$21.4 Million Alleged Social Security Disability Fraud by Lawyer and Retired Police in New York

Posted in Disability Pensions, Labor News, NY Workers Compensation Claims, Social Security Disability, Zadroga 9/11 Compensation Fund Claims

It is also a sad day for the overwhelming majority of New York Disability lawyers with integrity. The lawyer who allegedly orchestrated the decade’s long scam, Raymond LaVallee, was a person I never met despite being a Social Security disability lawyer myself for over 22 years.

Hansen said. “Thanks to the Special Master, claimants will have ample time to fill out the forms.

Why Did Fealgood Foundation Invite Worby Groner Edelman Napoli Bern to Speak at Zadroga Lawyer Forum?

Posted in Zadroga 9/11 Compensation Fund Claims

Today I have been forwarded a disturbing and ethically questionable email from the law firm of Worby, Groner, Napoli & Bern, LLP. Peace & Love John Feal Founder & President
He is tarnishing his own reputation, and all those who work so tirelessly for the FealGood Foundation, by being involved in this lawyer circus. By recommending that 9/11 victims first go through a lawyer on the Fealgood Foundation Board of Directors, the more questionable the process becomes. The credibility of the entire FealGood Foundation is on the line now given their new association with the law firms of Worby Groner & Edelman and Napoli Bern.
