The New York attorney caught ranting at Spanish-speaking restaurant workers this week has now lost his Madison Avenue office, according to The New York Post.
Aaron Schlossberg might also need to find himself an attorney after a Congressman filed a formal complaint to the New York State Unified Court System’s Departmental Disciplinary Committee.
Schlossberg had been using a business center in 275 Madison Ave. as an office address for his private law firm — but has been given the boot over the shocking video that went viral Wednesday.
“We have terminated his services agreement with us,” Hayim Grant, the president of Corporate Suites, which operates the business center, told The Post Thursday, adding that he was “completely shocked” by the nearly minute-long clip.
“His actions are just not consistent with our community and rules and regulations … It’s totally contrary to everything we believe in as a company and personally.”
In the video, Schlossberg is heard threatening to call Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers on employees of the Fresh Kitchen restaurant near his (former) office – all because they had spoken Spanish.
“My guess is they’re not documented, so my next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country,” seethed the man, who reportedly works as an attorney in the area.
“If they have the balls to come here and live off of my money — I pay for their welfare, I pay for their ability to be here — the least they can do is speak English.
Schlossberg’s hate-filled diatribe caught the attention of a New York Congressman and city official who were not about to let his behavior slide:
Congressman Adriano Espaillat and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. filed their complaint against Schlossberg to the New York State Unified Court System’s Departmental Disciplinary Committee — calling on the panel to investigate the attorney and possibly revoke his license.
“I stand with Congressman Espaillat in calling for the disciplinary committee of the New York State Unified Court System to examine the attorney identified as Aaron Schlossberg’s reprehensible behavior and review his law license for possible revocation,” said the Bronx borough president.
If the complaint is found to have merit, the court system will either “sanction, censure, suspend or recommend disbarment,” a unified court system official told The Post. Schlossberg, who has been a member of the bar since 2003, has no disciplinary record.
