White-collar Defense partner Michael Shapiro was quoted on on March 3, 2009 in the article "Madoff Seeks to Keep Millions; Court Appearance Coming Up." Madoff's attorney filed papers arguing that the $7 million apartment, along with $62 million in additional assets, belonged to Madoff's wife, Ruth. Mr. Shapiro, who represents several former Madoff clients, disputed the assertion. "My question is where did she obtain the money to acquire these assets. Is she too a genius of Wall Street?" Mr. Shapiro stated he expects that after an examination of all of Madoff's assets, it will be determined that all of the couple's property will be found to have been derived "from assets traceable to Mr. Madoff."
