F. Lee Bailey (born June 10, 1933, in Waltham, Massachusetts) is an American lawyer. He served as a defense lawyer in the Sam Sheppard re-trial, the court martial of Captain Ernest Medina, and the O. J. Simpson trial. Bailey's cross-examination of disgraced LAPD detective Mark Fuhrman is widely regarded as one of the greatest cross-examinations in modern American jurisprudence.
Bailey has also had a number of visible defeats, legal controversies, and personal trouble with the law. In spite of his difficulties, Bailey still has a reputation for being one of the most successful defense attorneys in American legal history.
