  • Kidnapped Baby, for whom Trust Fund was Created, Reunited with Parents

    January 19, 2011

    In 2004, the firm's web site contained the following item on firm news:

     

    "As part of her representation of clients who were upset that a lawyer, acting as trustee of a trust fund created for a baby kidnapped from Harlem Hospital in 1987, had not provided proper accountings on the trust, Lisa Newfield, working with Frank W. Streng, had reviewed the lawyer’s records, identified improper withdrawals from the trust by the lawyer and ultimately forced the lawyer’s resignation as trustee. The lawyer had been the subject of a disciplinary complaint before a Disciplinary Committee of the Appellate Division, First Department. Lisa and the firm fully cooperated in this investigation. Citing Lisa’s investigatory work on the trust, the First Department, having first suspended the lawyer from practice, adopted the recommendation of its Disciplinary Committee and disbarred the lawyer in a decision and order dated August 12, 2004.
