Thank you for your concern regarding the DOL audits taking place in New Jersey and attending the seminar held in Edison, New Jersey.

CCRA-NJ is pleased to let you know that we have hired the lawyer who appeared, Andrew Berns from Einhorn Harris, to get involved in this issue.  He feels some sense of urgency and has filed a request and brief to intervene in a pending matter and plans vigorously represent our association.

I’m writing to ask for your financial support as Einhorn Harris is requesting a $25,000.00 retainer at this time.   CCRA-NJ has contributed the initial $5,000.00 towards this fee and we need to raise $20,000.00.  His hourly fee of $450.00 is not inexpensive, but we feel he is the best lawyer for the job.  After hearing him speak, I’m sure you feel the same way.  He has already spent a tremendous number of hours on this issue for CCRA-NJ at no cost

As a reporter or agency owner, you are aware of the difficulties and expenses you face if you are audited.  We need to join together to “protect our profession,” and I’m asking for your commitment of resources and time to join CCRA-NJ as we aggressively take action to stop the DOL’s ill-conceived extortion of our industry.

CCRA-NJ has set up a fund that will be used only to pay Mr. Berns and expenses associated with DOL issues.  I’m asking at a minimum for you to contribute the cost of one hour of his time, or even a half hour, so that we can resolve this issue in New Jersey once and for all. 

We are suggesting the following contributions payable in one lump sum or spread over several months.

  • Agency owners:  2 hours to 10 hours ($900.00 to $4,500.00)
  • Working Reporters Freelance:  .25  hour to 2 hours ($112.50 to $900.00)
  • Retired/New/Official Reporters: $25.00 to $450.00

I ask you to envision the sense of panic, sleepless nights and costs that will follow upon receiving the questionnaire.  I firmly believe that united we can get a favorable ruling in CCRA-NJ’s favor and forever put this issue behind us.
