As I have asked many times, where is Governor DeSantis? Where is Attorney General Ashley Moody and where in God’s name is the Florida Bar? The case in Florida against Deanna Williams, a victim of rape, is enough to not only move the hearts of law-abiding Americans, but enough to make the blood of those same Americans boil when it comes to what appears to be utter corruption and malpractice, as well as possible collusion between attorneys to deprive a rape victim of hundreds of thousands of dollars, including a former Oklahoma judge, Michael Chionopoulos.
If you are unfamiliar with the case of Deanna Williams, please have a look at the previous articles to be up to speed on it.

Florida attorney Michael Chionopolis represented Deanna Williams in a case brought against her, which the appellate court in Florida ruled there was no basis to bring against her.
However, before I divulge what Chionopoulos did in Williams’ case, which any man with a conscience would have gone to any lengths to reconcile, let me give you a bit of background on Mr. Chionopoulos.
In a report from 2006, we know that Chionopoulos was a divorce judge in Oklahoma. He was also voted to be replaced after district judges voted to remove him because of “inappropriate behavior with female attorneys, female law students and women with cases before him.”
Chionopoulos’ position was considered a special position that was the result of district judges hiring him.
Nolan Clay reported for The Oklahoman at the time:
Among the accusations is that Chionopoulos ordered an attractive stripper in a child-custody case to personally deliver to him the results of drug tests every Friday.
“He took her into his office by himself. … It’s unethical,” said her attorney, Steven Holden. “No other judge I’ve ever met would ask a litigant into his office and close the door and spend two hours with them while a case is ongoing or afterward, ever.”
He allegedly told another woman going through a divorce, “I wish I would have met you before I met my wife,” according to a written complaint given to district judges.
Attorneys reported the judge acted too familiar and flirty with female attorneys.
Attorneys also reported the judge treated female attorneys more harshly than male attorneys, being nice, mean, then nice again.
“It was strange,” attorney Doug Merritt said. “There were multiple incidents. That was part of the problem.”
Several female attorneys reported Chionopoulos would call them repeatedly on their cell phones, sometimes late at night.
“It was just kind of weird,” said attorney Michelle Roper, who gathered the information given to the judges. “A lot of phone calls, I avoided. … The latest one from my cell phone records was 10:30 … on a Friday night.”
Another attorney reported he touched her inappropriately on the back.
Understand that Chionopoulos was a senior vice president and general counsel of a public company in Oklahoma before serving with the U.S. Army in the Middle East during 2003.
This is a guy that should know better.
However, he moved to Florida and established a business as an attorney.
According to information provided to The Washington Standard, an anonymous source has confirmed that there is evidence that he has continued this behavior as an attorney in the state of Florida.
Mr. Chionopoulos has not only been conducting himself in this fashion with clients, but has also admitted by affidavit with the court in Florida that he “made an error” regarding a client of his, Deanna Williams.
Mr. Chionopoulos has been contacted no less than four times to retain a comment from him about his negligence regarding an agreed order in which he turned over at least $200,000 from his client, Ms. Williams, without her permission. He admits in the affidavit below, which was part of a motion he filed with the court, he admits it was his error, but he never sought a hearing to rescind the order and have Ms. Williams’ money retunred to her.
Here’s the court record dated June 1, 2018.
In the same motion, Chionopoulos says the error was his and his alone. He claims, “Ms. Williams is attempting to resolve a deeply personal and sensitive matter, which has caused significant strife in other areas of her life. The funds mentioned in the paragraph at issue in the Order are necessary for WILLIAMS to save her home in an unrelated matter.”
Chionopoulos acknowledges in the documents filed 6/13/2019 that it was his fault for misunderstanding and then not reading the agreement sent to him by Scott Mager of Mager Paruas, in which Chionopoulus turned over all future payments from a rape settlement case that Ms. Williams had coming to her to Scott Mager.
However, the question remains, if Chionopoulos really cared about his client, why did he not file for a hearing so that the judge could actually hear the “error” and reverse the order? Was it so that time would run out and that Mr. Mager would be $200,000 richer and that Ms. Williams would be vulnerable to his and the court’s threats, seeing that she would no longer have any money to fight against such oppression? It sure seems that way.
That’s not all.
Emails obtained by The Washington Standard between Mr. Chionopoulos and Scott Mager that the goal in the case against Ms. Williams seems to be to cause as much harm to her as possible in order to obtain a bigger prize… a lawsuit against attorney Gloria Allred.
Understand that Mager Paruas was allowed in the case by a judge that was busted in a prostitution sting after turning over stolen funds of $100,000 to Scott Mager by Ms. Williams previous attorney, G. Ware Cornell. When Cornell was contacted by The Washington Standard, he claimed that he had “inherent rights” to intercept a payment of $200,000 to Ms. Williams despite the fact that no written authorization was given to him to do so and in direct contradiction of his retainer agreement with Ms. Williams.
The email from Mr. Mager, however, seems to imply that there is a manipulation of both Mr. Chionopoulos and Ms. Williams.
Mr. Mager wrote:
‘As you also know, we were entitled to the original $200,000 that was paid at the time of the trial/judgments. As a special courtesy to YOU (and we would not have done this for anyone else), and in specific reliance upon your client’s agreed upon cooperation to help us secure payment of our judgment, we released $100,000 of that entitled-to money to your client.”
Nothing in the court record that I can find at LeeClerk.gov indicates that Mager had anything to do with the distribution of funds that were intercepted unauthorized by Mr. Cornell by Ms. Williams. In fact, the order is by the corrupt judge, Jay B. Rosman, the man busted in a prostitute ring sting. Was there a back door deal somewhere? Perhaps in the chambers of the judge and off the record by a judge that was busted in a prostitution ring sting just weeks later? It certainly is possible.
Both Mr. Mager and Mr. Chionopoulus have failed to return numerous phone calls from The Washington Standard for comment. It appears that Mr. Mager failed to comply with working with Ms. Williams in setting up a deposition last month, which resulted in the judge in the case issuing an arrest warrant for Ms. Williams while Mr. Mager’s firm continues to push her for a deposition on April 17, 2018, long after the court deadline of March 27.
Ms. Williams has at least $200,000 stolen from her by one of her attorneys. She has had another $200,000 given to Scott Mager, who had no interest in the original case whatsoever and that an appellate court ruled that the attorneys going after her provided no evidence for even freezing her assets, because of either negligence, malpractice or collusion by her attorney at the time, Michael Chionopoulus.
I mention collusion simply because I find it incredibly hard to believe that both Chionopoulous and Cornell had discussions with Scott Mager and just after those discussions, the woman who has paid them handsomely to represent her is out of nearly $400,000, of which $100,000 was reissued to her by an alleged criminal judge who got off without so much as a slap on the wrist.
Now, Mr. Mager is using the court to go after Ms. Williams after setting up an appropriate time for deposition to the point that he has demanded the court enforce the contempt issue against Ms. Williams and arrest her.
I ask, where is the governor, the attorney general and the Florida Bar?
When is someone going to step forward, put the brakes on all of this and settle this matter fairly and justly in the light of day with proper representation for Ms. Williams? Furthermore, when will someone come forward from the Florida Bar and actually begin the investigation into the allegations of malpractice, fraud and theft in the matter?
We can’t make America great again if we don’t stand up for the weak against injustice. Who knows when you will need someone to stand up for you!

UPDATE: 04-07-2019. Mr. Chionopoulos contacted me after midnight, early Saturday morning when I was asleep. Upon returning his call later that morning and being asked about why he failed to follow through with a hearing on the motion presented in which he admitted the “error,” Mr. Chionopoulos deflected to a previous agreed order that Ms. Williams signed over the $200,000 intercepted illegally by Mr. Cornell, but never addressed his own failure to represent his client and his own failure to follow through to retrieve another $200,000 that went to Mr. Mager. “Write what you want,” was his reply.
