Law Offices of Gregory Ward Dwyer Greg W. Dwyer State Law Violations by Divorce Attorney Greg Dwyer Judge Pro Tem Code of Judicial Ethics Violation Sacramento California
In violation of California Code of Judicial Ethics Canons 1, 2, and 6D(9)(a), on his website divorce lawyer Greg Dwyer unlawfully promotes his status as a Sacramento Family Law Court temporary judge, or judge pro tem. The judge pro tem designation is misused by many attorneys for advertising and promotional purposes because it implies "insider" status with family court judges and employees.
Use of the title for this purpose is prohibited by state law. Using the prestige of judicial office, or judicial title "to advance the pecuniary or personal interests of the judge or others" is illegal in California.
According to the California Judges Association: "A temporary judge may not include the fact of serving as a temporary judge in any law firm or business advertisement including a biography on a firm website. Canons 1, 2, 6D(9)(a)." On his website, Gregory Dwyer provides a biography that includes a section headed "Professional Association and Affiliations." The section includes a listing designating Dwyer as a "Pro Tem Judge in Sacramento County in Family Law."
Dwyer also is an officer of the Sacramento County Bar Association Family Law Executive Committee, known by the acronym "FLEC." Family court reform advocates have collected and catalogued evidence that FLEC acts effectively as a shadow government controlling virtually all aspects of court operations for the financial gain of attorney members of the Sacramento Bar Association Family Law Section. In addition to Dwyer, the other FLEC officers are Elaine Van Beveren, Fredrick Cohen, and Paula Salinger.
Dwyer's fellow officers on the Sacramento Bar Association Family Law Executive Committee have all been caught engaging in illegal or unethical conduct in family court proceedings. Executive Committee Chair Elaine Van Beveren, Vice Chair Fredrick (Rick) Cohen, Treasurer Paula Salinger and Secretary Greg Dwyer have been the subject of investigative reports by Sacramento Family Court News, an online, nonprofit journalism organization.
FLEC Treasurer Paula Salinger has been the subject of several Sacramento Family Law Court scandals. Salinger is a partner at the prominent Sacramento family law firm Woodruff, O'Hair, Posner & Salinger, Inc. The firm has been sued for legal malpractice by a former client who alleged more than $1 million in damages. Family court controversies involving Salinger include:
FLEC Vice Chair Rick Cohen has been involved in a number of controversies including:
FLEC Chair Elaine Van Beveren has been involved in several controversial family court incidents, including:
The recently released documentary film Divorce Corp portrays Sacramento Family Court as the most corrupt in the United States. The corruption is attributed to corruption and collusion betwen judge pro tem lawyers and full time judges of the court. For more about Sacramento Family Court corruption:
As a sworn temporary judge of Sacramento County Superior Court, attorney Gregory W. Dwyer is required by state law to take appropriate corrective action if he becomes aware of misconduct by other attorneys or judges. Like the rest of the judge pro tem lawyers he associates with, Dwyer has done nothing. Dwyer is, in fact, part of the problem.
