Hurting Immigrant New Yorkers
In addition to running Mr. T Carting, Thomas N. Toscano operated Thomas N. Toscano and Associates, a legal practice focused on immigration services (the firm recently named a new partner on its website.)
While the firm’s website states “It is the unfortunate truth that people try to take advantage of immigrants,” Toscano and his employees have been charged with exactly that. In 2010, New York State’s Attorney General charged the firm with fraudulently selling legal services to immigrant clients whose cases were never handled by an actual attorney. Toscano denied the accusations, and then subsequently settled this case with the AG’s Civil Rights Bureau in 2012.
