David Povich: Washington Lawyer Who Specialized in White-Collar Criminal Defense

From a Washington Post obit by Adam Bernstein headlined “David Povich, prominent defense lawyer, dies at 87”:

David Povich, a partner at the premier Washington law firm of Williams & Connolly who once won an acquittal for an assistant U.S. attorney seen on videotape taking bribe money from undercover agents — an entrapment case in which he warned prosecutors against prematurely assuming they had caught their “big fish,” died Aug. 19 at his home in the District.

The cause was mantle cell lymphoma, said his sister, Lynn Povich, an author and former Newsweek journalist.
