This really shouldn't surprise anyone. A lot of you guys on here get so caught up with the elitist USN&WR academic rankings that you forget about what really translates to real-world courtroom success.  There's a lot to be said for personality, charisma, and physical attractiveness in one's advocacy skills.

Well, you know what they say; the best lawyers don't come from the Ivy League schools.

I think the smartest lawyers come from Ivy League schools. There's no denying that.
