I filed a complaint with the Cincinnati Bar Association against R. Joseph Wessendarp and have not heard anything. Mr. Wessendarp clearly perjured himself under oath, along with Bradford S. Franks and John Cooper. We had a trial 1/13/2011 , case #DR10080965 where Magistrate Rice threw out the prenup because it was over reaching and Joe Wessendarp clearly lied under oath. There was an appeal and Judge Sharon Kennedy reinstated the prenup although I had compelling evidence that Joe Wessendarp lied. Judge Kennedy would not allow us to present the new evidence to her. As a result my marriage was terminated with a minimum settlement because of the lies told under oath and the inability of Judge Kennedy to allow my lawyers to present the evidence that proved these people lied under oath. Since my divorce, my husband has continued to threaten and harass me. I finally agreed to send him custom made drapes that were clearly marked as "wife" on the settlement.
As I said, I have filed a complaint with the Cincinnati Bar Association and plan to pursue this issue. I am asking you how I should go about this procedure.
My divorce trial was horrendous and because my husband was wealthy and I am not, he was able to pay people off to lie for him. This is clearly an injustice and against the principles and oath taken by lawyers when they become lawyers.

Please help me to insure that this sort of thing cannot happen to other women in my position. This is completely wrong
and does not conform to the oath lawyers take. My lawyer and my husbands lawyer both stated that this divorce trial is one that could be in the history books as cases such as Gross v. Gross and Fletcher v. Fletcher.
I BEG you to look into this case and let me know what can be done about this injustice.
