defense.” [Emphasis added by HIN]
Good for the Goose, But not the Gander?
In sharp contrast, the Office of Bar Counsel has blatantly and flagrantly ignored Lisa’s filing of complaints against Marsha Kazarosian and other specified counsel since 2012. Repeatedly, from 2012 through 2014, the Office of Bar Counsel wrote to Lisa stating that no investigation would be conducted due to matters being actively “pending” in the Essex Probate & Family Court.
Yet, even though matters are still actively taking place in the Essex Probate & Family Court, in May of 2017 the Office of Bar Counsel opened an investigation against Lisa as a result of a complaint filed by Marsha Kazarosian—the very first complaint initiated against Lisa from the time this matter commenced in 2011. One year later, the Office of Bar Counsel began formal procedures against Lisa (May 25, 2018).
Self-admittedly, Marsha Kazarosian has close and substantial inner-workings with those presiding in the Massachusetts judiciary—all the way up to the state’s highest court justices. In Kazarosian’s many self-published profiles, she boasts being appointed to the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court’s Advisory Committee for Clerks of the Courts and having served on the Superior Court Civil Working Group; that in 2014, she served on the SJC’s Access to Justice Commission Committee on the Bar Exam.
Of particular significance, Marsha Kazarosian openly flaunts her having acted as a Hearings Committee Officer for the Massachusetts Board of Bar Overseers for a 6-year term.
Kazarosian has also openly touted having been a part of the Board of Governors during Deval Patrick’s administration, along with documented big-dollar political contributions to high-profile Democrats including former Attorney General Martha Coakley, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Senator Ed Markey, Joe Kennedy III, Barak Obama, Joe Biden, John Kerry, Tom Daschle, and various Democratic organizations. [Boston Broadside Editor’s Note: So-called Republican Gov. Baker appointed a heavy-financial-donor to extremist Democrats? Then turned a blind eye on complaints against her?]
Lisa says, “It can be of no surprise by the outlandish backroom antics resorted to by Obama appointee U.S. District Court Judge Allison Burroughs and First Circuit Court of Appeals Justices Sandra Lynch (Bill Clinton appointee), when they dismissed the federal civil actions I filed in 2015 and 2017.” Lisa added, “Kazarosian is high-profile and a big donor. Oh, and Judge Burroughs just happens to be one of the foremost, early-on federal judges to have nixed President Trump’s initial travel ban.”
