Ashcraft v. Conoco - Facing Off With Big Oil Over MTBE Contamination
"In the Conoco case, I represented real people who couldn't afford expensive lawyers. And I took on big corporations for those real people. And I'll never forget, the second day of trial -- and these people were not wealthy by any stretch of the imagination -- they brought me a gold-plated guardian lapel pin. It was a guardian angel. And gave it to me. And I wore it for the rest of that trial. And I have worn it every trial since then, not on my lapel because it's not for show, but just to know this is my mission to be a voice for those who otherwise would not have a voice."
