9 july 2011 bar filling against waxman includes all the cummings emails and marco

  1. 1. 9 July 2011Scott DavisPresidentOverseers of the BarManchester MaineDear Mr. Davis;Please accept this letter as another official complaint filed against attorney Michael Waxman.That Mr. Waxman has been allowed such abuse of power and process, that, to date, there hasbeen no oversight for his action, is shocking.Mr. Waxman is, and has been for 3 years, on an obsessive mission to destroy me and my smallchild, Mila, now four years old using his law license and transparent abuse of process and powerto accomplish this. Mr. Waxman is now holding Mila, my daughter, hostage.I have not seen Mila since 10 May, despite retaining joint custody, and extensive visitation. Asthe Bar well knows, Mr. Waxman vowed to take her from me and to use the substantial resourcesof his family to do so, very early on, as the Overseers is aware and has evidence of, and that isexactly what the State of Maine and The Overseers of the Bar have, so far, allowed Mr. Waxmanto do.Will this be stopped? Or will the State of Maine and the Overseers of the Bar allow this out ofcontrol, abusive, obsessed attorney to continue to destroy lives?Mr. Waxman Providing Public Evidence of his Close Relationship with Judge Moskowitz 1. Judge Moskowitz has been unwilling to hold Igor Malenko in contempt of court for such gross violation of a court order which includes keeping my daughter from me for essentially the last four months despite a court order for joint custody. 2. Mr. Waxman, as usual, has been publically proclaiming his close relationship with Judge Moskowitz. Mr. Waxman issued a letter to DHHS [attached] where he says he and his client: "do not trust DHHS to act in the best interests of this little girl. We shall not cooperate in any manner from here forward. Please let me know if you are going to file a Title 22 action, for I shall immediately file pleadings to bring the case before Judge Moskowitz for a full determination." 3. Mr. Waxman had his client, Igor Malenko, bring a false PFH against me when I attempted to pick up Mila for her court ordered summer vacation with me on 21 June 2011. By law, one cannot be charged with a PFH when there is court ordered joint custody and visitation. See: Wiley v. Wiley, 896 A.2d 363 (Me. 2006). 4. After filing this false PFH Mr. Waxman then request that Judge Moskowitz be specially assigned the case. See attached. 1
  2. 2. Mr. Waxmans Action on 21 June 2011 1. On 21 June 2011 Mr. Waxman committed, what I believe to be, are several serious crimes against the State of Maine under Maine Criminal Code 17-A: (1) §456. Tampering with Public Records or Information, (2) §453. Unsworn falsification, (3) §455. Falsifying physical evidence and (4) §751. Obstructing government administration. 2. On 21 June, after not seeing my four year old daughter, Mila, for some 45 days or more, although I have joint legal custody, I went to the home of my daughter’s father. At this point, Mila, age 4, had not been in school for over a month and I had not been told why. Nor had I been told why her father was in contempt of court refusing to allow the court order visitation schedule to occur. Nor had Judge Moskowitz taken any action to stop this gross contempt of court. Governor LePage, himself, called Mila’s school to ask why she had been removed from school. It is important to note, all of this occurred after blunt force trauma by Igor Malenko to Mila’s head with a metal pan and expert opinion on 56ng of meth in my daughter’s urine. 3. Prior to 21 June 2011 Mr. Waxman had continued to send emails to me, although I had told him I had blocked his emails. These emails went into my junk folder. When I finally retrieved these from my junk folder I found many emails where Mr. Waxman, himself, has declared himself judge and jury and Mr. Waxman has placed me on supervised visits with Mila, inviting me to contact Connection for Kids if I want to my daughter. 4. Mr. Waxman then apparently wrote an email on 17 June 2011, sent by Igor Malenko but clearly written by Mr. Waxman, informing me that DHHS had placed me on supervised visits. I was then informed on 20 June 2011 by Mark Dalton, DHHS Program Administrator for York County, that this was a false statement made by Igor Malenko. Please see the following emails listed at the end of this email. 5. On 21 June 2011 I arrived at my daughter’s father’s home, I recorded the interaction and attach it here. My daughter, who has not seen her mother for more than 45 days, screamed Mama! through closed doors and windows when she heard my voice. This is clear on the recording, although the recorder was under my clothing and Mila was screaming for her mother behind closed doors and windows. 6. Igor Malenko and his lawyer Michael Waxman then proceed to lie to the Police Officer who arrived. Mr. Malenko and Mr. Waxman showed the Police Officer an official piece of paper, supposedly from DHHS, saying I was on supervised visits. You can hear the recording of the officer explaining to me that she saw this piece of paper and that I was to call Mark Dalton at DHHS if I wanted to see my daughter. The Officer even wrote Mark Dalton DHHS on a piece of paper and gave it to me. See attached transcript and audio recordings. 2
  3. 3. 7. Retired Sgt. State Trooper Steve Pickering also called South Portland Police and I believe he was also informed that the reporting officer had been shown an “official” piece of paper by Igor Malenko and Mr. Waxman which purported to claim that DHHS had placed me on supervised visits. 8. On 22 June 2011 in a meeting with DHHS Commissioner Mary Mayhew and Mark Dalton, Mr. Dalton again informed me that DHHS had never placed me on supervised visits and there was no such paper issued by DHHS. Mark Dalton said he had questioned Mr. Waxman about this and, I was told by Mark Dalton on 22 June 2011, that Mr. Waxman had denied to Mark Dalton producing any such paper or ever saying anything like this to the police officer. 9. I believe that Michael Waxman’s actions clearly constitute: (1) §456. Tampering with public records or information, (2) §453. Unsworn falsification, (3) §455. Falsifying physical evidence, (4) §751. Obstructing government administration.The Cummings Case 1. The Cummings told me and Retired Sgt. Steve Pickering as well that Mr. Waxman had sent them a letter detailing how he and Rodway could commit insurance fraud and saying at the end of the letter that they Cummings must destroy the letter. They told me they did not destroy it but gave it to Attorney Silan and that it should be in their file at his office. The email chain from the Cummings documents what happened when they tried to get that letter and also what happened when Mr. Waxman discovered I was in contact with the Cummings, which gives every appearance of witness tampering in the extreme. 2. All 10 Cummings emails are attached. They speak for themselves. Mr. Waxman, apparently, reached the Cummings sometime after the last hearing when someone had informed Waxman that I was in discussions with the Cummings. The Cummings last email is clearly extremely suspect and gives every appearance of gross witness tampering. 3. My understanding is there is a judgment [see attached] saying Westport has no liability because Mr. Waxman signed up for insurance after he had Peter Rodway filed this apparently false claim for malpractice against Mr. Waxman. Jeff Thayer Westport lawyer still, and the one who handled the case, says Westport never insured Mr. Waxman. See email. 4. But then, after Mr. Waxman learns about all this, suddenly a Vice President at Swiss Re (now owns Westport) says Westport and Mr. Waxman did work together [see attached]. 5. It is unclear exactly what happened with Mr. Waxman, the Cummings and Westport but it is very clear that something concerning is occurring, with radically different accounts being told by all the players and a $1.2 million settlement at the center of the case [granted by which judge?] of very questionable insurance issues and concerning legal practices. 3
  4. 4. I sincerely hope the Overseers of the Bar and the State of Maine will take these actions veryseriously. As Aria Eee knows, Michael Waxman has a long history of abuse of process andhistory of grossly misusing his law license.As many people and other lawyers told Ms. Eee, Mr. Waxman has literally done what he is doingto me to many other people in Maine. In my case, Mr. Waxman is literally holding my daughterhostage so I cannot walk away and put Mr. Waxmans abuse behind me, as other have had theluxury of doing.Due to the Overseer of the Bar inability to hold Mr. Waxman accountable so far to the mostbasic provision of the Bar, Mr. Waxman now believes he can do anything he likes, evenmisrepresenting a government agency and lying to law enforcement.Will Mr. Waxman be held accountable or will he be allowed to continue to use his Maine lawlicense as a weapon and a menace to society and continue his obsessive destruction of me andmy daughter and our lives and the lives of countless others?Sincerely,Lori Handrahan, Ph.D.207-812-019152 Waukeag AveSorrento Maine 04677 4

[]Sent: Monday, June 20, 2011 3:42 PMTo: lorihandrahan5@gmail.comSubject: UpdateImportance: HighDear Lori-I would like the opportunity to clarify a few things. My goal in calling you last Friday wassimply an attempt to start a dialogue between the parents in supporting your daughter and to seeif in any way I could help navigate contact. In no way was I intending for you or anyone else tobelieve that you were obligated to DHHS visitation supervised or otherwise. I would still likethe opportunity to meet with you in person. I realize under the circumstances they may prove tobe difficult, however I want you to know this is an option and would be happy to accommodateyour schedule.I would also like you to be aware that a formal letter will be sent to you surrounding our currentinvolvement and the results of this most recent assessment. Ms. Austin will be sending this letterin the next few days.Thank you for listening to me and I look forward to hearing from you.Sincerely,Mark DaltonChild Welfare Program Administrator-York County207-286-2529______________________________________________________________________________From: igor malenko []Sent: Friday, June 17, 2011 2:12 PMTo: lorihandrahan5@gmail.comCc: mjwaxy@aol.comSubject: RE: summer vacation schedule I will pick Mila up today around 4 at your home orScratch BakeryImportance: HighLori, 5
  6. 6. Michael has spoken with Mark Dalton from DHHS (Rebecca Austins boss) and he has learnedthat DHHS is unsubstantiating your latest, false claims about me, and that DHHS supports meusing my decision-making authority to deny you any unsupervised visitation. Mr. Dalton calledyou but you have refused to speak with him or call him back. At our suggestion, he will bereaching out to you to offer visitation with Mila over the weekend, supervised by DHHS. It isvery sad that Mila has not seen you or heard your voice or had any communication with you inover a month. I dont understand why you arent making an effort to let her know you love herand are thinking about her. In any case, no one here supports you and your efforts to drag Milaaway from me. No one. If you want to see her, then please call Mark Dalton back and arrangeit. I am sure she would love to see you. I am also sure she is very happy for not having to gotrough more of your abusive practices.______________________________________________________________________________From: igor malenko []Sent: Friday, June 17, 2011 8:11 AMTo: lorihandrahan5@gmail.comCc:;;;; dean.staffieri@maine.govSubject: RE: summer vacation schedule I will pick Mila up today around 4 at your home orScratch BakeryImportance: HighYou are not welcome here and if you show up, the following will occur: -- the police will arriveand you will be served, finally, with the Motion to Modify and the Motion for Contempt, andyou will then be removed from my property with a summons for criminal trespass.No unsupervised visits will occur with Mila until the court addresses this issue-I have been veryclear about this.

Mr.Ramos and Ms. Savona are not involved in the liability insurance portion of the business or in Westportmatters.I have reviewed the documentation and can assure you that the settlement you referenced is one thatWestport was aware, participated in, and signed, and that the underlying matter is closed and has beenfor some time. Westports only interest in this matter would be as respects claims made againstWestports policy when it was in effect. I cannot discuss further due to confidentiality.If you are aware of any evidence of fraud by plaintiffs in the Cummings v.

I think I will have Jim call Silans officetomorrow morning and tell them we want to be present when those boxes are unsealed. Doyou think my questions were valid points? Our understanding was we were paid by Westportand the attorneys that were there from Chicago were representatives of Westport InsuranceCompany. I wonder if Jeff Thaler ever saw the check that was supposed to be issued to us fromWestport, since he was at the mediation? I can see plainly now, I need to do someinvestigation work also.

MarshSubject: FW: who was the judge that signed that 1.25 million?James/Deb, Do you know the answer to this?From: Debbi Cummings []Sent: Sunday, January 09, 2011 2:33 PMTo: Lori HandrahanSubject: Re: who was the judge that signed that 1.25 million?Dear Lori,The only attorneys that we ever met with were Michael Waxman first, then Barry Schklair, thebankruptcy attorney, who steered us to Steven Silin. The bankruptcy occurred in 2006, so Silin did comeinto all of this either the end of 2005, or beginning of 2006. I know we went to court about themalpractice against Waxman in July and had to appear before a judge, and he is the one who awardedus the 1.25. Im looking at the summary judgment and it says the U. S. Magistrate Jude was Margaret J.Kravchuk and this case was assigned to Judge Gene Carter, and that name does ring a bell in ourheads. You can see this entire transcript on line, District of Maine, Cummings v. Westport InsuranceCompany Civil No. 05-206-P-C. Hopes this helps. Its only about 12 pages long, and I just printed it outfor my own records. Look it over and see what you think.DebFrom: Debbi Cummings []Sent: Sunday, January 09, 2011 2:14 PMTo: Lori HandrahanSubject: Re: and is Waxman still liable for the 1.25 if Cummings settled? I think not--right?Dear Lori,I found the paperwork of when we received our settlement check from Berman & Simmons.The copy of the check only shows our net settlement of $72, 963.07. The gross amount was$150,000.00, and I have the breakdown of how it was allocated. When we picked up the checkin their Lewiston office, Attorney Silin was not "available", his secretary met us in the waitingarea and we both had to sign for the funds. We did sign a release at that time and I have a copyof those documents. (not sure what exactly that release was for, I.e. just for the check or otherreasons). We never saw the check that was issued to Berman & Simmons, supposedly fromWestport Insurance Co. Is it possible that the original check that went to Berman & Simmonswas a substantially larger amount? Good question, right? One palm greases the other, so tospeak. I have a call into my friend, the attorney, and hopefully he will call me back. I need toknow what my rights are to obtain those 2 boxes of material that went to Silins office, whichincludes that letter from Michael Waxman that told us to sue him for malpractice. I do nothave that letter in my possession now. 11
  12. 12. On a confidential note, my friends name is Ricky L. Brunette, maybe your lawyer friend knowshim. I think hes an upstanding guy, but I only know him on a friend to friend basis. He didrepresent me in an auto accident claim back in the 80s. At that time, I signed the check that hegot from the womens insurance company that rear-ended me, which was made out to Rickysfirm and myself. After signing, he then issued me a check after his fee, but I at least got a copyof the original check. Why not from Silin? Really makes me question Silins practices now.Let me know what you think. Maybe your friend also would have some input, and I will let youknow if I hear anything from my friend.God Speed and keep plugging along, Lori. You have friends who are praying for you!Debbi and Jim CummingsFrom: Lori HandrahanSent: Sunday, January 09, 2011 11:38 AMTo: jcummings96522@roadrunner.comSubject: FW: and is Waxman still liable for the 1.25 if Cummings settled?

Marsh; Lori HandrahanSubject: Re: who was the judge that signed that 1.25 million?Dear Lori,I am going to try to attach a pdf file of the District Court document that says Gene Carter was theassigned judge. We never went into the courtroom again after that award. The next thing thathappened was a mediation with Attorney Silin, the mediator, 2 attorneys from Chicago (or at least onewas from Chicago) and the local attorney from Berstein, Shur, and Sawyer. The mediators reaction toWestports proposed amount was shock to say the least. He told us after that mediation, that he wasexpecting no less than $600,000. to $650,000. After a couple of hours the entire mediation went downthe tubes. The day of the award, our trial was interrupted for over an hour, because the Judge was alsothe Judge for the Srey murder trial about the Gorham boy who was killed at Dennys in Portland. Thismay confirm Gene Carter or at least give the name of the Judge that presided over our case. I hope theattached documents may give you a clue. I am not a legalese, by any stretch of the imagination, somaybe your friend can interpret. Im still waiting for my friend to call back, but, I do think he has retired,so may be in a warmer climate for the winter months. I called his Scarborough number, since that is all Ihave.Let me know if you get this attached pdf file.Debbi 12
  13. 13. From: Debbi Cummings []Sent: Tuesday, January 11, 2011 9:52 PMTo: Lori HandrahanSubject: Boxes from Attorney SilinDear Lori,Please accept my apology for not getting back to you sooner, I had a family emergency regarding mysister. Jim called Silins office today and played it very cool by telling the secretary we were in theprocess of getting medical records and legal records for a possible move in the near future. The boxesare stored off site, as I suspected, but she is going to call us tomorrow and we are going to do our verybest to get them on Thursday if they have been gotten from the off site storage facility. Of course, asyou know, our main concern is getting our hands on that letter from Waxman that tells us to sue himand he then sent us to Peter Rodway for representation. Rodway, did, however, back out and that iswhy there was such a lapse in our lawsuit. Im sure we will also find out the name of the judge thatordered the 1.25. I am praying that we can get it on Thursday. I will go through every piece of paper tofind that letter, and hopefully it will be of help to you.Im not sure whether we would be able to be at the courthouse on Friday, but, if I find that letter, I willscan it and send it to you to give to your attorney. It should, at very least, show how fraudulent this SOBis. I am still having a hard time fathoming how this idiot is getting away with all this crap. I guess the oldadage that money talks, and bullshit walks is true. His money seems to speak volumes.When Jim talked with that young lady at Silins office today, she did remember working on this case forhim, but gave Jim the impression that Silin doesnt need to know we are requesting our boxes, since shetold Jim that we have every right to take them, since they belong to us. Lets hope that nothing hasbeen tampered with in any way.I will send you off an email as soon as we hear from her tomorrow and hopefully it will all be good news!Im praying for you and Mila, Lori. God Bless you and please keep the faith.DebbiFrom: Debbi Cummings []Sent: Wednesday, January 12, 2011 5:55 PMTo: Lori HandrahanSubject: Just between you and meDear Lori,I continue to be so baffled by a judicial system that seemingly just dont care about the welfare of aninnocent little girl. I have to tell you, and its hard putting into words, how much I admire your tenacityand all the leg work you have done. I personally think that I would have shot those two SOBs by now, orat very least, been looking into where I could flee to get that sweet baby away from them. Your friend isso right, this is like a true life made for TV movie! I dont know your age, dear, but surmise you must bein the same age bracket as one of my girls, who both have 2 children, and I have to tell you, I would be 13
  14. 14. honored to call you my daughter. I can picture both of my girls fighting for their children, just as you aredoing for your sweet little Mila.You must have incredible strength and you are obviously very intelligent and I for one, certainly applaudyou. You go girl! I hope they find a way to lock those two up for the rest of their miserable lives, so thatyou can give Mila her ballet, singing lessons and she gets to play soccer, anything she wants. She iscertainly entitled to be free from all that crap and should be allowed to live like any other little girl of herage. She deserves to be happy and healthy and not endure what those men are putting her through.I will certainly inform you when we get those boxes, and pray we find that letter. Please do let us knowhow things go in court on Friday, and my prayers are with you and Mila everyday and night!God Bless and you keep that strength going!DebbiFrom: Debbi Cummings []Sent: Thursday, January 13, 2011 8:10 PMTo: James R. Marsh; Lori HandrahanSubject: Re: Requested boxesI have a suspicion that those boxes have already been tampered with, long before they were sealedafter our case was settled. I will have Jim request that we be there when they are "logged". The morewe delve into this, it seems, the more discrepancies we are finding. Supposedly, Mr. Waxman has notbeen represented by Westport Insurance since 2005, per Jeff Thaler, we never settled until October of2006 and received the check in November of 2006. I definitely have a feeling that Waxman and Silandid, in fact, know each other and made some sort of deal. They both knew we were in dire straits, I.e.our bankruptcy was on the verge of going forward. I hope we can untangle this web of lies and perjuriesthat Waxman has created.Keep in touch Lori, and I will do the same. Good luck in court tomorrow, our prayers are with you andMila.Debbi & JimFrom: Lori Handrahan []Sent: Thursday, January 13, 2011 6:22 PMTo: Debbi CummingsCc: James R.

They have offices in Lewiston and Portland.There is an 800 number and then the Portland number. 1-800-244-3576 and Portland is 774-5277.Should we tip them off or just see what is presented to us? Maybe Attorney Marsh could guide us. Ipray to God that letter hasnt already been destroyed! Let me know.Good luck tomorrow Lori and know that Jim and I are praying for you and Mila.DebbiFrom: Debbi Cummings []Sent: Thursday, January 13, 2011 2:07 PMTo: Lori HandrahanSubject: Requested boxesDear Lori,The young lady (she is a paralegal) just called back from Attorney Silins office in reference to the boxesof materials we requested. Now she gave the impression that we could pick them up today and therewasnt much of a need to seek Silins approval. When I just spoke to her, she said that she had not beenable to sit with Silin and "log" everything out that we would be getting back. She said she would have tocontact us on Monday of next week and set up a day, probably Tuesday or Wednesday for us to pickthem up. This makes me a bit uncomfortable as to why everything needs to be "logged". Why wouldthey have to log out everything when they put most of it in there? Hmmmm? The first thing thatpopped into my mind is this: When Silin first got those boxes, Im sure everything had to be logged in asto what was in those boxes. Once the case was settled my impression would be that those boxes weresealed, labeled and sent to the off site storage facility. If that be the case, why, if the seal has not beenbroken, would the seal have to be broken to "log" out those materials? Why also, did this woman notidentify herself as Silins paralegal on Monday, but she identified herself as so today? And why was Jimtold that it was all our personal property on Monday, not have to be gone through by Silin and theparalegal, but today the entire scenario has changed? Something is rotten in Denmark, so to speak.The more we delve into this case, the more rotten it smells. Im thinking there should be at least 3boxes now, since Silins materials should be included with the 2 previous boxes. It will be veryinteresting to see how this material ends up being condensed. I certainly dont have the funds for anattorney, and as we know, which one would we be able to pick in this state that might not be connectedto Michael Waxman. He has certainly woven a very tangled web indeed. 15
  16. 16. I hope Im not rambling Lori, however, it certainly looks like they were connected and possibly "on thetake" along with some judges. I would love to hear what your take is on all this. You have much morelegalese than I do, definitely not my line of expertise, since I was an accountant all my working career.My prayers are with you and Mila. Stay strong and know that we are with you everyday.Debbi_____________________________________________________________________________From: Debbi Cummings []Sent: Sunday, January 16, 2011 7:24 PMTo: Lori Handrahan; Jeffery A ThalerSubject: Your case against Michael WaxmanLori,As you probably surmised very early on, Im a very emphatic person. When you told me your plight withyour daughter, especially since I have 2 daughters and 2 granddaughters, I was sorry to hear all that wasgoing on. Friday, I came down with a flu that made me very sick. Something you did not know aboutme is that I had a gastric by-pass surgery many years ago, and have an extremely sensitive stomach.Due to this condition, when Im sick, Im not able to take my pain meds, and the meds that the doctorhas me on are very powerful and make me groggy and I have a tendency to ramble on, along withnostalgia. Today, with a clear head, I re-read emails from you and my responses back to you and I washorrified! I seemed to have given you the wrong impression about Michael Waxman. The man nevermistreated Jim and I in any way, nor do we feel that we were not represented properly to the best of hisabilities. You also did not know that we are in the process of re-located to a warmer climate, therefore,we were already requested personal legal and medical records.I feel like you are on a mission to destroy Michael Waxmans career and anyone else that gets in yourway, and Jim and I have no intention, nor did we ever, to excoriate anyone for your purposes. We wererepresented by Attorney Silan in a very professional and courtesy manner also, and have no intention ofalienating people that tried their best on our behalf.As you may, or may not know, Jim had a very large spinal surgery in November and we have both beenon potent pain medications, and quite frankly, our focus is on his healing. I am a breast cancer survivor,but have more medical tests to be done before I have any sort of diagnosis on my own medical issuesthat Im being treated for now.I wish you luck in your endeavors, but please do not contact us via email or telephone again. Jim and Iboth feel you found 2 people who were nice and you took advantage of us, sensing we were totally laypeople in reference to anything legal and you played that card to snooker us into your personalproblems. After re-reading those emails, I can see how you maneuvered things your way and we wantno part of any of it, and firmly includes your phone message statement of "If I were you, I would call theGovernor and AGs office", you must be kidding! Had I not been taking those maintenance drugs thatIm required to take, I would not have talked to a total stranger about anything personal, especiallysomething of a legal nature. Jim and I are private people, we mind our business, pay our dues, and stay 16
  17. 17. to ourselves and are not in the habit of talking about anyone. You have a way of manipulating anddrawing information out of people, especially when they are at a disadvantage. Well, it stops now!I have forwarded a copy of this letter to Mr. Thaler, so there will be no misunderstanding of ourintentions and you will not be able to misconstrue what Im saying to you.Again, please, we do not want any more communication from you, nor will you ever hear from us again.Respectfully,James & Deborah Cummings ### 17
