1st Claim Need US based Lawyer to read my case and try to pitch the sale of all my inventions to the US through the White House and anyone else you think might be interested. I have a case pending in the 3rd Circuit Court in Detroit, Mi., might need a request for settlement or private mediation. If you want to sell the inventions to the US or any others that may be interested that would be great but I'm giving them first rights to buy the inventions. They are worth at least a Quadrillion. I want to see about selling to the Presidency first and foremost then if denied to any interested parties purchasing my inventions for no less than 7 Billion. I also have a claim I want to arbitrate or mediate and see if their insurance company will pay out before suit and to get recovery of money. 2nd Claim I went in for a hair transplant and woke to see the doctor sawing through my back of my head and extracting out some type of brain matter. The pain was immense and I couldn't even speak or move, the pain was excruciating and unbelievable. The after effects from the shock and fright and terror are horrible, the trust, security and safety feels absolutely absent and of the utmost fright, shock, terrorization and traumatizing. My ptsd, bipolar, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, fatigue and subsequent adverse reaction and side effects are completely at their peak and totally to the point now, in the future and I constantly feel like what’s next after mutilating my mental, physical, emotional and behavioral stability and intestinal fortitude. I have felt this grotesque negligence and wanton and reckless malpractice, after shocks, and the feeling of the future being unknown and my health, well being and longevity feel worsening by the day since back in the doctors office. There were no stitches, no suture or skin scalpal marks, just a line from the sawing from one side of my head to the other. I have pictures. 3rd Claim Lastly my father stole my settlement from a broken nose when someone picked a fight with me. I had my father put it into Tyco because there were no major toy producers and stores, only corner shops. I saw the people were expanding at huge amounts so I told my father the most guaranteed money maker and with gigantic returns when I put the money in Tyco as this was one of the heights of birth and increased rearing of children and which necessitated the greatest amount and need for toys and such. This was when there were larger businesses beginning to open and chains were coming into the marketplace. Shortly after my investment, Toys R Us came out, K and B toys and Children's Palace followed suit. Just from rumor, word around town, and various indiscriminate sources I was able to be told he has minimally 350 Billion Dollars saved from the doubling of the stock in Tyco doubling over and over, splitting and reinvesting and doubling and which I kept telling my father to keep it in Tyco and let it ride until I was forced to turn over my money and stocks to my father's through threat by his attorney, because my dad wanted to put the money elsewhere and have no more traces of it by using theft and conversion to take over oversight of the money. I didn't have an attorney, couldn't afford one and signing the rights over was all I could do or face court and homelessness and being shunned, and absconded and left for dead by my family, relatives and friends. There have been a few attempts on my life so they could keep the money and get to spend it freely and spuriously without anyone accusing them or challenging my rights to all the money. I have the right winning cases hands down so tell me what you can do and if I can please give 10% as an agency fee I want you to fight for these claims? Let me know asap. This is a huge deal and the most probability to win if you try to settle, mediate, arbitrate, negotiate and take over the control of my 3 claims. Let me know what you decide, please help and if you want I have almost 3 Terabites of inventions, court documents, proofs and factual evidence and which makes these cases unbeatable and cannot been proven contrary, contested or any way differently. Let me know asap and please help. Fight for the money and the most of it because that's the premise and main duty and schema for the use and purpose of an attorney, which is how much more an attorney can get for himself and the parties he's helping. This is irreparable trauma and injury, my disorders will never go away but can only be treated and can get worse and worse at any second believe me it feels like it. Don't turn down this opportunity you and everyone doesn’t want to live paycheck to paycheck for 30 years. This is the last cases you'll ever need it’s all or nothing.
