Some lawyers earn their juicy headlines by representing pop-culture-icons-turned-murderers.
Others beef-up their brand name by defending the rich and infamous.
And some lawyers simply accuse Barack Obama of perpetrating unspeakable war crimes.
Little-known Spanish lawyer Daniel Fiol has lodged a complaint with the International Criminal Court accusing Obama of crimes against humanity, according to the UK's The Daily Telegraph.
The complaint alleges that the May assassination of Osama bin Laden was a violation of both the Geneva Conventions and Pakistani sovereignty. Fiol clarified his position by stating bin Laden should have instead stood trial for "some terrible and appalling atrocities," and then went on to awkwardly joke about definitely not being on Al Qaeda's payroll.
