COMPLAINT AGAINST THE LAW FIRM MARGOLIS , FRIEDMAN & MOSES (FRIEDMAN & MOSES) LLP, and GORMAN& RANKIN PC.
(ACCOMPLICES WITH GLENCORD BUILDING CORP., GISTIZIA AGRESSIVO, CONSTANCE CINCOTTA , who poisoned me with Carbon Monoxide and Toxic gases).
In 2002 I hired the law firm Margolis , Friedman & Moses LLP, to represent me in a WC case. Attorney Mitchell R. Friedman from this law firm handled my case, and did nothing until 2010 when I fired him( no insurance, no medicine).
In 2003, I did a huge mistake to hire the same law firm for another personal injury case with a broken left ankle and left hip due to the landlord’s negligence.
Mr. friedman was not fighting for my justice; he was working for my adversary, the insurance’s carrier-Risk Management Planning Group and his illegal interests. He hate me. I was afraid to go in his office when he invited me. Always he yelled at me, screamed at me, verbally and sexually abused me. Once a young lawyer from his office tried to stop him. No way.
Mr. Friedman did not respect the Courts’ Orders, betrayed me, manipulated the deposition of Dr. Kosovich ( now fugitive), Dr. Head and Portnow at his mercy. Refused to submit my Reply Affidavit at Dr. Head, Dr. Portnow false affirmation in their medical reports and deposition done under oath.
My lawyer was very active to destroy my case, to humiliate me, to harass me, to insulted me, to put me down every time. He never was happy when I brought evidences. Now I understand very well why he was so unprofessional with me.
He invited me many times in his office only to verbally and sexually to harass me. I have to survive with the doctors sympathy, sample for medicine, and later with the Governmental help. He invited me in his office in 2009, and told me if I want to win the case , I must to come in his office “ afternoons to work at my case”. I refused.
Than Mr. Friedman started to terrorize me with his vocabulary, screaming at me, with his threatening that all my doctors will betrayed me, that the judge did not like me . He told me Dr. Kosovich will betrayed me, and many doctors also because they lost my file. Additionally, he mentioned from my money provided from settlement I have to pay him and the lawyer who started the case on 1997.
On December 7, 2009, I wrote to my lawyer, Mr. Friedman a letter because he did not stop the harass me, to abuse me, where I said:
“ …Please handle professional my case. As I wrote I refuse any settlement. The insurances wants now settlement. Where was the insurance in all this years? What knows the insurances about my disparate depression, about my pain, humiliation, nightmares, and insomnia?
I am broken and broke. The emotional and physical scars and traumas of stigma as a person with veteran history in antidepressant ……. , are the fabric on my bad life.
Once energetic and confident, I have become unsure, and a battle apathy, full of disparate thoughts. Please do not insult my sad situation. To be more familiar with my reality, send you in exhibit a very clear situation( Exhibit 1,2,3,4,5,6). I want to know why Dr. Portnow and Dr. Head saw in me a“ wealthy woman, wealthy“? …… be aggressive with the insurance who sent me in this miserable situation.
Do you have any idea what means to be accepted by doctors (some) only by sympathy for years? Where was the insurance? You really hurt me with this insistent settlement. Are you on my side? I want the judge‘s Decision!....“. ( Claimant‘s EXHIBIT R- Pg. 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,10).
Mr. Friedman continued to call me , to scream at me , to harass me and to threaten me that I will lose my case. On December 28, 2009, I wrote to Mr. Friedman:
“ I received your letter dated December 21, 2009. I am very ill, and I do not have sincere energy to talk with you, or met you. You only scream at me, tried to intimidate , to threaten, and put me down in front of your staff.
I apologies, but for third time when I wrote you, I refuse any settlement( first $ 30, 000, and after $ 5, 000). I want judge’s justice, and if you feel malpractice( as Dr. Portnow at all., ) .....
It is enough to be very sick and with a lot of personal problems. I do not have power to faith with my lawyer for my rights. After my court deposition , you are changed 180 grade….. I did not understand why Dr. Caronna did not give deposition? If some doctors lost the file is not a crime, you have their reports which I provided you. .... ( Claimant EXHIBIT R, Pg. 1B).
And Mr. Friedman started aggressively to sabotage my case. Only a few example: In 2002 the Risk Managing Planning Group ( The Respondent, The adversary) , paid Dr. Miskin to evaluate me for two times. The doctor filed a report in my favor. My lawyer, in retaliation because I did not answer at his sexual advances, after 7 years in cross examination precluded my adversary insurance ‘doctor’s report which was in my favor as:
Questions did by Mr. Friedman[ my lawyer, my adversary]:
Q: Doctor, when you took your history from the claimant, did you take into account her presentation to you regarding her mental status?
Q. Okay. And did you believe her.
Mr. Friedman: “ Okay. I have no more questions of the doctor, except that we’re reserving our right to have the doctor’s reports and his testimony stricken. I believe that based the filling dates at the board for both reports, that they were not filed within ten business days of the date of the examination required by Section 137 of the Worker’s Compensation Board. Under the circumstances we reserve our right to have those reports stricken as a matter of right and the doctor’s testimony”.
(WC -Deposition Document ID # 159851567- Pg. 10. L. 2 to 10. And Pg. 11. L9 to 23).
The Insurance’s Carrier lawyer said:
“At the request of claimant’s counsel to cross examine Dr. Miskin, the doctor was scheduled to be deposed on 11/30/09. It is noteworthy that Mr. Friedman questioned the doctor solely on the filling of his reports. He has requested the preclusion of his reports“.
Gorman& Rankin PC- Rebuttal Application- Page , Paragraph , April 2, 2010.
My ex- lawyer instead to fight for my justice, he was fighting to destroy my case. In this way he corrupted my 7 years doctor, Dr. Kosovich ( now fugitive) to do false affirmations under oath inclusive with self-incrimination. The Insurance’s Carrier lawyer said:
“ The facts already in evidence are in direct conflict with his testimony”
Gorman& Rankin PC- Rebuttal Application- Page 7 , Fifth Paragraph , April 2, 2010.
“Dr. Kosovich was deposed on 12/2/09. ….After deposition of this witness, we were able to secure his office notes“.
Gorman& Rankin PC- Rebuttal Application- Page 6, Seventh Paragraph , April 2, 2010.
Why this conflict? Who paid for this false testimony? Why Dr. Kosovich assumed so much risk? Who is interested in this “conflict with his testimony?”
This conflict of testimony confirm the Dr. Kosovich diagnosis. After the decision was done, I went in court and I read the deposition. I was petrified. After, in the same day I saw Dr. Kosovich and Mr. Friedman and secretly I recorded the conversation. Mr. Friedman accused Dr. Kosovich by killing my case, and Dr. Kosovich accused Mr. Friedman to be a bad lawyer, and because did false affirmation under oath, inclusive with self incrimination , now is fugitive from United States.
I did an Appeal as Pro Se, and I submitted documents ignored, or not filed by Mr. Friedman.
The Insurance’s Carrier lawyer said:
“ We further respectfully submit that as this claimant has submitted 587 pages of documentation to the Board, any new evidence she has submitted should not be considered………that she and her lawyer attorney had ample opportunity to do so and that no good reason having been shown for said evidence not being produced earlier;…
Gorman& Rankin PC- Rebuttal Application- Page 3, Fourth Paragraph , April 2, 2010.
I pledged the evidence to be accepted, and I asked that Mr. Friedman to explain why he orchestrate this charade with my case, why he ignored the court’s orders, why he did not submitted all my evidences ?, why he was protective with the doctors false affirmation, as Dr. Head, Dr. Portnov, Dr. Kosovich who falsifieed bthe truth under oath?, Why he gave to the insurances carrier possibility to say: “was offered in a complete vacuum”.
Mr. Friedman did not represented me, he asked me to work for his interests, otherwise no make sense why he did not use and filed my Reply Affidavit at doctors false affirmations, why did not filed my Affidavit with work search, my résumé, per court order, or the Dr. Mooney medical report ? WHY?
And as intentional obstruction of justice, ex-lawyer refused to submit Dr. Mooney medical reports sent him by fax and brought also personally in his office. He was so full of anger, hate, discrimination, malpractice, unprofessionally when he saw because Dr. Mooney treated me before 2003.
Also, Doctor Cocioba sent me in 2002 at his friend Mr. Friedman to take my case. Now Mr. Freidman together with the insurances carrier precluded and Dr. Cocioba’s medical reports to ruined my case, and who refused to give deposition.
The insurances carrier said:
“ Dr. Cocioba was scheduled to be deposes on 1/8/10.…….The claimant’s attorney has disputed the method of service on the doctor……A formal record had been made seeking the doctor’s preclusion and requesting that all of his reports on file be stricken from record”…..
Gorman& Rankin PC- Rebuttal Application- Page 9 , Third, Fourth, Fifth Paragraph , April 2, 2010”
My lawyer, together with the Insurances lawyer tendentiously, and illegally, ignored my robust evidence to destroy my case:
The Insurance’s Carrier lawyer said:
“We submit the doctor’s opinion on casual relationship was offered in a complete vacuum…
Gorman& Rankin PC- Rebuttal Application- Page 7, Sixth Paragraph , April 2, 2010.
The vacuum was created by my lawyer and the insurance lawyer who refused to see the evidences filed a few years ago, and refused to take deposition from my doctors who treated me for years, but took deposition from one who saw me once , and did not have any medical record, and my lawyer did not provided a copy from the file.
The Insurance’s Carrier lawyer said:
“ …..The claimant also indicated that she received psychiatric treatment at North General Hospital. Those records have never been produced. ……
Gorman& Rankin PC- Rebuttal Application- Page 5, Fifth Paragraph , April 2, 2010.
The Insurance’s Carrier lawyer must to have a huge courage to insult the court with false affirmations. How the insurances lawyer can afford to say: ”Those records have never been produced.”?, and must be punished for her acts.
The North General Hospital’s document was submitted in Board’s file on September 5, 2006 under Document ID # 118755300), Dr Scott Ira and Dr. Komissarowa Document ID # 118755299, 118770148 content 68 pages.
How was possible the insurances‘ lawyer did not see this evidences on file, ( over 100 pages), instead they[ Mr. Friedman and Gorman& Rankin PC ]saw Dr. Konecky’s report, only 3 pages ?
This doctor saw me only one time on 2001. Unfortunately , as I said before, I am not a celebrity, or a beauty. How was possible this doctor (who shredded already the medical evidence from 2001) to remember me in 2010? Why my lawyer did not fax him his report for recollection since the WC paid him $400 for deposition? Why did not ask the doctor about his report? Why? From Deposition:
Q: Doctor in the course of your profession practice did you have occasion to see the claimant ………?
A: I don’t recall.
Q: Do you have any record with respect to this lady?
Q: Do you have something possible under the name ……..?
Q: Do you have recollection of ever treating such a person?
A: Mr. Friedman: I don’t think I have any…..
Dr. Knoecky Deposition Pg. 6, L 14 to 25 and Pg. 7, L. 1 to 3. WCB # 161104…)
Maybe the Insurance’s lawyers consider to be above the law, to falsify so visible the truth, and has a “special and hyper nerves“ to lie about the North General Hospital medical reports.
Mr. Friedman was not fighting for my justice, he was working for the Insurance’s Carrier and his illegal interests. He hate me. I was afraid to go in his office when he invited me. Always he yelled at me, screamed at me, verbally abused me. Once a young lawyer from his office tried to stop him. No way.
My lawyer was very active to destroy my case, to humiliate me, to harass me, to insulted me, to put me down every time. He never was happy when I brought evidences. Now is light in my brain why he was so unprofessional with me.
My WC lawyer Mr. Mitchell R. Friedman sabotaged totally unprofessionally my case. He precluded the insurances’ doctor who was in my favor. He ignored the court’s orders to bring my Work Search ( I sent him as Affidavit). He refused to file my Reply Affidavit at Dr. Head.ad and Dr. Portnow false medical report. He manipulated Dr. Kosovich ( now fugitive) who falsified his deposition inclusive with self-incrimination . Same with Dr. Portnow, Dr. Head.
Attorney Mitchell Friedman verbally and sexually harassed me. He used me as a credit card, as his asset. For this from a proposal settlement of $30, 000.00 in final I got nothing due my lawyer and the insurances's lawyer.
Supplementary, after I fired my lawyer, the insurances lawyer had the courage under oath to falsify the truth by saying they served me a true copy of Rebuttal WCB Document ID # 207822299. I was NEVER served with any Rebuttal from the Law Office Gorman & Rankin as I mentioned in my Letter sent to Office of Appeal on April 12, 2013 .
REGARDING 2003 ACCIDENT.
I felt on the steers my building in 2003, due the negligence of the constructor’s company. I have broken left ankle and hip since. The Lenox Hill hospital under Mr. Friedman direction falsified the medical report.
Later the neighbors told me another women fail a week before me. Both of us had Mr. Michael Friedman as lawyer. After, a year and ½ . Mr. Friedman, “ miraculously” breached the contract with me and keep only the WC . I do not know about another woman because she left the building immediately.
The case was taken by another lawyer who again “ miraculously” lost the statute of limitation. Maybe they have any knowledge I must to die , and for this reason did not file evidence as affidavits in court, and my landlord continue to intoxicate me.
In 2011 after MRI , the doctors asked me to bring my 2003 X Ray at left ankle, and they saw broken ankle.
I contacted the hospital who gave me their insurances The RISK MANAGEMENT PLANING GROPUP, same with my WC carrier insurances.
I was contacted by the RISK MANAGEMENT PLANING GROPUP’s lawyer, who told me that she will help me if I will bring my X Rays. I said “ no problem” and I went at TD Bank , at my safe deposit box to take my X rays. BAD SURPRIZE ! WAS STOLEN!. ( I have an open complaint with Consumer Financial product).
After repeated violations at my Safe Deposit Box at TD Bank I closed the account. After a while, “ good people “ put part of the stolen evidences from my safe deposit box in storage.
I called the RISK MANAGEMENT PLANING GROPUP’ s lawyer and I told her that I found the X Ray. And she told me : “ Sorry, is too late. The statute of limitation from when you discovered the malpractice is over”. I anticipated this answer, because all my evidences with broken ankle and hip disappeared by being stolen by interested people.
Mr. Friedman, the RISK MANAGEMENT PLANING GROPUP’s lawyer, and the landlord ( GLENCORD BUILDING CORP who poisoned me with Carbon Monoxide and toxic gases), are not strangers in all these illegal acts.
At this time I still have medical bill for physical therapy l unpaid. Otherwise my ex- lawyers could provide the building’s insurance for treatment. But they did not, also Mr. Friedman did not for my WC case .
Attorney Mitchell R. Friedman pushed me in bankruptcy, eviction, collection, and now again in collection.
He did not care about my broken ankle and hip about my heath problems. He cared about his subjective and illegal interests.
He orchestrates all my lawyers to do illegal acts ( inclusive 3 lawsuit with forgery in my name, a life insurances and assets for half millions also with forgery in my name- what I know at this time). I decribed it before in Ripoff reports about GLENCORD and MERCK.
He was sure I will pass away (I will died ) with the GLENCORD BUILDING CORPORATION criminal acts to poison me with Carbon Monoxide and Toxic gases. He calculate everything to fraud American Government. Nor my WC case is took by SpECIAL FOUND, who filed also an appeal because was an mistrial at Mr. Friedman and Gorman& Rankin PC MERCY.
Because of the deliberate, unjustifiable, unethical, without integrity, and bad intentional nature ( criminal), in conspiracy I pledge for Justice and People with Power to set appropriate punitive damages in an amount sufficient to punish Attorney Mitchell R. Friedman, the Gorman& Rankin PC and the doctors who falsified the truth under oath ( in my WC case) for theirs conduct , and to establish an example to deter others attorneys, doctors, insurances from similar conduct.
