Bobby Lee Cook at Mass Torts Meeting-Portrait by Trevor Goring grows evermore popular

(Las Vegas), —  Highly respected and internationally renowned trial attorney Bobby Lee Cook completes the spectacularly high profile line up of speakers at this spring’s Mass Torts Made Perfect conference at Encore, Wynn Las Vegas, March 19th-20th.

Taking the podium along with legendary legal luminaries Gerry Spence and Morris Dees, Bobby Lee Cook is expected to bring down the house with his fiery rhetoric, penetrating humour and brilliantly perceptive insights into current and longstanding issues of civil and criminal justice. Organizers Mike Papantonio and John Morgan have also invited baseball great Pete Rose as guest luncheon speaker as they launch the inaugural induction of the American Trial Lawyers Hall of Fame.

Widely regarded as the real life model for the highly popular television series Matlock (played by Andy Griffith on the NBC series, 1986-92) Bobby Lee Cook has practised law since 1949 from the small Georgia town of Sommerville, neatly balancing a down to earth, no-nonsense sense of belonging to a small community with an international practice at the highest level.

In 2001 The Georgia Association of Criminal defence Lawyers under the guidance of Antitrust Lawyer, Nick Lotito, commissioned a portrait of Bobby Lee Cook from the international portrait artist Trevor Goring. That portrait (pictured here) now hangs in the Georgia Supreme Court Building in Atlanta, a testament to the enormous respect afforded this native son of Georgia. At the unveiling of the painting, Bobby Lee Cook was heard to say “It’s better to be hung IN the Georgia Supreme Court than BY the Georgia Supreme Court” and indeed over the years his portrait has engendered great praise, affection and enduring popularity for the Dean of Georgia Trial Attorneys.

Recent statistics on Google web, image and news searches reveal more traffic for Bobby Lee Cook than such mythic legal figures as Atticus Finch, Clarence Darrow and the Babylonian Law maker Hammurabi! With a web profile like that, says artist Trevor Goring, it is no wonder that sales of Bobby Lee Cook prints, posters and note-cards are brisk and steadily increasing over the years. There is a potent charisma about Bobby Lee Cook that is mesmerising and highly motivational – the Mass Torts Made perfect attendees are in for a treat.
