Wilson Elser Moskowitz Edelman’s Patrick Kelly Elected State Bar of California President as Kreindler & Kreindler’s Gretchen Nelson (Ex-Business Partner of Fraudster Susan Friery AKA Susan Mowbray) Elected Treasurer

Embattled president of the State Bar of California –  Jon B. Streeter of Keker & Van Nest — will soon retire his position. 

Patrick M. Kelly, a partner at Wilson Elser Moskowitz Edelman & Dicker LLP, was elected as president of the State Bar of California. In addition, under a new governance structure that took effect this year Gretchen Nelson, 58, of Los Angeles, was elected treasurer.

Upon learning of his election as president, Kelly Stated: ““We are in a severe economic crisis that threatens our courts, other institutions of government, and even this Bar. Perhaps more troubling, there is an ever growing lack of public trust in our institutions of government, our legal system and our lawyers.” he said in his candidate statement. “The challenges we face also create a tremendous opportunity that calls for the very best in leadership and commitment to service each of us can bring,” California Bar Journal reports.

According to Wilson Elser, Patrick Kelly is a member of its executive committee and is regional managing partner of the firm’s Western region and Los Angeles office. He is a veteran trial lawyer who focuses his practice on advising and representing insurance carriers in coverage matters and defending individuals and companies in high-stakes professional liability and commercial cases. His practice also encompasses insurance bad faith, insurance coverage, product liability, premises liability, employment litigation, ski resort liability and railroad liability matters. He has particular experience with class actions involving directors and officers (D&O) liability, product liability, employment and consumer fraud claims.

Pat has tried numerous cases to verdict and has briefed and argued dozens of appeals. He is an accomplished negotiator who seeks an economical and satisfactory resolution to disputes whenever possible. When a matter does proceed to trial, he draws upon his strong organizational and oral advocacy skills to achieve the best possible outcome for his clients. Pat is a fellow of the prestigious International Academy of Trial Lawyers.

Among his many leadership roles, Pat was elected by his peers to serve as president of the Los Angeles County Bar Association. He also was appointed by the Governor of California to serve as one of 11 members of the Commission on Judicial Performance, which disciplines California state judges and has the power to remove them from the bench. In his legal practice and his leadership positions, Pat brings a sincere commitment to improving the organization and delivering with hard work. He has achieved success as a litigator and a manager by respecting the position of his colleagues, clients and adversaries and treating their needs with importance and competence.

Kelly’s regularly scheduled election coincided with the aftermath of revelations concerning CaliforniaALL – Obama for America involving MoFo’s James Brosnahan, USDOJ’s Tony West, Keker & Van Nest’s Chris Young, Ambassador Jeffrey Bleich, Kamala Harris, Annette Carnegie, and Ruthe Catolico Ashley.

As matters presently stand, it appears that in 2008 Morrison & Foerster attorneys James Brosnahan (self-proclaimed “mastermind behind the Democratic Party.), Tony West (Barack Obama’s Chair of California Finance Committee), Chris Young (“Obama for America” Northern California Deputy Finance Director) and Annette Carnegie (former director with the California Bar Foundation) in conjunction with Kamala Harris (Co-Chair, Obama for America ; member of CaliforniaALL), Jeffrey Bleich (president of the State Bar of California, director with the California Bar Foundation, founding member and Chair of Barack Obama’s National Finance Committee) may have executed a sophisticated financial scheme to misuse all or part of the “hush-hush” $780,000.00 originating from the California Bar Foundation by improperly transferring the money to Barack Obama’s coffers via a separate foundation created ad hoc by MoFo’s Susan Mac Cormac, CaliforniaALL.

Shrimpscam’s Gwen Moore, Howard Dickstein’s Spouse, Proxies of Democratic Party Operatives John Keker /Joe Cotchett, Silk-Mafia Godfather, Fraudster Susan Friery’s Ex Partner Are All Set to Vote on New State Bar of California President Amid Controversy

Members of the State Bar of California Board of Trustees (formerly known as the Board of Governors) will be casting ballots today to elect a new State Bar of California president.

According to California Bar Journal, the Board of Trustees will vote by secret ballot to determine whether Wells Lyman, Patrick Kelly or Loren Kieve will succeed Jon Streeter as president.

“There were so many problems when I was on the board that first year,” said Lyman, a past president of the San Diego County and Foothills bar associations who is in his third year on the Board of Trustees. “I’ve just seen the board move towards such progress that I want to be involved in it and see it through.”

“Shakedown Artist” Gwen Moore of Shrimpscam ; Jeannine English — wife of controversial gambling attorney and Democratic Party operative Howard Dickstein; “Gay Godfather” Dennis Mangers; Democratic Party operative Joseph Lawrence Dunn (aka Joe Dunn) of Voice of OC; Nancy Fineman — proxy of Democratic party operative Joe Cotchett; Gretchen Nelson of Kreindler & Kreindler — former business partner of fraudster Susan Friery; and Jon Streeter, President of the California State Bar Board of Governors and proxy of Democratic Party operative John Keker are among twenty-one members eligible to vote.

The casting of ballots comes on the heels of growing controversy surrounding embattled Streeter and attorney Chris Young — both of Keker & Van Nest. 

As public service to the community, TLR publishes an ethics complaint YR  recently submitted naming John Keker, Jon Streeter and Chris Young, below:

 

RE: ETHICS COMPLAINT AGAINST STATE BAR OF CALIFORNIA MEMBERS CHRIS YOUNG ( # 239518) ; JON STREETER (#101970) ; JOHN KEKER (# 49092)

Dear Ms. Kim:

Please register a formal ethics complaint against Keker & Van Nest attorneys Chris Young (# 239518), Jon Streeter ( # 101970), and John Keker (# 49092) for conspiring to defraud myself and others through a failed attempt to conceal attorney Chris Young’s current employment with Keker & Van Nest.

Not surprisingly, just as I managed to unearth the potential involvement of Tony West in the scheme known as CaliforniaALL, respondents quickly arranged for the removal of Young’s profile from the web site of Keker & Van Nest (KVN.COM). Even to date, official records of The State Bar of California reflect that Chris Young is associated with Keker & Van Nest. However, this representation is not in agreement with misleading records found on KVN.COM.

Unfortunately, as matters presently stand, it appears that in 2008 Morrison & Foerster attorneys James Brosnahan (self-proclaimed “mastermind behind the Democratic Party.), Tony West (Barack Obama’s Chair of California Finance Committee), Chris Young (“Obama for America” Northern California Deputy Finance Director) and Annette Carnegie (former director with the California Bar Foundation) in conjunction with Kamala Harris (Co-Chair, Obama for America ; member of CaliforniaALL) , Jeffrey Bleich (president of the State Bar of California, director with the California Bar Foundation, founding member and Chair of Barack Obama’s National Finance Committee) may have executed a sophisticated financial scheme to misuse all or part of the “hush-hush” $780,000.00 originating from the California Bar Foundation by improperly transferring the money to Barack Obama’s coffers via a separate foundation created ad hoc by Susan Mac Cormac of Morrison & Foerster, CaliforniaALL.

In seeking to conceal Young’s present association with Keker & Van Nest, respondents were clearly motivated by the totality of the circumstances surrounding Young, especially around 2007-8. Specifically, similar to Tony West, Mr. Young was associated with Morrison & Foerster, as well as serving as Obama for America, Northern California Deputy Finance Director.

In addition, respondents’ zeal in seeking to conceal Young’s present association with Keker & Van Nest was also motivated by the totality of the circumstances surrounding a conspiracy by which members of the State Bar of California Board of Governors (including president Streeter) knowingly agreed to press false criminal charges against me with the Yolo County District Attorney alleging, among others, that an ethics complaint I had filed (dealing with CaliforniaALL – UC Davis law student Sara Granda) was “false and malicious.”

Since at the time members of the board of governors conspired to knowingly file false criminal charges (around January of 2012), they were operating under the assumption that my inquiry into CaliforniaALL was headed in the wrong direction (which it was), the identity and past actions of Chris Young were irrelevant. As a matter of fact, I myself was unaware of Chris Young, or his past involvements.

However, once I managed to unearth the identity of Tony West, respondents and members of the Board of Governors sought to further mislead myself and others in hope none would be able to unearth the identity of Young, including his past involvement with Morrison & Foerster (and by extension, CaliforniaALL) , his involvement with Obama for America, his current association with Keker & Van Nest, as well as his association with Jon Streeter (also a 2008 “bundler” for Obama for America). As such, Young’s profile was abruptly removed from KVN.COM for the additional purpose of covering-up members of the Board of Governors’ own misconduct.

In summary, respondents’ conspiracy to defraud by seeking to conceal Young’s association with Keker & Van Nest was motivated by:

1. An overall desire by Keker & Van Nest and respondents to suppress the truth concerning Young’s past involvement with Obama for America, Morrison & Foerster, and CaliforniaALL. Including , but not limited to, Jon Streeter own potential misconduct as “bundler” for Obama for America.

2. A specific desire by respondent Streeter and members of the Board of Governors to suppress the truth in order to cover-up their own misconduct.

Please note that pursuant to specific instructions and representations made by your office, this complaint is submitted through the use of electronic mail. In the event a new policy was implemented, please let me know ASAP, that I shall submit the complaint through the use of traditional mail.

Thank you for your time.

Gretchen M. Nelson is a 1983 graduate of Georgetown University Law School. She received her B.A. degree from Smith College in 1976. She was admitted to the State Bar of California in January 1984. She is a member of the Board of Governors of the Consumer Attorneys of Los Angeles. She is a past Chair of the Litigation Section of the Los Angeles County Bar Association (“LACBA”) and is presently the President-Elect of that association. Her term as President of LACBA will commence on July 1, 2007.

Following law school, she practiced for several years with the law firm of Morgan, Wenzel McNicholas. In August 1988, she joined the law firm of Corinblit Seltzer, a Professional Corporation, where she concentrated her practice in the prosecution of complex business litigation, with a strong emphasis on antitrust and securities class action cases. In February 1998, Ms. Nelson formed her own law firm where she devoted her practice to the litigation of complex class action cases, involving securities, antitrust, employment and consumer claims as well as other litigation on behalf of individuals and small businesses. In 2003, Ms. Nelson joined the law firm of Kreindler &Kreindler LLP when it opened the firm’s first California office located in Los Angeles. She continues to practice in the area of complex class action litigation.

Ms. Nelson has lectured on class and class-related litigation issues for the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles, the Association of Trial Lawyers, the Practicing Law Institute, the National Business Institute and Mealeys. She has published articles in the Advocate and the Forum and the American Bar Associations TIPS magazine The Brief on class and other issues.

A list of representative cases, among others, in which Ms. Nelson has had a substantial role is appended hereto.

Representative Cases

(1) In re ZZZZ Best Securities Litigation, Master File No. CV 87-3574 RSWL(Bx) (C.D. Cal.). Corinblit & Selzer was appointed by the Los Angeles federal court as sole lead counsel to represent the plaintiff class of defrauded securities purchasers. The ZZZZ Best fraud was described by the United States Attorney for the Central District of California as “the most massive and elaborate securities fraud perpetrated on the West Coast in over a decade.” In the consolidated class action cases, the court issued several important published rulings sustaining plaintiffs’ claims. See, e.g., In re ZZZZ Best Securities Litigation, 864 F.Supp. 960 (C.D. Cal. 1994); and [1990 Transfer Binder] Fed.Sec.L.Rep. (CCH) ¶95,416 (C.D. Cal. 1990). The case was settled for approximately $40 million in cash.

(2) In re Taxable Municipal Bond Securities Litigation, MDL No. 863 (D. La.). Corinblit & Seltzer was among four firms selected for a leadership role in this consolidated multi-district litigation brought on behalf of defrauded securities purchasers of municipal bonds. After five years of litigation, the case was settled for approximately $110 million in cash.

(3) Raymark Industries, Inc. v. Stemple, No. 88-l0l4-K (D. Kan.). Corinblit & Seltzer defended an attorney in an action brought under the RICO statute and state law for alleged fraud in connection with the settlement of a class action case. The firm was successful in obtaining an injunction restraining the prosecution of twelve related actions filed by the plaintiff in federal courts located throughout the United States. After several years of litigation, the case was settled and dismissed.

(4) Biben v. Card, No. 84-0844-CV-W-6 (W.D. Mo.). Corinblit & Seltzer served as co-lead counsel for plaintiffs in these consolidated securities fraud class action cases. The plaintiffs achieved substantial pretrial victories, including establishing the sufficiency of their claims under the federal securities laws against the director, accountant and attorney defendants in that case and in defeating motions for summary judgment by the insurance carriers for certain individual defendants. The case was settled for approximately $12 million in cash.

(5) Sanwa Bank California v. Facciani, No. CA001132 (L.A. Sup. Ct.) Corinblit & Seltzer was counsel (together with two other plaintiffs’ firms) for a class of investors in this state court securities case and a companion federal case in which settlements totaling approximately $26 million were obtained on behalf of the investors.

(6) Schneider v. Traweek, No. CV 88-0905 RG(Kx) (C.D. Cal.). Corinblit & Seltzer was sole counsel for the plaintiff class consisting of thousands of investors in eight limited partnerships. In granting plaintiffs’ motion for class certification, the court determined that “[t]he qualifications of Plaintiffs’ counsel are not at issue, since the Defendants conceded at oral argument that no one questions the ability of the law firm of Corinblit & Seltzer to prosecute this action on behalf of the proposed class.” Schneider v. Traweek, [1990 Transfer Binder] Fed.Sec.L.Rep. (CCH) ¶95,419 at 97,113 (C.D. Cal. 1990). The case was settled for in excess of $14 million. Other reported decisions in the case can be found at Schneider v. Traweek, [1990 Transfer Binder] Fed.Sec.L.Rep. (CCH) ¶ 95,507 (C.D. Cal. 1990).

(7) In re Domestic Air Transportation Antitrust Litigation, Master File No. 1:90-cv-2485 MHS. Corinblit & Seltzer was appointed by the Atlanta federal court to serve on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee. The litigation consisted of more than fifty consolidated antitrust class actions. The case was settled for $50 million in cash and discount travel certificates with a face value of $408 million, which the Atlanta federal court valued as being worth approximately $305 million.

(8) Pinto v. Birr Wilson & Co., Inc., No. CA001058 (L.A. Co. Sup. Ct.). Corinblit & Seltzer were sole counsel for a class of municipal bondholders who had been allegedly defrauded. The case was settled for approximately $1.4 million in cash and approved by the Los Angeles Superior Court.

(9) Slaven, et al. v. BP America, Inc., et al., No. CV-90-0705 RJK(JRx) (C.D. Cal.).

Issues relating to plaintiffs fee application were appealed to the Court of Appeal and resulted in a published opinion affirming the fee award but remanding for further findings. See Godinez v.

Fraudster Susan Friery (former business partner of Kreindler & Kreindler’s Gretchen Nelson) Alleged New Name — Susan Mowbray

Kreindler & Kreindler’s Susan Friery has been suspended for only two-year for posing as physician by Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court (TLR Note: See below)

An attorney who trained to be a morgue technician has been suspended from practice for misrepresenting herself as an Ivy-league-educated physician.

Susan Friery, a former partner with New York-based plaintiffs law firm Kreindler & Kreindler, repeatedly told clients, colleagues, and opposing counsel that she had a medical degree from Columbia University, according to a decision from the Supreme Judicial Court for Suffolk County in Massachusetts ordering the suspension.

Complete article see @:
http://newsandinsight.thomsonreuters.com/Legal/News/2012/02_-_February/Attorn…

TLR Note:
Susan Friery joined the firm of Kreindler & Kreindler LLP in 1987, and “graduated” from Columbia medical school in 1988. “Dr.” Friery graduated from New York Law School in 1993. She is also a member of the bar in Washington D.C.

As such, it is clear that the firm was negligent by failing to verify the existence of a medical license.

The two-year suspension is highly suspicious, and is otherwise inconsistent with the proper administration of justice.

Hence, TLR will consider advancing a separate complaint against Friery with the bar of Washington D. C.

Fraudster Susan Friery’s biography as was posted on Kreindler & Kreindler’s website

Susan Friery, M.D.

Partner

Litigation, Negligence, Medical Malpractice, Personal Injury, Products Liability

Susan Friery joined the firm of Kreindler & Kreindler LLP in 1987 as a medical consultant, became a senior associate and is now a partner at the firm. She focuses in general tort, medical malpractice, product liability and aviation litigation.

Dr. Friery is a 1983 cum laude graduate of Canisius College, where she received the National Bios award for research in benzene toxicity while simultaneously pursuing her career as a principal dancer and soloist with the Empire State Ballet Theater and as guest soloist for the Canadian National Ballet and the American Ballet Theater. She received her medical degree from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University in 1988 where she graduated in the top one percent of her class. She has special training in forensic pathology and has worked at Children’s Hospital in Buffalo, New York, Babies Hospital at Columbia Presbyterian in New York City, and the New York City’s Medical Examiner’s Office. She has served as an advisor and worked for the American Red Cross, the National Kidney Foundation and the National Disaster Medical Response Teams. She also served as an editor for numerous medical journals, including the Pediatric Pathology and the Journal of Pediatrics.

Dr. Friery graduated from New York Law School in 1993. Since then she has been able to employ her unique skill set – medical and legal – to benefit Kreindler and Kreindler LLP clients.

At Kreindler, Dr. Friery has been involved in litigating medical malpractice, negligence, aviation, negligence and product liability cases. Recently, she had an important role in obtaining the highest state verdict in a non-dependent personal injury case, Ruby v. Budget Rent a Car, which was upheld on appeal.

Dr. Friery is committed to community work. She volunteers as a patient advocate, intensivist and doctor of Internal Medicine in the free clinics at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, New York Presbyterian Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, and the Veteran’s Hospital in Boston. She frequently is a guest speaker at medical conventions and hospital training programs regarding patient advocacy and legal-medical ramifications of patient care. She guest lectured at Harvard Medical School on The Power of Apology: Evolving Concepts in Handling Medical Errors and the Aftermath.

Additionally, Dr. Friery is active in several bar associations including American Trial Lawyers Association, where she is a member of the aviation, product liability and medical malpractice sections, and assists the finance committee in raising funds for public education and awareness. She is also a member of the American Bar Association, the Massachusetts Bar Association and the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys, where she serves as Non-Regional Governor.

Dr. Friery is admitted to the bars of Massachusetts and Washington, DC, the U.S. District Court for Massachusetts and has been admitted pro hoc vice in numerous state and federal Courts throughout the United States.

Dr. Susan Friery Elected Law Partner At Kreindler & Kreindler LLP

NEW YORK, Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ — Kreindler & Kreindler LLP, one of the nation’s leading plaintiff law firms, announced today the election of Dr. Susan Friery as a partner. Dr. Friery, previously an associate in the firm’s New York and Boston offices, is a Columbia University-trained medical doctor. She joined the firm in 1987 as a medical consultant, and focuses on general tort, medical malpractice, product liability and aviation litigation.

(Photo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20091211/DC24546)

Dr. Friery is one of only an estimated 2,500 medical doctor/attorneys in the nation, of which less than 100 are representing the rights of victims and their families at plaintiff law firms. Over the last 17 years Dr. Friery has brought her combined legal and medical expertise and skills to bear on hundreds of death and injury cases handled by Kreindler, the nation’s preeminent aviation law firm.

“Susan is an extraordinary attorney with a perspective few can boast,” said firm partner James P. Kreindler. “She understands the intricacies of our nation’s complex healthcare system, is an expert at analyzing victims’ injuries and causes of death, and recognizes how to assess the types and cost of care injured parties will face in their lifetimes. Susan is a terrific asset to the firm and we’re pleased to welcome her into our partnership.”

Dr. Friery works on dozens of the firm’s cases at any one time, and screens hundreds of other inquiries from prospective clients the firm receives each year. “Many of our clients do not have substantial financial means,” said Dr. Friery. “They suffer lifelong, catastrophic injury and face costly medical challenges resulting from the negligence of others. I’m particularly concerned with determining what kind of medical care they will need for the rest of their lives, and ensuring a medically-safe living environment for them. Unfortunately, it is too easy to get lost in the healthcare system, or to be compensated only for short-term needs without the long-term vision of the medical necessities and pain and suffering victims often face. We strive to ensure that doesn’t happen to our clients.”

Dr. Friery plays a substantial role in the injury, death and medical negligence cases of the firm. She coordinates and determines how to prove liability and damages in all of the cases, including those claiming failure to properly diagnose, surgical errors and other active commissions of malpractice by doctors, nurses and hospitals.

As one of the trial attorneys on Ruby v. Budget Rent a Car (2005), Dr. Friery helped Kreindler secure more than $20 million for its client, then the highest-ever New York State verdict in a personal injury case. Recently, she served as one of the two trial attorneys on Reis v. Volvo, a product liability case that resulted in a $8.75 million verdict for a then 56-year-old man who suffered an above-the-knee amputation when struck by a 1978 Volvo 340 that did not contain a clutch safety starter switch.

Dr. Friery received her medical degree from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University in 1988, where she graduated in the top one percent of her class. She has special training and experience in forensic pathology and has worked at numerous New York hospitals as well as at the New York City Medical Examiner’s Office. She has served as an advisor and worked for the American Red Cross, the National Kidney Foundation, Habitat for Humanity and the National Disaster Medical Response Teams.

  • Does the rules committee follow the rules? 2014/07/23
      Last Thursday, the Judicial Council’s Rules and Projects Committee (RUPRO) met to take up the issue of the renaming of the Administrative Office of the Courts, as requested by the Chief Justice.  The RUPRO meeting, conducted telephonically, was slated to run an hour.  It lasted only 15 minutes. As expected, the committee voted unanimously […]

  • Will the real judicial council board of directors please stand up? 2014/07/16
    “This retirement at once changes everything, and changes nothing.” Administrative Director of the AOC Steven Jahr   Doublespeak. We’re accustomed to hearing it from national leadership but from the ostensible leadership of a whole branch of state government, especially the judicial branch is …. uncommon. What bothers us the most about this statement is that […]

The Chi […]

  • The Judicial Council’s Extreme Makeover 2014/06/28
    For those of you who work for or have ever worked for the AOC as well as many of you in the courts, a move made this week to change the name of the administrative office of the courts is laughable and serves only to feverishly repaint the titanic just before it dips below the […]

  • When the court falsifies the record it undermines the integrity of the judicial system 2014/06/20
    Nobody is above the law. Well, except sometimes, when you’re a California judge. We generally make it a point to shy away legal cases and focus on what is wrong with the judicial branch. Mostly what is wrong with the judicial branch can be found in San Francisco. However……sometimes we see a series of incidents […]
