Amir fires his old attorney and the family retains a new attorney. I am not personally aware of the details behind the firing or the qualifications of the new hire, but tell me you didn’t think of the scene in My Cousin Vinny where the other kid points at Joe Pesci and says “I want THAT guy.” 

again, it could just be my optimism leaking out here, but I have to believe this is a positive development. Every legal system is different, and they can be difficult to navigate without personal experience. Hopefully this attorney is more suited to where the Hekmatis are now in their legal struggle.
