Although, I’m interested in having the whole letter investigated, I’m extremely interested how a New Jersey Superior Court transcript can go missing, before it could be typed and released for a later Superior Court case.  And how a Law Firm’s attorneys were allowed to openly perjure themselves, because of the loss of this important Superior Court document.    http://www.americans-working-together.com/id111.html

To: The Honorable New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine

John “Jack” Cunningham Grievance against NEW JERSEY’S OFFICE OF ATTORNEY ETHICS


Theft of MY constitutional rights and due process under the law, by deception.


Office of the Governor
State House
P.O. Box 1
Trenton, NJ 08625

Dear Honorable Governor Jon S. Corzine,
I’m requesting that the State of New Jersey investigate my Ethics Complaints against New Jersey's Office of Attorney Ethics, their own Vice-Chairman Robert Correale, his political and legal supporters for a possible cover-up; and his Law Firm Maynard & Truland.   It’s been a five (5) year battle for me trying to receive my DUE PROCESS.  

The NEW JERSEY SUPREME COURT's Office of Attorney Ethics can not properly investigate my complaints due to a major Conflict of Interest.   They have already proven that they can not fairly judge one of their own Vice-Chairman.  Currently, there are no active court cases going on in the State of New Jersey over my Ethics Complaints against New Jersey's Office of Attorney Ethics, their Vice-Chairman Robert Correale and his Law Firm.

Vice-Chairman Robert Correale and his law Firm, Maynard & Truland were able to use their tremendous influence and power to their advantage in both a New Jersey Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics investigation as well as a Civil case for Legal Malpractice.   My evidence is clear about their use of their tremendous influence around the State of New Jersey

Former Governor James McGreevey personally thought enough about my evidence that he even supplied me with the phone number of the Director of
New Jersey Supreme Court's Office of Attorney Ethics.  Governor McGreevey’s Attorney General Office also sent communications to Director Johnson asking that I receive DUE PROCESS for my ethics complaints.   Please read Governor McGreevey's letter to me at:  EVIDENCE: GOVERNOR JAMES McGREEVEY AND NEW JERSEY ATTORNEY GENERAL'S OFFICE    http://www.americans-working-together.com/attorney_ethics/id11.html

      On September 6, 2000, I hired the law firm Maynard & Truland, LLC of Morristown, NJ to represent me in a divorce case initiated by my former wife.  I was informed by the firm’s partner Joe Truland, Esq. that he had recently hired a divorce attorney.    (Custody of our two minor children was both their mother's and my concerns.)

I signed the Maynard & Truland Contract and paid the accepted $750 retainer   http://www.americans-working-together.com/attorney_ethics/id9.html .   Six days later, my $750 Retainer Check cleared my checking account.  Twenty-two (22) days later, due to the Gross Negligence of the Maynard & Truland divorce attorney Edward Busichio, I was placed in a divorce default for lack of activity on my Law Firm's part.   (My own Law Firm placed me in default, where I could actually lose custody of my two daughters.  I was extremely worried...  I'm sure most fathers or mothers would be extremely worried too!)

At the time of the default, the Sussex County Superior Court and my former-wife's attorney didn't even know I had retained a Law Firm.   My Law Firm, which had cashed my $750 retainer-check weeks earlier, failed to send out the required document to the concerned parties.    (HOWEVER  IN  A  SWORN  CERTIFICATION  TO  NEW  JERSEY'S  SUPREME  COURT  OFFICE  OF  ATTORNEY  ETHICS,  ROBERT  CORREALE,  ESQ.  STATED  THE  PROPER  DOCUMENTS  WERE  PREPARED.   THIS  LIE  WAS  SO  IMPORTANT  TO  ROBERT  CORREALE  THAT  HE  LISTED  IT  AS  HIS  HISTORY  EVENT  6.    PRESS  HERE  TO  READ  THIS  PIECE  OF  PERJURY,  ALONG  WITH  HIS  OTHER  PERJURIOUS  STATEMENTS  TO  NEW  JERSEY'S  SUPREME  COURT.)    http://www.americans-working-together.com/attorney_ethics/id3.html

During those twenty-two (22) days leading up to the default, I phoned Maynard & Truland’s divorce attorney Edward Busichio a number of times reminding him of the approaching Default Deadline.  Each call, I spoke to the Maynard & Truland office manager and I requested a return phone call.  However, no calls were returned by Maynard & Truland.   This is all well-documented in both New Jersey Supreme Court and Superior Court filed letters and documents as well as in my Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) official medical records.   http://www.americans-working-together.com/attorney_ethics/id5.html

After I was placed in Divorce Default, in spite of my letters and phone calls to Partner Joe Truland and his divorce attorney Edward Busichio, the law firm did not start work on my case until sixty-nine (69) days after I signed their contract and paid them the $750 Retainer.  The evidence of this fact is found on three different formatted Maynard & Truland Invoices.  The first work the firm billed me for was 69 days (11/14/2000) after the contract was signed, which was, believe it or not, Default Removal.   http://www.americans-working-together.com/attorney_ethics/id2.html

The default was due to the Maynard and Truland divorce attorney's negligence for not filing the necessary papers to New Jersey's Superior Court.  Why the law firm was charging me, I was not sure.  I questioned these charges (At the over-charged rate) even in my first letter to New Jersey's Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics.

Sometime after the Default and before the start-work-date (69 days into the contract ), the Maynard & Truland supervising partners, without my prior approval or my notification, switched my divorce case representation from their divorce attorney Edward Busichio to one of the law firm’s general practice attorney Robert Correale.    EVIDENCE:  MAYNARD & TRULAND SWITCH REPRESENTATION TO VICE-CHAIRMAN OF ATTORNEY ETHICS    http://www.americans-working-together.com/attorney_ethics/id20.html

What made this so secretive switch, so interesting is that Robert Correale was the Vice-Chairman of New Jersey’s Supreme Court Attorney Ethics.  I never did receive notice why this switch took place, so eventually through evidence, I started thinking that the switch was to use Vice-Chairman Robert Correale’s influence around the State of New Jersey, if I brought up ethics complaints against the Maynard & Truland law firm.    I was up against the reputation of a distinguished attorney and state government official, and the reputation of the New Jersey’s Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics. 

SOME  OF  THE  ETHICS  PROBLEMS:

New Jersey’s Supreme Court Attorney Ethics Vice-Chairman Robert Correale did the billing for Default Removal at an over-charged rate.  Although the Divorce Default was due to divorce attorney Edward Busichio’s gross negligence, the Vice-Chairman of Attorney Ethics felt that I should be charged at a $175 an hour rate.   The Maynard & Truland Contract states that the first 10 hours of attorney work was to be charged at the $150 per hour rate.   All work after the first ten hours were to be charged at the $175 rate.
     Although I brought these two billing problems to Maynard & Truland partner Joe Truland and Robert Correale’s attention in writing, Robert Correale continued to over-charge me and never removed the charges for Default Removal.   The three different formatted invoices in conjunction with the Maynard & Truland Contract are all extremely clear.  

In December 2000, I first started complaining about Maynard & Truland’s ethics problems to New Jersey’s Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics.    I wrote to their District X Ethics Committee that covers both Morris and Sussex Counties of New Jersey.  My letter and the evidence I attached to it, clearly highlighted the amount of pain I was under due to ongoing ethics violations.  However, I got no where, since Vice-Chairman Robert Correale was the Vice-Chairman of that same committee.   EVIDENCE: LETTER ONE TO NEW JERSEY'S OFFICE OF ATTORNEY ETHICS (CORREALE'S DISTRICT X )   http://www.americans-working-together.com/attorney_ethics/id8.html

A Conflict of Interest was never mentioned in their return letter to me.    They must have known that the Morris County New Jersey Law Firm, Maynard & Truland was the same law firm of their Vice-Chairman Robert Correale.  Two of my evidence letters that were attached to my complaint letter to District X Attorney Ethics were addressed to Robert Correale, himself.    EVIDENCE: LETTER TWO AFTER MAYNARD & TRULAND'S NEGLIGENT DEFAULT    http://www.americans-working-together.com/attorney_ethics/id6.html

One of my favorite ethics violations of Robert Correale was the day of Divorce Arbitration in Sussex County Superior Court on February 14, 2001.   Robert was a general-practice attorney and he gave me the impression that he had not served on too many divorce cases.     EVIDENCE: DIVORCE ARBITRATION STATEMENT     http://www.americans-working-together.com/attorney_ethics/id4.html
 
The last time I received DUE PROCESS from the
New Jersey Court Systems was March 11, 2003.   Maynard and Truland, LLC brought me to New Jersey Superior Court for a Civil Case for refusing to pay the remainder of their open bill of $1,600.  The Law Firm served their papers for this Superior Court Civil case to me in December 2002, a few days before Christmas.     Within days, I counter-claimed on the same docket for Legal Malpractice.

Originally, the Maynard & Truland firm had a collections law firm representing them in their open bill collections case.  However, I sent the collections law firm some of my legal malpractice evidence I had against the Maynard & Truland firm.

March 11, 2003 was the court date in New Jersey Superior Court in Sussex County.   Vice-Chairman of Attorney Ethics Robert Correale, Esq. was there representing himself and his Law Firm MAYNARD & TRULAND, LLC.   The collections law firm was no longer part of the case.
       I had to represent myself PRO SE, because no attorney wanted to go against the local Vice-Chairman of Attorney Ethics without big money up front.   
      I was a nervous wreck that day, but Honorable Superior Court Judge Ronald Graves had much of my evidence before him.   My evidence is what beat Vice-Chairman Robert Correale, Esq. and his law firm.  He couldn't go against his own Law Firm's own contract, invoices, court documents; court filed letters and statements, my VA medical records, etc.  (He had supplied the court no evidence to prove me wrong.)
     After Robert Correale’s objections, Judge Graves decided that my Malpractice Counter-claim warranted the
New Jersey Superior Court Law Division for damages.

That same day, in a Sussex County hallway, Robert Correale informed me that I should NOT bring my Ethics Claim through District X due to a CONFLICT OF INTEREST.  I informed him that I did not have a choice. The decision was NOT mine.     I asked Correale to please inform Trenton’s Office of Attorney Ethics about his Committee’s Conflict of Interest.
 
      Sometime after Honorable Judge Ronald Graves made his decision that my Legal Malpractice complaints warranted the Law Division for damages;  strangely the court transcript went missing within
Sussex County’s Superior Court before it could be typed.    EVIDENCE: SUPERIOR COURT HONORABLE RONALD GRAVES' COURT TRANSCRIPT GOES STRANGELY-MISSING     http://www.americans-working-together.com/attorney_ethics/id18.html

Since there was no record of Superior Court Judge Graves’ Law-Division-Merit-Decision, the Maynard & Truland attorneys were able to perjure themselves verbally in open court; as well as perjure themselves in official court documents.     EVIDENCE: MAYNARD & TRULAND ATTORNEY COMMITS PERJURY IN SUPERIOR COURT    http://www.americans-working-together.com/attorney_ethics/id19.html


Serving as PRO SE, my Legal Malpractice civil case against Maynard & Truland went all the way up to New Jersey’s Appellate Division in Trenton, but was thrown out for lack of merit since Honorable Judge Graves’ decision in my favor couldn’t be used.  The transcript was still lost within
Sussex County Superior Court and was never found by the court stenographer.
Also, since I could not use Honorable Superior Court Judge Ronald Graves civil court decision as an outside opinion on my Office of Attorney Ethics complaints against Correale and his Law Firm, I did not have much chance of  DUE PROCESS.  The
New Jersey’s Supreme Court Director Johnson’s Office assigned the complaint case to Robert Correale’s own committee that he was Vice-Chairman of.   The Conflict of Interest was not admitted by the Office of Attorney Ethics until hundreds of my letters went out.    Both Governor  McGreevey and the New Jersey Attorney General office sent written correspondence and some of my evidence to Director Johnson.  Governor McGreevey even supplied me with Director Johnson’s direct phone line and I called him a couple of times, but Johnson never returned my phone calls.

      After hundreds of my letters, the Office of Attorney Ethics finally switched the investigation from Correale’s District X to his neighbor in District XI.
     District XI went through some minor motions.

In early May 2003, MAYNARD & TRULAND  attorneys Edward Busichio, Robert Correale (Vice-Chairman of DISTRCT X) made sworn CERTIFICATIONS to District XI, Secretary Robert Stober.  James Maynard supplied a cover letter with his own type of certifications.  For unknown reasons, Joe Truland, Esq. (defendant and junior partner) did NOT supply a CERTIFICATION to District XI.   EVIDENCE:   MAYNARD & TRULAND'S OWN CERTIFICATIONS TO NEW JERSEY'S SUPREME COURT   http://www.americans-working-together.com/attorney_ethics/id3.html

Although these Supreme Court CERTIFICATIONS were sworn to, they were vague, misleading and at times, perjurious.  None of the Maynard & Truland attorneys attached any evidence to their sworn Certifications.    Their written words were stronger than their Law Firm's own Contract and Invoices, Court filed documents, letters, statements and Federal Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Records.   

Instead of supplying evidence to their Certifications, Vice-Chairman Robert Correale was allowed to openly mock my military PTSD disability in his Certification.   EVIDENCE:  "HIDING IN THE BACK  OF  THE  COURTROOM"     http://www.americans-working-together.com/attorney_ethics/id21.html

       On the other hand, I had sent to the District XI Ethics Committee,  Maynard & Truland’s own contract, their own invoices, my Federal Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical records, court filed documents, court filed statements, court filed letters, etc.   It was pretty much the same evidence that I sent the Honorable Sussex County Superior Court Judge Ronald Graves, which he determined my Legal Malpractice evidence warranted the Law Division for damages.  

 Since one of my ethics complaints is related to MAYNARD & TRULAND, LLC over-charging for the first ten hours of the CONTRACT, both District X Vice-Chairman Robert Correale and Senior Partner James Maynard addressed MAYNARD & TRULAND, LLC billing procedures.  Although both their interpretations were perjurious statements, their CERTIFICATIONS were accepted and NOT questioned by Secretary Robert Stober in spite of my sending a great deal of follow-up evidence.  However, they did supply me with needed communications. Prior to these CERTIFICATIONS, MAYNARD & TRULAND, LLC never addressed my letters of October, November and December 2000.   Also, Busichio’s CERTIFICATION was the first time I heard the reason for my DIVORCE DEFAULT was “A SURPRISE.”    EVIDENCE: CERTIFICATION OF EDWARD BUSICHIO TO NEW JERSEY ATTORNEY ETHICS     http://www.americans-working-together.com/attorney_ethics/id15.html
     
A professional divorce attorney admitting the reason why I fell into Divorce Default was a surprise to him.  His law firm did not start work until sixty-nine (69) days into the Contract.  Edward Busichio, Esq. has been lucky that the general-practice attorney, who replaced him on my representation in my divorce case, was a Vice-Chairman of
New Jersey’s Supreme Court of Attorney Ethics.

WHEN  VICE-CHAIRMAN  ROBERT  CORREALE  WAS TRYING  HIS  FELLOW    NEW  JERSEY  ATTORNEYS  FOR  ETHICS  VIOLATIONS...   WAS  HE  SO  LAX  WITH  FOLLOWING  SUPREME  COURT  GUIDELINES  FOR  TELLING  THE  TRUTH? 


Isn’t five years too much to ask a PTSD Disabled Vet to battle for his DUE PROCESS? 

Even in New Jersey, Deception should only go so far… 

Like I already wrote, it has been a five (5) year battle.  But I won’t give up until I get my DUE PROCESS. 

Theft of MY constitutional rights and due process under the law, by deception.

Governor Corzine, you promised to fight corruption.  Please start with the top of New Jersey’s Office of Attorney Ethics.

          Sincerely and Truthfully,

         John “Jack” Cunningham

Why don't some politicians and government officials think PTSD is a real disability?
 
 
PTSD is called a disability for a reason.
Whether intentional or not...   For a government agency or government official to exacerbate and/or take advantage of the disability of honorable veterans is a disgrace and should be a crime.

The state office in New Jersey, who investigates corrupt attorneys, is the New Jersey State's Office of Attorney Ethics.  My case actually deals with Legal Malpractice with a Vice-Chairman of New Jersey's Attorney Ethics...   There is a major Conflict of Interest and Cover-Up.    There is plenty of evidence at the link next to my name.
 
 
Many of you have already visited my many patriotic websites around the internet.  I have hundreds of webpages.  I'm disabled with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and I try to use my 20-plus years of working in Data Processing as a positive, therapetic hobby.  Last month alone 80,000 visitors came to my websites.
 
This website is dedicated to a problem I've had with Government Officials and Politicians NOT taking me serious enough.  Please take the time to read what I have posted on this site.  It's all true and I have much more evidence to prove what I have posted here.
 
So far, this battle has been between a corrupt state government official and a PTSD Vietnam Vet.  It's been four years now and I need support...

Equal Justice Under The Laws

 
Below is taken from an actual Superior Court document.
It is part of a defense letter of a powerful and influential Law Firm.
A disabled PTSD Vietnam Veteran was bringing a Legal Malpractice case against the Law Firm in Superior Court.   The Disabled Vet's evidence had already won in a different level of Superior Court.
     Due to the influence of the Law Firm in the State of New Jersey, the disabled PTSD veteran was forced to represent himself as PRO SE against the firm's team of attorneys.   (Actually, the disabled vet's evidence did all the work...)

The American Military aims to remove the stigma from seeking therapy for post-combat stress.
(Story at the below link.)
  
PTSD has the real STIGMA.   Sadly, many Americans still have the image of Rambo in their minds, when it comes to PTSD Veterans...
 
This image must be replaced with the Truth...         My future PTSD Discimination case against the State Of New Jersey will be a great start for the federal government to remove the PTSD stigma.
 
 
 
 

The United States Military taught us many things,

SURRENDER  WAS  NEVER  AN  OPTION
 
PLEASE  READ
Some Detail Vietnam War Experiences of Jack Cunningham, who this website and Law Firm complaints are about.
Jack learned early, when he was living  (24/7)  in a Vietnamese peasant-farming village that "surrender was never an option."    His Marine Corps training taught him well...

-----------------------------------------------------------
 
So far, estimates are that over 100,000 of our current honorable, brave men and women in uniform suffer various degrees of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder  (PTSD).   It's a problem that stays mostly behind closed-doors.   However, for those who suffer from PTSD and their loved-ones, the illness is real and painful.
 
Learn the saga of a PTSD Veteran as he battled a powerful and politically connected Law Firm in a Legal Malpractice case as they used the veteran's own disability against him.  (Politicians do not want to help this honorable veteran too.   Instead the politicians chose to help the corrupt Law Firm.) 
 
Is this what today's new, honorable PTSD Disabled Veterans face...    I hope not.
 

 
During a Legal Malpractice case against a powerful and influential New Jersey Law Firm, in spite of tremendous, clear evidence against the Firm, their team of attorneys was able to use a honorable vet's PTSD Disability in a prejudicial manner against him.  Serving as PRO SE due to various, valid reasons, this honorable CAP Marine was presented in Court Papers to look like he was incoherent, rambling, and paranoid.
 
 
However, in this same Legal Malpractice case, before these papers were released, this same PRO SE Disabled Veteran was able to beat this Law Firm in SUPERIOR COURT.
 
Please read below what happened in Superior Court of Sussex County, New Jersey. 
 
 
 

 
 
IN A NEW JERSEY LEGAL MALPRACTICE CASE,  AFTER REVIEW OF A  'PRO SE'  PTSD VIETNAM VET'S  EVIDENCE, SUSSEX COUNTY SUPERIOR COURT's JUDGE, HONORABLE  RONALD GRAVES  DECIDES  THAT  THE  SUPERIOR COURT'S  LAW  DIVISION  IS  WARRANTED  FOR  DAMAGES.   
 
The Honorable Judge Graves made his decision over the objections of the defendant Law Firm's lawyer.  Their lawyer happened to be the local Vice-Chairman of New Jersey's SUPREME COURT's Office of Attorney Ethics.    He was defending himself, and his Law Firm.     
 
Although this official of New Jersey's SUPREME COURT's  lost  to a PRO SE (Self Represented)  PTSD Vietnam Veteran in this Legal Malpractice case, he had nothing to fear.   The Sussex County, New Jersey  Superior Court Transcript was LOST and NEVER found...        (Please Read Below)

On March 11, 2003, the attorney, who represented the Law Firm in this Legal Malpractice case, was the Local Vice-Chairman of New Jersey's SUPREME COURT Office of Attorney Ethics.  (He carried much influence.)  Some time after March 11, 2003, the Court Transcript for this case went missing within the Superior Court itself and was NEVER released.   Although Honorable Judge Graves ruled that the PTSD vet's Legal Malpractice case warranted the Law Division for damages, without the court transcipt his ethics cases before Attorney Ethics and the Superior Court Law Division were thrown out.  
 
The below documents are filed in SUPERIOR COURT of Sussex County, New Jersey.   During this past year, these  documents were released to the defendant Law Firm and their local Vice-Chairman of Attorney Ethics at least three times.
 
In the last year, Honorable Judge Ronald Graves of Sussex County, New Jersey has received these documents at least twice through the SUPERIOR COURT.

If politicians;  and state and federal government officials are giving Lip-Service to vets, the military, their families and their friends during times of war, what are they giving non-veterans on a day-to-day basis."     http://home.earthlink.net/~americans_who_lived_as_peasants/id18.html
 
 

This case is about how a tag-team of corrupt lawyers were able to use an honorable Vietnam Vet's PTSD disability against him, when he tried to bring Legal Malpractices charges against them.  
 

During formal Divorce Arbitrations, I had to represent myself against my former wife's attorney.  I was extremely concerned about losing my parenting rights for our two minor children.  My former wife was in the small conference room and so was my lawyer.  My attorney came to the arbitration unprepared to handle my case.  He sat quietly next to me.    Press To Read:  JACK'S FORMER WIFE'S OPINION

My lawyer's, who was a New Jersey State Official, Law Office already had me in a four (4) Divorce Default due to their gross negligence.

My former-wife and I were happy with the results, when we left the arbitration conference room.  My lawyer was even happy.  He got to charge me for three hours at $175 per.  The funny thing was his own Contract Rate was only $150 per. 

He was able to over-charge me the $175 per hour; without question from the Attorney Ethics Committee that he was Vice-Chairman of.    

I complained about the over-charge, but he was allowed to keep it in the Invoice.  He had no reason to correct the charges; since he was Vice-Chairman of New Jersey's Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics.  My lawyer's ethics violations grew...   This Vice-Chairman of Attorney Ethics was even allowed to do some False-Billing of his own  (at the over-charged rate.)  There is much more to this saga. 

He was able to openly belittle my PTSD disability in sworn New Jersey Supreme Court Certifications.

For four years now, I've had a legal malpractice case running against this Vice-Chairman and his Law Firm.  But he has tremendous influence around New Jersey.  (In the courts as well as state politics.)

A  NEW JERSEY  PAYBACK  TO  AN  HONORABLE  VIETNAM   VETERAN,  WHO  SERVED  PROUDLY  DURING  THE  VIETNAM  WAR  IN  THE  MARINES CORPS'  COMBINED ACTION PROGRAM  (CAP).
 
I looked for Equal Justice From New Jersey Court Systems; And Instead Received Violations Against My Civil Rights, Because Of A Vice-Chairman Of New Jersey Supreme Court's Attorney Ethics And His Law Firm.

I've been on disability due to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder  (PTSD), since August 1989.  Prior to that, I worked for 18 years at Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield in Manhattan.  The year I went out on disability, I made $63,000 in salary as a data processing project manager.   It was a great job, especially since I only had about 12 college credits.  I earned the position with my Marine Corps determination of...   never giving up.
      I seldom took days off for illness and I was on call 24/7.  At the time, I was responsible for the huge, health insurance company's 6.5 million Subscriber Processing System.
 
        I hid my disability from my friends and co-workers at Blue Cross Blue Shield so well, few people saw my going out on long term disability coming.   When I left, it was heart-breaking for me.   My computer progamming team was my CAP Team in Vietnam.  I felt like I let everyone down.  We were a true team.
 
From the start, my PTSD wasn't a game.  It was real.  Everyday, I was reliving the stressors of serving in the Marine Corps Combined Action Program (CAP).   Some days were worse than others.
 
Being married with four children and having a mortgage, I knew I couldn't give up.  (But I was so ashammed of myself for being so weak.)
 
With intense therapy, I learned to understand my emotional disability.  My PTSD was just as real as my chronic pain that I was suffering.  The chronic pain in my chest, back and neck was due to a terrorist bomb blast I took in May 1970 in my Vietnamese Peasant-farming village.
     The problem with my chronic pain was that it grew much more intense when my PTSD was exacerbated.  Because of this, I was always trying to avoid conflict.
 
However, everyone knows a person can't avoid conflict too long.   Conflict is a big part of life.  It is what some people use to say separated the men from the boys...
 
     Since going out on disability, I had my share of various levels of conflict.  Like with most people, my divorce was hardest for me.   Twenty-five years of marriage and five children (two minors), I strongly felt my world was coming to an end!   My children meant a great deal to me.
     Although, I avoided conflicts at all costs, I knew that I could not sit around and hide from upcoming court proceedings.    I was told by veteran buddies that my Post Traumatic Stress Disorder would become a major issue during custody discussions.    (I was terrified about losing my two minor children, because of my Vietnam War service disability.)   The kids meant everything to me. 
 
      Immediately after receiving divorce papers, I called a Morristown, New Jersey law firm.  Months earlier, I was informed by a partner of this law firm that they were hiring a divorce attorney. 
 
     On the phone call, Partner Joe Truland  and I agreed to a retainer and costs.  We set up a meeting to sign the contact, pay the retainer and lay the details out with their divorce attorney.
      I tried to stay calm, because of the chilren, but found something new to worry about.  What if the divorce attorney didn't do his job and I fell into a divorce default.   I can lose the children without even a fighting chance.
 
The more I tried to stay calm, the more I would try to reasure myself that I would tell the divorce attorney and his supervising partner my concerns.  Irrational as my concerns were, at least the attorneys would understand my disability and give me some consideration for it.  Afterall, they were professional attorneys, who followed Ethics.  They would tell me what was irrational or not.
 
I was totally wrong in my belief that I was going to receive some considerations by my own Law Firm for my disability.  All I learned was that many of those lawyers jokes are well deserved.  In the end, this very, influential and powerful law firm was able to use my disability as a disadvantage against me.
     On the other hand, my former wife's attorney acted professionally and totally ethical.  During divorce arbitration, I was forced to represent myself, because my own attorney (Who was the local New Jersey Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics Vice-Chairman) came to court unprepared to represent my case.   Press here to read: JACK'S FORMER  WIFE'S  ARBITRATION  STATEMENT
      After the arbitration, everyone went away happy,especially the Vice-Chairman of Attorney Ethics Robert Correale. 
 
Although he was worthless to me, my powerful and very influential attorney charged me a number of hours ($175 per) of work.  (What made matters worse, the Contacted Rate was only $150 an hour.)
 
You can not guess what it was like to bring attorney ethics charges against this New Jersey Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics Vice-Chairman; especially for a PTSD Vietnam Veteran...   New Jersey Courts know who to support.  And they have been doing it openly.
 
The evidence against this Vice-Chairman and his Law Firm is overwhelming.  It has been only this Vice-Chairman's word against his own Law Firm's Contact and Invoices, Superior Court filed letters, statements and documents.   
 
Superior Court Judge Honorable Ronald Graves found that Jack's evidence against this Vice-Chairman and his Law Firm warranted the Superior Court Law Division for damages .  However, an extremely strange twist occurred with the Court Transcript.
 
Please continue to read the below details of the case.   I think you will find Jack's Divorce Default and how his Law Firm handled it, very interesting.
 
 
INTRODUCTION  OF  MY  ATTORNEY  ETHICS COMPLAINTS
 

My Supreme Court Attorney Ethics Complaints and Superior Court Legal Malpractice cases against Vice-Chairman Robert Correale and his Law Firm, MAYNARD & TRULAND have much to do with, but NOT totally, due to the fact that I’m 100% Permanent & Total PTSD Disabled through the Federal Department of Veterans Affairs.  (I have supplied tremendous amounts of documentation-evidence to the Superior Court of New Jersey and the New Jersey Supreme Court.  Maynard & Truland’s own contract, own invoices, Superior Court filed documents, Superior Court generated documents, personal statements, etc.)    

 

I hired Maynard & Truland to represent me in a divorce proceeding.  Well before my signing a CONTRACT with Maynard & Truland, the law firm knew of my preexisting PTSD Disability.  Seven months prior to my signing the Contract, my CAP Marine Buddy, George Dros and I had detailed meetings with the Law Firm’s Partner, Joe Truland, Esq.   (I have a written statement by George Dros that attests to this fact.) 

 

Although I signed their contract twenty-two (22) days before a possible Divorce Default, my PTSD symptoms were intense.  I was terrified about losing my two minor children from Divorce Default.  On September 6, 2000, two Maynard & Truland lawyers (Joe Truland and Edward Busichio) felt my fears were irrational and that I should try to calm down.  With twenty-two (22) days left before a possible Divorce Default, they repeatedly tried to reassure me that there was plenty of time to file the necessary Court Papers.  Divorce Attorney Edward Busichio assured me that due to the fact that there were no assets to divide in the divorce, the routine Court Papers would be filed in a couple of days. 

 

As days passed, since I was still somewhat terrified about losing my children in a Divorce Default, I made numerous phone calls to my Maynard & Truland Divorce Attorney Edward Busichio.  With each call, the Law Firm’s office manager received my concerns.  This Office Manager kept telling me NOT to worry, because their Divorce Attorney knew his job.  However, NONE of my phone calls were returned by their Divorce Attorney, Edward Busichio.   

     On September 28, 2000, in spite of my warning phone calls to the Law Firm, I fell into a Divorce Default.  Falling into Default due to the negligence of Maynard & Truland’s Divorce Attorney Edward Busichio; the supervising partners of the firm took it on themselves to change my representation responsibility to one of their Law Firm’s general practice attorneys.  This General Practice Attorney Robert Correale, Esq. happened to be the New Jersey SUPREME COURT’S Vice-Chairman of Attorney Ethics.      (Isn’t that strange…)

It has been a roller coaster like nightmare, since the switch in attorneys took place.

Vice-Chairman Robert Correale went on to commit his own open and well-documented Ethics Violations against me.

 

        I was NOT informed why I was placed into a three-(3) month Divorce Default, until May 2003.  In Edward Busichio’s written CERTIFICATION to the New Jersey Supreme Court’s District XI Attorney Ethics Committee, he admitted my Divorce Default was  “A Surprise.”  

 

New Jersey Supreme Court’s Office of Attorney Ethics accepted, without question and any supporting evidence, the SWORN Certifications of Vice-Chairman Robert Correale’s and Edward Busichio’s, and a misleading, vague and perjurious cover letter by their Supervising Partner, James Maynard.  Their statements to the Office of Attorney Ethics were accepted over Maynard & Truland’s own contract, own invoices, Superior Court filed documents, Superior Court generated documents, personal statements, etc.

      For some unknown reason, Partner Joe Truland, Esq. was NOT required to even submit a Certification to the Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics.

To Whom It May Concern:  

 

I’m requesting that the Department of Justice (DOJ) investigate each of the three separate roles that the above listed parts shared in this Disability Discrimination Complaint.

  

     You will read by my attached complaint form, my letters and my supporting evidence that starting in December 2000, and continuing to November 2004, I basically pleaded with the New Jersey Office of Attorney Ethics, their Vice-Chairman Robert Correale of District X and the New Jersey Superior Court to give me some reasonable Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Disability Considerations.   Although, the New Jersey Law Firm MAYNARD & TRULAND, LLC.  was the root of the initial problem; due to my PTSD Disability, the above listed three parts, as elements of the Government of New Jersey, were required to intercede on my behalf.  Under Title II ADA, I should have been receiving some type of federal considerations.  For these past four (4) years now, the State of New Jersey has discriminated against me by failing to make reasonable modifications to their regular New Jersey State policies, practices and procedures.

     Even though Attorney Ethics Vice-Chairman Robert Correale worked for Maynard & Truland, LLC  (CONFLICT Of INTEREST), as a State Official, he was still required to uphold the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) Title II.  

       Please be advised that I have a great deal of additional evidence for you to review.

            Sincerely and Tuthfully

            John  “Jack” Cunningham

I’m a Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) veteran, who is rated 100% Permanent & Totally Disabled by the Federal Department of Veterans Affairs.  

 

      On September 8, 2000, I signed a CONTRACT with the law firm of MAYNARD & TRULAND of Morristown, NJ to represent me in a divorce case.  Since there were no assets involved, two minor children were the center of the case.

      In the opening Divorce Papers, based on the advice of her attorney, my former wife falsely accused me of child abuse against our two minors.  Having received the Divorce Papers late, due to a visit to my son in California, I was extremely concerned about losing Parenting Rights for these two children.   The catastrophic fear of falling into a DEFAULT was extremely terrifying.   From the day of the Contract Signing, the law firm’s Partner Joe Truland as well as his divorce attorney knew of my PTSD disability and my catastrophic fear of falling into default.  They both felt my fear was unfounded, since they were both professionals.

      Twenty-two (22) days later, in spite of numerous warning phone calls to the Law Firm from me, I was thrown into divorce default, due to my divorce attorney’s negligence for not filing any Superior Court Papers.   A week later, after receiving no return communications from the Law Firm, I wrote a complaint letter to my divorce attorney Edward Busichio and his supervisor, Law Firm Partner Joe Truland.   Although my letter, addressed to three members of the law firm, clearly highlighted their lack of activity, lack of communications and the exacerbation of my PTSD disability, I received no written responses or phone calls.  Instead, sometime during the next month, my representation was quietly switched from the Law Firm’s Divorce Attorney to general practice attorney Robert Correale, who was a New Jersey Attorney Ethics official. 

      Based on the Law Firm’s own Invoices, sixty-nine (69) days into the CONTRACT (over a month after the Default), New Jersey’s Attorney Ethics Vice-Chairman Robert Correale started Divorce Removal work and charged me for it at an over-charged rate.  I sent two more complaint letters to the law firm about their exacerbation of my disability, their lack of activity and communications, as well as their charging me for Divorce Default Removal at an over-charged rate.  Although Robert Correale was a sworn official of the State of New Jersey’s Office of Attorney Ethics, he kept the False Charges, at the Over-Charged rate on his Law Firm’s Invoices.   

       Also, for still unknown reasons, in spite of his State-Wide influence, for over two months, he was unable to remove me from Divorce Default.  I had to write a letter to the Sussex County Superior - Family Judge, before I was finally released on January 9, 2001 (Four months into the Law Firm’s Contract.)

      Still not notified that my representation was switched within Maynard & Truland, LLC., and not aware that the Law Firm had a representative on our local Attorney Ethics committee, in December 2000, I wrote our local committee in the hope to lessen the additional stress Maynard & Truland, LLC. was placing me under.  Although I supplied the committee with detailed Department of Veterans Affairs documentation about my disability, Attorney Ethics District X wrote me that due to state guidelines, they were unable to intercede.  District X’s letter did not mention the CONFLICT of INTEREST that existed between their own Vice-Chairman and my Ethics Complaint.    (It took over two years, and hundreds of my letters before the New Jersey’s Office of Attorney Ethics finally admitted to this major CONFLICT of INTEREST.) 

     Vice-Chairman Robert Correale’s open ethics violations continued.  On February 14, 2001, he came to Sussex County NJ Superior Court unprepared for Divorce Arbitration.  Although I was accepted into a VA  45 Day PTSD Stress Unit just the month before, I had to represent myself against my former wife’s attorney during Divorce Arbitration.  This is all well documented in my Department of Veteran Affairs Medical Records.

 

      In December 2002, Maynard & Truland, LLC. opened up a Civil Case against me in Sussex County NJ Superior Court for an open bill.  I counter-claimed for Legal Malpractice, and supplied the Sussex County Superior Court with Maynard & Truland’s own Contract, Invoices, Court-filed Documents, Court-filed Statements, etc.   On March 11, 2003, the Sussex County NJ Superior Court case was held before Honorable Ronald Graves.  I represented myself as PRO SE and New Jersey’s local Office of Attorney Ethics Vice-Chairman Robert Correale represented his own Law Firm.   After detailed review of my evidence, Judge Ronald Graves, against the objections of the local Vice-Chairman of Attorney Ethics, decided that my Legal Malpractice claim warranted the Law Division for damages.  (Please read the footnote at the end of this document.)

        At the time of Honorable Judge Graves decision, I was already a month and a half into a letter writing campaign, trying to get Trenton NJ’s Office of Attorney Ethics to investigate their District X Vice-Chairman Robert Correale, his Law Firm’s Ethics Violations and their Conflict of Interest.   After numerous letters, the Office of Attorney Ethics was still not acknowledging my letters, so I started Cc:ing New Jersey State Government Officials.  The day of Judge Ronald Graves’ decision, Vice-Chairman Robert Correale mentioned to me, my open Attorney Ethics complaints against him.  Since New Jersey State’s Office of Attorney Ethics Official John McGill was insisting that Correale’s own District X Ethics Committee review my ethics complaints against his Law Firm,  I asked Correale why his supervisors weren’t aware that there was a major Conflict of Interest.  Although he was a high ranking New Jersey State Ethics Official himself, he had no answer. 

      Starting in December 2000, my disability’s exacerbation was clear in all of my letters addressed to the Office of Attorney Ethics.   Finally, after the New Jersey State Office of Attorney Ethics received letters and documentation from Governor McGreevey and the New Jersey Attorney General’s office, they admitted to their Conflict of Interest.  April 8, 2003, my grievance against District X’s Vice-Chairman and his Law Firm was transferred to the nearby District XI Committee.

    In early May 2003, my original divorce attorney Edward Busichio and Vice-Chairman Robert Correale were required to send in sworn CERTIFICATIONS to the District XI

Attorney Ethics Committee, Secretary Robert Stober.  Law Firm Partner James Maynard supplied the cover letter, where he acknowledged my PTSD Disability and falsely explained his law firm’s billing process.  For unknown reasons, Maynard & Truland Partner Joe Truland, who was also a defendant in my complaints, was not required to file his own CERTIFICATION to the committee.    Although my original Divorce Attorney Edward Busichio’s Certification was extremely vague, he did admit that my falling into a Default, because of his not filing Court Papers, was “a Surprise” to him.

     Vice-Chairman Correale’s Certification was very detailed; however his details were clearly vague, perjurious and misleading.  Although his Certification to District XI Attorney Ethics did mention how he later substituted in my divorce case, he supplied no reason why his Law Firm’s Partners made the adjustment in my representation.  Correale’s supplied his own interpretation of his law firm’s billing process, but it clearly did not agree with his supervising partner James Maynard’s version.  Both attorneys’ billing explanations did NOT agree with the simple wording of their own Contract.  Even though Correale was the current Vice-Chairman of District X Attorney Ethics, his Certification clearly highlighted his Law Firm’s open contemptuous attitude for my PTSD Disability.  

        Vice-Chairman Robert Correale, his supervising partner James Maynard and my original divorce attorney Edward Busichio were not required to supply any supporting evidence with their Certifications.  On the other hand, I supplied even more evidence (Maynard & Truland’s own Contract, Invoices, Court-filed Documents, Court-filed Statements, etc.) to District XI, Secretary Robert Stober than I did Superior Court Judge Ronald Graves, who earlier determined that Maynard & Truland’s Ethics Violations warranted the Superior Court Law Division for damages.  I also supplied New Jersey Attorney Ethics District XI, Secretary Robert Stober with a detailed response to the Mayard & Truland Certifications, where I contradicted their statements with my supplied evidence.   Instead of receiving a response to my evidence, I received another notification of another delay in the New Jersey State Investigation because of State Guidelines.

        For months, I continued to write the New Jersey Office of Attorney Ethics in the hope of activating the investigation.  Each of my letters to New Jersey Attorney Ethics and State officials highlighted the exacerbation of my disability that their cover-up was causing me.

       On January 19, 2004, Attorney Ethics District XI, Secretary Robert L. Stober wrote that Vice-Chairman Robert Correale and his Law Firm were cleared of all charges and my claims against them were dropped.

 

Footnote:  Strangely, the Superior Court Transcript for Judge Graves’ decision was lost within Sussex County Superior Court, before it could be released to its own Law Division and the New Jersey Appellant Division.   Although I wrote statements to Sussex County Superior Court Honorable Judges Karen Russell and Ronald Graves as well as Appellant Division Judges, Judge Graves’ Court decision was not even mentioned in the final Appellant Court papers to me.   The Civil Case was then closed due to a lack of an Affidavit of Merit.  Please read my Title II Discrimination Case against New Jersey’s Superior Court System.  In spite of supplying detailed medical documentation and statements from medical professionals, I was given no Title II Disability Considerations, due to the fact I was representing myself PRO SE.   

Judge Graves missing Court Transcript was not even mentioned by the New Jersey Appellant Division in their NOVEMBER 2004 Court Papers that closed the civil case for lack of merit.

 

SHOULD  FAIR  AND  REASONABLE  COMMUNICATIONS  BEEN  TO MUCH  TO  ASK  THE  STATE  OF  NEW  JERSEY?   

AT  NO  TIME  DID  I  EXPECT  THE STATE  OF  NEW JERSEY  TO  BREAK  POLICIES AND  PROCEDURES.  

HOWEVER,  I  DID  EXPECT THEM TO ANSWER MY LETTERS WITH VALID EXPLANATIONS...   

 

IF THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY WAS RECOGNIZING TITLE II ADA RESPONSIBILITIES, WHY DID IT TAKE  THREE (3) YEARS AND HUNDREDS OF MY LETTERS BEFORE THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY ADMITTED TO A CONFLICT OF INTEREST ON NEW JERSEY ATTORNEY ETHICS VICE-CHAIRMAN ROBERT CORREALE 

 

Just below this is a copy of the first Letter that I sent  New Jersey's Office of Attorneys Ethics.   Vice-Chairman Robert Correale was the Vice-Chairman of this same DISTRICT X Committee and my own attorney at Maynard & Truland, LLC.      Please check the date on my letter.   December 21, 2000.  

Strangely, right after Maynard & Truland's Divorce Attorney's Negligence Edward Busichio caused me to fall into DIVORCE DEFAULT, the Law Firm's Partners switched my representation from Edward Busichio to their own local  representative on New Jersey's Attorneys Ethics, Vice-Chairman Robert Correale.  

However, the Law Firm never informed me why this switch in representation took place.  (I hired the Law Firm because of their Divorce Attorney.)   Robert Correale was a general-practice attorney.  I strongly believe that I was one of his first divorce cases, if not the first...   I never did get an answer to this question, or the questions I addressed in my letters to New Jersey's Office of Attorney Ethics about Correale's involvement in their Office.

 

It took hundreds of my letters spread over three years, before New Jersey Office of Attorney Ethics admitted to Correale's major CONFLICT OF INTEREST.   He carefully didn't admit the Conflict of Interest until March 11, 2003.

 

Months later, New Jersey Office of Attorney Ethics Vice-Chairman Robert Correale own CERTIFICATION to New Jersey Attorney Ethics was perjurious, vague, contemptuous and extremely misleading.  My evidence proves each above adjective.  Yet Vice-Chairman Correale’s CERTIFICATION  (With no supporting evidence)  was accepted over his Law Firm’s own CONTRACT and INVOICES.

Just a week after the above letter was sent out by  New Jersey's Office of Attorney Ethics, on March 11, 2003, in New Jersey's SUPERIOR COURT, Honorable Judge Ronald Graves, against the objections of Vice-Chairman Robert Correale himself, determined that my original Legal Malpractice Complaints against Correale and his Law Firm warranted the New Jersey Superior Court's Law Division for damages.
 
However, strangely as it might seem, New Jersey's Superior Court Transcript for Judge Graves' decision went missing in the local courthouse.    (At the time, Correale was New Jersey's local Vice-Chairman of Attorney Ethics...) 
 
Below are a few letters that helped the New Jersey Office of Attorney Ethics to recognize their Vice-Chairman Robert Correale's Conflict of Interest.

Do you think New Jersey's Office of Attorney Ethics made reasonable modifications to policies, practices, and procedures, where necessary to avoid discrimination...    Or did the New Jersey Office of Attorney Ethics openly try to take clear advantage of an Honorable Veteran's Disability in order to protect a New Jersey State Official?
