Manhattan Ethics Committee Whitewashed Dreier Complaints

The question for Manhattan Attorney Departmental Disciplinary Committee Chairman, Roy Reardon is: Exactly how many complaints against attorneys at the Dreier law firm have been whitewashed under Thomas Cahill, Sherry Cohen and Alan Friedberg? We believe their number should be higher than the number we have unless, of course, entire complaint files were simply discarded. Perhaps this question should also go to:

The Hon. Jonathan Lippman, Appellate Division, First Department, Presiding Justice; New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo; and New York Governor David Paterson.

Please advise us if you have filed an Ethics Grievance Complaint against the Dreier LLP law firm or any attorney employed there over the last ten years. Here's the latest on the Dreier LLP law firm:

NY Firm Smashed by Founder's Alleged $380 Million Crime Spree Files for Bankruptcy
The New York Law Journal by Mark Hamblett and Noeleen G. Walder - December 17, 2008

Declaring that "no effective management" exists at Dreier LLP in the wake of the arrest of Marc S. Dreier, the sole equity partner of the firm, a receiver late yesterday afternoon filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection for the firm and related entities. Receiver Mark F. Pomerantz said in an affidavit filed with the Southern District Bankruptcy Court that the firm faces "an accelerating onslaught" of demands from creditors, clients and its attorneys. (See supporting affidavit of Roberto Finzi.) Mr. Dreier himself, who allegedly defrauded investors of hundreds of millions of dollars, has no intention of seeking personal bankruptcy protection, according to his attorney, Gerald Shargel. However, Mr. Shargel said his client, who was moved from solitary confinement to the general population at the Metropolitan Correction Center on Monday night, is working with Mr. Pomerantz to "present a clearer picture" of his finances and to "deal with the court's concern that the money has somehow been spirited out of the country."

Under the Speedy Trial Act, the government must indict Mr. Dreier within 30 days of his presentment or initial appearance in magistrate's court Dec. 8. Mr. Shargel said he would waive that time limit for another 30 days, but no longer, "in order to work out some of the complex issues we are facing." "There are cases where the bail issue is more complicated than others and there are times when it takes a little longer than you'd like to win a client's release, so we are doing what I've done countless times before and that's get our ducks in a row," he said. Mr. Shargel said Mr. Dreier's first meeting with Mr. Pomerantz, of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, is scheduled for today. While calls to the firm yesterday went unreturned, an employee who answered the phone said that apart from a "skeleton crew," hardly anyone remained at the Park Avenue offices.

You're not be fair. He can't make his 'insurance' payments to the DDC if he's broke or in jail.

Will Alan or Sherry arrange payment plans?

Why is Madoff free and Dreier is in jail? Madoff stole 50 billion, and Dreier a mere 300 million.... I think a few people want Madoff to have a little free space to move around, if you know what I mean.

They should not be given solitary. They should be forced to live with each other for the next fifty years.

Friedberg, Reardon, Cohen, Lippman, Cahill and Kaye and Pfau should be locked in a cage at the Bronx Zoo within the monkey house. Only enough food for half of their number provided. Then watch them kill each other. The best of all; they'll be together again in Hell.

lovin' the legal fees said...

This is OK. As long as the lawyers keep making money off it. The lawyers have to make the money, either from making a mess or cleaning the mess up. Graft or a Mess, it doesn't make a difference, as long as the legal fees keep rolling. Gotta love it.
