Editors Note: 9/29/2017 – It’s unfortunate for asbestos victims that two lawyers are ‘stealing’ money from the Manville Trust who are supposed to be Fiduciaries — Jason Rubinstein and Jared Garelick. Having accepted a ‘tacit bribe’ to commit fraud, Rubinstein and Garelick have done just that years — conspiracy and bad faith. Add Sham lawsuits. Sham audits. Tyranny. Fraud. Misconduct. Perjury….all to protect the fraud of others (Al Brayton and Steve Kazan) and pad their own pockets with Asbestos victims money.
Bernie Madoff/Steven Kazan — Steven Kazan/Bernie Madoff.
The comparisons are undeniable. Both misappropriated billions of dollars. Both enriched friends/family at the expense of victims. Both held themselves out “pioneers” while committing vast fraud. Both will leave a legacy of fraud and bad faith impacting tens of thousands of victims solely to enrich themselves. Unfortunately, only one of them is in jail. Madoff. The other (Kazan) continues to misappropriate funds from asbestos claimant. The difference? In every Asbestos Trust Kazan inserts a “License to Commit Fraud” thus allowing him to continue his wrath of dishonesty (i.e. …“No Asbestos Claimants’ Representative are to have or incur any liability to any Entity for any act or omissions arising out of the Chapter 11 cases or during the entirety of the Chapter 11 cases). 2 Criminals (although only one has been convicted – Madoff) – 2 “Losers” – 2 of the biggest fund frauds in history – 2 very bad individuals.
THE PIONEERS OF ASBESTOS TRUST FRAUD AND MISAPPROPRIATION
For decades, lawyers Steven Kazan, Alan Brayton, and David McClain have held themselves as “Pioneers” of Asbestos Litigation. The reality is – They are the “Pioneers of Asbestos Trust Fraud”. Billions (yes, billions) of dollars set aside for victims of asbestos have been misappropriated by these 3.

The Asbestos Trust Mafia: Corrupt Lawyers Harming Present and Future Asbestos Victims
Note: This is a ‘story’ that has to be written. Billions and Billions of Dollars have been stolen by the individuals below. Billions. Each of the individuals below is tied to each other as an “Asbestos Trust Fiduciary”. Each is dishonest. Each commits fraud solely designed to misappropriate money from asbestos victims. Each is solely engaging in fraud to “line their own pockets”. Quite possibly “THE” most corrupt lawyers in the Country. The Asbestos Trust Mafia.

Opinion (Michael J. Mandelbrot, 25 years Asbestos Plaintiff Attorney)
It’s Official – A Mafia exists in the world of Asbestos Litigation. I know because I worked at a “Mafia” member’s Firm, saw the activities first hand, and have now dealt with these corrupt Fiduciaries (the “Asbestos Trust Mafia”) for over 20 years. Nothing below would be printed were it not true and supported by factual and/or documentary evidence. For 30 years these dishonest lawyers have ‘raped’ Companies, Trusts, and Asbestos Victims to the tune of billions….
