Attorney Andrea Gambino sent a letter to her client, Glenn Lewellen, last year disclosing the feds had subpoenaed her billing records in the case. Prosecutors were investigating the “disposition of retirement accounts that were posted to secure [Lewellen's] release on bond in May 2011,” said the letter dated Feb. 26, 2014.
Gambino wrote that she was told she was a “subject of their investigation” and retained her own lawyer.
“The government’s investigation also creates a conflict of interest with regard to any new potential charges arising out of the disposition of the accounts posted to secure your release,” she wrote.
The next month, she withdrew as Lewellen’s attorney.
