The alleged international fraudster, Ramon Abass aka  has contracted the services of a top-rated criminal defense lawyer, Loius Shapiro.

 

The top lawyer will represent him over fraud-related and money laundering charges in the United States. This followed the withdrawal of Gal Pissetzky and Vicki Podberesky, his former attorneys.

 

It was reported how the duo withdrew after months of negotiations with the U.S. government.

Recall that Mr. Pissetzky, a top Chicago lawyer was initially hired to defend the 37-year-old but was later retained as a record counsel due to the transfer of Mr. Abass to Los Angeles and the lawyer’s inability to practice outside Chicago. As a result, Ms. Podberesky, a California-based criminal defense lawyer, was hired by his local council.

In the application dated January 21, Mr. Pissetzky, who claimed to have been negotiating with the government over the case, said Mr. Abbas suddenly stopped communicating with him.

“Since Mr. Abbas’ arrest and arrival in the Central District of California, I have received voluminous discovery from the government and have been diligently reviewing it and investigating the allegations in this matter.

“My communications with Mr. Abbas is by telephone given my inability to fly from Chicago to Los Angeles due to the pandemic. Ms. Podberesky, as local counsel, has made several visits to see Mr. Abbas at the Santa Ana Jail and has also communicated with him by telephone,” he said.

Their request was, however, granted on February 22 and an order was issued in that regard.
