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!

Please help!

Nov 12, 2018:

[Recap; Update below] The North Carolina State Bar is suing the nation's leading Vaccine Rights Attorney, Alan Phillips, J.D., demanding the private files of 100's of Phillips' clients from across the nation, so they can engage in an unlawful "fishing expedition" (dig around to see if they can find a problem). Yet, the Bar is not even accusing Phillips of any specific wrongdoing. Moreover, Phillips has proof that that NC Bar attorneys invented facts and law to build a case against him to take his license, and he needs your help to expose the corruption. This affects everyone in the Vaccine Awareness Movement, so please read on!

Alan Phillips is the nation's only attorney who works with clients, attorneys, legislators and activists nationally concerning vaccine exemptions in all of the exemption categories: birth, daycare, school, college, employment, military, immigration, child custody disputes, intn'l travel, etc. North Carolina is "Vaccine Central" to the pharmaceutical industry. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see what's going on here, folks!

----------------------
UPDATE Nov 11, 2018:

In recent weeks, a Client Group of about 270 of Phillips' former clients from around the country have sought legal representation as a group, to intervene in the NC Bar's lawsuit against Phillips. They do *not* want their private client files be turned over to the NC State Bar. If state officials can dig through client files for no specific reason, then no client's files are safe!

Meanwhile, Phillips had to fire his attorney. The attorney didn't disagree with Phillips that the real issue is misconduct by NC State Bar attorneys, he just refused to address it (presumably, to protect himself). So, Phillips and the Client Group are now both looking for representation. So far, NC attorneys are either afraid to challenge the Bar or their firm won't let them take the case. Protecting themselves is understandable, but that's also what allows the corruption to take root and flourish, making it all the harder for others to clean up the mess later.

The NC Bar keeps waffling. First, they demanded a court hearing right after initiating the lawsuit in May 2018. Now they want "discovery"--answers to questions, documents, etc. (so they can make up facts and law to use against Phillips like they did before with Phillips and others). However, Phillips is objecting to discovery due to the blatant conflict of interest. The Bar attorneys can't lawfully prosecute a case against Phillips when Phillips, and several organizations around the country, have filed complaints against the NC Bar attorneys concerning matters related to the lawsuit, and those complaints have never been properly addressed. So, Phillips will ask the court to order the Bar to get outside counsel to address the conflict of interest. A hearing on that request could be later this month or in sometime in December. The court must either order the Bar to get outside counsel or ignore the conflict. So far, the Bar has illegally suppressed the complaints against its own attorneys; more on that soon...

Meanwhile, the solution is to put a spotlight on the corruption, and we need your help! We must multiply Petition numbers! Millions of Americans are concerned about vaccines, but very few have signed the petition. Please sign the petition yourself, and share the links below to encourage everyone who supports the right to vaccine informed choice to sign the petition, too! (The petitions demand that complaints against the Bar be investigated--that the Bar be prevented from putting itself about the law by suppressing those complaints.) Then, stay tuned, there's more to come as this illegal lawsuit plays out, and your help will be needed again!

In May 2018, the NC State Bar filed a lawsuit against the nation's leading Vaccine Rights Attorney, Alan Phillips, J.D. (NC is "Vaccine Central" in the pharma world.) Alan claims the lawsuit is illegal. Meanwhile, the Bar attorneys are suppressing multiple complaints against themselves, in blatant violation of conflict of interest rules. In response, Alan and Rights Activists nationally are taking steps to put a spotlight on the Bar corruption, for the protection of clients everywhere, and to save Alan's law license and career.

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!
