Criminal defense attorney Albert J. Krieger died in Miami on Thursday, with his wife Irene Stoller Krieger at his side. He was 96.

Krieger’s cases were the stuff of legend, inspiring movies like “The Godfather” and “The French Connection.” Among his most notorious clients: New York crime family bosses “The Teflon Don” John Gotti and Joseph “Joe Bananas” Bonanno, and Miami “cocaine cowboys” Sal Magluta and Willie Falcon.
