It is quite the blessing when one can find and claim their true calling in life, and more often than not it will lead down the path of success.

When looking for examples of such good fortune, one need not look further than criminal defense attorney Roy Black. Just the mere mention of his name conjures up a roster of A-list celebrity faces. He has represented the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Marv Albert, Kelsey Grammer, Mary Hart, Peter Max, Dennis Rodman, and our own cover subject for last year’s June/July edition, Helio Castroneves.

The latest news from his firm is that the great Mr. Black is at it again, this time taking on John Goodman, the founder of the International Polo Club Palm Beach in Wellington, as a client. News came out today that Goodman has been charged in connection with the traffic accident and death of Scott Wilson on February 12, 2009.

Black’s firm released this official statement hours ago:

“Mr. Goodman intends to vigorously defend himself against the criminal charges while continuing to do all within his power to minimize any further suffering by the Wilson family. After thoroughly reviewing the facts available to us, the defense team believes that the arrest warrant and charges reveal only a part of the whole story. Mr. Goodman is entitled to his day in court. We ask that the public and the media not rush to judgment until all of the facts are known.”
