2/3 John Pierce lots of abandonment. He had ~70 attorneys in September. Almost all quit. Pierce appears to have done a very poor job. See more about his firm & Giuliani at my pinned tweet. For new ppl, this video by @sulkess is a 🔥great primer.🔥
3/3 Pierce Bainbridge won 1 trial in 3+years. Racked up a reported $70M debt. Clients included convicted felons and folks w/ ties to money laundering. Pierce talked a big game -- "Next Generation of Litigation" -- "Most Elite Litigators on the Planet." Yet, Lots of Failure.

1/2 Puzzling.

Kyle Rittenhouse & Giuliani hired lawyer John Pierce.

Chatter re: "high-end" & "SEAL Team."

Yet, I can't seem to find a Pierce Bainbridge bio for Pierce or any of his "associates."

Seems kinda bootleg.

Are basic firm web services covered by #Fightback funds?

The so-called "Next Generation of Litigation Excellence" has 1 trial win in 3+ yrs, net verdict of $500K.

PB had more convicted felon clients than trial wins.

PB has a debt in the tens of millions of dollars.

Attorneys quit en masse.


3/3 Perhaps these Pierce Bainbridge 💎gems💎will help Rittenhouse #Fightback

"army of killers"
"skin made of kevlar w/ titanium at times"
"built a better mousetrap"
"cracked the code to the digital age"
"happy warriors"

Yet, ~60 "happy warriors" quit - these guys 👇 seem angry
