WolfBlockgrew to over 300 lawyers over a 100 year period, and now we are supposed to believe that their sudden demise had nothing to do with corruption rearing its ugly head

The official press goes on and on and on about how wonderful this firm and its partners were, and how "shocking" was their sudden demise.

  1. WolfBlock has been deeply embedded in the shady workings of our corrupt Federal Government as a leading lobbyist firm and "government relations" law specialist; as well as having a number of their partner lawyers obtain powerful public official roles within our government.
  2. WolfBlock was a recognized leader in the corrupt bankruptcy industry :

The 'corrupt powers that be' would like you readers of BankruptcyMisconduct.com to believe that the efforts of a growing list of brave industry whistleblowers such as Lynn LoPucki, Joseph Doherty, Laser Haas, Meryl Lanson, Crystal Cox, Ramkrishna Tare, Mary Alice Gwynn, and Mark Adams - had nothing to do with the inevitable catharsis which is just begging to dismantle the corrupt foundations of the bankruptcy industry.

Just a coincidence... Nobody was closing up shop to protect any skeletons in the client file closet... No particular lawyers were cornered into a difficult position during preliminary investigations which resulted in the rest of the rat cage scurrying for safer ground and cover...

To you "professional" bankruptcy industry lawyers, liquidators, and judges who have engaged in or witnessed corruption with the bankruptcy component of our legal system: head well our warnings lest the window to cut your own deal of your own volition ... is closed.
