We wonder what the defendant felt when this attorney asked this question. He obviously couldn’t afford to hire someone from a well-respected law firm, and he knew he was given a rough deal when this fellow of an attorney was appointed.

If this was my attorney, and he would have asked this question, I would for sure ask for a new one. Definitely not a male or female. I still haven't decided which make.
