Family Law Think Tank on Serene Teffaha from Advocate Me

May be an image of 2 people and textSerene Teffaha, principal solicitor at law firm, Advocate Me, allegedly in closed court submissions during a matter before the magistrates court in Brisbane, accused the Family Court and its judiciary and police of enabling abuse of a child.

Ms Teffaha has taken a few jabs at the Family Court at rallies in Melbourne. On at least one occasion she has labelled the court as "corrupt".

Now the Victorian Legal Services Board has cancelled her practising certificate and she is unable to practise law. The board has not said what led to the cancellation. Effectively, she cannot operate her business and has no way to support herself.

Brisbane magistrate, Anthony Gett referred Ms Teffaha to Victoria's Legal Services Commission over submissions in court that he said “may be prejudicial to or diminish the public confidence in the administration of justice”.

It's not the first time that someone has called the Family Court a bad name.

Emily Brown the Public Guardian Battery Hen

Image result for battery henThe below-article only mildly touches on the havoc this wretched woman, solicitor, Heidi Muggenthaler wreaks on the lives of those she infects.  She's based in Sydney and previously served on IDRS (Intellectual Disability Rights Service), a community legal centre advocating for rights for the disabled.  What better way to find more victims (clients), then purporting to help those who most need it pro-bono?  She's no unlike other solicitors who frequently sell their sole for a few more dollars, but this woman has absolutely obliterated the lives of two lovely people, my friend Emily Brown and her mother Julie Brown.

Emily Brown was falsely removed by NSW child protection in 1998 because the caseworkers at the time DID NOT like Julie.  Julie might not be everyones cup of tea, but she was a good mum and the perfect person to be raising her daughter who is extremely intelligent and has mild autism, Emily.  Throughout the first few years that Julie and Emily were involved with the state, caseworkers stole jewellery and money from Julie's home in Sydney, cancelled services for her involving housing and obtaining assistance in moving to another property.

Celebrated lawyer adds himself to client’s will

Image result for Dino De MarchiA renowned lawyer has been caught inserting himself into a client’s will, standing to get a fifth of her estate, but has not been suspended from practicing.

According to a Herald Sun report, Dino De Marchi, a Vietnam War veteran who was feted by former Governor-general Dame Quentin Bryce at Government House in 2010, has pleaded guilty of including his name as a “significant beneficiary” of the will of client Lidia Toffolon. The client is said to have visited De Marchi’s law office in 2013 to have a new will prepared, and later instructed the lawyer to include himself as beneficiary.

Even after a solicitor employed by De Marchi told him the act would be a breach of rules, the lawyer did not cease to act for the client. Instead, he ordered his law firm and its address to be deleted from the cover page of the will.

De Marchi is said to have then taken the client to another lawyer, Carl Soccio ...

Lawyer jailed for theft of $620,000

A TRUSTED Geelong solicitor who stole more than $620,000 from clients over a decade has been sentenced to a maximum of five years' jail.

Kenneth Edward Hampson, 60, began removing money from his clients' trust accounts for his own use in May 1992 following the downfall of the Pyramid Building Society.

Sydney's dirtiest lawyer John Meehan of Campbelltown continues blackmail with support of OLSC

John Paul Meehan, Campbelltown (solicitor currently representing the NSW Department of Community Services in Care Proceedings), is now threatening clients that he is "applying to the court to have costs awarded against" parents of children - whom he participated in the removal of.

So now, when parents ultimately fight to the end to have their children restored - imparticular in cases where the magistrates including former President of the Children's Court (Judge Mark Marien), has continually ordered the return of  the children - he (John Meehan) will threaten that "if you do not with draw your case of trying to have your stolen children returned", he will suck up to the magistrate and have them order court costs against you - even if you are in receipt of Legal Aid funding.  He also tells parents that the money they owe "will be deducted from their Centrelink payments".

Newest lawyer discovered trafficking children for financial gain

Hume Legal - Joanna Jarasevic - picked up another easy score, that over a few months makes ten thousand dollars cash, and cashed right in.  Unfortunately this lawyer was not working for the department at the time, and had no right to deliberately tank her clients case which ultimately ended up with the kids sent to foster care till they're eighteen.  The case was simple, clear cut and the biggest point on her side, was the Emergency Order for removal of the kids was not only unlawful - it was maladministration at best and corruption at worst.

The cow  should have had this case dismissed. Instead she did nothing in almost a month. Not one affidavit.  All she did was collude with the department, and used her scare tactics saying "there's heaps of evidence".  Our auditors concluded the complete opposite, and to tell her clients to "consent to establishment", was giving up the battle before it started.  She had a fantastic opportunity to put some overreaching lazy caseworkers in place and on the spot, and to save other families the same fate she sentenced this family to.  But that would have meant doing more work, and getting paid less money in the long run.  As most legal aid lawyers state "they don't get paid enough money to do affidavits".  For christ sake, how can parents defend themselves when their own solicitors roll over because it's more financially viable.

Regarding the allegations - there wasn't a thing that couldn't be explained and most of their [FACS] dribble was lies. So much, it would make your toes curl, believe me.  Fucking dirty child trafficking mutts. NB: This mutt was given enough notice that her clients were now informed of what happens when u CONSENT TO ESTABLISHMENT. They told her No. And she lied in court and said they said yes, making docs not have to even prove one of their single reprehensible lies. They make me sick. The whole lot of them.

"Dennis Chapman -The Dog that needs to learn to SIT"

Dennis Chapman, solicitor at Gosford, is at it again, harassing his former clients.  This solicitor is well known for providing piss poor legal service and even stooping as low as leaving his clients without representation once they are finally able to get their matter heard in supreme court.  This time he has harassed clients whilst they were walking down their own street.  This man needs to be banned from an legal practise at all. 

Family Law Web Guide on the net, also has a few articles on corrupt solicitors such as Dennis Chapman, and alecomm is currently investigating to just what extent this solicitor stoops.

Mr Chapman, once again, shame on you.  It was only a few weeks ago that he represented both a mother and the department of community services at Woy Woy local court, obviously not acting in the best interest of the mother, and when we comlained about it, he walked into the Woy Woy Courts, yet again and the judge issued him a gag order to prevent the mother talking any further about the matter - to anybody including her own family.

"Who Says Man Can't Do TWO Things At Once! - Dennis Chapman Can!"

Talk about Talented - this man successfully represented both the Department of Community Services and their Client Victim today in Woy Woy Children's Court.  Apparently both had rang to ask for his representation in court for the said case, and he accepted.

Not only that, the magistrate didn't seem to have any issues with this given that DOCs wanted an adjournment - as stated by Dennis Chapman, and the Victim Client Mother whom had just had her baby stolen by these government approved child traffickers, did not.

How is this possible with no questions by the magistrate about the behaviour of this solicitor.  Given he is going to be paid by the state twice, one for each representation, and that you cannot legally represent both parties, he even had the audacity to complain, yet again, about Alecomm.

Well good on you Dennis, and good on you for giving back those files you held after dropping your last victim client on the morning of her proceedings in supreme court and stuffing her up completely.

YOU ARE A TRUE LEGEND DENNIS CHAPMAN.

"Dennis Chapman. Solicitor at Gosford on the Central Coast in NSW, you must be so proud of yourself"

This legal flop came to the attention of Alecomm a month or two ago after he pulled the pin on the representation of his client --- the morning of that clients day in Supreme Court.  How totally dispicable.  He did this saying he was under orders by his barrister, but last time i checked, you, Dennis Chapman, take orders from your client.  So what happened?  Didn't you have the cohuna's to actually deal with the case once the poor victim mother finally got past the pathetic childrens courts and into the supreme?

Are you so used to sitting on your fat arse and getting paid your legal aid dosh for doing nothing that you can't actually remember how to defend an innocent woman and child anymore???  Shame on you.

Not only that, this Dennis Chapman is absolutely refusing to hand over all the paperwork relating to the matter to the mother, and her next Supreme Court case is next week.  He is sayng that he has every right to hold onto the information for seven years.  What the fuck do you want that information for Dennis, apart from to screw your ex-client just that little bit more by fucking her next court case???

Alecomm's recommendations about this solicitor is stay as far away from his as possible.  Even after he lets you down he will still try and interfere and ruin your life that little bit more.  And for those of you who aren't sure of the in's and outs of this case, its another Department of Child Trafficking Services, I mean Community Services, punishing a child who's mother was beaten by his father.  In lamens terms instead of DOCs and the police getting of their lazy arses and doing something about the perpetrator of the crimes, DOCs just re-victimise the woman and take her kids instead.

We do live in a charming world, don't we???

* Alecomm will take this notice down upon the mother receiving the documents this week.  Should the documents arrive thereafter, this article will be a permanent fixture on alecomms walls of shame.  Your choice Dennis and the solution is simple - hand over the file!

"Crown solicitor for DoCS, Michelle England caught breaking the law again!"

Congratulations Michelle England for being today's winner on Sydney Lawyers Asshole of the Day!  You have been nominated several times for the award, and after a fantastic performance in the Supreme Court last week, you have won this amazing opportunity!

First of all, we would like to tell you a little bit about our contestant Michelle.  She successfully argued her matter first in the Supreme Court in Sydney before Judge Balls as the Respondent.  A fantastic win, and she almost won another case also in the Supreme Court that wasn't even being argued that day!  Talk about saving the tax-payers money Michelle, what a fine legal example you are.

Then [she] successfully won a case against a grandmother fighting to have contact with her grandchild in the care of the "System", after being allowed to argue that the grandmother - who is also in a wheelchair - was not a suitable person to be having contact with her grandchild because she attended a protest.  Great going Michelle, you're certainly setting the style for ethical legal arguments in the NSW Courts.
