Alan Dershowitz: Yes, I Am Still Jeffrey Epstein’s Lawyer

Lawyer Alan Dershowitz has said that he still represents convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who pleaded guilty to soliciting underage sexual partners whom he initially recruited as masseurs. Dershowitz, 80, told Axios that Epstein “has called me a couple of times about legal issues, because I’m still technically his lawyer,” adding, “I haven’t had any social, or any other kind of contact [but] you never stop being a person’s lawyer.” Dershowitz told Axios that Epstein lent his family his Palm Beach, Florida, house and that he received a “therapeutic massage with an old old Russian” there, but he’d had no idea “anything improper had even taken place in that house.” While he was allegedly raping teenage girls, Epstein cultivated relationships with a global elite: Bill Clinton flew on Epstein’s plane, nicknamed the “Lolita Express,” numerous times; Prince Andrew’s ex-wife borrowed money from him; and Donald Trump praised him as a “terrific guy.”
