LeSean McCoy has hired a heavy hitter to fight the accusation he sent a goon to beat up his ex-girlfriend Delisha Cordon for not leaving his house and returning his jewelry.
Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy has hired powerful Atlanta defense attorney Don Samuel and is moving to prepare a public relations defense against accusations that he was involved in the beating and robbery of his ex-girlfriend this week, according to a source who spoke to Yahoo Sports.
McCoy isn’t Samuel’s first high-profile NFL client. Samuel was part of the defense team that defended former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis in a double-homicide case in 2000, and was also part of the legal team that represented Pittsburgh Steelers star Ben Roethlisberger in 2010 when the quarterback was facing sexual assault allegations. Other notable clients included rapper TI and Savannah antique dealer Jim Williams, whose murder trial saga became the centerpiece for the best-selling book “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.”
