What do the Unabomber Ted Kaczynski, Olympic park bomber Eric Rudolph, child-murderer Susan Smith, and Gabby Giffords' shooter Jared Lee Loughner all have in common?

Attorney Judy Clarke has saved all their lives.

Clarke, 60, is a legend among defense attorneys. She has represented some of the most heinous killers in America, steers their cases away from the media, and quietly rescues them from death row. And this is why Quora users voted her one of the most "badass" lawyers in the country (via Business Insider).
