Sunnyside Attorney Under Criminal Investigation Closes Skillman Avenue Office

July 11, 2018, Staff Report

A Sunnyside attorney who pleaded guilty in May to helping the so-called Taxi King commit fraud has closed her Skillman Avenue office.

Andreea Dumitru, whose law firm was located at 48-23 Skillman Ave., has shut down her office at time when she is still in the cross hairs of state and federal investigators.

Dumitru agreed to pay the state $25,000 in criminal restitution and to cooperate with the Attorney General in her role of aiding Evgeny Freidman, the disgraced Taxi King who once managed a fleet of 800 cabs, steal $5 million in MTA taxes.

Meanwhile, in March, she was hit with immigration fraud charges. The federal indictment alleges that Dumitru submitted fraudulent forms for over 180 clients, and knowingly made false statements about them. She has been charged with asylum fraud, which carries a sentence of 10 years in prison, and false statements that carries 5 years in prison.

Poor lady is being charged with asylum fraud meanwhile the Democrats are screaming for open borders…I suppose if you’re eastern European the laws will be enforced and nobody is going to protest for you..If you’re from central America you can walk right in…

Yeah what hypocrites. That would be like if, say, a president was under federal investigation for treason!

When Melania did her nude photo shoot in 1995 she had not yet obtained a work visa. It was illegal immigrant labor. I guess your “if you’re eastern European the laws will be enforced” comment wasn’t 100% correct.
