Cybercrime Attorney Jay Leiderman
‘Find the best defense attorney you can’ was the title of an article in the Columbia Journalism Review discussing the best lawyers to hire in a case involving cybercrime. The author wrote: “”Hackers being prosecuted under the CFAA don’t just need digital experts; they need good defense against a law vague enough to encompass most anything.” I was humbled yet delighted to be included in the small group of attorneys qualified and recommended to handle such complex and high-profile cases.
Another part of the article said: “Leiderman took a slightly more deliberate path. His first CFAA client was Commander X, an Anonymous-affiliated hacker—a job Leiderman retained by suggesting it on Twitter. It “sort of got picked up,” he says. “Once I represented X, he thrust me into the rest of it,” says Leiderman, “X’s opinion was — ‘Oh, you’re not just my lawyer. You’re the lawyer for Anonymous; you’re the lawyer for every hacker that ever lived.’”
