The New Dream Team: This Lawyer Is the Johnnie Cochran for Messy, High-Profile Airplane Incidents

Now you know who to call if your confrontation goes viral.

Let's flash back a couple decades. Back in the '90s, if you were involved in an intensely high-profile legal situation that inspired very impassioned opinions on both sides, you'd look to the so-called "Dream Team" including Johnnie Cochran and Robert Kardashian. Now, in an age when bizarre and majorly newsmaking airplane incidents dominate the news, there's a new guy you want to call: Thomas Demetrio.

He's the lawyer who is now representing both a passenger infamously dragged off an overbooked United Airlines flight, as well as the latest passenger embroiled in viral-video drama: a mom who got in a physical altercation with a flight attendant over a stroller on an American Airlines flight. 
Reports as to the specifics of the latest incident vary, but here's what the video shows:

Demetrio told CNBC today that he will represent both passengers, noting of the latest case: "Her tale is compelling. The video is a microcosm of what's wrong with the airline industry today."

So if you find yourself embroiled in some legal drama surrounding the indignities of modern air travel, now you know who to call... smack dab in that very niche.
