Guess Who Is Lawyer of the Year?

Our boy Fitz is getting some notice. And not just from the folks at FDL.

At 44, Fitzgerald is, to some, exacting and thorough. To others, he is perhaps obsessive and relentless. But it is this attention to detail and his formidable memory that many observers say make him a tough and level-headed adversary….

"If I were someone who was a bad guy, I would not want him on my trail," Cohn said.

You hear that, Rover? It’s the integrity, stupid.

More on Pat Fitzgerald’s award from the National Law Journal can be found here. Sometimes, it seems, the good guys do win. Good on ya.
