United States District Judge

New York, New York 10007

Dear Judge Marrero:

Re: United States v. Mindyuk, Vitaliy
Docket No.: 11 Cr. 614 (VM)

In December 2011 you authorized the use of paralegals in this case. A copy of the so

ordered letter is attached. One of the paralegals, Shana Kniznik has since left my employment to
go to law school and I have replaced her with an attorney associate, Carina Patritti. As we now
prepare for a trial in this matter, I would like to utilize her services. The presumptive rate for
associate is $85.00 per hour. Because Ms. Patritti is a full time employee for whom I provide
benefits and absorb overhead, the Second Circuit Manual contemplates that I may request her to
be paid at $110.00 per hour, still substantially less than my hourly rate under the Criminal Justice
Act. I request that you authorize me to use her services on this case for up to fifty hours,
understanding that f I need more time, I will seek your authorization.

Respectfully yours,
