A lawyer’s job hangs in the balance after charges in Molotov cocktail attack — but it can take less to get fired during off hours

An attorney at a large law firm is accused of participating in a Molotov cocktail attack on a New York City police vehicle Saturday night during protests over the death of George Floyd — and the lawyer now faces a federal case and hard scrutiny from his employer. Colinford Mattis was the alleged getaway driver in a firebombing on the unoccupied police vehicle, according to Brooklyn federal prosecutors. Police arrested Mattis, 32, and Urooj Rahman, 31, also a lawyer, who is suspected of throwing the Molotov cocktail.
