Lawyers are the most despised professionals in the United States. A 2013 Pew survey found that only 18% of Americans believe attorneys contribute anything positive to society.

But just because most lawyers are sleazy, manipulative money grubs doesn’t mean there aren’t great ones who have perfected the art of litigation.
Jose Baez accomplished a great legal feat when he got Casey Anthony, a woman who likely murdered her own 2-year-old daughter, acquitted.
