Law firm representing latest Epstein accuser previously defended lawyer Alan Dershowitz

The Miami-based law firm representing the latest accuser of late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein had previously defended lawyer Alan Dershowitz in his legal battle against Virginia Roberts Giuffre, according to a new report.     

In a new lawsuit filed last week, a Turkish-born woman claimed she was repeatedly raped by Epstein with the help of his alleged madam, Ghislaine Maxwell, in front of her eight-year-old son.

The accuser, identified only as Jane Doe, said she was 26 years old and working as a real estate agent in Florida at the time the attacks began in January 2008. 

The abuse continued for at least five months, culminating in Epstein forcing the woman to undergo vaginal surgery to make her appear as a virgin, according to court documents.

She claimed the surgery was carried out ‘in a wealthy person’s home by a man with a Russian accent’ and left her mutilated and permanently damaged.

Doe also alleged that Epstein had once threatened to feed her to alligators at a Florida waterway if she ever reported his crimes. 

The allegations were the latest in the slew of disturbing claims made by several women who claimed to have been victims of Epstein’s underage sex trafficking ring, including ‘sex slave’ Virginia Roberts Giuffre.

On Tuesday the Daily Beast reported that Doe is being represented by the same law firm representing lawyer Alan Dershowitz, who has also been accused of participating in the abuse with the billionaire financier. 

Giuffre, one of the most outspoken victims of Epstein’s child sex trafficking ring, claimed the noted lawyer was among the prominent men who sexually exploited her when she was 17 and 18 years old.

The 37-year-old has said in court filings that Epstein made her his teenage ‘love slave’ and forced her to have sex with Dershowitz a half-dozen times in Florida, New York, New Mexico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Dershowitz, who was once part of President Donald Trump’s impeachment defense team, has vehemently denied the allegations. 

He retained attorney Kendall Coffey, a partner of the Miami-based firm Coffey Burlington that is representing Doe, to represent him after he being sued by Giuffre for defamation.

According to the report, Coffey, a former US attorney, appears to have close ties to Dershowitz that go beyond being his lawyer.

The outlet pointed to a LA Times article last year in which Coffey was referred to as a ‘close friend’ of Dershowitz in addition to being his attorney.

Coffey Burlington, however, has claimed there is no conflict of interest in Doe’s lawsuit despite their previous connections to the Epstein case. 

‘It would be wholly inappropriate and unfair to both our current client and Professor Dershowitz to suggest that there is any connection between the two of them,’ attorney Andrew Marks, who representing Doe, told The Daily Beast Tuesday. 

Co-founder and partner Robert Burlington also argued the two cases were independent of each other. 

‘We represented a victim (Dershowitz) of defamation by an accuser and we now represent a victim of sexual battery against Epstein and Maxwell.’

Dershowitz himself even vouched for his legal team, telling the outlet that Coffey ‘is a very ethical lawyer.’

A hearing for Doe’s case is scheduled in Fort Lauderdale on Thursday.

The lawsuit comes as additional charges were filed against Maxwell last Monday, alleging that she trafficked a 14-year-old girl for sex.

Epstein died by suicide in August 2019, aged 66, while awaiting trial in jail. His estate is facing numerous civil suits.

Maxwell, 59, his former girlfriend and alleged accomplice, was arrested in July in New Hampshire and is currently in jail in Brooklyn, awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.
