Seiden Law Honors Constance Baker Motley for Black History Month

February 8, 2023

Seiden Law is celebrating Black History Month by honoring an African American who has significantly influenced the legal profession and community. This month, the firm reflects on the contributions made by Constance Baker Motley, the first African American female District court judge.

Motley received her undergraduate degree from New York University and her law degree from Columbia Law School. After graduating from Columbia in 1946, she continued her pre-graduation work at the Legal Defense and Educational Fund of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) with Thurgood Marshal. For the next 18 years, Motley continued her work, including nine triumphs in civil rights cases before the United States Supreme Court.

Following her work at the NAACP, Motley served as a trailblazer for African American women and a dedicated advocate for women’s rights as judge and politician. She first served in the New York State Senate for two years as the first African American woman to sit in the State Senate. In 1965, during her time as the Manhattan Borough President, the first women in that role, Motley devised a plan to improve the inner city.

In 1966, President. Lyndon B. Johnson nominated Motley to the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, making her the first African American woman to be appointed to a federal judgeship. Despite opposition to her appointment, Motley was confirmed as a federal judge after a seven-month delay. She continued her career with her notable contributions in Blank v. Sullivan & Cromwell, Belknap v. Leary, Mullarkey v. Borglum, and Ludtke v. Kuhn, among others.

Motley served to uplift disadvantaged communities during her career and left a deep mark in the U.S. law profession and community, an impact Seiden Law reflects on and hopes to emulate in its pursuit of justice for the same.

Seiden Law Group Appointed By Israeli Trustee To Recover Stolen Funds From the “Israeli Madoff”

August 5, 2021

Seiden Law Group LLP has been appointed as US counsel to Trustee Adv. Lior Dagan, the court-appointed Trustee in an Israeli insolvency proceeding against Michael Ben-Ari aka Michael David Greenfield (“Greenfield”). Mr. Dagan was appointed by the Israeli courts to lead the global efforts to recover the monies allegedly stolen by Greenfield.  Greenfield, who has recently been dubbed by Israeli media as “the Israeli Madoff,” is under criminal investigation by the Israeli Securities Authority following an alleged 15-year long Ponzi scheme in which Greenfield, through his investment vehicle EGFE Israel Ltd., ensnared hundreds of American and Israeli victims and caused losses that may exceed $150 million.  

As counsel to Mr. Dagan, Seiden Law Group has filed a Chapter 15 case in US Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan, seeking recognition of the Israeli insolvency proceeding in the US. According to the Chapter 15 filing, Greenfield moved to Israel from the U.S. thirty years ago and began to solicit investment money in Israel from investors in a “guaranteed” return investment scheme. The Chapter 15 filing explains that after being released under house arrest in Israel, Greenfield immediately absconded, reportedly using a false passport, and has concealed his current whereabouts. The case has been referred to the FBI’s New York office.

On August 6, 2021, Bankruptcy Judge Hon. Shelley Chapman granted a powerful court order granting broad powers to Mr. Dagan, to recover assets in the United States that are identified as fruits of the alleged criminal enterprise. Seiden Law Group now moves forward with Mr. Dagan to identify and recover stolen funds, using the full powers provided by the U.S. courts.
