Kaplan Hecker & Fink Partner Robbie Kaplan spoke to Business Insider about the courtroom dynamics between former President Donald Trump and his legal team. "As a lawyer, being able to filter what a client says to you in court as things are happening in real time can be a challenge. I think that when it comes to Donald Trump, that was a particularly difficult challenge. Not only did his lawyers seem to be very aware that he was there, but he seemed to be actively involved in what they were saying and what strategy they were employing before the judge and the jury."

Robbie recently led the legal team representing writer E. Jean Carroll in her sexual battery and defamation suits against Donald Trump, securing $5 million and $83.3 million jury verdicts, respectively, on her behalf in cases where the juries reached their verdicts in under three hours.
