NJ Ethics Counsel says NY Holocaust Lawyer Ed Fagan should be Disbarred

In a report dated January 24, 2008, New Jersey Special Ethics Master, Arthur Minuskin, recommended that attorney Edward D. Fagan be disbarred from the practice of law in the Garden State. Fagan, who disputed the New Jersey charges, currently holds a license to practice law in New York.

Edward Fagan is most known for representing the original first named plaintiff, Gizella Weisshaus, in the 1996 Holocaust lawsuit against the Union Bank of Switzerland. That heavily litigated proceeding resulted in a $1.25 Billion dollar settlement in 2001, and generated a $1.3 million dollar legal fee to Fagan.

The blistering New Jersey Ethics Report concluded that Ed Fagan improperly used $39,902.25 of Holocaust Survivor Gizell Weisshaus’ money to pay his New York law office rent at 26 Broadway in Manhattan.

The disciplinary probe by the Office of Attorney Ethics of the Supreme Court of New Jersey also found that Mr. Fagan had lied about being authorized to disburse monies totaling nearly $400,000.00 given to him by Mrs. Weisshaus and another holocaust survivor, Estelle Sapir.

The New Jersey complaint resulted from a routine investigation conducted by the Office of Attorney Ethics when Mr. Fagan failed to pay his required annual client security fund fee. After he was suspended for nonpayment of the client security fund fee, the ethics committee further investigated Fagan to determine whether he was practicing law during the period of the suspension. That investigation raised questions about his possible misuse of trust account funds, including the Weisshaus and Sapir monies.

Fagan’s testimony during the ethics hearings revealed that in July of 2001, he received a $4.3 million lee fee in a Holocaust related German Global property settlement, in addition to the $1.3 million fee from the Swiss Bank case.

Previously, on Tuesday, August 28, 2007, this forum reported on one of the on-going horrors facing what people who know her describe as "the strong and beautiful Holocaust survivor Weisshaus."  That report was titled, "Patentgate Ethics Scam Hits Holocaust Survivor."

As a young girl, Mrs. Gizella Weisshaus survived the Holocaust, but recently and now 77-years-old, she finds herself on the growing list of victims ensnarled in the Manhattan attorney ethics scandal shaking the New York State Court system.

Background

In July of 2007, it became publicly known that many ethics complaints against attorneys in the Bronx and Manhattan were methodically mishandled-- effectively buried or stalled—due to politically-based connections, favors or back-room deals. The "Patentgate" matter quickly highlighted the need in New York for federal intervention since the alleged theft of dozens of U.S. patents by the inventor's own New York lawyers-- the once respected and politically connected Proskauer Rose law firm-- went largely and substantively unaddressed. The Patentgate ethics complaints were obscured in New York at the very same time the identical issues found The United States Department of Justice widening their own investigation and, additionally, where members of the U.S. Senate and House Judiciary committees called for further probes. The ongoing ethics shake-up resulted in the quickly announced "retirement" of Manhattan's top State ethics Chief Counsel, Thomas J. Cahill, Esq., and whose replacement is expected to be announced soon. (See the related August 24, 2007 story below: "Justice Department Widens "Patentgate" Probe Buried by Ethics Chief Thomas J. Cahill" )

Holocaust Survivor meets New York “Ethics”

Mrs. Gizella Weisshaus was the named plaintiff in the 1996 filed historic lawsuit against Swiss banks that, after being designated as a class action proceeding, was settled in 1998 on behalf of thousands of Holocaust survivors for $1.25 billion.

Gizella, however, opted out of that settlement because, she says, certain involved attorneys were more interested in paying themselves millions of dollars even before some of the survivors had received any money. She would also learn, she says, that someone "manufactured" a necessary amended complaint in 2000 by backdating that court document to 1997. And she would also find that in an unrelated estate proceeding where she was the executrix, her own lawyer, Edward D. Fagan, had failed to deposit more than $82,000.00 into an attorney escrow account choosing, instead, to use the money for his own various personal expenses. (Mr. Fagan also represented Mrs. Weisshaus in the subsequent filing against the Swiss banks and from where he ultimately received millions of dollars in legal fees)

The Devil's Advocate

An attorney ethics complaint followed, and in a letter dated May 6, 1998, attorney disciplinary Chief Counsel Thomas J. Cahill's predecessor, Hal R. Lieberman, Esq., wrote to Gizella to advise that since her complaint against attorney Edward Fagan had involved an "ongoing criminal proceeding" his office would await the outcome of that proceeding before concluding their disciplinary investigation. Then-Chief Counsel Lieberman also advised Gizella that his New York State ethic's office had requested a written answer to the complaint from attorney Fagan. Edward Fagan then hired his own lawyer.

Letter to Self

Approximately 9 weeks later, in a July 15, 1998 dated formal answer to the charges against him, attorney Fagan's lawyer submitted a 6-page denial of the various charges made by Mrs. Weisshaus. Astonishingly, attorney Fagan's lawyer, who he had recently engaged, was none other than Hal R. Lieberman who, in a 9-week period of time, had left his position as Chief Counsel of the New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, First Department Disciplinary Committee to join the law firm Beldock Levin & Hoffman, LLP.

So, essentially, on July 15, 1998 private attorney Hal Lieberman was responding to himself-- to his own May 6, 1998 letter wherein he, as the New York state-employed Ethics Chief Counsel had advised Gizella of the request for a written answer from the attorney she had filed a complaint against, and the same person who was to be Lieberman's client-- Edward Fagan.

Concerning the various ethics complaints against him in New York, no known action has ever been taken against attorney Edward D. Fagan.

To the right, see the documents marked:

1. NJ Ethics Findings- Disbar Fagan; and

2. "Weisshaus Fagan Lieberman" A May 6, 1998 dated letter from NY State Attorney Disciplinary Committee Chief Counsel Hal R. Lieberman to Mrs. Gizella Weisshaus RE: Edward Fagan (1 page); and A July 15, 1998 dated Answer to Complaint from private attorney Hal R. Lieberman to Mrs. Gizella Weisshaus RE: Edward Fagan (6 pages).

I can never be astounded by anything any lawyer or judicial employee participates in that is illegal or unethical!

N.J is slihtly better at investigating/prosectuting lawyers than N.Y.C. Even though he was charged in N.J the N.Y DDC will not do anything to him.

You can be disbarred in one state go to the next state and practice without a problem. I found that it is known in the legal comunity n.y is known as one of the worst states.
I have heard of lawyers that have been disbared in several other states they come here and practice. Thier is no way to check to see if your lawyers was disbarred in other states.

I filed complaints against Edward Fagen in the 1st Dept and they got buried. Everything was covered up and I was told by two people in charge to "get lost!"

Ed Fagan is obviously a person of minimal ethics and personal integrity. He should be shunned for his actions against innocent victims such as Gizella Weisshaus, my personal friend for the past 8 years. By the way, his stationery lists an address at 5 Penn Plaza, and yesterday a person who works in this building said that everyone on Ed's floor is "shady" and "not to be trusted" as they pay to rent a chair and desk in order to fool clients into thinking that they have an office in midtown Manhattan.

are you sure that the correct spelling of the name isn't "FAGIN" from my book Oliver Twist. "FAGIN" as you may recall was a villainous old man who employs boys as thieves. It seems he has resurfaced embodied in the carcass of one Edward Fagen. I certainly know that I would never trust anyone with the name "FAGIN aka FAGEN!"
Why is he still an attorney? Why hasn't he been disbarred? Who is he paying off? Disbar him, he is an festering sore on society

a teacher said...

following the conference on Friday, Mr. Fagen suggested that we have something to eat. I was one of the small group. Mr. Fagen launched into an attack on Mrs. Weisshaus. He said she is lying. Fagen told us that she lied in the Swiss case and lies about everything. A few of us asked him to cease and disist his disparging comments concerning Mrs. Weisshaus.
When he refused, we left telling him that he would not be representing us.
Only after this encounter did I learn of the New Jersey action in which the Ethics Counsel recommend disbarment. From this document I can see for myself who is lying and it is not Mrs. Weisshaus!
So I ask why is he being permitted to engage in the practice of law? Do we have no oversight?

Any Attorney who commits such criminal egregious, and unconscionable acts should most definately get disbarred and incarcerated for life. Hopefully, in prison they'll come across some BIG, ROUGH and TOUGH BOYS, and will finally get their just dessert ..and a reminder of what they have dished out to each and every one of these victims. Pay back's a BITCH.

I personally heard Edward Fagen make repeated remarks questioning Mrs. Weisshaus's veracity following the court hearing. What I experienced with Fagen did not make be feel comfortable with him, so I left. I asked my brother an attorney how Fagen could practice law and he was mystified.

holocaust survivor said...

I have known Gizella Weisshaus for over 30 years. She found Edward Fagin and brought him the Swiss Bank suit. She was the lead plaintiff of that suit. When she saw what was going with Judge Korman and Edward Fagen she withdrew as the lead Plaintiff and subsequently opting out of any settlement. When the professional predators saw the amounts of money involved they hyjacked the suit to their own ends. A former US Senator was a part of the criminal act to steal funds from Holocaust Survivors. The Nazi are not dead!

the alleged lawyer Mr. Fagen did not impress me either during or after the conference in court last Friday. He doesn't have my vote.

one of the teachers said...

There is some misinformation on this blog that really should be corrected. Mr. Edward Fagan (fka Feigenbaum) is still acting as our attorneyand will be doing so in court tomorrow (Wednesday 2/13). What has not been addressed is that Mr. Fagan's alleged former wife Elizabeth Fagan, a non attorney is dealing with us and advising us in the case. Mr. Fagan has taken a back seat and his "former" wife is running the case. Mr. Fagan is only a front. When you ask him a questions he will always say he must check with his former wife Elizabeth.
We are seeking replacement at this time for our legal council.

the Hal Lieberman situation is extremely troubling to the DDC. The record clearly shows that he (Lieberman) was at the DDC when the Fagan complaint was filed by Mrs. Weisshaus. Mr. Lieberman left the DDC, went to a law firm, then turned around and proceeded to represent Mr. Fagan against Mrs. Weisshaus. The DDC (as well as Mr. Lieberman) always knew this was a conflict of interest (violations of Ethics), but as long as it was a secret and no one knew about it, it was OK. The problem now is that it is out in the open and the preception is not good. Point of information for all - When Mr. Hal Lieberman left DDC for greener pastures, Mr. Tom Cahill took his slot. One question is where is Mr. Lieberman today and what is he doing. And the coverup continues...

a survivor said...

I want to tell everyone without Mrs. Weisshaus there would have been no Swiss Bank case. It would have never happened because they were always covering everything up. Fagan was an opportunist and really not a very good lawyer. Korman and those people gave us a few crumbs and we were told to go away - you got yours. Survivors have found that there is no justice for us.

Anonymous said...

Dirt coming....None of you seem to know about this...Fagan. yes, who is JEWISH, not only stole from the survivors, but while pursueing the holocaust case, did not have funds available to him to pursue it, so he "borrowed" money from his friend, or I should say suckered it from him and refused to pay it back, it went to court, he was ordered to pay back more than $750,000. Which of course, he didn't. Oh I forgot to mention, his "friend" was diagnosed with ALS and died last year. So in essence, he borrowed money from a sick friend with a terminal disease and waited for him to die so he wouldn't have to pay it back.

The is also the case where Fagan tried to sue the US NAOA for the tsunami that hit in Asia. O Yeah, the underage prostitute incident in Europe. I could go on, but the mear mention of his name makes me sick!

Anonymous said...

Fagan has sued every other plaintiffs' lawyer in the Kaprun case, a case in which he was disqualified for conflict of interest and unethical conduct. The other lawyers had had joined the defendants in moving to have him disqualified.

He was recently sanctioned again by the judge in the Kaprun case for trying to insert himself in the case despite being disqualified. He currently owes over $400,000 in sanctions and fee awards to other lawyers imposed in connection with misconduct just in the Southern District and Eastern District.

He filed a bankruptcy last year showing he owed over $13 million in debts, including $4 million in malpractice judgments, and had not filed tax returns for several years.

What happened in handling the original Weisshaus complaint by the 1st Dept surely raises big questions about the intregrity of the process. Seems that the 1st Dept should at least use the recent NJ decision as an opportunity to regain credibility
for itself by immediately moving to suspend Fagan pending the conclusion of the NJ process reviewing his recommended disbarment disbarment. As the comment from the 1st Dept in 2004 noted, NY and NY accord reciprocity to each other's disciplinary rulings. Fagan would be suspended in NJ but for the fact he was already ineligible to practice in NJ so there was no need for NJ to supsend him. But he still is practicing in NY. Baased on the nature of the NJ charges, which really deal with misconduct in NY, which would be a bais for a suspension in NY pending a final dtermination, it would seem appropriate for NY to move on this.

Might help to contact new chairman, Roy Reardon of Simpson Thatcher and new chief counsel about taking this action ASAP.

Interesting about the relationship with his ex-wife and the effect of Fagan's creditors. Are there any RICO suits pending against the Fagans? Also, there seems to be anissue about her engaging in unauthorized practice of law.

must say that the prior posting (2/14/08 10:08 PM) is quite illuminating, the Fagans never mentioned any of it to us.

Re suing other lawyers, check out Fagen v Lowey, Southern District case, 07 Civ 10293, where Fagen tried to sue various other co-counsel lawyers in the Kapron ski train fire case to prevent them from representing clients after he was disqualified for misconduct and conflict of interest. These were not even the lawyers who supported the motion for Fagen's disqual. Those lawyers sued in another case. Fagen dismissed the Fagen v Lowy case case after defendant lawyers moved to have him post bond, pay +$415K inoutstanding sanctions and fee awards against him in Southern and Easren districts,and submit any new filings relating to Kapron or lawyers or parties related to Kapron to magistrate for prior approval. Exhibits include prior ethics and sanctions decisions including 8/16/07 decision on disqualification, but not NJ disbarment recommendation.

on Wednesday past, we were in Federal Ct. with Mr. Fagan. Previously, the Judge told him that he had to have the papers filed by Wednesday. Surprise, he didn't have any paper ready to be filed, the Judge just looked around. Fagan then turned over our case to his former wife, who we now know is not an attorney. We were all looking at one an other and wonder who is crazy here? We are actively looking for council.

No non-atty can appear in ny state court, unless they have a certificate acknowledging that they are in law school or have just taken the bar exam, and then that is for limited purposes also. So how is FAGIN'S wife's handling any matter before the court or in any legal capacity, other than a possible paralegal...he can't turn the case over to her for representation of all of you. Non-attys, other than defts or complts whose case is before the court, cannot even ask for an adjournment in front of a judge! There appears to be many of you teachers and firing a lawyer and finding a new one takes only a day...get out but before he screws it up so bad, other counsel will reject defending you!

Fagan says he is Jewish. His wife told us that she wasn't really Jewish and didn't like the Jews. Being Jewish (she didn't know I was) that didn't sit well with me. But she did tell us that she liked Jewish money. Fagan was getting a lot at the time from the Jewish accounts in Switzerland. Sadly, it's only all about the gelt and not the people. Between them both there wasn't even a quarter of a mentsh.

Have met Edward Fagan a number of times never thinking much of him. He didn't do much if anything for us survivors, it was all for him. He's no mentsch.
I have lived through much in my life, when I arrived in this country I thought I was in heaven, it was a nation of laws. Since I've been here sadly it has become a nation of men, not laws. The same thing happened in Nazi Germany.

Fagan or is it FAGEN? you started in with the wrong group. NJ recommended that you be disbarred, well we're going to see to it that you are disbarred in NY and held up for the world to see the fraud you are. You're nothing but a SCUMB*G and a used one at that, we teacher are going to kick your sorry ass out of the illegal profession for good. And Lesbo Liz with be nailed for the Unauthorized Practice of Law. Just maybe you can get adjoining cells in federal prison. You will not silence us. Remember little feygela FEGEN, what goes around comes around. You want to sue, you can be sued too - ENJOY
STAY FAR AWAY FROM THE RUBBER ROOM CREW - SUCKER!

FYI: I understand that the "Owner, Operator & Editor of this Website" is out of town and unavailable--She is attending a lesbian-dwarf convention in Vegas. Can you get an adjournment?

rubber room victim said...

I wouldn't permit an ambulance chasing pervert like you, MR. FAGAN to represent me. Why you are allowed to appear in the New York courts is a mystery. So you sued the teachers did you. Well I'm going to organized as many teachers and others to sue you, MR. FAGAN. We will tie you up in law suits and get your license! You want to play, get ready.

I don' believe that Ed Fagan left a comment on this blog. Is he that dumb?
Someone is pulling our leg, right?

another teacher said...

that's not Ed Fagan...someone is trying to set him up...I don't believe it...we can call him in the morning

Dear Mr. Fagan,

You called me three times today to see how I was feeling about receiving a subpoena from Florida this morning(that you faxed there) to appear tomorrow morning in your office at 5 Penn Plaza, 10AM, in the case "Ed Fagan v Jeffrey W. Plaza, Esq.," (I know nothing at all about this case) and you mentioned another lawsuit filed against me and the person who Edits this website. We have, sir, simply provided a public service in our postings about what has been and continues to be written about you from other, verified sources...who, strangely, were never sued...and you want the article about you on Parentadvocates.org taken down immediately! So, which piece of information that has been already verified and published in other newpapers is untrue? Please be more specific. I have not been served anything, but I request that you stop screaming at me over the phone, threatening me, and then hanging up.

Thank you,

Betsy Combier

Mr. Fagan you should be ashamed of yourself for what you did in the Swiss Case and what you and your friends did to Mrs. Gizella Weisshaus the former lead plaintiff.
New Jersey took over 4 years to come to the conclusion that you should be dis-barred from the practice of law. So it should not take that long in New York to get your law license taken away.
Meantime you continue to oppress people and threaten them with law suits etc. I am an old man Mr. Fagan, but if I ever see you I'll show you what the Nazis did to us in the camps.
You're no Jew Mr. Fagan.

a fly on the wall said...

what kind of germ posts a comment on a blog and says you have been served? Why Mr. Edward Fagan, who else! The is one of the many reasons you are going to lose your license to practice law my boy. Has your "Former Wife" taken out a large insurance policy on you yet?

Ed Fagan ALERT:

Today I was in Brooklyn all day;

at approximately 12:20PM, Ed Fagan arrived at my apartment building in New York City and convinced my doorman that he had to use a bathroom, went to the basement to look for my apartment number, and terrorized my daughter, who was home alone and was very fearful that Fagan was somewhere in the building. Is this "normal" behavior for lawyers?

Comments, anyone?

Betsy Combier

a fagan victim said...

absolutely, this is standard policy for the ambulance chasing shyster bully Fagan. The doorman should've called the police and had him taken in. I wonder how many young girls he has terrorized? Does anyone know if he has a police record? We all know he should be disbarred, it is only a matter of time. Betsy, you should geta restraining order along with an order of protection and if he violates either he gets arrested. Case closed another rat lawyer goes away.

the sleuth said...

Edward Feigenbaum (aka FAGAN) when all this meshuge is over do you think that you will be welcomed in Israel? Think about it if you are still capable.

Anonymous said...

Does anyone know of a lawsuit that Fagan actually won? The Swiss bank suit was "settled", Tsunami suit, thrown out, same with Borat, African Apartheid, etc., etc., etc. Sylvester Stallone, huh? It seems that other cases were lost due his lack of due diligence and subsequently resulted in fines and damages against him. What has he really done?

lesbian teacher said...

the Newark NJ case was filed by Ed &Liz Fagan to bully and threaten a former lesbian lover of Liz who has detailed knowledge of the financial swindle that in many people's opinion Ed, Liz and his father-in-law pulled off to hide monies in a fraudulent manner. Ed & Liz why did you file this suit? Let's have the truth come out.

Anonymous said...

there is a lot of juicy dirt in that suit, Fagan was crazy to file it, Ed & Liz were in a panic. lol people!

fagan victim said...

he is an empty suit....he's nothing

Betsy Combier said...

After Ed Fagan left my apartment house on March 4 - telling my doorman "I'll be back", (I guess to further terrorize my daughter, home alone, as I was in Brooklyn all day), he was unable to leave any papers in the lawsuit filed so that both the blog "expose corrupt courts" and "parentadvocates.org" as well as my blogs "nycrubberroomreports.com" and "nycrubberroomnews.com" would be shut down.

I filed a police complaint with the precinct near me.

Last night, Elizabeth Fagan sent me the following email, my response is there as well:

Dear Mrs. Silver Fagan,

I don’t know what you are referring to, as I have not been served anything.

Whatever court order you refer to is null and void, and I would like to inform you that everything that I post on my website “Parentadvocates.org” is true, and cannot be restrained as per my disclaimer, which neither you nor your former husband read, which is a pity:

Disclaimer: http://parentadvocates.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=article&articleID=1320

Your husband terrorized my daughter and the entire apartment building on March 4, 2008, and I have filed a police complaint against him. Please see the attachment. I was in Brooklyn.

I will be posting more material tomorrow.

Have a great day!

Betsy Combier

nyc attorney said...

this is a very interesting blog and the facts and comments beg the question is Edward Fagan and or Elizabeth Silver (Fagan) engaged in the unauthorized practice of law (UPL)? Has Edward Fagan been disbarred or he still under investigation by the NY Bar in light of the NJ findings and recommendation as reported?

Fagan, be advised that you will be disbarred soon no matter who your Rabbi may be! You can't pay everyone off!

Edward Fagan and Eliot Spitzer have a lot in common --- they're both whores

lawyer said...

what kind of putz is this jerk Fagan? What kind of attorney is he? Everyone knows that a party to a suit can't serve anyone involved in the action! Did this idiot pass the Bar? Fagan and Spitzer should both have their law licenses pulled.

My name is Edward Fagen. I am a retired physics professor living in Vermont. I have never met Edward Fagan and my name is spelled differently. I would like commenters to spell the lawyer's name correctly, so as not to confuse me with him.

I would appreciate more visual materials, to make your blog more attractive, but your writing style really compensates it. But there is always place for improvement
