In his four-decades long career practicing law, A. Dwight Pettit has been involved in a variety of high-profile cases, ranging from civil rights litigation to infamous murder trials.

In his new autobiography, "Under Color of Law," Pettit chronicles his life  in the courtroom, from his first encounter with the legal system when his father successfully challenged school segregation, to his involvement with lawsuits involving the likes of Mike Tyson and former Baltimore Raven Ray Lewis.
