Article: 4 Questions with “LOREDANA, ESQ.” Star Booker Cole

Booker Cole, co-star of LOREDANA, ESQ., digs into his past as a patrol officer for the LAPD and discusses what makes him an integral member of Loredana’s team.

SundanceTV: How did you meet Loredana?

BC: I met Loredana several years ago, while I was working as a patrol officer. I was dispatched to Loredana’s office to discuss a client issue. The client had been a victim of a crime in another jurisdiction. During our initial meeting I learned that she had been a police officer and she had a thorough understanding of what I could do. I was a licensed attorney at that time and was very impressed with the career transition she had made. Robert, her significant other, was also in the office when I met her. Rocco had not even been thought of yet. We all got along so well that we maintained contact over the years.

This week’s episode is bedrock Loredana: Ferocious. Fangs out. Focused. And on fire!

Up first is Mike Mingolello. Mike is an old family friend of LD. Everyone calls him “Chunk.” (Don’t ask me. I don’t know why.) Late one night, LD gets a call from her brother Robert saying that Chunk has been arrested. (Rob says he doesn’t know what the charges are when he calls.) He needs our help. This is a first for Chunk. No prior arrests. Completely out of character. Anyway, LD and Robert bail Chunk out, and as they are walking away from the police station, Chunk gives his side of the story: Late last night, just off work, he stops by an ATM to get some cash. He then gets so spooked when he is approached by three guys that he pulls out his concealed firearm and chases the guys off. Well, the three guys decide to call the cops and when the cops arrive, Chunk gets spooked again and takes off. A police chase ensues and somehow a police officer is assaulted and a police dog is bitten! (He bit a canine with his canines!)

SundanceTV: You began your career with the LAPD. What made you switch from cop to defense attorney?

LN: The LAPD was always just a stepping stone for me. My goal was always to be an attorney. I detoured into police work to experience criminal cases from the ground floor. When I was a cop I investigated crimes and arrested people. I acquired knowledge that my law books could never teach me. This past experience gives me an edge when dealing with clients and prosecutors, who experience crimes through the written words of police reports. I, on the other hand, have seen death, violence and blood. I was never sure if I would make it home at the end of my watch but I would do it all over again because I am a better attorney for it.
