Marc Dreier & My Andy Warhol

Joe Simon-Whelan can’t seem to catch a break. First, his Warhol self-portrait is stamped denied (you can download a free copy of it here) by the Warhol Art Authentication Board; then he chooses the recently disgraced Dreier firm to represent him in his lawsuit charging

quadro_warhol1 the board with fraud, collusion, and manipulation. You can watch the BBC series about his plight and read my ARTnews article about it here.

    Talk about a commen thread…. Marc Dreier arrested in Canada for using a false business card
    I do not believe the irony or that this is true, this is the law firm who represented me against these two people Fahs, Iskowitz my cpa of 27 years. I filed this in court by my lawyer Dreier …I have been victim of ID theft, including copies of my driver license, my passport, social security card, credit cards and millions of dollars missing incuding art, wine….and I found out Monday 5th of Dec. the partner of the law firm is in jail for false impersonation and for embezzling money from his client. This lawyer is representing me for the same crime that he is charged with. I am a victim in my belief of the same thing that can be viewed in public court documents and or contact me about my story. Part of the story is with Bank of America refused to turn over cancelled check, statements for three years. Under several subpoenas from the court still refuse to give me all of my documents and I am going to the court again in February to ask for my own copies from the bank. Public court documents available at:
    or you can contact me directly at:
    I only want the same consideration for justice as any other citizen I also have many art work items that have been stolen….one being Andy Warhol ….
