Michael Jackson’s Doctor Charged with Involuntary Manslaughter, Assembles Legal Team
Leading the defense team is Ed Chernoff, who will be joined by his partners Matthew Alford and William Stradley, of the Houston criminal defense firm Stradley, Chernoff & Alford. Two California lawyers are also joining the team: Michael Flanagan of the firm Flanagan, Unger, Grover & McCool and solo practitioner Joseph Low.
Flanagan has experience with celebrity trials, having represented Britney Spears among other notables. He says the publicity for this trial already far exceeds any he’s worked on before and attributes it to the dearth of information that has been released about the 8 month investigation into Dr Murray.
Joseph Low has handled many sensitive and high profile trials including two trials of former US servicemen accused of murdering unarmed civilians in Iraq. Both men were cleared of murder charges. Low, himself a former marine, says he’s never lost a murder case.
