Two staff writers for NorthJersey.com have a very interesting piece on the behind the scenes world of Joe and Teresa Giudice’s attorneys. Also in their piece they talk about the attorney who handles contract negotiations for Joe and Melissa Gorga, and Kathy Wakile and Rosie.
Joe and Tre’s lawyers have reviewed hours and hours and hours of raw footage from the show that the Feds subpoenaed from Bravo. #IndicitmentsByBravo
It really is an interesting piece of reporting. I highly recommend you go read the whole piece. Click through for an exerpt.
“In the course of the government turning over evidence in the case, the government has provided us with outtakes,” Klingeman said. “We are reviewing the broadcast show as well as things that were filmed but not broadcast.”
Feinstein, who had seen just one or two episodes of “RHONJ” before taking on Giudice as a client, has now seen every episode. He said he has “spoken to Bravo about certain matters that I did not want discussed on the program that I thought might be prejudicial in getting a jury. There were certain times when they were agreeable.”
Klingeman and Feinstein have found themselves in some atypical attorney-client settings of late. The duo, who work “shoulder to shoulder,” as Klingeman puts it, were present on Sept. 4 when the “RHONJ” Season 5 reunion show was taped at The Venetian in Garfield.
“I want to make sure that, on the one hand, Teresa’s able to maintain her career and fulfill her obligations to Bravo. But I also want to make sure, on the other, that no one tries to manipulate her or take advantage of the situation in a way that will harm her legal defense,” Klingeman said.
Although cameras are not allowed in the federal courthouse, the lawyers may well end up being seen on the Bravo show next season in footage of everyone entering and exiting the courthouse. Not that they’re looking for any more publicity. Feinstein said he and Klingeman have declined numerous requests to go on “The View” and other high-profile talk shows to discuss the case.
