Dude shouts out lawyer with face tattoo who saved him from jail

Don't judge a lawyer by their ink.

It’s well known that public defenders are underpaid and overworked. It’s also understood that anyone who finds themselves represented by one in court is facing a desperate situation. So when New York designer Lambo Keem came up on charges last year and saw who was in his corner, he didn’t hold out much hope.

The tweet went massively viral at the time, and a year later, Keem made restitution by noting that thanks to his tatted lawyer, he actually hadn’t spent a single day in jail. 

It’s nice to think that she never even saw these tweets but at least five times a day inexplicably gets a call from some precinct or other because an arrested suspect is demanding the public defender with the face tattoo. She’s a legend written in ink.
