Reuters - December 30, 2008 / In Reversal of Mission... Criminal Defense Attorney Guy Fronstin Forms Diversified and Integrated National "Dream Team" to Aid Madoff Victims

In Reversal of Mission... Criminal Defense Attorney Guy Fronstin Forms Diversified and Integrated National "Dream Team" to Aid Madoff Victims

Within hours of Bernard Madoff's arrest, Florida-based attorney Guy Fronstin, Esq., of the Law Offices of Guy Fronstin, P.A., received more than a dozen calls from friends and family who were heavily invested with Madoff and severely victimized by his Ponzi scheme. When investors told Mr. Fronstin they were "overwhelmed, depressed, not thinking clearly, and had no idea who to turn to for legal guidance in response to the effect of the Madoff fraud," it quickly became clear to Fronstin that investors needed assistance at many levels from emotional support to expert legal, tax, and insurance counsel.

Recognizing that one person or counselor could not provide the competent specialized advice and counsel for all the areas needed, Fronstin determined that a diversified and integrated team approach was required to effectively respond to the Madoff crisis. After thoroughly studying the situation, Fronstin established a "dream team" of experts from around the country to assure that investors are not victimized further and seek possible ways in which to recoup some of their financial losses.

Michelle Ball, a Madoff investor from New York, referred to Mr. Fronstin as a "quarterback" who "does not charge for his role of coordinating all the parties and orchestrating a highly sophisticated and unprecedented strategy and response to this Ponzi Scheme."

"While a specific strategy will not be implemented until more information about the crime is revealed, investors have found tremendous immediate relief knowing they are receiving accurate information, literally as the investigation unfolds, and that they have a team of experts pursuing every angle to assure they will receive the greatest possible recovery," noted Fronstin.

Fronstin added that "upon his establishment of the 'dream team' approach, investors have felt much better since they no longer had to spend every hour stressing over how to handle this situation, much less trying to figure out where to even start their recovery mission."

Some of the areas Mr. Fronstin and his Dream Team address are:

1. Legal tax advice by accounting experts to advise on amending tax returns and filing future year tax returns.
2. Applications for assuring the greatest return on SIPC claims.
3. Protection against claw-back lawsuits and redemption lawsuits.
4. Insurance counsel and review by industry expert of investor's insurance policies to determine if any coverage exists, such as with homeowner's insurance, as well as ways in which to recoup portfolio losses through other forms of insurance.
5. Support of legislative allies at Federal and State levels to assist in legislation and IRS policies helpful to Madoff victims.
6. Knowledge and support of counsel from where the investor resides to address interests specific to the investor's home state as well as NY counsel familiar with New York state laws where Madoff's business is located and the investigation is underway.
7. Accurate and timely information provided to the investors by individuals close to the investigation.
8. Counsel of bankruptcy experts to monitor the Madoff bankruptcy proceedings.
9. Support of psychiatrists and psychologists to address the emotional trauma investors are experiencing.
10. Expertise of philanthropy counsel provided to handle the substantial charitable commitments investors previously made, but can no longer fulfill.
11. Counsel by plaintiff's attorneys to evaluate investors' individual situations, determine what claims each investor has, and then proceed with lawsuit(s) filings.
12. Counsel and strategy provided by criminal prosecution representation to assure Madoff is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law in every possible jurisdiction and that restitution is required as part of any sentence.

Fronstin promises "the team will be extremely pro-active and aggressive in recovering as much as possible for investors."

Mr. Fronstin promises "the team will be extremely pro-active and aggressive in recovering as much as possible for investors."

Police: Husband was likely target in Boca Slaying

The unknown gunman who killed a chiropractor's wife as she returned from a trip to an upscale mall was likely targeting the woman's husband because he frequented prostitutes in crime-ridden neighborhoods, authorities said Friday. Gorenberg's attorney, Guy Fronstin, countered that his Client was never involved with any prostitutes and the allegations are totally false. It is unconscionable that PBSO detectives are treating a victim this way. Unfortunately, detectives have no leads and their statement is a desperate and misguided attempt to create a lead, attorney Guy Fronstin said.

Sun-Sentinel - October 30, 2008 / Murdered Palm Beach County Woman's Husband Won't Face Felony Fraud Charges, By Brian Haas

Murdered Palm Beach County Woman's Husband Won't Face Felony Fraud Charges

The husband of murder victim Randi Gorenberg pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of petty theft and will not face felonies accusing him of insurance fraud.

Stewart Gorenberg, 53, a chiropractor who lives west of Boca Raton, was accused of double-billing insurance companies in 2005. His attorney on Wednesday blamed the charges on detectives' zeal in investigating his wife's murder.

Randi Gorenberg, 52, was found dead March 23,2007, in a park west of Delray Beach. She was last seen alive at Town Center at Boca Raton. The case remains unsolved.

The Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office declined to comment on the allegations made by Stewart Gorenberg's attorney regarding the insurance case.

Spokeswoman Teri Barbera said the agency still needs the public's help in identifying two men who used Randi Gorenberg's credit card number Aug. 12 to make $1,000 in purchases in Massachusetts and Connecticut.

Stewart Gorenberg has since closed his practice in Fort Lauderdale. According to his arrest report, in 2005 he had billed the same medical claim to a health insurance company and an automobile insurance company.

His attorney, Guy Fronstin, praised detectives for their work on the murder case but said the fraud charges arose from a mistaken focus on Stewart Gorenberg as an early suspect.

Detectives and Fronstin have said Stewart Gorenberg is no longer a suspect in his wife's murder.

Stewart Gorenberg pleaded no contest to the petty theft charge on Oct. 17, according to Broward County court records. The judge withheld adjudication, meaning Gorenberg will have no criminal record, and sentenced him to time served in jail and $392 in court costs.

October 29, 2008 / Insurance fraud charges dropped against Dr. Stewart Gorenberg

Insurance fraud charges dropped against Dr. Stewart Gorenberg

Dr. Stewart Gorenberg's wife, Randi Gorenberg was murdered after shopping at the Town Center Mall in Boca Raton, Florida (March 2007).

According to Dr. Gorenberg's attorney, Guy Fronstin, "immediately after Randi Gorenberg's murder, Detectives mistakenly focused their investigation on Randi's husband." As a result, "the Detectives were determined to pressure Dr. Gorenberg and therefore in 2007 they asked the Broward State Attorney's Office to pursue criminal charges for a 2005 insurance billing matter previously investigated and civilly resolved without any finding of wrongdoing on Dr. Gorenberg's part" said Fronstin.

Nevertheless, Dr. Gorenberg was arrested and charged with two counts of insurance fraud. Fronstin states that "Dr. Gorenberg appreciates that the prosecutor who handled the case permitted Fronstin to present exculpatory evidence and took the time to understand the case and recognize that the pending charges were not just."

In explaining how the alleged insurance fraud case was resolved, Fronstin stated "the facts clearly establish Dr. Gorenberg's innocence beyond any doubt. In order to bring the matter to conclusion, Dr. Gorenberg agreed to plea no contest and in return the State dismissed one count of insurance fraud and dropped the other to misdemeanor petit theft." According to Fronstin, "Dr. Gorenberg was not convicted of anything and only has to pay $397.00 in court costs. This outcome unequivocally vindicates Dr. Gorenberg of the false allegations."

Palm Beach Posst - September 27, 2008 / Gorenberg's Husband Discovered Credit Card Charges, Attorney Says, By Christina Denardo

Gorenberg's Husband Discovered Credit Card Charges

The attorney representing the husband of a slain Boca Raton woman said that Stewart Gorenberg provided authorities with the newest lead in his wife's unsolved murder.

The Broward chiropractor was reviewing a credit card statement and noticed charge credit card 17 months after she was killed, according to his lawyer, Guy Fronstin.

Randi Gorenberg, 52, was shot in the head and shoved from her Mercedes-Benz sports utility vehicle in Delray Beach in March 2007. Her Kooba purse and Puma sneakers have never been found. The murder happened about 40 minutes after she finished shopping at the Town Center Mall in Boca Raton.

The Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office on Friday released photos of the men accused of using Gorenberg's credit card number in Massachusetts and Connecticut. One of the men wore blue jeans and a black T-shirt. The other wore jeans and a multi-colored shirt with a black ball cap.

They don't know who the men are, or whether they had Gorenberg's card or had stolen clone of it.

The Sheriffs Office said the men purchased two portable Playstation hand-held game systems from a Sears at the Holyoke Mall, Holyoke, Mass., north of Springfield on Aug. 12. The men also purchased food in Springfield and a Playstation 3 from a Toys R Us in Newington, Conn.

Frostin said the family left Gorenberg's credit card accounts open in case someone used them. As a former prosecutor, Frostin said criminals would often steal credit cards or clone them and wait months before using them. But he added that the card could have been sold and then re-sold and there is no certainty the men had anything to do with Gorenberg's murder.

"It could be totally irrelevant," he said. "But this is a little something for them to hold onto. The person who did this did not leave a lot of evidence.

Police also believe there may be a connection between Gorenberg's murder, an August 2007 attack during which a mother and her son were carjacked in the Nordstrom parking garage of the mall and the December murders of Nancy Bochicchio and her 7-year-old daughter, Joey.

Gorenberg family provides lead to authorities regarding fraudulent use of murder victim Randi Gorenberg's credit card

According to Guy Fronstin, the Gorenberg's attorney, "While reviewing a credit card statement, Dr. Gorenberg noticed charges made on his wife's credit card after she was murdered." "Dr. Gorenberg brought this information to me and I immediately provided the lead to the PBSO Detectives working Randi's murder investigation," said Fronstin. Although the investigation into the compromised credit card is in its early stages, Fronstin says "the Gorenberg's remain extremely hopeful that the lead they provided is the break Detectives need to find the monster responsible for Randy's murder."

Four of six Boca Raton teens accept plea deal in sexual assault case

Four of six West Boca teens involved in an alcohol-fueled New Year's Day sexual assault on two girls pleaded guilty Tuesday to reduced charges, sparing them felony convictions. In exchange for guilty pleas to lesser a charge of felony battery, prosecutors dismissed charges of sexual battery on a helpless person and lewd and lascivious battery. The Judge also agreed to withhold adjudication so long as the teens successfully complete their probation which means they will not have a conviction on their record if they do what the judge ordered. One of the defendant's Attorney, Guy Fronstin, declined to comment on the issue of consent. Fronstin said It is an important question, but I'd rather not address it. It's a very emotional issue for all involved.

Fort Lauderdale Fla. March 10, 2008

Another family member of Randi Gorenberg, the woman mysteriously slain last year after she left Town Center mall in Boca Raton, has been arrested. Her husband, Stewart Gorenberg, 53, was taken into custody Wednesday at his Fort Lauderdale chiropractor office on two insurance fraud charges. He was released the same day from Broward County Jail after posting a $2,000 bail.

His practice is accused by the Florida Department of Financial Services of billing private insurance twice for patients who weren't seen on the days they were billed for, said Guy Fronstin, Gorenberg's attorney. Gorrenberg's arrest comes less than a month after his son pleaded guilty to illegally trying to buy prescription drugs.

Daniel Gorenberg, 25, was sentenced to three years of drug offender probation and is required to enroll in a residential drug treatment program in Ocala that can take up to two years to complete. He suffered from a drug addiction that was exacerbated by his mother's murder, Fronstin said.

Randi Gorenberg, 52, was shot to death on March 23 and dumped on a road behind a civic center west of Delray Beach. Investigators are looking at whether her killing is related to the Dec. 12 murders of Nancy Bochicchio and her daughter, Joey, who were found at the Town Center mall, and the Aug. 7 abduction and robbery of a woman and her son at the mall. Stewart and Daniel Gorenberg were not suspects in Randi Gorenberg's murder, Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office investigators have said. But the same detectives have added that the father and son were unwilling to answer many questions in the early days of the investigation.

Fronstin said they talked to detectives three times within a week of the slaying. Daniel Gorenberg also spoke to investigators in November and Stewart Gorenberg talked to them three or four times in recent months, Fronstin said. Stewart Gorenberg will fight insurance fraud charges, Fronstin said. His practice has paperwork showing the two patients were treated on the same days and the billing was done properly. The charges against Stewart Gorenberg come as the murders tied to Town Center mall have gained renewed local and national prominence.

In January, Boca Raton police and the Sheriff's Office created a joint task force to investigate leads and, work on the cases.

Last month, the TV show America's Most Wanted came to the Boca Raton area to produce a segment on the Gorenberg and Bochicchio murders and the August crime at the Town Center.

America's Most Wanted host John Walsh said he believed a serial killer was responsible, but authorities have stopped short of making the same statement.

Palm Beach Post - March 6, 2008 / Husband of Slain Woman Arrested, By Michael LaForgia

Husband of Slain Woman Arrested

The husband of a woman who was shot to death and dumped in a park west of Delray Beach last March was arrested Wednesday on insurance fraud charges at his Fort Lauderdale office.

As detectives struggled with solving the murder of Randi Gorenberg, 52, during the past year, Broward County fraud investigators began looking into the chiropractic practice ruby her husband, Stewart Gorenberg.

On the afternoon of March 23, Randi Gorenberg was shot in the head and pushed from the back of her black Mercedes-Benz sport utility vehicle near Jog and Morikami Park roads, 39 minutes after leaving the Town Center Mall in Boca Raton.

After the slaying, detectives said her husband's lack of cooperation - he went weeks without sitting for a formal interview with authorities - was harming the investigation.

Guy Fronstin, Gorenberg's West Palm Beach attorney, said the Broward fraud investigation arose from detectives' efforts to compel his client's cooperation.

"This entire investigation was created as a result of the sheriff's office putting pressure on Dr. Gorenberg immediately after Randi was murdered," Fronstin said. "The detectives told us at the beginning of the murder investigation that they were going to turn his life inside out."

Palm Beach County Sheriffs Officials denied involvement in the fraud probe.

"It is our understanding that, prior to Randi Gorenberg's murder, there was an investigation being conducted by law enforcement authorities in Broward County," said Paul Miller, sheriffs office spokesman. "We did not initiate this investigation."

Eventually, Stewart Gorenberg did meet with detectives, but the Broward probe continued.

The chiropractor, whose office stands on Andrews Avenue in Fort Lauderdale, billed two clients for visits that never occurred, Broward authorities said.

He was arrested at work Wednesday morning and taken to the Broward County Jail, where he was released on $2,000 bail. "We will present evidence that will completely prove that those allegations are false," Fronstin said.

Gorenberg's arrest was only the latest legal problem for the grieving family. Since Randi Gorenberg was killed, her son, Daniel Gorenberg, 25, has been arrested on prescription drug charges on a handful of occasions. On Feb. 15, he pleaded guilty to obtaining prescription drugs by fraud and agreed to enter a treatment program.

"It's a horrible time for Dr. Gorenberg now as you can imagine," Fronstin said. "His son is getting treatment and trying to turn his life around, and then they hit him with this."

As the anniversary of Randi Gorenberg's death approaches, her case is getting a fresh look because of its similarities to another sensational crime with links to the Town Center mall.

On Dec. 13, Nancy Bochicchio, 47, and her daughter, Joey Bochicchio-Hauser, 7, were found bound and shot to death in an idling SUV in the shopping center parking lot.

Similarities between the murders -in both instances, the victims left the mall through the same exit and got into black 2007 SUV s with dark, tinted windows -have prompted the sheriffs office and Boca Raton police to form a joint investigative task force to probe the killings.
