What about Saint Genesius of Rome?

He was an actor.  He's been confused with St. Genesius of Arles, who was a law clerk (i.e. the ones who do most of the legal work, and often are disgusted by what they observe on the sidelines).

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

How about St Zenas the Lawyer - one of the seventy - commemorated on 27th September?

I believe in One God, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.

Saint Yiri (George) Novytsky, a Ukrainian lawyer, who lived later years of his life in Saint Petersburg, Russia and, in particular, served as the attorney for the Orthodox diocese there after the communist coup in 1917. He protested to confiscation of the Church's valuables and has been executed by a shooting squad together with St. Bengamin, the Metropolitan of Saint Petersburg (Sankt Peterburg, Petrograd) and (2) more heroes.
