LOS ANGELES, March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The following statement was issued today by Robert Shapiro of the law firm Christensen, Glaser, Fink, Jacobs, Weil & Shapiro, LLP, lead counsel for Gary Matthews Jr., in response to media and other inquiries: I have met with Gary Matthews Jr., whom I believe is a terrific young man, and I am firmly convinced that he has not violated any laws or any rules established by Major League Baseball. Gary wishes to cooperate with Major League Baseball, the Los Angeles Angels and any other investigative agency that may look into this matter. He is eager to tell his side of the story and looks forward to providing a statement once all investigations into the matter have been completed. However, it is my long standing policy not to allow clients to comment while an investigation is ongoing. To do so would be inappropriate and I believe irresponsible.
