    I represent Morgan on the retrial. However, Castillo did NOT successfully appeal the first conviction; he was relieved after his numerous defaults, and Jane Simkin Smith, Esq., was the attorney who successfully appealed Mr. Morgan‘s conviction. The record should be set straight; it was her work, not Castillo‘s, that led to the reversal.
