we have filed a Florida Bar complaint against Jeffrey Hap- lawyer in Jupiter Florida.

I will summarize what is in the complaint,  it is 23 pages including signed fraud docments by HAP, here is some of the highlights included in the Bar  Complaint report

1. during a bitter divorce procedure, and after HAP must admit that the pre-nup is real (costing thousands$$$$$)  he now sets up a conspiracy with my future ex-wife to put me in an unfavorable light with the judge

2. HAP drafts a fraudulant document about my son driving after him "DANGEROUSLY CLOSE, SHOUTING AND MAKING OBSCENE HAND GESTURES", this is on a Thursday

3. he makes two almost two indentical copies

4. Monday he calls my ex-wife to have her sign the conspiracy document, and explains to her that this will help the case,  he is an officier of the court so the judge will believe it

5. they also file a police report 4 days later, explaining they   are in fear, it takes 4 days, why they did not file right after the incident they said happened is odd, but again it adds to HAPs plan

6. Hap signs the fraudulant document "UNDER PENALITIES OF PERJURY"

7. it is submitted to the divorce judge who reads it and explains to Attorney Hap that he turned it into the wrong court, and to file it in another court.

8. Hap never files the document, the belief is that he accomplished his goal, BIAS my judge.

9. they also ask the judge to have me confined (arrested) based on this document, again the judge refuses, but now she in aware and most likely believing HAP, why would an officier of the court submit such a fraud. 

10. Hap did not know we requested the courthouse surveillance video of that day, which clearly show the cars leaving the parking lot.   (yes we got him)

11.Hap did not also know that after they left the courthouse a deputy stood with my son and 3 others for over 15 minutes (we included the deputy statement in the bar complaint)

12. we have Hap on several different lies and criminal perjury

13. however, it does not stop there

14. Hap reviewed my ex-wifes financial statement in court,  AND he personally signed her live-in boyfriends

15. he should have seen that both reported that they paid rent for the same home, again, he modified the law to suit his goal

16. HAP later in the case drops the boyfriend because he says "NO MONEY"

because HAP has committed perjury, emortionally and  financially damaged me, tried to have me arrested based on the fradulant document we have asked the Florida bar to

1. DISBAR HIM

2. REIMBURSE ME FOR MY FIANCIAL LOSSES

3. REFER THIS CASE TO THE STATE ATTORNEY SO THEY CAN PROSECUTE HIM FOR PERJURY

this is not about a bitter divorce, but actions of an OFFICIER OF THE COURT voilating the law for his gain,    and most importantly TRYING TO RESTICT THE FREEDOM OF AN INNOCENT AMERICAN BASED ON A  FRAUD ON THE COURT

BAR COMPLAINT BY JOHN GEORGE THROWN OUT

AUTHOR: Jeffrey Hap - (United States of America)

On February 4, 2013, the Florida Bar determined that the malicious and false complaint filed by John P. George against attorney Jeffrey Hap has been closed by the Florida Bar.  The Florida Bar found that Mr. Hap had not violated any rules adopted by the Supreme Court of Florida.

Accordingly, the file has been closed.  The Florida Bar also went on to say that all of Mr. George's concerns should have been brought to the attention of the court while the case was pending.

On a personal note, this lawyers' opinion was that obviously Mr. George did not bring any of his complaints to the Court during the trial, because they were false and malicious and were unsustainable before the court.  Although he may have had a valid appeal in regards to the large temporary relief sum awarded to his former wife by the judge on the case, Mr. George and his attorney neglected to appeal the ruling at that time, so he forfeit the right to complain about it.

JOHN GEORGE FATHER OF PILL MILL TWINS

AUTHOR: Jeffrey Hap - (United States of America)

American Pain: The Largest U.S. Pill Mill's Rise and Fall By Felix Gillette on June 06, 2012

Christopher George and his twin brother Jeffrey opened their first pain clinic in a strip mall on the outskirts of Fort Lauderdale in 2008. There were a couple of rooms and a handful of doctors. No appointment was necessary.It was a good year to be in the business of servicing people in pain. The economy was tanking. The real estate market was in free fall. People were losing their homes, businesses, savings, and jobs, and looking for an escape from their discomfort. The George brothers ran an ecumenical clinic. Their doctors didnt discriminate among the causes of human sufferingbe it back pain, fibromyalgia, toothaches, cancer, depression, divorce, boredom, mental illness, unemployment, hip replacement, or withdrawal symptoms.Just about everyone who came through their doors walked away with the same remedy: a prescription for a month-long supply of powerful opioids. More often than not, the pills were small and bluegeneric, immediate-release oxycodone-hydrochloride, which everyone called roxies. The customers often left satisfied and frequently returned.

Jeffrey helped run the nations largest pill mill operation.  The George twins, now 31, grew up in Florida in an entrepreneurial family.  Their father, John George, owned Majestic Custom Homes, a luxury development business that fell into bankruptcy during the recession. While their fathers company crumbled, the twins business flourished.  John George was never arrested for involvement with his son's and their the Pill Mills.  Each of their four clinicsAmerican Pain, Executive Pain, Hallandale Pain, and East Coast Painwas bigger than the last.

Christopher invested in two pharmacies. They charged patients $50 a referral to visit a mobile MRI business in a parking lot behind a strip club. Jeffrey bought a monster truck, a Lamborghini, and a bunch of boats. They advertised on billboards. They gave their mom a job.Palm Beach sheriff officeChris paid doctors up to $100 a prescriptionOxycodone and hydrocodone are opioids and controlled substances; their active ingredients are derived from the opium poppy. Each year in December, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) announces how much of such controlled substances may be produced in the country in the following year. For 2012, the DEA has set the quota for oxycodone at 98 million grams, or about 108 tons, and for hydrocodone at 59 million grams, or 65 tons. Thousands of businesses participate in the multi-step process by which the opium derivatives are harvested in India, Turkey, and Australia, turned into dozens of different generic and brand-name narcotic medications, distributed throughout the U.S., and resold to individuals via prescriptions. Theres lots of money to be made along the way. In 2011, U.S. sales of prescription painkillers amounted to $9 billion, according to IMS Health.Opioids are not only profitable, theyre addictive and dangerous. They can depress respiration. Take too many or mix them with other drugs, such as alcohol, and a patient can stop breathing altogether. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 14,800 Americans died from overdosing on opioids in 2008, the most recent year data is availablemore than the number of deaths from heroin or cocaine.Most opioids are Schedule II drugs, subject to regulatory restrictions from state and federal agencies. But the regulations are not always clear. Sell too many, too fast, with too much marketing or too little discretion, and suddenly the veil of social acceptability is yanked away. The resulting exposure can be perilous. Those who cross over the sometimes hazy line separating legal from illegal handling of the pills often watch as federal agents suspend their licenses, seize their products, and arrest them in high-profile busts with gothic code names. Recent crackdowns have included Operation Snake Oil, Operation Pill Nation, and Operation Juice Doctor 2.In the spring of 2010, the George brothers were the target of Operation Oxy Alley. Local and federal cops raided their businesses, confiscated their opioids, and seized millions of dollars of assets, including safes full of cash stashed away in their moms attic, according to prosecutors. In August 2011 the Department of Justice unsealed a five-count indictment outlining a range of charges, from racketeering to possession with intent to distribute controlled substances, against 32 individuals, including 13 doctors and one wholesaler involved with the Georges clinics. From 2008 to 2010, according to the federal agents, the George twins were the largest illegal dispensers of oxycodone in the U.S.

Lawyer Doesn't Respond to Accusations

AUTHOR: Incompetent Answer from Attorney - (United States of America)

In reading this Rip-Off Report, the Rebuttal and further comments, I would have to consider that the accusations made by the original complainant would be for the most part true, as the attorney did not dispute or address any of the allegations, but responded only to the person's individual and family character.

Hap describes the complainant as a very angry, disgruntled ex-husband, who has sought to damage Hap's reputation by making false accusations.  Why wouldn't someone be angry and disgruntled if the opposing lawyer filed fraudulent documents to the court system?  If that was the case, I am sure that it caused the complainant more harm than good whether it be emotionally or financially.

Furthermore, I am not surprised to see a builder go out of business during these economic times.  So to mention that his business is defunct and/or out of business should be no surprised to anyone.  I further looked into the Clerk's website, and found that he was arrested but was never convicted on any of these charges. 

Hap believes that his reputation is being damaged by making false accusations, but what about Hap's actions?  If fraudulent documents were prepared, signed and presented to the wrong court by Hap, then his character should also come into question. 

Apparently, it seems someone must know more about Hap's character and has referenced numerous cases in their response.  I hope that the Florida Bar does their full investigation and if the allegations are true, they should disbar Hap, award damages to the complainant and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.

Ineptitude

AUTHOR: Smoke=Fire - (United States of America)

It is indeed very interesting to see that a lawyer, who should be skilled in the arts of debate and argumentative speaking, appears to be unable to do either.  

Instead the need arises to finger point at the what he "believes" may or may not have occurred with his accusers business and is privy to mans feelings "angry."  Isn't the aptitude to research another key skill a lawyer should have?  

Of course, the full shift of focus from this lawyer's increasing list of shortcomings wouldn't be complete without commenting, in caps, about his accusers felonious sons.  And is the mother mentioned synonymous with the lawyers ex-wife client?  

The original report accusing the lawyer specifies only items relevant to his complaint.  In short, the man filing the complaint did not look for skeletons in the lawyers closet and take cheap shots mentioning issues within the lawyers family, business or home.  And we all have skeletons don't we.  501998CA001070XXCDAN   502010CA009877XXXXMB   502012CA005578XXXXMB   SC05-1054  9:2007cv81027

Builder John George, dad of pill-pushing suspects, arrested on ripoff charges

By Beach Blogger at 30 April, 2010, 4:09 pm
John George's mug shot (Courtesy PBSO) John George , the once high-flying, publicity-seeking north county builder, was arrested by Palm Beach County Sheriff s deputies today on a warrant from Sarasota County. Hes accused of stealing money from would-be homeowners in that area of Floridas west coast. Palm Beach Gardens resident George, 58, is the father of Chris and Jeff George , the twin brothers whose clinics throughout Palm Beach County were raided by authorities last month on the suspicion that they peddled pain pills to addicts. The elder George, who once built a home for the Riviera Beach family of a cancer patient live on ABCs Extreme Makeover : Home Edition in 2006, is being held at the county lockup in West Palm Beach on $500,000-bond. The warrant is for five counts of misappropriation of construction funds. He was arrested at his home this morning, said PBSO spokeswoman Teri Barbera . He was very polite, very nice. He agreed to accompany the deputy. He didnt seem to understand what the warrant was about. Details on the charges were not immediately available. But the warrant was originated by the North Port Police Department, whose public information specialist was not working today.

JOHN PAUL GEORGE - RIPOFF BUILDER

AUTHOR: Jeffrey Hap - (United States of America)

My name is Jeffrey Hap.  I am an attorney concentrating in divorce and family law, who represented the Former Wife of John George.  He is a very angry, disgruntled ex-husband, who has sought to damage my reputation by making false accusations.  John George is the former owner of Majestic Homes.  He has been arrested for stealing deposits from his former clients, and I believe his company is now defunct and/or out of business because of him. 

Most interestingly, is that his twin sons, Jeff and Chris George, are now in jail.  They are infamous for running one the largest PILL MILL operations in Florida, and both are serving lengthly sentences for their crimes, which include murder.  Their father was not arrested in regards to the Pill Mills, although many other family members were either arrested or implicated, including their mother.

It is very interesting to see, the apple does not fall far from the tree.
