MIAMI—Rivero Mestre LLP successfully defended Jose Margulies in the Eastern District of New York. After five years of careful legal work, Margulies walked away with probation in the face of a possible 10-year prison sentence. “He was immune from extradition in Brazil and didn’t have to face justice in the United States,” Rivero said. “I think the judge did the right thing.”
