Felidia Lawyer Speaks Out on Tips LawsuitMay 30, 2012 – In The News
Carolyn Richmond, attorney for the Lidia-owned Felidia restaurant, commented on the wage and hour suit stemming from former employees.
"Felidia isn't going to just back down," said Richmond. She added that Felidia's ownership is "comfortable and secure" in the knowledge that it has treated its staff fairly. She adds that Maimon Kirschenbaum, attorney for the employees, has "recovered a heck of a lot of money for his clients," but says he and his associates take home one-third of "any so called settlements, so they're not sweeping in like Don Quixote." Richmond adds, "At some point, these tip suits have got to stop."
