Law Firm Thinks Homelessness is Funny.

The firm thought that they would celebrate last Halloween by throwing a homeless-themed party - homelessness is so funny right? 

But the firm really got into the spirit with the staff dressing costumes that made them look destitute and signs describing the various faux problems their characters had. One sign seems to read “Will Worke For Food [sic]” and photos show part of an office named “Baum Estates.”
The pictures were sent to Nocera by a former employee of the firm. Nocera described their conversation as follows:
When we spoke later, she added that the snapshots are an accurate representation of the firm’s mind-set. “There is this really cavalier attitude,” she said. “It doesn’t matter that people are going to lose their homes.” Nor does the firm try to help people get mortgage modifications; the pressure, always, is to foreclose.
The column also notes that the firm has been under investigation by the New York Attorney General’s Office and recently paid $2 million to settle a US Department of Justice investigation.
 Steven J. Baum law firm and those employees will find themselves unemployed and underwater in their mortgage.

I'm not shocked easily anymore but this is beyond fucked up! The most uncivilized behavior I've seen by supposedly educated and "successful: people.

A disgusting group of heartless human beings.
Long Island Address: 900 Merchants Concourse Suite 412 Westbury, NY 11590.

There is absolutely no excuse for this behaviour.  This firm should fall apart and be disbanded.


  1. Utterly despicable! They take the word KIND out of mankind.

  2. A Law Firm is suppose to have ethics, a duty to the public. Lawyers take an oath. These lawyers, and their staff, show no sense of morals. It is an embarrasment to all. The lawyers should be disbarred.

  3. Shameless idiots. It goes to show you a law degree teaches many nothing about morality. Jasmine

  4. GROSS! The French nobility liked to dress as peasants too, before the had their heads cut off.


  5. What were these fools thinking? Heartless on the part of all involved.


  6. What an ugly bunch of lawyers who are supposed to help people. They make fun of situations they have helped create. Janice D

  7. It is shocking a company could be so callous and thoughtless. I hope their laugh was worth it. I think if their clients have any decency they will leave such a firm. Disgusting behavior.

  8. Great article exposing rotten people! They will regret this party for many years to come. Karma is a bitch. They fucked up royally. How fucking stupid.

  9. Cruelty is an ugly human trait! So is greed.

  10. OMG! The most twisted thing I've read about in a long time. Wow, pure stupidity.

  11. It would be like an HIV DR. specialist throwing a halloween themed party to have his staff come dressed as full blown AIDS patients. What a nasty and pathetic group of morons. Marcy K. in NYC

  12. Who appointed you moral police? I dressed as a homeless person last halloween. I put a cardboard box around me like a house. My costume got many laughs. You sound a bit uptight to write an article about a simple halloween them party. They were just having fun. Homeless people and people who lose their homes do so by faults of their own and they are a joke to society. Richard

  13. Richard- you have a warped sense of what is funny. If I were a client with this firm I would leave them most certainly.
