As Cassidy Hutchinson, a former top aide to Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, prepared to deliver explosive testimony to the House Jan. 6 select committee, she relied on two Alston & Bird lawyers, one of whom had his own experience navigating the tumult of the Trump administration.

Jody Hunt and William Jordan, both lawyers in the litigation department at Alston & Bird and former officials at the U.S. Justice Department, represented Hutchinson as she revealed dramatic new details about the White House’s awareness of the potential for violence at the Capitol, and the determination of former President Donald Trump to join his supporters who ultimately stormed the building.
