The controversial lawyer who tried to keep 'Dr Death' Jack Kevorkian out of jail is offering to represent troubled actor ROBERT BLAKE - for free.

Attorney JEFFREY FEIGER has written to the one-time BARETTA star, who is currently on bail in the trial of murdering his wife Bonny Lee Bakley, offering to take over his case - but Blake is determined to stay with THOMAS MESEREAU, the lawyer who won him bail.

Mesereau says, "I think people will try to get publicity every way they can.

"Robert and I are working well together, we trust each other, he knows I believe in him."
