Vax Rights Atty Legal Defense Fund
Please contribute to my legal defense fund! In brief:
Someone at the NC State Bar apparently doesn't like what I do for a living, so they have initiated proceedings with the apparent pre-determined end goal of taking my license. on false pretenses. This is not just an attack on me personally, it's an attack on the entire vaccine awareness movement, as I am literally the only attorney in the U.S. who does what I do. If I lose, the entire movement loses something important. For more on my work, please see www.vaccinerights.com.
Meanwhile, the NC Bar recently took the unprecedented step of filing a lawsuit against me, demanding that I hand over years of my clients' files. This not only violates my clients' sacred right to attorney-client confidentiality, the NC Bar doesn't even have the legally required "allegation of misconduct" for the underlying (so-called) investigation! That's right--they want years of clients' files, but they are not even accusing me of doing anything wrong!
The NC Bar investigator wants to dig around in my clients' files to see if he can find something wrong, but this would be an unlawful "fishing expedition" (actual legal term)--a blatant due process violation. If he doesn't find something, though, he'll make something up, as I have proof that he has done that before, and others claim the NC Bar has done this with them...
And there's a good chance that the court will rubber-stamp the Bar's demand. The system protects itself! But projects are underway to address that concern...
The NC Bar investigator also wants to know where my clients live, so he can involve other state bars in his witch hunt...
Most of what I do is volunteer work--radio shows, conferences, legislative activism nationally, time with emails and phone calls, etc., so I can't afford to hire an attorney for my defense, but I do need one!

Meanwhile, the original story is here:
A Recap and Update on the NC Bar Lawsuit:
May 2018: The NC State Bar sues Attorney Phillips (unlawfully, according to Phillips) demanding years of confidential client files. If Alan defies a court order, he can go to jail for civil contempt. The Bar demanded a hearing immediately!
June 2018: The Bar agreed to postpone a hearing until after Alan Responded to their Petition. The Response was filed in July.
September 2018: The Bar postponed the hearing again, to conduct "discovery"--a catch-all phrase for getting information and documents. Hearing this fall or in early 2019?
Alan's response to discovery: According to Alan, NC Bar attorneys made up facts and law to issue a fake warning letter in 2017, and they are unlawfully demanding client files, while unlawfully suppressing good-faith complaints against themselves. Should Alan cooperate with these people? We'll see...
July - Present: A group of 270+ clients are looking for representation to intervene in the lawsuit, to protect their confidential client information. They have rights, too! Other interventions are possible as well...
Coming: Other steps are in the works to address this issue in even bigger ways. Stay tuned, your help will be needed!
