To answer these questions, he released a communicated through their social networks. “During the last two days I listened for hours, on channels of all kinds, a series of hypotheses and speculations about who I am, who I answer to and who pays me the fees. Also about what my role is in the case in which it is investigated the execrable attack against Cristina Fernández de Kirchner”, began the lawyer.
In the first place, he explained that he came to the cause “through the referral from a colleague that he decided not to take the representation because he did not have the number of hours of work that this defense would require and he proposed to Carrizo’s family” that they contact him.
On the other hand, he specified that, “due to Carrizo’s economic situation,” he decided to take the case “pro-bono,” that is, “for the collection of the legal minimum“. “Eventually, Carrizo or whoever is convicted will pay me in costs at the end of the process”, he added.

She started as a student and now as a professional. Fernando, unlike Brenda, who He works in my office, he has his own studio and we handle some cases together. Fernando has no involvement in this case, he only appears on the authorization plate of the court documents.”
Finally, he rejected the versions that Javier Milei, Ramiro Marra, Ignacio Torres, or PRO referents put him in the cause: “Gabriel Nicolás Carrizo put me in this cause. I have no links with the PRO or with any other political space“.
“When a person enters my office, I do not ask him what his political inclination is, but which of his rights is being violated. And I am ready to defend him,” he closed.
