Vincent de Moro-Giafferi
Birth: Jun. 6, 1878
Death: Feb. 15, 1956

Criminal Lawyer. Vincent served in the French army in World War I, and was an officer of the Legion of Honor. He held the Croix de guerre. One of the most famous criminal lawyers of his era, he acquired a reputation that was global in scope. Courtrooms were packed with other lawyers, and the general public, who would come to see his skills on display. Vincent was best known for a case that never actually went to trial, a Polish-German assassin Herschel Grynszpan, who was accused of murdering minor German diplomat Ernst vom Rath. Vincent was preparing his defense when the Germans invaded France. The only case Vincent was known to have ever lost was Henri Désiré Landru, a modern-day Bluebeard. (bio by: Shock)
