Description

A lawyer leaves his house in his newly purchased Mercedes and heads to his law firm, where he helps families of federal prisoners, desperate for downward departures and resentencings. What's different? The "lawyer" is a federal prisoner, his "house" is a halfway house and his new Mercedes was purchased by the bogus law firm he created with his mother to take hundreds of thousands of dollars from people, including an NBA basketball player who thought he was investing through the "attorney".
