Thomas Anthony Durkin writes
If you wanted to learn criminal law in Chicago, Binyon’s restaurant was as far as you had to go in the early 1970’s. It was only a few doors down Plymouth Court from the United States District Court Building. In those days, anyone who was anyone in the federal trial bar could be found there most nights. Jim Thompson was making a huge name for himself as United States Attorney by prosecuting cops and politicians, and his entourage of young stars like Dan Webb, Tony Valukas, Ty Fahner, Jim Montana, Matt Lyndon, and a host of others could always be found drinking right alongside defense lawyers such as Ed Calihan, Anna Lavin, Julius Echles, Allan Ackerman, Jo-Anne Wolfson, Tom Decker, George Murtaugh, Bill Martin, and Jim Shellow (when he was in town from Milwaukee).
