Law, “Down Neck” Style, in Iraq.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 8:40 pm

I came across an article about Paul Bergrin, a Brooklyn-born lawyer who practices in the Ironbound section of Newark (called, “Down Neck”** by folks from around here) who is representing Javal Davis, one of the six soldiers charged in the Abu Ghraib Prison “scandal.” No stranger to the military, Mr. Bergrin holds the rank of Major in the Army Reserves. Mr. Bergrin’s particulars are here and those of his firm are here.

This could be interesting. Stay tuned.

**A colorful and still-vibrant section of Newark in which I was born and spent my earliest years, as well as a good deal of my time through my adulthood, because my grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins (including Cousin Jack) lived there through the sixties. The referenced site was maintained by Doris Campbell Hector, who passed away on June 2, 2002 at age 81.

  1. Paul has been a friend of mine for over 20 years. Tough as nails, and not afraid to walk the line. Some like him, some hate him, but everyone recognizes his tenacity. Will do anything to win. A hired gun.
