Donald Trump said he could shoot someone on 5th Avenue. . .

What about John Pierce, what can he get away with? The ex-lawyer for Rudy Giuliani, and lawyer for Kyle Rittenhouse, with a track record of problematic behavior, says his application to practice law in Wisconsin was granted yesterday.

John Pierce is a lawyer who represented Rudy Giuliani and now represents Kyle Rittenhouse. Pierce is also a big fan of Donald Trump. The lame duck President said he could shoot someone on New York City’s 5th Avenue and not lose support. Pierce hasn’t said anything that brazen, yet a fair question to ask: What else can Attorney John Pierce get away with?

Pierce said yesterday that his out of state application to practice law in Wisconsin in the Rittenhouse case was granted. The prosecutor’s office had informed the court that they wished to address “several issues” related to the application. It is not clear whether the prosecutor was given an opportunity to be heard.

In any event, let’s take a quick look at the question:

“Who Is John Pierce?”

  • Harvard Law School Graduate, Class of 2000.

Pierce appears to have immersed himself and others in an environment of severe misconduct.

Hecht is now with Hecht Partners, Edwards with Bradford Edwards & Varlack and Beck with Goldstein & McClintock. (Beck and Hecht photos from Proactive Investor. Edwards from a Twitter post)
  • Pierce’s ex-named partner David L. Hecht is now at Hecht Partners LLP. Ex-clients of Hecht Partners recently testified under oath that Hecht deceived them into signing up with his law firm. One ex-client said Hecht pretended to be a lawyer from another law firm.


Donald J. Trump said he could get away with shooting someone on 5th Avenue and not lose support.

While Pierce has never made such a brazen statement, he did say: “It’s so great since I’ve never been arrested or sanctioned or sued for anything. I know exactly where the line is and just get off on tipping my toe over sometimes. It’s so fun.” — John M. Pierce circa Fall 2018, as reported in The Daily Beast.

Upon reviewing the bullet points, as well as the recent Wisconsin developments, one is left to wonder:

What else can John Pierce get away with?
