What Scientology Does to people

Helena and Michael Kobrin

Helena Kempner Kobrin was born on April 27, 1948. Her social security number is 124-38-3697. She received a B.A. from Hofstra University, and a J.D. from Seton Hall Law School in N.J., graduating from Seton in 1978. Kobrin was editor in chief of the Seton Hall Law Review, and authored a Comment entitled “Disqualification of Federal District Judges -- Problems and Proposals” which was published by the school journal, at 7 Seton Hall L. Rev 612, 612 (1976). In this well-written and well-reasoned article, Kobrin argues for a system in which federal judges can be removed from a case for reasons of bias by the attorneys in the case, under certain circumstances.

She got married, had two children, and stopped practicing law for several years during the 1980’s. Kobrin felt disenchanted by the legal profession, and has said that she did not want to practice law if she could not feel that her work was contributing to the improvement of humanity. She also has said that her interest in religious freedom and social reform was strengthened because her father was a refugee from Germany and her grandparents were killed by the Nazis.

In the mid-1980s, she started representing the Church of Scientology in Florida. In 1990, she moved to Los Angeles, and started working for Bowles & Moxon, a firm whose exclusive practice was Church of Scientology related legal work. She was then located at 6655 Sunset Blvd Suite 2000, Los Angeles, California 90028. Later, she became a named partner in Moxon & Kobrin, 6255 Sunset Blvd, Suite 200, Hollywood, California 90028, which continued the exclusive practice for the Church. During this time, she gained expertise in the practice area of intellectual property.

In 1995, Kobrin established her own practice. It is no small understatement that her work on behalf of her client has proven quite controversial.

Helena Kobrin has had several state and federal liens levied against her. On January 17, 1996, the State of California issued a tax lien (certificate number 95348000049) for the amount of $11,846, which was only released on December 30, 1998. A tax lien (certificate number W952343064) was issued on September 7, 1995 for $136 and released on January 18, 1996. On August 31, 1995, the Internal Revenue Service entered a federal tax lien (IRS Serial No. 959526113) of $50,052 against the Kobrins, which was released on June 12, 1996.

Helena’s husband, Michael David Kobrin, was born on May 4, 1947. His social security number is 093-40-5627. He worked as a Vice President for G & G Solar, Inc. doing business as G & G Inc., 13351 Riverside Drive #202, Sherman Oaks, California 91423. In addition, the State of California assigned him contractor number 0599201. G&G was licensed to do plumbing, fire protection contracting and general building contracting. However the California Contractors State License Board, Dept of Consumer Affairs revoked G&G’s license #458782 after expiration because the company had an outstanding unpaid judgment, needed a worker’s compensation insurance or an exemption, and also needed a contractor's bond. G&G had a bond for $7500, which was obtained on October 1, 1994, but the bond was cancelled on July 4, 1997.

G&G's state license had been issued on July 3, 1984, expired on July 31, 1998, and was not renewed. Because of the license revocation, G&G cannot reapply until after July 17, 2003.

Michael Kobrin has also been the president, secretary and treasurer of Third Millennium, Inc, a corporation incorporated and registered on June 6, 1996 in Nevada as corporation number 12496-1996. Third Millennium was located at 850 South Rancho Drive #2321, Las Vegas, NV 89106. Third Millenium gave as its purpose “all legal activities” and issued 25,000 shares of stock. Kobrin supplied his home address as 7629 Fulton Avenue, North Hollywood, California 91605. Third Millenium filed its most recent report on September 10, 1996.

The Kobrins now own a home built in 1956 at 1842 Ransom Road, Glendale, California 91201-1251. The house has three bedrooms and three baths, with central air conditioning and 3096 square feet of space. The deed was recorded on November 25, 1998 as deed number 98-2162801 for parcel number 5618-027-011. The Kobrins obtained a 30-year purchase money mortgage for $346,400 from Capitol Commerce Marketing Co.

They bought the house from Donald F. Hasselbring, who bought out his wife Judith’s interest in the property on January 8, 1997. That deed was recorded on January 31, 1997. Donald Hasselbring also purchased the property from Sherman and Raym Itlaner, the previous inhabitants on December 27, 1996 for $409,500, who had lived there since they bought the house in June, 1973.

In 1995, the County had assessed the land at $33,708 and the house and improvements at $103,130, for a total assessed value of $136,838. In 1996, the total assessed value was $138,356. In 1997, the total assessed value was $141,122. In 1998, the assessed land value was $166,880 and the house and improved value was $259,163, and thus the total assessed value was $426,043.

From 1992 until 1998, the Kobrins owned a condomininum at 7749 Via Capri, Burbank, California 91504. The parcel number was 2401-046-038. This condo, built in 1976, was classified in the Sun Valley neighborhood despite the Burbank mailing address. The 1664-sq. foot condo had four bedrooms and three baths. A pool was available for their use.

They bought the condo on January 13, 1992 for $199,500, and recorded the sales deed on February 13, 1992. In 1985, the land was assessed at $48,100, the condo and land improvement value at $141,700, and the total assessed value at $189,800. In mid-1997, the condo property was reassessed by the county, but falling land values had taken their toll. The land value was upped to $50,000, but the condo and land improvement value had fallen to $100,000, and thus the total assessed value was $150,000.

The Kobrins sold the condo on December 28, 1998 for a sale price of $185,000. The transfer is recorded under document number 98-2362767. They sold the condo to Horace O. Scott and Tracy M. Halloran, who took out a 30-year loan of $148,000 from Novus Financial Corp.
