Many have asked me where I get all my legal understanding from. Well, the truth is that I used to get in a lot of trouble when I was a kid, but my best experience would come at the age of twenty two, but from an attorney named Gregory M. Alonzo. Gregory M. Alonzo had represented me in a fight against the Department of Motor Vehicles here in California, in which he taught me not only the legal language of the court, but also how the court thinks about things. You see, I had received a D.U.I charge, but because I was in an accident and called the police. I was a pretty stupid twenty two year old (lol). Nevertheless, we had a few wins and losses together, in which I am one of the rare people you will ever meet that did not lose his driver’s license, but it was because of the legal skills that of the amazing Gregory M. Alonzo. He was really good in court, but he was not used to the DMV hearings irregular rules, which is because they are their own little kingdom. This is why I figured out that having an attorney was actually hurting me with the DMV hearings, even though it was helping me in court. Therefore, I knew that I would get away with much more with the DMV, if I represented myself, but because the DMV judges tend to hold the attorneys at a much higher standard. You see, Alonzo was not able to step out of the box in a way that I could representing myself, but because I would be allowed to speak both legally and emotionally to DMV hearing judge. I also figured out that they would actually listen to my bullshit for long periods of time, while allowing me to ramble on and on in my answers, but would not allow me that time if I had an attorney. It was funny too, because I remember watching the DMV attorney’s face, as he sat across from me at the hearing table, but with his face rested on his hand from boredom, while I answered his dumb question. By the time I finished answering the DMV attorney’s question that was meant to bust me (15 min later), I could not even remember what the question was. This is why I asked him “Could you please state the question again counselor, because I forgot what your question was.” This is when the DMV attorney sat straight up in his chair from falling asleep, but just to say “I actually forget too! I withdraw the question!” Success! The whole court room busted out laughing at this point, me included, because I had sent the message that I could control the courtroom with every question he asked me, but without giving him what he wants. Part of that is because he could not trick me, because I understood what he wanted, but even before he asked me the question. Often attorneys like the element of surprise with the witness, but he had clearly underestimated me that day. Therefore, he rested his case with no further questions, but because he was losing ground the more I talked. Needless to say, I won that day!
This is why I am even still called in as professional testimony by attorneys today in my industry. Basically, I am fast on my feet, in which I can answer the question in a way that actually hurts the attorney’s case, who was dumb enough to ask me the question in the first place. This is why I am also able to usually out dance people like Stuttering Staurt, who in my opinion, is a very average attorney at best. Trust me, in my time, I have seen both the worst and the best, so I do not say that without some kind of measure of experience. That is why I feel that Stuttering Staurt might have had to cheat, just to get my first case dismissed, but by not telling me personally of when the court date was. Otherwise, I am confident that I could have probably handed him his ass in court, if I was afforded the opportunity. For example, I might already know what Stuart Price’s arguments are going to be here. He is going to argue that I am trying to use the blog to extort money from the potentially criminal, irregular, illegal and fraudulent Bank of Abusing America, but have a hard time explaining why I did not ask for money the entire time I was representing myself. He might even argue that I work for Brookstone, but he simple fact is that Brookstone works for me, and I can prove it. Then he might argue that I am crazy, in which that is exactly what I want him to argue (wink).
At any rate, it was my observation and admiration of attorney Gregory M. Alonzo that had taught me all my legal sense. He was not only one of the smartest attorneys that I have ever met, but he was also one of the most ethical I have ever met too. I remember his words when I was twenty two, in which he said “John, I can take your money if you want, but I do not suggest this route, because it is dangerous to the outcome of your future.” He explained that the DA was using a law that was not meant for me, but I wanted to keep fighting, because I actually thought I was “completely” innocent. That is why in court I stood up and said “Not guilty,” but when Alonzo had told me to plead no contest. I remember Alonzo jumping up really fast out of his chair, but just to say to the judge “He is very young. Can I please have a minute with my client outside the courtroom?” Once outside, I remember his exact words to me. He said “You are about to make the worst mistake of your life right now.” I said “But I am not guilty!” He looked at me with sad eyes “Oh John, did you really think you were not guilty? We found legal loop holes buddy. You are guilty.” This is when he told me “John, I can take your money if you want and fight it. You might even win. However, if you lose…………you go to jail. Have you seen what they do to good looking kids like you in jail?”
You see, the DA had offered me a deal, but I refused to take it because I thought I was innocent, but now Alonzo was telling me that I was guilty. He felt that I was ready to go plead “no contest” after this talk. Therefore, he had taken me back into the court before the judge again. The judge said to me again “How do you plead Mr. Wright.” I said “Not guilty!” Alonzo flew up out of his chair faster than the first time, but looked at me with eyes that could have killed. This time Alonzo begged the judge to please put off the pleading for a month, while reminding the judge that I was very young again. Fortunately, the judge granted his request. However, in that month I had to practice saying “No contest” over and over again.
One month later, I stood in the court again, but this time shouted out “No contest!” the minute I walked in. However, the judge said “Not yet!” I said it again “No contest!” In fact, I just continued to say it wherever he paused in talking, but he would always answer “Not yet!”
Finally, he waived his hands at me, but towards himself, in which I yelled out one more time “No contest!”
The whole court room broke out into applause:
No joke! They were actually all clapping, including the court reporter!
I think if I remember correctly, my consequence was that I had to pull weeds up at the sheriff shooting range for one day. I remember all the other people could not believe that I was able to keep my license, but that I also only received ONE DAY of community service. I owed this all to attorney Gregory M. Alonzo. Nevetheless, I remember the buss driving us up to the shooting range, but thinking to myself “That is just great Alonzo! I got only one day, but they are going to use me for fricken target practice! Great deal!” This is why I think that I have never enjoyed pulling weeds so much in my life, but only because I was glad they were not shooting me as a consequence.
With that being said, I am happy to report to all of you that I never got in trouble ever again after that. However, thank God that Mr. Gregory M. Alonzo saved my life that day. This is because he could have very easily given me the impression that I was going to win, but just to continue taking my money. Gregory M. Alonzo instead made the ethical and moral choice to not let that happen, but not only because he is a good attorney, but because he is a good man!
I have often wondered if I would ever get the chance to thank this man for saving my life when I young, because I am not so sure that my life would have turned out the way it did, if I had to go to jail that day. At any rate, I need not wonder anymore if I ever get to thank him anymore. This is because I retrieved an envelope that was in my mailbox the other day, which was for a person that used to live here. The envelope had a return address on it that stated : “Law Offices Of Gregory M. Alonzo.”
I called Mr. Alonzo immediately, in which I was delighted to hear his voice on the other end pick up right away. It seems that I was finally able to thank him for what he did for me, but nearly twenty years later. You see, there has been times in my life that I have prayed for Mr. Alonzo, but because I will never forget what he did for me. This is because I felt that attorney Gregory M. Alonzo was not just a good attorney, but a good human being.
Therefore, this is why I would like to thank Gregory M. Alonzo in another way today.
My name is John Wright, and I highly suggest that you use Gregory M. Alonzo, if you are needing representation for a DUI; domestic violence, all narcotics/drug cases, theft crimes, suspended license and others. He is clearly a superior attorney, but not only because he is extra smart, but because he is a good man with a good heart. He cares about his clients!
Hey! Bank of Destroying America might want to use him for any criminal defense they might have! At least he does not stu-stu-stutter! (Wink)
