Attorney Ian N. Friedman recently talked to television news station
WKYC Channel 3 News about a search conducted at the law firm where one of his clients, Gregory
Moore, used to work. The news station reported that the law firm's
downtown Cleveland office had been searched by the FBI Violent Crime Task
Force and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, with the assistance
of the state's Cyber Crimes Unit.
It has been speculated that the investigation was held in connection to
Attorney Friedman's client, who served as the divorce attorney for
Aliza Sherman, a woman who was stabbed to death in March 2013 near the
building where the firm's office is located.
Attorney Friedman told WKYC that he and his client found out about the
search after it occurred, and that Mr. Moore is not currently practicing
law so that he can deal with some of his own legal matters.
Attorney Friedman spoke to WKYC on behalf of his client, stating that it
is unclear at this time what the government was searching for and why
they were searching for it. He said he and his client do not know yet
whether the search was related to Ms. Sherman's death, whether it
was related to Mr. Moore's own legal matters, or whether it had to
with something else.
The defense lawyer also noted that he and his client are glad that the
authorities are looking into whatever they deem worthy of a search. With
that, he added a reminder that his client has clearly denied any involvement
with Ms. Sherman's
murder and that the evidence should support that.
With nearly two decades of legal experience behind him, Attorney Friedman
is a highly skilled
criminal defense attorney who built a strong track record of repeated dismissals, acquittals
and verdict reversals.
