As Counsel to Watergate Special Prosecutor Leon Jaworski, Philip A. Lacovara rose to prominence at the age of 30 when he successfully pled his office's case for the so-called Nixon Tapes—secret White House recordings of conversations that would finally prove President Nixon's involvement in the Watergate cover-up.

Dear Mr. Lacovara:
The enclosed materials were returned to me by mistake by the FBI. I did not forward these materials to the Bureau.
I am not competent to answer why the FBI deems the concerns of the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld relating to my mental stability and potential for violence outside its investigative jurisdiction.
You may want to address this issue with the Office of U.S. Attorney.
