Stephen M. Komie
Criminal defense lawyers are a breed unto themselves and Steve Komie is one of the finest. Old school, Irish American, sporting white suits and always the gentleman, he immediately befriended me in the early 1990s when we met at numerous NACDL conferences around the country. A firm believer in legacy and tradition. We agreed on two portraits, one formal, powerfully speaking at the Illinois State Capitol Building and the other relaxed and very much at home in Dublin at an ABA litigation meeting.
