Summary

John is listed in "Who's Who in America", and is a regular guest commentator in print, tv , and radio on law and politics including MSNBC, CNN, & FOX.

John is a former federal prosecutor from the Southern District of NY who handled widely publicized criminal investigations and prosecutions that ran the gamut from securities fraud to a mob prison break, the bribery of Congressman Dan Flood by a rabbi, the federally funded summer feeding scandal in the South Bronx, and heroin-trafficking by major organized crime figures including "Matty" Madonna.

In private practice at the mid-town Manhattan law firm of Poletti Friedin Prashker Feldman & Gartner (founded by FDR Jr.), John represented all the airlines in the Air Traffic Controllers Strike in 1981, and negotiated a settlement for the Airlines amounting to $28,869,000.00.

John served twice on Capitol Hill. On the Senate side as Special Counsel to the U. S. Senate Judiciary Committee (appointed by Chairman Strom Thurmond) to investigate Quadaffi's efforts to subvert American foreign policy), and then as Special Counsel to the U.S. Senate Labor Committee (appointed by Chairman Orrin Hatch to investigate the confirmation hearings of former Labor Secretary Raymond Donovan).

On the House side, John served again as Special Counsel, investigating the mob's influence in the Laborers International Union. His most challenging assignment on the Hill, however, was his work on the historic Impeachment proceedings of President William Jefferson Clinton (for the democratic minority).

John's criminal defense and appellate practice, at the federal and state level, focused on white collar cases (but not exclusively).

John's civil practice includes complex fraud and contract litigation involving labor, land use, employment, contract, corporate entities (whether it's formation, or dissolution), buiness hi-tech, IP, Sarbanes Oxley, and a general civil practice

The official title of the address was - “In the Belly of the Beast" - basically a look at the Trump debacle. I was honored to join earlier lecture guest honorees including Martha Raddatz, Richard Wolffe, Chris Hayes, Steve & Cokie Roberts, Judy Woodruff, Chuck Todd, Peter Baker, Eleanor Clift, Chris Matthews, Michelle Bernard, and Marvin & Bernard Kalb. It was a mixed media presentation. This is the audio portion of the presentation - and runs about 1 hour 40 minutes. Alan White, the Event Coordinator and his Staff provided this wonderful opportunity. I do believe information is the inoculation into the body politic that will finally cure this constitutional crisis. The format allowed coverage of several subjects of general concern. John P.
