Tony Serra & Paulette Frankl: Lust For Justice: Radical Life & Law of Tony Serra
KPFA Radio 94.1FM presents

Lust for Justice, The Radical Life & Law of J. Tony Serra
Hosted by Brian Edwards-Tiekert

Tony Serra is a living embodiment of the anti-establishment hero. After graduating from UC Berkeley's Boalt School of Law in 1961, he began his career as a deputy district attorney for Alameda County. Rapidly disillusioned with the justice system, he became a private defense lawyer and has since become notorious for representing - and winning - cases on behalf of the downtrodden: drug dealers, Hell's Angels, Black Panthers, even the Symbionese Liberation Army. His defense of a Korean man wrongfully convicted in a Chinatown gang murder inspired the film 'True Believer.' Ever the bohemian, Serra owns no property and doesn't have a checking account. He takes most cases for free. His estimated net worth is a mere $1000. As a tax resister opposed to military expenditures, he has not paid taxes for two decades.

Serra has spent his life defending society's outcasts, including among many others: Huey Newton (Black Panthers), the White Panthers, Russell Little & Kathleen Soliah ( SLA), the Hell's AngelsChol Soo Lee,Hooty Croy,Ellie Nesler,Bear Lincoln, Judi Bari and Daryl Cherney.
Author/artist Paulette Frankl followed Serra in and out of the courtroom for more than a decade to capture in words and images this unique legal warrior.

"I am a creation of the Sixties. The greatest influence on me was the ideology of the Sixties: Anti-materialism, brotherhood, nonracism, love. Those are things I still believe in."   J. Tony Serra
