What do all these people have in common: Shawn Chapman Holley, Laura Wasser, Bert Fields, Gloria Allred, Harland Braun, Tom Meserear, Blair Berk, Lisa Bloom and Marty Singer? In addition to being high-profile lawyers to the stars, they are also part of CNN.com's 9-part series profiling celeb attorneys.
The profiles, which cover the attorneys behind celebrity clients such as Lindsay Lohan and Mel Gibson, are more of an insight into life as a celeb lawyer than anything else. Looking at the intersection between law, media, and celebrity personalities, the series discusses current clients, the attorney's take on celebrity justice, and how each lawyer came to practice in the niche filed. With the advent of TMZ and other media outlets, celebrity lawyers are becoming increasingly recognizable personalities independent of their clients -- the series shows how this has changed the practice and the approach to lawyering.
