About Me

I fight for people's rights because otherwise I would just give in and be a cynic.  A while ago I learned to walk barefoot on hot coals to help discipline my mind. Compared with some courtrooms, that was easy!

  • Andrew Mishlove

    I endorse Charles Kenyon. I recall that that in the late 1970s, when I was a law student intern, learning criminal defense in Madison, Wisconsin, I would see Mr. Kenyon fighting for his clients in court. I was impressed then, and I am still impressed. He is an intelligent and dedicated advocate. I am happy to make this endorsement. Andrew Mishlove
