Nancy Salzman gets yet another attorney – likely on Bronfman sisters’ dime

It seems Clare and Sara Bronfman have put up more money to fight their legal fight against the US Attorney EDNY – possibly secreting assets to liquidate in order to pay more attorneys to wage their continuous war to stay in business and keep out of prison.

Now, Nancy Salzman has yet another attorney, Robert A. Soloway of Manhattan.


Soloway [above] is a law partner of one of Salzman’s other attorneys David Stern [below].

David Stern – best known for his defense of alleged murderers in capital punishment cases.

Nancy’s latest attorney, Robert A. Soloway, is a founding member of the firm Rothman, Schneider, Soloway & Stern, LLP and heads the firm’s civil rights and personal injury section.

He began his law career as an associate with Munves, Tanenhaus & Storch, P.C., where his practice focused on the defense of asbestos-­related personal injury claims on behalf of a Fortune 500 company.

In 1985, he joined Jacobs & Deutsch, P.C. as an associate concentrating in general corporate and tort litigation, contracts, and real estate.

In 1987, he joined the Criminal Defense Division of the Legal Aid Society as a staff attorney, where he represented indigent individuals accused of crimes in the Supreme and Criminal Courts of New York State. He and his partners founded Rothman, Schneider, Soloway & Stern, LLP  in 1993, and he maintains a diverse practice including criminal trial and appeal matters, civil rights, and general injury litigation.

In addition to trial and appeal of serious criminal cases, including murder, rape, terrorism, and the defense of narcotics crimes, Robert served as lead counsel in civil actions, and earned millions in settlements and jury verdicts for clients in litigation of false arrests, police brutality, malicious criminal prosecution, as well as slip and falls, medical and legal malpractice, and automobile accident cases.

The number of attorneys now stand at 18 – which will go up to 19 if the Bronfman sisters decide to hire a new attorney for Kathy Russell.

  • None of these women are “lesbian”. They all might have experienced sexual relationships with women, had sex with women for some personal or NXIVM gain or because it got their Vanguard Master “off” to hear of their same sex experiences. None of the women in this post are truly from the lesbian community.

    I think it’s insulting to put the two groups together. When you think about it, saying someone looks butch – what do you mean by that? It appears like a slam against the entire lesbian community. Dragging this group of female criminals into something that has nothing to do with the lesbian community just shouldn’t fit. What are we still in the 50’s and 60’s when dealing with sexual orientation?

    To use the word “butch” is just like saying someone looks like a “N….. word” because someone is darked skinned.

  • I like the little girl in the background, ( no not in the same way Vantard would) she seems to be thinking “so that is what pure evil looks like.”

  • Catherine Oxenberg totally insulted Nancy Salzman in her new book. Wrote that Nancy gives off a “butch vibe.”


    • Clare Oxenberg’s book mentions that several of the top women in NXIVM are butch.
      Women like Clare Bronfman and Lauren Salzman are somewhat masculine according to Oxenberg.

      Does that mean that the sex slaves being recruited by Allison Mack for NXIVM were supposed to service the top NXIVM women as well
      as Raniere?

      Does that explain why Clare was so generous as to buy Mack a new BMW?
      Not as a gift but for services rendered.

      And Clare went on wilderness vacations with both Nicki Clyne and Lauren Salzman.
      Healthy women enjoying all the wonders of nature.

      Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  • The more lawyers, the more guilty.
    Innocent people don’t need teams like this.
    They can just rely on exculpatory evidence.

  • I still get the biggest belly laugh when I see the look on Nancy Salzman’s face walking into the court house.

    Yes, she has lost a lot of hair over the years and looks to be about 75 years old with a bad dye job.

    Nancy you were warned by so many that Vanpoo was a psycho and ya just kept selling his BS.

  • As to Nicki Clyne needing a criminal attorney…

    How soon it will be and which charges.

    We know she is going to prison and getting deported for immigration fraud, although, if she flipped she might be able to skip the prison time and just get deported.

  • A few days ago I made the statement that Allison Mack might be grooming underage girls not just for Keith Raniere but also for high ranking women in NXIVM’s elite who were lesbian or bisexual.

    Here is a quote from Catherine Oxenberg’s book “Captive” which indicates that I might not be so far off track:

    Nancy, Clare, Esther, Wendy, and even Nancy’s daughter, Lauren, all gave off
    a bit of a butch vibe to Casper and me—especially to my husband, who fancied
    himself a female sex appeal whisperer.
    “None of those women,” he declared to me one day (after careful examination,
    I’m sure), “has an iota of sensuality.”

    • Wow…the Butch Vibe. That’s what they gave off…including Nancy Salzman. The details of this story are fascinating…loathsome and dramatic.

      • And who would doubt Casper Van Dien’s ability to distinguish between lesbians and real women.
        Catherine Oxenberg called him the “female sex appeal whisperer.”
        Of course Clair Bronfman is an easy giveaway.

    • Good grief bigmouth, your stool-shooter is working overtime crapping up all these threads. You seem like a lonely old man. I bet your backround is somewhat shady and I would be a little concerned with your internet viewing habits.

      • Attacking shadowstate anonymously doesn’t make you any less obvious, you twat. Take your trolling elsewhere.

          • I am not Scott.
            I don’t giver a damn about Amway.

            If you don’t like what I say, then too damned bad.
            Say what you want and don’t try to control what other people say.
            You are a control freak like Raniere.

          • I agree that Shadowstate is the new Scott. Not only do I not give 2 shitz about what you say ,I wish you would stop saying so much of it. You are a fucking thread clogging bore.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest.
