Anna von Reitz Answer to Hiring Attorneys
Never hire a Bar Attorney. Ever. He is an Officer of the Court and his first duty and loyalty is to profit the Court — and how is that going to happen except by— in one way or another— dis-serving and defrauding you? This is a big part of the reason that these “Courts” enjoy a 97% conviction rate. People hire attorneys thinking that these men are going to work for them and for their good, but in fact, they are financing their own destruction. If any Court addresses you, you need to present a certified copy of your recorded Mandatory FSIA Notice and ask them pointedly —who gave you permission to address me? If they attempt to enter a plea for you, you must remind the judge that he or she is precluded from practicing law while on the bench. And you do not consent to his or her action. If they attempt to assign a Public Defender, require him or her to accept complete commercial liability for any harm done to your “vessel and cargo”—- they will slink away. So, how can you hope to defend yourself against these pirates in robes and fend off their odious presumptions? Start by looking for and hiring a competent “Counselor-at-Law”. A Counselor doesn’t work for the court — he or she is actually likely to work for you and for your benefit against the court. A good Counselor-at-Law has studied both law and procedure, but is not necessarily someone who went to Law School. In fact, the product of our American Law Schools is more likely to have problems functioning as a Counselor-at-Law because he or she has learned very little about actual law or justice and a great deal about procedure and little “tricks” to pull, catch phrases to use, and things of that nature—- which don’t apply to the functions of a Counselor-at-Law. Increasingly we are seeing former judges and former Bar Attorneys entering the fray as Counselors-at-Law. They have torn up their Salvage Tickets (Bar Cards) and are now doing what they can to salvage their profession and make correction. That’s good on them, and I encourage their defection, but they often face a year or two of reorientation and intense learning, during which time they may not be as effective as a Counselor-at-Law as someone who never went to a Law School. We are looking forward to establishing a Mentor’s Program for Counselors-at-Law to help transition former Bar Members. We are also seeing self-styled free-lance Private Attorney Generals (PAG’s) who basically perform the functions of a Counselor-at-Law for US Citizens. By all means, if you are not able to quit your federal government job, are an African American, or otherwise obligated to remain in the federal jurisdiction and subject to their courts for the time being— look for a Private Attorney General. Rod Class has trained up quite a few Private Attorney Generals and more are in training. These men and women, like Rod, take on the Beast from a different jurisdiction, but like Counselors-at-Law, PAG’s work for you— not the court.
