ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the career of lawyer Bobby Lee Cook of the U.S. During the past six decades, Cook has tried thousands of cases, including more than 300 murder trials, in more than 40 states and several countries. He's represented moonshiners and money launderers, bootleggers and bank fraud schemers. Cook says that the law practice has changed so much, and law is viewed as a business these days--not as a noble profession. His fame grew in 1975 when he represented on appeal seven men accused of killing Atlanta pathologists. But, Cook also has a history of representing unpopular clients.
