I lose it, when it comes to my New Jersey corruption crap. I've been in this battle with the State of New Jersey for over six years now.
My New Jersey corruption charges center around a corrupt New Jersey law firm (MAYNARD &
TRULAND) that used its tremendous state-wide/court-wide influence to suppress Legal Malpractice charges against
them. One of the corrupted lawyers of the firm (Robert Correale) had a second job working for the State of New Jersey.
Robert Correale happened to be Vice-Chairman of New Jersey's Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics.
It's been a Vietnam PTSD veteran against a New Jersey Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics Vice-Chairman
the entire uphill battle. I've been tag-teamed by Maynard & Truland's corrupted lawyers and their
corrupted friends in the New Jersey State Courts, New Jersey Governor's Office and his Attorney General Office.
I've been handling my charges PRO SE, because there is NOT a lawyer in
New Jersey who would go against New Jersey's Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics... especially a Vice-Chairman.
(That's like career-suicide.)
Back in 2003, my Legal Malpractice evidence beat Maynard & Truland and Robert Correale in NJ Superior Court, but when I asked for this court transcript to use in a higher level of Superior Court, the
transcript could not be typed for release, because the reporter's notes went strangely missing. Since
I didn't have the transcript from the lower court, the Law Division judge threw my civil case out for a lack of
Because of the missing court transcript, later, the New Jersey Superior Court Appellate Division
threw my case out for the same lack of merit and placed a gag order on me. The Superior Court judges supplied me
with no reasonable accommodations for serving PRO SE, or the fact I was disabled with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
My legal malpractice evidence is the law firm's own contact and invoices and many New Jersey Supreme Court and Superior
Court documents and filed letters. I also have my Veterans Affairs (VA) medical records to show the impact this saga
has had on my disability and my family.
It's been a six year ongoing cover-up. But it is well-documented. It's
been a battle, but with the internet, I'm starting to get some verbal support and it's giving me some hope that
I'll finally get my Due Process.
Department of Justice (DOJ) insists that I deal with the State of New Jersey. However, the State of New Jersey does
not answer my communications to them.

NEW JERSEY STATE COVER-UP
At the source of the Cover-Up is the Law Firm: Maynard & Truland of Morristown,
After one of their attorneys committed Gross Negligence, the firm’s partners
Joe Truland and James Maynard (Without my, the client's permission) switched attorney responsibility of the law case to another
Maynard & Truland attorney, Robert Correale, who happened to be the Vice-Chairman of New Jersey’s Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics.
Robert Correale went on to commit a number of ethics violations of his own: False Billing and Over-Charging are just two.

Superior Court Transcript
Goes Missing Before It Was Typed For the Superior Court Law Division. Why it happened, and why nothing was done to correct
How a Supreme Court Vice-Chairman of Attorney Ethics was allowed to mock an honorable veteran’s PTSD disability in
his sworn Attorney Ethics Certifications...
Was the discharge of the Legal Malpractice civil case in New Jersey Superior
Court part of the Cover-Up? The missing Superior Court Transcript of Judge Ronald Graves was the centerpiece of the case discharge.
Why the Superior Court System placed a Gag Order on John Cunningham?
How was the Maynard & Truland law firm able
to use so much influence in both the Supreme and Superior Court systems of New Jersey without question?
three years of evidence letters and phone calls to New Jersey’s Governors and Attorney Generals, why was an investigation
not started outside the Office of Attorney Ethics?
After over three years of evidence letters to federal and New Jersey
State politicians and government officials, why does an honorable, disabled PTSD Veteran still have to battle alone?
of the Cover-up within the Office of Attorney Ethics. Who was involved, when?
Superior Court Judge Karen Russell handling
of the civil case in the Law Division.
After Maynard & Truland law firm had John Cunningham fall into default due
to their own gross negligence, why did it take three months to complete the default removal?
WHY WERE NO REASONABLE
DISABILITY ACCOMMODATIONS GIVEN TO JOHN CUNNINGHAM FOR HIS PTSD DISABILITY?
Please phone the Office of the Solicitor General Paul D. Clement at

These New Jersey State government corruption charges have
been dragged out by the State of New Jersey for six years now. Do you think the State of New Jersey has been able
to get away with this cover-up, because Jack Cunningham is disabled with PTSD? Please read the details and

NJ Superior Court
Transcript went missing before it could be typed by the Superior Court clerk.
Have you ever heard of anything
so strange? This court transcript was going to be used by Jack Cunningham in a Superior Court Law Division Legal
Malpractice civil case against Vice-Chairman Robert Correale, a high level New Jersey State Attorney Ethics Official. It was also going to be used in a formal New
Jersey Supreme Court Attorney Ethics investigation against Robert Correale and his Law Firm, Maynard and Truland. Because this evidence was lost (destroyed), both New Jersey Courts were
able to throw out both of Jack Cunningham's cases and now Robert Correale,Esq. is a district attorney of Vernon Township and Andover Township, New Jersey.

DISABLED VETERAN, WHO IS FIGHTING STATE CORRUPTION, NEEDS YOUR HELP...
For almost six (6) years now, it has been a battle to
get my due process from New Jersey’s court systems, New Jersey’s Office of Attorney Ethics,
Jersey’s Attorney General and New Jersey’s governor’s office.
These state officials set the legal and political climate for
the whole State of New Jersey.
Being more interested in preventing damage to its public, professional and national image, the State of
New Jersey openly chooses to violate a disabled PTSD veteran’s civil right to due process. At the center of this storm is the New Jersey Supreme Court’s Office of
Considering the power the Office of Attorney Ethics wields around the state, simple committee members can easily
deflect legal malpractice controversies away from their law firms. My evidence is clear how 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.
Besides openly committing perjury to NJ Supreme
Court, Robert Correale went on to commit a number of ethics violations on his own. False
billing and Overcharging are just two of these ethics violations. (PLEASE PRESS HERE TO SEE SOME EVIDENCE)
do this because he knew that he was above the law in the State of New Jersey.
It turned out that General-practice attorney Robert Correale
was Vice-Chairman of the New Jersey Office of Attorney Ethics, when an important Superior Court Transcript went missing before
it could be typed by a court reporter.
VETERAN DENIED HIS CIVIL RIGHT TO DUE PROCESS
Robert Correale, Esq, his Law Firm, MAYNARD
& TRULAND and their state government supporters participated in what can only be described as deplorable malfeasance.
These corrupt lawyers should be disbarred for "multiple
counts of egregious misconduct, especially offering false testimony in Superior Court documents and open court, as well
as in sworn documents to the New Jersey Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics.
Freshman U.S. Senator Robert Menendez Fights State Corruption And Supports A Disabled Veteran's
Civil Rights. Senator Frank R. Lautenberg supports a PTSD disabled veteran's request for United States Attorney
General Gonzales to investigation the same state corruption and Civil Rights Issue.

be finally getting my Due Process. I pray that U.S. Attorney General Gonzales opens up an investigation.
Six years is a long time for a veteran to battle for something that every American has as a Civil Right.

staff have been interested, caring and understanding. I hope Senator Menedez gets results from the New Jersey
Attorney General. My evidence is clear.
Over these five (5) years,
many New Jersey politicians and officials have played dumb with my letters. They know my evidence and complaints are
valid. My letters have never come back in return mail, so I'm sure they were delivered. Many
of my letters were sent certified-return-receipt. Still, I've received few replies, and those replies have never answered
my questions. My questions are straight forward.
I really appreciate Senate
Robert Menendez's attempt to have New Jersey's Attorney General investigate my corruption complaints. For over
three years, I've been trying to get New Jersey's Attorney General to start an investigation within the Attorney General's
office. In the past, the Office of New Jersey's Attorney General has only forwarded my letters and evidence
back into the same New Jersey State departments and state agencies that have Conflicts of Interest with my complaints.

I've updated my webpage
with more evidence. (Some recent evidence as well as old evidence.) I posted a letter dating back to April

How long does the federal
government expect a disabled PTSD veteran to battle for his civil rights? I have attached two simple letters of evidence for your review. The first letter, I sent to Director David E. Johnson and his staff in the New Jersey Supreme Court’s
Office of Attorney Ethics and New Jersey’s Attorney General around April 12, 2003. And the second letter,
I just received from the Office of Attorney Ethics’ Director David E. Johnson.
(I still have not received answers to my questions to Director David Johnson and his staff in my April 2003 letter.)
The first letter is clear
(and so has each of my other letters in the three years, since I wrote the Office)
that PTSD is an emotionally and physically painful disability. My letters have
also been clear that the State of New Jersey’s Cover-Up of corruption
is open and unnecessary harassment of my PTSD disability.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
(PTSD) does impact a sufferer’s ability to concentrate, but it does not impact a sufferer’s intelligence. My letters have been clear enough to Supreme Court Officials that Robert Correale
was from Morris/Sussex Counties District X. Yet, for some unknown reasons, my
letters have not been clear enough to Supreme Court Officials that Robert Correale was their VICE-CHAIRMAN of District
X. The Office of Attorney Ethics has already went through a feeble investigation. I can understand these on-going
mistakes from the first level of clerical management in the Supreme Court Office, but I can not understand these ongoing mistakes

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
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
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.)
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
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
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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…
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.
John “Jack” Cunningham
| On December 21, 2000, I first wrote a letter to the New Jersey Supreme Court's Office of Attorney
Ethics complaining about the Maynard & Truland law firm in Morristown, New Jersey and their attorney Robert Correale.
Maynard & Truland was a law firm that I retained to represent me in a Superior court case. We were four months into
the contract, so I did not want to change the law firm; I just wanted Maynard & Truland and their attorney Robert Correale
to act professionally. My complaints in the letter were Maynard & Truland's complete lack of professionalism,
which included their gross negligence, their (Correale) overcharging me, their (Correale) false billing, their (Correale)
inability to have me removed from a court default that they caused themselves and their (Correale) complete lack of communications.
I no longer wanted to feel like I was fighting Maynard & Truland and their attorney Robert Correale, more than the real
I opened my letter to NJ Supreme Court's Office of Attorney Ethics explaining that I was
a veteran from the Vietnam War and that I was disabled with PTSD, due to heavy combat from living and serving (24/7) in a
Vietnamese peasant village. I added that I suffered from chronic pain resulting from a terrorist bomb blast that I received
in the village. I highlighted how Maynard & Truland's lack of professionalism was greatly exacerbating my PTSD
and chronic pain. At the time, I was not looking for anything other than Maynard & Truland to represent me
in a professional manner, yet understand I suffered from veterans disabilities. With the letter, I included a federal
Veterans Affairs (VA) diagnose statement as well as VA medical progress reports, which clearly stated the impact Maynard &
Truland ethics violations were having on my disabilities. I also supplied letters that I sent Maynard & Truland's
attorneys begging them to act professionally. I supplied all this personal information in the hope the State of New
Jersey would provide me with some reasonable disability accommodations and insure that the law firm acted professionally.
Six days later, the Secretary of District X Ethics
Committee, Bonnie C. Frost wrote a return letter that stated, due to New Jersey Court rules, their office could not do anything
to help me. She added I was free to get advice from another attorney.
Whether it was warranted or
not, the Office of Attorney Ethics - District X's lack of support just added to the anxiety and even opened the door for
Maynard & Truland to continue ongoing ethics violations. Their over-charging, false billing, negligence, lack of
communications continued. At one point a Maynard & Truland attorney arrived unprepared at Superior Court for an
arbitration, and I was forced to represent myself as their attorney sat quietly to my left. I ended up getting
charged over $600 for the attorney just sitting there. (Even this, he charged at the inflated rate.)
over two years later, when I refused to pay their open bill, Maynard & Truland attorneys brought me to Superior court
for $1,700. I counter sued on the same docket for Legal Malpractice against the firm. During a break in the court
proceedings, I learned that the Maynard & Truland attorney Robert Correale was the local Vice Chairman of New Jersey's
Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics. He was himself responsible for bringing official ethics violations to New Jersey's
Supreme Court for himself and his law firm, Maynard & Truland. This was the same Attorney Ethics Committee that
I asked to support me two years before. (Major Conflict of Interest)
The detailed evidence, I supplied the
Superior Court Judge Ronald Graves on the Open Bill/Legal Malpractice case that day was enough for the judge to decide against
Vice-Chairman of Attorney Ethics Robert Correale and his law firm. Their open bill charges were dropped and the judge
determined that my charges of legal malpractice warranted (merited) the Superior Court Law Division for damages.
When I brought the Legal Malpractice case to Superior Court Law Division, Judge Ronald Graves court transcript was missing
and could not be typed. It actually disappeared. My Superior Court Law Division Legal Malpractice case against
the Maynard & Truland law firm and Vice-Chairman of the New Jersey Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics Robert Correale
was then thrown out of Superior Court for lack of merit. How convenient was this...
Vice-Chairman of Attorney
Ethics Robert Correale and his fellow Maynard & Truland attorneys were later cleared by the Office of Attorney Ethics,
when they swore to written Certifications to the New Jersey Supreme Court, which were filled with perjurious, misleading and
This Superior Court transcript went missing in 2003. The State of New Jersey is still looking
for it. Although, I have written numerous letters to the federal Department of Justice requesting they assist me in
getting my Civil Rights and Due Process from the State of New Jersey, the Department of Justice insists this is a New Jersey
issue and they refuse to help. My years of certified letters to New Jersey governors, attorney generals, NJ federal
senators, NJ court systems go unanswered.
In 2010, the Cover-Up still goes on... Former Vice-Chairman
Robert Correale, his former attorneys at Maynard & Truland and those politicians and state government officials, who protected
them for almost ten years, stay above state and federals laws.
Currently, my State Senator Steven Oroho has been
investigating this and has been since November 2008. I'm also trying to get my federal Congressman Scott Garrett
involved in getting me my Due Rights and charging the State of New Jersey with denying me my civil rights for almost ten years
and the violating the Americans with Disabilities Act for not giving me reasonable disability accommodations in the New Jersey
Supreme and Supreme Court systems.
This still remains the biggest topic of my Veterans Affairs (VA) therapy sessions and the exacerbation of my PTSD
and chronic pain continues. But the one thing I know, I won't give up trying to get justice from the federal
and state government.
I never want to see this
happen again to another PTSD vet or regular citizen.
John "Jack" Cunningham
Proud Vietnam Veteran
and his wife, Joan
On March 11, 2008, my wife
and I went to the F.B.I. office in Newark, New Jersey.
To be honest, I felt I was stonewalled by the two agents, who I spoke with from Public Corruption
Squad 8. The lead agent refused to review my
evidence, unless I had original documents with me. He told me I could have typed the documents myself.
Three of the documents were New Jersey Supreme Court Attorney Ethics Certifications,
along with Maynard & Truland's Contract and Invoices). When I asked the federal agent, if it was
a crime for me to make up false evidence and lie to F.B.I. agents, he didn’t answer me.
discussion went down hill from there. However, I did get the two agents to review part of my evidence, including
the part that they thought I may have typed myself (The New Jersey Supreme Court Attorney
Ethics Certifications, along with Maynard & Truland's Contract and Invoices).
When I asked the lead F.B.I. agent, if my Civil Rights to Due Process were being
violated, he said no. I also asked, if the State of New Jersey should have given me "Reasonable Disability
Accommodations" for my PTSD. He just repeated that no federal laws were broken.
Since the agents refused to review the New Jersey Supreme Court Attorney Ethics
Certifications, along with Maynard & Truland's Contract and Invoices, because they were not the originals, I
actually had to play make-believe.
They looked through
part of the Certifications of James Maynard & Robert Correale and compared it to the Maynard & Truland's Contract. The
F.B.I. agent admitted that all three contradicted each other when it came to the law firm's billing and Retainer paragraphs.
Without farther information, the agent said the Maynard & Truland contract was wrong.
After the agent examined Robert Correale's certification pertaining to the day he first started work on my case and compared
it to his law firm's invoice's start-work date, the agent brought up again that I may have typed the documents myself.
What knocked me almost out of my chair was when the agent
told me that Superior Court transcripts can get lost before they can be typed. Just because Judge Ronald
Graves' transcript went missing does not mean it is part of a Cover-Up. Details at:
In the end, I was told that my corruption charges against the State of New Jersey were for civil court in the State
of New Jersey. Since no federal crimes were being broken by New Jersey State officials
and politicians, I had to deal with the State of New Jersey. When I informed the agents that the New Jersey
Governor’s office and his Attorney General’s office do not even answer my certified letters, I was again
informed that they are not breaking any federal laws.
The below letter was sent to U.S. Senator Robert Menendez and a number of other
U.S. senators and congressmen/congresswomen in September 2006. Senator John McCain was the only response I received.
His letter stated that I must deal with my New Jersey federal senators. Senator Robert Menendez and his staff
have never answered this letter and have never placed anything in writing. ( Senator Robert Menendez phone: 202-224-4744 ) New Jersey Governor Jon
Corzine continues to not answer my numerous letters to him.
The federal Department of Justice, including the F.B.I.,
insist that I must deal with the State of New Jersey. The saga continues.

the federal government and the State of New Jersey.
PLEASE PASS THIS REQUEST AROUND TO
YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS WHO USE THE INTERNET.
The below letter was sent to U.S. Senator Robert
Menendez in May 2006, but he made no attempt to get the questions in the letter answered.
He did his part in adding to this Cover-Up. This letter is just one of many different letters that were addressed to
the listed politicians and New Jersey State Goverment officers. These questions were never addressed in verbal
or written form by these parties.
Although this letter and a great deal of other evidence have been sent by certified mail to
New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine and His appointed NJ Attorney General, both these government offices refuse to reply
or respond to my phone calls.
Being the local Vice-Chairman
of New Jersey's Supreme Court's Office of Attorney Ethics, Robert D. Correale, Esq. was able to do what he and his Law
Firm of Maynard & Truland wanted. With all their friends and influence around the State of New Jersey, they
were clearly above the law. At least, they were for the last 5 to 6 years.
