  • James Anthony Shapiro

    I endorse this lawyer's work. In 2004, Mr. Brindley was graduated in the top 10% and Law Review from the University of Iowa College of Law. There he not only won two consecutive national mock trial championships, but coached two consecutive teams to national championships as well. His academic and mock trial credentials are obviously nonpareil. In practice, Mr. Brindley won a rare federal acquittal on all counts in only his second jury trial. He hung a jury (universally considered a victory for the defense) in his third. He continued to win verdicts on lesser charges thereafter. He has quickly become the fastest rising star in the federal criminal defense bar. Because of his success, he has earned the ire of many Assistant U.S. Attorneys, who are not used to losing and facing such a vigorous defense, and the admiration of the federal criminal defense trial bar. If there is ever another Clarence Darrow, Mr. Brindley will be it.
