Win Your Case

When a country boy from Wyoming walks into a big city courtroom all eyes are on him, especially if he is wearing a buckskin fringe jacket which is as rare as the man wearing it.

Gerry Spence has been practicing law for nearly three-quarters of a century, longer than most people have lived. And he has been a consistent winner in the courtroom. In his entire career he only lost but one case, and as far as I know he later won that one on appeal. Regardless, his astonishing track record as the most successful trial lawyer in American history is something one would want to read about and learn how he does it.

The key was a jury trial. And then once he had the jury captive in his country-gentleman charisma, his storytelling, which he used in nearly every case, was his secret weapon to winnable jury verdicts. Everyone that he ever tried.

I have read just about all of Gerry Spence’s remarkable books. This one I purchased as a Kindle eBook edition, but I will someday add the hardcover to my Gerry Spence home library.

Gerry Spence is first a storyteller and then a trial lawyer. His storytelling and trusting country gentleman manner are the keys that won him and his clients large jury awards. His ability to master the human behavior of the jury is what made him what he is, the Master of Law and Justice.

Gerry Spence is a man of many talents. The one talent that is greater than his ability to win trials is his ability to teach others how he does it and how they can do it, too. That begins with this book, his law college, and his method teachings.

A mountain of knowledge can be tapped online in a wealth of sources from YouTube video interviews and speeches to his online blogs and educational centers and his many books available in eBook, print paperback or hardcover or audio. Go get your own, and win!

It’s not all about legal stuff and law. Gerry Spence is a man of many great talents. His philosophy is contagious. He teaches us how establish self-respect and condition ourselves for public drama. He teaches us how to get into the trenches of legal war yet maintain our composure while telling a compelling story from start to finish. He teaches us how to paint the picture of the victim while winning the hearts of the jury who will win your case and award you damages for your loss, pain and suffering and more.

Gerry Spence wins, and he wins big. This book, Win Your Case, explains how he does it.

Win Your Case is required reading for anyone engaged in litigation. This book is the beginning of the education any litigator needs to study. ~ Cliff Harrison


Fighting for the People: The Legacy of Gerry Spence, America’s Most Successful Trial Lawyer

Some of the best education in the discussion and philosophy on law and justice can be gathered by studying the most powerful and victorious trial lawyer in American history, Gerry Spence, my mentor.

Gerry Spence has released multiple books, websites and blogs and videos, or have been the subject of interviews thereof that tells compelling stories of injustice and of justice.

Insider Exclusive is just one such public showcase that has repeatedly featured Gerry Spence and his stories of law and justice.

I have spent more than four decades listening to or reading and studying and sometimes communicating with Gerry Spence. It has always been a rewarding experience and an educational one, too.

I do not have a very good opinion of most lawyers. As a group I think that most of them are the epitome of the abyss and of immoral misconduct, the parasites of life. They are demonic and evil.

Jesus Christ didn’t think too much of lawyers either, so my thoughts cannot be too distance from the thoughts of the most powerful force in the universe.

Gerry Spence is clearly a different species. He is a rare genius in a crowded profession of losers and imbeciles.

He is a fierce warrior and a freedom fighter, yet such a gentle poet and a painter and photographer. These talents symbolize his heart and soul. Who could compare with such a man of remarkable valor and talent, yet so uncomplicated that he can communicate so the common people fully understand him—and his convictions?

He is a teacher, a philosopher, rancher, and a storyteller. And he is a man of many more things, all wholesome and good, all moral and upstanding. I believe more than anything else, he is a leader for freedom, law, justice and leadership. He wants you to be you, not a carbon copy or a clone of him, Gerry Spence.

The Gerry Spence Method

The Gerry Spence Method Blog

He is an inspiration to any who has lost hope. In one of his books about slavery and freedom, and being in prison he explains you are free if you allow your mind to think you are free.

In another, in an example about the horrors of medical malpractice and the predator examples of negligence doctors and those in the medical fields he talks about the number of daily medical deaths due to negligent doctors amounts to the equivalence of several fully loaded passenger jets crashing and the passengers perishing. He says if We the People had that many planes crashing and the passengers perishing, we’d rise up and demand change. Yet, he testifies, that many people die each and every day due to careless, doctors and medical professionals who are negligent and wrongful in the deaths or serious injuries of their patients. Vulnerable patients.  

Gerry Spence is the diamond that comes from the harvest of coal.   

For many years when he was more active in one of his blogs I communicated regularly with him, as did many people, including several lawyers, students, and nonstudents of his. The discussions of law and justice were always interesting and compelling.

Gerry Spence is the Grand Master of Law and Justice, second to none.

He is a master at explaining law, debating, and arguing it in simple terms most people can grasps.

Gerry Spence is 93 years old. He has practiced law for some 70 years, longer than before most people reading this material were ever born.

In my opinion he is the greatest trial lawyer in history. He went decades undefeated in criminal and civil cases of every magnitude. He defeated many governments, including the United States Federal Government and the FBI.

The Randy Weaver’s, Ruby Ridge case, was just one such case that elevated Gerry Spence into the national limelight as a super lawyer.

The Karen Silkwood case was the premier case that demonstrated Gerry Spence’s profound mastery of law.

The man named Spence could walk into a courtroom, the coldest of the coldest, in his heart-warming western attire, fringed buckskin jacket and all, and tame the wild minds of the most hostile adversary and melt the hearts of the jury like an inferno on top of an iceberg.

He could look the jurors in the eyes and plead with them during the closing arguments, ask them to help him, help him understand his case. He would tell a story almost every time in those closing arguments. He made friends of strangers and adversaries. Who could dislike Gerry Spence, the grand storyteller and Master of Law and Justice?

And so, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, the case of little Polly is in yours.”

Perhaps Gerry Spence’s most admirable characteristic is that he is trusting. We the People look at him and find him trusting. Something we seldom do with those other ones who tell us they are lawyers or attorneys.

Snakes crawl from the grass many if not most lawyers walk upon, but not from the footsteps of Gerry Spence. White doves fly from his shoulders and the American bald eagle flies high and soars in the skies above him.

I have read nearly every book Gerry Spence has ever written and they remain in my library among the most prized and admired authors in my collection. Authors of liberty and independence. Law and justice. War and peace. The minds, heart, and souls of life. The mentors of justice. The freedom fighters and the liberators of the oppressed. The educators of self-education and inspirations.

POLICE STATE

I have viewed every video he was every interviewed in or was a principle in its production.

Spence is a multitalented professional. Not only has he practiced law for well over a half-century, nearly three-quarters of a century, in fact, and with astonishing success, he is a freedom fighter for the rights of the common people. He is the founder of the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College, to train trial lawyers for the fight of the people. The college is held on the 35,000 acre Thunderhead Ranch in the Dubois, Wyoming area.

Inductee of the Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame

Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame Video Commentary

Local Las Vegas lawyers who have attended and graduated from the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College have secured record jury trial awards here locally. One such multimillion dollar verdict against a negligent Las Vegas landlord to provide adequate security sets a precedence that law and justice shall be served to the victims of the wrongdoers.

Three words and phrases in the language of law that are powerful inflictions upon the defendant(s) to assure their defeat when the victorious legal maneuvers are engaged with their empowerment by the plaintiff are negligence, gross negligence and willful and malicious misconduct. They are not the only legal terms that can bring a malicious defendant to their knees and punish them with no mercy, but they are perhaps the most effective, most enduring and the costliest to the defendant’s legal war chest.

The Litigator who holds these trump cards in his war strategies and can prove the existence of negligence, gross negligence and willful and malicious misconduct by the defendant(s) should victor over his wrongdoers in the eyes of the trial jury that should escalate the size of awards for the damages caused to the plaintiff. The liability against the defendant is magnificent. That is where justice meets law and law guarantees justice. It is at the very foundation and framework of a free nation called the United States of America.

“Law without justice is like a body without a soul.” –Forshey Law

More Taxpayers’ Money Funneling Addicts?

Nevada’s Clark County often teams with nonprofits to funnel money to the homeless.

Help Hope Home on Facebook (Clark County)

Help Hope Home Website

The comment I left on Facebook for this announcement:

“So, is the City of Las Vegas, Clark County and this “nonprofit” going to stop people from being evicted so landlords can make a money grab? Are these “homeless rescue” programs going to follow the criminal HELP of Southern Nevada protocol that crowds violent freeloaders with drug and alcohol addiction in with vulnerable elderly so they can abuse them? If so I smell litigation to put an end to this waste of taxpayer money. There are more jobs available now with higher pay than any time in history. Detox these homeless, put them to work and STOP abusing the taxpayers’ money on violent criminals with treatable addictions. House them in your own neighborhoods or tents until they are willing to shift from freeloading and partying to a self-responsible productive lifestyle.”

Note:

I searched high and low for IRS nonprofit information for a 501(c)(3) by the name Help Hope Home and came up negative. It is too early to conclude and I need more time to research. I have a feeling this outfit is tied to HELP of Southern Nevada which is a local nonprofit worshipped by the City of Las Vegas and the County of Clark and even had their roots to these government agencies. HELP of Southern Nevada has been in the homeless racket for 52 years. They all claim to be “ending homelessness” but the taxpayers money funneled to this worthless cause is endless. Never will they “end” homelessness the way they operate. And they know it. There is huge liability when government agencies and nonprofits marry. We’ll be discussing such issues in future posts.

A comment posted by a Facebook user named, Bruce Henry said, “No such thing as Federal Funds it is all Taxpayers Funds period. Stop this disinformation please.” I agree with that statement 100%.

One of the primary reasons I am opposed to any government agency using taxpayer funds to support nonprofits is they do NOT supervise or investigate what they fund. They just hand our money over and that is the end of it. Aside of being a victimized vulnerable elderly by city, county and nonprofit clients and being in an apartment complex where they turn these freeloading addicts and drug dealers loose without any security or supervision, I can testify there is NO detox. NO work program. NO guidance to a better life with productive results. NO successful conclusion to dependence while establishing an independent and productive life for these clients. There is just 24/7 partying and vice–with ZERO SECURITY, an unlawful condition.

There is widespread corruption pointing directly to these nonprofits and the government agencies and public officials which subvert American taxpayers’ money to violent criminals with no oversight. They do this by setting up these homeless funneling operations with landlords/slumlords who violate just about every law on the books and they engage in conspiracy and racketeering with these entities. I am not saying that this organization is doing that, there is still too much information that needs to be collected, but as for the city, county and other nonprofits, there is a long line of evidence I will be presenting that will either shut these operations down or upset the taxpayers whose funds are being channeled to unlawful sources that are against the public’s trust. One rule the IRS has about nonprofits is that they MUST work within the realms of the public trust.

Much more will be coming. Stay tuned. Scroll down and read the post below where I call for Clark County Nevada’s Sheriff Joseph Lombardo to resign and withdraw his run for Nevada’s governor office. That post is loaded with names and events that have occurred where I reside and has not gotten better, but much worst. I posted that article almost a year ago. I was violently attacked shortly thereafter and I have been attacked repeatedly since.

Most people would agree that if someone is homeless we support giving them a helping hand and a support group to help them get on their feet to a productive life. That is NOT what is happening here. Full dependence and full abuse of the taxpayers and donors money is being committed.

Some people may not like what I post. That is okay, they can change the channel anytime they wish. I post more for a public record and an accounting of the conditions and of the corruption and crimes that public officials, their agencies, nonprofits and other entities commit more than anything else.


24 April 2022 Reopening of Vegas Valley

After newly a year of closure because of litigation I decided to reopen the blog since freedom of speech has no tolerance for censorship.

There is never a shortage anywhere of lawyers eager to attack the First Amendment, as though it were nothing more than a clause in a lease from a crooked slumlord.” ~Kurt Vonnegut

I closed the blog due to ongoing litigation. I have more active litigation now, than I did then. Most trial lawyers recommend a run silent, run deep social media mode once litigation is started. The reason is your opponent’s lawyers and insurance people will scrutinize your social media accounts so that they can find anything that you say and use it against you. Let them. I stand my ground. I was born with inalienable rights that no power can take away.

I wanted peace. I offered peace from the beginning. I gave them many chances for peace. They wanted war. Then so be it. It is war they shall have. I will give them a war they cannot win.

I was born under God, in a free nation that is symbolic for its unalienable rights carved into its constitution and documents of creed that provide the framework for the basic laws that govern all its citizens and the people of the world.

I was not born under the red flag with the yellow hammer and sickle that announces Communist-Marxism, nor will I bow down to it. Or, any other symbol of tyranny and oppression.

“…Man did not enter into society to become worst than he was before, nor to have fewer rights than he had before, but to have those rights better secured. His natural rights are the foundation of all his civil rights.” –Thomas Paine, The Rights of Man

Cliff Harrison Calls for Sheriff Joe Lombardo to Resign and to Withdraw from the Nevada Governor Race

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo, head of the Clark County law enforcement team known as the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, (LVMPD) or simply METRO, must resign from office for his blatant disregard for public safety, security, and welfare.

Lombardo should withdraw from the 2022 Nevada Governor race as well.

Joseph Lombardo has demonstrated time and time again he is unfit to hold public office of any nature, much less the top command of a police department or the helm of a state government.

Lombardo ought to do the right thing: immediately resign as sheriff, withdraw his political ambition for governor of Nevada and surrender his retirement benefit package and pension back to the people of Clark County, the City of Las Vegas, and the State of Nevada.

We will also call upon several other Vegas Valley public officials to resign under comparable conditions and for like reasons. Those include, but not exclude, Clark County District Attorney, Steve Wolfson, Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman, Congresswoman Dina Titus, and others.

It appears Captain Patricia Spencer of the Downtown Area Command has already retired. Maybe not? Are there two Captain Patricia Spencer at LVMPD? Did she retire? If not, she too should resign and forfeit her retirement. It is undetermined rather she did retire or continues to suck tax dollars into her assets accumulation. There are reports that a Captain Patricia Spencer retired, but there are also recent news reports and social media posts showing her still on the job. If Joe Lombardo’s team knows how to do one thing and do it well it is to distort reality.

METRO is famous for false reporting, deliberate confusion, misleading reports and coverups. Joe Lombardo allows this kind of misleading data out of Metro. It is one of the most nontransparent law enforcement agencies in the universe. METRO continues its false public presence. Under Captain Spencer’s command 89101 and neighboring sectors eroded to a criminal utopia.

In 2010 the FBI reported three Las Vegas neighborhoods among the top 25 most dangerous in the country. Those three were in our neighborhood zip codes of 89101 and adjacent 89106 which took 3rd, 4th and 8th place as the most dangerous in the USA. Since then, officers have fabricated police reports and journalists have regarded the downtown command as a sort of no-go zone and there is zero reporting of some of the most violent crime here. Attempts on my life and home invasions attempts by violent felons and drug gangs were marked as simple vandalism by incompetent commanders and METRO police officers. Raw video will show that incompetence and deliberate coverups that is widespread throughout Lombardo’s legacy and was of Gillespie’s and Young’s, too, Lombardo’s Messiah and predecessors.  

LVMPD needs to remove “To Protect and Serve” from their language and “Partners with the Community” from the fenders of their patrol vehicles. They do not protect and serve nor do they partner with the community, unless of course they mean the drug trade community, the slumlord community, and the criminal community. Those and their kinds are the communities that prosper with Joe Lombardo pretending to be a law enforcement leader.

Lombardo is the worst law enforcement leader in the universe. Over the next few weeks, months and even years, running up to and after the 2022 Nevada Governor election we will be posting much evidence throughout our Network Media of why Lombardo is an inept, unqualified, unfit, and sorry example of a leader of any sort.

Lombardo’s command and his presences encourages criminals and their crimes. It aids and abets slumlords and their unlawful immigrant property managers who are not property managers by bean counters. We will prove without a shadow of doubt that Lombardo embraces crime by subpoenaing the first responder logs for 89101. First, we will demand he release them. Then we will follow up if he fails too. Why has not the media already done this? There is your evidence. Get it! Use it!

DIY Search of Ty-De Development, Inc. Follow the Trail and See Where It Takes You…

Millionaire Philanthropist in Beverly Hills and Burbank, Slumlord in Las Vegas

Living the Life of Riley in a Multi-Million-Dollar Mansion Beverly Hills multimillionaire Runs a Slumlord Properties Filled with Hardcore Criminal Felon, Drug Deals, Drug Users, Human Trafficking!

Why does Lombardo or Captain Patricia Spencer refuse to take the Beverly Hills slumlord immigrant from Taiwan and his Burbank business partner in Ty-De Developments Inc, owners of Downtown Las Vegas most dangerous properties, Maverick and Hidden Village, into custody, prosecute them for their crimes and then deport them after completing sentences? Are they being paid off with Chinese-Taiwan Triad drug money? The multimillionaire is a UCLA award winning chemist and channels millions of dollars to charity while owning and profiting from the largest taxpayer-costing property of Las Vegas first responders manpower and equipment. I demand Lombardo release those first responder costs for services to the Ty-De Development properties and now!

Why does Lombardo or Captain Patricia Spencer refuse to take the immigrant “property managers” into custody and arrest them, prosecute them, and then deport them? These so-called property managers are not property managers and never walk the property to see what is going on or having a care to. They continue in refusing to provide safe, secure living for the tenants, or to remove squatters, drug dealers and drug users and human traffickers. They are bean counters, the money counters for the Ty-De Development Inc businesses. They are in gross negligence and criminal negligence, but Lombardo, Spencer, Wolfson, Goodman, Titus is negligent, too because they have been aware of the crimes for years at these properties and fail to do anything about them. Why? Are they paid off with Mexican Cartel drug money? Those first responder logs will rest my case, all mentioned are GUILTY!

Why does not the Las Vegas Review Journal, The Las Vegas Sun, and number of TV news channels or local online news report of the crimes and slumlord conditions in Downtown Las Vegas? Is there no interest in violent felons squatting, undetected and under radar on taxpayer dollars, openly and defiantly? Is there no integrity in news journalism? Where have the honest news reporters gone? Is 89101 a NO-GO ZONE? Are they afraid to come where people live and die, with violence surrounding them?

Why has not the HELP of Southern Nevada social workers and management team been arrested, prosecuted, and sentenced serious felonies like for Racketeering and RICO Act violations, drug crimes and human trafficking with taxpayers money? They are in a racket with Ty-De Development and their management team, the papers prove it, quick and easily.

Lombardo and the public officials listed, and their comrades, sanctuary and criminal make the Vegas Valley, especially 89101 and the Ty-De Development Inc holdings a slumlord’s utopia, criminal immigrants sanctuary, organized gang empire, a drug trafficking paradise, a human trafficking wonderland, a vice-crime kingdom and freeloading, a love nest and drug house for defrauding squatters and public assistant abusing heaven for unregistered, undocumented, unvetted felons, including sex abusers, and child abuse predators.

Where is Clark County Social Services investigators checking on their clients defrauding the taxpayers of their money?

Lombardo and Captain Patricia Spencer will retire (It appears Captain Spencer may have already retired while METRO continues to publish false reports to the public) in comfort making more than three times the average American citizen while mothers spend a lifetime weeping and living the nightmares because Lombardo and Spencer and other commanders sent their children home in body bags. (I have raw footage to support that statement.) Lombardo and Spencer and their kind created a dangerous crime zone in the Vegas Valley by their gross negligence and willful misconduct.

A review of the Clark County Morgue records will support my statements. Are there no investigative reporters worth their salt to demand the production of records of evidence? Or is dirty dining our only concern?

Where are the New York Times reporters, The LA times journalist and the UCLA integrity investigation teams? Are they bought off? Drug money has a huge influence. Just ask Joe Lombardo to show the arrests of his deputies under his watch.

Inept Sheriff Lombardo Wannabe the Governor. No! No! No! Absolutely NOT!

The 2022 Nevada gubernatorial election will take place on 8 November 2022. We need to prevent Joe Lombardo from becoming governor or any other kind of politician. And we need to stop the Bill Young dynasty of trinkle-down disciples controlling LVMPD and now. Our lives, safety, well-being and security depend upon our victory. The complete removal of corrupt, criminal, dangerous and useless politicians and public officials who endanger our lives and place us at constant risk, is an essential requirement for our Vegas Valley citizens. The current positions are filled with characters who fail in their responsibilities and are in direct dereliction of duty. We must succeed in removing these negligent public officials. And we will.

Lombardo needs to get out politics and out of “public service.” He endangers the lives of vulnerable and innocent citizens of this Las Vegas community and those tourists or visitors who come here.

No, Joe Lombardo cannot be governor of the State of Nevada. He should not even be sheriff of Clark County. He should be gone. Period!

It is my turn. It is my story… and I am going to tell it, fully. Lombardo and his disciples are exposed.
