Benjamin Brafman

Attorney Benjamin Brafman came to my New York studio for a shoot for YRB Magazine six years ago. He was a small man, impeccably groomed, wearing the most beautiful suit and cuff links. Powerful and charming in person, his clientele includes Sean “P-Diddy” Combs, Jay Z, mafia hitman Antony Senter, nighclub impresario Peter Gatien, Michael Jackson, and Dominique Strauss- Kahn.

Strauss-Kahn hired Brafman three months ago after his arrest on sexual assault charges and today the Manhattan DA has decided to ask a judge to dismiss the case.

Brafman, a self described “White, Jewish lawyer’ was immortalized by Jay-Z in “Welcome To New York City” : ‘Got Brafman defendin’ me / ‘Cause NY will miss me / If I’m locked in a penitentiary.’
