Yesterday in Rockland I made a bail argument for a client I represented as lawyer of the day. Prosecution wanted her held without bail, but after presenting the details of her situation to the judge, we managed to get her a better bail than I had even asked for.

The article doesn't really capture the full story, but that may just be the nature of court reporting. It does lend strength to my policy of not talking to the press. The nuances and subtleties of what I do in court do not always translate well into a newspaper article. I would rather be anonymous than misquoted.
