Ramon Abbas also known as Hushpuppi got another top lawyer Vicki Podberesky from California to support his Lawyer Gal Pissetzky who is licensed only to practice in Chicago.
Vicki Podberesky works in a law firm in Los Angeles (Andrues/Podberesky law firm) which specialize in representing individuals in both state and federal criminal matters as well as companies and individuals in both administrative and in-house investigations.
Pissetzky had applied to appear Pro hac vice on behalf of the alleged fraudster in California on July 22, with an attestation letter from the Attorney Registration and the Disciplinary Commission of the Supreme Court in Illinois.
According to Premium Times Mrs Podberesky was hired as the local counsel to work with Mr Pissetzky after Justice Pedr V Castillo of the U.S court in California granted the Chicago lawyer’s Pro Hac vice request.
Pissetzky who spoke with the publication, also disclosed that the case is far from being set to go to trial as the U.S. government is yet to turn over all the evidence. He said the date for the next appearance has not been released yet.
