Larry Schonbrun profile

Our primary editor, Walter Olson, is quoted in an East Bay Express profile of "The Spoiler", Larry Schonbrun, a former Neighborhood Legal Assistance Foundation lawyer who now specializes in taking on class action settlements where the plaintiffs' lawyers seek extravagant attorneys' fees. (E.g., May 28). "To date, Schonbrun has convinced judges to reduce such fees by more than $100 million." (Susan Goldsmith, "Class Action Warrior", Oct. 8).
