Ferriero law firm says FBI search was unrelated to firm business

The law firm where Bergen County Democratic Chairman Joseph Ferriero is a partner issued a statement today saying that the FBI search warrant was for Ferriero’s personal files and unrelated to his position at Scarinci & Hollenbeck.

“Today representatives of the Federal Bureau of Investigation arrived in order to execute a search warrant seeking to search the private office of Joseph Ferriero for records relating to Mr. Ferriero as an individual and not related to his position at Scarinci Hollenbeck,” said Lawrence H. Kraft of Scarinci & Hollenbeck. “The search warrant did not seek any records concerning Scarinci Hollenbeck, its business or its clients. Our office fully cooperated with the officers executing the warrant. We are satisfied that the focus of the investigation does not involve Scarinci Hollenbeck or any services Mr. Ferriero may have performed on behalf of Scarinci Hollenbeck.”
