Rob Cary Discusses Senator Ted Stevens Case on “For the Defense” Podcast

March 2021

On February 16, partner Rob Cary was featured on the podcast For the Defense, hosted by federal criminal defense attorney David Markus, where David interviews trial lawyers about their “most fascinating cases.”  In this episode, Rob discussed his experience representing Senator Ted Stevens in what turned into “one of the biggest cases of prosecutorial misconduct in this Nation’s history.”

With client permission and encouragement, Rob wrote a book about the Stevens case entitled Not Guilty: The Unlawful Prosecution of U.S. Senator Ted Stevens.  Bob Woodward of The Washington Post describes the book as a “public service…a shocking, deeply sobering tale that every American worried about the concentration of power in the federal government should read and study.”  Retired federal judge Nancy Gertner describes it as “an extraordinarily important book, a must read not only for lawyers, but federal judges.”

Rob is a first-chair trial lawyer with a diverse practice.  His three most recent trials were a civil bench trial in Chancery Court in Delaware, a criminal jury trial in federal court in Oregon, and a civil fraud jury trial in federal court in the District of Columbia.  In addition to trying cases, Rob has extensive experience settling class actions, representing companies and individuals in government investigations, and conducting investigations for audit committees of publicly traded companies.  He is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers and Co-Chair of Williams & Connolly’s Law Firm Defense Practice Group.
