JOHN BALENT THROWS YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION IN HIS GARBAGE!
See that photo of John Balent's Office and those trash cans outside? That's where we found Client personal information over about 150 weeks in a row, simply put on the curb where anyone could have accessed your personal information.
Below you find just a partial list of over 300 individuals whose personal information was simply tossed in John Balent's garbage. For the majority of these names we have complete copies of your block billed billing statements that were tossed into Balent's Garbage and in EVERY case we have at the very least contact information on every individual listed below all taken from John Balent's Garbage. In many cases we have much more damaging personal information that we will not be posting for your protection. In some cases we recovered from John Balent's garbage items such as Tax Returns, Social Sercurity numbers, credit card numbers, bank account numbers, Home and Cell numbers, Private Emails and Email addresses, Names of Minor Childred, Medical records, Children's Medical Records, Minors School Records, Employment and income info, letters and emails from opposing attorneys and of course your case numbers, which lead to other private and public information.
We are continuing to sort through about 1000 bags of garbage and will post more names later this year.
If your name appears on this list, you should be able to collect up to $3000 in small claims court from John Balent for violating California Civil Code section 1798 and up to $5000 if you were damaged by your personal information being thrown in the garbage by John Balent. The Authors of this website will gladly volunteer to testify in Small Claims Court on your behalf and show the Judge the exact extent of John Balent's treatment of personal information among SO many clients. Imagine if everyone of these clients filed for the $3000 in small claims court, John Balent would be on the hook for over $500,000.
We also encourage you to file a complaint with the State Bar if your name appears below as this is a violation of The Rules of Professional Conduct Rule 3-100 Which reads in part as follows:
"(A) A member shall not reveal information protected from disclosure by Business and Professions Code section 6068, subdivision (e)(1) without the informed consent of the client, or as provided in paragraph (B) of this rule."
On or about September 1st, we are actually forwarding your names to the State Bar along with the personal info we pulled from John Balent's Garbage, but it's still a very good idea to file your own complaint so we can get this very unprofessional conduct exposed and reinstate John Balent's 2 year suspension or perhaps even get him disbarred and finally put an end to this predator.
In additon to the names below, we also found dozens of letters to and from opposing counsels for dozens of cases which in many cases revealed additional personal information on Balent's client's and their spouses and children.

What kind of moron attorney would throw SO MUCH personal information in the garbabe? John Balent of course, but it wasn't just client personal info he tossed in the trash, there was much personal information on John Balent himself, his Wife Barbara (whom most of you will know as Barbara McNabb because they hide the fact that she's John Balent's Wife To You) Here is a Photo of the happy couple probably out spending your money.
We also found info on John Balent's Office Manager Kerry Mahler and her husband Lance Mahler's business "Penny Roofing". A fun fact is that you will find common Yelp reviews for both John Balent and Penny Roofing, which obviously appear to be fake reviews as are most of Balent's possitive Yelp, Avvo and Google Reviews.
We will be posting some of their persoal information later this summer, but in the short term, if you're having trouble getting John or Barbara Balent to return your phone calls, try visiting them at their home address at:
John & Barbara Balent
2051 Fallingleaf Cir
Brea, CA 92821
We haven't tested these phone numbers but a we believe these numbers to be associated to John & Barbara Balent, (714) 671-0749 as his landline number and (714) 529-3935 as his Cell Phone Number. Additionally these phone numbers were associated with John Balent as well, (714) 529-4911, (714) 904-0465, (714) 469-4861.
Can't reach John Balent? Try his Office Manager Kerry Mahler at:
How did we get these addresses and phone numbers of John & Barbara Balent and Kerry Mahler? Out of John Balent's Garbage of Course!
Why did we reveal Balent and Mahlers address and phone number and not Balent's Clients? Because unlike yourself's, John Balent, Barbara Balent and Kerry Mahler were reckless with their own personal information. Just how reckless were they with their own personal information? Well here is one small example, A note for a payment to American Express with Kerry Mahler's American Express Card number. What security did they take before dumping this in the trash? They went to the great effort to tear it in half, which is probably more effort that expended on your case. That was the security step taken to protect even their own personal information. What a bunch of reckless bafoons working in an industry that demands the atmost public trust. We put the pages back together, but if you look closely you can see where it was torn in half. As a courtesy to Kerry, although certainly not deserved, we have blacked out a couple of digits from the card number, but if you can guess Kerry's age, you can guess the missing card numbers. Here's a hint, the number is well over 50, which by the way is also public record.
Here is another interesting tidbit we found in John Balent's garbage that we would like to share with you. The image below, although pretty crumbled up when we found it, appears to be a rough draft attempting to tell his clients that he has an unstable client. The client is one of the authors of this website. What he fails to tell those clients is that the reason you might be contacted is because John Balent threw your personal information in the garbage and naturally he is afraid that current clients would dump him once they found out about his multiple Bar Complaints and his recent suspension and 2 years probation as well as his multiple malpractice suits, Civil suits by collectors for non payment of his bills, Judicail Sanctions, Block/Lump Billing practices and being forced to retun nearly $20,000 in padded fees by an aribitration panel. We seriously doubt John Balent would be stupid enough to have actually sent our such a letter, but then again he was stupid enough to dump your personal info in the garbage.
