The National Law Journal has named New York partner Carrie Cohen and San Francisco partner Arturo González to its list of 2016 Litigation Trailblazers.
Carrie was lead prosecutor in U.S. v. Sheldon Silver, a case that led to Silver’s 12 year conviction, $5 million in forfeiture, and a $1.76 million fine. While at the U.S. attorney’s office, Carrie also won two substantial fraud cases, including an $80 million Ponzi scheme and a $30 million fraud scheme.
Arturo’s civil rights practice has seen record wins against law enforcement, including the largest award for a police shooting in California’s history and an unprecedented win for a body cavity strip search case.
Now in its third edition, NLJ’s annual Litigation Trailblazers series honors lawyers who “have moved the needle with innovative legal strategies.”
