  • guest_7473 : All I see on Facebook is bad stuff about lawyers and judges. I bet there is more corrupt lawyers and judges in this country,,than drug dealers and thieves.
  • guest_4256 : Its the JUST THIS SYSTEM.
  • guest_4256 : The second a lawyer graduates law school, they should be loaded on a bus, and taken right to JAIL.

  • guest_8077 : the company LegalTRAP (aka legalmatch) make money three fold, 1. sue the atty who dont want thier sh*t leads because they are locked in some BS contract and would do any just to get out of it. 2. Take the same sh*t lead subscription and sell it to another desperate Atty (i.e. Fresh Grad from Law school who would do anything for that one awesome case) 3. Do a commission Charge back the Sales person who sold the the previous atty who wanted out.
  • guest_8077 : The company is crap.
  • guest_8077 : Also this guy Is so in love with himself.
  • guest_8077 : All those Talking good about him on this Post are either Employees that were pressured to write awesome things about him or Interns that he gave a lot of empty promises to.
  • guest_7832 : I notice people think we all are talking about two different people here, but this slimeball is guilty of both sexually assaulting a 14 year old girl AND had previously served prison time for stealing/deleting information from another company.
  • guest_8441 :
  • guest_8444 : I think guest_7332 is this rapist named Dmitry! So defensive. Deport this felon! Why is this not major news?
  • guest_5887 : What a schmuck
  • guest_831 : Definite pattern here. There are just too many lawyers.
  • guest_7332 : You people are stupid. gets your facts straight. He did not serve 4 1/2 years in prison, actually less than the minimum of 1 1/2 years. You should immediately take this down!!!!
  • guest_2973 : He should be held accountable for not just the one account of sexual misconduct, but every account that is on record. Not sure why the perpetrator is not being held fully accountable. Inappropriate boundaries were crossed and there is an obvious use and display of him using his power for his own personal gain (in this instance, to get his sexual needs met). As we know from our current state of affairs, these perpetrators don't strike only once.
  • guest_1632 : So glad justice was served
  • guest_3132 : Great story though. Thompson lost his home,wife,family,money,friends,status,and reputation. Karma at it's best. Just sucks for people affected by this CROOK.
  • guest_3132 : If everyone is commenting on Thompson. This guy is big time crook and lots of people lost their home and lots of money. He should be serving time but can't be found bc he is hiding from justice. I know this bc I'm one of the victims who lost a home and 10's of thousands of $$. HE IS A CROOK.
  • guest_6428 : The legal profession is riddled with criminals.
  • TH : I think this thread must be talking about different people.
  • innocent mother : My son wants to come back home. I want my son back. Stop blackmailing me
  • guest_3603 : And for the record its not someone thinks anything theres proof.and now his time to pay up dont go away cuz hes a spoiled slickster that's finally getting exposed
  • guest_3603 : His dad is dr.labadie at west jeff ogbyn and one of his brothers is the president of the same hospital so if money was the answer he have Avenues to make money.the question is y is he hiding
  • TH : Just because you think you are owed monies does not make it true. He still has a right to monies owed him for his work. You want to blame someone, blame the ODC. If you cut a persons legs off, they can’t walk. If he can’t work as an attorney, he can’t remedy you (provided you are owed anything).
  • guest_3603 : Where he at so i can face him and he can remedy me guest_6477
  • Joe : He was never arrested for drugs. It was a rumor started by a group of lawyers to try and destroy his credibility. The injustices that have occurred in that town are unbelievable. It is full of corrupt lawyers and judges and law enforcement. The whole lot of them should be tried.
  • guest_8100 : Drug charges, that’s laughable. Obvious that facts mean nothing to you. I agree with previous person. He helped me time and time again and didn’t charge me a cent. He was an awesome coach and this is all bull$h!t!
  • guest_6477 : This has been a witch hunt and is full of false “facts”. He is a good man, father, husband, coach and attorney. You measure a person by the way he falls, I measure him by the way he rises.
  • guest_6477 : He is a fellow colleague of mine and because of the interim suspension, he was prevented from working on his clients behalf. This has been a witxh
  • guest_6477 : ...which she agreed to but did not compensate him. He has given much to this community and helped many with zero compensation. He is owed hundreds of thousands of dollars. His whereabouts are known as he is trying to remedy any person he harmed.
  • guest_6477 : Your facts are wrong. He was never arrested for drugs and does not do drugs. I’ve know him all my life. He had an interim suspension because of a claim which prevented him from completing his duty to his clients. This was brought about by a disgruntled client’s daughter who felt she was owed money from her family members’s suit. This suspension prevented him from earning a living so he could make restitution. This client in question had him perform other services for her family membe
  • guest_4980 : Guest _2656 how do you know he didn't scam people. Awful strong remarks if you have not been on the other side of the story. He caused this don't blame game here. He's quilty of a lot of things. Not doing his job and being arrested for cocaine not once. So I'm not judging you I'm starting facts and you are defending obviously a friend of yours a suspension due to drug charges. Public is not as stupid as you people in the court house and system think we are. Go join him. If it was a regular perso
  • guest_7949 : He's a scumbag. Just the tip of the iceberg. He's ripped off many people. Should be in jail!!!
  • guest_9016 : This dude is hiding and the court is help him.he owes alot of ppl money and dont have to pay it back and was a client that he was trying to get me time cuz he kno he ran off with my money
  • guest_2656 : Ridiculous! This attorney stole zero! He was prohibited from completing his work for his clients because of a suspension that should not have occurred. A witch hunt was carried out by the very people he spent his life trying to help. He was owed hundreds of thousands of dollars which the LA Bar Association failed to help him recoup. This is Louisiana politics at its worst.
  • Joe : Nice to see lots of lawyers going to jail.
  • Mike : Crazy Story..
  • guest_5706 : This lawyer is a wack job!
  • guest_1134 : Why does it take so long to investigate these crimes?

RipOffReport & PissedConsumer Removal Scheme: Attorney Aaron Kelly, Richart Ruddie, and Attorney Daniel Warner Under Investigation

By USA Herald

Attorney Aaron Kelly Heads Up The Firm

Earlier this year we wrote an in-depth article about dozens of suspicious court filings that aimed to remove RipOffReport, PissedConsumer, and other consumer advocacy sites from Google.  TechDirt along with The Washington Post originally reported that Attorney Aaron KellyRichart Ruddie, and Attorney Daniel Warner were the primary suspects behind these filings, where the defendants were non-existant, signatures were forged, and fake notaries were used.

***11/1/17 Update – Arizona Bar Investigation Into Attorney Aaron Kelly & Attorney Daniel Warner Continues***

It seems that Google has closely reviewed many of the RipOffReport and PissedConsumer removal lawsuits that Kelly, Ruddie, and Warner filed…resulting in Google re-indexing these once-removed RipOffReport/PissedConsumer web results.

The Nexus Between Kelly, Ruddie, and Warner

Records show that Richart Ruddie has worked closely with both Attorney Kelly and Attorney Warner in the past.   Going all the way back to 2012, Attorney Kelly represented Richart Ruddie in a case where he was accused of deceptive trade practices that included these allegations:

Claims alleged against Richart Ruddie in the lawsuit included:


  • False Designation of Origin
  • Violation of Rights of Publicity
  • Deceptive Trade Practices
  • Civil Conspiracy
  • Unjust Enrichment
  • Conversion

Sources have claimed that Richart Ruddie became a referral partner to the Kelly Warner Law Firm, sending over clients to have their negative press on sites like RipOffReport de-indexed.

Also, on at least 1 occasion, Richart Ruddie was hired by Attorney Daniel Warner as a professional witness in a Federal Civil case.   Video footage would show that the Plaintiff in that case was friends with Ruddie and snowboarded with him on numerous occasions.  Additionally it would seem that there would be conflict in hiring a professional witness that is actually a client…potentially waving attorney-client privilege rights.

Last, but not least, records show that Richart Ruddie filed very suspicious litigation to remove a RipOffReport from Google about Attorney Daniel Warner.   Here are the details of that filing from this previous article:

Lawsuit 4 – Ruddie v. Kirschner

This is, if fraudulent, the most egregious lawsuit of the bunch.  Here, Attorney Daniel Warner appears to have orchestrated a fraudulent legal scheme to have a RipOffReport published about him removed from Google. This RipOffReport written about Attorney Warner is likely written by his aggrieved former client, Charles Rodrick. Though the website has heavily redacted the report, you can find the previous version here.


The Arizona Republic covered Rodrick’s grievances in depth.

Daniel Warner, who has been called as a witness in the federal case and testified Wednesday, said Rodrick filed a complaint with the State Bar of Arizona alleging misconduct after Warner withdrew from the case.

 Rodrick accused Warner of violating several professional rules, including fraudulent billing, conflict of interest and revealing privileged attorney-client information through an article on the firm’s blog last year with the headline, “Two men, one extortion racket website?”

Rodrick even went so far as to file a bar complaint.
Considering the likelihood that Charles Rodrick wrote the RipOffReport, Attorney Warner’s subsequent actions are puzzling, at best.

Attorney Daniel Warner’s friend and colleague, Richart Ruddie, whom Warner has a relationship with and has worked with on multiple occasions, appears to have filed a fake lawsuit to deindex the RipOffReport.   NOTE: Kelly Warner represented Richart Ruddie in the Walters v. Coopers Picks LLC case where  Richart Ruddie was sued for Conspiracy and Deceptive Trade Practices.


In what appears as an attempt to hide Richart Ruddie’s identity, Ruddie filed a lawsuit listing his name as “R. Derek Ruddie” against another seemingly fake defendant named “Jake Kirschner” that chose to represent himself pro se.

“R. Derek Ruddie” AKA “Richart Derek Ruddie” claims that “Defendant Kirschner (Defendant) posted false and defamatory statements about Plaintiff Ruddie (Plaintiff)  here.

Interestingly, R. Derek Ruddie (Richart Ruddie) is not mentioned one single time in the RipOffReport listing about Daniel Warner.  Yet, Ruddie claims in his lawsuit that he was “harmed” by the RipOffReport about Daniel Warner.

Considering the history that Daniel Warner and Richart Ruddie have together, and Warner’s history of similar lawsuits that appear to have fraudulent elements, it would seem that Attorney Warner, the true beneficiary of this filing, may have played a role in this suit as well.

This lawsuit filed by Richart Ruddie with the ultimate beneficiary being Daniel Warner appears to have the following characteristics:

  • Fake defendant representing herself pro se
  • False assertions
  • Purpose was to remove negative material from Google.

This is not Daniel Warner’s first time attempting to de-index the listing.
In fact, on June 23, 2015, less than 5 months before Richart Ruddie filed the lawsuit, it appears that Attorney Warner attempted to take down the RipOffReport listing by claiming that the picture listed on the report violated his copyright because it was taken from LinkedIn.”

Arizona Bar & Federal Investigation

Attorney Aaron Kelly & Attorney Daniel Warner have been under investigation by the Arizona Bar for 8+ months now.  UCLA Law Professor Eugene Volokh originally reported these lawyers to the ABA back in March shortly before he ran this article

The Arizona Bar brought the investigation forward as the complainant.   We can only speculate that the Bar is taking this investigation seriously, however until a probably cause finding it is unlikely that we’ll receive any updates other than the fact that there is still an investigation ongoing.

We have also received confirmation from a source that the FBI is involved in the investigation.   No further information is available at this time.

PissedConsumer & Texas AG Taking A Strong Stance Against Fake Deindexing Filings

Consumer advocacy sites like PissedConsumer, which have been the target of many of the deindexing filings by Kelly, Ruddie, and Warner, are fighting back.  Also the Texas Attorney General recently filed suit against another group that is accused of filing fake lawsuits to remove negative publicity from Google.

We covered those stories here.
