Why do you represent criminals?

Sometimes my friends and family ask me how can you defend a person who is charged with a crime, particularly when you know your client is guilty.  Everyone who is charged with a crime is entitled to the best defense possible, whether that person is innocent or guilty.  That has been part of our Constitution and laws since the beginning of this country and far before that.  Not everyone I defend is guilty, and of those who are guilty, there are often extenuating circumstances which militate against an excessively harsh sentence.

Whenever someone comes to me for help with a criminal charge, I do not judge them.  I consider that potential client as a fellow human being who has got himself/herself into a jam and who needs help.  I will help my criminally accused client as much as the law will allow.
