MYLES H. MALMAN JOINS PHILADELPHIA LAW FIRM OF KOHN, NAST & GRAF

 MYLES H. MALMAN JOINS PHILADELPHIA LAW FIRM OF KOHN, NAST & GRAF
 PHILADELPHIA, July 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Myles H. Malman, deputy chief of the federal trial team that convicted Gen. Manuel Antonio Noriega, has joined the Philadelphia law firm of Kohn, Nast & Graf, P.C.
 Malman supervised the Noriega trial and investigative teams and personally handled critical aspects of the case. He participated in jury selection and was responsible for the examination of critical witnesses including former Noriega aide Lt. Col. Luis Del Cid; Pablo Escobar's pilot David Rodriguez Ortiz; former Panamanian Ambassador Ricardo Bilonick; Cartel transportation boss Pepe Cabrera, and several others.
 Malman gave a six and one-half hour closing argument which several jurors said was pivotal to their understanding of the seven-month trial.
 Kohn, Nast & Graf, P.C. is headquartered in Philadelphia, with a national practice in major complex antitrust, securities and other litigation. Dianne M. Nast, a senior member of the firm, was among lead counsel negotiating the recent $450 million settlement of the Airline Antitrust Litigation. Joseph C. Kohn, also a senior member of the firm, is the Democratic nominee for attorney general of the commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
 Malman, 45, has been a federal and state prosecutor for 17 years, most recently serving as deputy first assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Florida, managing the 200-lawyer office. As special counsel to three U.S. attorneys, he has tried major cases, acted as advisor in complex litigation, obtained convictions in complicated federal cases, and handled the only successful federal Civil Rights Act prosecution in that district.
 No stranger to the private sector, Malman joined the Miami law firm of Hornsby and Whisenand in 1988, where he successfully represented Barbara P. Johnson, the Lawrenceville, N.J., widow of the late J. Seward Johnson of the Johnson & Johnson drug firm, which was part of a bitterly fought complex will contest. At the conclusion of the Johnson case, Malman returned to the U.S. Attorney's Office to manage its staff.
 Malman brings 18 years of trial experience to the Kohn firm. A native of New York City, he served for 10 years on the staff of Manhattan District Attorney Robert M. Morgenthau, as senior trial counsel. There he handled some of the most sensational and significant criminal prosecutions in that office, including prosecuting a serial killer who, in 1980, terrorized women in New York and New Jersey.
 The recipient of six Justice Department Superior Achievement Awards for outstanding performance, Malman is also a member of the faculty of the National Institute of Trial Advocacy at Hofstra University Law School and the Trial Advocacy Program at Widener University Law School.
 A Vietnam veteran, Malman served with the Military Police Corps, First Air Cavalry Division.
 Malman said: "I am delighted to be associated with Kohn, Nast & Graf, P.C. and continue high-level litigation with this nationally known and respected firm."
 Harold E. Kohn welcomed Malman: "Myles Malman is an experienced trial lawyer with a distinguished record of successful prosecutions. He will lend additional strength to our busy trial teams, which are now preparing for major antitrust and toxic tort trials, and a heavy business litigation schedule. He is the kind of lawyer we have been looking for to share our busy trial schedule. One of Myles' top priorities will be to work with Robert A. Swift of our firm as Bob prepares for trial in Hawaii against Imelda Marcos and the Marcos Estate on behalf of 10,000 torture victims. I am sure Myles' experience with the Noriega trial will be a real asset at the Marcos trial."
 Neal R. Sonnett, president-elect of the ABA's Criminal Justice Section and a former president of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, said about Malman's departure from the U.S. Attorney's Office: "His service to our nation was extraordinary. But the government's loss is the private bar's gain. He is going to be practicing with a fine firm."
 Thomas V. Cash, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Special Agent in charge of Miami, said about Malman's part in the Noriega trial: "Anyone who observed the trial and the brilliant summation by Myles Malman will never forget the detail, the preparation, and most importantly the results from this lawyer's work."
