Pen, Writing, Letter.In a guest column published Friday, Feb. 21, 2020, the authors claim that I (and other lawyers) “switched sides” from representing victims of sex abuse to representing their abusers. This is categorically untrue. At no time, ever, have I represented or would I ever represent my clients’ abusers in any way, shape or form. Indeed, not even the reported source of this claim says that I “switched sides” as implied by the headline and the column.

For many years I have represented victims of sex abuse by Jeffrey Epstein and his cohorts. In the course of doing so, last Fall I pursued a self-described “witness” who said he possessed Epstein videotapes of sexual abuse, including the abuse of some of my clients. Had this claim been true, and had I obtained the tapes, they would have destroyed the specious “he said, she said” defenses of predators; conclusively supported my clients’ claims of assault; and given them a measure of long-overdue justice. For that reason, I aggressively, and unapologetically, pursued the tapes for several weeks.
