MY "CONNECTION" TO LUCKY LUCIANO
In this month's ABA Journal, there is an article on the 1936 trial of Lucky Luciano. Moses Polakoff, Luciano’s longtime attorney, worked on the case along with criminal counsel George Morton Levy.
In the early 1979-1980, I was an associate to Berman & Zivyak and next door to my office was Moses Polakoff. One of my duties as an associate, was to assist Mr. Polakoff on various matters.
And that's the extent of my connection to organized crime and Lucky Luciano. By the way, Mr. Polakoff would never discuss his representation of Luciano and, of course, I was forbidden to ask.
