Don’t get on the bad side of the WSBA or you will pay

… but really is there a “good” side: Evidently not.

In the past 10 years 206 attorney’s have been disbarred:

The earliest disbarment I can find is from 1964 so roughly 50 years there have been 431 total.

Please let that soak in for a minute:

From 1964 to to 2004 there were 225 lawyers disbarred. Averaging about 5.6 per year

From 2004 to 2014 there was 206 lawyers disbarred Averaging about 20.6 per year

I’ve bolded the attorneys from Spokane & Snohomish Counties as well as the cases we know to be false for a total of 47 but there may be far more, I just have to spend more time investigating each particular case.

We will examine the suspensions, reprimands & censures (other forms of punishment) later because there are far too many for one story.

Please note: I have found about 12 more that I have not added to this list because I want to do their stories

As I was saying more then a quarter of these attorneys crossed paths with a specific group of members of the bar, in certain areas, & in some cases we know for a fact that these cases are false, but just think: 47 connected cases out of 206, possibly more. I might also point out more than 30 of these attorneys are from out of state & were just arbitrarily disbarred by default but I did not bold them.

Just look at what they did to

Doug Shafer
&
Robert Grundstein

So what changed? I think it’s safe to say that the WSBA did not suddenly grow morals or ethics. So what caused this massive surge in disbarments? Who changed in leadership?

I am still investigating & contacting people & will continue this report as soon as we have more info. If you have time read some of these cases.

  1. Just to show that the Bar doesn’t discriminate, I filed a Bar grievance against Scott Ellerby, Esq. for defrauding me of money. It was dismissed by the Bar! Of course Ellerby is a Hearing Officer for the WSBA, sits on Bar committees and helps “invest” money the Bar(members) takes from others. The Bar, in the “dismissal order” did say that if I obtained a “judicial finding of impropriety” the grievance would be reopened. So I filed a lawsuit against Ellerby to obtain a “judicial finding of impropriety”, — long story short…. the judge, WA State Bar Member Kevin Hull serving as Kitsap Superior Court Judge, dismissed the complaint and AWARDED Ellerby $120,000 for having to DEFEND against my lawsuit! What a racket! What a scheme these Bar racketeers have invented, which is to delegate to the grievant the task of obtaining a “judicial finding of impropriety” so as to steal more money from a citizen.

    • I agree Bill, I have been fighting an illegal conviction since 2009, due Prosecutor Wheeler, Judge Tabor, and my own lawyer Kevin Trombold for conspiring against me to rid themselves of an embarrassing case were police used excessive force and destroyed evidence. I also filled a law suit with the DOD. Now the Judges of the Third Circuit state I am responsible for the defendants legal fess. What did you do did you have to pay the fees?

      • Provided my son had the money, he could find himself (or his lawyer would) in the same situation. He has sat in jail for 5 moths, NO evidence points to him, AOL witnesses state he was not involved but it seems he will soon become a felon for something he did not do! My heart is breaking! And I don’t know where to turn…

  2. I’m not at all sympathetic with the lawyers or WSBA. It is easy for a lawyer to withhold settlement money and put in their own bank account vs putting in a separate trust. Why doesn’t the WSBA require separate trust funds instead of making theft by lawyers easy? Then the WSBA does nothing to help recover that money and drags their feet so long that it is impossible to track down the lawyer because they have left the state. Sure they disbarred the lawyer, but he still has my money.
