  • Lenell Rae Nussbaum

    Gil Levy is an extraordinary lawyer. He is brilliant and determined. He is one of my few colleagues who has argued a case in the United States Supreme Court -- and won! -- in a death penalty case, no less. His work is known and respected in federal and state courts. He works very hard for his clients and does what needs to be done -- often with creativity and imagination. I heartily endorse Gil and his work.
