EXPOSE OF GREED AND INCOMPETENCE OF THE MEMBERS OF THE MICHIGAN BAR A$$OCIATION

This scam has been reported in other ripoffreports, however, the crooks are apparently paying someone to block the web links, as the addresses just churn and churn and dont open up. Kind of like Zahondic churning a case, just for billable hours and not properly dealing with the legal issues.

Attorneys and Judges who just play court as an racketeering and organized crime scam to convert funds.

1. Attorney Grievance Commission and Judicial Tenure Commission
Keep in mind the Attorney Grievance Commission under Robert Agacinski and his side-kick, Patrick McGlinn; and the Judicial Tenure Commission , under Paul Fischer were given this information, and determined there was no cause of action against those cited below:

2. Attorney Lorrie Zahodnic
Attorney Lorrie Zahodnic in a very simple probate case, threw a home with a viable quit claim deed into probate to procrastinate just to create billable hours. Zahodnic prepared multiple legal documents with errors, prepare unnecessary documents (property transfer affidavit) and charged for these documents.

When Zahodnic did not respond to status inquiries, she always used the same excuse that her secretary filed the documents and did leave them on her desk. Lorrie Zahodnic is a habitual liar. Zahodnic also recommended getting a court order to title the house which was just a lame brain billable hour technique.

Zahodnics procrastination and incorrect information increased the cost of probate. Then Judge James Nowicki ordered a mediation evaluation for the fee dispute. The crux of the matter was whether the Attorney Alan Polack prepared quit claim deed which was recordable, and Attorney Zahodnic stated it was not recordable due to incorrect margins. Without credibility, Attorney Polack agreed with Zahodnic that his own quit claim deed did not have the correct margins. However, both Zahodnic and Polack were both incorrect as the Register of Deeds did record the instrument and said there was nothing wrong with the margins.

3. Attorney Grievance Commission
An Attorney Grievance was filed against Lorrie Zahodnic and she was admonished for her incompetence and bogus billable hours. Then as an extortion plot for over $1300, Zahodnics attorney Glenn Gartling went to the Nowicki Probate court, named Zahodnic as a Plaintiff in an undisputed Probate case and petitioned for sanctions. As a partner-in-crime, Judge Nowicki said to Attorney Gartlilng can you do that? but then awarded the $1300 sanctions . Upon leaving the courtroom, Lorrie Zahodnic said to Glenn Gartling, ASK Her, ASK her Attorney Glenn Gartling then said if you drop the attorney grievance, we wont enter the order I said: absolutely not and paid the sanctions, as my integrity cant be bought.

Admonished by the Attorney Grievance Commission
April 26, 2002
Lorrie J. Zahodnic failed to diligently and expeditiously represent XXXXXXXs interest in the probate estate. Your conduct violated MCR 9.104 (A) (1) (4); and the Michigan Rules of Professional Cunduct, to wit: 1.3, 3.2; and 8.4 (a) and (c)

Therefore, Lorrie Zahodnic committed fraud and conversion of funds, and was aided and abetted by fellow members of the incestuous legal industry cartel, judges and attorneys to transfer assets.

4. Judge James Nowicki
In a bench trial in the James Nowicki court, regarding attorney fees, Lorrie Zahodnic lied and obfuscated numerous times to commit fraud upon the court.

Per the December 6, 2001 transcript, page 38
Zahodnic: Whether she had stock in three companies or with one company that had it invested in three companies, I had no knowledge of this.

Nowicki Court to Attorney Zahodnic: Lets not indulge in that. Lets try to get through this as quickly as possible, Counsel.


Judge Nowicki sent this fee dispute to Case Evaluation to Evaluators: Polack, Dean and Anderson:

5. Case Evaluation Attorneys, Alan Polack, Harvey Dean and Philip Anderson
There was a case evaluation Ordered by the Nowicki court regarding the fees Lorrie Zahodnic was charging for her procrastination, and defectively prepared legal documents and incorrect legal advice.

These case evaluator listed below were each paid $75 by both parties, so they each got $150 for incorrect legal determinations, not based upon law as a scam:
All three attorneys, Polack, Dean and Anderson agreed with Zahodnic that the Polack Quit Claim Deed had incorrect margins, however, the Register of Deeds recorded the deed and the AGC admonished Lorrie Zahodnic, so Polack, Dean and Anderson were accomplices of Zahodnics conversion by fraud. At this case evaluation, the attorney for Lorrie Zahodnic was Michael Sullivan of Collins Einhorn Farrell & Ulanoff PC.

Then there was a bench trial for attorney fees in the incompetent Nowicki court for the bogus attorney fees charged by Zahodnic for her procrastination, incorrect legal advice, legal documents with errors, etc.

Therefore, Lorrie Zahodnic committed fraud and conversion of funds, and was aided and abetted by fellow members of the incestuous legal industry cartel.

6. Fee Dispute Bench Trial in the Nowicki Court transcripts pages 38 - 54
In a bench trial in the James Nowicki court, regarding attorney fees, Lorrie Zahodnic lied and obfuscated numerous times to commit fraud upon the court.

Per the December 6, 2001 transcript, page 38
Zahodnic: Whether she had stock in three companies or with one company that had it invested in three companies, I had no knowledge of this.

Nowicki Court to Attorney Zahodnic: Lets not indulge in that. Lets try to get through this as quickly as possible, Counsel. [stupid Judge Nowicki also admonished Zahodnic but ruled in her favor without basis]

Page 46:
Personal Representative: So there are five attorneys involved. And to refresh your (the courts) memory, Ive been before you before, having to take days off from work, to accommodate this attorneys schedule because she going on a trip with a youth group, and whatever she to Hawaii.

7. Lorrie Zahodnics habitual trips causing delays in cases:
[Note: a google search of Lorrie Zahodnic revealed these trips taken by Attorney Lorrie Zahodnic during the course of events: (copy and paste links if clicking doesnt work) (obviously Zahodnic routinely writes glowing letters to get discounts on further trips. 7 Trips within a short period of time and they were all wonderful. Makes you wonder when Zahodnic has time to represent clients.)

and what I/ve had to deal with this attorney, the secretary telling me to leave files in the hallway.

Page 54:
Attorney Glen Gartling: and, of course, additionally, its her right to not take the advice of counsel.
[editorial comment: what the hell do you pay an attorney for, if not to take their legal advice.]

9. EXTORTION by Attorney Glenn Gartling and Lorrie Zahodnic with Hon. James Nowicki as accomplice:
In an undated Motion for Mediation Sanctions submitted by Attorney Glenn Gartling where bogusly names Lorrie Zahodnic Attorney of record in a probate matter as Plaintiff and relies on a civil court rule for sanctions NOT a Probate court rule, and Judge Nowicki grants sanctions with the comment: Can you do this. Then outside the Nowicki Courtroom, Lorrie Zahodnic tells her attorney Gartling, ASK HER, ASK HER, and then Glenn Gartling states as extortion and black mail: We wont enter the order for sanctions, if you will drop the attorney grievance against Ms. Zahodnic.

10. Legal Malpractice Case in the Hon. Michael Maceroni Court Sterling Heights.
Lorrie Zahodnic was represented by David C Anderson


Hon. Michael Maceroni allowed

Plaintiffs Attorneys Paul Nicoletti and Michael Hogan to withdraw, leaving Plaintiff unrepresented in violation of her Constitutional Rights to Due Process.


Judge Michael Maceroni (a.k.a. Sterling Heights Maceroni at the Italian American Bar A$$, often referred to as the mafia).

Attorney David C. Anderson was allowed to subpoena teacher plaintiffs work records as harassment, when both Maceroni and Anderson should have known there were available under FOIA. Then as another harassment, Judge Maceroni allowed Anderson to reopen discovery to conduct depositions, where then was no reason other than to prolong the case and create billable hours that the depositions could not have occurred earlier. Then, Plaintiffs depositions kept being rescheduled at the last moment, and were finally scheduled after the 2nd discovery phase had expired. Then the deposition occurred 2 hours late because David Anderson forgot to schedule a court reporter. All this was just harassment, and without credibility David Anderson is now on the board of the Oakland County Bar Association. http://www.ocba.org/Board-of-Directors.id.5.htm

11.Then came the next case evaluation, with Attorneys Anthony Urbani, Roger Trim, Robert Leithauser

where again each attorney was paid $150 to lie and not follow law in order to protect incompetent attorney Zahodnic to transfer more assets to the legal industry cartel.

[Note: There was a chance encounter with Attorney Urbani at the Macomb County Court. Mr. Urbani said with conceit: I cant talk now, I have a really big case. However, as a spectator in the courtroom Mr. Urbani was seen responding to a typical motion just to create billable hours and was probably on the record less than one minute, so much for the really big case.

At a Case Evaluation in the legal malpractice case against Lorrie Zahodnic , these 3 incompetent attorneys denied any award to Plaintiff for Defendant Attorney Lorrie Zahodnics malpractice, even with an AGC admonishment, and they foolishly and incorrectly cited res judicata as the reason. However, if Urbani, Trim and Leithauser had looked at the file, Judge Maceroni already ruled against res judicata when Attorney Anderson had a Motion to dismiss the case based on the same false argument because a fee dispute is not the same as legal malpractice

Judge Maceroni, while Plaintiffs was in Pro Per after Maceroni let her attorneys withdraw leaving her without counsel, while there was pending Motion for Summary Judgment against Attorney Zahodnic, Judge Maceroni without hearing Plaintiffis motion, dismissed the malpractice case against Lorrie Zahodnic when Plaintiff was not served notice of the Hearing, and Attorney David Anderson said on the record, that he mailed the notice, but did not provide proof of service and Plaintiff was never notified of the hearing.
