Despite the fact that his client, Drew Peterson, has been arrested and sits in the Will County Adult Detention Facility in Joliet, Joel Brodsky remains in New York City for a mother’s day holiday with his wife. As of this morning, he still has not spoken with his client.
Last night on Geoff Pinkus’ Chicago Overnight radio show, Geoff recalled Joel and Drew’s demeanor when they appeared on his show on March 15th. Pinkus was surprised by Joel’s demands to plug not only his legal practice but also the wings at a sports bar he owned.
Pinkus says his impression was that Joel Brodsky was more concerned with promoting himself than in defending his client. He couldn’t understand why Joel seemed to have no control over his client, and questioned why he stayed on as Drew’s attorney when it was so obvious that the man was out of control. “To me, Joel Brodsky is not doing Drew Peterson or himself any favors”, Pinkus stated.
Drew Peterson appeared in court today at 1:30 pm CDT in Joliet, Ill. His arraignment for first-degree murder in the death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, has been continued until Monday, May 18.
Joel Brodsky appeared on all three network morning news programs this morning in New York. He will also do interviews with WGN TV in Chicago, MSNBC, WLS Radio and WFLD (Fox) Chicago.
