So, while I disagree with this attorney’s allegiances (especially his calling the Giants’ lineup “hapless souls”, see footnote 9), this […]


Michael Goldsmith

I, like many others, am mourning the loss of Professor Michael Goldsmith this week. He was a true “can do” lawyer, like he always taught his students to be.
