Linda Moreno

Linda Moreno is an American attorney whose representation of clients in numerous high profile and complex trials has resulted in several successes. She specialises in the defense of national security cases involving terrorism and espionage and has extensive experience in white collar crime.

 

In her practice, she has tried over 100 jury trials, with several notable outcomes. For example:

  • In what then President Bush described as the seminal test of the Patriot Act in United States vs. Sami Amin al-Arian, et al. after a 6-month terrorism trial, the jury rebuked the government and refused to return a single guilty verdict against her client, Dr. Al-Arian.
  • In a trial where the government alleged her client was the head of a secret Taliban cell, Linda secured a dismissal of all charges against him.
  • Her co-representation of the actor, Wesley Snipes, in a white collar tax evasion trial, resulted in acquittals of all felonies leaving minor misdemeanor convictions.
  • Linda’s representation of a Muslim client accused of being an Iraqi spy and vulnerable to a 25 year prison sentence, resulted in a sentence of less than a year in prison with the Court persuaded that he was a humanitarian not engaged in espionage.
  • Linda was part of the defense team that won the ordered release of a Guantanamo detainee who had been tortured and imprisoned for over a decade.

 

 Linda has been retained by foreign embassies, including the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and the Embassy of the Arab Republic of Egypt, to represent their nationals.

 

In addition to her role as trial counsel, Ms. Moreno is also a jury consultant and in this capacity she has composed numerous juror questionnaires and assisted in the selection of thousands of potential jurors in a range of complex and controversial cases around the country.

 

She has lectured on the subject of civil liberties and terrorism trials at universities and legal institutions across America and England. The Nobel Peace Committee and the Norwegian Bar Association invited her to address lawyers, parliamentary members, and media about human rights in the wake of 9/11.

 

She has consulted as an expert in the field of anti Muslim bias in American jury trials for British colleagues.

 

Linda possesses a current Secret Security Clearance.
