The rupture is complete: Younger out at law firm
It appears that all hope of Milt Younger returning to the slip-and-fall plaintiff's law firm he helped found is over. If you remember, Milt's nephew Dave Cohn (pictured)took over Chain-Younger when Milt "retired" a few months ago. Then Milt, whose outsized ego is legendary, decided to return to active law (despite some health issues) with his old partner of Tim Lemucchi and launched a series of TV commercials. Meanwhile, word on the street was that Milt, who is 78, was thinking of returning to Chain-Younger (or asking to) but that didn't happen. Instead, Cohn and his partners moved on and today launched a series of new TV spots branding the firm "Chain, Cohn and Stiles," a final blow to any chance Milt might reunite with the old firm.
