Ethan Kirschner, Satoshi Nakamoto’s Lawyer: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

Dorian Nakamoto, the man outed by Newsweek as Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto, has hired a lawyer to help him fend off press inquiries. Nakamoto’s lawyer is Ethan Kirschner. Here is what we know about Nakamoto’s attorney.


1. Ethan Kirschner Has Confirmed He’s Representing Nakamoto

While Kirschner has been tight-lipped to the press about his meetings with Nakamoto, Quartz was able to confirm that Kirscher is officially on retainer to Nakamoto. Being “on retainer” means that Nakamoto has paid Kirschner a sum of money for the legal work he will do for the alleged Bitcoin founder in the future.


2. Ethan Kirschner Prepared Nakamoto’s Statement

Ethan Kirschner prepared the statement from Dorian Nakamoto seen above. The statement includes reasons why Nakamoto could not have been the creator of Bitcoin. Citing financial problems, Nakamoto claims he canceled his Internet access in 2013. The statement also says that this will be the last public-facing message from Nakamoto on the subject of Bitcoin.


3. Ethan Kirschner Is on Twitter

In their article about Nakamoto’s statement, Quartz linked to Kirschner’s Twitter page. His Twitter profile describes Kirschner as a “Business and entertainment lawyer in Echo Park, Los Angeles.”

Based on that information, this link appears to go to Kirschner’s business website. The site’s blog appears to just have one placeholder post.

Ethan Kirschner’s Twitter profile is currently filled with retweets related to Nakamoto, including the tweet seen above. Other topics Kirschner has tweeted or retweeted about include Denny’s pancakes, Golden Age comic books, and zombies.


4. Ethan Kirschner Is Also on Yelp

Kirschner’s firm has a page on Yelp. However, nobody seems to have left a review of his services yet.

Only time will tell if Nakamoto plans to leave a Yelp review for Kirschner. Given Nakamoto’s habit of writing Amazon.com reviews, a Yelp review isn’t entirely out of the question.


5. Ethan Kirschner Holds Two Law Degrees

In the video above, Kirschner’s client Dorian Nakamoto denies allegations that he played a role in creating Bitcoin.

Ethan Kirschner’s website states that he holds law degrees from the University of Minnesota School of Law and Boalt Hall (University of California-Berkeley).

According to the rankings of law schools by US News & World Report, the University of Minnesota is in a three-way tie for 20th best law school in the US. The school ties with George Washington University and University of Southern California (Gould).

  1. Ethan is the worst attorney ever! Do not hire him, he will do nothing and expect to get paid! He will also loose all your file and except you to find it in your sent email after months of being in your case. He’s unorganized to say the least!
