I'm happy to know that Buju is getting the best of the best to represent him in the court room. Attorney at law, David Oscar Markus will be leading the team to get Buju Banton off charges of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute over 5 kilograms of cocaine.
Attorney David Oscar Markus is a 36 year old graduate of Harvard Law School whose been involved in several high-profile cases. He was named on of the Top 40 Litigators under 40 years old in the United States from the National Law Review.
Since 2007, Markus has been known as one f the United States leading criminal defense lawyers. Among his clients were Gilberto and Miguel Rodriquez-Orejuela, brothers and alleged founders of the infamous Cali Cartel which operated a multibillion-dollar cocaine trade in Columbia during the 1970s and 1980s.
In February, he successfully represented Dr. Ali Shaygan who was charged with 141 counts of illegally selling pain medication. Shaygan was acquitted of all charges, and he and his lawyers awarded damages of US$600,000.
I'm excited to know that Buju found an attorney with such a great rep sheet!!
I wish them much luck with this case... they're moving in the right direction.
