I’m Bill Windsor, founder of the American Association of Non-Lawyers. This Introduction to the American Association of Non-Lawyers article and video present proposed legislation to correct wrongdoing and corruption that violate our Constitutional rights.
The Recording of this Introduction to the American Association of Non-Lawyers Proposed Legislation is linked here.
The purpose of the American Association of Non-Lawyers (“AANL”) is to help all Americans who suffer from corruption and deprivation of Constitutional rights… those who can’t afford lawyers or who choose to go without a lawyer. AANL was created on Friday the 13th of October 2023. In less than a month, we had members in 49 states, DC, and Puerto Rico.
WHY SHOULD YOU CARE?
If you have been involved in a lawsuit or legal matter where you have represented yourself, you know why you care. Lawyers and Judges have unlawfully stripped the 325 million non-lawyers in America of our legal and Constitutional rights.
There few, if any, honest judges in civil or criminal courts in America.
WHAT IS A SELF-REPRESENTED PARTY?
Legal participants without lawyers may be called Pro-Se Parties, Pro-Se Litigants, in propria persona (abbreviated to “pro per”), Sui Juris, litigant in person, self-represented litigant.
THE SIXTH AMENDMENT TO THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION ESTABLISHED RIGHTS OF SELF-REPRESENTATION IN 1789.
The Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution provides the Constitutional right to self-representation.
In Faretta v. California, the Supreme Court of the United States stated: “In the federal courts, the right of self-representation has been protected by statute since the beginnings of our Nation. Section 35 of the Judiciary Act of 1789, 1 Stat. 73, 92, enacted by the First Congress and signed by President Washington one day before the Sixth Amendment was proposed, provided that ‘in all the courts of the United States, the parties may plead and manage their own causes personally or by the assistance of counsel.’”
So, our rights to self-representation were established by the United States Congress in 1789.
United States Supreme Court cases have written: “That right should be enjoyed without fear of harassment or judicial prejudice. Furthermore, no law, regulation, or policy should exist to abridge or surreptitiously extinguish that right. Theoretically, self-represented litigants have no less of a right to effective due process as those who utilize a lawyer.”
But in practice, self-represented litigants have no rights. All judges in America routinely violate the rights of those who don’t have lawyers. Lawyers routinely violate the Rules they set up, so if you don’t have a lawyer, you are screwed.
Most Americans cannot afford attorneys. Lawyers charge $200 to $400 per hour or more.
THE AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION IS NOTHING MORE THAN A CLUB WITH MEMBERSHIP RESTRICTED TO LAWYERS
The American Bar Association (ABA) was founded on August 21, 1878 (89 years after self-representation rights were established by Congress. It was founded by 75 lawyers from 20 states and the District of Columbia.
According to the ABA website: The American Bar Association (ABA) is a voluntary bar association of lawyers and law students; it is not specific to any jurisdiction in the United States. The ABA’s stated activities are:
- the setting of academic standards for law schools, and
- the formulation of model ethical codes related to the legal profession.
There are more than 1.3 million lawyers in the United States. In 1979, half of all lawyers in the U.S. were members of the ABA. As of fiscal year 2017, the ABA had 194,000 dues-paying members, constituting approximately 14.4% of American lawyers. We believe the ABA has dropped to 156,000 members in 2023. One of our Association’s goals is to have 156,001 members.
The American Association of Non-Lawyers (“AANL”) is being founded by thousands of non-lawyers from all 50 states and DC, not 75 men from 20 states and DC.
It took 140 years, but in 1918, women were finally admitted to the American Bar Association. The American Association of Non-Lawyers welcomed women from Day 1.
It took 165 years for the ABA to accept African-American members. The American Association of Non-Lawyers welcomed all races and colors from Day 1.
The American Association of Non-Lawyers will “compete” with the American Bar Association, the association for lawyers. The BAR Association charges $75 to $450 annually, and you have to be a lawyer. AANL charges a one-time fee of a penny, and you cannot be a lawyer.
The American Bar Association has Model Rules of Professional Conduct. In the Preamble, the ABA uses the term “Lawyer.” The word “attorney” does not appear. The term “pro-se” does not appear. But the word “lawyer” appears 74 times. So, guess what? AANL will only use the term “lawyer.”
One of the first things The American Association of Non-Lawyers will be publishing is our own Rules of Conduct of Self-Represented Parties. AANL will basically just use the ABA’s. The Rules are very good. The problem is in Lawless America, the rules are not used or enforced.
CONGRESS HAS NEVER GIVEN RIGHTS TO THE AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION.
The Bar Association is just a club with restricted membership. The only legal rights it has have been stolen from the other 325 million of us.
The United States Department of Education recognizes the Council of the ABA Section on Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar as a professional accrediting agency for law schools in the U.S. American law schools that are accredited by the council are termed “approved” by the ABA. That’s it for their authority.
This is EXTRMELY IMPORTANT. This is why The American Association of Non-Lawyers can succeed.
63% OF THE PARTIES IN STATE AND FEDERAL COURTS TODAY ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY LAWYERS.
According to the National Center for State Courts in the United States, Wikipedia, and many other sources, 63% of the parties in state and federal courts today are not represented by lawyers.
We clearly outnumber the lawyers, but they have all the power as all the judges are members of the club. You have to be a lawyer to become a judge.
The population of the United States is: 326,700,000.
83,000,000 lawsuits/cases were filed in state courts in 2019.
1,221,000 lawsuits/cases were filed in federal courts in 2021.
That’s a total of 84,221,000 cases filed annually.
This means 53,059,230 are self-represented cases filed each year.
But 44.4% are traffic cases. So, in civil and criminal cases (excluding traffic), let’s adjust for that.
83,000,000 cases were filed in state courts in 2019. 55.6% are civil and criminal cases of interest to us, or 46,148,000.
1,221,000 cases were filed in federal courts in 2021.
That gives us a total of 47,369,000 civil and criminal cases of interest to Non-Lawyers filed annually.
In 63% of those cases, at least one party does not have a lawyer. – 29,842,470 cases with a self-represented party. 17,526,350 cases where both parties have lawyers.
The self-represented parties are in the majority, but we rarely win.
TOP SECRET CORRUPTION RULES ARE USED BY JUDGES TO ENSURE THE SELF-REPRESENTED COMMON FOLK LOSE IN COURT.
Bill Windsor, founder of the American Association of Non-Lawyers, spent 16 years compiling a book of the Top Secret Rules used by judges to inflict corruption. It’s titled Benchbook for U.S. Judges – Corruption Edition, and it’s for sale on Amazon. $9.99. Every self-represented party needs to read this book.
JOIN THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF NON-LAWYERS
We need you to join the American Association of Non-Lawyers. There is a simple Form to fill out with contact information. It costs a penny for a lifetime membership. If you use the online Membership Form, Bill Windsor will pay the penny for you.
We need a lot of members, and it will take just a few minutes of your time.
WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF NON-LAWYERS
63% of the parties in state and federal courts today are Non-Lawyers. There are almost 30 million cases filed annually in which at least one of the parties is not a lawyer, but until now, there has been no association to help protect the Non-Lawyer parties. Those without lawyers almost always lose. This American Association of Non-Lawyers will help you for free, and we will strive to help the 63% obtain legal rights and regain Constitutional rights. See AANL.net for more information.
Nothing is required of you in return except to become a member. There are no dues, no duties, no obligations. But if we get 156,001 people to become members, we will be bigger than the lawyers club, and we can Save America.
Please join if for no other reason than to help those whose lives are destroyed by corrupt judges and lawyers.
Some People Have Misunderstood What They Agree To When Considering the American Association of Non-Lawyers
I heard that the Admin of an important Facebook Group won’t join because she won’t agree to be Pro-Se.
There is no such requirement. The one and only requirement is that YOU are not a Lawyer. Hire a lawyer when and if you like. Quit the Association when and if you like.
Joining this group is solely for the goal of getting justice for all, especially those who can’t afford lawyers. When you submit a Membership Form, it simply gets us closer to our goal of regaining our Constitutional rights. So, as I see it, the only valid reason not to join is if you oppose your fellow Americans having Constitutional rights.
What you need to understand is that this appears to be the best way for the 63% of us who do not have attorneys to be able to obtain justice.
What you need to understand is that tens of millions of people lose in courts every year because they don’t have lawyers and are denied even the most fundamental of rights.
What you need to understand is that our simple little form simply requests your contact information. If you don’t want to share your address, phone, or email, just put “Confidential” in those fields. but realize that anyone can get that information through a variety of online services.
What you need to understand is this information is not stored online, so it can’t be stolen. I download it to a Flash Drive and hide it far away from where I am.
What you need to understand is we will never publish a list of members. We have members in 49 states and DC. We only need North Dakota.
It takes 90 seconds, and your participation may help save lives, homes, elders, children, futures, and more.
