WILL DEFENSE LAWYERS ACCEPT HELP ON HIGH COURT CRIMINAL CASES?
The Supreme Court is generally viewed as a place where novices fear to tread. But in the criminal defense bar, where individuality and swagger reign, some hold onto the romantic notion that if they can conquer a hometown jury, they can work the same charm on the nine justices.
