There are many untrue/misleading communications made in documents and online about ME that, until now, have been unanswered by ME.  


I have put together this ‘Statements of Certitude” to serve as my answer to these untrue/misleading communications. 


I also encourage you to so your own due diligence as well.   




1. Any reference to the Law Society of Ontario Suspension: Let me start by saying this: “The Loyalty I Have For My Client Is Greater Than Any Harm That Can Be Done To Me”. What Happened in Ontario? I was administratively suspended in 2016 from the practice of law in Ontario by the Law Society of Ontario (Law Society of Upper Canada). The Law Society called it "professional misconduct". I call it "protecting my clients". When the Law Society, after my asking numerous times, failed to provide me with any good enough reasons for wanting my client files (under the guise of some sort of 'investigation'), I refused to give these client files over to them, and for this action of refusal, they punished me. It is my inherent belief that my client files were, are, and always will be PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL (the files represent my Client's Personal, Business and Confidential Informaton), and I will not provide this, my client’s information, to any governing body OR anyone else for that matter, without some sort of court order forcing me to do so. The states of New York and Michigan bar associations are informed of this administrative suspension in Ontario AND I am currently licensed and active to practice law in Michigan and New York in good standing.  


2. Any reference to Global News, any other online news reporting agencies and/or Lawsuits against ME or involving 1PLUS12: I am a service provider to 1PLUS12. 1PLUS12 is an exemplary company providing members with numerous benefits. They have executives, as well as many clients, and some of these executives/clients (a small group) are unhappy with 1PLUS12 for one reason or another. That (unhappy executives/clients and/or complaints) is just part of being in business. These unhappy executives/clients filed false reports online, false reports with news reporting agencies and/or filed lawsuits against ME and/or 1PLUS12 and named me. My opinion and prediction is that these reports/lawsuits are frivolous and will fail in the Courts. Many have already failed in the Courts. Global News, for example, has ALREADY printed a retraction. Further, my opinion is that a small group of people in the background (lets call them ‘bad actors’) are, either alone, one or more, or conspiring together, to report online untruths about me, injure and defame my name, my business, my livelihood, and the same for 1PLUS12 and its owners, and they (these bad actors) will one day be brought to justice.  




I really relate to the following comment posted on a website I was browsing called “Translators Café”.   SO TRUE, SO TRUE.



People are going to say what they want about you, your goals, or your dream. So, let them. Tune them out. Some will rain on your parade because they don’t have one. Larry Winget, author of People Are Idiots and I Can Prove It , clearly proves this concept in his book. Some people will be idiots and try to get in your way, block you, guilt you, pull you down, and [step on] your every positive effort and move. It is in your personal power and attitude to defy and silence the barking dogs of the present and the ones in the past that perhaps pop up from time to time……   


My Commitment to YOU: If ANYONE wishes to speak to me regarding any of the untrue/misleading communications about me they come across, please email me at and I will set up a telephone conversation with you to discuss whatever it is you want to discuss.  


Thank you for reading/listening.
