“For those who regard the United States attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York as a model of what a prosecutor’s office should be, it was distressing to see the former leader of that office, Rudolph Giuliani, telling Sean Hannity that F.B.I. agents acting under the supervision of that office were ‘storm troopers.’

Serving as an Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York under John Martin with my collegues is one of the high points of my professional and personal life, and inspired me with confidence, independence, and fearlessness to do justice and not just practice law. Thank you, John.
