Whoops ! Divorce lawyers couldn't use their legal might to keep Judge Persky on the bench. Now it seems they can't even score a decent ranking on Amazon's Alexa Website Rankings.
Since investigative reporters crashed the Santa Clara County Bar Association meetings, lawyers in Silicon Valley have had somewhat of a PR problem. They also appear to have ranking problems on the internet.
Divorce lawyers who have dominated the courts, separated families for profit and worked to destroy women as a matter of routine, aren't doing so well in the court of public opinion.
Lawyers mentioned on this site now have a social media footprint that will report their misdeeds for generations. Their grandchildren will not need family mapping apps to tell them what crooks they were. Judges will not be revered, they will be recalled, indicted and stripped of their pensions.
Government lawyers who engaged in misdeeds will be stricken from future jobs as employers and clients will find them too controversial to hire.
Businesses that profited by assisting these lawyers will pay a price too, Tim Harper, the vocational examiner who ruined families for lawyers like Catherine Bechtel and Bradford Baugh is rumored to be shuttering his business, his own son disgraced by his father's conduct.
Custody evaluators including Leslie Packer, John Orlando, Phil Stahl and Michael Kerner, will rue the day they helped lawyers separate families for profit,
Judges who were complicit indifferent and who elevated their careers will be shamed for generations to come. Recalls and impeachments will drain the legal swamp. Judge James Towery, Judge Stuart Scott, Judge Jill Fannin, Judge Patricia Lucas, Judge Julie Emede, Judge Mary Arand, Judge Hyashi, Judge Drew Takaichi, Judge Lori Pegg, Judge Carrianger, you are an endangered species, your management of the law is Fake Justice and you will be removed from the bench, and your pension.
Court Clerks Carla Jackson, Susan Walker, Jaretta Reser, and Julie Lara, you have violated the law to protect crooked judges, you will be prosecuted and removed from the public payroll,
Richard Roggia, James Cox, Nat Hales, and Michael Reedy, you have cheated more people in private judging divorce cases than any others and you deserve to be prosecuted for your crimes.
Michele Hales, your parents are liars and cheats and you have cheated clients and lied to your own family in Hollister.
Elise Mitchell and Heather Allan, you tried to reverse protest and record, sorry, day late and a dollar short. Q got there first.
Rebekah Frye, you killed Gloria for fees and greed, while you had sex with a client, cheated on your husband and lied to your own kid.
Valerie Houghton, you ruined more families than any other lawyer or MFT in Silicon Valley, then you stole money from an elderly man to pay for a rich lifestyle for you and your children could not afford. No, you won't just lose your house as you told your friends. And the lawyers who called you out are not your stalkers, the law and Q will expose you for the criminal you are.
Walter Hammon, stole kids while promoting his kids in the legal community and letting his brother steal client's money held in his trust account.
Hector Moreno, used religion and people in their most desperate hour to engage in corruption with the DA's office and steal food money from kids. There will be no forgiveness, you are a hypocrite and a crook, may you rot in hell. God sees you, and so does Q.
Donelle Morgan, fueled her private jet with money she took in violation of the law.
Jeff Rosen, you used your own children and wife, to build your political career, while you cheated on campaign finance, put innocent people in jail, hid evidence to get plea deals from innocent parents and children, while you looked the other way on public corruption. Rosen used the local courts playing, the Jewish "victim card" and the jig is up.
Rosen stole the election from Carr, when he was the most corrupt of all. Rosen covered up and protected Rabbis who raped and took hush money from Shir Hadash to win his DA office. Rosen paid back emoluments by way of promotion to Allison Filo, Stacey Capps, Jim Demetriz and Carlos Vega, when they should have been fired. Rosen used his political clout to hitch his wagon to the victims of the Holocaust, as many believe he acted like a Silicon Valley version of Hitler.
Brad Baugh covered up for men who sexually abused kids and used his bar card and corrupt connections with Alan Nudelman and the DA's office to put people in jail and rob them of their homes. Baugh will rot in hell, jail and on the internet for eternity.
Thanks to all who helped Q rank higher in the court of public opinion, and on the internet. Just goes to show dirty lawyers can't control everything,
Santa Clara County tax payers paid for a prosecutor's tummy tuck, a judge's penis extension, a number of STD treatments , and prescription pain medications for judges and lawyers who are addicted to drugs, alcohol and sex.
Public speaking coaches often tell people to picture an audience naked, to put a speaker at ease. So why not picture your judge naked to ease the stress of appearing in court?
This is why that thought might not be a good one:
Leaked medical files, computer data and review of divorce case files might make that image difficult to swallow. In Santa Clara County judges have medical records that show a history of crabs, tummy tucks and penis extensions. Images sent electronically to the judges of their wives, girlfriends and prostitutes are pornographic and shocking. These images have been sent to the email accounts of public employees.
One judge, a suspected pedophile, had a penis extension. Another had her vagina tightened. (Newsflash: she recently retired) .
Tax payers are beginning to question what is being done with public funds.
The Santa Clara County district attorney's office staff has the highest number of STD treatments when compared to other counties, out numbered locally only by the San Jose police department. In some cases, the medical double dip comes from health coverage paid for a judge, and a government lawyer, working in the same county.
The total cost for the tummy tuck photographed above, was for a now retired prosecutor, whose pain medication addiction also cost tax payers a pretty penny. A well known family law judge also had tax payers foot the bill for her prescription drug addition, and now in fully paid retirement , the judge is continuing to work "for free" to troll for business while acting as a settlement conference officer.
As to confidentiality assured in privacy laws, oh well, these records are about as secure as the records in the county's DV and fee waiver requests, all of which sit in open baskets in the shiny new courthouse for anyone to view the most confidential of information.
For information on how your privacy is being violated in the local courts, contact Ben Rada, the court's Public Information Officer. He can be reached at : firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lisa Herrick, Ben's boss, and regular Q reader, is the court's general counsel who is charged with assuring the court does its job to protect the law and court user's privacy rights. She can answer additional legal questions related to privacy violations in the local courts. She can be reached at : Lherrick@scscourt.org, or catch her hanging out with her new hubby at Salesforce.com.
Lisa is also the go to for blocking your records requests. Want to find out how much Heather Allan, or Rebekah Frye are stealing from the public in their court appointments as lawyers for children? Ben Rada will tell you " no such records exist" and Herrick will instruct the staff to not give you what shows the fraud, as she works as a cover up lawyer for the private lawyers dominating the local courthouse.
Maybe picturing your judge naked won't help being nervous in court, but it may help you realize these judges are not perfect robots who perfectly apply the law in every case. More often these judges were deadbeat lawyers who got appointed to the bench and are merely marking their time as tax payers pick up the bill for their medical costs. Soon they will ride into the sunset with their judicial pension and lifetime medical insurance.
`100% of people surveyed admit they have no idea how to tell if their divorce lawyer's bills are accurate.
Divorce lawyers are notorious for stealing money. In Silicon Valley, the most nefarious lawyers take millions from a single divorce case. Few people understand that their attorney's bills often contain evidence of crimes committed by lawyers, judges, court appointed "experts," and court reporters working in divorce cases.
Q goes undercover with one of the most crooked divorce lawyers, Bradford Baugh, to demonstrate just how divorce lawyers act as criminal enterprises to steal your money.
Fraudulent Billing Practices
Q has obtained former bills, fee agreements and correspondence Baugh had with other lawyers, judges, cops, court reporters and experts. Baugh's worst abuses come when clients agree to use experts, private judges, or "stipulate" to commissioners, and cases fall out of the public eye. Of particular importance is how Baugh has secreted his bills and fees for over 40 years, while courts have awarded him fees without reviewing any of his bills or fees he charged to get those fee awards.
Here is how we get to criminal conduct:
#1 Retaining the Client - Before the First Meeting
Formal representation of a client in a divorce case is very important. Prior to your arrival a law office will likely run a credit and background check on you through their Lexis Nexis program to see what assets you have.
If you own a home, with equity, you are ripe for representation. In Baugh's cases he adds looking for businesses started during a marriage, where money can easily be hidden in a long drawn out divorce case.
Home equity used to be the most important consideration for a lawyer in a divorce case, because a lien can be placed on a home for unpaid attorney fees. Today, lawyers like Baugh go for businesses owned by husbands and wives where attorney fees can be taken through misappropriation of business expenses and tax fraud.
Lawyers can file a law suit for unpaid fees, and the people who decide these cases are either lawyer "mediators", appointed through the local bar association, or local judges who likely cheated on their bills when they were lawyers.
#2 First Meeting
Court records and interviews with Baugh's former clients indicate that Baugh, with the knowledge of his business partners, Liz Goodley, Valerie Tarvin, Leah Amini and Bill Dok, set forth a plan to convert community property into legal fees and engage in unjust enrichment to ruin lives. Often Baugh will delay clients signing formal fee agreements that legally retain Baugh, setting up an unsuspecting spouse to lose in a divorce case.
Baugh instructs clients to hide assets prior to formally filing for divorce, by changing title and moving money off shore, according to court records and interviews.
Before Baugh is formally retained he uses other lawyers to draft documents, keeping Baugh's crimes off the court's radar. Baugh also presents written information to new clients , giving an illusion his conduct is prudent and legal. These documents include information such as :
Finally, Baugh instructs clients to meet with, and pay, other lawyers he wants formally conflicted out of a case.
A review of Baugh's fee agreements show that retainers for Baugh, and opposing lawyers vary greatly, and indicate secret deals that are prohibited by law. Donelle Morgan claims she collects an extra $50,000 in retainer in cases involving Baugh, which she insists will not be released until the case is over. Baugh's retainers appear to vary based on the judge he appears before, where some judges routinely award Baugh more in fees than others.
Bad Bills that Cheat You
Delayed Billings: Initially some lawyers delay their fees and costs. This can give an appearance that you are saving money. More often bills will be delayed to initially suppress fees that have to be reported on an income and expense declaration.
Concealed Fees: Some lawyers will insist that bills are subject to attorney client privilege, they are not. In fact, lawyers are supposed to present bills to the court in divorce cases when asking for fees and sanctions. A review of 50 cases where Baugh was awarded millions in attorney fees awards show that Baugh never produced his bills. a current appeal pending in the Sixth District court of appeal shows that Judge Mary Ann Grilli awarded Baugh $100,000 in fees, where Baugh never presented his bills to confirm the fees were legally incurred when the award was made.
Judges are dumb, lazy and underpaid, most could never properly review legal bills, and most never do before they award Baugh millions in fee awards.
Fees that are concealed are often monies paid in cash, monies paid to court reporters and fees incurred when lawyers are engaged in illegal conduct, such as ex parte communications with judges and experts. Not charging for this work keeps it off the bills and out of discovery.
Secret Deals: Charges for transcripts are dictated as a matter of law, but also up to the discretion of a court reporter. Baugh, and lawyers like him make secret deals for favorable pricing on transcripts, have clients pay for those transcripts separately ,then selectively attach the transcripts to court filings to avoid the charges. Records also show Baugh shares transcripts with some lawyers while drafting orders after hearings, but refuses to share transcripts with other lawyers, or pro pers, which drives up income for court reporters who work for the judges and whom Baugh regularly appears before. This is prohibited by Antitrust laws.
Padding Bills : An audit of Baugh's bills shows 80% of his fees are generated not from work that must be done in a divorce, but work Baugh generates to block settlement of cases. Most family law lawyers encourage divorcing couples to talk and reach agreements, Baugh on the other hand tells clients not to settle, or talk to the other side, even about custody and care issues related to their children. Baugh then represents to the judge the parties are feuding, and experts are needed.
Lawyers create more than 50% of their revenue communicating with experts. Baugh uses the same experts over and over in cases, and has even sent agreements from other clients to use in a current case, charging the current client for work to produce the copied document.
Burying opposing counsel in letters, also creates a financial boom for divorce lawyers, and Baguh makes the majority of his income from this conduct, failing to note on his bills who the letters are to and what purpose the letter is intended to serve.
Baugh was disqualified by Judge Persky in a divorce case where Baugh represented internet dial-up pioneer Drew Perkins. Baugh assisted Stanford University Professor David Cheriton engage in fraud to avoid child support and Baugh got caught stealing appeals lawyer Garrett Dailey for the benefit of Evan Brooks. Baugh has routinely used criminally indicted attorney Valerie Houghton in cases, so Baugh's bills evolved to conceal many of these conflicts that could be found in discovery.
In reviewing Baugh;s bills, it appears he billed for work he could not have done as he was billing in another case, or at an educational or social meeting that precluded work on the day for which he billed.
Looking at Baugh's bills in isolation may not expose RICO and Antitrust activity,but when compared with other clients, and cases,. Baugh's fraud is clear, as is the fraud perpetrated by those who assisted , or were complicit in speaking up to expose Baugh's crimes.
(Yes, Jeff Rosen, we mean you). District Attorney Jeff Rosen has had multiple complaints against divorce lawyers, which Rosen ignored and where his office repeatedly prosecuted innocent citizens set up by crooked lawyers like Brad Baugh and their clients.
10 former clients of Baugh, all women, report that during his representation, Baugh was verbally abusive, told them to lie in court, became violent and used his wife and staff to harass them for payments they could not afford to make. It is becoming clear that Bradford Baugh has been one of the most violent and abusive lawyers in Silicon Valley, as he collected money while engaging in criminal conduct.
Forbes magazine recently discussed the top six dirty tricks men play in divorce cases, but a recent audit and secret recordings taken over an 8- year period shows Silicon Valley's most successful divorce lawyers help clients use even dirtier tricks, and not just the men.
For 20 years these lawyers have been sharing court experts, bribing cops to make false police reports and altering transcripts or court documents to discredit an opposing party, and other lawyers who are not willing to play dirty tricks. And the judges, many of whom were lawyers with these folks, let them.
Kathryn Schlepphorst, formerly of Hoge Fenton, is just one of many dirty lawyers profiting off emotional damage they cause in divorce cases to make more money. Schlepphorst, like several of her colleagues including Sharon Roper , and former judge Mary Ann Grilli, have planted themselves as Settlement Conference Officers in the local courts, covering up attorney misconduct and pressuring divorcing couples in a manner that has become criminal.
Parents , with no prior criminal history, are finding themselves jailed and with records of violence, merely because of the false claims of a former spouse, often assisted by a dirty lawyer.
Forbes' list includes dirty tricks like hiding assets, delaying proceedings, and conflicting out the best lawyers. In Silicon Valley, it is worse. Divorce lawyers steal staff, make secret fee and pricing agreements, pay cash kickbacks to court staff concealed as "drafted" orders, and encourage prospective clients to make false DV claims first, in order to reap the rewards such claims can have in divorce court.
Sadly, in a divorce case one party has the ability to request a Domestic Violence Restraining Order, and the other spouse is presumed guilty. It has become a race , where the first to claim abuse , wins. No jury. No due process, like you see on Netflix.
Lawyers including Schlepphorst are using the vast wealth in Silicon Valley fuel their crimes. Judges, many of whom are controlling and abusive in their own personal relationships, will routinely order fees to a lawyer bringing a DV claim, even when that claim is false.
Silicon Valley Court files show what lawyers have generated in fees over the past 10 years by bringing non- violent , or false DV claims, or by successfully burying real claims of domestic violence;
McManis- Bechtel- Morgan- Reedy- $500 million dollars
Hoover- Krepelka- $250 million dollars
Nat and Michele Hales- $100 million dollars
Bradford Baugh- $200 million dollars
Lynne Yates Carter- $50 million dollars
Marilyn Moreno - $20 million dollars
Hector Moreno - $20 million dollars
Rebekah Frye- $15 million dollars
BJ Fadem- $5 million dollars
Civil cases in Silicon Valley show these lawyers often sue to collect fees after a divorce, even when clients are in bankruptcy.
These lawyers not only use the tactic of conflicting one another out, when they are on opposite sides they often collude to reduce fees to one, effectively "throwing " a case to make less money, only to make it up on the next.
These lawyers use an army of spies to hack computers, wire tap cell phones and plant child porn or incriminating information that will shore up a DV conviction and get a client out of paying support.
Income and Expense declarations in these cases show it is more often that the abused spouse ends up penniless and without a lawyer because of the dirty tricks of a few.
Donelle Morgan has been recorded telling clients to sue Bradford Baugh, yet when it comes time to complaining to the State Bar about attorney misconduct, lawyers like Morgan remain silent. Morgan has been heard telling her staff, " why would I want to report Baugh to the Bar, I have made a small fortune in cases against him." Morgan, who takes as much as $50,000 as a retainer in cases where she will oppose lawyers like Baugh, has spent 15 years preying on the most innocent spouses involved in divorce cases, while commuting by private jet to her home on California's Central Coast.
An investigation into Morgan's , and other lawyer's cases, show these lawyers typically force families into private judging , where the money flows like sunrays and kickbacks to fellow lawyers go unnoticed, or laundered, through trust accounts that are not overseen by any state or federal agency.
Silicon Valley divorce lawyers who have hijacked children, separated families, stolen homes and raided retirements of thousands, will now join the Q Wall of Shame. Lawyers can decide if they will continue to remain silent, or call out those who disgrace the legal profession while working in Silicon Valley's family courts.
Cops, court workers , government lawyers, private divorce attorneys and retired judges have been stealing public and private money for decades. Victims often are run out of Siliocn Valley in shame. or bankrupted, while the worst lawyers and firms continue to profit like the glory days of Wall Street.
Family Court Judges who separate families have been caught cheating on their payroll affidavits and government lawyers have buried and suppressed evidence to cover judge crimes against Silicon Valley families.

The tour will begin at the family courthouse, where court dockets and files will serve as the guidebook history. Visitors will be treated to a special You Tube Video premiering on the tour that will feature suppressed evidence, illegal recordings and surveillance video that catches the criminals in the act.
Winding through San Jose's Rose Garden and posh Los Gatos neighborhoods, then passing the overpass where a young Oracle worker jumped to her death when she was unable to pay her legal bills and was subjected to paying to visit her own children, the tour will also pass the Silicon Valley companies like Facebook, Google, Apple, Paypal, Oracle, Envida, Intel, Ebay, Netflix and Yahoo, who funded the crimes and contributed to the harm to families.
Santa Clara and Stanford Universities are also on the tour, taking in the infamous dumpsters and law libraries , the scene of many crimes, and where the mob began to form over 30 years ago.

Step inside a divorce court south of the San Francisco Bay these days and one would think tech and social media pioneers are the most violent folks in the world.
Court dockets show that where police used to employ a 'cool down' period, the involvement of family court judges, and over $1 billion dollars in state and federal funding is all the incentive a few unscrupulous lawyers, and less then ethical judges, need to place someone under a DVRO.
Once you are under a DVRO you lose your right to own guns, your right to work with children, and your right to work with or adopt pets.
A finding of domestic violence in a divorce case ( FC 3944), can be the kiss of death where property and support issues are concerned, making violence the perfect incentive to attract shark lawyers.
An audit of case files show DVROs issued for any length of time, one year to a permanent one, Judges conduct in issuing these orders is also being called into question.
Santa Clara County Judge Clark issued a 50 year restraining order against one father, preventing him from being in his children's lives completely.
Judge Stuart Scott gave the most DVs , including DV to a mom who tried to visit her daughter at school, and a dad who tried to go to his daughter's birthday party.
Judge Takaichi gave a father convicted of felony DV , and child abuse, full legal and physical custody , ignoring the dad's felony convictions , merely based on the questionable recommendation of Ms. Fleming in Family Court Services.
Judge Towery is known as the DV reverse engineer, noting he has awarded restraining orders to lawyers giving kickbacks to Towery's former firm, Hoge Fenton.
Lawyers including Lynne Yates Carter, Heather Allan, Bradford Baugh, Richard Roggia, Michael Reedy, Donelle Morgan, Nat Hales, and James Mc Manis have been using the courts to draft out divorce cases, simply to hide domestic violence and protect abusers.
In Contra Costa, Steven Moawad , turned Chief Trial Counsel of the State Bar, reportedly failed to protect victims of domestic violence, especially in cases involving other races, where Moawad was overheard telling racist and sexist jokes while working in the DA's office.
In Santa Clara county, the DAs are so entrenched with their own affairs, that they fail victims over and over. Now the former spouses, girlfriends and boyfriends of prosecutors are speaking up and revealing how many of the employees in the county are using the courts to advance false DV claims, with the help of Jeff Rosen and his deputy DAs.
Kasey Halcon, of Victims Services, is aware the DA's office is failing victims, but claims her hands are tied. Halcon is part of an office , where supervisors have engaged in improper relationships with staffers, that has caused the break up of marriages and real violence to be just covered up.
In a recent DV meeting a young woman stood up and told how her daughter was taken from her by Judge Takaichi, who ignored her husband's criminal DV history Following her comments, a member for Siliocn Valley's Law Foundation noted the foundation, funded with county , state and federal grants, noted the foundation had sent five lawyers to the boarder to help with the legal crisis impacting the separating of families of illegal citizens.
When Judge Clark asked if any children the lawyers from the foundation were going to help were county residents, there was silence, and all eyes turned to the mom who had not seen her daughter since January, after Judge Takaichi sent to the young girl to live with an abusive father, ignoring the signs of domestic violence, which has become a regular pattern and practice in Siliocn Valley's family and criminal courts.
Read here for how the DA in Santa Clara County chooses to prosecute , or not , where domestic violence is concerned.
See DDA Cindy Hendrickson's internal memo on former 49er Ray McDonald.
There is an old Sherriff in town, and she is not afraid to take on Judges who arrest protestors or that fail to protect victims of domestic violence, according to public comments made at the state's meeting of court managers.
California's Judicial Council's July meeting was summer light, but 50% of the public speakers were from Santa Clara County, where members of the public called out Patricia Lucas for failing victims of domestic violence and for abusing her power by arresting parents protesting judges who continue to separate families.
Lucas hung her head and the chief justice didn't seem to be able to pay attention as victims and parents blasted the judges for what they have done to families.
In a county where Trump supporters were sent by San Jose police into an angry mob, for which the cops have no qualified immunity, and where the district attorney, Jeff Rosen, openly cheated tax payers, the impotent judges who have routinely separated families is no surprise.
The meeting began with a caller from Santa Clara, who is a victim of domestic violence, and had her daughter taken from her by judge Drew Takaichi, who ignored a fathers criminal record for domestic violence and child abuse.
A father then noted that judges routinely fail to follow the law, and criminalize parents with no criminal history in divorce court.
Worse was the speaker who called out Judge Lucas, a strong Persky supporter, who has had a troubling history of backlisting media she disfavors, and arresting protesters who are critical of the courts.

Lilia Luciano of ABC 10 in Sacramento is the first mainstream media reporter to dive into problems in California's divorce and custody matters, exposing the problems in family court and with CPS workers and court appointed experts.
Perhaps the greatest loss of trust in our legal system is bubbling in family court issues, where courtrooms have become modern day popularity contests overseen by incompetent and overworked judges. False claims of abuse, the lack of judges following the law and abusive parents who conceal abuse with high paid divorce lawyers and experts are the problem.
In CPS cases people without money or education often find their children susceptible to federal funding that encourages CPS workers to get children into the system and placed in foster care.
Lilia has featured pioneers in the family court reform movement from Kathleen Russell of the Commission on Judicial Excellence, Joe Sweeney of Center for Modern Courts and Family Court Legal Custody expert Robin Yeamans of Campbell, California. Parents including Shane Down from social media #NOTYOURRIGHT to Kathey Lester, a retired federal court processor are also being covered by Lilia who is diving deep into social media to find the truth.
Michelle Chan, a writer and mom who lost her child to a corrupt CPS process, has worked with folks like social media guru Jenny Wells and Cathy Cohen to get these stories out to mainstream media.
(Lilia is reportedly a Jane and John Q Public regular reader, as are many underground lawyers sympathetic to the family court reform movement.)
At the heart of the issue is money and corruption. Family courts in California have been largely ignored by state lawmakers and judicial managers. The State Bar has been a runaway train, failing to discipline lawyers who use family law cases to create an underground economy that benefits themselves. In today's modern courts property is no longer simply divided as lawyers use domestic violence to loot from victims and where abusers can buy verdicts that allow them to continue to emotionally and financially abuse, or intimate, partners who try to escape, or expose, the abuse.
The modern judge appears more prone to rule to benefit lawyers they favor, or CPS and other Family Court Service workers who help judges keep a lid on dissent.
In Santa Clara County, Family court service workers have been pointing investigative reporters like Luciano to problems and corruption in the system.
In San Francisco CPS victims have joined with family court victims and organized large protests, created music and art, and used social media to investigate corruption that is harming families and children.
Transparency and public attention will be the key to undoing the damage done in secret courts and confidential reports that are designed to profit a select few yet that act to harm so many children. The story will be told in mainstream and social media with off shoots of creative music, art and film that seek to expose the problem in our modern family courts.
