Anonymous asked: When the prosecutor is a former child star and starts voir dire by asking the jury if anyone recognizes her? This happened.

Anonymous asked: When you receive a voicemail from an incarcerated client where he says "I just wanted to call and say that I think you're doing a great job. I really appreciate your help. A lot of guys in here aren't happy with their attorneys, but I just wanted to say thanks for everything you're doing for me."
