9/11 NYPD and FDNY Fraud Cases

As recently reported in the New York Post, many former NYPD and FDNY employees are being targeted in a Manhattan District Attorney's Office fraud investigation concerning claims of trauma as a result of the tragic events of 9/11.

The report indicates that many recipients of social security disability pensions are allegedly living leisurely lifestyles while collecting taxpayer money. Moreover, others are being looked at as facilitating the alleged scam by submitting false paperwork.

The DA claims that many pensioners were receiving the funds under false pretenses, but there are always two sides to any story. Many targets of the probe may actually have debilitating PTSD or mental illness suffered as a result of their participation in their efforts at ground zero. Others may feel as though they have been swept up in an investigation even though they had nothing to do with any act or transaction related to the case.

If you or a loved one have been indicted or are being investigated for social security fraud as a result of the probe announced January 7, 2014, you need to speak with competent counsel to ensure that your life is not completely turned upside down by false allegations. We at The Law Office of Matthew Galluzzo are experienced former prosecutors who have all worked as assistant district attorneys at the Manhattan District Attorney's office. We have the experience and toughness it takes to fight charges such as these.

Client Reviews
Mr. Galluzzo and his team at The Law Office of Matthew Galluzzo are absolutely one of the best at what they do. The work tirelessly at getting the best possible result for the case at hand and they truly care about their clients. Galluzzo and his team were able to overturn and vacate my guilty plea, then taking a big risk where I could have faced a large amount of time in prison Galluzzo took my case to trial. He walked in there with the confidence and swagger as if he already knew everything would work out for me, he laid out every single fact and hole in the prosecutions case to the jury and came away with a full acquittal on every charge after just one hour of deliberations. In an instant, I had my life back! I would most certainly recommend Matthew and his team to anyone in need of legal help. Thanks again Matt! Client
