My writings have been quoted extensively by Congressmen and Senators, during numerous Congressional debates and Congressional committee hearings. My works have been part of the official reference library of the United States Congress, Committee on Internal Security, the United States Subversive Activities Control Board, and the United State Senate Committee on the Judiciary.
United States Senator Sam Ervin quoted my works at press conferences, during the Watergate Hearings. He stated, before the media, at the American Bar Association Annual Meeting, in Honolulu, that my THE PRESIDENT VERSUS THE CONGRESS was "a ... (expletive deleted) good book!" This book was referred to numerous times, as a reference work, during the Watergate Hearings. It had a major impact on the pursuit of the Watergate Inquiry.
A major Committee Report of the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary, entitled "The Administration of the Internal Security Act of 1950," published in 1975, refers to my book, CONGRESS AND SUBVERSION, as the "authoritative book (... in the field)."
I have drafted legislation that has been considered and adopted, at both the state and federal levels, including on such topics as the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA), and the Federal Water Pollution Control Act. My testimony before the United States Congress was influential in the drafting of the Constitutional Oath Support Act. My book, CONGRESS AND SUBVERSION, was influential in affecting the procedural protections afforded witnesses testifying before Congress.
My representation of a major United States Department of State official had major impact on the "Fairness Doctrine," as promulgated by the Federal Communications Commission.
I have written source documents on such topics as National Defense and Regulatory Affairs for numerous Congressional campaigns.
The countless legal documents that I have drafted have structured major programs for my clients. These include the establishment of the Memorial Cancer Institute (a joint program of The University of California, Long Beach Memorial Medical Center, and Saddleback Hospital and Health Center), destined to become the West's premier cancer research and treatment institution. They also include the merger of the School of Nursing of the University of Southern California and the School of Nursing of California Hospital.
