A client refused to pay an open bill from an attorney, because the attorney, Robert Correale
and his law firm, Maynard & Truland had overcharged per hour, falsely billed, came to court unprepared, had been grossly
negligent, had extremely poor communications, etc.
The law firm brought the open bill to Superior
Court. After seeing the evidence of the law firm‘s own contract, their invoices, court-filed documents and court-filed
letters, the judge threw out the law firm’s open bill case. The judge then ruled that their client was allowed to sue
for damages in a higher level of Superior Civil Court.
When the client asked for a copy of the
Superior Court transcript, he was informed by the court clerk that the actual judge’s ruling was missing from the court
audio and could not be typed.
The client soon learned that his former attorney, Robert Correale
was not only a general practice attorney for his law firm, Maynard & Truland, but Correale was also actively serving as
an assistant district attorney in the State of New Jersey and was also serving as a member of New Jersey's Supreme Court
Office of Attorney Ethics.
With Robert Correale and Maynard & Truland saved in Superior Court by a missing
court transcript audio, the former client still wanted to bring them to justice. He filed a complaint in the New Jersey's
Office of Attorney Ethics. This New Jersey Supreme Court department insisted that Robert Correale’s own Attorney Ethics
committee do the investigation of him and his law firm. Eventually, Correale and Maynard & Truland were cleared of all
charges. However, Correale resigned from his Supreme Court position two weeks after his former client accused him of lying
in his sworn Certification to the Supreme Court. After a few years, he returned to this position.
over 10 years, the client is still trying to bring them to justice.
The State of New Jersey claims
nothing can be done for the missing court transcript. (Superior Court transcripts go missing sometimes…) The State
of New Jersey claims also that the Statute of Limitations is now in play and nothing could be done with these charges any
The federal Department of Justice (DoJ) claims this matter is a state issue and
must be handled by the State of New Jersey. Governor Chris Christie continues to look the other way…
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.
Please call (And
have your family and friends call) Governor Chris Christie's office at 609-292-6000 and say, "Jack Cunningham deserves
his investigation request against Robert Correale and his former law firm, Maynard & Truland."
Please sign the petition to Governor Chris Christie to get him to investigate the evidence to this government
