News: Karra Porter Quoted in Article About "Legal Bulldog" Marcus Mumford
// Oct 7, 2016
C&J white collar defense attorney Karra J. Porter was recently quoted in an article about fellow Utah defense attorney Marcus Mumford, who the article has dubbed a "legal bulldog." According to the article, Mumford, who is currently representing Ammon Bundy in a federal jury trial in Oregon over the armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, has "eclipsed" his client, as well as the other defendants, when it comes to theatrics in the courtroom. Karra, who has worked with Mumford several times over the years, told the article's author that "it was gutsy to go into trial work" given the fact that Mumford suffers from a speech impediment. "It tells you a lot about his personality that he said, 'Forget that, I'm going to court,'" Karra said. Karra also recounted that Mumford has given presentations at conferences titled, "The Stuttering Lawyer," turning what some may see as an apparent weakness into a strength. When asked about Mumford's intellect, Porter responded that it is "off the chart." Read more about Karra's comments here.
