In the wake of the pay-to-play scandal that sank a Congressional campaign of a favored Connecticut candidate, Connecticut Magazine asked political figures and leaders in Connecticut for their opinions on how to end such corruption.

Betty Harris couldn’t find a lawyer to take her cases. She had an aging copyright infringement case against a major multinational entertainment corporation, and an unrelated family matter. She needed the copyright case to pay for the other issue. Most lawyers wouldn’t open a file without a retainer, and even so, many shied away from confronting this multinational. Ken Krayeske did. Within a year, we obtained a federal judgment ordering the corporation to pay her. Success for clients is about lawyers taking informed risks.
