Reimbursements for Lawyer's Theft Hit $4.5 Million, a N.J. Record High

    Good point Tom. To be clear, all claims that were purely investments and not a part of the information he gained from his attorney/client relationship with his victims, were rejected. The investment claims were part of the difference in the claims falling between $54 million filed and the $17 million deemed valid that is mentioned in the article.

    It appears from the article this individual was operating more as a bogus financial advisor than as an attorney. That being the case why is the fund involved at all if these activities fall outside of legal representation?
