Raftery, Janeczek & Hoelscher, P.C.Jeanne V. Barron attorney for Shiawassee Condo Assoc. In Southfield, MI


There are some good quality lawyers in southeast Michigan, Ezra N. Goldman, Anthony Della Pelle and Jennifer Cordon Thor just to name a few. Jeanne V. Barron (P37138) of Raftery, Janeczek & Hoelscher, P.C. is not one of them.

Plaintiff, Ms. “X” on 02/12/08 incurred a slip and fall accident on the Shiawassee Condominium Association property at 7:10am. This was one year exactly after the 02/12/07 correspondence (submitted by Attorney Ezra N. Goldman and days after the 01/21/08 correspondence submitted by Attorney Jennifer Cordon Thor.

Defendant, Shiawassee Condominium Association and its maintenance staff of two Robert (Bob) Piech and Thomas Blanding were defendants in the previous litigation [protected]-NZ (public record information). The two were sued by same plaintiff (Case No. GC 09 1653) in the Michigan 46th District Court. The maintenance staff of two, Robert Bob Piech and Thomas Blanding appeared on defendant’s preliminary lay and expert witness list offered by you their attorney Jeanne Barron. None of the board members were listed ONLY Piech and Blanding who are somewhat illiterate, only maintenance and were sued by this same plaintiff in a previous litigation, [protected]-NZ in the Oakland County Circuit Court. She (Barron) knew this.

Defendant, Shiawassee Condominium Association (Southfield, MI) through its attorney, Jeanne Barron denied that it breached any of its duties and further denies that it was negligent but states it was guided by, and strictly observed all of its legal duties and obligations imposed by operation of law, the condominium bylaws and otherwise, in that all of the actions of its agents, servants, and/or employees were careful, proper, prudent and lawful. . . . it took proper action to administer and enforce its master deeds and bylaws but a request for snow maintenance was requested 12/17/2007. The request was refused 12/24/2007 “these items are co-owner responsibility the association will take no action on them clear snow. None [snow] available at this time”. How about that “None [snow] available at this time”. Defendant, Shiawassee Condominium Association on 12/24/2007 “in writing” refused to honor its legal obligation stated in the condominium documents, Article V, Section 5 and the Michigan law statue MCL 559.153. Defendant (Shiawassee) on 12/24/2007 refused to honor its fiduciary responsibility that it [defendant] accepts in its Spring 2005 newsletter. While defendant (Shiawassee Condominium Association) is not surer of safety, it has a duty to exercise DUE CARE, Roberts v Stevens Enterprise, Inc. (1999) WL [protected]. Defendant (Shiawassee) on 12/24/2007 “in writing” refused to exercise DUE CARE.

Wait! Wait! The best is yet to come. Barron, in her introduction (01/07/10 Summary Disposition, page 2) says (plaintiff) was not unfamiliar to defendant”. Defendant and Barron also were not unfamiliar to plaintiff; all played part in a previous litigation, Case No. [protected]-NZ. She knew this.

The January 07, 2010 Summary Disposition, page 2 according to Jeanne Barron says “ plaintiff Ms. “X” alleges that, on September 18, 2008, she slipped and fell on accumulated ice on a sidewalk in the condominium complex. (See Plaintiff’s Complaint, paragraphs 17 and 18)” The summary disposition stated inaccurate information. Plaintiff, Ms. “X” did not slip and fall on accumulated ice on the sidewalk in the condominium complex on September 18, 2008; this is not stated in the complaint, paragraph 17 and 18. How about that!!! A lawyer - Inept, Incompetent and Obtuse.

Defendant, Shiawassee Condominium Association (Southfield, MI) in its (Spring 2009) newsletter states owners must carry condo insurance; this is NOT stated in the bylaws. Defendant (Shiawassee) must carry insurance. This is stated in the bylaws, Article IV. Compliance of this bylaw ruling, Article IV is mandated by Michigan law statue MCL 559.153. Defendant shall (will) keep detailed books/records; this is stated in the bylaws, Article 1, Section 3. Compliance of this bylaw ruling Article 1, Section 3 is mandated by Michigan law statues MCL 559.153 and MCL 559.154 (1). Notification of all meetings shall (will) be forwarded to co-owners by mail. This is a bylaw ruling, Article 1 (f). Compliance of this bylaw ruling, Article 1 (f) is mandated by Michigan law statue MCL 559.153. “The [condominium association] bylaws do not supersede or overcome the law of Michigan”.

Barron now inflamed says this (all above) is harming her reputation. Laugh. Go ahead and laugh. Laugh. Laugh, Laugh. That’s just too bad. Freedom of Speech is protected by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and the Constitution of Michigan 1963, Section 5; Barron perhaps does not know this. Why ever would Raftery, Janeczek & Hoelscher, P.C. (Farmington Hills, MI) employ this attorney Jeanne Barron? Why would any law firm Michigan or elsewhere employ this attorney, Jeanne Barron?

    Case was frivolous she says but harming her reputation. LOL.

    The outcome was frivolous only because Judge William J. Richards in the Michigan 46th District Court is dishonest and not fair. He is personally familiar with her, Jeanne Barron - apparently but she influenced plaintiff’s attorney, James G. Schmier. He Schmier worked for Barron not plaintiff, his client. He, additionally suppressed material facts. She was familiar with Ms. “X” plaintiff via Case no. [protected]-NZ in the Oakland County Circuit Court. Ms “X” plaintiff prevailed in that case involving same defendant as that in Case No. GC 09 1653 in the Michigan 46th District Court. Case No. [protected]-NZ with a signed and sealed Release and Settlement agreement. She, Jeanne Barron signed that agreement. That agreement barred her from expounding on facts and or non-facts that surfaced in case no. [protected]-N via communication of any kind. She could not transport facts and or non-facts from case no [protected]-NZ (Oakland County Circuit Court) into case no. GC 09 1653 in the Michigan 46th District Court. She did.

    Plaintiff has right to speak. This is freedom of speach country. What he/she said should be heard. There are a lot of lawyers out there like Baron, inept, incompetent and obtuse. Attorney Jeanne Baron won the case, apparently but embarrasses herself and that Farmington Hills, MI law firm, Raftery, Janeczek & Hoelscher.

    Instead of bashing an attorney that successfully beat you in a frivilous case, why don't you project your anger into something useful.
    Jeanne Barron is an incredibly intelligent, caring, professional and experienced attorney. She has helped lots and lots of people.
    This Plaintiff has made it her personal agenda to extract revenge by posting nasty things online. She is full of nonsense, although callous and malicious.
