An update on my experience with estate lawyer Kim Whaley as detailed in my blog, “Kim Whaley Estate Lawyer Nightmare. Terrible Service, Predatory Billing” Published below on May 14, 2017.
Ms. Whaley has added to the costs and complexity of the litigation by suing me for defamation as a result of the article. Ms. Whaley seems to miss the point that the article is my opinion based on my experience of dealing with her. Truth is a defence.
The facts in that article are all subject of the original litigation between us and could have been presented in one forum and resolved. To me, it is further indication of her attitude toward dealing with me.
More telling, is the dishonourable dishonest vindictive and abusive attitudes she displayed towards me by filing a complaint against me with my Professional Body, The Law Society of Ontario. This in light of the fact that I never dealt with Ms. Whaley in my capacity as a lawyer. At all times I was her client.
The reason this is so disturbing is because the complaint is the same as her lawsuit against me for defamation. It includes her complaint about the conversation I recorded as a client, when I first spoke to her about my case.
When I advised her that I had made this recording, she threatened me in writing, to report me to the Law Society of Ontario if I used the recording.
I replied in writing, that even though I felt I had done nothing wrong as a client in recording the conversation in which she made representations she later backtraced upon, as a result of her threat, I agreed in writing not to use them.
I then received the letter from her then lawyer, Deborah Stephens, (Who I understand now works for her firm), asking for the recordings and agreeing that if I provided them, Ms. Whaley would not report me to the Law Society.
Well true to her treatment of me, after I provided a copy of the conversation, she reported me to the Law Society with respect to the recording. Exactly what she had agreed in writing not to do. Strangely enough, she identified her lawyer on the complaint to the Law Society as Valerie Edwards-LawPro lawyer. I was always under the impression that the organization that provides insurance to lawyers does so in defensive claims, not in prosecution of them. Although the lawyer being defended can retain the LawPro lawyer privately to act on their behalf, it somehow appears that her LawPro lawyer is acting in that capacity, other than in the defensive role with respect to her Law Society complaint.
This is further evidence of her dealings with me. Dishonest, dishonourable, vindictive, and unprofessional.
The above is the opinion and experience of the author as a litigant and a victim.
Pelosi and Schumer, and yes both of the Clintons have served the American people for several decades. America needs a change.
On November 9, 2016, the American people experienced one of the greatest failures in the history of democracy. GOP and Democratic voters alike turned their backs on the elite political ruling class of both parties. This was born of the frustration of watching their political system descend into a paralyzed and uncivil sideshow. It was that anger and that rejection that brought Donald Trump to power.
The danger in Donald Trump, is that he cares only about Donald Trump. The Russians were ahead long before they appeared to have a President of the United States that they could blackmail. With the fall of the Soviet Union, the West threw up their hands in victory and fell asleep. Putin divided Russia up amongst his friends. He then used Russian money to buy his way in to the upper echelons of the political and economic elite around the world. The Citizens United decision by the Republican Supreme Court, was the first nail in the coffin of American democracy. It has provided an unlimited source of untraceable money to buy American politicians.
Trump was just a continuation of the deterioration of America is a world leader. One of the worst things he has done is to appoint Cabinet Secretaries who all hold views in direct contradiction to the purpose and missions of their departments. They’re spending their time dismantling the strength and functionality of these departments. They are attacking and destroying the social and political gains that made America a beacon of freedom and liberty and hope and the leader of the free world.
The last chance for American democracy is for the Democrats to retake both houses of Congress. That will not happen with the already rejected, Pelosi and Schumer. They must step aside for the good of the party and the good of America. There are plenty of fresh young voices and leadership in the Democratic Party. They must come up with bold, practical and meaningful proposals and turn them into action.
If Pelosi and Schumer lead the Democrats into the midterms I fear they will again be rejected for the same reasons they failed before. This time the stakes are high. The survival of American democracy.
Trump was sent to Washington to shake things up. A reaction to the voters anger from both parties at the governing class.
Today he spoke at the United Nations. He did what no other president has done. He attacked America’s enemies. He said the things that many Americans felt needed to be said.
He has shaken up government. He has attacked the leadership of both parties and has admonished them quite accurately for their failures and lack of accomplishment. When the GOP wouldn’t cooperate and come through, he turned to the Democrats. He doesn’t have an ideology.
These are admirable accomplishments. One must however, remember that this is a lying, pathological, misogynist degenerate.
It is unfortunate that the electorate had no other choice but the governing class they rejected or a corrupt con man.
There’s a new dance sweeping the nation. It’s called the Donald Trump Trample. So far the White House staff, Departments of government, Congress, and Scotus are learning how it’s done.
First there’s the Trump Trample on racial and religious groups. From Mexicans to Muslims there’s enough disrespect and hate for all. His tacit support of the Nazis and white supremacists fit in with his concept of America.
Next he does the Trump Trample on individuals. Whether it’s Jeff Sessions, James Comey, the GOP leadership in Congress or the long list of departed staffers. No one but his family is spared. For now. Trump has no shame in publicly bullying and berating people.
Finally and more importantly he does the Trump Trample on the basic rights and freedoms that are the foundation of America. His war on the press has viciously attacked the First Amendment. The greatest and most pathological liar to ever sit in the Oval Office, wants to control the truth. He tacitly encourages violence and hate.
There’s no doubt that everybody’s afraid of the Trump Trample. He runs the country like a reality TV show. Create a fantasy world, crank up the drama and the tension and keep them entertained. He truly believes in his own superiority. Only he can decide what’s lawful or not. If you’re anywhere in government and you don’t fall in line you’re gone.
So far the Trump Trample has worked. He freely trashes institutions, individuals, and civil rights in the most base way built on pathological lies. He has succeeded in intimidating and frightening all around him. He will do the dance until he is recognized as the indispensable leader. His ego, personality disorders, and mental illness, will accept no less
