In her new book BROTOPIA, Emily Chang describes the culture in Silicon Valley's work and investment spaces, yet completely ignores Silicon Valley family courts, where a stronghold of Bro -Judges, lawyers and court appointed experts have created a criminal culture that has left children without mothers and unleashed legal rulings that show women are 10 times more likely to be financially ruined in Silicon Valley divorce courts than men.
Motherless America , is a recent book that touches on how welfare issues impact mothers in family courts across the nation.
However, for the men not part of Silicon Valley's "Bro Culture", they too are being financially destroyed by what appears to be a core group of family law attorneys who have hijacked Silicon Valley's divorce courts in schemes where children are legally kidnapped and community property is converted to pay penalties and fees to lawyers engaging in Unfair Business Practices and Antitrust activity.
Criminals operating in Silicon Valley divorce cases include controversial attorneys and custody evaluators who are getting sloppy. Some say this criminal enterprise is larger than the Social Security and Immigration fraud lawyers have imposed on the public in recent years.
2018 has seen a soaring number of State Bar Antitrust and Unfair Business Practice Complaints, and the newly reorganized State Bar appears unprepared to address.
Criminal divorce enterprises work in groups, with individuals such as Michael Kerner , John Orlando, Leslie Packer and Phil Stahl robotically issuing fraudulent reports in high conflict custody cases, that judges rubber stamp for certain lawyers.
Accountants James Butera, Michael Thompson, and Sally White appear to act for the enterprise in a manner that creates an innocent monopoly of court appointed accountants, each willing to assist a core groups of lawyers earning over $500,000 on the average Silicon Valley middle class divorce that can be dragged out for 6-10 years. All willing to evade taxes.
Enter QAnon Local. These are local groups of parents, court whistleblowers, and ethical county workers, who are organizing and collaborating to make change county by county where divorce and custody cases are concerned.
Groups are working on State Bar and Commission on Judicial Performance complaints, as well as escalating state and federal lawsuits. QAnon Local members deploy communications like high tech spies, as they share reports, use underground lawyers and obtain confidential information that exposes criminal activity including secret deals, offshore accounts and and payments to law enforcement officers and governmental officials.
QAnon Local is masterfully using social media, anonymous sources and getting the attention of mainstream media that has ignored divorce courts for decades.
Court staff and insiders have provided valuable information and secret sources to QAnon Local demonstrating that women in Silicon Valley are 10 times more likely to be subject to fees and penalties (sanctions) that exceed $100,000 or more in a modern divorce case than men. In some instances Judge Aaron Persky, Judge Vincent Chiarello , Judge Mark Pierce, Judge Drew Takaichi, Judge Patricia Lucas, Judge Mary Arand, Judge Stuart Scott and Judge James Towery have legal records showing they sanctioned hundreds women over $500,000 before their divorces are final.
These judges use reports issued by members of a criminal enterprise to legally justify their rulings. The judges appear to issue these rulings with the hopes of later earning private judging assignments from the criminal enterprise, as Judge Mary Ann Grilli is reportedly doing, after she awarded the criminal enterprise over $100,000,000 in just the past ten years.
Fees and penalties charged as attorney fee sanctions in divorce cases appear to NOT be reported to the IRS, creating a tax immunity for many lawyers willing to participate in criminal activity where divorce cases are concerned.
A detailed line up of the criminal enterprise includes lawyers and custody experts willing to cross county lines, and obtain orders from less than ethical judges. A sampling includes:
Custody evaluator, Michael Kerner, accidentally emailed Jane and John Q Public and exposed secret deals he offers to Hector Moreno's clients. Kerner is a key player in Silicon Valley's divorce mafia.
Custody evaluator John Orlando, known for selling rigged reports to lawyer Hector Moreno. Orlando's phone number ends in 50-50 , where Orlando has been secretly recorded in James Towery's courtroom engaging in ex parte communications with Judge Towery. Orlando is known for assuring a 50-50 custody recommendation to parents with documented domestic violence and alcoholism, if the price is right, or if the price is paid by attorneys James McManis, Heather Allan, Bradford Baugh, Elise Mitchell, Hector Moreno, Leah Amini, or Valerie Houghton.
Attorney Hector Moreno has sent threatening emails to Jane and John Q Public after his clients reached out to Q for help. He is currently facing RICO and Antitrust lawsuits and his son, Michael Moreno, a prosecutor for the Santa Clara County District Attorney, is being investigated for witness tampering in the criminal cases involving former 49ers , as Hector Moreno represented their victims in family court.
Attorney Bradford Baugh notoriously used in depositions of lawyers belonging to the criminal enterprise, and to protect court appointed experts, who are used as lookouts for the criminal gang operating in Santa Clara County divorce cases.
Attorney Heather Allan routinely court appointed to represent children, despite children reaching out to warn judges of her abusive conduct,
Attorney Rebekah Frye has cooked the books and overbilled clients, including tax payers, during her appointment as a minor's counsel, where she reportedly was paid off to conceal information of pedophilia and drug use that harmed the young clients she represented.
Attorney Stacey Stevens has been willing to threaten the press and court files show that Judges Fannin, Weil and Hayes have refused to report Stevens to the State Bar , as required by law.
Attorney James McManis has destroyed the financial health of women and the elderly in family law cases for decades. McManis recently started representing media and others seeking to sue law enforcement agencies, in order to gain information and reduce settlement payouts by the county. McManis is known for litigation tactics and suppression of evidence where Santa Clara County Sheriff's Department is concerned. McManis is rumored to be protecting criminal activity of Sheriff Laurie Smith, who was recently reported by Tracy Kaplan in the San Jose Mercury for interfering with Internal Affairs investigations dating back 25 years.
CPA James Butera reportedly returned part of a retainer for Moreno's clients when they threatened to sue him for malpractice and where Butera was copied on emails to Jane and John Q Public .
Custody Evaluator Ellen Mauldin, used in high conflict custody battles, reportedly rolled over on her own child, and was arrested and charged with shoplifting from Costco in San Jose's Almaden Valley, where many children whose lives she has destroyed, still live.
Custody Consultant Valerie Houghton, still used today in many Silicon Valley custody cases with attorney Heather Allan, Bradford Baugh, Leah Amini and Liz Goodley, has been indicted by Santa Clara County's District Attorney's Office for a number of white collar crimes including; stealing money from the clients of lawyers she regularly accepts assignments from.
Custody Expert Phil Stahl has reportedly concealed domestic violence and child abuse, for high paying clients.
Custody Expert Leslie Packer was found to be rigging reports after a former staff member sent damaging information to a group of disgruntled parents.
In Contra Costa Judges Weil, Haynes, Fannin and Austin appear to be trying to copycat Santa Clara County's Brotopia rings.
Parents who wish to have the support of others, while remaining anonymous as the enterprise is uncovered and charged, are encouraged to reach out to Q's email where they will be redirected to Signal and Protonmail to prevent exposure and retaliation.
Women in Silicon Valley have also obtained an 800 hotline , the number will be announced soon, and anyone who feels they are victims of the Brotopia Culture in Silicon Valley are invited to call and connect with others.
