This is regarding SJC Case 12025, In Re Valeriano Diviacchi, in which the undersigned attorney Valeriano Diviacchi had the courage to speak honestly and truthfully to the best of his knowledge and ability; who was the only attorney willing to handle a complex, difficult case on an honest and reasonable fee basis; who was willing to do so despite being out-of-state attending his daughter’s college graduation at most material times (something no judge or BBO member could be bothered to consider); who represented his dishonest client in such a competent and diligent manner that his dishonest client avoided default, foreclosure, and true bankruptcy that would have been the undisputed result without his representation; and who committed no act of perjury nor intentional misrepresentation as falsely claimed in this case unlike the other attorneys involved who used his honest work and the dishonest nature of his client to collect their dishonest fees and to falsely disparage his work and experience.
Private citizen Valeriano Diviacchi pursuant to the First Amendment states to the following specific individuals and generally to the American system of Injustice:
To the Injustices of the Supreme Judicial Court who have become so accustomed to stating fact and “law” as necessary to enforce their own personal ruling class ideology that they have become incapable of differentiating fact from fiction and whose fear of losing their power prevents them from dealing honestly with the miserable lives who have the misfortune of appearing before them;
To the glorified bookkeepers that call themselves Bar Counsel and Board of Bar “Overseers” consistent with their plantation heritage and mentality whose only knowledge of ethics is how to spell it and including but limited to the hypocritical, delusional, sycophant, bigots who were involved in the above case who were and are willing to have their personal emotional dislike of an individual serve as a basis for financial, personal, and familial punishment of that individual;
To the fine, upstanding members of the Bar everywhere whose ignorance of history added to their ability to contort delusional self-interest into a recognizable and enforceable ethical standard makes them willing to destroy lives both physically and spiritually;
And last by not least
To my former client Camilla Warrender:
I did nothing morally wrong and made no mistake in this case other than to naively expect honesty and forthrightness from my client, the Bar, and the justice system. A mistake no honest trial attorney should make or they will wind up as I have in this case in which the published facts have little if any relation to what actually happened.
