    Default One-on-one with Lin Wood

    One-on-one with Lin Wood
    ALBANY — Like so many of the people who are universally recognized among the best at what they do, Lin Wood is a presence. His rugged good looks and steely gaze no doubt serve him well in the nation’s courts of law, but even in a room of similarly dressed golfers and hackers, people notice him.

    Of course, Wood’s used to being noticed. No less a luminary than Dan Rather called the Atlanta-based lawyer “the attorney for the damned.” Editor & Publisher magazine labeled him “one of the most dangerous media-plaintiff lawyers in the United States.”

    Both were meant as compliments.

    But stripped of his aura of celebrity that’s part of the package when your client list includes John and Patsy Ramsey, Howard K. Stern, Richard Jewell, the mothers of Beth Holloway and Laci Peterson, Gary Condit and Katelyn Faber — aka the girl who accused NBA MVP Kobe Bryant of sexual assault — Wood is about as down-to-earth and straight-forward as a guy with his pedigree is bound to be.

    snip

    — John and Patsy Ramsey, the parents initially accused in the death of their daughter, JonBenet Ramsey: “The sad thing about this case is that the brutal murder of his daughter was not the first tragedy John Ramsey had to go through. His oldest daughter, Beth, was killed in a tragic auto accident along with her fiancee in ’92; Patsy was diagnosed with stage-4 ovarian cancer in ’93, followed by the brutal murder of JonBenet in ’96. All that tragedy was followed by 10 years of false accusations about the torture, sexual assault and murder of their child. And the only evidence that ever linked them to the case is that they were asleep in the house (where JonBenet was killed) that night. There was never any evidence that linked them to the crime. One thing I’m glad of is that the Boulder (Colo.) DA exonerated the Ramsey family in the crime. And I know Patsy went to her grave with that truth in her heart.”
    — Beth Holloway, mother of Natalee Holloway, the Alabama teen who was abducted during a senior trip to Aruba: “I represented Beth Holloway to help her deal with the outrageous stories that were printed about the circumstances surrounding her daughter’s disappearance. She was tremendously distressed, as you’d expect, and she’s still looking for answers. She’s clinging to the slim hope that her daughter is still alive.”

    snip

    “If I believe in my clients, it inspires me to use my God-given talents to best serve them.”

    snip

    “Even though my father had committed this hideous crime, he was still my father, and I remember how two spectacular lawyers — Manley Brown and Hank O’Neal (both of Macon) — had done everything they could to help my father,” Wood said. “They did it out of a desire, I think, to help me, but that lesson stayed with me.
    “It confirmed what I’d felt all along, that this was my calling.”
    Case closed.

    Now THAT is funny. I needed that Punisher.

    Yeah, what a waste of air Limp is. I despise him as much as I despise his client Lizard Tongue.
    I despise the Ramseys and this is just my opinion

    Am I reading LW's quote correctly? What hideous crime did his father commit? It sounds like he became a defense attorney because he admired the defense attorneys who defended his father when his father committed a horrible crime.
    Of course, he mentions nothing about the fact that people who commit horrible crimes should be punished for those crimes, and that the job of a defense attorney used to be to see that their clients get a fair trial. That has been corrupted over the years, though, so that now even lying is condoned by defense attorneys, all that matters is getting your client acquitted, or even better, never being charged.

    Lin Wood's dad beat Lin's mother to death.

    "Wood says he can’t remember a time when he did not want to be a trial lawyer, and that contention was solidified by a tragedy in his own family. After returning home from a date as a 16-year-old high schooler, he discovered that his father had beaten his mother to death."

    Amazing. So, knowing his father had committed this horrible crime, he decided to become the type of lawyer who tries to get people like this acquitted.

    One of the seminal events of my conversion was watching him take on Nancy Grace and Marc Klaas and watching him threaten Marc. That was really the first time I saw what a scumwad piece of cr** he is.

    Did that article call Wood "ruggedly good looking?"

    I've seen my share of ruggedly good looking men, and Wood doesn't meet the criteria. He has the demeanor of Russia's Putin and the same cardboard face with the same blank expression.
    Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry,
    the philosophy which does not laugh,
    and the greatness which does not bow before children.

    And the same predatory instincts.

    Yes but he is a civil attorney I believe. He does it for the money, he even said so.
    I loved it when he and Wendy Murphy clashed on some show ,i don't remember which one ,and she pretty much showed she can't and won't be intimidated by the likes of him. Wendy Murphy became a hero of mine when I saw that. I admire her a great deal.
