Would You Take The Case?
You're offered the opportunity to take a very high-profile double murder trial... triple if you count the fact that one of the victims was pregnant... if you agree to work for free. Court TV will likely cover the trial, which will all-but-certainly end with your client's conviction and sentence to mandatory life without parole. If you wish to present any sort of mitigation of your client's guilt, you will probably have to expend a considerable amount of your own money for expert witnesses. But in the interim you'll get tons of publicity.
By my calculation, it isn't worth it. Would any of the lawyers reading this beg to differ?
