     The real estate company owned by [President/King] Jared Kushner, son-in-law and top adviser to [the puppet] President Donald Trump, has been the most aggressive in Maryland in using a controversial debt-collection tactic: getting judges to order the arrest of people who owe his company money.

Law firm demands $102G from Jared Kushner’s real estate company, claiming unpaid bills
https://www-nydailynews-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/www.nydailynews.com/amp/new-york/law-firm-demands-102g-jared-kushner-real-estate-company-article-1.3704780?amp_js_v=0.1#webview=1

President Trump’s son-in-law’s real estate company has a reputation of siccing lawyers on tenants who are late with the rent — but it doesn’t seem to pay its own bills on time.

A law firm that represented Jared Kushner’s real estate company in dozens of eviction and housing court cases is now suing the company, saying it is owed more than $100,000 for legal work from two years ago.

The law team Cornicello, Tendler & Baumel-Cornicello filed a lawsuit in Manhattan Supreme Court on Dec. 7 against Kushner Cos. and 19 of its subsidiaries that own or manage properties. Cornicello seeks $102,000 for work it did between December 2014 and May 31, 2015.

In 2014 and 2015, Cornicello represented Kushner properties in at least 32 landlord-tenant cases, mostly involving apartments in the East Village, records show.

Cornicello did not respond to a request for comment.

A spokeswoman for Kushner Cos. said, “We are working to resolve this matter.”

Kushner Cos. has amassed a large real estate empire in the city — one that includes the skyscraper at 666 Fifth Ave. and rental units in the East Village and Brooklyn Heights.

Jared Kushner stepped down as the company’s CEO in January to become a senior White House adviser to Trump. While he no longer runs the firm, he still owns it — and many of the beefs over the conditions of his apartments came while he was in charge.

Tenants have accused Kushner Cos. and its property manager, Westminster, in lawsuits and in other complaints of using harassment tactics — like loud construction and poor maintenance of properties — to get them to move out of rent-regulated apartments.
