Giuliani associate Parnas unable to pay both lawyers, agrees to let one withdraw

“Since I entered my appearance, Mr. Parnas’ apparent ability to fund his defense has diminished,” attorney Edward MacMahon Jr said in a filing with the federal court in Manhattan. “It thus would constitute a significant hardship for Mr. Parnas to continue being represented by two attorneys in this matter,” MacMahon said, adding that Parnas had agreed to his request to withdraw.
