Terry Lenzner, the Investigator

Email a Friend

Investigative lawyer Terry Lenzner has uncovered facts that have shaped policy and influenced major legal battles. At the Justice Department in 1964, he investigated the murder of three civil rights workers. As a counsel to the Senate Watergate Committee, Lenzner investigated Nixon and followed the money trail that led to the Watergate burglary and cover-up; he was the first person to deliver a congressional subpoena to a sitting U.S. president. He helped identify the Unabomber, investigated the circumstances of Princess Diana’s death, and cleared Hugo Chavez of false corruption charges. In his memoir, The Investigator: Fifty Years of Uncovering the Truth, he tells stories from his varied career and high-profile cases for the first time.
