The love affair between Attorney Adam Gafni and Vincent K. Tylor


Matthew Chan:
What is the deal with the love affair between California attorney Adam Gafni and Vincent K. Tylor?

It has come to my attention that Adam is now on his THIRD law firm (as it relates to his love-fest with Vincent's copyright extortion racket). The first was Woolf, Gafni, and Fowler LLP (WGF) which was originally registered in Texas but somehow found its way to operating in California and yet there was no trace of its corporate registration in California.

Then that supposed firm miraculously transformed into another supposed California law firm named Woolf, Gafni, and Cirlin LLP (WGC).  That too was a mystery to me.  Supposedly California lawyers in good standing allegedly operating in California and ONCE AGAIN no California corporate registration that shows a LLP of that name.

Both times, I did the research myself.  Both times, I reported it here on these forums of these "unsolved mysteries."

This time Adam Gafni is at the "Law Offices of Adam Gafni". (terrible website so far).

2811 Wilshire Blvd. Suite #780,
Santa Monica, CA

But clearly show Adam Gafni there also! Wait a minute, is Adam working at 2 law firms at the same time?  Or is the new firm being used to thug people around for Vincent?

According to the latest California State Bar record, Adam has made his new home in Santa Monica with a law firm under his own name.

But maybe WGC is slow to update their website?

In any case, Adam is using the dba Law Offices of Adam Gafni.  I see no LLP at the end which tells me that Adam is working as a sole-proprietorship. 

My guess is that he will keep more of the take of any successful Vincent K. Tylor extortions and Adam will pocket 30%-40% of the take.  Let's use 1/3 for kicks.  A "minimal" $2,000 settlement will net Adam a cool $650-$675.  Not bad money for sending a few letters, a few emails, and maybe a couple of phone calls.  My guess is he might put in about an hour total. Maybe 90-minutes if he has to work hard.

Interestingly, I haven't heard much from Vincent's "old" Hawaii lawyer friend (literally because he is in his 60's) James Stephen Street after he successfully shut down Vermont Woods once and for all from ever speaking again about him again. How convenient was that.  That was a nice parting shot.

I wonder if he is going to come out of retirement again to sue on behalf of Vincent.  Or is Adam going to do it? What a conundrum Vincent has?  Old Man Jimmy or Sort-of-Young-Pup Adam?

Matthew Chan:
It has taken a few years but I think we have finally uncovered the deal with the "missing" corporate registrations with the Gafni law firms. The insight found its way to me when a victim recently forwarded a copy of their email recently written and sent by Gafni Attorney, Jason Levin.

The short answer is that the California Business Search page does NOT list the Disclaimer text shown in the Business Search Tips page which states that general partnerships (GP) and limited liability partnerships (LLP) will not appear in online searches. It seems California Business searches only display corporations and LLC's, not other legal entities.
