The epitome of a lawyer devoid of integrity.

He wanted OJ to plea out. Johnnie Cochran was already known but that case made him a household name. RIP

Something people forget, particularly those that cling to the fantasy that OJ was innocent.

I didn't realize he was still alive considering how the others had untimely deaths(Rob Kardashian and Johnny Cochran).

That being said I'm not bothered by this guy doing his job after all there are prosecutors who knowingly send innocent people to prison and nobody seems to have an issue with them.


He lived an interesting life I'll see if there are any books about him...

He didn't just do his job. He also stole from clients.

Speaking of unethical lawyers, I got around to finishing that recent Roy Cohn documentary on cable and it wouldn't surprise me if DT winds up w/o any of his former "friends" after he can no longer serve a purpose because that's what Don and others did to Cohn. They discussed the most recent circumstance that got Cohn disbarred, although it was more like a collection of incidents. He evidently dressed up like a male nurse (which he denied) and went to the deathbed of a delirious client, Lew Rosenstiel -- liquor magnate, and secured his "signature" on a codicil making Cohn the executor of Lew's millions. The sig looked like they put the contract on the ground and placed some seeds on the dotted line and then dipped a chicken's beak in ink and allowed it to peck at the seeds. The result looked like literal chicken scratch. It was hilariously Trumpian in appearance and gall. No wonder Trump liked him so much -- at least until it came out that Roy had AIDS, then Donald abandoned him.

That part I honestly did not know then my stance changes here.
