Legendary defense attorney F. Lee Bailey is one of the best-known and most controversial figures in the practice of law. He has been involved with many of the most high profile trials in America.
In 1971, when F. Lee Bailey represented Captain Ernest Medina in his court-martial for his involvement in the incident at My Lai, he was already a prominent figure in criminal defense. Bailey had achieved fame for his successful defense in the retrial of Dr. Samuel Sheppard (“The Fugitive”) and the trial of the "Boston Strangler". In those and other publicized trials, F.

Simpson.
