So I have resigned from my private practice job, effective next Friday, January 30. I wish I could seamlessly transition back to the public defender’s office, but since I left (I don’t know if you’ve heard about this yet) the economy collapsed. Hiring is essentially frozen, even...
It’s been a long time, I know. This has mostly been on purpose, as I can’t be very open on here anymore and that is difficult for me because there is a damn lot that I would like to say. But I can’t say most of it, so I will just say this: I miss [...]It’s been a long...
There was an article in one of the papers today about the death of one of my former clients. She was the first of my clients to pass away (that I know of at least). She was young and she was a severe addict. I once got her out of jail and straight into a [...]There was an article in one of the...
I have been thinking about this post for about a month and a half now and I’m still not sure exactly how to say it. Basically - I sold out. Sort of. I left the public defender’s office for private practice. BUT it is still criminal defense and my heart is [...] I have been...

If you remember, my first trial was a contested bench trial last July, which I won. My first jury trial was last September, which I won on four out of seven counts by way of required findings of not guilty, but the jury convicted on all three counts that went to them and my client [...]If you...
I’m back to being a writer/editor for the suicidegirls website (if you don’t know, it’s a site focused primarily on naked girls, so don’t be shocked). I began my internet writing career as a Politics writer/editor over there from 2005-06. When they went in a different...
Merry Christmas to all my clients, past and present, who are in jail for this Christmas. I tried my hardest for all of you and I am thinking about you. I wish I could do more.Merry Christmas to all my clients, past and present, who are in jail for this Christmas. I tried my hardest for all of...
The special prosecutors hired to investigate the Big Dig celing collapse death are being paid $30,000 per week by the state of Massachusetts. To date, only one company has been charged with manslaughter in the death and that carries a maximum penalty of a $1000 fine. I get paid less than $40,000...
