Michael Cohen’s in-laws, Fima and Ania Shusterman, have put three apartments in Trump World Tower on the market for a cumulative $11.2 million.

The Shustermans’ decision to sell the properties they acquired between 2003 and 2005 comes as Cohen, who is under investigation by federal authorities, has been embroiled in costly legal proceedings since the FBI raided his office in April and is currently looking to hire a criminal defense lawyer, according to Bloomberg.

According to an unnamed source speaking to Bloomberg, the Shustermans are in a hurry to sell and phone agents handling their listings often.

Trump International Realty is featuring the listings for two of the apartments and agent Etienne Lafaye is pictured on the company website as the designated contact. The third unit is not on the website, though Bloomberg’s sources confirm it is also for sale.

Fima Shusterman introduced Cohen to the taxi medallion business and shared his network of contacts with his son-in-law, according to an investigation by the New York Times.

As of last month, New York State had issued Cohen warrants for a total of $282,000 in taxes for 16 of his taxi-medallion companies. In February, The Real Deal‘s investigation identified 17 of Cohen’s companies that held at least 34 medallions. [Bloomberg]Erin Hudson
