Five attorneys from the now-defunct Yoss law firm have joined Gonzalez, Saggio & Harlan's new Boston office.
The New England office of what is now the country’s largest certified minority-owned law firm opened today, according to a news release. Gonzalez Saggio has 18 offices nationwide.
"These outstanding lawyers extend our national footprint and enable us to provide clients with outstanding representation across New England," said managing partner Emery Harlan, who was also a 2010 Legal Rebel Emery Harlan.
Yoss announced in March that it was closing. The decision followed firm co-founder Henry "Hank" Adorno's suspension by the Florida Supreme Court and his departure from the firm once known as Adorno & Yoss and a malpractice judgment that depleted the firm's bank account. According to former Yoss partners, the Daily Business Review reported, the firm owed Wells Fargo $8 million.
