Righting-the-Wrong

John Q. Kelly, a lawyer with the venerable firm Ivey, Barnum & O'Mara in Greenwich, specializes in wrongful deaths. Very wrongful deaths. Kelly represented the survivors of Nicole Brown Simpson, allegedly knifed to death by her ex-husband, O. J.; of Natalee Holloway, vanished and believed murdered during a high school class trip to Aruba; and of Kathleen Savio, drowned in her bathtub by ex-husband Drew Peterson.

These notorious cases put Kelly on national TV and made him the most sought-after wrongful death lawyer in the land. Curiously, though, he tends to fly under fame's hypersensitive radar. People don't recognize his name or stop him on the street, and there are virtually no news articles that shed light on his illustrious career. Don't imagine that Kelly is displeased by any of this. He gently resisted our interview request and then expressed a desire to get out of his photo shoot. The only way to explain the paradoxa TV personality who doesn't invite public notice—is to point out that in twenty-first century America, television is sometimes necessary to further his clients' cases.
