Ex-Office Manager's Theft of Over $1M from NJ Law Firm Forced Layoffs, Partners Say


A former office manager allegedly forced a Morristown, N.J., area law firm to lay off associates and staff by taking more than $1 million between 2003 and the beginning of 2010.

Beth Friedland admittedly took $448,721 from the Maloof Lebowitz Connahan & Oleske, which is located in Chatham Borough, and was sentenced Friday to a seven-year prison term, reports the Associated Press.

However, the firm contends she stole $1.1 million, and is pursuing legal action in an attempt to reclaim the money.
