Super Lawyers
William C. Altreuter

I like the fact that Obama invoked my favorite fictional lawyer in his speech on race. Gavin Stevens is a complicated man. He's been out of Yoknapatawpha County, and is frequently scorned by its denizens, but he is an honorable cat, dependable, and forthright. He is an excellent lawyer, it should go without saying, but he resembles Puddin'head Wilson, a colleague at the Bar in that neither receives the respect their intelligence and integrity should have earned them. Stevens stays in Yoknapatawpha County because he is a romantic, and because he wants to see what will happen next, I think.
