1/5🛑Honest Lawyers?🛑
Hecht Partners founder David L. Hecht has had his honesty questioned. Hecht came from Pierce Bainbridge with John Pierce. PB was hired by Giuliani, Avenatti (felon), Dykstra (felon), Papadopoulos (felon, pardoned). Did JP set a bad example?

4/5 🛑Honest Lawyers?🛑
Hecht, the big boss of Hecht Partners, has had his own issues. An ex-associate said Hecht lied to a court, ex-clients said Hecht deceived them, a judge said Hecht ran afoul of the ethical rules. A one-pager about the Solid 21 case in tweet 1/4 is hmm...
5/5 🛑Honest Lawyers?🛑
John Pierce and David Hecht formerly of Pierce Bainbridge Beck Price & Hecht never did take over the legal world. Their firm cratered, even with Rudy Giuliani as a client. A 90-sec vid tells a clear story. Have yourself a looksee...
