In the background other customers can be heard calling him ‘ignorant’ and saying ‘yes, this is America’.
‘I will be following up because my guess is there not documented and my next call will be to ICE,’ Schlossberg says.
‘I will get each of them will be kicked out of my country.
‘I pay for their welfare, I pay for their ability to be here. The least they can do is speak English.’

The lawyer began his rant after seeing a lunchtime regular speaking Spanish with a Hispanic employee, the manager later explained.
‘They were speaking Spanish because they are friends,’ he said. ‘He got mad, waiting in line for his food.
‘He’s a customer, so I had to stay professional and ask him to leave. That’s what I did.’
NYU legal ethics professor Stephen Gillers said lawyers like Schlossberg can be disbarred
for conduct outside work, but predicted he would only receive a ‘private admonition’. ‘Mr. Schlossberg could be disciplined for this conduct but it will not lead to disbarment,’ Gillers told Forward.
‘A lawyer can be disciplined for conduct even if the conduct is unrelated to work for a client.
‘Factors a disciplinary committee will consider in deciding what if any discipline is warranted include extenuating circumstances and whether Mr. Schlossberg has prior discipline.
‘If he does not, I think the most serious discipline he could face would be a private admonition if he has a clean record. That means the discipline will not become public.’ Schlossberg attended the George Washington University Law School, according to his
LinkedIn, which noted he studied abroad in Madrid while at college.
As well as fluent Spanish, Schlossberg claims to be able to speak French, Hebrew and Mandarin Chinese.
