Disgruntled Louisville Attorney Andrew Alitowski was disbarred from practicing law in the state of New Jersey on September 24th, 2007. 


An order signed by Chief Justice Stuart Rabner of the Supreme Court of New Jersey states that Attorney Andrew Alitowski was to have his license to practice law in that State revoked within days of the order being signed. Whether related or not, sometime thereafter, Andrew Alitowski moved to Florida and resumed practicing Personal Injury and Employment law for the firm that I founded. Lawyer Alitowski failed entirely to disclose that his license to practice law had been revoked in the aforementioned State until confronted years later in late 2012. . [continued below]....



At the time, Attorney Andrew Alitowski was practicing in the State of Florida while representing that he maintained an office in Louisville, Kentucky at the same time. While this in itself did not violate any ethics rules, his failure to disclose the revocation of his license to practice law in New Jersey to either the Florida Bar, the Kentucky Bar, his clients or his law partner raised serious concerns which were expressed by me to Attorney Alitowski alone.  In order to be certain, prior to confronting him, I personally confirmed that Andrew Alitowski had in fact been dis-barred from the practice of law in at least one State. Evidence of Attorney Alitowski’s being dis-barred was also ordered by the court to be posted on the Judiciary's website for the NJ Supreme Court. Additionally, the judiciary found it appropriate to publish the fact that Louisville Attorney Andrew Alitowski had been dis-barred from practicing in the State of New Jersey in the New Jersey Law Journal. The high court also found at the same time that it was appropriate to publish notice of the license revocation and dis-barring of Attorney Andrew Alitowski in the legal periodical the New Jersey Lawyer. Several lawyers were mentioned in the order who also had their law licenses revoked. From what I had been told, Andrew Alitowski had been practicing Personal Injury and Employment Law some time prior to becoming dis-barred in that State. Years later, upon verification I voiced my concerns about having a partner associated with my firm who had been dis-barred for obvious reasons. Infuriated at being made to feel embarrassed, Andrew Alitowski focused significant anger at me personally in the months that followed. This remained true even following my unsuccessful attempts to look into the matter on his behalf. To my surprise, Andrew instead became aggressive where I expected humility or remorse. Andrew’s lack of self control began almost immediately following our law firm separation and did not seem to conform to the behavior of the educated and licensed professional whom I had known.


One such example of his anger was to post fictitious and negative reviews about my practice through the use of a third party who is obviously failing at the task. This third party claims to be fugitive James P. Graffeo. A defendant who is wanted on a felony warrant in Fort Lauderdale for a drug case for whom Andrew Alitowski was once his attorney of record. While these posts are peculiar, they are un-important compared to the very real threats and actions taken against myself and my family. Over the past twelve (12) months these continuous threats by an individual sometimes claiming to be James P. Graffeo (and others referring to himself as John) have grown in severity in terms of intimidation and overall intent to instill fear. Following investigative work aimed at identifying the certain identity of the individual threating us with harm, information alerted James P. Graffeo and he immediately contacted me directly whereby he explained his reasons for wanting to harm individuals associated with my former law firm. As I suspected, the individual claiming to be James P. Graffeo had been solicited and was acting at the direction of another. I immediately contacted the State Prosecutor assigned to the outstanding drug case against Graffeo. We have filed police reports and were finally forced to move from our home of 11 years following break-in’s, sightings of and threats by an individual who did not seem to be in touch with reality as if under the influence of controlled substances. 

Random actions taken against us include this individuals gaining entry into our residence when we were away at work, stealing ammunition and random threats harm.  All of the aforementioned has been conveyed to the authorities. Without James P. Graffeo in Custody, however, South Florida Police are powerless. Please help.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of James P. Graffeo is asked to report his location to the authorities citing the Florida warrant on criminal drug charges criminal case number: 01014014CF10A. Fugitive James Graffeo was last seen in Broward County may have temporarily fled the State. Defendant James P. Graffeo is believed to be residing in West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Florida or Omaha, Nebraska. 

Fugitive James P. Graffeo is believed to work in the computer industry and has experience IT specific to information systems. 

Remember, Fugitive James P. Graffeo has made repeated threats to members of my law firm and my family. The threats made by Fugitive James P. Graffeo have been consistent and done with an apparent ability to cause bodily harm. James P. Graffeo should be considered dangerous. A cash reward is being offered to anyone who provides information leading to the apprehension of James P. Graffeo.



Since the time of this rebuttal, Lawyer Andrew Alitowski has possibly left the State of Florida and may be practicing as an Attorney in Louisville Kentucky. It appears from his website askandrewlaw.com that Lawyer Alitowski may once again be practicing Personal Injury Law and Employment Law under the firm name:

Law Offices of Andrew Alitowski, P.A.
332 W. Broadway
Suite 613
Louisville, Kentucky 40202

While a poor choice of agent to take petty action against my firm in the form of juvenile derogatory postings, there is nothing to suggest that Attorney Andrew Alitowski intended to persuade anyone to break the law, or to threaten or to intimidate anyone other than for the isolated self serving statements of the man claiming to be James P. Graffeo. 

Attorney Andrew Alitowski is eligible to practice in Florida and the Florida Bar website indicates that he has had no disciplinary history in the State of Florida. Our respective law practices are in no way affiliated.

my rebuttal...

AUTHOR: Andrew - (USA)

I just recently found this post by Mr. William Ryan Moore, my former law partner, to which we had a very bad law partner break-up for reasons I will not go into now.  But, his posts are obviously a result of that breakup.  They are not accurate and are mostly untrue.

What was written by Mr. Moore is not entirely true.  I took the Florida bar in 1995 and the NY and NJ Bars in 1996.  I never used the NJ bar at all.  As to the NJ bar I did initially pay the bar dues but then stopped.  During those years I failed to pay the NJ bar dues thinking they would just suspend my license but never did I think they would disbar me.  I moved around a lot from 1996-2007 and never received notice that I was going to be disbarred.  It was my fault that I did not keep the NJ bar with my updated addresses.  

Anyhow, in 2007, the NJ Bar "cleaned house" and disbarred many lawyers who were delinquent with their bar dues.  I was not the only one.  There were hundreds if not thousands.  I was not disbarred for doing anything wrong.  I was just disbarred for not paying bar dues.  That is it.

I am sorry that I did not pay my NJ bar dues.  Unfortunately, I cannot go back in time, but if I could, I would certainly pay them and not have to go through all of this.  During those years I could not afford to pay bar dues in 4 states.  I should have called the NJ bar and just gone inactive.  That would have stopped the bar dues from continuing.

As to the other statements Mr. Moore makes, I will take the high road because I could say some unflattering things about Mr. Moore in response but will refrain from doing so.  I will not stoop to his level.  There are many false statements in his report.  Let's just say that Mr. Moore does not like me and I do not like him.  I can't believe almost 4 years plus after our breakup I have to still deal with him...

As to those other statements Mr. Moore wrote, I will write what the Florida bar suggests and just say "I respectfully disagree with Mr. Moore's positions here, but the Florida Bar rules prohibit me from responding in any other way." 

The NJ bar disbarment occurred over 10 years ago and I am sorry that it happened.  I do not know what else to say...

Unbelievable Lies!!!!!!

AUTHOR: Eliot - ()

 This guy Ryan Moore is a crook and out of his mind! There is no photo of the stated fugative in the mugshots database.  Also confirmed with Office Thomas Squinini and Sgt. Steve Lambert Davie Police department that these are nothing but lies and slander.  There is no reward for any such fugitive. Also, as duly noted by Ryan Moore, Mr Alitowsky does not practice criminal law and was not the lawyer on record.  This is feeble attempt to knock a legitimate complaint by placing focus on mistake James made almost 15 years ago and Mr. Moore was hired to fix but just took the money and did not deliver any services.  If you have any concerns about what you have read here, please contact the Davie police department.
