Alfredo Gonzalez, who briefly served as CEO of Yoss LLP before the law firm’s collapse last month, has joined the Miami firm Genovese Joblove & Battista as a partner. Gonzalez, a real estate attorney at the firm for 24 years, is believed to be the last Yoss lawyer to land a job. Former managing partner George Yoss is staying behind for several months at the request of the firm’s bank to wrap up its affairs, according to the firm’s former spokeswoman. Sources say 70 percent of the firm’s staff have landed jobs. Two other Yoss lawyers, former equity partner Jay Blumenkopf and contract attorney Julie Cloney, opened a Boca Raton office for the national minority-owned law firm Gonzalez Saggio Harlan. Another former Yoss equity partner, John Koenig, 53, died last week in his sleep. Koenig and fellow Yoss partner Mitchell Dinkin formed Boynton Beach-based Koenig & Dinkin shortly before the shutdown. A memorial service will be held 3:30 p.m. May 6 at St. Juliana Catholic Church in West Palm Beach. Once a national firm with 250 attorneys, Yoss collapsed after a long downward spiral following the law license suspension of co-founder Henry “Hank” Adorno.
