The Rackets Division handled organized crime, criminal misconduct by public officials and police officials, gang-related activity, major fraud, arson, and more.

Raymond Joseph Zuppa was successful in breaking up one very big no-fault scam syndicate during Operation Gateway. This undertaking was a massive, long-term investigation that focused on Russian organized crime.

At Operation Gateway’s conclusion, more than 200 people were arrested.

In 2005, Raymond Joseph Zuppa founded The Zuppa Firm PLLC, in Brooklyn, New York. Some of the firm’s victories include Lexington Acupuncture, P.C. v. Geico Insurance Company (2007) and Brown v.

The Zuppa Firm PLLC also offers legal advice to the disadvantaged and supports causes that strengthen the socio-economic rights of consumers.
