Former Manhattan federal judge and current Bracewell partner Barbara Jones was appointed the special master to review the material seized from the offices and home of Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, by U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood of the Southern District of New York Thursday.

Jones served in the Southern District as a district judge from 1995 to her retirement in 2013. She previously served as a federal and state prosecutor in Manhattan. She handles white-collar matters for the firm, and she, along with a representative for Bracewell, could not immediately be reached for comment.
