Karisa King: Express-News
When it comes to posting bail bonds, few commercial bondsmen or lawyers rival Kelly Green.
Since she entered the trade in 2001, she has posted $26.5 million in bonds, rocketing to the top of the list of attorneys who work in the controversial and high-risk business.
Her popularity among jail inmates fuels a bustling legal practice that racked up 430 cases last year. It also has led Green into murky ethical territory, clashes with fellow attorneys and bonds that frequently went bad.
