Lawyers are there to defend our feels but who is there to defend the lawyers feels?
How do to they live with themselves with the pieces of shvt they defend
@megamanx181x, probably lots of anti-depressants and therapy.
@megamanx181x, easy... (Mr. Krabs voice) MONEY!
@seeUpee, mmmm, yes I can see that
@megamanx181x, Easy, just remember everyone has a right to defend themselves. Guilty or not.
@Leslie Knope 2020, I know just some of them take the most vile cause they have the money.
@megamanx181x, I work in the juvenile justice system, and asked public defender once. She explained that a lawyer’s job is to zealously advocate for their client. For an obviously guilty client, she said her role was to protect the client’s constitutional rights, and hold the state accountable on procedure and rules.
@JDPhi, I can believe that there are plenty of lawyers like that for defense that look at it neutrally. Just gets to me there very good lawyers who defend the worst cause there’s good money to be made.
@megamanx181x, It's also for the next guy who may have a similar story, but is innocent. You have to defend everyone, everytime. Otherwise you risk letting an innocent slip through and go to jail.
There's also the idea that by being the best defender that you can be that you're making the prosecution and police have to be the best they can be.
Then there's the idea of getting you client the punishment they deserve and protecting from cruel and unusual punishment. If prosecutors had their way everyone would be in jail for the maximum amount of time possible and that's not always just.
@PoliticalOtters, of course true, we all could be on the side of that defendant table one day for something we did on accident. It’s hard to believe sometimes the idea that justice is truly blind.
@megamanx181x, Justice isn't blind in the sense that it's wholly unbiased. It's blind in the sense that an adamant defense attorney is fighting an unmoving prosecution and they negate each other. Both sides of the law are consistent bastards.
@PoliticalOtters, true be that....
@PoliticalOtters, sometimes they can also work out a plea deal with a more favorable sentence for the defendant.
My fiance is interning for a public defender and she says that the case they're on makes them consistently go cry after court.
It's ez use big words so no one knows if ur insulting or complementing them.
@Tony with an i, wow, that sounds soporific
How i imagine hell...
