Meghan G. Christopher R.


A man named, Robert Rough, had became ill with cancer he had his lawyer, Stephen Krawitz, had gotten him an insurance settlement of $100,000 but Robert had never seen a dime of it. It had turned out Krawitz had stolen the amount along with nearly the 50 other clients he had assisted totaling up his stolen gains to an estimated amount of 1.9 million. After some time Krawitz had lied to Robert saying he had only totaled an amount of $35,000 while keeping the rest for himself. He was later found out and put into a federal prison for 12 years.
