"Big Case for Small-Time Attorney"

That's the headline of the Wall Street Journal article about Art Folsom, the attorney representing accused terrorist Najibullah Zazi. According to the article, Mr. Folsom "has made a living on drug-possession and drunk-driving cases, along with the odd divorce." In addition

Veteran criminal defense attorneys have been unusually blunt in assessing Mr. Folsom's qualifications. "Mr. Folsom is just in over his head," said prominent Denver defense lawyer Daniel Recht, citing Mr. Folsom's performance so far and minimal experience in federal court.

Mr. Folsom says he "won't abandon" his client, even though the client has no money to pay him.
