There are some good quality lawyers in southeast Michigan. Ezra N. Goldman, Anthony Della Pellee and Jennifer Cordon Thor just to name a few. Jeanne V. Barron (P37138) of Raftery, Janeczek & Hoelscher, P.C. is not one of them.
Plaintiff, Ms. X on 02/12/08 incurred a slip and fall accident on the Shiawassee Condominium Association property at 7:10am. This was one year exactly after the 02/12/07 correspondence submitted by Attorney Ezra N. Goldman and days after the 01/21/08 correspondence submitted by Attorney Jennifer Cordon Thor.
The Shiawassee Condominium Association and its maintenance staff of two Robert (Bob) Piech and Thomas Blanding were defendants in the previous litigation 2005-067809-NZ (public record information). The two were sued by same plaintiff that entered Case No. GC 09 1653 in the Michigan 46th District Court. The maintenance staff of two, Robert Bob Piech and Thomas Blanding appeared on defendants preliminary lay and expert witness list offered by their attorney Jeanne Barron. [continued below]....
..... None of the board members (Shiawassee Condo Association) were listed ONLY Piech and Blanding who are somewhat illiterate, only maintenance and were sued by this same plaintiff in a previous litigation, 2005-067809-NZ in the Oakland County Circuit Court. She (Barron) knew this. She was the representative attorneys for both Piech and Blanding.
Believe it or not, the Shiawassee Condominium Association (Southfield, MI) through its attorney, Jeanne Barron denied that it breached any of its duties and further denies that it was negligent but states it was guided by, and strictly observed all of its legal duties and obligations imposed by operation of law, the condominium bylaws and otherwise, in that all of the actions of its agents, servants, and/or employees were careful, proper, prudent and lawful. . . . it took proper action to administer and enforce its master deeds and bylaws but a request for snow maintenance was requested 12/17/2007. The request was refused 12/24/2007 these items are co-owner responsibility the association will take no action on them clear snow. Additional wording, None [snow] available at this time. How about that None [snow] available at this time. The Shiawassee Condominium Association on 12/24/2007 in writing refused to honor its legal obligation stated in the condominium documents, Article V, Section 5 and the Michigan law statue MCL 559.153. (Shiawassee) on 12/24/2007 refused to honor its fiduciary responsibility that it [defendant] accepts in its Spring 2005 newsletter. While defendant (Shiawassee Condominium Association) is not surer of safety, it has a duty to exercise DUE CARE, Roberts v Stevens Enterprise, Inc. (1999) WL 334455020. Defendant (Shiawassee) on 12/24/2007 in writing refused to exercise DUE CARE.
Wait! Wait! The best is yet to come. Barron, in her introduction 01/07/2010 Summary Disposition, page 2 , Case No. GC 09 1653 in the Michigan 46th District Court says (plaintiff) was not unfamiliar to defendant. Truthfully, Defendant and Barron were not unfamiliar to plaintiff; all played part in a previous litigation, Case No. 2005-067809-NZ. Plaintiff prevailed. She knew this. She was involved as a representative attorney
The January 07, 2010 Summary Disposition, page 2 according to Jeanne Barron says plaintiff Ms. X alleges that, on September 18, 2008, she slipped and fell on accumulated ice on a sidewalk in the condominium complex. (See Plaintiffs Complaint, paragraphs 17 and 18) The summary disposition stated inaccurate information. Plaintiff, Ms. X did not slip and fall on accumulated ice on the sidewalk in the condominium complex on September 18, 2008; this is not stated in the complaint, paragraph 17 and 18, Case No. GC 09 1653. How about that!!! A Michigan practicing lawyer - thirty years - Inept, Incompetent and Obtuse.
Defendant, Shiawassee Condominium Association (Southfield, MI) in its (Spring 2009) newsletter states owners must carry condo insurance; this is NOT stated in the bylaws. Defendant (Shiawassee) must carry insurance. This is stated in the bylaws, Article IV. Compliance of this bylaw ruling, Article IV is mandated by Michigan law statue MCL 559.153. Defendant shall (will) keep detailed books/records; this is stated in the bylaws, Article 1, Section 3. Compliance of this bylaw ruling Article 1, Section 3 is mandated by Michigan law statues MCL 559.153 and MCL 559.154 (1). Notification of all meetings shall (will) be forwarded to co-owners by mail. This is a bylaw ruling, Article 1 (f). Compliance of this bylaw ruling, Article 1 (f) is mandated by Michigan law statue MCL 559.153. The [condominium association] bylaws do not supersede or overcome the law of Michigan. Barron now inflamed says this (all above) is harming her reputation. Laugh. Go ahead and laugh. Laugh. Laugh, Laugh. Too bad Barron. Freedom of Speech is protected by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and the Constitution of Michigan 1963, Section 5. Read it. She Barron could file a formal complaint but must challenge the Doctrine of Unclean Hands. One with "unclean hands" cannot approach the court.
Now, now Baron via the professional networking site tells us that she is senior attorney at Rafftery, Janeczek and Hoelscher (Farmington Hills, MI), a six-person injury insurance defense and litigation. She tells us that she is a Bachelor of Science degree receiptant (University of Michigan) specializing in Special Education and Journalism. She tells us also that she is a Juris Doctorate degree receipt ant (Wayne State University). Based on her representation, Case No. GC 09 1653 in the Michigan 46th District Court, she's not incredibly intelligent and not an experienced attorney. She's inept, incompetent and obtuse. This is quite visible in her representation, Case No. GC 09 1653 in the Michigan 46th District Court. The complaint is written on three counts. She, Barron acknowledges this before the tribute. "Your honor, you know this case is written on three counts". Her 01/07/2010 summary disposition, however, does not address three counts. Laugh. Go ahead and laugh. Laugh, laugh, laugh.
The previous litigation, Case No. 2005-067809-NZ in the Oakland County Circuit Court dissolved with a signed and sealed confidentiality agreement. All parties and their attorneys signed the agreement. Barron represented three individuals employed by the Shiawassee Condo Association: Thomas Blanding, Robert (Bob) Piech and Mark Hawley and signed that agreement. Timothy Egerer representing the Shiawassee Condo Association (Southfield, MI) signed the agreement. She (Barron) could not dispatch information from Case No. 2005-067809-NZ, transfer and or enter it to another case. She did. Specific information stated "in writing" Case No. 2005-067809NZ was put into the 01/07/2010 Summary Disposition, Case No. GC 09 1653 (Michigan 46th District Court) from Jeanne Barron. The plaintiff, not Barron disclosed it to tribune. She was therefore forced to respond and did. She (Barron) stood before the court and spoke lightly with her head down "I didn't bring it up because . . . . Laugh. Go ahead and laugh. Laugh, laugh, laugh.
The Michigan 46th District Court was never suppose to OPENLY be informed that there was an existing previous litigation involving same plaintiff, Shiawassee Condo Association also Robert (Bob) Piech and Thomas Blanding. Plaintiff's attorney, James G. Schmier who was released as counsel just days before the hearing was to stop case from going forward. He, Schmier worked for Jeanne Barron and Jeffrey Vollmer not his client. Once discovered, he (Schmier) petitioned the court to release him. Jeanne, of course, appeared for hearing 01/11/2010 said she was just there for observation but forced her way in front of Judge Richards and offered input "Your honor, my concern is that Mr. Schmier is [plaintiff] third lawyer". [Transcript 01/11/2010, page 9, line 20-21]. Court was not in session to hear her concern. Court was not in session to hear her at all. She (Barron) attempted to influence Judge William Richards and succeeded. She (Barron) won the case but on crutches, one, Judge William Richards and two, coursing plaintiff's attorney, James G. Schmier. Schmier worked for Barron not plaintiff, his client. Other used crutches were fraud and supressing material facts. She, however, missed the main and most important one needed, an independent evaluation by Dr. Scott T. Munson (orthopedic surgeon). Dr. Munson is frequently used by Michigan defense attorneys representing insurance companies, but he is only an orthopedic surgeon. Jeanne Barron, hummmmmm a Michigan law license mistake!
The Michigan Attorney Grievance Commission was/is non-helpful, complaint boards are. The attorney, James G. Schmier filed a lawsuit in the Oakland County Circuit Court, Case No. 2011-123947-CZ. Those complaint boards hurt his reputation, APPARENTLY. Case was disposed main reason, Doctrine of Unclean Hands but venue was improper. The complaint, Case No. 2011-123947-CZ stated more non-truths than actual truths. This one, love it. He said defendant filed a complaint with the State Bar of Michigan. Defendant filed a complaint against him (Schmier) with the Attorney Grievance Commission (Detroit, MI) NOT the State Bar in Lansing, MI. He even exhibited proof, a reply letter from the Attorney Grievance Commission. Laugh. Go ahead and laugh. Laugh, laugh, laugh.
The Attorney Grievance Commission is located in Wayne County [Michigan] NOT Oakland County [Michigan] and the State Bar is located in Ingham County [Michigan] not Oakland County [Michigan]. Laugh. Go ahead and laugh. Laugh, laugh, laugh.
