Personal, Property, and Financial Information Your Divorce Attorney Will Need

information your divorce attorney will need

 

A lot goes into choosing a divorce attorney. I always suggest three attorneys be interviewed before deciding which to hire. During the interview process, you can learn about the attorney’s experience, their fees and get a feel for whether or not you feel the two of you could have a good working relationship.

Once you’ve made your decision, the new attorney will need information from you in order to get the ball rolling and the divorce process started. Some information is basic, will require no work from you. Other information will require time and energy and it is always best to be prepared. So, before you even start the interview process, why not get ahead of the game by gathering as much information as possible so that when it comes time to answer questions your new divorce attorney has, you will be prepared.

Divorce Attorney Elise Mitchell's Private Files Show Payments for Sex Favors to Judges Arranged by BJ Fadem and Family Court Services Own Jason Magers

Picture

BJ Fadem is first openly Transgender lawyer regularly appointed to represent children in Silicon Valley courts. Papers reportedly left by Elise Mitchell at Norte Dame in San Jose show Fadem as part of a huge child and sex trafficking ring involving judges and custody experts.

Transgender: Abuses Mothers in Family Court 
For those who remember BJ Fadem as a woman, the notes and confidential papers left at Notre Dame high school in San Jose came as no surprise. Fadem,  who was never comfortable being a woman and reportedly hated his own mother  has unleashed years of torment on local children whose parents  are divorcing in Santa Clara family courts. Worse, confidential papers left at San Jose’s elite Catholic High School show Fadem was also involved in the criminal trafficking of children and laundering money through the local courts in the form of court orders and appointments. The notes show Fadem working to protect Stanford professors, and high tech executives who sexually molested children and arranged sex favors including blow jobs to some of Santa Clara County’s most prominent judges. Fadem is linked to Family Court Services MFT Jason Magers, also transgender, who is known for taking children from mothers as a form of grooming in the sex trafficking rings. 

Many believe the papers were left at the high school by controversial divorce attorney Elise Mitchell, who has recently experienced high staff turnover and is rumored to be frazzled purchasing a home with her husband using money laundered through the courts and payoffs from the 49ers. Payments reportedly arranged through attorney Eric Scott Geffon, now a Santa Clara County superior court judge. 

Selling the Homes of Families to Pay the Lawyers and Sex Traffickers

​James Towery, another lawyer turned bad judge, was known for  sexually harassing  the legal secretary in his own law firm. The problem for Towery was that the secretary kept notes, and his wife, Marilyn Morgan , a partner in the firm with her father, found the notes and took Towery to divorce court.

After he was appointed to the family court, Judge James Towery began using his elected office to sell the properties of families involved in local divorces in order to assure payments to court appointed lawyers, private judges and custody evaluators  who use rigged reports and junk science to separate children from their families and put them into the criminal justice or foster care systems where they are ripe for sex trafficking and abuse. 
 

Banks Funding Trafficking Through the Courts

 The papers show Judge James L. Stoelker has been using his contacts where he formerly represented big banks to assist the  money laundering scheme  using local real estate transactions and help from county assessor Larry Stone’s confidential secretary.  Stone’s office has coordinated the scheme through the district attorney’s office where prosecutors including Deborah Medved, Terry Harman and Allison Filo have helped the trafficking ring after  Medved became a family law attorney regularly appointed to represent children in cases with judges she knew from the DAs office, including Amber Rosen, the wife of District Attorney Jeff Rosen. Medved was known for protecting Stanford professors and Silicon Valley tech executives who were part of sex trafficking rings and where many abused their own children, with impunity. 

Notes show Medved,  was arranging cash payments with the help of DDA John Chase to DA Mark Peterson in Contra Costa County. Other judges involved in the scam include: 
Santa Clara County; Patricia Lucas, Mary Arand, Julie Emede, Vincent Chiarello, Mark Pierce, Joshua Weinstein and Roberta Hayashi, all  assisted by government lawyers Lisa Herrick and Los Gatos Councilwoman Barbara Spector, formerly of Hoge Fenton. Private lawyers known for watching porn and trying to trade representation for sex include Nat Hales, Neville Spadafore, and Catherine Gallagher who are regularly appointed as private judges to keep the scam out of the public eye. 

Judges have been repaid for their rulings with mysterious payoffs on their homes and rental properties using Los Gatos based Orange Title company and connections to Intero real estate agents to do so.  

Judges Putting Kids on Drugs for Profit

Judge Manley has been rigging outcomes in drug court, while “investing” in drug companies through relatives and friends.  Court ordered drug rehab and probation monitoring  programs listed in Mitchell’s notes show area lawyers and judges getting kickbacks from large drug companies and big players in local marijuana businesses. Mitchell was recently heard by a staffer bragging to clients she could get a former spouse criminally prosecuted due to her connections with John Chase and Michael Moreno in the DA’s office.

Unity Care, the corporation charged with caring for foster kids in the San Jose area, is highly linked to Judge James Towery,  Judge Amber Rosen, Kayrn Sininu Towery and  Supervisor Cindy Chavez, all who profited from the drugging and abusing of children caught in Santa Clara County’s juvenile system. 

Drugging of children based on recommendations and orders of court appointed lawyers appear to be key to the scam. Hundreds of CP cases and court files that are kept confidential by the courts, and state law, show the most egregious  offenses according to notes and records found at the high school. 

Judge Roberta Hayashi, one of the judges documented in Mitchell’s notes reportedly  used non-profit cancer organizations to launder money to her campaigns and kickback favors to Silicon Valley’s top tech industry executives whose divorces come before her in family court. Hayashi, a former judge in criminal court, has reportedly received unreported campaign contributions, and repayments on real estate owned in the upscale Los Gatos community. Hayashi’s connection to the Los Gatos Police indicate much of the sex trafficking has gone through law enforcement officers tied to the Los Gatos and San Jose police. 

Disappearing Families

Sex trafficking in Silicon Valley  has been  concealed by  local media that has secret deals to kill stories related to the local courts. Judges drag out divorces to isolate children in order to traffic them. Once a divorce drags out for five years, children become isolated from their extended families and neighbors, allowing them to disappear without raising eyebrows.  

Erasing children to traffic them begins with court orders that  appoint lawyers to make decisions for a judge. Decisions are rarely based on the BEST INTEREST OF THE CHILD  and more for the best interest of the pocketbooks of judges and lawyers. Soon after an appointment,  lawyers will claim  to need appointment of custody evaluators. Most nefarious include Phil Stahl, Leslie Packer, Michael Sullivan and Ken Perlmutter, whom BJ Fadem is known to coordinate with in order to rig report outcomes in favor of a parent in on the sex trafficking scam. 

Judge Steve Austin of Contra Costa, Judge Patricia Lucas of Santa Clara and Judge Mathew Gary of Sacramento  appeared to be ring leaders of the operation, where their positions in the state courts provided them assured immunity. 

Connection to Sacramento 
One diagram in the Mitchell notes indicate Sacramento judge Mathew Gary arranged  part of the  payment  scheme  through court clerks and court reporters who were able to launder money disguised as cash payments for transcripts that were   buried in fee awards made to lawyers throughout the state. The diagram additionally shows connections and protections through local governments including elected district attorney Mark Peterson, whose sex scandals and coverups are now being reported in the press following his indictment and disbarment. District Attorney Jeff Rosen is reportedly the target of the next indictment, and recall waive resulting in the failure of his office to prosecute the undocumented immigrant who killed Willow Glen mom Bambi Larson, and the homeless man who raped a San Martin woman early in 2019. 

Children Who Escape
Several children, now grown, have come forward to describe how they were groomed for sex trafficking. Therapists appointed by the court used gaslighting and torcher to get them to hate protective parents. Once the protective parent has been legally removed by the courts, the children report being offered drugs by their court appointed lawyers and abusive parents.  Therapists also recommend prescription drugs that are forcibly given to children by court order, over the objections of protective parents.  Kids describe losing friends who don’t understand the court process, slipping grades, and dropping out because they felt invisible and lost their family support system. Some become incarcerated only to find their family gone when they are released. Once the children have been isolated from their  family and community, they are ripe for the trafficking rings being operated by a core group of judges and lawyers in our family courts. 

In addition to family courts, Mitchell’s papers indicate area lawyers have been secretly settling sex abuse cases against judges, high profile prosecutors,  as well as teachers and administrators at Notre Dame, Presentation and Mitty high schools. Students from those schools were told to hire lawyers and then were gaged from talking about the abuse. Robert Allard, a close friend of the DA’s office,  appeared to be negotiating many of these settlements in a manner that would prevent the DA’s office from prosecuting the most heinous sex abuses of children that involved connections to local lawyers, judges and custody evaluators working in Silicon Valley’s criminal and family courts.

Divorce Attorney Elise Mitchell's Private Files Document Blow Jobs to Judges

Divorce Attorney Elise Mitchell's Private Files Document Blow Jobs to Judges

James Towery sexually harassed the legal secretary in his own law firm. The problem for Towery was that the secretary kept notes, and his wife, Marilyn Morgan , a partner in the firm with her husband, James Towery, and father, found out. That landed James Towery in divorce court, which he and Marilyn quickly shifted out of the county with the help of Marilyn’s father, a well connected lawyer with the local Bar. 

Judge James L. Stoelker has been using his contacts from representing big banks in a money laundering scheme designed to kick back money from the sale of homes in local divorce cases.

Judge Manley has been rigging outcomes in drug court, while getting kickbacks from the pharmaceutical industry. 

Judge Roberta Hayashi has used non-profit cancer organizations to launder money to her campaigns  and has done so at some of the most elite fundraisers in the Los Gatos homes of Silicon Valley’s top CEOs and tech industry executives. 

For the past 20 years women lawyers, clerks and secretaries have been keeping records of lawyers gone wrong. Those records are now cropping up and being shared. Just as former President Bill Clinton had to deal with Monica’s Blue Dress problem, local lawyers and judges are no longer able to contain the secrets they hoped would remain buried in secret settlements and court files that the local  media never wanted to touch. 

Divorce Attorney Elise Mitchell’s high turnover in her office may come back to bite her as one former employee kept secret recordings that outline collusion with the local district attorney’s office and the courts. 

Papers recovered from Notre Dame High School  show Mitchell as holding the notes and secrets of some of Santa Clara  County’s most powerful judges and lawyers. 

Notes contained in the papers show  elaborate schemes that involve Santa Clara University, Stanford, Presentation , Norte Dame and St Mary’s in San Jose where divorce lawyers were using  local courts to assure a steady stream of young women and boys  to sex trafficking rings. Payments from local law firms were also linked to the court clerk of Judge Matthew Gary in Sacramento. The clerk was then running payments through court reporters to private supervision centers  and real estate businesses where spouses and relatives own interests. Lists explain the scheme launders money through the relatives of judges overseeing divorce and custody cases.
