Atlanta Turns to the Church Law Firm for Legal Analysis in the Trump RICO Case

Our firm has recently had the honor of being called on by several national and local media outlets to explain and analyze the legal issues in the RICO case brought against Donald Trump and 18 other defendants in Fulton County, Georgia. Since Trump’s indictment, Attorney Tom Church has been featured and/or quoted in national outlets like Scripp News, the Washington Post, and, as well as local outlets Fox5 and 11Alive.

On August 15, 2023, Tom appeared on national television via Scripps News to discuss the indictment, including the charges brought against Trump and his co-defendants under Georgia’s RICO Act, which targets racketeering. Tom gave a detailed explanation of how the Georgia RICO Act can be used in broad ways to charge multiple people for otherwise non-criminal acts as long as they work towards a common purpose.

Later that day, Tom appeared on Fox5, a local Atlanta outlet, to discuss DA Willis’ prior experience with RICO prosecutions and how she could use the Georgia RICO Act against Trump and his co-defendants. Tom had previously been on Fox5 to describe what a RICO case against Trump and others could look like.

A week later, as Trump and his co-defendants began turning themselves in for booking at the Fulton County jail, Tom was called on yet again for a live interview with Scripps News. Tom answered questions regarding the booking process, Trump’s bond, removal to federal court, and other important issues in the Trump RICO case.

A couple days later, Fox5 called on Tom again to discuss the next steps for Trump and his co-defendants, including their arraignments.

Tom has also been quoted in print too, including in national newspapers. The Washington Post, for example, asked Tom about Scott McAfee, the newly appointed Superior Court judge who has been assigned the Trump case. The Wall Street Journal cited Tom’s analysis for the potential defenses Trump may raise at trial.

We do our best to be available when local or national news outlets seek expert legal analysis, and look forward to continuing to inform the public about this unprecedented case and the complex legal issues that will arise as it continues. Media inquiries should call (404) 223-3310 or email
