THE ADVOCATE'S DEVIL: Per Wickstrom Hires A Brand Spanking New Law Firm [And Puts It Right To Work Suing Former Best Drug Rehabilitation and A Forever Recovery Clients]

Per Wickstrom just hired himself a new "in-house" counsel, Phil Slot.

Per's Pocket Protector, formerly with Kreis, Enderle, Hudgins & Borsos, P.C, hung out his own shingle in July.

And it looks like Slot's completely hitched his wagon to this fast-fading star, larding his practice with these Wickstrom-related business:

Best Drug Rehabilitation, Inc.
Jade Transportation
Life Solutions Incorporated
TIA Corporation
Olive Tree Productions, Inc.
A Forever Recovery, Inc. 

And Slot's already begun earning his keep on behalf of A Forever Recovery and Best Drug Rehabilitation, the evil twin crown jewels of Per Wickstrom's empire.

The empire has indeed struck back, with Slot's able assistance, suing former clients for funds they ostensibly "owe" A Forever Recovery and Best Drug Rehabilitation.

One complaint recently filed by Slot alleges multiple counts, including breach of contract, and asks the court enter a judgment of nearly $70,000 plus interest, costs, attorney fees, and additional relief the court "deems just and proper".

Olive Tree Productions, Inc. was new to your girl Miss Fortune, and boy howdy has she dug up some dirt!

In the State of Michigan filing at left, entity President Per Wickstrom states the general nature of the business is "renting & leasing vehicles and personnel for temporary assignments". 

Although Slot classifies Olive Tree Productions, Inc. as "entertainment", your girl Miss Fortune wonders how entertaining it will be when the Slotster realizes that Wickstrom's "vehicles" cannot transport their "personnel" because the U. S. Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has effectively shut Olive Tree down.

That's right, on  May 28, 2013, the FMCSA ordered Olive Tree Productions to cease interstate operations. 

There are four general instances in which the FMCSA will issue such an order:
 -When the motor carrier receives a final unsatisfactory safety rating from the FMCSA as set forth in 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part 385 and the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st century (TEA-21);  

-When, after exhausting all due process options, the motor carrier fails to pay Federal fines levied from FMCSA enforcement actions as set forth in 49 CFR part 386 and Section 206 of the Motor Carrier Improvement Act of 1999;
-When the motor carrier is determined to be an imminent hazard; and,   
-When a new entrant fails an audit or does not schedule an audit within 18 months.

Public records show that Olive Tree Productions refused to permit a safety audit to be performed on its operations. FMCSA provided Olive Tree with written notice on May 28 that its registration would be revoked and its operations placed out of service unless Olive Tree agreed in writing, within 10 days from the service date of the notice, to permit the safety audit to be performed. 

There is no record that Olive Tree permitted the safety audit; its registration was summarily revoked and operations placed "out of service".

Miss Fortune is convinced there is so much more to this still-developing story...and you can only find out here!
