What fictional lawyer would you hire to defend you if you ever get caught?
When I was young I enjoyed the Perry Mason novels, but honestly I don't think I'd want him to defend me. He's never lost a case…yet. Which makes me worried that he's too comfortable. If I'm ever in trouble, I want a lawyer who's hungry, who has as much to loose as I do.
Someone who will go the extra mile.
If I'm ever in trouble and need a lawyer, I want Paul Levine's Steve Solomon and Victoria Lord on my side.
First, Solomon is passionate about his cases. He doesn't care what he looks like or if he's sanctioned or threatened with jail, as long as he gets his client off. And Victoria Lord applies her sharp legal mind to their cases—both to keep the client out of jail as well as Solomon.
Second, they seem like fun people to hang out with—and if I'm in trouble, I'm going to need all the cheering up I can get.
Third, Paul Levine is a Penn State alum and Nittany Lion fan! Who could ask for more in their "Dream Team"???
Now, here's the real question….what kind of crime would a little ole pediatrician from Pennsylvania like me be charged with?
Thanks for reading!
