Dean Strang, the bespectacled Wisconsin lawyer with a gift for elocution and a firm grasp on ethics, became the hero of the Netflix docuseries Making a Murderer, garnering a large and passionate fan base. One half of Steven Avery's defense team, along with fellow unwitting heartthrob Jerome (Jerry) Buting, he was the moral compass that restored our faith when the criminal justice system tore it down and public opinion is unwavering when it comes to the appeal of Strang.  

When the directors of Making a Murderer set out to tell Avery's story they inadvertently made a heartthrob out of a lawyer - no easy feat. Throughout the series Strang swooped in with his wings of justice and said what we were all thinking and for that he earned a spot in our hearts. This list includes some of the best quotes from Mr. Strang who proved that getting lawyered could be downright sexy.

    He Genuinely Cares About His Client

    “I got to tell you… if i’m going to be perfectly candid. A big part of me that really hopes that Steve Avery is guilty of this crime. Because the thought of him being innocent of this crime and sitting in prison again for something he didn’t do - and now for the rest of his life without a prayer of parole - I can’t take that.”
