Greenburg Traurig’s Mathew Rosengart has finally broken the Satan spell that kept Britney Spears laboring under a conservatorship for the seeming benefit of everyone except her. For that, he deserves every bit of professional praise he’s getting.

We can appreciate what he’s pulled off without veering into idolatry, can’t we?
