Queens lawyer’s death probed as homicide after body found beaten in office

A lawyer was found dead at his Queens office Thursday morning, and cops are investigating the death as a homicide, police said. 

The dead man, who worked at 37-06 82nd Avenue in Jackson Heights, was found lying face up in a second-floor office by a custodian around 5:50 a.m., cops said.

Another tenant in the building, who asked to remain anonymous out of fear for his safety, said the lawyer had been threatened recently by two clients.

“Some clients of his threatened him and then they came back and did the deed last night,” the tenant said, adding that security cameras at the building caught the duo there Wednesday night.

The slain lawyer was found with injuries to his face, torso and chest, police said.

His name wasn’t immediately released and police didn’t release further details.

He was known for doing real estate litigation and divorce work, the tenant said.

Police sources said the death was being investigated as a homicide. The city’s medical examiner will determine the cause of death.

There are several other law and financial offices in the building.
