Clarence Darrow

Clarence Darrow (April 18, 1857 - March 13, 1938) was the lawyer that defended Leopold and Loeb in their trial for murder and defended John T. Scopes in the so-called "Monkey Trial" on teaching evolution, opposing prosecutor William Jennings Bryan.

A story often told about Darrow is his quip to a client, who, after winning a case, said, "How can I ever show my appreciation, Mr. Darrow?" Darrow replied, "Ever since the Phoenicians invented money, there has been only one answer to that question."
