Attorney_Daniel-Warner_USAHERALD

 

UPDATE: 06/29/2017

Court documents, Arizona State Bar and media reports have confirmed the law firm of Kelly Warner is under Federal Investigation surrounding a series of suspicious lawsuits uncovered by UCLA Law Professor Eugene Volokh along with attorney Paul Levy.

Over the last several months many articles have been written exposing the alleged frauds including Fake Lawsuits, Fake Defendants, Fake Signatures,Fake Notarized Documents JUST TO NAME A FEW.

Bradley Perry heading up the Arizona state bar investigation has confirmed that the state bar took the initiative themselves to file a complaint against Attorney Daniel Warner & Attorney Aaron Kelly. Bradley Perry documented that they feel the case is strong enough that the actual victim complaint was not necessary. (It seemed odd that the victim would not be able to file their own complaint) It is unclear at this point if Attorney Raees Mohamed will be added to the investigation after another alleged fake lawsuit involving Ryan McMahon and Megan Welter AKA Megan Allen was recently uncovered. Recently attorney Paul Levy representing  AVVO filed a motion to dissolve the injunction against AVVO  in Maricopa County Superior Court outlining the details of the alleged fraud. Paul Levy also outlines on his website 

It appears someone from the Kelly Warner Law Firm has been attempting to post various responses on blogs that somehow this is simply a previous client attempting to smear the name of Kelly Warner Law Firm however since the investigation was initiated by a UCLA Law Professor when he uncovered several fake lawsuits with fake notarized signatures tied to the law firm this is obviously a desperate attempt to place blame where it does not belong.

Daniel Warner & Aaron Kelly also seem to have a close relationship to Richart Ruddie. Richart Ruddie filed a fake lawsuit on behalf of Daniel Warner using what appear to be a fake 17 year old that died of cancer. Richart Ruddie has admitted his involvement in other fake lawsuits in open court. Since the federal judge in Maryland uncovered the scheme Richart Ruddie and has paid thus far 71,000 in restitution after the judge referred the matter to the US attorneys office. Sources have confirmed FBI interviews are taking place and the investigation is very active.

 

The Kelly Warner Law Office has been vacant for several weeks and phone calls have not been returned for comment.

Stay tuned we will keep you updated.
