I am terminating Shield Mutual’s services to Adam Kokesh due to non-payment, unremedied damages and lack of transparency in AVTM legal defense fundraising.
As regular readers of the Shield Mutual blog know, Adam Kokesh is a customer of ours. We acted in his defense upon his instructions after his 18 May 2013 arrest, very briefly after his 8 June 2013 arrest and again recently after his 9 July 2013 arrest. Adam Kokesh is a valued customer of Shield Mutual. Here is a whole rundown of the legal defense fund we created, promoted and administered for Adam. Money is a sensitive topic and Shield Mutual is committed to operating with transparency and integrity.
Shield Mutual and customer Adam Kokesh issued the following email to the 146 individuals who donated to Adam’s legal defense fund when he was arrested last month. Because the state dropped the felony charges against Adam that prompted the creation of the legal fund, Adam and Shield Mutual are offering to either refund donors’ contributions or enable them to apply them to holding legally accountable the individuals who attacked Adam on 18 May 2013 in Philadelphia.
