Fifteen years ago, as we were interviewing lawyers of diverse stripe for our book Stop the Presses: The Crisis and Litigation PR DeskReference, we came up with an intriguing idea: why not talk to Albert Krieger for a chapter on effectively using television? We had certainly not forgotten his formidable on-screen presence in the early 1990s as Krieger defended his client, John Gotti, during the government’s relentless prosecution.

An intriguing idea and a good one. Not only did Krieger provide invaluable insights, he did so graciously, humorously, even modestly – a pointed contrast to the leonine character we so well remembered. To be sure, Albert Krieger personified the principle of zealous advocacy and I doubt there’s a prosecutor in this country who didn’t respect him.

He died on May 28 at the age of 96. A very well-lived life indeed.
