Here is the backstory of how I ended up on Crimewatch Daily. After defense lawyer John Henry Browne accused me of soliciting the media on behalf of my clients.
EB: We will be sitting down to interview Tracy and I wanted to see if your clients would be interested in speaking with us as well?
K3: My clients have elected to focus on the litigation for now and not do any additional interviews.
EB: Thank you for getting back to me. We have interviewed Tracy and her attorney and always prefer to present both sides. If your clients change their minds and would like a voice in this piece as well, please let me know asap.
K3: The children have declined to participate with further media pending resolution of the case. This included 48 hours who wanted to do an interview. And the last king 5 interview they did not participate in either. I do request that you sit down with me so that I can share their side of the story.
The show aired while the defendant, Browne, and her other lawyer Bob Siderius were sitting across from us in our office. Taking the depositions of our clients.

Am at Burlington for Vermont’s annual convention. Todd Schlossberg comes up to the podium to give my introduction. What he does next is the single best introduction I’ve ever witnessed at a trial lawyer seminar in my whole entire life. Am not exaggerating.
Afterwards, ask the audience if anyone knew he could sing, play, or write music. Only one person had a clue.
So if you are tasked with the job of introducing a speaker. I dare you to top this.
What the heck is a spreecast.
Why so glad you asked. But can’t quite explain it to you. Because still not exactly sure.
Mitch Jackson, asks me to do one with him. On voir dire.
First, have to get the spreecast up and going on computer. But the screen goes dark and there’s a box telling me to hit a button. Can’t hit the button because box won’t close. So call Mitch. He walks me through to the black screen and box. He says, hit the button in the box. I say – it isn’t a real box. He says – hit it. So I do and well…it is a real box. What a dummy.
So it is up and going and basically he’s on one side of the screen and I’m on the other. He’s a real pro. Has an ear piece and looks sharp. I on the hand, am bouncing on my ball and looking off to the side where I think the camera is.
Despite my personal challenges, we have the spreecast and it is quite fun. He is quite perky and a darn good interviewer. Kind of like a lawyer version of a decades younger Larry King.
Here’s the interview.
It’s the weekend and guess where I am. Yes. In the office. Working on a brief. Because two defendants think they can get out of rear ending cars on the freeway. This is the story of my morning’s misadventure.
Here are few details you will observe. First – yikes – no makeup. Second – am sitting on ball which apparently is bouncy. Third – have a runner’s tan line.
