The covering up of criminality within the legal profession by the Law Society of NSW

On 27 November 2009, Terence Goldberg of Turner Freeman Lawyers acted for the four plaintiffs in Supreme Court proceedings.  Pursuant to those proceedings, Terence Goldberg filed an application for the assessment of his costs with the Supreme Court of NSW, while falsely claiming that he acted for five parties in the matter, with the fifth party being the sixth defendant in the proceedings.  Terence Goldberg did not act for the sixth defendant; a church and registered charity.

Not content with fraudulently seeking his costs against that sixth defendant, Terry Goldberg clandestinely went on to create two new entities to capture the remaining monies as owned by that sixth defendant, and placed that residue as well as other monies of an unknown origin into one of the created entities (a Trust), with a sum in the region of $492,307 thereafter vanishing from same.  In short, this is a story of fraud, money laundering, and serial cover ups.

Keep reading to see the following letters to Juliana Warner, President of the Law Society, which describe the wrongdoing, and also Juliana Warner’s personal ignoring of that wrongdoing.

Dear Ms Warner

Re:  Criminality within the legal profession

As you are quite aware, I have written to the Honourable T F Bathurst, Chief Justice, detailing and providing evidence of criminality within the legal profession, with such correspondences being copied to yourself.  You have made no comment in relation to same.

You are quite aware that Terence Goldberg of Turner Freeman Lawyers made false representations to the Supreme Court of NSW in order to fabricate a debt neither owed to him nor his firm, and you are also aware of the Law Society’s original attempts to protect Mr Goldberg regarding same.

Indeed, and no doubt emboldened by the protection on offer, Mr Goldberg went on what can only be described as an uninhibited crime spree by creating two separate entities to launder monies as fraudulently obtained in the first instance.

You are quite aware that Mr Goldberg’s original fraud triggered a NSW Police investigation, and you are also quite aware that John McKenzie, the legal services commissioner, was interviewed by the NSW Police regarding such in the latter part of 2015.  As you know, if Mr McKenzie had been truthful in his interview with the NSW Police, Terence Goldberg and his accomplices would have been charged with multiple counts of fraud.  No charges followed.

The NSW Police also took the time to inform me that the Law Society of NSW too was approached as part of their investigation into Terence Goldberg’s criminal activities and it was suggested to me by the officers concerned that the Law Society declined to cooperate.

On or around 21st March 2018, an ex-councillor of the Law Society of NSW, and acting as an apparent envoy of same, made a clandestine and improper approach to my employer and gave the directive that my employment was to be terminated as the Law Society was ‘very unhappy’ that I was writing to it about Terence Goldberg’s fraudulent activities and the society’s ongoing covering up of such.

Of course, such clandestine approach is text book corruption.  My employer refused to carry out such directive, and only part complied, presumably to assuage the individuals concerned and being fearful of the consequences if he did not.  I remain employed within that firm.

Preceding the above, and on 16th February 2017, I received correspondence from Baker & McKenzie, acting for the Law Society of NSW, threatening me with court action in relation to my making public of the activities of Mr Goldberg and the Law Society’s covering up of such.  Pauline Wright, the then incumbent President of the Law Society saw fit to threaten me rather than deal with the information as repeatedly brought to her attention.  No court action ensued, and as you know, I continue to speak publicly.

Alas, the above was only a taster of what was to come.  On 20th July 2019, two detectives arrived at my front door.  It appears that John McKenzie, the legal services commissioner, made a complaint to the NSW Police, alleging that he was harassed by my writing letters to his office regarding Terence Goldberg’s conduct and his office’s turning of a blind eye to same.  This was an upsetting experience (to say the least).

I wrote to the NSW Police the following morning attaching copies of four recent letters to Mr McKenzie regarding the corruption taking place within his office, as well as attaching a copy of my letter to Radhika Withana of 8th April 2019, also regarding the corruption taking place within the OLSC, and stated that if the matter were to proceed to Court the said five enclosures would form part of my defence.  As I suspected would occur, Mr McKenzie, and from that moment on, decided he was no longer feeling harassed by my writing to him.

In relation to the matter at hand, Terence Goldberg’s criminal activities commenced when he claimed in an Application for Assessment of Solicitor/Client Costs (as filed with the Supreme Court of NSW on 23rd June 2010) to have acted for a party in Supreme Court proceedings when that party was in fact unrepresented and not his client.  That party was a defendant in the matter, in which Mr Goldberg acted for the four plaintiffs.  In his application to the Court for assessment of his firm’s professional costs, and as you well know, Mr Goldberg makes a multitude of false statements in order to make improper financial gain.

On 7th September 2012, the Law Society, while dismissing all complaints as made against Mr Goldberg in relation to the matter at hand, and after a 17 month long ‘investigation’, stated that:  “The Court did not make any order prohibiting the lawyers in the proceedings from recovering their costs from their clients.

The Order as made by the Court was that each party was to pay their own costs.  The sixth defendant, being unrepresented was not Turner Freeman’s client, and had accrued no costs.

The claim as made by the Law Society of NSW that the sixth defendant was Turner Freeman’s client is absurd.  The Law Society’s statement is designed to mislead and to provide protection to Mr Goldberg and his firm.

As can be seen, and manifestly so, not only has there been a consistent campaign to cover up Mr Goldberg’s criminal activities, but also a campaign of intimidation against those speaking out, lest indeed that the cover up be discovered.

However, and despite the best efforts of those involved, the numerous acts of fraud and the resulting cover ups are common knowledge within the legal arena, with a large number of legal professionals knowing what has taken place and being fearful of speaking out.  That in itself tells its own story.

I trust you will maintain your silence.

Yours faithfully

Dear Ms Warner

Re:  Criminality and corruption within the legal profession

I refer to the above and to previous correspondences to you in relation to same, my most recent being on 12th November 2021.

As you are acutely aware, Terence Goldberg made numerous false statements in an Application for Assessment of Solicitor/Client Costs in order to make improper and fraudulent financial gain.  You are also aware of Mr Goldberg’s ongoing criminal endeavours, and the ongoing cover up of such by both the Law Society of NSW and John McKenzie, the Legal Services Commissioner.

Forgive me if I repeat myself, however, I do so for the sake of clarity.  Terence Goldberg acted for all four plaintiffs in Supreme Court proceedings 2009/00291458-001 (“the 2009 proceedings”).  Pigott Stinson Lawyers acted for the first to fifth defendants, and the sixth defendant, an incorporated association, was an unrepresented party.

In his application to the Court for assessment of his firm’s supposed professional costs, Terence Goldberg claims that he acted for the four plaintiffs and the incorporated association, while also claiming there were five plaintiffs and five defendants.  As you can see, the lie is simple and plain for all to see.

Further, and not content with falsely claiming his costs against the sixth defendant, Mr Goldberg then conspired with the liquidator to take all other funds as owned by the above said sixth defendant, with Mr Goldberg and the liquidator placing the remaining funds, as well as other funds of an unknown origin, into a Trust of their making.  Again, the criminality is plain and entirely obvious.

Despite the obviousness of the wrongdoing involved, both the Law Society and the Office of the Legal Services Commissioner state that no wrongdoing has taken place.  Quite evidently, both of those overseers are turning a very deliberate blind eye.  Such is undeniable.

My letter to you of 12th November 2021 dealt with the Law Society’s covering up of the matter.  However, We need to look a little more closely too at John McKenzie’s direct input into the affair.

Find attached copies of correspondence from John McKenzie to me of 2nd June 2015 and 7th August 2017, and copy of correspondence from Mr McKenzie to Ms Roseanne Beckett of 25th June 2018.  As can be seen, John McKenzie provides false statements to both myself and Ms Beckett in order to improperly dismiss complaints as made to his office, and not so coincidentally, regarding the same solicitor.

As we know, and as previously stated, Terence Goldberg acted for the four plaintiffs only in the 2009 proceedings, however in separate Local Court proceedings, as heard on 26th February 2016 (“the 2016 proceedings”), and in open Court, Terence Goldberg repeats his lie that he acted for the sixth defendant in the 2009 proceedings, while also claiming that the plaintiffs in the 2009 proceedings brought their action on behalf of the sixth defendant in same.  Both of those statements as made by Mr Goldberg in the 2016 proceedings are perjorous.

A complaint was made to the Office of the Legal Services Commissioner regarding Mr Goldberg’s perjorous statements, which, predictably, was instantly dismissed by John McKenzie.  As can be seen from Mr McKenzie’s letter of 7th August 2017, Mr McKenzie lies once more and claims that Terence Goldberg acted for the sixth defendant in the 2009 proceedings.  As everyone knows, the sixth defendant was unrepresented in same.

Preceding the above, and as can be seen in Mr McKenzie’s letter to me of 2nd June 2015, Mr McKenzie admits that Terence Goldberg made false statements in his application to the Court for his costs, however, Mr McKenzie provides the caveat that Mr Goldberg perhaps acted on instructions in doing so.  Again, Mr McKenzie’s improper protection is on full display, as a solicitor, when in dispute with his clients and making an application to the Court for the assessment of the firm’s proposed costs, does not seek instructions from his (presumably now former) clients.  Mr McKenzie’s statement is clearly false, and clearly deliberately so.

Again, and in open Court on 6th April 2018, Terence Goldberg stated that the sum of $30,000.00 as belonging to Roseanne Beckett was in his firm’s trust account.  This statement by Mr Goldberg was knowingly false, with that sum already having been improperly removed from Turner Freeman’s trust account.  Ms Beckett thereafter sought a trust ledger in relation to that sum, and, unsurprisingly, given that the monies were no longer there, Mr Goldberg refused to provide such.

Quite understandably, and given Terence Goldberg’s refusal to provide a trust ledger in relation to her monies, Ms Beckett made a complaint to the Office of the Legal Services Commissioner.  Ms Beckett’s request for a trust ledger fell within the provisions of the Legal Profession Uniform Law.

However, and as can be seen in John McKenzie’s letter to Ms Beckett of 25th June 2018, and while at the same time improperly dismissing Ms Beckett’s complaint, Mr McKenzie defies statute and states to Ms Beckett that “as a client, you are not entitled to a copy of the law practice’s trust account ledger…

As you would know, Mr McKenzie’s statement is not only untrue, but also breaches sections 52(4)(a) and 52(4)(b) of the Legal Profession Uniform General Rules 2015.  Mr McKenzie’s statement is extraordinary, if not utterly outrageous.

In essence, we have a solicitor who can do, and indeed does, whatever he pleases, with the Law Society of NSW and the Office of the Legal Services Commissioner lying to the public in order to cover up Terence Goldberg’s decidedly criminal transgressions.  It cannot be made much clearer than that.

Further, all the above does not include John McKenzie’s dismissal of another complaint made against Terence Goldberg in relation to a forged court stamp on unfiled court documents (in relation to the 2016 proceedings), with such seemingly carried out either by Terence Goldberg himself or under his direct instruction.

It is a simple statement of fact that the Law Society and the Office of the Legal Services Commissioner have not only protected Terence Goldberg despite his egregious and disgraceful conduct, but have in fact provided direct assistance to his criminal endeavours by turning a very distinct blind eye.

Probably the most astonishing aspect of all of this is that both the Law Society and the Office of the Legal Services Commissioner are willing to put untrue statements in writing, passing such off as fact to the unsuspecting and trustful eye.  It is a clear indicator not only of prolific corrupt activity, but also of a lack of oversight and nil accountability.

It should not take numerous letters over a prolonged period to solve the problem of a solicitor carrying out acts of a criminal nature.  It should take only one.

It is my well earned experience that there is little or no honour to be found in the honourable profession.

Yours faithfully

Re:  Criminality and corruption within the legal profession

I refer to the above and to my letter to you of yesterday.

In such letter of yesterday, I stated that funds as belonging to Ms Roseanne Beckett had been improperly removed from Turner Freeman’s trust account.  Such statement requires to be expanded upon.

Roseanne Beckett has a protracted history with Terence Goldberg and his firm, ie Turner Freeman Lawyers.  Ms Beckett spent 10 years in prison for offences she did not commit and was ultimately awarded compensation by the State of NSW.  Terence Goldberg acted for Ms Beckett in her claims against the State.

Terence Goldberg commenced proceedings against Roseanne Beckett as she directed the State of NSW to pay her compensation funds to her directly and not into Turner Freeman’s trust account.  Roseanne Beckett was decidedly cautious regarding her compensation funds being paid to Turner Freeman Lawyers given Terence Goldberg’s well known dishonesty.

Ms Beckett stated, in writing, that she would pay Turner Freeman’s bill of costs when such was received in itemised form.  Terence Goldberg declined to do so, and as above, commenced proceedings against her instead of providing that itemised bill of costs.

In the final hearing of the above proceedings and during cross-examination, as took place on 6th April 2018, Terence Goldberg stated that the sum of $30,000.00 as belonging to Ms Beckett remained in his firm’s trust account.  This statement by Terence Goldberg is untrue.

On 4th May 2018, his Honour handed down judgment and made the Order that Roseanne Beckett pay Turner Freeman’s costs by way of a lump sum costs order of $300,000.00.  Such Order was made due to a provision in Turner Freeman’s costs agreement.

Given Terence Goldberg’s statement in Court that $30,000.00 of Ms Beckett’s money resided in his firm’s trust account, Ms Beckett, of course, paid Turner Freeman the amount of $270,000.00, and sought a receipt for the payment of the full amount while also seeking a trust ledger showing not only the existence of Ms Beckett’s money in Turner Freeman’s trust account, but also the movement of that money into Turner Freeman’s office account.

On 10th May 2018, Mr Goldberg wrote to Ms Beckett advising of the movement of monies from his firm’s trust account to the firm’s office account, together with an office account receipt in the sum of $270,000.00.  Find such attached.  As can be seen, Terence Goldberg not only declines to provide the receipt for the full amount but refuses to provide Ms Beckett with the requested trust ledger, therefore placing him in breach of set down legislation.

Also find attached letter from Terence Goldberg to Ms Beckett of 22nd May 2018 acknowledging the receipt of Ms Beckett’s $30,000.00 into trust on 2nd December 2015.  (You will of course note Mr Goldberg’s misleading statements in his letter of 22nd May 2018 to Ms Beckett.)

As you know, I am employed within a law firm and deal with the accounts on a day to day basis.  It is really very simple.  When a client’s money is transferred from the trust account to the office account, a receipt is issued to the client for that sum.  If requested, a trust ledger is produced to illustrate the movement of those and any other monies as owned by the client.

Very obviously, if the sum of $30,000.00 was moved into Turner Freeman’s office account, together with the input of Roseanne Beckett’s $270,000.00 payment to Turner Freeman, an office account receipt would have been issued in the amount of $300,000.00.  As can be seen in the attached letter from Terence Goldberg to Roseanne Beckett of 10th May 2018, and also in John McKenzie’s letter to Roseanne Beckett of 25th June 2018, this did not occur.

It is evident not only that Roseanne Beckett’s monies had already been removed from Turner Freeman’s trust account, but also that Terence Goldberg’s statement in Court on 6th April 2018 regarding that money is untrue.  As we have seen, it is not the first occasion that Mr Goldberg has provided untrue statements to the Court while under oath.

As you are quite aware from yesterday’s correspondence to you, John McKenzie, the legal services commissioner, has turned his head sideways to all wrongdoing as carried out by Terence Goldberg, and continues to provide favour to same.

As can also be seen, and as illustrated in Mr McKenzie’s letter to Roseanne Beckett of 25th June 2018, Mr McKenzie is prepared to tell any lie necessary in order to continue his protection of Terence Goldberg.

We need to understand why John McKenzie is going to such lengths to protect a solicitor carrying out acts of serious criminal wrongdoing.

Yours faithfully

Dear Ms Warner

Re:  Criminality and corruption within the legal profession

Last Friday I wrote to you about Terence Goldberg’s fraudulent taking of monies from his firm’s trust account, with those monies belonging to his ex-client, Ms Roseanne Beckett.

On reading my letter to you of last Friday, a 77 year old friend said that she felt nauseous at the words she had consumed, while another 88 year old friend said “…it’s fraud, pure and simple”.  Another very good friend of mine, a master carpenter by trade, wrote to me and said “It just shows the level of corruption that goes on within the legal profession.  Some people seem to be very well protected, money talks.

Of course, these are just ordinary folks, and if they can see the fraud and cover ups in front of them, then so can everybody else, including those employed within the Law Society of NSW and the Office of the Legal Services Commissioner.

Let us return to Roseanne Beckett.  Find attached a copy of Roseanne Beckett’s affidavit of 7th March 2018* in relation to the proceedings as brought against her by Terence Goldberg.  On reading such, the litany of wrongdoing is simply overwhelming, and given Mr Goldberg’s previous pillaging of Roseanne’s funds over a protracted period, her decision to seek her compensation funds be paid directly to her is more than understandable.

Roseanne was of the view, and a view shared by many others, that if Terence Goldberg had received her compensation monies, she would have received very little of same.  As can be seen in Roseanne’s affidavit, and as just stated, Terence Goldberg had helped himself to the majority of monies she had previously been awarded in a number of different matters; matters in which Roseanne maintains she had little or no say in the commencement thereof.

Roseanne Beckett was firstly victimised by a corrupt police officer, who it was found had planted a firearm in her home in order to seek her wrongful imprisonment.  As sad as all that is, Roseanne then found herself victim once again to more than one legal ‘professional’ who simply used Roseanne and her situation as a vehicle to make money for themselves, with little or no thought as to the untold misery they caused.  It is nothing short of heinous.

Of course, too, you understand full well why I write the above.  Terence Goldberg is able to continue in his disgraceful conduct given that the Law Society and the Office of the Legal Services Commissioner have given him carte blanche to do so, with both of those bodies making untruthful statements as a method of dismissing all complaints against him.

You understand too why I persist in writing.  I always say to people only say what needs to be said and only say what you know.  I write simply because it all needs to be said.  Indeed, if I were to write regarding all the wrongdoing I witness taking place within the legal profession, I would be writing all day and night for weeks (if not months) to come.

And what does the Law Society do?  It would seem that those employed to maintain the rule of law snigger into the backs of their hands while handing out threats to those seeking justice and doing anything but the jobs they are being paid to do, and being paid more than handsomely, may I hasten to add.

And what do you do?  You say and do nothing, while being answerable to nobody.

It is indeed a sorry state of affairs.

Yours faithfully

*     John McKenzie, the legal services commissioner, received a copy of Roseanne Beckett’s affidavit on 21st March 2018, however, and as is his way, Mr McKenzie turned a blind eye to its contents.

Dear Ms Maslen-Stannage

Please see below E-mail to Juliana Warner of 15 January 2020, enclosing letter to Terence Goldberg of Turner Freeman Lawyers of 4 November 2019.  As you know, such correspondence to Mr Goldberg spells out criminal conduct and Mr Goldberg’s part in such.  Ms Warner was the Senior Vice-President of the Law Society of NSW on the date I wrote to her, and Ms Warner’s only response was to block my E-mail address.

As we can see, Ms Warner has been aware of the criminal conduct for quite some time and is now the president of the association which seemingly organised the cover up of such in the first instance.

It is my understanding that Ms Warner was the managing partner of the Sydney branch of Herbert Smith Freehills in January 2020, and at the time of my writing to her.

Dear Ms Maslen-Stannage

If we were to simplify matters, it would be fair to say that what we have here is an organised criminal network at play, with certain members of the legal profession providing direct assistance to those carrying out their criminal acts; Juliana Warner of Herbert Smith Freehills among them.

As you have seen, Terence Goldberg acted with others to create a debt not owed to him or his firm, lying to the Court in so doing, and then conspired with a liquidator to take all other monies as owned by the entity concerned (being an incorporated association and charity).  Terence Goldberg then placed the monies as fraudulently obtained, as well as other monies from an unknown source, into a Trust of his and the liquidator’s making, with some of those funds in the region of $492,000 thereafter leaving the Trust and simply vanishing without trace.  Very clearly, the above could not have taken place without the direct assistance of various overseeing authorities by way of turning a very deliberate blind eye.

Indeed, every single thing I have written has been based on documentary evidence and fact, otherwise such would neither have been claimed nor alleged.  It is truly a web of corruption, even if the assistance offered is simply the maintaining of a deafening silence.  The covering up of the above has been both calculated and intentional.

Finally, as you know, I forwarded to you an E-mail (and enclosed letter) as sent to Juliana Warner on 22 November 2021.  I also sent a previous E-mail to Richard Tadros at the Law Society on 20 November 2021 regarding trust irregularities.  However, my mailserver informs me that neither of those E-mails have arrived at their intended destination, so it would appear that Ms Warner has once again seen fit to block my communications.  Ms Warner is clearly very desperate to stem the flow of information.

Perhaps you could tell Ms Warner that blocking E-mails does not make the problem go away, and I would be grateful if you could forward to Ms Warner my letter of 22 November 2021 on my behalf.

May I respectfully ask that you provide a response to my recent letters, in particular my letters to you as dated 12th November, 18th November, and 19th November 2021.

As you are very well aware, such correspondences raise with you improper conduct as taking place within the Law Society of NSW and the Office of the Legal Services Commissioner, and indeed the covering up of criminal conduct within the legal profession by both of those overseeing bodies.

It is of note that while refusing to respond to my letters to you, you briefed and instructed Baker & McKenzie Lawyers while making baseless and somewhat extraordinary claims against me.  Such has been made known to that firm.  Further, it is my understanding that no evidence was provided to Baker & McKenzie in relation to the claims made, with your claims being made on a hearsay and non-evidentiary basis.

Please respond to the aforementioned letters without any further delay.

In the closing paragraphs of the first of the above letters, I speak about a campaign from within the Law Society of NSW to cover up the transgressions of Mr Goldberg, while also speaking about the campaign of intimidation against those attempting to make such publicly known.

Rather than respond to the above said correspondences (or indeed do anything about the matter), you, and more so the law firm you retained in an attempt to suppress the publication of such, set out on a course of relentless intimidation in order to further the cover up of the said criminal conduct of Terence Goldberg of Turner Freeman Lawyers.

It would appear that you do not fully comprehend the seriousness of the situation, nor indeed the irony of your own conduct.
