It has been reported that Ramon Abbas also known as Ray Hushpuppi who was arrested for multiple fraudulent crimes, has hired a top Chicago lawyer to help extricate him.
According to the court documents seen by Premium Times, Hushpuppi recently hired Gal Pissetzky, who is a senior partner at Chicago law firm Pissetzky & Berliner.
Although American prosecutors said Mr Abbas would still be transferred to Los Angeles “in the coming weeks”, he has decided to hire a top lawyer in Chicago to guide him through the process of transfer to Los Angeles.
Mr Pissetzky made the first appearance on behalf of Mr Abbas at the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois on July 6, documents showed.
Mr Pissetzky was called to the bar in 2002 and has practiced in Chicago since 2002. His firm’s website said he has been retained in high-profile cases and also widely recognized by major American media outlets as a legal consultant on serious criminal matters.
Already, court hearings have commenced for Mr Abbas to be removed from Chicago to Los Angeles where he was indicted on June 25 and a warrant issued for his arrest.
