Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman retains lead attorney of Alfredo "El Mochomo" Beltran

by Chivis Martinez for Borderland Beat

El Chapo Hires legal Dream Team....


Among many complaints from El Chapo Guzmán about his treatment and case, Guzmán’s wife Emma made it known the family was shopping for a new attorney. So it comes as no surprise that a new lead attorney has been retained. The surprise is that the attorney, Eduardo Balazero was the lead attorney that tried the case of Alfredo “Mochomo” Beltran Leyva. “Mochomo” was expected to become a witness against Guzmán, if ever the case went to trial.  It was wisely expected he would cut a deal with the feds in exchange for testimony . However, that never happened, Mochomo cut no deal, pleaded guilty and offered nothing.Balarezo notified the court in May that he had no intentions of going forth with Mochomo’s appellate case.


Balalarezo is not the only new legal hires for Guzman, among other criminal defense heavies is Attorney Jeffrey Lichtman.  Lichtman past work included beating Manhattan federal prosecutors as they repeatedly tried nailing John A. Gotti, son of the Gambino boss, on charges.

Rounding out the new legal team is Marc Fernich, who represented Gotti with Lichtman,  and William Purpura. Purpura represented Richard Anthony "Richie Rich" Wilford in his drug trafficking case.

Asked how Guzmán is doing,  Lichtman said Guzman is doing as well as anyone would be if they spent about half a year shut off from the world, Guzman is "scared, confused and deteriorating rapidly," said Lichtman. "In short, he's being treated significantly worse than the Guantanamo Bay terrorist detainees."

There will be an extensive Chapo update posted on BB this week. Below is the press announcement from Balarezo.

    1. Mochomo wouldnt play ball with the bullshit charges laid on him,no doubt hes moved gear etc,but some of the charges?They can say anything and most people believe it,most people think cops and government dont lie and exaggerate

    2. All the gov cares about is wins and not getting losses. Your guilt or innocence does not even factor into their calculus. People say Mexico is corrupt?! US prosecutors trade freedom for ficticious testimony all day everyday. Mini Fresa will be a well paid beneficiary of this bullshit USA government disregard for justice.

    3. @8:40 the reason why it didn't work for Mochomo is because HE CUT NO DEAL!! That's what happens TO REAL MEN! When u MAKE the choice of entering the game these MEN are in you don't start pointing fingers if u are caught. I bet it didn't even cross his mind. Waking up and going to work 5 times a week 8 hours a day is ALOT easier than what these guys are doing And I don't think a lot of ppl understand that. This ONLY IMPLIES to a FEW MEN like Mochomo I AM NOT SAYING DOPE PEDDLERS ARE MORE RESPECTED THAN THE WORKING MAN OR WOMAN. 99% of these dope paddlers are LAZY PUNKS! But my respects to Mochomo

    4. We all respect la Mochoma, but the smart man gets away with murda, I'd recomend La Mochoma to reconsider,

  7. This is going to be hilarious, I expect the US goverment to block any payments to his lawyers as 'tainted funds' from the Narco trade. Just where did Chapo's family get the funds for his new lawyer? Once the high priced lawyers do not get paid, how long will they stick around?

    1. I am sure old chapster has a "few" secret socks full of $ under some secret "beds" that he can have at his disposal ;-)

      As far as the lawyers getting paid...there is more than one way to empty a bottle...lawyers dont have to get paid in US, there is a reason for offshore banks and such and I am not even money weasel expert, imagine what they can do :)

    1. The problem for the new team and Chapo is that prosecutors have not given any assurances that they won’t require the new dream team forfeit their legal fees. This is according to Guzman’s current Federal Defenders of New York lawyers.
      Supposedly, The new lawyers are “reluctant” to formally become involved in the case without assurances, said attorneys Michelle Gelernt, Michael Schneider and Edward Zas.
      The Federal Defenders of NY asked the judge to give prosecutors a deadline.

  12. Remember kids! It's not how well the lawyer knows the law, it's not how outspoken he is in the courtroom, It's who he knows from the government and what kind of backroom deals he can make ;-)
