Attorney Christina Rainville says the most notorious victory in her legal career — the ruling that declared Lisa Michelle Lambert innocent of murder and set her free — also cost her a job when Duane Morris & Heckscher reneged on its promise to hire her as a partner after Pennsylvania Attorney General Michael Fisher objected.

Rainville, who is still with Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis, filed suit yesterday in U.S. District Court accusing Fisher and Duane Morris of conspiring to violate her First Amendment rights.
