State Auditor Taps Family Court Whistleblowers
California's state auditor has published a third report from an audit of the state watchdog that oversees 250,000 licensed attorneys. The audit is the most extensive ever done and shows how the bar failed to protect the public from lawyers willing to lie, cheat and steal from their own clients.
One third of complaints to the state bar arise from family law clients. In 2010 a pattern of ignoring these complaints began to emerge as Jim Towery, a partner at Hoge Fenton in San Jose, jumped into the agency's top lawyer prosecuting position.
Towery used his year at the bar to forge relationships and scrape information that could be used to recruit lawyers from all over the state to organize an epic enterprise that operated from within the state's divorce and probate cases where children were weaponized and real estate was liquidated to fund the operation.
Lawyers who participated were assured more in fees ordered by family court judges, and protection that assured they would not be disbarred.
The audit began to look at conflicts, corruption and incompetence within the bar for the time period of 2010 - 2021. Auditors used tips from parents whose bar complaints were ignored to guide their investigation and report.
Conflicts auditors found include lawyers and public employees who spread throughout the state to insurance , housing, tech and entertainment. Towery set up ring leaders like street gangs inside the district attorney offices in Sacramento, Santa Clara , San Mateo , Los Angeles, San Deigo , Ventura and Orange County.
Tamara Costa Worked at Hoge Fenton with Jim Towery and Natasha Parrett where they set up the money laundering operation related to divorce and probate cases.
Cross reference of phone and cryptocurrency records expose lawyers from Sacramento to San Diego for being in on a scam that stole children from parents and foreclosed on family homes to fund corruption in the state's family and criminal courts .
Stefen Kennedy, former Public Defender, and John Conway ran the drug and sex trafficking operation in Northern California with the intent of moving money in a vastly unregulated area of cash transactions. The goal was to use kids with GALS or minor's counsel appointments to sell and distribute to the state's vulnerable youth trapped in the courts due to CPS, divorce or phony charges brought by corrupt district attorneys. Mayors from big towns and small cities are in on the scam that robs families and children
Jim Towery Collected Data on Lawyers for Use in a Facial Recognition Database for Facebook
Shortly before Jim Towery went to the bar, while employed with Hoge Fenton , he worked on the Facebook case, to make Facebook a California Corporation, which was stolen from the Winklevoss family and the state of Massachusetts.
Using attorney - client privilege and connections to Paul Grewal, Towery assisted in the collection of lawyers subject to complaints to collect their data and facial identification. The information was used to recruit lawyers to the enterprise up and down the state. for their commitment, lawyers involved in money laundering through their IOLTA accounts were promised immunity from state bar and criminal prosecution.
After working on civil and family law cases for Hoge Fenton, Jim Towery went to work for California's state bar in 2010, the year covered by the state auditor report based on parents whose complaints were tossed out by Jim Towery over a decade ago.
Towery is connected to corruption and protection that reaches from Sacramento to San Diego through Silicon Valley and Los Angeles where Towery protected Thomas Girardi and John Eastman.
Towery is said to be the head of the largest criminal organization in the state where government lawyers Leah Wilson, Suzanne Grandt and Vanessa Holton are now under investigation for protecting Towery in exchange for real estate and cryptocurrency payments amounting to millions of dollars. Towery is said to have recruited thousands of lawyers and judges to the enterprise.
Parents whose complaints were ignored by Jim Towery back in 2011 have uncovered papers in the Girardi Bankruptcy case that connect Towery and his wife Karyn Sinunu Towery to pedophile rings operating through the State bar , the family courts, corrupt CPS players, as well as Santa Clara and Chapman Universities.
It is estimated Towery collected hundreds of millions of dollars stealing from families and crime victims while assisting in the concealment of crimes committed by the state's most corrupt family law and government attorneys working at the bar and in the Santa Clara, Los Angeles , Sacramento and Orange County family and criminal courts. The rings operated on Facebook, Tinder and Match.com platforms and was modeled after the Backpage. scandal
