From CNN:
Attorney Mark Geragos is the unnamed co-conspirator referred to in the Southern District of New York's criminal complaint against Michael Avenatti, a source familiar confirms to CNN.

The complaint described the co-conspirator as "an attorney licensed in California who's known for his representation of celebrity and public figure clients."

Geragos has not been charged with a crime.

Geragos, who has represented a number of high profile clients including Chris Brown and Jussie Smollett, was a CNN contributor.

 Geragos recently represented Colin Kaepernick against the NFL.
