The Police in the US has this week re-opened an investigation into rape allegations against the 33-year-old Ronaldo.
Chesnoff, a criminal defence lawyer has previously represented high-profile figures such as Shaquille O’Neal, Mike Tyson, Bruno Mars, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx and members of Michael Jackon’s family.
Based in Las Vegas at his Chesnoff & Schonfeld law firm, he also specialises in libel cases, and is viewed as one of the world’s top lawyers in his areas of expertise.
Chesnoff has not wasted any time. Immediately after he was taken on by Ronaldo on Wednesday, he issued a statement “categorically” denying the accusations made by Kathryn Mayorga, 34, who claims that the Juventus footballer raped her in a hotel room in Las Vegas in June 2009.
