That goes with the territory of working in the big leagues. Trouble can be big time.
Yet, the New York Post reports that Cohen lamented to former ad executive now a television personality Donny Deutsch that the development is causing his wife distress. His exact phrase was: She didn't sign up for this.
Any spouse of a lawyer who does the assignments Cohen does is in the loop. That's just the way it goes. The ramifications could be as simple as tension at home to the possibility of the husband or wife spending years in prison.
