The attorney representing Alec Baldwin is from the Capital District.
Our news partners at the Post Star report: Luke Nikas will represent Alec Baldwin as he faces two counts of involuntary manslaughter.
Nikas graduated from Hudson Falls High School in Washington County.
He received his degree from Harvard Law School and worked as a partner in a New York law firm.
Charges against the actor were announced Thursday after he allegedly shot a cameraman on a New Mexico movie set in October.
The deputy director — who gave Baldwin the gun — signed a plea deal to plead guilty to reckless use of a deadly weapon.
