Even in Pennsylvania, judges in the outlying counties will often favor local attorneys over Philadelphia lawyers.

    Local judges like to look out for their own. This guy isn't quite a local, but he is close, and he seems to be a powerful defense attorney in the area. You want to squash this as quickly as possible. Juries are a nightmare, completely unpredictable. The best case scenario for Ben is if this lawyer can prevent charges from being filed.

    Outstanding point... just ask Vincent LaGuardia Gambini. "Did you say 'Utes?'"

    My uncle has represented some high profile athletes and politicians but they have all had cases in large cities or the state capital.

    Ben is in THE WORST STATE for sexual assault charges.. being a yankee doesn't help at all... It makes sense to get a Georgia lawyer for a small town case like this.
