FLORIDA BAR COMPLAINT against Attorney Mark Lowry

COURT ACTION against Attorney Mark Lowry

Lawyer in Palm Beach County Florida

courtesy Lowry legal



Attorney Mark Lowry 
500 E Broward Blvd  Suite 1710 
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33394
(954) 445 4132  
Re: Full refund of money  $2,500 

I was instructed by the Florida Bar to contact Attorney Mark Lowry to resolve a dispute.  He has been contacted. In no uncertain terms, I believe that Attorney Mark Lowry should have his bar license revoked for his abhorrent behavior and, in my opinion, criminal behavior (theft). I believe $2,500 was stolen from me and have filed a civil action against Mark Lowry.

Complaint against Attorney Mark Lowry of Palm Beach County Florida

INTRODUCTION: This complaint documents the lies, manipulation, fraud, and theft perpetrated by Attorney Mark Lowry in Palm Beach County, Florida. his complaint is not simply targeted so I receive my money back ($2,500)… but carries the broader intent to see that others are not stolen from by the lawyer named Mark Lowry.  As such, if Attorney Mark Lowry does not provide both a prompt and full restitution to me (he has not), I will report his behavior to the Florida Bar, ask for his disbarment, and will provide world-wide attention to anyone searching for “Mark Lowry” as they will find my blog (WB Truth) occupying a top result on any google search bearing his name. 

How "Attorney Mark Lowry" appears on a Google search:

My track record on my blog is perfect. I have had threats of law suits but nothing has come forth as accusers have always backed down. Even corrupt people know that the truth always wins regarding slander accusations. Mark Lowry has threatened to sue me for defamation. To this I will reply:

1)      As I did when I was accused of lying by the Wilkes-Barre (Pa) police, I will protect my name by taking a polygraph test on the important facts.  This silenced my accusers very quickly and gave me instant and full credibility. I have asked Attorney Mark Lowry to take a polygraph test on the issues on the same facts that I am willing to test on. He has not accepted my challenge.

2)      All activities and actions are fair game for my blog. If I take a polygraph test the results will be posted making Lowry look more incompetent and “integrity challenged" than he already is. Further threats of his will also be posted.

Two adages I live by:
(A)   The best disinfectant to corrupt behavior is the light.
(B)   Evil wins when good people choose to do nothing.

ACTS OF BAD FAITH AND/OR CORRUPT ACTIVITY AND/OR GROSS NEGLIGENCE

1)      The “chicken scratch” receipt (Exhibit A) is illegible, unsigned, and not legitimate. The only correct piece to it is that it does indicated $2,500 was paid. It was written on the back of a business card.
2)      Attorney Mark Lowry said he would follow up with a typed contract (formal retainer agreement) for me to sign (of normal legal standards). HE NEVER PRODUCED SUCH A CONTRACT.
3)      Attorney Mark Lowry never told me (oral or in writing) what his hourly rate was.
4)      Attorney Mark Lowry never provided ANY documentation regarding any work performed. He simply stole the money from me. The standard to provide a contract is a “reasonable time.” Obviously a “reasonable time” indicates a period BEFORE all the money is gone. Attorney Mark Lowry NEVER provided a retainer agreement yet literally whipped me clean for $2500.
5)      Attorney Mark Lowry expressed to me that by paying cash he could move more quickly in processing my case. I spoke to him approximately 11 days after I gave him $2,500. He still had not performed any concrete actions on my case. (BTW... The frivolous charges have since been dropped through another attorney.
6)      A reasonable assumption that I made (and I believe anyone would make) was that Attorney Mark Lowry was acting in bad faith.
7)      Attorney Mark Lowry never showed me ANY evidence that he (as he said he would both orally and in writing) was actively pursuing my best interest and working as my advocate. I fully believe he was acting in bad faith knowing a bigger “pay day” awaited him if he dragged his feet. 
8)      Mark Lowry provided an explanation to me in writing that the Florida Bar would not entertain a complaint about fees. I called the Florida Bar who specifically told me to file a complaint if Attorney Mark Lowry refused to return my money.
9)      Mark Lowry used up the entire retainer with:
           A) No formal and/or professional typed contract
           B) No statement of hourly fees
           C) No presentation of actual work having been done. 



THREATS MADE BY MARK LOWRY AGAINST ME:
Defamation suit:  Lowry wrote in an E Mail: “Lastly re your threat of making statements about me. Please be advised that you have hired me to represent you and by my notice of appearance and calls with the prosecutor I am doing just that. (This is a lie… at this point he made no calls to the prosecutor). The fact that you now want a different attorney is not grounds for a refund (Please note that Attorney mark Lowry assumes the retainer is 100 per cent his to keep without a contract or work done in the case). Therefore, please be advised that if you write, print, or state anything in a false light or otherwise defamatory manner I will bring action for defamation in Palm Beach County Circuit Court and will prevail, as I know I have done nothing but uphold the Florida Bar rules and regulations.”
Generalized threat:  (“It will not end well for you”) Lowry wrote in an E Mail:  “Mark (Robbins)  it really doesn't have to be this way, but I am warning you that if you persist in either threatening me or follow through with these threats I will not hesitate to use my knowledge and experience to prevail. Please be smart and let this lie, it will not end well for you Mark. (My note: Is it really “smart” to not file a complaint? Really?)
CONFLICTS OF INTEREST

What you need to know: In trying to help Lowry’s on again/ off again girlfriend last summer… I unwittingly performed actions that caused severe hostility from the girlfriend. I initially asked Mark Lowry to help with a case simply because (very literally) he was the only defense attorney I knew in Palm Beach County. 

The girlfriend  played the "single mom sympathy card" on me and was able to extract $400 from me. Despite my generous offer to her things soured quckly as I tried to help. What is important here is that a conflict of interest arises given the girlfriend's resentment against me coinciding with her relationship with Mark Lowry (which he described as having been sexual). Put another way, it is logical to assume that the girlfriend would have a “rooting interest” against me which would understandably affect how Lowry provides for my interests. 

Attorney Mark Lowry said to me in E mails:
1)      He has not been dating this person.
2)      Attorney Mark Lowry claimed he spoke very briefly about the girlfriend with me. In reality we spoke for at least 75 minutes about her.

Contradicting facts
1)      Mark Lowry told me (the night I gave him $2500) that he was still "seeing" his girlfriend (10/31/2017).
2)      Attorney Mark Lowry told me himself that he was having a sexual relationship with the girlfriend while she was still married and was raising to very young children.
3)      This Fall they walked by me together into her apartment building with bottles of beer in a six pack.
4)      In the last month, the girlfriend revealed to me that Attorney Lowry discussed key details of my case with the girlfriend. This is a definite "no no."
5)      The girlfriend revealed to me that Lowry would pick up the girlfriend in the front of Broadstone Apartments (out of my sight). The girlfriend said the reason for this pick up spot was so that I would not see them together. Red flags are raised here.
6)      In July of 2016 Mark Lowry and I talked for more about 75 minutes regarding the girlfriend providing details such as:
-          Fights they had
-          Sex they had (while she married with children)
-          Personal descriptions
-          Lowry paying medical bills for girlfriend’s broken nose
-          The jerk that her “ex” was
-          Spending time with girlfriend’s family 
-          How she had threatened to press "battery" charges against Lowry when he slammed his door on her arm.

OF IMPORTANCE… he told me that the girlfriend “trashed me” after the girlfriend and I had our disagreement last July and Lowry seemed genuinely hurt that the girlfriend begged me for money and gave me attention she did. This gives cause for the “conflict of interest” that I brought up to Attorney Mark Lowry. He instead took ALL my money with absolutely NO DOCUMENTATION ever of ANY work done to this day.

FURTHER EVIDENCE of a conflist occurred when I left a polite note with the girlfriend asking her to consider paying me back the money I gave her. The reason for my request was stated as current medical expenses for my son. Rather than simply giving me a "yes" or a "no"...  she called the apartment security and contacted the apartment manager (who did nothing). Her reaction shows she still holds antipathy for me.

EXHIBITS      Please see the following exhibits below:
Exhibit A: The farcical, illegible, and illegitimate receipt that Lowry wrote up with runny blue ink on the back of a business card.
Exhibit B: The front of the business card. 
Exhibit C: My withdrawal of $3,000 so that I could pay Mark Lowry with cash
Exhibit D: The actual currency (bills) totaling $2,500 which I paid to Mark Lowery as he pulled up to my apartment complex at Broadstone in Boca Raton.



Exhibit A  This is what Mark Lowry calls a “contract”



Exhibit B  Front of business card


Exhibit C   Withdrawal taken out to give Mark Lowry $2500 in cash he requested.


Exhibit D   The exact bills given to Mark Lowry of $2,500


WHY I HAVE 5 MILLION VIEWS / WHY I (MARK ROBBINS) AM BELIEVED

I, Mark Robbins, have over 5 million views on this blog (WB TRUTH) because it has 
been built on a bedrock of integrity. 

                                                                        
             2017 photo

This began when I first exposed "CARS FOR CASH" (LAG Towing; Leo Glodzik). I was called a liar by the Wilkes-Barre (Pa) police and was lied about by the (then) Chief of Police Gerard Dessoye at A Wilkes-Barre (Pa) Council meeting. I vowed to never be humiliated like this again. The action I took was to take a polygraph test regarding the facts of my encounter with the WB police. See below. 

                                                                 

WB TRUTH is read voraciously because (in the words of C.S. Lewis), not only does it have a "ring of truth," but in fact it represents the truth. I am told that most of the Luzerne County (Pa) court house reads my posts by 9 AM. Countless reporters and public officials count on me for exposing corruption or other writing on other news I deem important. Not only is their a great quantity of readers, but qualitatively the consistent readers are far more likely to hold positions of power within Luzerne County.

MY PLEDGE: A POLYGRAPH CHALLENGE   If anyone legitimately claims my posts to be false or defamatory, I will take a polygraph test regarding the pertinent facts. I will offer such person to do the same as well. In this the truth will be uncovered. No one has yet had the courage (nor basis in fact) to take me up on my "polygraph challenge."

My blog has become not only reports the news... it now moves the news. What do I mean by this? If your name is mentioned in one of my posts, based on the volume of WB Truth's views, you will likely show up in one of the top spots in a google search of your name. This can obviously work favorably for a person who  is commended, or work against a person who is maligned. If you don't like how you are portrayed - then change your behavior. It is that simple. My grandfather (Donald Scott Mills) once said, "Never do anything that you would want to have printed on the cover of the newspaper." Well... my blog represents the proverbial "cover of the newspaper."

WB TRUTH HAS BECOME A "GOOGLE SEARCH" POWERHOUSE. This has truly been earned by painstaking work and attention to the truth.


Here is an example. If you google "Lisa Cuenca," my apartment manager, my blog shows up in the third spot after I wrote a positive recommendation for her.

"KIDS FOR CASH" MAYOR TONY GORGE & CNN VIDEO HEARD AROUND THE WORLD

See Tony George's "Kids for Cash" endorsement further down. First take a look at the broad facts of "Kids for Cash" to realize the huge scope of this horrific bribery scheme.

CNN VIDEO HEARD AROUND THE WORLD

Click HERE FOR CNN "KIDS FOR CASH" VIDEO 


Judge Mark Civiarella (17 yrs in prison) for taking $1 Million and "stuffing" juvenile center with kids for pal Rob Mericle
Sandy Fonzo behind Judge Mark Civiarella. Her son committed suicide after illicit/unethical jail sentence by Civiarella.

Judge Michael Conahan (8 yrs in prison) for taking $1 Million and "stuffing" juvenile center with kids for pal Rob Mericle
Rob Mericle received just one year in prison for bribing judges to "stuff" his juvenile facility illicitly / unethically / dubiously in Luzerne County Pa.
PALM BEACH GARDENS resident (PA Attorney) Michael Powell served 18 months. RECENT NEWS!! (June 2016)   Powell reported to be under federal investigation. See article HERE

W-B Mayor Tony George supported "Kids for Cash" Judge (Civiarella; serving 17 years). See letter to editor below. After the prison sentences were administered, Tony George proved to be one of the most stubborn and thick headed (and just plain stupid ) men alive. After all the of the irrefutable evidence was in regarding "Kids for Cash," Tony George would not relent on his apparent "man crush" of the nefarious Civiarella. In fact Tony George "double downed" on his position and continued his support of disgraced Civiarella at the W-B Mayoral candidate debate. 
Transcript (below) of the above letter written to Wilkes-Barre Citizens Voice Newspaper in 2008:

Editor:   We feel it is our responsibility to respond to the criticism that Judge Mark Civiarella has received the last few weeks concerning juvenile justice.

We can say from personal experience in Judge Civiarella's court room that he was always fair and firm with all students. 

His concern for safe schools was always a top concern for him. 

An example of his concern for safe schools is the fact that every year for the past 10 years, Judge Civiarella took the time from his busy schedule to speak to all students at Wilkes-Barre Area Vocational Technical School. 

He spoke to the students regarding the purpose of attending school and the consequences that result if the safety and welfare of any student or staff member was in jeopardy. 

Also, in the past several years, Civiarella participated in a school play in which he re-enacted a court room trial with the students acting as lawyers as well as victims of school violence.

His dedication of working with our students created a bond of trust and confidence with him, the students, and the staff. Students who have had personal experience with Judge Civiarella have expressed gratitude and thanks for his involvement in their lives. His concern for students after adjudication is what makes him so special. He has made a tremendous difference in the educational process of our school. 

In closing, Judge Civiarella will always be a part of Wilkes-Barre Area Vocational Technical School and we are thankful for all the years of quality and dedicated service he has given to our school and to our community.

Guest blogger Mike Frank Burnside: Call your Congress member now!

Guest Blogger   Mike Frank Burnside

My note: My eyes tend to fog over when insurance was brought up. But the message below from Mike Frank Burnside of Harvey's Lake (PA) caught my attention. 

I am privileged to not be poor. Yet I am not part of the mega wealthy. Please consider the ever widening wealth gap in our country... and ask your self "Was the money earned fairly or not?" And "How can wealth itself be used to make easy money."

Consider:
1)  Bribes/Kickbacks  "Kids for Cash" and "Cars for Cash" (LAG Towing and Leighton/ WB Police), Consider... one of the wealthiest men in Luzerne County is/was Leo Glodzik... a tow truck driver now in prison... ran one of biggest auto theft rings in Pa history.
2) Pay for Play... Securing contracts by paying off politicians under the table or via campaign contributions.
3) Selling influence   Clinton Foundation... Trump's kids were recently selling meetings with "dad" for a million bucks per "donor."
4)  Doctors scamming insurance companies / selling scrips for pain meds
5) Drug Dealing / Racketeering / mob activity / threats / extortion / violence / prostitution / bookies / bar owners
6) Judges.  Buying their way into office. Chief Luzerne County Judge Dick Hughes spent $173,000 and hid the fact that state police covered up DUI of Luzerne County DA Salavantis. Your honor? I think not. 
7) Even something as simple as speed traps. Pays attorneys. Job security for lazy cops. Municipal money.

Think hard about how people make their money. Far too much respect is given to the wealthy. When reading the piece below... think of the honest "9 to 5ers" that have no access to "easy money." Nurses for example.

Message below from Mike Frank Burnside: 

When Trump or Paul Ryan say they want to replace the ACA with "Health Savings Accounts" (HSAs), they are also saying they want to replace Obamacare or Medicare or Medicaid with YOU paying for your healthcare. That means YOU pay for chemotherapy... YOU pay for all surgeries and hospitalization... YOU pay for all your family's doctor visits, urgent care, ER visits, and prescription drugs out-of-your-pocket. No longer will our tax dollars help us to pool our resources to share the costs of necessary care. They intend to claw-back the social safety net to pre-New Deal times.


A Health Savings Account is just a tax-free way for you to save up money to pay for your own medical bills. So if you are paying off college loans, or saving for a house down-payment, or simply living paycheck to paycheck, guess what -- a Health Savings Account does you no good, because you have no discretionary funds to deposit into it. And even if you manage to save five grand or ten grand in an HSA, that could all get wiped out in one routine hospital visit for you or a family member. Then you are back to square zero again.


Don't be fooled if they say they're going to "give" you a token amount to "start you off" -- in no way will it replace the kind of coverage you can get now. Even if you can supplement your HSA with affordable health insurance, you will be eating away at money that you should be investing for your retirement or your kids' college tuition. Only the top 3-5% of Americans can save enough for retirement, college AND their own out-of-pocket medical expenses. Therefore, the tax benefits of HSA's only help those people.


The actual purpose for repealing the Affordable Care Act and for drastically changing Social Security and Medicare is to transfer the money currently allocated to them to the very wealthy via more tax cuts for the mega-rich. Millions of us won't be able to afford necessary care so the upper crust will feel even grander.


Please call your Congress member to protest this now. Their plan is to rush this through before most people understand what's going on.
