Legendary Trial Lawyer Gerry Spence
According to Gerry Spence, “The media is owned by the power structure in this country, so we don’t hear from the people, we hear from … the people’s master, the corporate entities of this country who control the people – who own their jobs and who tell them what they should think. And so the corporate media tells the people that lawyers – trial lawyers – are sleaze bugs…[who are] not to be in any way relied upon … [who are] bought and sold…[who] have no basic moral standing.”
While remedying this cultural stigma against trial attorneys might seem daunting to most people – even most lawyers – Spence isn’t one to be easily intimidated. And rightly so, with a legal record that would have many other lawyers drooling. Spence “has never lost a criminal case either as a prosecutor or a defense attorney. he has not lost a civil case since 1969. Gerry Spence has won more multi-million dollar verdicts without an intervening loss than any lawyer in America,” according to his website.
