In this March 3, 2014, courtroom sketch from files, defense attorney Stanley Cohen, right, sits next to a translator during the jury selection for Cohen's client Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, left, Osama bin Laden's son-in-law, during Abu Ghaith's trial in New York on charges that he conspired to kill Americans and support terrorists in his role as al-Qaida's spokesman after the Sept. 11 attacks. It can be an uncomfortable life for any defense attorney representing unpopular clients, but lawyers who agree to speak on behalf of people accused of plotting to kill Americans in terrorist attacks walk difficult road. Cohen says, “You get stigmatized. Folks avoid you. You get ostracized. It’s terrible for a mate to see terrible publicity, to see you vilified, to avoid social settings because you know it will lead to confrontations.” (AP Photo/Elizabeth Williams, File)
