Jeffery Chiow — Bully, Liar, Hypocrite

Grace Episcopal Alexandria -- Jeffery Chiow

Thinking about checking out Grace Episcopal Church? If so, you need to know about Jeffery Chiow, aka Sugarland Chiow. Jeff is an attorney with Greenberg Traurig, (previously Rogers, Joseph, O’Donnell) who has represented the church and, second only to perjuring priest Bob Malm, is responsible for the precipitous collapse of the church. And he’s still involved, so the decline at Grace Church will continue.

For those not already in the know, Jeff’s nickname “Sugarland” comes from an imaginary town in Texas he invented for his pleadings in litigation against me. That imaginary town of Sugarland is, according to Jeff, the scene of an equally imaginary church shooting, which he attempted to invoke as a reason to get a court order against me. 

Nor is that Jeff’s only fabrication in his legal pleadings. In one, he assured the court that I had never been an attorney, despite the fact that even a casual investigation would have revealed that I was, indeed, a retired attorney. In another, he falsely told the court that I had never been a police officer. In on numerous other occasions, Chiow lied to the court, telling it I had violated a previous court order. Guess the whole “honor, courage, commitment” thing from his time in the Marine Corps didn’t count for much.

Jeff also tried, in violation of Pennsylvania law, to drag my mother, dying of COPD, into court for a deposition. When confronted about this issue, Jeff waffled, alternately claiming that it just didn’t matter — he needed her testimony, regardless; and claiming that he didn’t know that she was dying. The latter cannot possibly be true, for at issue was her blog, which openly discussed the fact she was dying. 

Mom’s attorney also had a good observation, saying, “This attorney is coming at you with a personal vendetta.” But then, Sugarland sees no inconsistency between this and his claim to be a Christian.

In addition to the imaginary places and imaginary events above, and the fabrications to the courts, Jeff tried to bias the courts with inflammatory rhetoric, including claiming that blogging is somehow an act of “domestic terrorism.”

Nor did the misconduct stop there. Among other things, Jeff attempted to redact discovery to change its meaning, and concealed multiple pieces of evidence adverse to the church and perjuring priest Bob Malm. 

And in the midst of all this, Jeffery Chiow had the hypocritical audacity to send a settlement offer. That came despite the fact that he previously rejected a settlement offer from me, in which I suggested settling for nothing more than perjuring priest Bob Malm’s agreement to stop disparaging me. As part of Jeff’s proposal, he further suggested an “agreed-upon statement,” trotting out the predictable Jesus-babble about peace and love.

Subsequently, it came to light that Sugarland had filed a false police report against me. In it, he claimed that my leafleting the area around his home was a form of stalking and that I threatened him. That’s interesting, since there was nothing threatening about the material and I did not leaflet his home. Here is a redacted version of the police report:

In response, I launched a petition on, which can be found here.

If Jeff’s conduct typifies love as understood by Grace Episcopal Church, no thanks, you can keep it. And that is exactly the reaction of many who have learned of his conduct, that of perjuring priest Bob Malm, and that of the parish. As a result, Grace Episcopal Church is dying, imploding due to its own rot.
