11. Is it just a question of money - could I fix things if I had some money?

Surprisingly enough, even fairly large piles of money, are not enough to fight legal corruption.

You may initially have become a victim of malice by judges and lawyers, in part because you didn't have much money. Lawyers maybe told you they couldn't help you, because you didn't have money. But you will find that even if you win the lottery and get a large pile of money, you often still cannot hire any lawyers to really fight wrongdoing in USA courts and law firms.

It is nothing less than an iron wall of corruption with America's judges and lawyers. Lawyers are nearly always frightened away from representing you or helping you, if you are someone who has exposed or criticised wrongdoing amongst judges or well-connected lawyers, and that doesn't change because you can afford to pay legal fees.

However, if you do have or come into some money, you indeed can find lawyers who will defraud you and steal your money, but not truly represent you and fight for you. One way they do this is by the common 'research and review' scam. A sleazy lawyer fleecing a legal corruption victim, might first claim that you must pay him to 'evaluate the issues'. He takes a large pile of money, and writes a useless 'legal memorandum' he puts together from legal database sources, telling you there is this issue and that issue and blah-blah-blah, but in the end he refuses to help you, and all you have is a useless 'memorandum' as a result of the lawyer's fraud.

Another way a lawyer will steal your money is by making false promises to you, even giving you a phony written contract, and then just pocketing your money. Once he cashes your cheques, the lawyer then begins abusing you and backing out on his promises. He refuses to do work for you or file the lawsuits he promised, he suddenly tells you that you must keep quiet about bribery and corruption, and meanwhile he keeps all your money because of all his 'legal work' and 'research' on your case. And then of course the judges and the 'bar ethics' bodies will support the lawyer in stealing your money, perhaps getting a bribe out of the funds the lawyer cheated out of you.

America really has two legal systems using the same courts. One system is for rich people and big corporations, and those who can spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on legal fees and bribes. It has been said that the only people who can really truly 'fight' the legal system on somewhat equal terms - especially if false criminal charges are involved - are those who have 10 million dollars.

The other USA 'legal system' is for everybody else, who are simply pawns in the big legal 'game'. The average middle class or poor person, simply doesn't matter very much to judges and lawyers. You are just an object for the others to knock around whilst they pursue their career and earn money and bribes.

But even people who are wealthy, or big wealthy corporations, cannot directly fight the legal culture of bribery and corruption. Even lawyers for big corporations, are too scared to expose bribery and fraud by other lawyers and judges. They lose their jobs, companies and law firms are quietly advised not to dare hire such  people, and maybe they lose their law licence too.

Even a big corporation, confronted with bribery, will simply file complex appeals on technical issues, and hire other expensive lawyers who may bribe other judges, and make a bunch of political donations, to create the political and judicial incentives so as to get the initial bad results reversed or limited in some way.

Even the richest people in the USA have been targeted with legal actions after they did or said something against their brothers and sisters in the USA billionaire oligarchy. When they submit and start to 'behave' again, cases are dropped and investigations come to an end.

A business knows that if it speaks up about dishonest judges, it will have a bad time in the courts from other judges in the future. It will start losing big lawsuits, and may even be wiped out or destroyed, as judges take revenge on the company.

It is not 'law' that holds sway in USA courts, it is just as often a mafia 'under colour of law', operating with a legal veneer, a machine that serves the rich who are politically-connected, and destroys and damages the common people whom the oligarchy is willing to have robbed or destroyed. They want you to 'believe' in the USA legal system up until the time you actually need justice from it ... and then when you do have a day in court, they want you to be sufficiently intimidated and afraid, you do what you are told by lawyers who may be gangsters working behind the scenes with bribed judges, rich people, or the government.
