In a rare interview, Daniel Petrocelli discusses his role at the center of  2 of America’s most publicized trials in the last 10 years, 1)  Representing former Enron Chief Executive Jeffrey Skilling as well as  2) Representing Fred Goldman, the father of murder victim Ron Goldman, in a wrongful death civil suit against O.J. Simpson.  Petrocelli successfully argued the case, in spite of Simpson's 1995 acquittal in the related 1994 criminal murder case, and a jury awarded the Goldman family $8.5 million dollars in damages. His book about the case, Triumph of Justice: The Final Judgment on the Simpson Saga (1998), written with co-author Peter Knobler, became a national bestseller.

Dan is Chair of O’Melveny & Myers’ General Trial and Litigation Practice, a member of the firm's Policy Committee, and a member of The American Lawyer's 2004 "Litigation Department of the Year." He is a frequent national commentator on trials and other legal issues, as well as a featured speaker on legal issues at business groups, bar and judges associations, and citizens groups.
