I filed a formal complaint with the Washington...
I filed a formal complaint with the Washington State Bar Association, attaching the letter. A copy of my complaint is at this link, as well as their first response.
The Bar responded that they wish to defer their investigation of this matter until the end of litigation. Unfortunately, this will encourage the attorney to delay the case for as long as possible. There has been no discovery requests served to Mr. Tang. Mr. Tang is now indexing and cataloging his exhibits with the help of my attorney. This will save tremendously on costs as this case progresses.
I have asked the Bar to go forward with their investigation since delaying it will prejudice Mr. Tang. The attorney can then, someday into the far future, (when Mr. Tang thinks this is behind him), will get pounded with a lot of discovery requests, and wouldn't be ready for his defense. As of this moment, we are preparing interrogatories and requests for admission to serve on the plaintiff. The steps are: 1) organize your evidence, 2) catalog it for fast retrieval as exhibits and 3) drafting the first set of interrogatories so they can be served to the plaintiff.

Do you know why I'm so passionate about this...
Do you know why I'm so passionate about this Nelson Tang thing? I have been embroiled in at least one lawsuit or another (right now, I'm in two) for the past nineteen years. Usually it's a really bad attorney thinking they can get money from us with huge threats like the one Nelson is receiving. Because I have excellent lawyers, they work with me as a team to make sure that we take our story to court and not settle unfair claims. To me that's extortion.
One attorney who sent me about as bogus as a letter as the one Nelson received got a sanction of about $19,000 because it infuriated a Federal Judge. (personal sanction - not covered by malpractice). The lawyer sent me the check in the mail from his personal account.
I have another lawsuit where the plaintiff out of the blue blurted out testimony (without even being asked) that he was adding 12.5% to my credit card charges, and giving 10% in cash to my ex-VP. Nobody asked, he just puffed this out like it was nothing. This gave us an instant countersuit, and they were both reported the the U.S. Department of Justice for embezzling us out of an estimated $180,000

Can you post a clearer photo of the entire letter sent to Nelson? I know there is a petition as well, but only snippets are shown on there.

Hi there, Is there a link to see the photos taken at the wedding, or is there no release for that. I would be curious to see what he sees what this client is calling grounds for this.

I know this isn't much but if everyone just gave a dollar in the photography community he would have more than enough. So the fact that I can't give a lot isn't going to stop me from giving a little. Can the donation minimal be changed to a 1.00? I think a lot more people would do it and a lot of people giving a dollar would add up fast. A dollar or 2 isn't much to ask for from one person but could really add up fast in big groups like this. I had my form filled out and it wouldnt let me give anything under 5. I would hate to think that we could be missing out on a lot of smaller donations just because the system simply wont let you. I feel so bad for him and don't want this to happen to anyone else. Weddings are hard work.

Gary, thank you dor doing this. The implications of this bully attorney winning this law suit are terrible for the photography industry! We support this cause and we already donated to help Nelson Tang. I hope we all learn valuable lessons from this experience and that Nelson Tang wins.

I would like to find the claimant's name and the name of his law firm. I have found the King County 'public record search' but am unable to locate any documentation. Gary, would you please post a link to the proper search page? Thank you for doing all of this - it truly needs to be done.

This is absolutely reprehensible. This lawyer should be arrested for extortion. His tactics should be posted publicly for everyone to see what a horrible person he is.

I am Vietnamese myself. I hope the fact that one person; the lawyer whom is suing is Vietnamese, does not change the way everybody sees the rest of us. I will be donating.
