In contrast, Brogdon brings alive the flotsam and jetsam of society-the homeless, the developmentally disabled, the prostitute, the pervert, and the substance abuser....He does this with a humor and with empathy."

He is often a guest speaker on legal topics, both nationally and internationally, and has appeared as a TV legal analyst on the Nancy Grace Show, CNN, and MSNBC.
