Civil-rights lawyer Ben Crump didn’t hear right away about the unarmed black teen killed Saturday afternoon in Missouri. The first text message he saw was from a staff member in his office, Dazi Lenoir. He could tell she was distraught. Back in 2012, Crump had represented the Trayvon Martin family in the prominent case that increased Crump’s national profile. Crump now may be the most high-profile civil rights attorney in the country. This week the 44-year-old Florida State University law school graduate was heard and seen on every major network, standing next to the slain teen’s parents and calling for the Ferguson police chief to identify the officer involved in Brown’s shooting.
