Mark E. Schamel, Washington, D.C.-based partner in Lowenstein’s White Collar Criminal Defense group, represents the Capitol Police officer accused of shooting a rioter who was part of the attack on the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Speaking to the The Wall Street Journal about the possibility of charges against his client, Schamel says: “Without question he should be cleared. … There’s no way to look at the evidence and think he’s anything but a hero.”

CNN quotes Schamel as well: “In every analysis, this was an absolutely justified use of force.” The story is also featured on NBC News, WHDH News Boston, and RT.com, where he adds: “I think it's his heroism and his restraint that saved lives.”
