Mariel Colón Miró is 26-years-old and already a super attorney
Mariel Colón Miró represents El Chapo and Epstein at 26 with smart and innovative legal strategies. She’s this generation’s power attorney.
Ms. Colón Miró was looking for a job while waiting for her bar exam results.
She got a job working as a paralegal until the state granted her law license.
El Chapo hired the firm where she was working.
The rest is history.
Rookie attorney Mariel Colón Miró became legal counsel for El Chapo and Epstein as a result of her paralegal beginnings. (And being very smart).
Can you imagine representing Joaquín “El Chapo” Archivaldo Guzmán Loera and Jeffery Epstein right after starting a legal career?
“As a junior attorney on the team, Colón Miró filed creative motions making arguments that had a strategic impact on the case — but it was her ability to put El Chapo at ease that most impressed the all-star team of defense attorneys Guzmán had assembled for himself.
“Chapo, not being American and familiar with our justice system, didn’t trust everyone who worked on the case,” said Jeffrey Lichtman, one of Guzmán’s attorneys who is best known for winning an acquittal for John Gotti Jr. in 2005. “But he always trusted her.”The 26-Year-Old Defense Attorney Whose First Two Clients Were El Chapo and Jeffrey Epstein
Will She Be This Generation’s Power Lawyer?
It’s still early in her career, but I’m hoping Mariel Colón Miró continues her success.
She’s fearless, smart, and taking charge at the beginning of her career.
