One of the most successful trial lawyers of our time, Kathleen Zellner is known for winning multi-million dollar medical malpractice settlements for her clients and freeing innocent people from Illinois' death row. A made-for-tv attorney, Zellner once saved a man on death row by coaxing a woman on the stand to confess that she, and not Zellner's client, had committed the murder.

Zellner is fiercely competitive in law and sport - Masters Swimming, in particular, and a bit of pistol shooting, as well. In 1999, she tried six cases in less than a year ''and they were all multimillion dollar verdicts,'' she told LawCrossing.

Three of those cases involved medical malpractice, one was a rape trial, one a civil rights case and one a murder trial. The five civil jury verdicts totaled $15.8 million.

''I think I'm the only person in the United States who has done this,'' she said of the six trials. ''I really didn't have any choice, because I was made no offers on any of them and they were ready for trial.''
