I grew up knowing I was going to be a defense attorney. I never conceived of any other profession. Once I started practicing criminal defense, I found that while any lawyer will take a DUI case, few had dedicated the time and effort to learning the science well enough to look for possible defenses in almost any case. Instead, they just got good at telling their clients they needed to plead guilty without thouroghly evaluating the case. I do my best to never let that happen with my clients' cases.
