Litigating in the Limelight:
Lawyers Representing Celebrities

By Ross Johnson, American Bar Association newsletter


An attorney representing a celebrity in a high-stakes civil or criminal trial litigation is akin to someone playing blackjack in Vegas: It’s not an exact science, and rules are made to be broken. In the end, those who can do the math live to fight another day. In other words, repping a celebrity in litigation can be an express train to money and glory, a lawyer’s worst nightmare, or, in some cases, simply another day’s work for a certain type of attorney.
