The Washington Post quoted partner Julian Solotorovsky in an article, “Blagojevich Trial Will Be Key Performance for Ex-Governor.” The article focused on the trial of impeached Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich who has been charged with fraud, conspiracy, bribery and racketeering. He commented on Blagojevich's multiple public appearances, such as on "Celebrity Apprentice" and The Second City comedy stage.
“‘This is definitely a strategy, to go out there and make yourself a part of the headlines,’ said Julian Solotorovsky, a white-collar defense lawyer and former prosecutor. ‘It’s a calculated risk. They’re hoping to find one of the 12 jurors to say that this man has been persecuted rather than prosecuted and that what he’s doing is no different from what every other Illinois politician does.’”
