American Military Poverty Law Project
-- AND BIGGEST FEE FRAUD ARTIST?
In May of 1997, after Nary's legal liaision contacted the Dreisbach family of Palm Springs, California, Dr. Philip and Jeanette Dreisbach promptly flew up to San Francisco and tried to help the impoverished sailor Steven R. Nary.
Nary stood accused by San Francisco District Attorney Terance Hallinan of first degree murder.
The Dreisbachs sought referrals from political lawyers in San Francisco, who floated George G. Walker's name among a few others. Douglas Schmidt, who was a defense lawyer in the notorious Dan White, George Moscone and Harvey Milk homicide case, were among those solicited.
After George G. Walker learned that his name was floated to the Dreisbach family as a successor to Jeff Brown, the incompetent San Francisco Public Defender, Walker faxed some the names of some five hundred cases he'd been involved in during his checkered career.
However, the cagey Walker did not inform the Dreisbachs, or sailor Steven Nary, of the disposition of his five hundred criminal cases. Walker omitted the number of those cases, which were:·
Because the Dreisbach family was bamboozled by this experienced flim-flam man, they were initially conned into giving George G. Walker a $5,000 check. Walker was directed to fully investigate the facts of the case, and specifically do a written analysis. Instead, Walker flew up to Seattle, where he is originally from. The Uss Carl Vinson had been reassigned from Alameda, California to Bremerton, Washington which is close to Seattle.
After Walker returned from Seattle, he claimed to have boarded the Vinson and investigated the facts in the case. However, there is no proof that he investigated anything. To this day, Walker refuses to provide proof that he investigated the case for which he was fully prepaid in order to prepare and try.
Inexplicably, Walker then conned the Dreisbachs into giving him $30,000 cash (a second check) which was in full payment for
George G. Walker claimed that he served in the US Army Air Corps; if this is true, then Walker knew or should have known that when a civilian enters the Federal Military, that civilian's status changes from civilian to military, under Title 10 US Code, the Universal Code of Military Justice, and Title 32 Code of Federal Regulations 720. This is pursuant to IN RE GRIMLEY, 137 U.S. 147 (1890)
Dr. Philip Dreisbach, a credible and ethical medical board certified physician, and Mrs. Jeanette Dreisbach, his wife and a hematologist, are experts on communicable diseases, such as HIV, AIDS. They are also the reputable and credible medical proprietors of the Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho California. One of their sons had played basketball with Steven Nary, that's how the Dreisbachs knew Nary.
Despite Walker's treachery, and even after the Dreisbachs had been conned into fully prepaying Walker twice, they still insisted that Walker do what San Francisco's Public Defender Jeff Brown refused to do; Specifically
court filing, which is also part of the federal court filings were censored in
the local San Francisco media commisars Philip Bronstein and Scott. Bronstein
was formerly the editor of the old San Francisco Examiner, a Hearst newspaper.
Scott Graham, is the editor of the RECORDER, a legal reporting paper owned by
the American Media Legal Reporting newspaper chain.
Walker urged the accused Steven Nary to agree to a plea bargain. Nary refused. Once Steven Nary refused, Walker stopped communicating with his client.
Because of Walker's refusal to communicate with sailor Nary, unless he agreed to the sham plea bargain, Nary sought Raul Almacen's advice.
Former Army legal officer, Raul Almacen, although seriously ailing, also informed Walker of Hallinan's violations of Nary's military due process and habeas corpus rights. Almacen further informed Walker that Hallinan refused to respect and comply with Federal Title 32 and Title 10 of the US Code/Universal Military Code of Justice regulations that the US Supreme Court for over 150 years, have repeatedly ruled are the law of the land.
Walker was also reminded by Almacen that local jailors/ sheriffs have to maintain federal military personnel, who are detained in local jails, in conditions equal to that of a military brig. There is very specific federal civil and military court martial case law on this eighth amendment constitutional issue.
Walker and Dressler ignored these violations to protect their relation$hip with Nary's abusers in this Federal case. Nary's special investigator had discovered that:
From May of 1997 to the summer of 1998, instead of fighting for Nary, Walker filed the majority of the approximately 50 illegal continuances in this case in order to keep Nary in jail and isolated. By doing so, Walker hoped that Nary would take a plea bargain and plead guilty to the trumped-up first degree murder charge.
Walker also committed perjury -- claiming falsely that, "Nary gave himself up to Hallinan and [to] the San Francisco police." Walker concealed the fraudulent delivery document (link to doc) that was fabricated by D.A. Hallinan's employee, Peter Cling.
This was a physical impossibility, because Nary was on a federal military base, and was locked up in the Carl Vinson's brig, under armed marine guard.
In later testimony dated October 25, 1996, San Francisco Police Officer Bergstrom testified that, " I have no authority on a United States Ship." But Walker covered up for Hallinan, his political buddy, and Walker perjured himself in sworn signed testimony.
However, when attorney Raul Almacen, who knew of Walker's duplicity in other cases, learned of Walker's treachery, after Nary sought Almacen's experienced legal advice, Raul Almacen strongly advised Steven Nary to refuse any plea bargain. Once this became clear to Walker, Walker then dumped the Nary case and refused to return the $35,000 given to him by the Dreisbachs to defend Nary, and file for a change of venue to federal court.
Further, if Nary had taken Walker's plea bargain bait, Nary was advices that he would never have any recourse in court for damages to his civil and military rights.
Unlike Texas, which caps financial recovery at $10,000 in illegal incarceration cases, California is the only state that provides recovery at $100 a day.
Among George G. Walker's other controversial connections are:
Hell's Angels Drug alleged manufacture and distribution case.
Note: Although Alan Dressler did nothing for Nary, except to shake his hand and pat him on the back, Dressler got $10,000 for that handshake.
Throughout the entire year and half, from 1997 to the summer of 1998, whenever Walker was confronted by his failure to defend Nary, and his refusal to communicate with Nary, Walker tried threats and intimidation. This is according to a credible witness, Peter Paul.
In one notorious
confrontation with Nary's legal Liaison, Walker bellowed:
Finally, when Walker was exasperated with Nary's refusal to fall for Walker's con job plea bargain ploy, Walker dumped Nary and told him, "There are more important cases than you."
Subsequently, Walker then took on other cases, such as the Aparicio case (alleged assault), and the Cleola Love case (real estate); Walker ripped off both these clients. Cleola Love, a US Army veteran, sued Walker in the now infamous "No Love Lost Case."
Walker has again surfaced trying to do his usual plea bargain in the BALCO steroids case. And this time it was the U.S. Department of Justice that rejected his offer.
Competent and ethical lawyers, who have followed Walker's controversial career made these observations on George G. Walker.
"He's lazy." "You can't trust him." " He should have been disbarred a long time ago."
Newman David Fowler, who also knew Walker well from the Black Panther days, commented to Veritas, " Walker is treacherous."
But the former San Francisco Housing Commissioner, Janice Allen, knew Walker and his malpractice for thirty years. She told Nary's legal liaison that, "After ripping off a black client, Walker was taken into an alley and beaten up:"
This was Jan Allen's epitaph for Walker: "He's no good."
