So I wrote to the WSBA (one of the entire boards) to express my concerns & share info about the gross abuses of clients by several high ranking disciplinary board
The letter was as follows:

Forgive this broad email but I am reaching out to everyone involved who is in the WSBA Court Rules & Procedures Committee, Liaisons, and even Nonmember Participants to try to ascertain just how many of you are aware that Lin O’Dell & Joseph Nappi have very questionable connections & associations. Along with quite a few others in your Association that are associates of both, as well as some in the Judiciary.
I have written several stories with proof & documentation about the allegations that I have made, I don’t say anything without proof.
I am writing to you all because you are responsible for policing the lawyers, prosecutors & judges in this state who pay a very lucrative fee to belong to your “Association” yet abuses like this & so many more happen daily. Some would say they are the norm.
If you could please answer these questions for me:
1} Since we know that Joseph Nappi used his influence to get Lin O’Dell appointed: What safeguards do you use to ensure that the very people you put in charge of others, who will be deciding the fate of others is operating above board & is ethical in their daily legal interactions?
2} Why has NO ONE (except for me) seemed to have noticed that Mr Nappi, Ms O’Dell & many of their associates associated with this board & many others are having most of their cases destroyed by one Judge in the Superior courts illegally? Including the Judge that has presided over most of their cases & who used to be a trust/guardian attorney as well (all of his records that were questionable were destroyed in May of 2011) We also found some of you & a few of the attorneys in Mr Nappi’s Office that took advantage of the same thing.
3} How many of you knew that Ms O’Dell was living with a convicted murderer & that she was placing him in the care & control of vulnerable adults, even to the point of threatening them. WHY would you let that continue? We know that numerous reports & bar complaints have been filed yet no one has ever addressed this issue.
4} We know that the board is aware of a land deal in a case where Ms O’Dell “bought” a 208,000.00 property from one of her wards, a Mr Highland for 15,000.00 so why hasn’t anyone investigated that? How is that NOTHING has been done about then when we have cases of certain attorneys where merely 4.00 short on a clients’ account being disbarred or suspended.
5} I would like to know how many of you have been involved in the solicitation of complaints against certain attorneys that you felt were somehow becoming an issue or who had upset someone else in city, county or state govt. I do have some of you actually sending out emails to solicit complaints against several attorneys, including one that is now under suspicion of rape. I am currently trying to find one single case where the Washington State Attorney General has ever prosecuted a rape case
6} I would also love to hear your explanation as to why in the entire history of the WSBA there has only been 1 prosecutor even suspended, never disbarred. According to your own website https://www.mywsba.org/DisciplineNotice/DisciplineDetail.aspx?dID=110
7} I would really like help understanding or being able to reference to a case where the bar has ever disbarred a non-attorney based on complaints by a non-client. I have searched for months & have never found one besides Ms Anne Block. I did find some reference to a CLIENT being able to file a complaint after the lawyer has quit, or resigned but never a non-attorney vs. a non-client
8} Why has Ms O’Dell not been suspended for practicing law in Idaho even though she is not licensed to practice law in that state?
Please don’t respond & tell me I am free to file a Bar Complaint because we all know that it will get filed in the round folder just like the rest of any citizens complaints. I personally sent the disciplinary board documented PROOF that Stevens County Prosecutor was funneling money from attorneys to a charity in Florida & back to his own charity & 1 week later the same board “cleared him of all charges” after they sat on it for almost a year.
I have also identified a very elite group that seem to be at the forefront of many attorneys who have been disbarred which is another story I am working on so that I can lay it out in a manner that my readers can understand.
I am writing about 16 to 30 more stories because I have so much documentation & so many people have stepped forward wanting to tell their stories so not all of the documentation has been destroyed even though the case files were. It is horrifying to me that I wrote one story & got 20 responses, I write another 1 & get 18 more. I hope they file a class action lawsuit in the Federal Courts
You are the very people who are supposed to protect clients so I am wondering it is policies or inaction it is that seem to prevent you from doing so.
Thank you very much for your time & consideration,
As you might expect…. There was almost no response, I did get one response but not one I am going to print here. That person was very nice but I don’t want them getting attacked because we KNOW how the bar goes after people.
This is what happens when you let the foxes guard the henhouse. The ONLY good thing that happened this week is that I found out that the lady who’s money Lin O’Dell is stealing is okay & didn’t freeze to death. Nevermind that Ms O’Dell FORGED a whole new trust contract without this woman’s consent or knowledge. I seen the document & it’s like she didn’t even try to fake it. Guess what the Washington State Bar Association will do about it? That’s right! Nothing…
I plan on doing a 10 part series of what they have done to just ONE person, it is the “Onion Effect” they bury people in litigation, lies & innuendos so that the truth can never surface. It is what they do to everyone they go after or attack, atleast that never changes. So this establishes that they are aware of what is going on & that they are doing nothing to correct it.
