His father is firm co-founder Jonathan Schiller, according to Bloomberg.
What Joshua Schiller’s attorney says
Schiller’s lawyer, Douglas Horngrad, said he expects the case to be dropped.“This was a misunderstanding and both Mr. and Mrs. Schiller have made clear to me that he did not physically harm her,” Horngrad said. “There was no instance of domestic violence.”
Horngrad’s office also released a statement by the couple: “This is a private matter between us. We love and respect each other. We are partners and will move beyond this together.” The American Lawyer, an industry publication, reported a statement by Schiller’s firm.
“The firm has been made aware of recent events related to our partner, Josh Schiller,” the statement said. “While we have been informed by him and his wife that this was a misunderstanding, the firm will be conducting its own review to better understand what happened. While that review is ongoing, Josh has asked for a leave of absence to focus on his family, and we have agreed to give him this time.”
