New York to Recover Exhorbitant Fees From Scrooge Attorney

New York State Attorney General Andrew CuomoNew York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo is to reopen 170 estates of deceased people, in order to reimburse heirs who were gouged by a greedy Brooklyn lawyer Louis Rosenthal.

Rosenthal piled up millions of dollars in fees with the approval of his former law school pal, disgraced ex-Surrogate Court Judge Michael Feinberg.

On December 4th, the state Appellate Division disbarred Feinberg, and suspended Rosenthal from practicing law for two years.

From 1992 to 2002, Judge Feinberg awarded Rosenthal nearly $9 million in fees. He regularly awarded his buddy 8% of the estates’ assets, while lawyers in other boroughs typically received 6% or less.
