Thomas Lambert


Age: 69

Los Angeles trial attorney and lawyer who helped to convince a jury to hold O.J. Simpson responsible for the stabbing deaths of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman whose role in the Simpson civil case (a remix of the high-profile criminal case that had riveted the nation just two years earlier) pushed him directly into the spotlight even though Simpson had been acquitted of murder in the 1995 criminal trial when the wrongful-death case swung the other way with jurors pinning the killings on Simpson and awarding the victims' families $33.5 million.
