New Poll Shows Most U.S. Lawyers Would Not Represent Bin Laden in Court

| From

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Sept. 7 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- As we mark the sixth anniversary of 9/11, a new poll conducted by Nader Anise Lawyer Marketing asks lawyers whether they would represent the World's Most Wanted Man, Osama Bin Laden, in court if he were found alive. (The assumption of course being that a criminal prosecution would ultimately ensue.)

Caption: Nader Anise Lawyer MarketingBetween January, 2007 and August, 2007, the following question was posed to 940 attorneys practicing in diverse specialties in the U.S.:

"If Osama bin Laden were captured today, and you were asked to join his legal defense team (regardless of the type of law you practice), would you? Assume U.S. law applies."

Of the attorneys surveyed, the majority of lawyers - 55.2% -- said they would not agree to be bin Laden's lawyer or part of bin Laden's defense team.

Attorney Nader Anise, President of Nader Anise Lawyer Marketing, says, "When we conducted this poll, we didn't know what to expect. The lawyers who participated are all students of mine - and I teach lawyers how to make maximum money in their practice. You might think that's all that matters to them - huge profits - but it's not. Morals and principles are also important."

The most popular "no" answers were, "No, I would decline for moral reasons" and "No, my life and safety, and my family members' lives and safety, would be at risk." The least popular reason for declining to represent bin Laden was, "No, because we would surely lose the case."

Interestingly, nearly 9% of all those polled selected the option, "No, he should have every hair on his beard plucked... and then he should be dunked head-first into a huge tub of boiling oil and fried ALIVE."

A sizable minority, however - 44.7% -- said they would be willing represent bin Laden in court.

"The number one "yes" response was, "Yes, even HE is innocent until proven guilty." In fact, at 19.2%, it is the top answer generated in the entire poll.

Other popular "yes" responses: "Yes, the publicity I would receive can lead to fame and fortune" and "Yes, it would be an amazing challenge and opportunity to make history."
