Steven Kazan and the rest of the Asbestos Trust Mafia Scramble to Conceal Fraud Amidst Department of Justice Investigations – Judge Sanctions Plaintiff Lawyers…
Asbestos Plaintiff Lawyers have to be scrambling. Every one of them. They have concealed fraudulent Asbestos Trust Claims, Excessive Payments, and outright “lies” to thousands of Asbestos Defendants….and the former, now Bankrupt Asbestos Defendants know it!! And now the Bestwall has access to that Plaintiff lawyer fraud….this will get interesting….
They have acted as “Slum Lords” over Asbestos Trusts for Decades and have “stolen” well over $5 Billion Dollars...and now the Plaintiff Asbestos Lawyers want to “Conceal” their fraud despite Judges Orders….
So who is responsible from the Asbestos Plaintiff side? Corrupt Plaintiff Lawyers, “fake” Asbestos Fiduciaries, and current and former Judges….see below!
Here is a collection of those responsible for the theft of over $5 Billion in Victim Trust Funds…
Let’s introduce to you to the “Dirty 30” – 30 Corrupt Asbestos Trust Lawyers (and one Judge and one former Judge!)
- Alan Brayton (firstname.lastname@example.org; @braytonlaw; Brayton Purcell – Novato, California- California Lawyer – The undisputed “King of Asbestos Trust Corruption” and Double Dipping. A “sick” man. The most corrupt asbestos trust lawyer in the Country – here’s a few documents (as a note – I have them for each on this list). Has stolen hundreds of millions from the Western Asbestos Settlement Trust in Reno, Nevada. Brayton, Kazan, McClain and Snyder Stealing 47 Million from Victims – Articles – Brayton Fraudulent Bankruptcy Claims
- Steven Kazan (@kazanlaw) Oakland, California. www.kazanlaw.com – The “Bernie Madoff” of Asbestos Litigation – California Lawyer – Brayton’s ‘sidekick’. Akin to Bernie Madoff. Backroom fraud artist. Oversees nearly 25 Trusts through fraud – hires “interested parties” to mismanage and misappropriate Trust funds. Will leave a legacy of Asbestos Trust Fraud which put millions of hard working individuals out of work and misappropriated the millions for victims of asbestos disease. Uses his tyrannical power to suppress others claimants/victims.
- Mary Ellen Nickel-Delaware Lawyer – Delaware Claims Processing Facility, Wilmington, DE – Oversees at least 10 Trusts in Delaware through fraud/mismanagement. A Liar to her core. Has Misappropriated hundreds of millions to Kazan – Insider dealer
- Judge Sheri Bluebond – Most Corrupt Judge in California – California Lawyer/Judge. Disgraceful person. Knowingly ‘turns the other way’ at fraud/misappropriation of funds and mismanagement to divert funds to her friends, Brayton and others. Used sexual harassment (she was receptive!)to get Appointed (Judge Kozinski). Later muted Sexual Harassment Complaints as Kozinski was reviewing a Complaint for Judicial Misconduct. Exhibit 2 – Misconduct, Insider Dealing Presiding Judge Sheri BluebondShe had to ‘stand out’ in some way. Insider Dealer/Fraud/Bribery. Rumor is that she used asbestos trust funds to ‘buy’ her kids (infertility treatments) – did she name her kids “Thorpe” and “J.T. Thorpe”?
- Former Alameda Judge Ken Kawaichi – Steven Kazan’s former local Judge and hand picked fraudster. Kawaichi was clearly bribed by Kazan while on the Bench – “Rule for Kazan in Trials and I will get you multiple Asbestos Trust “Fiduciary” positions where you will earn 3x more than on the Bench for little or no work…”…Kawaichi is now a “Fiduciary ” on at least 3 Asbestos Trusts and gets paid over $500,000.00 per year (while committing mass Trust fraud to favor Kazan’s claims…)…
- Gary Fergus – California Lawyer. See above. A walking ‘buffoon’. Should be in jail for monies stolen from Western/Thorpe Trusts. Elder abuser. A former asbestos ‘soldier’ who billed his clients into bankruptcy before seeking a “golden parachute” from the Trusts. A dishonest and terrible attorney who has engaged in racketeering and fraud with regards to Asbestos Trust. Recently FIRED from all Trusts.
- Sara Beth Brown – Nevada Lawyer – Oversees 4 trusts in Reno, Nevada with one goal – Divert as much Trust monies to herself and Alan Brayton Dumb. Literally. Hired solely to assist in misappropriating funds to Brayton/Kazan from Western/Plant/Thorpe Trusts. Works maybe 2 days a month overseeing billions of dollars in Trust fund claims – She is the definition Reno “Trailer Trash” (next to her sidekick Laura Paul, of course)- Brayton’s hand picked choice to commit fraud. Discovered Brayton Fraud in Trust claims (yet Brown conceals it). An accomplice to Brayton fraud! Kananian fraud and malpractice. Why didn’t the Trust do anything? They would have found hundreds of additional fraudulent claims!! Billions stolen. Concealed by Brown. See these links: Attempt to “Cover Up” Manville Kananian Fraud; Fraudulent Kananian Western Default. The definition of Reno Trailer Trash.

- Laura Paul (not a Lawyer) -300 East Second Street, Suite 1205

(775) 324-5511 – It would be a compliment to call her “Reno Trailer Trash” – The Country’s most disgraceful Trust employee. Western/Thorpe Trust ‘pigeon’ – liar who has spent a decade assisting Brayton/Snyder/Kazan is misappropriation. Incredibly unqualified to work at Trusts (maybe McDonalds) yet was hired solely to aid in fraud. Dumb as a box of rocks. Probably dumber. Trust thief. Not surprising why Paul had 4 kids w/4 different dads by the age of 35. Reno, Nevada’s ‘poster child’ of Asbestos Trust fraud. Not even a college graduate yet oversees billions?…Where did Brayton, David McClain and Gary Fergus find her? The Mustang Ranch?

So there they are…”The Dirty 30+”. To act with such unabashed fraud – there is seriously something wrong with these individuals. Really wrong. Greed? Partly. Bad Lawyers who see a Chance to Steal Millions? Partly. Corrupt? Collectively!
What each of these lawyers has done is stolen (literally) from the Trust Beneficiaries they are paid millions to ‘represent’.
