Dr. Arias has the support of former Colombian President Alvaro Uribe, former U.S. Congressman Lincoln Diaz-Balart, and many other high-ranking officials. Dr. Arias was the Colombian Minister of Agriculture until February 2009, when he decided to run for the Conservative Party nomination for president in 2010. Dr. Arias was viewed as President Uribe’s protégé and likely successor, and therefore, an enemy of the FARC. If elected as president, Dr. Arias would have continued Uribe’s program of crippling the FARC, rather than negotiating with them. As such, Andres Felipe Arias, as the potential President of Colombia, was an imminent threat to the terrorist group. Dr. Arias was taken out of the presidential election when baseless corruption charges emerged — false allegations that were contrived and fueled by his political opponents. His case was prosecuted by two anti-Uribe attorneys general, one of whom is married to a man with ties to guerilla groups targeted by the Uribe administration. It is undisputed that Mr. Arias did not obtain any financial benefit, he did not receive one penny, there were no kickbacks and no quid pro quo.  Contrary to due process requirements here in the United States,...

Margot Moss profiled by Attorney At Law Magazine

Doyle Todd Yoder Katie Miller Case Summaries News and Articles Blog Contact Us Menu: [db_post_title] [db_post_meta][db_feature_image] Margot Moss was profiled by Attorney At Law Magazine here: Most of my life, I wanted to be a musician,” attorney Margot Moss says. “I studied classical piano, attended a performing arts high school and obtained my undergraduate and master’s degree in music.

As a criminal defense lawyer, Moss gives a voice to those who are normally voiceless. She considers her job as standing up for the underdog by challenging the courts to uphold constitutional rights. “I love defending someone who is being bullied by the overreaching of the government.” “I represent people going through the most difficult times in their lives,” she says. “A criminal accusation doesn’t just affect the individual; families are torn apart, homes are lost, parents taken from their children, and bank accounts are drained. Whether the individual is guilty or innocent, it is extremely traumatic and stressful for the client.” It’s difficult for the lawyer as well, according to Moss. The life of a...
