Former Nevada Secretary of State Ross Miller a law firm partner
Michigan native Robert Buckhannon, facing up to 30 years in federal prison if convicted on multiple counts relating to a $34 million dollar hedge fund fraud case, just hired a new law firm.
The man whose former attorney, Dustin Marcello, claimed he had just "$300 in the bank", leaving him "broke with an expired passport" and lacking enough money to flee the country, recently replaced Marcello with Michael Cristalli and Vincent Savarese of the Summerlin, Nevada-based firm Gentile, Cristalli, Miller, Armeni & Savarese.
A "substitution of attorney" document filed in Nevada's U. S. District Court on June 22 reveals all parties involved agreed to the switch.
Buckhannon's new law firm was formed early March, and its practice focuses on business transactions, privileged licensing and disciplinary matters, commercial litigation, and the representation of individuals and entities involved in government investigations.
Dominic Gentile has forty-four years of experience as an advocate. He has represented clients nationwide and internationally and is regarded by his peers as a formidable force in the courtroom. He possesses unsurpassed expertise in the areas of civil, criminal, securities and commercial fraud investigations and litigation, free speech and press issues, as well as professional licensing and disciplinary matters. He teaches courses in evidence and trial advocacy at William S. Boyd School of Law.
Michael Cristalli is an accomplished trial attorney representing clients in complex criminal, as well as corporate and civil litigation matters. He is also currently an adjunct professor at the University of William S. Boyd School of Law and a legal analyst for MSNBC.
Ross Miller is a former two-term Nevada Secretary of State who also previously served as Clark County Deputy District Attorney. He is currently Vice President and General Counsel to Fine Entertainment Management and President of Silver Palms Group Consulting.
Guess some of that offshore money is paying those legal bills.
