AGA attorney Joshua S. Bauchner is representing Plaintiffs Atesa and Anthony Pacelli in a lawsuit accusing Ms. Pacelli’s divorce attorney of malpractice, negligence, and sexual assault arising from his engaging in sexual relations with her during the representation in breach of his ethical and fiduciary obligations.  The action has garnered much attention in the media as a result of the divorce attorney’s scandalous misconduct as alleged in a Complaint filed in Manhattan Supreme Court.

Mr. Bauchner was quoted by the New York Daily News stating that the divorce attorney’s “conduct was despicable, unprofessional, and unethical, and [we] are intent on pursuing all available remedies against him.”
