Dark Money: Keith Dolnick Caught on Facebook
Divorce attorney Keith Dolnick shot to instant fame with the ruling from Napa County in Hayward v. Superior Court. However, leaked documents and secret recordings show Dolnick's win may have more to do with his connections to Los Gatos' Jewish community than his legal skill.
Sure, Dolnick won a case that set private judging and referees on notice, but the ruling was a legal goldmine that brought Dolnick to Santa Clara County through court CEO David Yamasaki and court counsel Lisa Herrick, a former partner at McManis Faulkner.
Mc Manis Faulkner is the clean- up lawyer for Santa Clara County. James McManis often takes cases to give the appearance he is fighting against the Sheriff and agencies that won't give up public records, but McManis is actually a clean up lawyer. A lawyer who writes settlements to hide sexual predators, pedophiles and liars in family court cases.
Dolnick, who has been secretly recorded by countless women in Orange County, who did not get the same outcome that Ms. Hayward had to pay $3,000,000 to get.was reportedly brought into the family court mafia group by attorney James McManis Lisa Herrick and Robert Allard, where Dolnick was told he would see cases thrown his way if he agreed to play ball with the "in crowd" in Santa Clara County. Kael Briski and Steve Werth also were reportedly brought in through JAMS lawyers in San Francisco, who do not want private judging restricted.
McManis is reportedly the middleman who acts for District Attorney Jeff Rosen working overtime to try to block a recall movement of Judge Persky, who is also linked to the Los Gatos Jewish community through Shir Hadash, a congregation that reportedly offered $500,000 to cover up alleged sexual abuse of Rabbi Steve Kaplan as Rabbi Melanie Aron influenced elections as a kickback to Rosen and Judge Persky.
David Yamasaki, court CEO, is ground zero for public corruption in both Orange County and Santa Clara . Yamasaki reportedly brought Dolnick into what is being called the Jewish Family Court Mafia, connected to the building of the controversial Santa Clara County courthouse. Court clerks and members of anonymous reported two years ago that Yamasaki, with the help of Lisa Herrick, formerly of Mc Manis Faulkner, was reportedly stealing palm trees and other construction materials as kickbacks for family court judges and lawyers during the planning and construction of the new family courthouse in San Jose, which has become the stage for family court protests.
Ironically, Dolnick is on record for telling his clients NOT to use Facebook, while he uses Facebook to expand a network of lawyers who are drafting settlements and JAMS mediation agreements that cover up sexual harassment, abuse and pedophilia for the lawyers and judges part of the Jewish community based in Los Gatos.
Critics point to Dolnick's legal record and success as mirroring that of Elkins lawyer Garrett Dailey. Dailey was allowed to win an important case against a local rule used in Contra Costa County family courts, a win that was designed to appease pro per litigants growing restless over unfair family court proceedings.
Dailey did little for pro pers and instead built a career appealing cases for some of the most criminal family law attorneys in California, while gaining favor with the Judicial Council- the agency that manages the court finances in the state.
Dolnick's Clients Leak Secret Recordings: Reveal Dark Money Divorces
Dolnick's clients who lost custody of their children and their fair share of community property in a divorce case before private judges like attorney David Weinberg, Michael Reedy, Richard Roggia and Nat Hales have been secretly recording Dolnick to prove he selectively acted as ineffective counsel while working to protect elite rings of pedophiles and abusers, many hiding in the Jewish legal community.
Leaked documents and an independent audit shows governmental lawyers like Ann Ravel assisted in case rigging and operation of an underground economy of "dark money" that was fueled by the conversion of community property in high conflict divorce cases throughout California. Dark money operations are fueled with money converted from families engaged in divorce and laundered through organizations like UC Berkeley and the Law Foundation of Silicon Valley, for the benefit of lawyers drafting secret settlements and working to discredit those who may expose criminal activity that protects pedophiles and abusers lurking in Silicon Valley communities.
Dolnick's link to Ann Ravel through the Los Gatos community is especially alarming considering Ravel's power and influence over California's Judiciary and as a law professor at UC Berkeley.
