Donald Trump Jr.’s Lawyer Also Handled Mobsters

July 13, 2017

Donald Trump Jr. has hired a lawyer with experience representing mafia families.  This week Donald Trump Jr. confirmed he had hired Alan Futerfas, a criminal defense attorney, to represent him in matters relating to the Trump administration’s ties and collusion with Russia.

Futerfas’s law firm focuses on white-collar crime, and Futerfas has personally represented people with alleged ties to New York’s Bonanno, Gambino, Genovese, and Colombo crime families.  In one of his biggest cases from that period, Futerfas won a new trial in 1997 for mob captain Anthony Russo after it was revealed that a Federal Bureau of Investigation agent may have leaked information to fuel an organized crime war in the early 1990s.

Another client of Futerfas was Nikita Kuzmin, a Russian national who agreed last year to pay $6.9 million for creating computer malware that made users’ bank accounts vulnerable to cyber criminals.

Looks like Futerfas is a perfect fit for Trump Jr.
