Ben Crump is often identified as the “Martin family attorney.” This implies that the Martin family always had some attorney they used for routine matters like setting up trust funds and managing their portfolio of real estate investments.
But that’s not the case at all. Ben crump is profiled in the FSU Law alumni magazine. He’s a partner in a successful “African-American” owned personal injury law firm, and he is longtime buddies with the Reverends Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson as seen in the many pictures accompanying the article.
So that explains why the threesome are involved together in the same case. They’re three race hustlers working together. Crump is probably not doing this for charity, but because he hopes to score a big lawsuit against somebody.
It should also be noted that Crump has never practiced criminal law, even though he has been putting himself forth as some sort of expert on the subject of George Zimmerman’s guilt.

This is a lost case, why would any rational individual hire a non-criminal attorney for a criminal case? It's an insult to all lawyers, especially since criminal vs. civil proceedings differ greatly.
It would have made more sense to hire a reputable criminal attorney to get the conviction then hire a civil liability attorney for compensation.
1. I’m pretty sure that Ben Crump insinuated himself and it was not the Martin family who used their high IQs to figure out the best attorney to hire.
2. Ben Crump’s angle may be to sue the homeowner association.
3. The Martins don't need a criminal attorney anyway. I haven't heard that they are being accused of any crimes.
