Under NO circumstances should ANYONE EVER retain attorneys Susan J. Kohlmann, AnnaMarie A. Van Hoesen, or Marina Jenkins of Jenner & Block law firm. Far from helping my claim, they in fact harmed it as they never had any intention of pursuing it from the outset. By so doing they intentionally and with malice deceived me and took advantage of my trust and faith in their written agreement and verbal assurances. 

In 2014, I appealed to internationally-known intellectual property firm Jenner & Block (a regular Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts-NY contributor, Copyright Alliance Legal Advisor Board volunteer member, and “Top IP Litigation of 2014,” according to TK) for help with my copyright infringement claim. Ms. Kohlmann agreed to take my claim on a pro bono basis, then sat on her hands for four months, whereupon she wrote one letter; three months later she wrote a second one; and three months after that she dumped my claim by refusing to respond to my emails and vmails.

How do I know she never had any intention of pursuing my claim? Because the two letters from the infringing publisher were notably weak--contradicting each other, the infringing author’s statements in published interviews, and other external facts--all of which added up to an abundance of admissible evidence to file my claim. But she failed to do so without giving ANY reason. Because in fact there WAS no reason other than the prohibitive cost of such a suit. 

By contacting the publisher, then refusing to file a claim she put into motion the tolling of the three-year statute of limitations, which slammed a deadline on it--then she proceeded to waste 11 months of those three years, or one-third, by doing nothing. By contacting the publisher she in fact caused irreparable harm to my claim.                    

Ms. Kohlmann used me and my claim to gratify her ego and career by smugly patting herself on the back and earning points with her firm by mentoring junior associates Ms. Van Hoesen and Ms. Jenkins. That she stabbed me in the back by taking advantage of an already egregiously abused victim was unconscionable, but that none of them warned me that they could renege on our written agreement by abandoning my claim without giving ANY reason is nothing less than unforgivable.

 Under NO circumstances should you EVER retain any of them for ANY reason!
