My Third Novel's Conclusion, My Heartbreak

My heart begins to break when I think about completing this particular book -- because this narrative has sustained me like no other story I've known. It's both more personal and more universal than my other works. But beyond memory and archetype, it's a cri-de-coeur about needing to become the person one is destined to be. And in the writing, I have met my own life's work, my own fated journey -- having the sense all the while that the pages are suffused with a resonance, an energy, an electrified field that defies explanation. Writers hope and pray to be overtaken by a work in this way -- to be conscripted into passionate service of a profound story. To experience it even once in a lifetime seems a great privilege. I still have several months before this novel is complete, and this constitutes my reprieve. Because I'm not ready for the beauty to end.

My Contract with Attorney Nick Heimlich

In October of 2021, I attempted to learn the truth of Attorney Nick Heimlich's involvement with potential slander and defamation of me at the instruction of the FBI, and for pay from Infragard, but I was prevented from doing so by what appeared to be highly irregular intervention with the Santa Clara County Superior Court, as well as with process servers,  by the FBI.

Mr. Heimlich accepted my signed contract and fee agreement on January 15, 2021 at 3:18 pm via email from to in a communication with the subject line "Legal Fee Agreement."


Thanks for your email, I received the agreement and the payment.  We will be in touch shortly.

In October 2021, however, he denied that we had ever formalized this agreement.

Dear Lane MacWilliams:

I received your letter of October 6, 2021.  I do not know what your letter is referring to as to why you think I caused you any damages.

I never agreed to be your attorney as you cancelled the representation before I even signed the fee agreement.  You deposited a retainer of $3000 on 1/15/2021 and signed the fee agreement on 1152021, a Friday.  Before I could even sign the fee agreement you terminated the representation on 1/18/2021 (a Monday) and requested a refund of the $3,000 you paid (the only monies you deposited with me).  I returned the $3,000 deposit on 1/18/2021 as requested.

In summary, I did not become your attorney.  I charged you zero dollars.

I discussed your case by phone with you only, but did not render any legal services to you.  I did not contact any parties on your behalf, did not negotiate any claims, did not file any claims.

As far as documentation regarding mediation/arbitration, I have none.  See the fee agreement you signed attached.

Mr. Heimlich, I disagree with your assertion that you did not become my attorney.  Indeed, in accepting my retainer and agreement, we rendered official our understanding that you would represent me in a legal matter against Dr. David Lieberman.

Furthermore, I must point out to you that, even in consultation, prospective legal clients have the right to freedom from conflict of interest on the part of their prospective attorneys.  And they also, even in consultation, claim the right to attorney/client privilege and confidentiality.

Completely separate and apart from the issue of legal advocacy every individual has the right to privacy, and certainly, the right to be free from slander and defamation.

Thank you for your communication,

Lane MacWilliams


Commentary:  Why did I terminate Nick Heimlich's legal representation only three days after I signed his contract?  Because my stalker, who is reported to have close ties to both the FBI and Russian-affiliated organized crime in the United States, communicated to me that Nick was "owned by us."  This is an allegation on my stalker's part, obviously, not a statement of fact.  But I felt there was a high likelihood that Mr Heimlich had been contacted by the FBI in order to undermine the quality of my legal representation going forward.

Clearly these acts, if they occurred, are unconstitutional.

An attorney should never maintain a conflict of interest (such as accepting pay from Infragard in return for  poor representation of a client, for example) while expressing to the client that he is representing her interests faithfully and to the best of his ability.

If indeed the FBI is undermining the legal representation of "targets of interest," thereby depriving them of due process under the law, the violations of Americans' civil rights would be staggering in their implications.

Did these violations of constitutional rights occur in this case?

I believe that investigators from the Office of the Inspector General Hotline will have the ability to ascertain the truth.

The answer matters to all Americans who love democracy.
