Litigators Joseph DeMaria and David Turken, formerly of the defunct Tew Cardenas, have been hired by Fox Rothschild as a partner and associate, respectively, in the firm’s Miami office.

DeMaria is a former trial attorney for the Justice Department’s organized crime and racketeering section and serves as an adjunct professor at the University of Miami School of Law and on the Florida Bar’s federal practice committee.

Turken previously served as a felony prosecutor in the Miami-Dade state attorney’s office.

Miami-based Tew Cardenas folded April 1 following the death of co-founder Thomas Tew.

Philadelphia-based Fox Rothschild has nearly 600 attorneys in 19 offices. The firm launched its Miami office a year ago with former Coral Gables Mayor Raul J. Valdes-Fauli.
