Busted tax lawyer offers free legal advice to cops to avoid rap: law-enforcement sources


Here’s some free legal advice for this “knucklehead” city tax lawyer: Don’t bribe cops!

BMW-driving attorney John Todorovich was busted for driving with a suspended license in Brooklyn last Thursday — then allegedly tried to bribe cops into letting him go by offering their entire precinct free legal tax and real-estate advice, law-enforcement sources said yesterday.

“He had to bribe the officer, then he had to bribe the officer and a sergeant, then he had to repeat the bribe to the cop with [the Internal Affairs Bureau] recording it. What a knucklehead,” said one police source of Todorovich, 60.

The tax and real-estate lawyer, who works in Times Square and lives in Westchester, was pulled over in Bushwick by Officer Joseph Curto, when he noticed Todorovich’s inspection sticker was expired, sources said.

Curto discovered that Todorovich’s license had been suspended eight times and was currently revoked, the sources said.

Todorovich was hauled into the 83rd Precinct station house in Bushwick, where he allegedly told Curto he was a lawyer and if Curto dropped “all the charges against him, he would provide free legal services to the officer and the other officers at the 83rd Precinct,” a law-enforcement source said.

Todorovich was caught on tape repeating the bribe, sources said.

The suspect’s own lawyer, Don Savatta, denied that any bribe was offered.

“The tape’s going to show that this is absolutely ridiculous,” he told The Post.

  1. Thanks for the information. I've gotten myself into a little bit of trouble with taxes and I'm researching the internet for the best course of action to take. I'm trying to see if it is possible to get myself out of trouble with some kind of tax preparer training, or if I need to hire a tax company to aid me.
