Karina Von Watteville,

I would like to advise you that I do not want to be criminally harassed and slandered over your attempts to defraud Paulette Brandt of the rent monies you owe her.  I have addressed the fact that you phoned Robert Kory (Leonard Cohen's lawyer) after Paulette Brandt presented you with a demand letter for the 14 months rental arrears you owe her.  You were screaming in court (on two occasions) about contacting Robert Kory and Leonard Cohen.  I do not know you and find that situation beyond sinister.  My cease and desist letters to you have nothing to do with Cohen's theft from me (in the millions), criminal tax fraud, or anything else.  

I personally believe Phil Spector's legal team should investigate why you are working with Stephen Gianelli who is now evidently assisting you in defrauding Paulette Brandt.  

However, I will advise you again that I am not a party to the Small Claims matter Paulette Brandt filed against you and do not want to be harassed over this situation.  It is my personal opinion that Gianelli has threatened Paulette Brandt over this matter.  He criminally threatens, stalks, harasses, and attempts to intimidate witnesses.  As a green card holder, you should understand that this is criminal conduct.  

I am advising you that I am NOT a party to the Small Claims action and want this harassment to cease and desist.

Kelley Lynch

Ms. Brandt,

One  downside (of several)  to you signing on to Kelley Lynch’s vicious and malicious slander campaign against me (and many others) is that any non-lawyers who you and/or Ms. Lynch and/or Linda Carol are harassing or slandering and find yourselves opposing in litigation of any kind will have technical litigation support from a top Californian trial lawyer of 35 years’ experience who retired at the top of his game in 2013 – for free.

(I billed my time out to paying clients when I was in practice at $600/hour – although I have a lifetime of approximately 10,000 pro bono hours.)

Perhaps the three of you can match my encyclopedic knowledge of civil procedure and ability to think and plan strategically. Many fine, experienced Californian litigators could not. (See, e.g., the last case I tried before retirement or my last appeal before retirement  or this pro bono appeal, that made new law in California and has since been cited by other courts of appeal over 100 times and is cited in every family law treatise in California . Or, Talk to Sandi Schafer, a schoolteacher who entrusted he life savings to an unscrupulous contractor referred by his friend (Sandi’s mortgage broker) who took her money and walked off the job before construction of her dream home was finished – then LIENED the unfinished house for $60K, then sued her. I represented Sandi for free. Won the case – the lien was expunged, contractor paid her $40,000 in damages. Licensing board REVOKED contractor’s license. The Department of Real Estate REVOKED the mortgage broker’s license (who went from a million dollar annual income to zero).)

I have tried over 200 jury trials to verdict, conducted 400+ bench trials, scores of preliminary hearings, conducted over a thousand depositions, and have made and opposed several thousand motions in civil and criminal courts all over California.  

I am obsessive about finding out the correct, definitive procedural answer and communicating that to the court as succinctly and clearly as possible – no matter how many hours that takes, and whether I am being paid or not.

In any legal matter you and/or Ms. Lynch and/or Linda Carol may initiate or find yourselves otherwise involved in, you will find me supporting the other side at no charge.

No need to thank me. It’s the least I can do after the kindness you have showed me.

Very truly yours,

Stephen R. Gianelli
