Phillips said that if Hasan had no banking missteps, it's entirely likely that the financial institutions don't want to be associated with Hasan because of "personal reasons."
"I think we can understand that," he said.
Galligan said that Hasan, who will be paralyzed for the rest of his life, is "coherent" and knows what is going on in terms of his finances.
"It's issues like this that are unnecessary bumps in the road for my client," said Galligan.
If found guilty, Hasan could face the death penalty.
