Farewell To Bill Moffitt

Today, William B. Moffitt will be buried in Washington, D.C.. Bill was a friend and one of the greatest trial attorneys of his generation. He was only 60. He will be deeply missed.wbmoffitt

Bill was the former president of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and handled some of the greatest criminal cases of the last three decades. One of those cases was his incredible victory in securing acquittals for Dr. Sami Al-Arian in Tampa, Florida. I currently represent Dr. Al-Arian and I worked closely with Bill in the case where he offered important evidence and was expected to be called as a witness.

Bill was an inspiration to many in my generation. Like the 1968 Mustang, he was a classic and genuine item. He was a master in the courtroom where his booming voice famously resonated with jurors across the country. He was a natural in the courtroom and assembled a career that could only be envied by his colleagues. The bar lost one of its greatest voices for justice and equality. Bill was the best of us and will remain the gold standard for trial attorneys for years to come.

A memorial service is scheduled for Saturday, May 2, at Howard University Law School’s Dunbarton Chapel, 2900 Van Ness Street N.W., Washington, D.C.

  2. Mojo,
    It really depresses me to see how a lot of guys are socialized into this attitude towards women. When I see a beer commercial that implies it’s better to be drinking brews with your “Buds” than pay attention to those hot girls eying you from across a room because you’re drinking a Coors, it pisses me off. Especially, because as a sports fan those ads and the ones telling me I’ll be more of a man because I drive the right car, ruin my enjoyment of the game.

    Actually, I’m more in a foul mood because JT posted this as a show of respect for a friend colleague and seemingly a great man and this bozo is advertising his pathetic website. Definitely classless and exhibiting dumb judgment.

  3. Mike S. –

    It appears you may know a thing or two about psychology, my friend.

    Not that I wasn’t already aware …

    And yes, respect can be a powerful aphrodisiac.

    But little minds seldom seem to get this sort of thing.

  4. bababob,
    Went to your site. You are very adept at setting up straw men
    (women actually to shoot down). Valerie Solanis, really? The crazy young woman who shot Andy Warhol is a feminist icon? It is you and people like you, the unaware misogynists of the world, who hate and fear women, yet don’t even know it. Real men don’t fear feminism, but embrace it. Those men, uncomfortable in their sexuality, or who view women as objects of gratification join in sites like yours to huddle together in fear of your mythic mothers. Then too there are the religious zealots who believe man was put in charge of women.
    All of it is related to doubting one’s own sexuality in one form or another. Real men see women as partners in life, not chattel. Some of the smartest and wisest people I’ve known in my life are women and my kind of attitude also has made for a damned good sex life. A rather sad show your site presents.
