Jared Kushner Is Being Sued By His Own Lawyers Over Unpaid Bills: Report
A law firm that represents senior White House adviser Jared Kushner’s real estate company in court is now suing the president’s son-in-law for lack of payment, according to the New York Daily News.
The newspaper reported Sunday that Corcnicello, Tendler & Baumel-Cornicello filed a lawsuit earlier this month seeking $102,000 citing unpaid bills. The law firm represented Kushner Companies in dozens of eviction and housing cases.
Kushner’s properties have come under scrutiny elsewhere. Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh announced in October he was investigating debt collection practices and poor maintenance at several of the company’s properties.
The company also faced scrutiny in May when Kushner’s sister, Nicole Meyer, a principal at the company, tried to lure investors by promising access to the Trump administration during a pitch to investors in Beijing.
A spokeswoman for Kushner Cos. told the Daily News that the company is “working to resolve this matter.”
