I foresee very very interesting conversations between the rich physiologist and the self made attorney, that's a match made in heaven for Garland. xD Excited you're on bored. Try not to tear apart Garlands bravado with analysis to hard lol. Actually, I'm kidding. I'll love responding to it.
The only thing I could think of is a slight alteration to his stories and troubles to make him more local, because that way it can be handled in a local court. I'd try(If you like this idea at all) his brother framing him for some type of typical crime that would be likely to be in Garlands wheel house, that way it could evolve from there and that massive situation could be dealt with in a small courtroom
