Lawyer kicked out of his office space following racist rant

Lawyer Aaron Schlossberg has been asked to vacate his office after a complaint was filed against him for his racial rant.


New York Post reported that the lawyer found himself in the middle of a controversy after a video showing his angry comments at Spanish-speaking restaurant workers went viral.

Schlossberg now has to find a new office space he his service agreement was terminated by Corporate Suites on May 17, 2018.

The lawyer was using a business center at 275 Madison Avenue, as his office address for his private law firm. The decision was reached by the company after the video went viral the previous day.

Schlossberg may also be in need of an attorney of his own as a Congressman filed a formal complaint to the state court system’s disciplinary committee.

Hayim Grant, the President of Corporate Suites, said that he was “completely shocked” by the clip. The viral video led to the decision as his actions were against what the company believes in.


“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.”

The information came to light even as Congressman Adriano Espaillat and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. filed their complaint at the New York State Unified Court System’s Departmental Disciplinary Committee.

They have urged the panel to investigate and possibly revoke his license.

Diaz Jr. said that he agreed with the Congressman who had called for the committee to examine the attorney’s “reprehensible behavior and review his law license for possible revocation.”

Schlossberg, who has been a member of the bar since 2003, has no disciplinary record, but the court system may “sanction, censure, suspend, or recommend disbarment,” said a unified court system official.


The minute-long video shows the 44-year-old lawyer threatening the workers at Fresh Kitchen food joint with a call to federal immigration officers to have them “kicked out” of his country.

He was angry at them for speaking Spanish. He pointed out at people and said that he pays for their welfare and their ability to be here, and the least they could do is speak English.

The food joint’s manager, Hyunsik Kong, said that Schlossberg began the ranting after he overheard a regular customer and a worker speaking to each other in Spanish.

Kong then asked the lawyer to leave, which he did, albeit without his panini.
