Our Condolences to the Koenig Family

Antoinette Marie Koenig

I am sad to report that the mother of Joe Koenig passed away recently. Antoinette Marie Koenig came from a time when family values were intact in this country and raising a family was the ‘job 1′. Just by knowing her son Joe is enough for me to understand the ‘family’ and values that only a strong mother could pass on to her sons and daughters. We here at DESPERATEEXES send our heart felt sympathy to Joe and his family.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH JUDGE TAMARA E. HALL?

Judge Tamara Hall

Absolutely nothing is wrong with Judge T.E. Hall. What we are seeing and hearing in the on going attacks of DIVORCE judges is something that is ‘All’ a Los Angeles thing. ‘All’ a DIVORCE Los Angeles thing actually. Lets see, you are a litigant and you don’t like what you are hearing from the bench of a L.A. Superior Court Judge, who has the nasty and unforgiving duty to try and make sense out of your miserable and ill advised life. Why? Because you and yours can’t! Is what you are hearing from the court any different than what you heard from your spouse, former love of your life, your financial security blanket and now the target of your vengeance? Hmmmm?

Judge Tamara Hall was appointed to the bench by Gov. Terminator July 2010. I clearly remember Judge Hall’s appointment, as I recall her when she was a prosecutor assigned to the ‘Hard Core Gang Unit’. Now do any of you morons out there, both with a BAR card and a DIVORCE beef, think for one minute you are going to shake this judge? She is one of those judges that can talk the talk and walk the walk. A tough, no nonsense judge. Don’t like her attitude? I bet she does not like yours either. News Break… she is the judge, all she has to do is interpret the law and make decisions, good or bad, fairness and even handedness is a concept of interpretation, thus the job of a judge.

100% unpure adulterated Evil!

100% unpure adulterated Evil!

Maybe it is just that I too have some bias. I too have taken on judges that I KNEW were wrong, horribly wrong. Judge Teresa Beaudet is a perfect example of pure evil! Judge Iwasaki is an example of a bench officer who can get his panties in a bunch pretty easily and throw a kid out of a home he shares with his mom based on lies. I have not seen any such behavior from Judge Hall, and frankly I have watched Judge Hall. Judge Hall tries and make sense at times of what from were I am sitting is such a waste of time. Having spoken to many judges over the years candidly, I have to believe that they too find this hilarious that lawyers are getting paid to present nonsense and lots of it to the court. This is also unique to DIVORCE court. Again, I suggest you try this crap in criminal court. LMAO!

The other problem in DIVORCE court is this, NO ONE GOES TO JAIL for being less than honest, LIARS!!! Stephen Kolodny calls the Divorce Court here in Los Angeles (Stanley Mosk) The “Palace of Perjury”……terrible to say, but 110% the truth. Maybe, if some of the judges assigned to this place of misery could throw some of you lying sacks of poop in jail for a few days, maybe that would bring you to the realization this is a court of law. And most of the times it is the litigants who are out of control and seldom the judge! But where is the fear? There is none, and thus, we see this constant attempts to coerce the judges by ridiculous ‘he / she is not fair, they are insensitive’. Bullshit, I say!

should've seen it coming

should’ve seen it coming

Oh we have read all the ‘just take Judge Feffer’s complaints and substitute Judge Hall’s name’. Let me share something here. Judge Feffer was a dam good judge and now she is a dam happy judge, as most judges in Los Angeles are who get assigned to DIVORCE court and then do their time in hell and move on. For a judge who goes from DIVORCE to any other assignment, is a happy judge. BTW, those who have to manage the courts, and the bench officers know who all of you are, the malcontents and their cronies, they also realize the difficulty it has been to keep qualified people sitting and listening to the whinny litigants who wonder through the land of DIVORCE in wonderment as to why is this all happening. Pretty simple frankly, revenge and not being able to figure ‘it’ out is expensive and ‘never ending’. This ‘bullshit’ we find that bench officers assigned to DIVORCE court have to read and listen to is unique to Los Angeles. Try pulling this crap in a civil court’ Better yet, try this garbage in criminal court. NEVER going to happen, ONLY D I V O R C E court bench officers have to deal with this. Just like the misery and need for vengeance that grows from a DIVORCE, it affects everyone, the lawyers, the evaluators, the monitors, and to some degree the investigators….BULLETIN: Most Bench Officers could care less. Why, you ask? A sitting judge is “The Trier of Fact”. I know that I just threw many a slider here. Let me stop while some of you go and look that term up!

As Joe Koenig, Esq. mentioned to me recently, “I have a job to do” and the judge has a job too, to control his or her court. You will never see Mr. Koenig talking shit about any judge. “I have to adjust to whatever judge I am in front of!” Susan Weisner, Esq. just watch her, she listens to the court and moves on and gets the job done. Ms. Weisner is not going to be derailed by any judge she stands in front of. Ms. Weisner too has managed to test the ‘water’ (of a court) and enter cautiously. Oh I forgot, Mr. Koenig and Ms. Weisner understand the system that is in place and are highly sought after professionals, in the ugly world of DIVORCE, L.A. Style!

For sure, Judge Tamara E. Hall is no shrinking violet and why should she be? A graduate of Golden Gate University in San Francisco, L.A. Deputy D.A., a great career chasing down the scum of the earth and sending them to prison, Judge of the Compton Juvenile Court. Judge Tamara E. Hall, making the City of Los Angeles safe for all of us! And now this champion of justice is sitting listening to the laughable litigants who will never, ever be happy with any decision from a judge assigned to DIVORCE court in Los Angeles.

Congratulations to The Honorable Tamara E. Hall, Judge of the Superior Court. As anyone in the position of making decisions for people who are unable to, it the complaints that tell you, you too are doing ‘God’s Work’……it was never meant to be easy.

What still very high paid DIOVRCE lawyer many are wondering if Alzheimer is not creeping in?
Getting lost in an elevator is funny, unless it is you…..especially for the ‘arrogant one’. Oh, for sure a nice guy but just a little too full of himself. As one of my good friends always calls him, ‘Gonnif ‘.

Another year of fun and games

horseshitmisery

Well, it has been another year of fun and games. Horse shit and misery was still the choice of many that found themselves in the throes of DIVORCE. Judge Thomas Trent Lewis likely gave what I think was the best comment that says it all, “Litigation can turn into liquidation”. You have a hundred dollars, you take $40.00 give the other side $60.00 and walk away. If you don’t? Complete strangers will walk away with the entire
$100.00 and one day you will be scratching your ass wondering ‘what just happened?’ Worse yet, your children will be asking what did mommy and daddy do with all the money and did they really spend $25,000 dollars fighting over a ‘Holiday’?

There are many wonderful men and women who sit (bench officers) in the miserable position of having to deal with DIOVRCE and in the end folks, it is all on you, who will decide your fate, easy or hard. For us, it makes little difference. Recently during an interesting conversation I was told that I was expensive……by a lawyer no less! A lawyer who made a million dollars in just a few months! I laughed. We make a mere fraction of what a lawyer makes and we take all the hits. So, in thinking of what my dear friend said, we are raising our fees for the coming year. $395.00 to $495.00. We just want to live like some of you fat cat lawyers out there. Thank you Patrick!

Dumb and Dumber

Dumb and Dumber

The real issue is that many lawyers in DIVORCE want to suck every dime out of a client for themselves and not hire any experts and instead of surrounding themselves with competence they seek out cheap and dumb. Like serving the wrong person live on TMZ! Another issue is that I don’t give a flying f*&k, 21 plus years in the trenches and here is where we find ourselves! We are blessed to be the choice of some of the best law firms in the country. I am further blessed to consider many friends, Neal, Lisa, Judy, Ros, Anne, Joe, Susan, Joy, Gary, Lisa, Avi, Patrick, Melanie, Adam, Michael, Ron, Joe, Aaron, Chet, Brian, Anita, Mark, Peter, Paul, Mary, Harry, Greg, Armand, Sam, Raul….well I could do this all night! Thank you all and you all know who you are and how special you are to me and those close to me.

BTW, we do not give out goodies till after the holidays. We are special and do not want to have our ‘Thanks’ mixed in with the commoners…..so stand by, they are coming. Little tiny DESPERATEEXES dropping off some fun stuff to those we like, one might say it is a short list!

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!

Attended a few Christmas / Holiday parties and the best hands down was the one thrown by Lisa Helfend Meyer and the wonderful crew at M.O.L.M. Only this group would rent out Shutters on the Beach. Great food, great music and top shelf adult beverages. Lisa, Dana, Doreen, Felicia, Ben and Anne have one direction and that is to the moon, and always first class. Visiting the incredible offices of M.O.L.M. for a ‘legal’ event, (opposing counsel) you can be promised one thing. You may leave miserable but you will be fed well! As for the Holiday bash, it was just the best! The entire crew from M.O.L.M’s new offices in Orange County where also present for the party. It was great to meet the crew who are guiding the expansion of M.O.L.M under the guidance of Lisa and her partners.

Melanie Shornick, Esq.

Melanie Shornick, Esq.

Speaking of up-beat and great lawyers, I am ending my year on DESPERATEEXES.com with a story on someone that I have the greatest respect for and she happens to be a DIVORCE lawyer. She is my friend Melanie Shornick, Esquire. Melanie is an associate at Trope & Trope based here in Los Angeles. Most, and certainly not all, ‘Associates’ are nothing more than folks who passed the BAR and for whatever reason have no desire or sometimes talent to go to court and practice law. Some of these folks sit in horrible office spaces tucked away so as not to be a nuisance and figure out ways to bill hours for the principals of the firms and act as ‘wallets’. Not this one folks. When you ‘meet’ and do the ‘greet’, hope and pray you get Melanie Shornick. Hell, why not ask for her and tell the nice man you read about this incredible lawyer right here on Desperateexes.com. A finer lawyer at this firm will be hard to find, my opinion.

Any ‘litigant’ who is lucky enough to get Melanie Shornick on their side should consider themselves very lucky. And immediately drop to their knees and pray to the DIVORCE god, thanking me. Or you can just call me and tell me how right I was. This associate knows the law and can stand in front of any judge with the best of them in this town and throw those big words around. Strategizing while she is under fire is also a talent and Melanie seems to have mastered this technique too.

Nose anyone?

Nose anyone?

Watching Shornick in court ,and I / we have many times over the years, is like watching a well oiled machine, cool under fire and on top of her game. No waffling here. Never ever have I ever seen her make a fool of herself or not look and sound professional. This also might sound like a given for a lawyer, however, there are lawyers who show up in our cities courts almost everyday that, if not for having a law degree, could pass for ass clowns. I am sorry if this is offensive but the truth, it hurts, and I know it, and sometimes I am there to pass them their big red noses in the form of an entertaining piece on DESPERATEEXES.com. I love passing out noses!

Trope & Trope has several good lawyers on staff, few have the ability of Melanie Shornick. This is a lawyer who really practices law. Melanie has been with Trope since 2006 and if and when she ever decides to close her brief case and search for greener pastures, I think I heard some ‘Bulls Mooing’. There is not one doubt that many firms would leap at the chance to have someone with the ability and talent of Ms. Shornick.
Shornick is in fact, a ‘Super Lawyer’. No, not the one who ‘pays to be a Super Lawyer’, Melanie has too much class to get involved in such a silly pay to play scheme. And why would she? The real deal is what we have in Shornick.

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!

Funny yet is how is it she is not a partner, either at Trope & Trope or for that matter at any other firm? You know I clearly recall that it works that way in the law enforcement community too. The creme of the creme seldom if ever rises to the top………….God is watching! Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and I hope all of you have a great New Year!

I met the Walrus

I_Met_the_Walrus

I recently had the opportunity to meet someone (a lawyer) at an ‘event’ where she and her associate (another lawyer) thought it would be ‘fun’ to serve me papers while the ‘event’ was going on. Feigning needing a break from the proceedings, Chief of Funny was in fact doing nothing more than putting into action plans to get papers to the location and get me served! Funny, right? All on a clients dime that had nothing to do with this event that ‘Team we Got Em’ took of the clients time and thus their money. All to get me served. Hilarious, this is “Law of Funny”. I have never evaded service, and the appropriate thing would have been to speak to me as a professional and to tell me they had papers to serve on me. Simple.

 

finger lickin good

finger lickin good

No, not this day. It was all about the “Law of Funny”. I am sure for the two of these legal beagles, Chief Funny and her companion, was to have me served in such a manner, like a special moment! The best part is I, too, have a sense of humor. Visit DESPERATEEXES.com and some of my videos, I like funny. Well I think I / we are funny too, and have been entertained by lawyers for many years, over 40 years actually.

Enjoy my photo of my new friend. And can I suggest, “Say Cheese” or perhaps that great lyric from the Beatles, “I Am The Walrus”. As I have mentioned to several people, do not moan and groan too much, being on DESPERATEEXES.com can be a great thing for some and for others, just a little harmless fun. Either way, I say wonderful or too bad, the choice is yours.

mmmmmm....cheesey

We at DESPERATEEXES.com tell the truth and look for and find humor in the world of DIVORCE and those that make a damn good living at it. Keep up the good work boys and girls and when you screw up, maybe you too will be on DESPERATEEXES.com, as when I walk into a courtroom some of you sweat and wonder and you should! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
