Browne has had remarkable results for some of his clients, but his aggressiveness can also rub prosecutors and judges the wrong way. In a recent Washington state case, a mistrial was declared after Browne accused the judge of incompetence and a juror expressed a desire to punch the lawyer in the nose. (AP Photo/Ted S.
