Attorney Howard Weitzman, whose clients included Michael Jackson, O.J. Simpson, Marlon Brando, Morgan Freeman and Arnold Schwarzenegger died Wednesday at age 81.
Weitzman died peacefully at his Los Angeles home surrounded by family and listening to music from his favorite artists, Neil Young, Led Zepplin and Joni Mitchell, his son Jed told the music industry trade newspaper Billboard.
Weitzman represented Simpson until shortly after the football legend was arrested in connection with the killings of his ex-wife and her friend, Ron Goldman. Weitzman claimed to have introduced Simpson to members of the “Dream Team,” including Johnnie Cochran, before removing himself from the case.
Weitzman is survived by his wife, Margaret, and sons, Jed and Armen.
