Where to follow me while legal action in progress

Until the law has dealt with the issues mentioned in this blog I have agreed not to post any more. At no time did I agree to remove anything.

What I have to say is the unmitigated truth. Unlike my siblings and their lawyer scum, I have nothing to hide.

I noticed my siblings have carried on their relentless character defamation against me, and so I consider my agreement is not binding, but for the time being I remain with it.

Meanwhile you can follow my unrelated insights on my website.




A “professional” lawyer? Well I don’t think so!

Disclaimer: I will be adding links to the evidence once I’v masked out details that could incriminate innocent third parties.

This matter has dragged on for many years. Without exception, everything I’ve had to say has been ignored, or flippantly dismissed by the New Zealand legal machine. Not once were MY interests, or the true wishes of the deceased even contemplated by the puffed up bigots, that administer our New Zealand law.

So, when I discovered that an unidentified authority had been granted to unidentified estate executors, without anyone even letting me even know that an application had been made , well… once again I wrote a perfectly open and honest request for legal advice, to an allegedly independent “professional“: a Mr. G C Knight, of 64 Cashel Street, Christchurch.

Gmail-GarryKnight2MeGary’s reply was prompt, and I was desperate, so I ignored his lecturing about my having ever dared to use the official lawyer compliant disservice. Instead I wrote a perfectly nice request to proceed . However this allegedly independent “professional” simply never replied again to any communications: When I phoned him all I ever got, was his automated message service. I left polite request, asking him to ring me back,  but like all the other “professionals” Mr Knight simply didn’t even show the common decency to let me know he would not be handling my case, so that I might find someone who would.

Eventually I went to his home.
I rang the door bell.
Nobody came, but I could tell someone was in.
I drove off, then returned on foot and rang again.
This time I was hiding behind the door frame, and he opened the door.
I just asked him to return my documents so I would not have to print them all out again for this other guy I had found... more about that one coming soon.

To Mr. Knight’s point 7, I state that my justification for using the Law Society’s “complaint service” was vindicated in full by the evidence of collusion, the evidence of out-right lies, and misdirection, and the fact I had not been informed of any of it, until the Law Society supplied this evidence. However, regardless if I were wrong, or right about the breach of professional etiquette perpetrated by Simon Stammer-Smith, my official request for Cruickshank-Pryde client complaint’s procedure had been ignored. Thus I was entitled to ask for this “independent” investigation. It is inexcusable that such should then be abused as a pretext to deny my all further professional legal services.

For the rest, one must question whether estate and inheritance law, in New Zealand really has degenerated into a petty exercise of splitting hairs about the definition of “trustees”, and whether such do, or don’t, have the right to act as executors. It seems to me that intention of the deceased should be taken into account, but I’ll get back to the underhand collusion and corruption by senior high-court registrar Mr. John Earles at a later date… while we take a short break looking at farcical extortion racket being conducted by Marlborough District Council… once again manipulating abusing our legal system.

A disgrace to our “democracy” ?

Dear Wellington High Court.
With reference to CIV 2013-485-6986

In this matter my legitimate interests as nominated beneficiary, and trustee of my late mother’s estate, have been bypassed. There also appears to have been a disregard for the wishes, and intentions she expressed in her last Will. Adding insult to injury, an intrusive campaign of defamation has targeted my personal life too.

Sadly I appear to have been completely blocked from obtaining professional legal representation, simply because I complained about my brother’s lawyer friend: His law firm has in my view acted in conflict of interest. Consequently I wish to present a case myself.

I am fully aware you cannot give legal advice, but your senior registrar, John Earles did give advice to the law firm that my siblings engaged. Most of what went on, has been without my knowledge at the time. Consequently I request to make an appointment to discuss in person with your people what application I can make for reparation with respect to this probate.

In order for me to ever have access to professional legal services in the future, I fear I must also establish that my complaint to the Law Society was not unreasonable. To this end I further wish to discuss filing for proceedings against the law firm that acted in conflict of interest.

It is likely that I will be requesting to have my evidence affidavited while I am there. It is not my fault I don’t know anything about the law, or about your procedures, but I do know wrong from right: What has transpired here has been wrong in every way.

Please can you let me know when would be suitable time, and who I can see about this. Keeping in mind that I must organize my travel between Christchurch and Wellington.

Yours faithfully,
Ms. F. A. Perduta

 The official reply, as usual a flippant dismissal:

Jane-Penney-GmailFev-2015  they twist and squirm to avoid it coming to court.

Does anyone know the procedures to initite legal action against a law firm?

If so, contact me via the e-mail shown in the pdf.

Thanks in advance,


p.s. If you would like to join me in asking “our” government for investigation of corrupt underhand dealings in our justice system… please sign my petition to our minister of justice.

Preston Russel Lawyer throws a tantrum.

Preston-Russel-Tantrum Dear Mr. Young,

Regarding your letter of 22nd December.

@4 I do not know what “communication”, you believe my “brother” Marc, attended to, but on 6th of February, again on the 7th of February and the 8th of February 2014, and IFDK how many other times … I told him I would *not* be accepting him, nor Robin as executors. I have given as reason their blatant dishonesty in dealing with our mother’s asset, and I have both offered and provided evidence for this elsewhere. It includes their own admission to having done so.

@5 The application for letters of administration that I was aware of, was to appoint myself and Marc as executors. This would have been in accordance with the terms of our mother’s last Will. It was being dealt with by Mr. Phil McDonald of Cruickshank-Pryde, and I had my signatures all witnessed and legally affidavited as Mr. McDonald had asked me to.

Then Mr. Earles, registrar of the high court, enquired why consent had not been sought from all the beneficiaries. In my opinion he should have asked, why they refused to give it, because consent had been sought, but nobody to date has bothered to tell me what their problem was.

My other “brother”, Robin, apparently issued a caveat. Robin is one of the two who, by his own admission, and on his own authority sequestrated substantial assets of our mothers without her knowledge, or consent in 2001. His pretext at the time was that she was not mentally competent due to her Alzheimer condition and that he was going to administrate it on her behalf. I have to date seen no accountability for his “administration”. In any case, I was not told what said caveat was about, but I was told it meant a court case would be necessary.

While there were some other deficiencies to be sorted, I was not asked, and I did not agree for McDonald to uplift our application, rather than address the points that Earles had raised.

I also still believe it would have been more appropriate to apply for probate than for letters of administration, because Earles claim that appointing trustees of the estate rather than executors renders the will invalid, is highly debateable. I have since learned that Mr. Earles provided plenty unilateral advice to previous legal experts who were refusing to inform me of what was going on, but he didn’t show the common decency to reply when I asked why said trustees should not have power to also act as the executors of mum’s estate. It’s actually rather pointless appointing trustees for the estate of the deceased, if they do not have such authority, so it’s just complete bull shit, isn’t it?!

@6 I have recieved no copy of an application for a letter of administration from Marc, or from Robin. Had I recieved one, I would not have given consent for the reason I already told you: Their demonstrable dishonesty and subterfuge in dealing with mum’s assets.

@7 In light of that, and the proceeding history, my e-mail to your firm is entirely correct and there is a lot more to say about it too. I will be requiring compensation.

I would like to make you aware that I have been the target of over a decade of extensive slander and defamation.
My son and I endured multiple intrusive investigations and harassment, due to cowardly anonymous false accusations of crimes, such as pedophila and rape.

Evidence now comes to light that at least some of this was at the behest of my siblings in furtive collusion with their previous “lawyer”, a Mr Stammer-Smith, and other parties.

Further more I remind Preston Russel “lawyers” that there are still reason for observing due legal process in this country. I am looking forward to learning exactly on what authority Mr. Earles suddenly qualifies to secretly rubber stamp the alleged application, without ensuring said process is observed. I fully intend to publish what I find.

On grounds of the reality of this case, your petulent demand for my apology & retractions, as well as your threats of “action” are simply laughable. Now kindly instruct Mr. Mawhinney to provide the information I requested: What application was submitted and what permission was granted, and to whom.

Truly disgusted,
Ms. F. A. Perduta

Professionally Negligent: Preston Russel Law

Communicating with the latest legal professional who is helping my siblings defraud mum’s estate.

It looks like even though I am nominated beneficiary, and appointed trustee of mum’s estate, somehow this “lawyer” tricked the high court into appointing as executors the two siblings who (by their own admission) took all mums money… without anyone even telling me!


Well Mr Mawahinney, I’ll e-mail the pdf to you, post the image in public on the internet and I’ll print it out and send it to you too. BTW I notice that you have a history of incompetence and professional negligence, and I’m going to really enjoy taking a dissolute scum bag like you down.

Dale Lester, Barrister

Dale-Lester-Canterbury-ChambersDale Lester is a legal professional who gave me some advice back in 2011. Earlier this  year it looked like my sibling’s “estate” lawyer was going to get executors appointed, at long last, so I contacted him for advice once more.
Well I did not hear back for a couple of weeks, so late one evening I phoned his number just to see if it still existed. To my surprise he answered. I asked him if he received my e-mail and he confirmed that he had, but did not have time to “go thru it all” yet. He said he would get back to me as soon as he had.

BarristerHighlightedI never heard from him again and he did not answer any other attempts to contact him. So I have a question for you too Mr. “barrister”:

How I am supposed to inquire with financial institutions, if the Will is dismissed on petty technicalities, then my siblings block my appointment as an executor for undisclosed reasons, and somehow secretly get the “high court” to put them in charge uncontested?

This stinks to high heaven of dirty politics!
Is that how New Zealand law works?
Now why would this so called “professional” not be responding?

Would it not have been professional courtesy to at least let me know that you were not going to accept me as a client again, and why not, Dale Lester?

Question Time: Who *do* they answer to?

LinkedInDear Anabelle J,

Why were you as a “Principle Advisor at New Zealand Ministry of Justice” checking my LinkedIn profile last year? What were you looking for, what did you find, on whose behalf and what was your conclusion? Am I not allowed to know what the accusations are and are you going to clear my name when you find no evidence?

Why am I unable to get a straight answer from anyone in the New Zealand legal system? False accusations, furtive court hearings, uncommunicative legal professionals, government departments covering each other’s back, secrecy, lies… deception…

Is this the new face of “justice” in New Zealand?

You leave me no choice but to ask my questions in public. See there is a public comments section for their convenience.

I have done nothing wrong, but to ask for my equal legal rights.

Does their sinister silence testify to their guilty conscience?
