Big Win for Attorney Jon Liroff
In May, GHM secured a sentence of probation for a client charged with federal campaign finance violations in front of US District Judge Sim Lake in Houston. Jon Liroff argued the case for the firm.
The government sought a statutory maximum term of imprisonment, but the court was persuaded that a “downward departure” under the federal guidelines was appropriate and sentenced the client to probation.
For Jon, who clerked for Judge Lake after law school, it was an honor to argue in front of his old boss. Jon joined our group in 2015 and has played an integral part in some of our most challenging cases. Before law school he investigated police misconduct for the City of New York and was a director in the Business Intelligence and Investigations practice at Kroll.
