The information provided herein is believed to be accurate. The attorneys identified below have appeared in some capacity in the massive litigation relating to the Nicheries and their many entities either as representing the Nicheries or their corporations or representing the interests of victims.

The fact that an attorney is listed on this schedule as representing the Nicheries or their interests does not mean that the attorney was an active participant in the Nicherie's activities, or considered to be conspirators, and may have only had a limited representation. Several attorneys withdrew when the extent of the Nicheries activity or their purpose became clear.
