Lawyers' Fund Reimburses Clients $6.9 Million in 2013

, New York Law Journal


The 218 awards approved for the clients of 68 attorneys ranged from $200 to $300,000 in 2013, for a slightly higher total than the average annual amount of payments from the fund over the previous 10 years.

    The fund selectively reimburses people for damages from unscrupulous attorneys and hardly pays out anywhere near the legitimate claims it should.

    This former “President of the Staten island Lawyers Association” and “local and political Albany Liaison” finally disbarred knows the law, has “USED” the law, is above the law “and is civilly” protected and still rewarded by……and we need answers how this was allowed and by WHOM. We request to Revive/Reinstate all the cases where his extraordinary negligence was responsible for silencing us and you can continue to reward him and play all the politics you want with him once we are all reinstated. We ask the courts to do the right thing for WE THE PEOPLE and revive/ reinstate our cases, with no threats from the private non-profits or their attorney’s that fear honesty and transparency. Once reinstated, the benefit to the taxpayers and the students of this great country can and will make a difference and go a long way in ending the ongoing “Culture of Corruption” allowed in this country. Morally, Do the Right Thing.

    The NYSAG Eliot Spitzer‘s friend applied to the Lawyers Fund for an alleged loss of $500,000.00. He received $350,000.00 from the Fund although the alleged loss had nothing to do with the lawyer that represented him in the concerned financial transaction. When this person applied he just happened to mention that his good friend Eliot Spitzer advised him to do so.

    Not long afterwards the lucky man deposited $110.000.00 in Spitzer‘s gubernatorial campaign. Nobody cares.
