Legal Triple Dipping Gone Wrong
In the State of New Jersey, an attorney can simultaneously serve as a practicing law firm attorney, serve as an assistant
district attorney and serve as a member or officer of New Jersey’s Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics. The
influence around the State of New Jersey, one of these attorneys holds, is tremendous. Even the federal government looks
the other way…
If one of these influential attorneys is also a friend
of the New Jersey Governor: WOW
Robert D. Correale is one of these ‘lucky’ attorneys.
What happens, if Supreme Court Attorney Ethics official and local D.A. Robert Correale and his law firm,
Maynard & Truland bring a former client to court for an open bill?
Superior Court judge, hearing the case, rules that based on the evidence their open bill case gets thrown out. Their
former client has a right to bring a Legal Malpractice case against Robert Correale and his law firm to the Superior Court
Law Division for damages.
What happens then: The court transcript
goes missing in the courthouse, before it can be typed by the court clerk. (Only in New Jersey).
What adds to the twists and turns is the fact that the former client served in combat in the Marines during
the Vietnam War and is PTSD disabled. And refuses to give up.
