Robert Costello and his firm, Davidoff Hutcher & Citron LLP, allege in the suit that the former New York City mayor owes them nearly $1.4 million. The lawsuit claims Costello and the firm represented Giuliani during criminal investigations by the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office, special counsel Jack Smith and during the U.S. House Jan. 6 committee’s investigation. … The lawsuit claims Giuliani has paid $214,000 of a $1,574,196.10 tab accrued since signing a retainer agreement with Costello in 2019. His most recent payment was $10,000 on Sept. 14, according to the suit.” (09/18/23)
