Who could it be?Above the Law has announced its Lawyer of the Year, based on a reader poll. And it’s exactly who you’d expect.

The lowest tally of votes? I would have expected Marc Dreier (485 votes), but it was Rod Blagojevich with 96 votes. One hopes Blago’s voters were either joking, or else bucking for a US Senate seat.

There was no mention of my favorite disgraced lawyer, Jack Thompson, who was finally disbarred this year.


So who won? Which runner up from last year got the top vote of 753? I hope you can figure it out — but if not, check out the original post.

Congrats to the winner! Your Lawyer of the Year prize? A free house to live in, and the responsibility of repairing the economy, defeating terror, restoring civil liberties, halting global warming, and repairing 300 years of racial tension. Good luck!
