Is Your Divorce Lawyer a Crook or Part of a Criminal Organization ?
Lawsuit Uses A.I. To Catch Divorce Attorneys Stealing From Women, the Elderly and Independent Tech Guys
If you have to ask if your attorney fee bills look right, it’s probably too late. Divorce attorneys Hector and Marilyn Moreno along with a number of judges, cops and dirty divorce lawyers were sued in federal court during the 2020 pandemic related to COVID-19. The Plaintiff in the case used artificial intellegence, “AI”. to show the relationship between domestic violence and divorce cases and how attorneys in Santa Clara County are using those cases to fund a criminal organization that opoerates in California by selling the family homes and getting cops to write false police reports about domestic violence. The suit names the legal legacy Moreno siblings and Hector Moreno’s son, Micheal Moreno, who left the Santa Clara County DA’s office to set up shop with his aunt Marilyn with cases being funneled to them through Campbell’s Home Church, non- profits and police officers working for the Gilroy , Los Gatos and Los Altos police.
Former Santa Clara County prosecutor, Cindy Hendrickson, who conspired with DA Jeff Rosen and Stanford University law professor Michele Dauber to rig the Santa Clara County 2018 election such that she replaced Judge Aaron Persky on the local bench, is related to the Morenos through marriage and since she was elected, Hendrickson has been sitting in the county’s domestic violence court where she appears to be part of a criminal organization trafficking children and rigging divorce cases based on Hendrickson’s connections to the DA’s office and the founder of a charity, Ruth Pattrick Darlene, who runs a scam charity that serves only ” affluent ” vicitms , and that really operates to dragnet divorce cases for attorneys working for what appears to be a criminal organization operating in plain sight with impunity.
Brent Ostler’s federal case reveals a pattern and practice cops, divorce lawyers and judges engage in to rig divorce cases and fund bribes, fines, fees and sanctions for the benefit of the operation. These illegal payments and public corruption is funded with equity from the family home, where court ” Settlement Conference Officer” Sharon Roper uses her power to appoint Intero Real Estate agents and lock in home equity that is express delivered to the IOLTA trust accounts of lawyers working for the enterprise, while engaging in antitrust activity that is prohibited by state and federal law.
Ostler’s federal lawsuits name the Santa Clara County District Attorney Jeff Rosen, the Gilroy Police Department and private judge Sharon Roper who works as an attorney for the courts, in addition to the divorce lawyers and Intero agents Roper reguallry appoints to assure a flow of illegal commissions to Intero Real Estate and Berkshire Hathaway. Roper also feeds the enterprise referrals as the court’s ” Settlment Conference Officer” , where James Cox is appointed to the most corrupt cases, including the divore case of Intero founder John Thompson and retired judge Mary Ann Grilli, who appointed more cusotdy evaluatiors, referees, special masters, private jduges and minor’s counsel for the enterprise than any other judge in California’s history, where Judge Hendrickson, Judge Towery and Judge Scott are closing in fasted based on being enternched in the court and public corruption based on connections to the DA’s office. Following the death of her husband, Roper has reportedly carved out a new lookout postion inside the court where she funnels referrals, but also made up the title of temporary judge for ” Real Estate” , which is ourely made up.
Discovery in Osteler’s federal case has reportedly found government attorneys working overtime to shred documents , complaints and emails in order avoid discovery in the case. These governmetn attorneys and elected officials ( Susan Ellenberg, Mike Wasserman and Cindy Chavez) have been telling insiders Ostler’s case was brought in pro se, and will not survive in a manner that will ever be dicovered. Ward Penfold, Kim Hara, Micheal Rossi and risk managerment employee for the county, Matt Fisk, were captured on a recordings reportedly held in the offices of tax attorney Ronda Edgar, scheming to destroy evidence and deflect criminal investigations that include investigating money laundering and tax evasion scehemes connected to real estate transactions and divorce cases.
Intero Attorney Heather Wang Linked to Weed , Sex & Corruption- LA & OC
In a related case, Ostler filed against Intero Real Estate agents, a company affliated with Berkshire Hathaway. The suit names Intero attorney Heather Wang, who is reportedly running blackmarket real estate scams connected to the LA and Organge County’s drug and sex trafficking rings operating through private judge cases before Keith Dolnick, Shelia Sonenshine, Tom Tuttle and David Weinberg.
Dolnick links the enterprise to out-of-state crimes discovered in Arizona, Texas and Florida, where the Santa Clara County DA employee Kasey Halcon is known to traffic vicitms so they can not be found and brought to testify against police officers, lawyers , judges and other ” justice partners” operating the enterprise with the knowledge and assistance of court insiders.
Dirty cops, divorce lawyers, CPS workers, private businesses and even non- profit or charity organiations , along with court clerks, judges, private paraleagals and top ranking employees at the state bar are the gatekeepers allowing this criminal conduct to persist over the past 20 years, leaving families bankrupted and homeless, and divorce attorneys , dirty cops and judges wealthy with secret assets and ghost properties that never make to to their form 700 disclosures to the public.
Acting under the color of law, dirty divorce attorneys funded their criminality with home equity found in family homes, charity donations to Women SV and state and federal grants paid under the Violence Against Women Act. San Jose and Los Gatos police officer associations reportedly use paralegals, attorneys and bookkeepers to “manage” the day to day operation and money laundering scheme , according to recordings found on attorneys Elise Mitchell, Mark Erickson, Carlos Martinez, Michelle Hales, Christina Adames, Jason Pintar, Richard Roggia, Laura Perry, Annie Fortino, David Patton, Walter Hammon, Hector Moreno, Natalie Depril, Rebekha Frye, Lynne Yates Carter, Tracey Duell Cazes, Heather Allan, Sean Onderick, Ronda Edgar, John Hannon, and Bill Dresser as secreted by attorney Sydney Hall. These recordings are the blueprint for the criminal organization operating in plain sight in the state’s family court cases and filings.
Over the past 10 years, as trained by attorney and MFT, Valerie Houghton, attorneys are known for secretly and illegally recording in their offices, and in court, in order to line out bribes owed to judges, cops, court staff, court reporters and court appointed experts that result in court orders and fees that fuel the operation in Santa Clara . As it has since 20002, when Judge William Danser got caught for doing it with Los Gatos Police in traffic court cases.
MOVING CORRUPTION TO ORANGE COUNTY MONEY AND HOME EQUITY SCAMS
The operation expanded to Organge County in 2012, after attorney Keith Dolnick and court CEO David Yamasaki formally joined forces. The enterprise became unstoppable its players got Judge Persky Recalled, and Judge Hendrickson appointed to replace him as she also maintained her position on the Santa Clara County Domestic Violence Council. These public positions provided for the rigging of legal outcomes and kept the flow of state and federal money pouring in to county coeffers as the pandemic dried up tax income that supports the count courts and DAs office.
Also on the council are attorney Nicole Ford and Victim Witness ” Director” Kasey Halcon, who have assured bribes for local cops and judges that keep them in a quasi political office and their boss, and head of the mob, DA Jeff Rosen, in office. Ford , and Halcon have personally acted to protect bad cops with the Gilroy, Los Gatos and San Jose police department who are known to be beating spouses, selling child porn and covering their criminality up in the county’s divorce courts, as is a common practice for dirty cops, judges, and lawyers.
Dirty Lawyers – What they Look Like To Families, Children and Orphans: Attorney Rebekah Frye Killed Her Client , Collects Fees, And Told Her Cleints:
“We Own the Los Gatos Police” .
Frye was the attorney known for causing her client to jump off an overpass, then collecting $800,000 in fees from her estate with imposter Vietnam Veteran and now retired attorney Brad Baugh, who continues to be paid from the operation.
When attorney Frye handled the divorce case of powerful tech executive Don Henja in the early 2000s , she slipped the case directly into the enterprise. She got her own client on paid supervised visitation, and racked up nearly $800,000 in legal fees in no time at all, eyeing the Los Altos home equity that throwing the case in Don’s favor would seek to assure. But in March of 2003, Gloria suprised the criminal attorneys she had gotten mixed up with when she climbed onto a Silicon Valley overpass and took her own life by jumping on to Highway 101. Shortly before she jumped, she was heard telling a friend she had been fired to from her tech job at Oracle. Without it , she would not be able to afford to keep her attorney, or pay the supervised visation and court appointed custody evalautors to see her own children, as the enterprise demanded.
Even in death Gloria had no peace. Frye had her heirs rummage through the house the night Gloria died, and Frye came along for the break in, taking all evidence that could expose the enterprise before Gloria’s husband Don could return to the family home. Frye then hired attorney Brad Baugh to drag the case out in divorce and probate court another 5 years. When it was finally moved into private judging before Neville Spadafore, Baugh and Frye got ever dime of the $800,000 in fees from the estate Gloria had anticipated would go to her children.
State Bar Ignores Attorney Crime
Court files in the federal case brought by Ostler claims to have been prepared using Artificial Intellegence and scapping court dockets to reveal the uselessness of the state bar and the willingness of state bar officials to allow attorney crime to harm families and children.with impunity. State Bar executives Suzanne Grant and Vanessa Holton have reportedly been shredding complaints and diverting attention from the criminal organziation operating in Santa Clara county with the help of Judge James Towery, former chief trial counsel at the state bar. According to recordings, and papers leaked by attorney Elise Mitchell through local process servers and preists operating pedo rings in local San Jose private Catholic schools, the enterprise expanded to Organe County where Judge Dolnick works behind the scenes with appeallate attorney Garrett Daily and Keith Dolnick, his brother, to assure deposits in attorney IOLTA trust accounts that pay off the state bar insiders to bury their complaints and misdeeds as was done for Thomas Giardi over the past 10 years.
Ostler however could never detect all the cases that would evidence the pattern he alleges, as the courts have secreted the dockets and information from the public domain that Ostler would need to have access to. The most secreted cases appear to come from the enterprise, as plotted and planned by attorney Elise Mithcell, WomenSV Founder Ruth Patrick Darlene, and Judge Hendrickson , who has accepted bribes through her Moreno family connections, as arranged by attorney Sean Onderick and an network of paralegals, bookkeepers and legal secretaries working legtimately in the family law community to conceal their criminality from being discovered by the press, or public.
How they Get Away With It: The Lawyers & Paralegals
Divorce attorney Carlos Martinez stole from clients, botched their cases, and violated court orders. But Martinez, much like other divorce lawyers across the state, acted as an informant for the DA, and supported Jeff Rosen’s political career, so he was able to engage in criminality with immpunity. When the bar had evidence of Martinez’s unethcial and criminal conduct, they offered him a permanent vacation, or rather confidential discipline designed to conceal his criminality through a bogus probation period where he continued his criminality cases up and down the state.
As a civil, family law and appeal attorney, Carlos Martinez has represented some of the county’s biggest criminals. He is connected to cases through attorney, Brad Baugh, whose perjury was ignored by the Santa Clara, Contra Costa and Alameda County District Attorneys. Papers found during the investitaiton of DA Mark Peterson, revealed the criminal organization, but protestors at the time were just happy to see Mark Peterson indicted, disbarred and stripped of his pension,
Walnut Creek based forensic CPA Charles Burak, operates through the local bar in Contra Costa and Santa Clara County where he has joined the organzation with forensic CPAs Mike Thompson, James Butera and Sally White. These CPAs make up false reports for the benefit of the enterprise, where and court appointments give them qualified immunity and protection from California’s toothless consumer protection agencies such as the state bar, the Department of Real Estate, the Board of Psycology and the Board of Accountancy. The work of the CPAs and the criminality of the lawyers is concealed from the taxing authorities by attorneys including Sean Onderick and tax attorney Ronda Edgar, who handles money laundering for lawyers working in Santa Clara , Santa Cruz and Monterey counties. Sean Onderick , who works in Edgar’s offices, but does not hang out his shingle, connects the tax issues with the real estate and malpractice civil cases brought by attorneys Bill Dresser, John Hannon and Sydney Hall , where Onderick appears to have immunity from being sued for malpracitice. Nonetheless , he has demanded clients pay him in cash, money orders and even sex that is secreted from his second wife, a former client who allegedly broke up his first marriage.
While operating out of the building that houses private judge and mediation busienss JAMs , the offices of private judge Richard Roggia and the law firm Hoge Fenton, Martinez reportedly provides paralegals and investigators to the organization when he is comfortable these professionals are willing to launder money to attorneys, court reporters and private security firms with funds coming from cash, gift cards, Bitcoin deposits or liens on equity familes have in their homes such that they are untraceable.
San Martin resident, Margie Russo, worked as a paralegal in the law offices of Richard Roggia, a Gilroy based attorney who moved to the San Jose JAMS building to funnel business for the organization to B-level attorneys in the form of private judge appointments JAMS attorneys did not want. Russo, used her position to get ” secondary employment as a ” bookkeeper ” for the clients connected to Roggia’s firm. Margie’s job was to deflect media attention by monitoring mainstream and social media accounts for potential leaks and new business for the organization, while secretly recording court hearings and hacking the phones of their client’s former spouse in a manner that assured a steady stream of income flowed off the books in the form of ghost income benefiting the organization and its players. Margie also reportedly did the books for Intero Real Estate’s black market transactions, and for Tanimura and Antle’s farming operatings where seed counterfiting and human trafficking rings operated through farmers located up and down the Salinas Valley and in Yuma , AZ. where divorce cases were rigged by Hoge Fenton’s sister firm. Fenton Keller.
Mitchell Papers and secret recordings leaked by attorney Elise Mitchell through local process servers and clients doing ” free consults” reveal Margie helped develop a string of B-list attorneys, real estate investors and other professionals willing to look the other way, as she arranged bribes that would come in the form of equity in the family home, cash payments or ” special loans” arranged through lending expert Shelia Pott, in Saratoga, or John and Tim Filice down in Gilroy, all protected in their criminality by Jeff Rosen, the state’s most corrupt DA, who is always on the take. By 2018, judges on the take got special home equity lines that were paid off by attorneys appointed by public judges to act as private judges or attorneys appointed to represent children, where they incited conflict and assured payments to the enterprise would continue.
Margie (Burbank) Russo assured payments to labor contractors, real estate agents and contractors working in a blackmarket for Intero , private security companies capable of spying on vicitms seeking help from adovocates, and local charities claiming to assist alleged domestic violence vicitms, while operating a criminal organization and moving millions out of the home equity belonging to California families, and to attorney fees or payments benefitting the organization.
According to sources close to Margie Russo’s former husband “special bookkeeping services” Margie offered, include arraging sex favors for high paying clients, and other invaluable services to the organization. Russo’s help and that offered from secretary Michelle Harper, wife of vocational examiner Tim Harper, as well as paralegals in Walter Hammon’s office , reportedly paid for the operation of Gilroy’s blackmarket real estate scams, human trafficking and pedo rings that operated out of rental properties managed by Filice and that was funded with hard money loans assured by prominent real estate dedvelopers Tim and John Filice , as well as Tim Fortinio who reportedly used “Edward Jones Investments” in Gilroy to launder large sums of undisclosed investments for the enterprise. Powerful real estate developer John Sobrato took lead on funding pedo operations through Santa Clara University as connected to family courts. where SCU ” Innocence Project ” attorney Karyn Sininu Towery serves as lookout to protect the organzation from any possible threats.
Settlment offers related to another federal claim against the enterprise appears to indicate imposter Intero real estate broker associate Patty Filice and John Filice’s neice , Courtnee Westendorf, used Gilroy’s Glen Loma real estate project to secret ghost real estate transactions and launder money through labor contractors connected to Gilroy wineries and Salinas Valley’s agricultural market. In 2020 the organization took in PPP loans made by the federal government during the pandemic as the organization was stealing family homes, bankrupting spouses and profiting from the abuse of children living in Silicon Valley and surrounding farming towns.
Russo is reportedly continuing in her criminality based out of the San Jose firm of Richard E. Glaze.
Prior to the filing of Ostler’s federal case, . Pinnacle Bank openly assisted in laundering loans, fees and home equity through the community bank as funds were brought to the organization through the bank’s board member and top ranking blackmarket sales agent, Patty Filice, who joined the operation with the help of John Thompson’s connections to the LDS church back in 2015. Thompson, founder of the Cupertino Intero franchise, has been protected by insiders in the federal government who act as special invesgtigators and prosecutors for the DOJ, When these insiders are involved in their own divorce cases, the organization quickly moves them into private judging before B-list attorneys James Cox, Ed Mills, Richard Rogga, Micheal Smith and court attorney Sharon Roper, who effectively act for the sole purpose of concealing asssets from an innocent spouse and converting the home and business equity of community estates to the profits of what has become a criminal operation acting in the state’s wealthiestcommunities during divorce, probate and custody proceedings.
James Cox worked for the courts back in the early 2000s and while he was there he pretended to operate as the court’s Settlement Conference Officer. In actuality Cox was setting up Silicon Valley’s blackmarket divorce lists. This means middle -class divorce cases went to B list attorneys, and the wealthier families were ushered through the A list of attorneys which includes retired superior court judges. such as Catherine Gallager, Barbara Spector and Mark Pierce, all contracted with JAMS.
Cox was appointed in the divorce case of Intero Founder John Thompson, where Thompson racked up millions in unreported fees from commissions, and PPP loans fradulently taken during the global pandemic. And while he charged excessive fees to the organziation’s “clients”, the organization’s participants, including court attorney Lisa Herrick, former city attorney in San Jose, where she protected bad San Jose cops, got special deals and protections for their children that were secreted by the court in secret dockets.

Judge Towery Took Over for Danser After Sinunu and Rosen Got Him Stripped Of His Pension
Santa Clara County Family Court Presiding Judge Julie Emede has been protecting absuive cops since she worked in the local Sheriff’s Department for the county’s “family violence” programs. She protected cops who wrote bad police reports, cops who abused their spouses and cops who molested their own children when those cops landed in the county’s family courts. Since that time , Emede has been protecting the judicary and the Los Gatos police, while working to keep anyone who questions a judge, dismissed as being either “crazy” or “disgrunted”. Emede also is known to refer the ex wives of cops to the non- profit WomenSV, an organization decribed by a number of DV “clients” as operating more like a training program for divorce attorneys getting more in fee awards just as they were taught by Judge Towery and now Justice Mary Greenwood back on April 28, 2017.
” When we got reffered to Women SV , we found ” therapy” sessions run by this super creepy looking woman who was always passing out a wooden donation box and getting referrals for a private judges and DV case scams that landed in court assignments before Judge Emede, Judge Towery, Judge Arand, Judge Grilli, Judge Stewart, Judge Chiarello, Judge Hyashi, Judge Pierce and Judge Drew Takaichi in public court.
Years before she became the first openly gay judge in Santa Clara County, Julie Emede was protecting dirty cops, celebrity sports figures, real estate agents and Silicon Valley tech executives willing to pay for justice. One Santa Clara County Sherifff Deputy, and former San Jose Police Officer got caught with child porn on his computer, and Emede helped cover it up as the cop entered into his own personal divorce case.
As former president of the local bar, Emede pronounced early on she would protect judges , no matter how dirty, from ” disgruntled ” litigants and lawyers who questioned the competency of any judge. Emede was involved in the second divorce case of Judge James Towery, and she knew his secrets, which elevated her power as the county’s family court presiding judge.
Judge Emede reportedly told divorcing couples to use Intero agent Terry Houghton to sell the family home. She thwarted the media when Judge Chiarello appointed corrupt and incompetent minor’s counsel that sent a young girl to live with the father who raped, drugged and killed her ,afterwhich Judge Emede told reporters from the San Jose Mercury it was fine, “we just missed the signs”.
Attorney Kathryn Schlepphorst , Emede’s former law partner, continues to act as the biggest asset for the criminal enterprise operating in the county’s local courts. She whispers in the ears of judges, keeps watch over referrals of cases, and looks for leaks that could expose the outright racketering that has harmed countless California families with the full knowledge of the state’s most powerful lawyers and judges.
