Jaroslaw Quoted in Law360 About Trump Attorney-Conspirators

EKL&J Partner Ilene Jaroslaw was interviewed by Law360 on what’s next for the as-yet unindicted co-conspirators in the January 6 insurrection and why attorney-conspirators’ communications with the former president are admissible at trial:

“While attorney-client privilege broadly works to keep communications between lawyers and their clients private, the crime-fraud exception to that privilege ensures that communications between a lawyer and client that are in furtherance of a crime or fraud do not remain shrouded in secrecy.

“Ilene Jaroslaw, a white collar defense attorney at Elliott Kwok Levine & Jaroslaw LLP and a former assistant U.S. attorney in the Eastern District of New York, told Law360, ‘This is a textbook crime-fraud case.’

“‘There is no question that special counsel Jack Smith and his team have the communications between Trump and these five attorneys. These five attorney conspirators will be indicted. It is only a matter of time.'”
