My newly released book entitled, Whistleblower in Paris, is now available in hard copy. Electronic versions will be available in coming weeks. This is a human rights odyssey based on a true story that has promising success. The educational content alone is worth many times the price. It also features the highly unique intrigue of a litigation attorney who took a stand against his profession to expose court corruption. You will not get this extraordinary information elsewhere.
This book was a herculean task after many months of hard work. My experience in the publication process has resulted in valuable insight for your own autobiography or litigation ordeal. I was successful in a federal lawsuit against a book publishing subsidiary in 2006 for its deceptive practices. This is proof that any would-be author is highly vulnerable to predatory firms. I offer a professional service to help you navigate effectively and economically through it all.
My book can be ordered on this site, http://www.leonkoziol.com, by making a contribution of $30 to our cause. That price includes shipping and handling. Your credit/debit/ pay pal purchase will include your address for mailing of an autographed copy. Get your head start now. My personal e-mail for more details is firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to a high volume of communications, I will respond more quickly to direct phone contacts. The book’s back cover summary is provided below.
Among my popular publications are those that shed light on this human rights tragedy known as parental alienation. It is the centerpiece of a nationwide epidemic promoted by greed, lawyer profits and billions of dollars in federal funds under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act. It is a gold mine for service providers, prescription drug companies and conflict predators of astounding variety, an underworld of corruption made possible by a rarely tested declaration that our domestic relations courts are acting in the so-called “best interests” of our children.
This epidemic is escalating by the day because government is failing us in its duty to safeguard our most cherished right of parenting, one that the Supreme Court has repeatedly declared to be the “oldest liberty interest protected by the Constitution,” Troxel v Granville, 530 US 57 (2000). It is failing us most horrifically by refusing to correct parental alienation which has become so silently widespread across America. Instead, more regard is given to illegals, criminals and child traffickers at our borders.
Consequently we must take a closer look at these domestic tribunals. They all seem legitimate with the decorum, perfunctory overtures, and lawyers cloaked in black robes pressing us to believe that our precious offspring are in good hands. As an alienation victim, I tested that blind trust resulting in one of my custody judges being permanently banned from the bench for sexual abuse of his handicapped, five year old niece, In re Bryan Hedges, 20 NY3d 677 (2013). Only last year another of my custody judges resigned for sexual harassment of his female clerks (Michael Hanuszczak).
Indeed, over a twelve year period of retaliation for the conscientious stand I took against my profession, more than 40 trial level jurists were removed or disqualified from my family litigation, a national record by most accounts. I did not ask for this record or so many parenting substitutes since an uncontested divorce was upended by court predators. Since 2004, they orchestrated a blood bath reminiscent of the Roman Coliseum.
After all, have you ever wondered why loving parents are forced to joust over a “custody” award or “visitation” schedule? Are not these terms more appropriate for prisons and funerals? And haven’t such archaic terms “outlived their usefulness” as a veteran judge long ago declared in the case of Webster v Ryan, 729 NYS2d 315 (Fam. Ct. Albany 2001) at fn. 1?
I did not ask for the years of daily persecution that ultimately led to my hospitalization four months ago. I did not ask for this simply to spend more time with my daughters. I did not ask for the alarming information disclosed to me anonymously and otherwise concerning my ex-wife bent on replacing me time and again with her preferred dads.
This hideous alienator, Kelly Hawse-Koziol, brings a face to this epidemic. Indeed she could become its poster parent, exemplifying the absurdity of taking a support and custody battle to an illogical extreme. After all, what did she gain by destroying the career of her children’s dad? She got the attention she craved, pleased the ones anxious to even the score for a lost case, but how did any of it benefit the girls who could have been so much better off today.
In my case, I was never given an out, constantly forced on the defensive to prove myself as the fit parent I always was. For example, through a series of family offense petitions, all thrown out for lack of evidence, and a malicious campaign for failing to give up my parenting rights, Hawse-Koziol (soon to be Hawse-Usherwood) brainwashed my girls into hating their biological father who made their existence possible.
I raised them without incident for the first ten years of their lives, sacrificed immensely to stay with them, provided over a quarter million dollars for their support, and showed them a wonderful time which would be the envy of most children. Yet today they seem content to reward me with silence, avoiding contact even while I was hospitalized during the Christmas holidays. I cannot imagine doing this to my own parents or to my ex if the shoe was on the other foot. It is a modern day evil which our courts are manufacturing daily.
Such is the face of severe parent alienation, and it warrants a federal investigation of human rights violations in addition to the rampant abuses of federal funds. It also warrants criminal prosecutions and jail time for contempt to balance the consequences that have long been applied to child support debtors. I mean, isn’t a parent-child relationship far more deserving of legal protection than money transfers that are so often abused for non-child related activity? Parental alienation also warrants a new form of lawsuit that compensates victims.
Those who join with the alienator should also be held accountable. Again, I did not ask for the reports from concerned observers that my ex-wife was at it again by soliciting a guy named Lou Usherwood to act as the father of my children. Indeed during a high school football game in 2019, her illicit agenda was confirmed when, accompanied by this latest substitute, she threatened me by text for talking to my cheerleader daughter without a proper court order.
This is “insanity on steroids” and it is becoming commonplace. But in my case it is laced with retaliation for the exercise of speech outside the courtroom and constitutional right of parenting free from excessive interference. I have never even been charged with child abuse or found guilty of unfit parenting. Yet convicted felons in prison get better “visitation” orders.
After exchanges with the ex designed to move on from this disaster last year, I took down all negative posts involving her. However, the alienator showed true colors again by continuing with her sick agenda. She is doing this despite all the precious time and advice lost between “daddy and his little girls” that can never be restored. It is an evil I have never seen before, even among some of the worst criminal defendants I have come across. Yet I continue to have no legal recourse against those who made her agenda possible due to judicial immunity.
In my 2017 book, Satan’s Docket, I document how a corrupt family court made all this possible. It is not only uniquely educational but it reveals an epic ordeal deserving of a long overdue documentary.

Is there any shame these days to the widespread misconduct of public officials? Is there any accountability for those who flaunt the law with impunity? We’re not talking about isolated indiscretions, but serious misconduct undetected for years, even decades. Former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, Congressman Anthony Weiner, Wall Street regulator Bernie Madoff, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and ex-California Congressman Duncan Hunter constitute a small list of disgraced officials who brazenly advanced themselves at public expense, a joint hypocrisy of epic proportion.
And now, topping this list, we find Andrew Cuomo engaged in a flurry of news releases to deflect from his growing scandals. From a sudden legalization of recreational marijuana to the relaxation of coronavirus restrictions, the current governor of New York is relying on an electorate that quickly forgets. This long abused practice flies in the face of government misconduct that should be held accountable to avert the lawlessness it incites elsewhere. The public message here is that if you bend the rules, by the time anyone catches up with it, a lavish life has already been fulfilled.
Yes, crime pays, and the message continues to be that the people served are idiots for honoring laws that apply differently to separated classes. Those in power abuse their authority to achieve a higher standard while those who make it all possible are remanded to a life of poverty, incarceration, suicide and meager employment. To maintain the upper class, various programs are announced to make it appear that these lawless politicians truly care about the rest of us struggling to make sense of our reality as a two class society. Any middle existence is an illusion of escalating proportion particularly with the impacts of the current pandemic.
On Constitution Day, 2013, I testified at Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Moreland Commission on Public Corruption, to warn of our current realities. This was yet another window dressing entity designed to fool the public into believing that there will be accountability for a “culture of corruption in Albany.” But the same governor who created this commission with great fanfare acted just as quickly to dissolve it when growing testimony implicated officials close to Cuomo himself. Not to be duped, one of those testimonials came from a federal prosecutor who seized commission files resulting in the convictions of both leaders of the state legislature and a top Cuomo aid.
For my part, as a qualified whistleblower in our third branch of government, I exposed a family court epidemic that was causing vast separations between parents and their children. How ironic and hypocritical it is today that much more attention is being given to criminals and illegals at our southern border. Is this equal justice for our tax paying citizenry or the promotion of corporate profits dependent on cheap labor, drug addictions and false advertising?
In my reports to Congress and Justice Department I explained how Title IV-D funding was creating a biased judiciary rewarded by the size and number of child support orders doled out in our nation’s domestic relations courts. Put another way, federal funding was being incentivized by the number of “custodial parents” needlessly manufactured to incite lucrative conflict in the so-called “best interests” of our children.
In support of a federal investigation, I even cited proof in my own case featuring over 40 trial level jurists removed over a twelve year period in a maliciously protracted divorce that caused irreversible parental alienation. This was anything but a process for advancing the best interests of my two precious daughters. And in the end, like most whistleblowers, I suffered severe retaliation to suppress judicial accountability. Attacked as the messenger of overdue reforms, I was targeted by these same jurists and their ethics agents. By destroying my credibility, the gold mine of service fees and federal money was further preserved.
That targeting was successful largely because the public is further duped to believe that judges are “beyond reproach” as members of that arbitrarily created elite class. Such argument was used by lawyers to attack my motions for removal of biased judges from my support and custody cases in Syracuse, New York. That was before some of them were removed from the family court bench for misconduct that was made public. They include Judge Bryan Hedges permanently banned from judicial office by New York’s high court for sexual misconduct on his handicapped, five year old niece and more recently, Judge Michael Hanuszczak, exposed for sexual harassment of female court clerks.
The growing number of judicial scandals should have all of us very concerned because this is where we expect justice to be dispensed. Examples cited in my reports include Brooklyn Judge Gerald Garson sent to federal prison after being convicted of seeking a bribe in favor of a father in a custody case, and Albany Judge Thomas Spargo for seeking a bribe in favor of a mother in a divorce case against a father-attorney.
Such judicial misconduct is nationwide in scope as demonstrated by the “Kids for Cash” scandal which landed two Pennsylvania judges in prison, and Michigan Judge Wade McCree who impregnated a mother while presiding over her child support case. The victimized father was unable to secure justice or compensation in federal court due to judicial immunity, sending the message that adultery in chambers is a protected judicial act.
Unfortunately my expert reports, lobbying excursions, and peacefully led marches in Washington yielded no reforms. Instead I was rewarded with human rights violations, indefinite suspension of licensing “privileges,” and near death experiences. Such are the consequences for whistleblowers in countries led by ruthless dictators, not one that professes democracy and social Justice. Yet those remain the consequences here in America for a civil rights attorney whose greatest crime was to seek more parenting time with his children and to expose corruption by self-jurists and politicians. My ordeal is now a looming documentary published in a recent book, Satan’s Docket.
This is not a “lone wolf” project but a representative undertaking for a disjointed mass of aggrieved parents from across the country hoping to achieve resurrection from their suffering at the hands of evil beings. It is not the message I was hoping to present on Easter Sunday 2021, but we can either join to achieve a better society or we can continue to surrender to one that is becoming more godless by the day.

Stay tuned for an eye-opening post coming soon on the subject of parental alienation which caused two girls to avoid all contact with their hospitalized dad this past Christmas holiday.
After more than thirty years litigating in federal, state and appellate courts, I gained valuable insights on the widespread corruption occurring to parents, children and families in our nation’s domestic relations courts. As a civil rights trial attorney, I won numerous awards for victims of government abuse, set legal precedent for many of those victims, secured a restraining order on a $30 million high school project right out of law school, and even won a judgment in New York Supreme Court invalidating a billion dollar casino compact on constitutional grounds.
Today, after taking a stand against corruption in divorce and family courts, I am unable to get a simple order giving me access to my daughters despite no finding of unfit parenting or even an accusation of abuse. My court filings are suddenly “rambling, vitriolic or frivolous,” my unblemished professional record over 23 years suddenly unethical. It’s a classic John Grisham story but with no fiction attached, an innocence project awaiting fulfillment, and a potential martyrdom that I never asked for. It remains a vital cause impacting every aspect of modern day life.
Over the years I had occasion to witness or investigate needless deaths and human carnage in divorce and family courts across the country. Thomas Ball went so far as to burn himself alive in front of a family court in Keene County, New Hampshire to protest draconian enforcement practices relating to child protection, yet little media attention was given to this horrific event. Imagine if an African-American mother did the same to protest domestic violence.
I addressed national media at the 2015 funeral of Walter Scott, an unarmed black father fleeing a child support warrant at a traffic stop in South Carolina. He was shot dead five times in the back by a white cop. Among the black lives news reports, the Walter Scott murder continues to get the least attention despite an argument that family courts are now killing for money. Had this horrific event not been captured by a concealed by-stander on his i-phone, no one would have believed the cop setting an object on the “suspect’s” body to make it appear that it was an act of self-defense.
And the list goes on: a deranged mother who dismembered her two year old daughter rather than give her up to a custody order, veterans committing suicide at a rate of 22 per day with no study that tracks the number relating to family court, and the harm to worker productivity and health costs due to these recurring, lucrative court proceedings. Many victims are forced to give up parenting rights to avoid a debtor’s prison for so-called “child support” that lacks accountability. They quietly fade away to a death caused by grief, stress and depression. One such parent, Michael Brancaccio, suffered such an outcome only three months ago.
On tonight’s conference call, one mother expressed sympathy for my ordeal with the question of whether anyone can overcome a family court lobby that is so powerful. The answer lies in our collective resolve in a nationwide crusade for justice such as the Parent March on Washington which I sponsored in 2019. It would include lobbying efforts in Congress for a reform of Title IV-D funding and an investigation by the Justice Department. This will require large scale funding, but there are wealthy victims who can be contacted for this purpose.
As irony would have it, I testified at Governor Cuomo’s Moreland Commission on Public Corruption in 2013 which has relevance to this week’s calls for nursing home accountability. There I exposed family court judges who were fabricating evidence and engaging in judicial misconduct. It received widespread publicity. Three months later I was deprived all contact with my daughters based on more fabrications by Kelly Hawse-Koziol. Desperate to replace me with a wealthy, childless substitute, she acted without conscience to destroy something that was so precious and promising.

Our court experts, victims and participation continue to grow with lively exchanges during our free nationwide conference calls focused on domestic court issues. They occur every Monday and Thursday at 7pm ET. You can join by calling (605) 313-4427; access # 583326. Click on to any of the links beneath the headings below to listen to our last three programs.
This Monday, June 1, 2020, at 7pm ET, we feature Dr. Anthony Pappas, a finance professor at St. John’s University. He is a 15-year divorce victim who has spent over $2 million in lawyer fees and court costs. His ordeal and interview entitled “The Endless Divorce of Professor Anthony Pappas.” Check that out by clicking here.
An advocate for court reform, Dr. Pappas was an expert speaker at our 2019 Parent March on Washington. This highly praised event included an expert panel at the Congressional Ballroom of the Holiday Inn Capitol. In 2018, Dr. Pappas was the Republican candidate for Congress against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC). He has a PhD from Yale University and a degree from MIT.
After an opening waiting period of casual discussion, this guest will be introduced like the others were with a 20-30 minute presentation before we open the session to questions and sharing of valuable information. It’s open to all, a public service of the Parenting Rights Institute. As for our last three vibrant calls, they are repeated below. Keep in mind there is casual discussion for 10-20 minutes at the outset until callers check in which can be by-passed through forwarding:
The first show on May 21, 2020 (conference call link above) featured Philadelphia Attorney Larry DeMarco of DeMarco & DeMarco P.C. A large number of listeners opened up after his presentation with more than 90 minutes of lively exchange. You can learn so much from this session and obtain encouragements along the way.
The second show featured the Gabriella Boyd Foundation on May 25, 2020 (next link above). Steven Boyd gave a heart-wrenching story of his 2-year old daughter, Gabriella, murdered by her mother to prevent a custody change. Our Candlelight Vigil on the front lawn of the U.S. Capitol (last event of our 3-day Parent March last year) was dedicated to Gabriella, veterans and family court victims everywhere. The mother was ultimately convicted of murdering her child and attempted murder of a police officer during the arrest. You won’t want to miss this victim story.
The third show on May 28, 2020 featured Dr. Martha Link M.D., a psychiatrist and forensic expert witness at court proceedings in New York City. She opens with her experiences as both an expert in PTSD and other victim conditions but also her own ordeal in probate court regarding the care and attorney exploitation of her elderly mother. Her 20 minute opening follows with an increasingly lively exchange among family court victims and advocates of court reform. This show has received great reviews in addition to the other two.
A common theme among participants and presenters is the abuse of litigants by courts and lawyers. The PRI Self-Representation Program is recommended in the recent video made available below. You can also obtain this program, our recently published book, Satan’s Docket, and other valuable items by calling the Parenting Rights Institute office at (315) 380-3420 or logging on to http://www.leonkoziol.com. My program is explained below:
Is there something more profound about this mass murdering virus which should make us ponder? That issue arose in last night’s conference call, and like others I promised to research, this Corona Chronicle is directed to it. Your reactions are welcome.
For starters, I’m not a minister or holy roller, but I do attend Sunday services and retain a private spiritual side. As a practicing attorney I cringed often at the greed and immorality which dominated our so-called “family” courts. It moved me to take a principled stand against my profession resulting in horrific retributions.
That profession holds no monopoly on evil but its tentacles extend to virtually all other callings. Today we see politicians unable to speak truth, suppressing free speech and promoting abominations like few other periods in human history. Never before have so many of the weakest of our species cry out: “please don’t hurt me mommy” before being ripped from their wombs.
Never before has a “civilized” society sold aborted body parts, harmed so many children, shown such depraved behavior and degraded their God-given bodies with bizarre forms of sex. Animal intercourse is believed to be source of the AIDS virus, and in my nearby county, a man was caught on barn camera molesting cows.
Closer to now, a New Jersey doctor “died (of covid-19) in his husband’s arms in their Harlem apartment” according to the New York Post three days ago. I still have trouble with the notion of two husbands acting out a marital existence, the same of women. New forms of legalized sex can’t lead to enough public rest rooms.
Worst of all perhaps is the destruction of family, respect for parents and our moral fiber as a nation. We live in a world devoid of conscience, and our family courts are breeding grounds for much more than a virus. They are breeding greed, conflict and hatred.
I thank God that I’ve lived long enough to crave the days when community, family and parent-child loyalties were the norm. I would trade that for electronic devices, impersonal exchanges and fleeting luxury any day. Simple pleasures were more satisfying.
And maybe that is where this virus will ultimately take us. Maybe we have much less to fear after all. And so, when I went looking for religious answers to some of yesterday’s questions, I was quite dismayed when flipping open the bible to a random page. And here is what I found:
Romans 2: 1-32: subtitled, HUMANITY LOST WITHOUT THE GOSPEL
God’s Power for salvation
For I am not ashamed of the gospel. It is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes… For in it is revealed the righteousness of God from faith to faith; as it is written, “The one who is righteous by faith will live.
Punishment of Idolators
The wrath of God is indeed being revealed from heaven against every impiety and wickedness of those who suppress the truth by their wickedness. For what can be known about God is evident to them, because God made it evident to them. Ever since the creation of the world, his invisible attributes of eternal power and divinity have been able to be understood and perceived by those he has made.
As a result, they have no excuse, for although they knew God they did not accord him glory as God or give him thanks. Instead they became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless minds were darkened. While claiming to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for the likeness of an image of mortal man or of birds or of four-legged animals or of snakes.
Therefore, God handed them over to impurity through the lusts of their hearts for the mutual degradation of their bodies. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie and revered and worshiped the creature rather than the creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
Therefore, God handed them over to degrading passions. Their females exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the males likewise gave up natural relations with females and burned with lust for one another. Males did shameful things with males and thus received in their own persons the due penalty for their perversity. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God handed them over to their undiscerning mind to do what is improper.
They are filled with every form of wickedness, evil, greed and malice, full of envy, murder, rivalry, treachery, and spite. They are gossipers and scandal-mongers and they hate God. They are insolent, haughty, boastful, ingenious in their wickedness, and rebellious toward their parents. They are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Although they know the just decree of God that all who practice such things deserve death, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.
Shocking parallels can be drawn from this harsh reality and the prophesy which these biblical passages suggest. Could it be that “God’s invisible attributes” have been exchanged for an invisible evil which has no living qualities. Check out the expert depictions of the coronavirus and how it is “received in persons:”
A recent headline in the Washington Post asserted that the “coronavirus isn’t alive. That’s why it’s so hard to kill.” In another article, the newspaper explains that “once inside a cell, a virus can make 10,000 copies of itself in a matter of hours. Within a few days, the infected person will carry hundreds of millions of viral particles in every teaspoon of his blood.”
Johns Hopkins virologist Andrew Pekosz puts it in plain terms: These virus particles are a “destructive burglar. They break into your homes, eat your food, use your furniture and have 10,000 babies. And then they leave the place trashed.” So let us focus on the things we can control and stop this burglar dead in its tracks. Your families, children and future generations depend on it.
You can do so by signing and sharing our petition to prevent the spread of infection and crime from our nation’s epicenter using the link below:
JUST OUT: A New York Post Headline below which bears out what Dr. Koziol has been predicting as an out come of the coronavirus lock-down during this past month’s conference calls. It’s the “New Normal” at the other end of this crisis for hungry lawyers and victimized families unless we act now to prevent it.
Unless you live on Mars, perhaps a safer place to live these days, you must have concluded by now that our politicians fooled us again, this time beyond anything we thought possible.
They hoarded wealth, publicity and the good life while their subjects were hoarding toilet paper. Shamelessly they left their constituents wholly unprepared for this coronavirus pandemic.
Now there are certainly hoards of us who follow the rules, we live a moral lifestyle and are genuinely concerned for our families and neighbors. We work hard to live up to our work ethic, and that’s precisely what the politicians are relying upon to bail them out.
Whether you are a medical provider, public safety officer, front line military or food provider, our fearless leaders (none visiting an overloaded hospital) are now busy drawing attention away from their reckless handling of this crisis long before it got here.
It may all sound very convincing as New York Governor Andrew Cuomo exploits every report to spread fear across America en route to the presidency. Duped by his oratory, the public is quick to forget how only two weeks earlier, he was touting New York as the world’s welcoming city while delaying containment measures.
Only days ago, even after that city became America’s epicenter, he was still opposing the president’s call for a quarantine. Now, after federal relief facilities limited services to non-coronavirus patients, and after destination states issued quarantine orders against New Yorkers, Andrew Cuomo is resorting to upstate New York. Albany Medical Center is already receiving untold numbers of epicenter patients.
Roughly 90% of New York upstate consists of non-urban land area. Until recently there were few infections, none in the northern Adirondack region. Politically weak, it is now being exploited as an undeserved destination spot, not only to contagious persons and released inmates but also infected patients.
Andrew Cuomo’s main expertise is not epidemiology, it is political oratory. He is now targeting unsuspecting residents to work together while acting contrary to everything we know about this virus. The unanimous goal of infectious disease experts is to contain the spread where found. But the great orator is rushing it to remote communities without touching a single patient, transporter or health provider exposed at the front lines of his dictates.
America’s true national leaders in Congress are content to let the orator do his thing because that draws attention away from their own “fool’s day” follies. Only weeks prior to an explosion of coronavirus infections, members of Congress were pulling out of the stock market using insider information. They profited in the millions with no concern for those they were elected to serve, now forced to absorb the losses.
When called to task under public pressure, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer stated that he was opening an ethics probe into all this (about as effective as his costly impeachment strategy). One of those to be investigated replied with great confidence that no wrong was committed because he helped write the ethics laws (and therefore knew how to get around it).
Now in light of that and more, how can you trust anything coming from such politicians while you are left with the horrific burden of survival and paying back a record $2 trillion dollar rescue package that serves the pork barrel special interests of liberals and the corporate bail-outs of rich tycoons?
Let’s show these politicians that we’ve had enough. Get yourself on the moral side of this pandemic. Sign the petition to protect against coronavirus spread from America’s epicenter (hit link below) and get on the internet to recruit millions more.
The above video, entitled “Parents Under Siege” is the first of a series used to promote our Parent March on Washington, subtitled: The Lawyer Epidemic.
By Dr. Leon Koziol
Parenting Rights Institute
At a campaign rally in North Carolina on Monday, President Trump twice told a crowd of supporters that he “knows many parents who don’t love their children very much,” see Haberman & Baker, At Rally, Trump Takes Aim at Democrats Amid Reshuffling of Primary Field, NY Times, March 3, 2020 edition, pg. A-17.
It was a statement I heard myself, and it remains unclear what was meant by it or why it was said. However, it should inspire parents victimized by our divorce and family courts to rally against a funding scheme that rewards these courts by the number of parents they can alienate from their children.
That shocking truth has been suppressed for decades due to the lucrative benefits that Title IV-D of the Social Security Act brings to lawyers, service providers and family judges. It is the truth behind a percentage of parents who seemingly “don’t love their children,” but are prevented from doing so by this funding scheme.
Lawyers “who don’t love ethics very much” may know little about how this funding scheme harms clients. But they do know from early financial statements in any divorce or support proceeding how much is available to pay for their fees. Once a parent is sucked into this court system, it’s a downward spiral. Lawyers incite needless conflict to keep the money flowing.
These are not genuine lawyers. They’re licensed con-artists preying on your emotions. They could care less about your children, mine or even their own given the precedent they set in these courts. Then, in an ultimate hypocrisy, they continue to maintain that they are bankrupting entire families and raiding college funds for “the best interests of our children.”
The judges (more accurately lawyers on the bench) are equally at fault in this custody gold mine. Financial incentives make them biased. They overlook and even promote the legalized robberies and kidnapping of parent-child relationships because they are rewarded by federal funds (Title IV-D performance grants) based on the number of “custodial parents” they can create.
Such funds are diminished whenever two parents can get along and need no “custody” titles. They need no government interference or supervision. This is why shared parenting laws are opposed by special interests and bar associations (so-called “professional” service providers who feed off the custody gold mine). That is also why mediation and settlement are also thwarted.
This category of moms and dads love their children beyond imagination. They will fight to the end to protect them, and that is exactly what these lawyers “love” to hear in consultations. They are there to test parents on how much money and assets they are willing to part with for the “best interests” of their children.
After 20 years as a proven attorney another 10 years as a victim, I have seen the carnage time and again. It’s all about the money. “Best interests” propaganda detracts from an epidemic no differently than tobacco, drug and food advertisements do. The child industry is now a humanitarian crisis with daily suicides, financial ruin and premature deaths. The difference here is that it’s being suppressed by the courts which profit from it.
Our federal courts may be more to blame. They were created for the very purpose of protecting our federal rights. But a look at the record shows the judges there abandoning their duties (despite life terms) to protect their state court colleagues instead. Any whistle blower lawyer or victimized parent who seeks reform and justice is targeted and destroyed no differently than the regimes our military is sent overseas to fight.
None of this will change until we parents make a profound public statement in Washington. A rare opportunity to do so now awaits you on May 27-29, 2020 when the Parenting Rights Institute will sponsor its Annual Parent March and Conference. We begin with an orientation session will occur at the Congressional Ballroom of the Holiday Inn Capitol at 7 pm on May 27.
At that session we will be preparing for our lobby day in Congress the next day. At 7 pm on May 28, 2020, we will sponsor expert speakers at the same location. This is a ticketed event. At Noon on Friday, May 29, 2020, we will assemble at Lafayette Square Park at the White House to begin our march under police escort down Pennsylvania Avenue to the Supreme Court.
Each Thursday at 7pm EST we are hosting nationwide conference calls to grow numbers for this event. These calls are not designed for war stories, therapy, legal advice or fringe ideas. We know what we are doing and will not tolerate moles and trolls who contaminate such efforts because they benefit from the system. This is a proven event for the sake of all victims.

President Trump has been kept in the dark on this “judicial swamp” and may be our only hope to clean up the corruption. But like former Judiciary Chairman, Senator Chuck Grassley stated at a recent Whistle blower Conference, “You can’t fix something if you don’t know its broken, that’s just common sense.” Let us now bring “common sense” to Washington.
Putting together a 3-day event of this magnitude in our nation’s capital is a daunting task to say the least. But we learned a lot last year with our first Parent March on Washington held on May 1-3, 2019. To make all of this happen efficiently, it became necessary to reschedule this year’s events for May 27-29, 2020 (one week earlier than the original dates set for June 3-5).
Already I have filed march permits, coordinated our agenda with the Metropolitan Police, assured an escort down Pennsylvania Avenue, and reserved ballroom space at the Holiday Inn Capitol for our organizing and expert speaking event.This puts us one month ahead of last year with three more weeks on the other end.
The hotel is ideally situated near the end of our parade route and only blocks away from the Capitol and congressional office buildings. It is in the middle of everything in downtown Washington D.C. and perfect for our second day lobby initiative or even a sightseeing tour. Those who attended last year’s events are already familiar with the venues and identical itinerary for this year’s Parent March on Washington.
Yes, we are growing the momentum. This is not another one of those “in-and-out” events in the sweltering heat of summer when Congress and the Supreme Court are not even in session. We must be heard and seen in the prime of weekday business activity if reform and accountability are ever to occur in our nation’s divorce and family courts.
This is a proven, credible event over a three day period which you will be proud to be a part of. You will learn, as those did last year, that you are not alone in your ordeals and challenges. We are focused this year on getting the attention of candidates for president and Congress with party conventions only weeks later.
We are also resuming our nationwide conference calls tomorrow. If you are interested in being part of our event management team, feel free to call our office at (315) 380-3420 or e-mail me at email@example.com. Keep in mind we are a grass roots movement reliant on donations and volunteerism. There is a lot going on now with much more to do on a daily basis.
Help us raise needed funds and spread the word on this vital affair to benefit parents, children and families across America!
For over a decade I have been researching, investigating and reporting on a growing epidemic in America’s divorce and family courts. My experience as a civil rights attorney and victimized parent made me ideally qualified to expose this epidemic. It also made me a judicial whistle blower with no legal protection.
Accordingly, the state was able to retaliate with impunity, seizing my income capacities, children, diverse liberties and unblemished credible reputation. It was all designed to convince the public that there was no epidemic, parent alienation syndrome (PAS) was a fiction, and lawyer profits were justified.
This reaction can scarcely be distinguished from the targeting of Dr. Li Wenliang, the whistleblower who warned of the existence and spread of the coronavirus. He was isolated, ridiculed and discredited by the Chinese government in a similar manner.
Sadly Dr. Wenliang made the ultimate sacrifice when he recently succumbed to the virus that he warned about. Like me as a victimized parent, he was the victim of a growing epidemic. And I was nearly killed by it.
This site, Leon Koziol.com, is filled with proof of this. For example, I sponsored the Parent March on Washington, a 3-day event that featured parental advocates and court reformers delivering my report to all members of Congress.
However, like Dr. Wenliang’s reports, it was ignored, censored and threatened ultimately by a shoot on sight threat of a traffic cop purporting to enforce an unlawful child support warrant. Follow-up lobbying efforts have fallen on deaf ears. Consequently the carnage will grow in the coming months.
In my report, I cited only a few prominent examples of this carnage, i.e. at pp. 10-11:
In countless family court cases, records are falsified and misconduct is concealed or disregarded to protect judicial reputation. Judges are widely deemed to be beyond reproach. Tragedies have there resulted from oversight failures and a lack of criminal prosecutions involving human rights violations under federal law such as the one cited above. Four cases highlight the horrific consequences to parents, veterans, families and law enforcement over the past decade:
On September 28, 2009, police Investigator Joseph Longo was ordered to pay $1,800 in monthly child support. He answered the same day with a murder- suicide leaving four children without parents. Even the district attorney could not predict this. A $2 million recovery was based on a zone of danger created by city officials as opposed to family court, Pearce v Longo, 766 F. Supp. 2d 367 (2011) LaDuca, Rage built Longo to murder-suicide, Observer Dispatch, 12/30/09.
On June 15, 2011, a father and war veteran, Thomas Ball, burned himself alive on the steps of a family court to protest years of abuse and separation from his children. It stemmed from a single incident of slapping his daughter, and he left behind a manifesto on how to firebomb courts. Even after such a horrific death, the ex-wife stubbornly defended herself by complaining that her children’s dad failed to comply with court counselling. This is how demented the process has become, see Mark Arsenault, Dad leaves clues to his desperation, Boston Globe, July 10, 2011.
On April 4, 2015, Walter Scott, an unarmed father was shot dead five times in the back by a traffic cop while fleeing a support warrant. The shocking murder was videoed by a concealed bystander. Contrary to national hype focused on racism, the victim’s funeral pastor blamed it on draconian child support confinements. Many concluded that the state was now killing for money given the revolving door outcomes. In vain, two reporters warned of this trend, see Robles and Dewan, Skip child support. Go to jail. Lose job. Repeat. New York Times, 4/15/15 at pg. 1.
On July 30, 2018, a physical therapist with a practice in Manhattan fatally shot his ex-wife, their 6-year old son and current wife in his Astoria (Queens) home. It became the final edict in a protracted custody battle fueled by judicial war games. After a failed Go-Fund-Me effort to pay his lawyer fees, in a page titled “Child Kidnapping,” the abused dad, James Shield, explained, “I had the perfect life a few years ago but it has spiraled out of control,” Moore, Musemeci and Sheehy, Custody battle led dad to family murder suicide, New York Post, July 31, 2018.
Less transparent are the countless cases swarming beneath these four which can easily explode. Their cause is wrongfully blamed on the parents. The public is duped into believing that an adversarial process yields truth and justice in our courts. That may be true in other forms of litigation, but when children are taken hostage by untethered lawyers, the opposite is true here. Parents commit perjury on an artificial premise that they are protecting their offspring. Sparks convert to forest fires, children emulate the dysfunction, and the perpetrators profit.
Join us and spread the word regarding upcoming events so that this epidemic can finally be addressed.
