Ramon Abbas a.k.a Hushpuppi has hired another lawyer to represent him in California, since Gal Pissetzky is not licensed to practice in the state.
Gal Pissetzky who is only licensed to practice in Chicago will now be supported by Vicki Podberesky of Andrues/Podberesky law firm based in Los Angeles.
The law firm specialises in representing individuals in both state and federal criminal matters, as well as companies and individuals in administrative and in-house investigations.
Pissetzky had applied to appear Pro hac vice on behalf of Hushpuppi in California, with an attestation letter from the Attorney Registration and the Disciplinary Commission of the Supreme Court in Illinois.
According to Premium Times, Mrs Podberesky was hired as the local counsel to work with Mr Pitsetssky after Justice Pedro V Castillo of the U.S court in California granted the Chicago lawyer’s Pro hac vice request.
Speaking with PREMIUM TIMES on Sunday evening, Mr Pitsetssky noted that the case is far from being set to go to trial as the U.S. government is yet to turn over all the evidence.
He said the date for the next appearance has not been released yet.
