A Criminal Defense Attorney's role in our Society | Merced Criminal Defense Attorney
At is inception the judicial system was created with the rights of the accused in mind. The purpose was to protect the defendant, unfortunately our society lost site of that concept. We have somehow been tricked into believing that we need to be"tougher" on crime, that the accused have to many rights, and that officer safety is paramount. Criminal defense attorneys are often times misunderstood, people often ask me "how do you represent someone when you know they are guilty?" To those who ask such a question I simply shake my head in utter disappointment. Criminal defense attorney's are the last true freedom fighters. Have you ever wondered who protects you from the police, the government and the entire judicial system? The answer is simple, we do.
I understand the pivotal role we play in our society, that is why we zealously advocate for our clients. Achieving justice for our clients in the courtroom means justice for all.
