Jeffrey Abramowitz had worked his way from law student to named partner at the Center City firm of Klevan & Abramowitz. That all came to an end last December when senior partner Mitchell Klevan discovered evidence that Abramowitz had been depositing client funds into his personal account and diverting firm funds for his own purposes.
Klevan locked Abramowitz out of the firm and turned over the evidence to federal investigators.
Abramowitz entered a plea of not guilty in his upcoming embezzlement trial where the government is seeking $1 million—and Abramowitz’s 2008 BMW—in restitution.
Abramowitz’s law license in Pennsylvania and New Jersey has been temporarily suspended pending the trial’s outcome.
