« D.C. Circuit Takes Up Hairy Dispute in Beards Case | Main | Steptoe & Johnson Lawyer Fights for Records in Murder Case »

October 07, 2008


“Olson has tried 50 cases before the high court, including the one that resolved the 2000 presidential election in George W. Bush’s favor. Carcieri hired Olson for $200,000 shortly after the high court agreed to hear the state’s appeal in February.”

How many of them do you think he was involved in form the beginning?

I wonder if Larisa has been to an argument in the Supreme Court.

I have seen many capable attorneys dismantled by the court.

Would you go with your family doctor for brain surgery because he has been caring for you longer?

I would opt for the professional.

Another Rhode Island Lawyer

Ego for whom? Olson or the attorney who has handled this case from the beginning? I'd rather have the attorney who knows the case and the law cold and who already argued it on appeal, than any new guy on the block, even one as qualified as Ted. The former can answer SCOTUS questions with more knowledge than the latter.

Rhode Island Lawyer

Ego, anyone?
