Dear Jan Pilkington,
Your “investigation”, just like that of the New Zealand Law Society was a farce: You did not even look at the evidence for Simon Stammer-Smith acting in flagrant conflict of interest. There is no evidence you investigated anything at all.
It is illegal false advertising, for the Law Society to claim they offer a complaints service that uphold standards in the legal profession, when all they have done is a white-wash on flagrant misconduct.
However it is beneath contempt for you, in the ministry of justice at tax payer’s expense, to then endorse that.
It is in the public interest to publicly expose your corruption and collusion… watch this space!

Dear Paula Tesoriero,
Ostensibly, a member of your staff wrote the attached letter.
I state once again: The legal advice that I received was that probate can be granted on Mrs. Scaife’s Will, and that in the even of a difference of opinion the documents should be presented for a court to make a decision.
I discovered that the lawyers of Cruickshank-Pryde sought unilateral advice from the technical adviser to your high court. In his e-mail John Earles, says it is the appointment of trustees rather than executors that mean probate can’t be granted.
However I would like to know why anyone would appoint trustees for an estate if said trustees have no authority to act as executors?
Now by Robin Scaife’s own admission he and Marc took Mrs Scaife’s assets while she had Alzheimer disease, but on her death they claimed it was gifted to them. I have provided you (and many lawyers, and the Law Society, and the LCRO) evidence of this.
How do you expect me to include the original document when you send it back to my siblings who clearly have no intention what-so-ever of respecting the wishes of the deceased: namely for equal distribution of her estate between her children, while taking debts to the estate into account? The Law Society even went so far as to ridicule me for daring to ask for this document some years ago, but I was of understanding that our estate lawyer was not going to use it.
How do you expect me to “get legal advice” when said Law Society (as well as the LCRO) abuse my justifiable complaint about the estate lawyer blatantly, acting in conflict of interest? Thus they deny me all further legal services in this country!
I state once again. I will not be cheated out of my legitimate inheritance without voicing my objection and making the true facts public: In no way will this kind of corrupt legal chicanery ever become acceptable practice.
Ms. F.A. Perduta
