Foster Boy

Michael Trainer is a lawyer at the trial center. In this case, the for-profit Foster care agency placed a well-known sex offender with his young client, Jamal. In the same foster family, it caused disastrous consequences. Michael is a successful litigation attorney with a long career in protecting corporate clients, and he has been unable to recognize the real losses they may cause. Before the judge forced him to accept Jamal, he did not want to have anything to do with Jamal’s case.

At first, he saw Jamal as a crude African American young man trying to make company profits. However, when Jamal refused to settle the case with any amount, Michael started acting seriously. As their work jointly revealed the horrific depth of the corrupt and abusive for-profit Foster care institution, Michael transformed from a reluctant defender to a fierce fighter in the fight for justice.
