Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) June 18, 2014
Lerman Law Firm, client of top Florida public relations agency Red Banyan Group, was prominently featured on ABC’s Nightline yesterday in a special edition focused on the latest developments involving alleged Ponzi schemer Ephren Taylor. Lerman Law Firm Founder Cathy Lerman appeared in the investigative piece commenting about her firm’s class action lawsuit (Case No.CV12 03322) against Taylor in Los Angeles Federal District Court on behalf of the hundreds of victims he allegedly defrauded.*
Taylor was arrested Tuesday on a federal indictment by the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia Atlanta Division charging him and a co-defendant with defrauding investors across the country of more than $5 million.** Yesterday’s three-part Nightline segment covered this breaking development, as well as the news program’s two-year investigation into Taylor’s Ponzi schemes.
“This is one of the happiest days of my life,” Lerman said in the Nightline interview. “This day means a lot to me. It means even more to my clients who are the victims, and it is the answer to prayers by all of us that justice be done.”
Red Banyan Group Founder and Principal Evan Nierman said: “On a personal level, the work on this case has been incredibly rewarding for my team and me. Red Banyan Group was retained to expose facts that were previously hidden from the public, to ensure that the victims had an opportunity to tell their stories, and to help prevent others from suffering the same fate. Above all at Red Banyan Group, we fight for the truth. I am both deeply humbled and eternally thankful for the opportunity we have had to assist our clients and help them pursue justice.”
