What I love about being an attorney is that I get to fight for fairness. Ever since I can remember I grew up with a sense of what was fundamentally right and what was fundamentally wrong, fariness was an important concpet to me, fairness has remained an important concept for me.
As an attorney, my work gives me the opportunity to fight for fairness on a daily basis, and I can not think of a better way to spend my time. I can't count the number of times a potential client has come to me and said, "I support the police, I think they have a tough job to do, I dont protest them, but they did not treat me right when they charged me with this crime." I can relate to that reaction. What a lot of pepole don't realize, until they are charged with a crime, is that often times the police and prosecutors make snap judgements. They look at just a portion of facts or events and make a decision. When that decision results in an arrest and criminal charges it can be devistating to the perosn charged. People also dont realize that police officers can lie to poeple they are investigating, they can attempt to gather infomration by prentending to be on your side, or engaging a person in seemingly unimportant conversation. Likewise, a police officer can spin observations to make them more subjective thereby bolstering thier own view of a case. These things happen when people are arrested, and it always hits people like a ton of bricks when they realize what is happening.
My job is to fight for you and your rights. The United States Consitution guarantees due process and fuindamental fairness. That means that when the police or prosecutor attempt to twist facts and subjectivly apply evidence, you have the right to present the entire story and question their unfair presentation of the case. To me, that is an honorable profession to dedicate ones life to, and I am proud to do that on a daily basis. With every client I look forwrad to listening to thier side of the story and working with them to gather evidence the police did not want to find, or ignored. I develop strategies desinged to help us negotiate with the prosecutor and prepare the case for trial. I work to make sure that fairness is not lost in the judical system.
I'm proud to be an attorney, and I'm proud to work for people who need a voice and person to stand up for them.
