It is an instructive example of how the modern lawyer refuses to accept professional responsibility for the unethical or immoral conduct of clients, and it demonstrates how a lawyer's indifference to a client's conduct may contribute to a larger national crisis.U.S. District Judge Stanley Sporkin has chronicled the commercial abuses and ethical neglect that preceded Lincoln's descent into insolvency.

Jason Shapiro, a criminal defense attorney for 22 years and a Terps football season-ticket holder from Howard County, said he will represent Maryland running back Wes Brown. Brown is accused of second-degree assault on a Baltimore Police detective who hoped to question him as a “person of interest” in a non-fatal shooting investigation. Police say Brown's car was linked to the shooting. Shapiro said in an interview: “I don't believe, from what I hear, that he has criminal culpability in Baltimore City.” Shapiro said he is still obtaining and studying the facts in the assault case.

Whenever the issue of lawyer advertising is presented as controversy -- that is, whenever I hear lawyers arguing that other lawyers shouldn't cheapen the profession with their trashy TV commercials -- I imagine a clan of sneering blue bloods who refuse to attend a fancy cotillion for fear their bourgeois cousins will show up, pocket the pastry, steal the silverware and do the Hully Gully.It's a kind of class struggle within the legal profession. There are many attorneys who wish to maintain a high standard, or at least the aura of one, by refraining from tasteless commercial appeals.

Her father was a physician who founded Baltimore's NAACP chapter.
