Days Of Our Lives: Another Day, Another New Attorney – 27 Lawyers Now for Defense

This is starting to look more and more like the circus act where all the clowns come pouring out of the little car in the center ring.

How in the hell did they all get in there, right?

Well, believe it or not, we have yet another attorney who has filed a “Notice Of Appearance” in the case of the U.S. v. Raniere Et Al.

This time it’s Tina Glandian from the New York City office of the Geragos & Geragos law firm.

That makes it 27 lawyers involved in the Nxivm case – 10 of them for Seagram heiress Clare Bronfman.

Glandian has been with the Geragos and Geragos law firm since 2005 – and, in fact, is the one who opened the firm’s New York City office and now manages it.

Her notable clients include pop singers Chris Brown and Ke$ha, former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, and Ice-Cube’s 3-on-3 basketball league.

In addition to being licensed to practice law in several states, Glandian is also a licensed real estate broker in California. That might come in handy if Clare Bronfman decides to pay some of her legal bills by selling off some of the millions of dollars of unreported real estate that she owns there.

According to her bio on the law firm website:

“Ms. Glandian successfully prevented the dismissal of a lawsuit against Duke University by the parents of a student who drowned during a Duke study abroad program in Costa Rica, following her oral argument of the case to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in Thackurdeen v. Duke Univ., 15-3082-cv (2d Cir. 2016).  Ms. Glandian also served as the lead appellate attorney on the Michael Jackson v. XtraJet, et al. case, which arose from the illegal wiretapping of Jackson and his attorneys on a private jet.  After she orally argued the case before Division Three of the Second Appellate District in the Court of Appeal of the State of California, the case settled for $2.5 million.  Ms. Glandian currently serves on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the In re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434, pending in the Southern District of New York, against Bayer Pharmaceuticals arising from product defects related to the intrauterine device Mirena®.

“Ms. Glandian has been selected as a Southern California Rising Star by Super Lawyers magazine from 2012-2019.  Ms. Glandian has also spoken on a number of panels including alongside legal giant F. Lee Bailey at the National Trial Lawyer’s Summit in Miami, Florida.”

  • Clare is just doing what she’s always done: Buy her way out of anything. Unfortunately for her, this time it may not work. But that doesn’t stop her from trying. I just hope this case gets national and international media attention with the addition of these celebrity lawyers. I don’t think that will be good for the defense, though – as they think it might help. I think it will blacken and smear all of their names.

  • Does anybody see a single successful criminal defense anywhere in that list?

  • I’m sure Tina was hired for her ASSets. She must provide TITillating insight from her expansive legal career. Never used in a case to distract horny old judges. Not at all.

    She has quite a resume and an educational background that rivals Vanguard. She graduated from UCSD and Loyola Law. Wow. No doubt she does her best work on her BACKbriefs.

  • Clare Bronfman has as many attorneys as Keith Raniere and Allison Mack put together!!!!!!

    Saint Clare Bronfman, Patron Saint of Criminal Defense Attorneys.

    • At least one of the lawyers must be assigned to keep track of all of the other lawyers on the case, it may as well be the one paying for everybody elses’ lawyers.

  • From the list of lawyers, it appears Clare’s primary goal is to protect herself, no? She has twice as many attorneys as her vanguard.
