How many times do we hear how a family business is destroyed by the next generation who think they do not have to start anywhere but the top. Both of these people were born on third base and they think they hit a tripple. The judge will be do they leave this office with more then they have taken out.

It is a no-brainer that you can't comingle client funds with the firm operating account. I am surprised that the stay of the suspension was issued. I suspect, though, that this will certainly be a wake-up call to them.

You should really pay attention. These people are operating as usual. There is a stay on the suspension. They can continue to operate as usual as long as they continue to send 'quarterly reports' on client accounts.
Who needs a lawyer bad enough to stay with one like this?? Utica is over run with lawyers. Is the Calli guy still suspended? I heard his kid is looking for an easy gig.

There are over 2,000 Lawyers in the Utica Area, so John and Lorrie really got off easy if they avoided a Suspension for stealing client funds, anyone else would have been Disbarred for Life!!!!!

In the paralegal/legal assistant circles, there are two law firms frequently mentioned as the worst places to work: Felt Evans and Petrone & Petrone.

I WOULD HAVE GUESSED THE lONGRETTAS. The old geezer is obnoxious and Dave has a bad bad temper. Thee is one that's a little goofey, Paulie, he's okay, but the others are difficult to deal with. real high opinions of themselves. For no reason.

Oh the money is working for the law firm at one point she was baking cookies and selling them. How sad this family went down . But you know what no one should take about people and judge people we never know about our own family. I can't believe how much John Petrone is hated I never knew this and what I can't believe how he owes everyone in town money,. How did this all happen,The father is a multi Millionare what happened. Look at the house on the parkway how sad once a very beautiful home. Another ruined by greed. Very , very sad feel sorry for Mr. Petrone.

Having the Appellate Division issue a stay on the Petrone's suspension is unheard of. Attorney's mishandling client's funds in their escrow account it taboo. Is the Appelate Division really openig up the door now to every other attorney who misuses their client's money. Clearly the Petrone's only turned themselves in after 30 months because they were about to get turned in. My bet is that someone knew someone. Wonder if Judge Clark (Romano) turned in a chip. She's very close to the Petrones.

Really would like the OD or Syracuse Post to investigate how a stay could have been issued on the Petrone's suspension. Now that would be interesting. Love to see how things happen behind closed doors!

No, it isn't unheard of. The court frequently follows the recommendation of the discipline committee. Guess who's on the discipline committee? Lawyers within the 4th Dept.

It all depends on who you know. I've known law school graduates who passed the bar but couldn't get approved to practice because of hatred or prejudice by one committee member. I've also seen attorneys get wrist slaps for serious professional misconduct from committee members who personally know them.

Corruption is not limited to political figures. Corruption and politics lives and thrives within the judicial branch.

a letter to the US Attorney in Syracuse NY with the facts concerning the decision...might get some parties interested in probing a corruption matter.
beat your gums on the forum or type up a letter.
the latter might be more productive.
