Rule No. 1

Listen, don't judge.

The late Sharon Levine listened to what her clients had to say without judging them.  Once you start to judge your client, you are no longer listening to what he or she is saying and you are doing them a disservice.

Our duty as criminal defense lawyers is to provide the best defense we can for our clients -- and you can't do that if you are caught up in making value judgments
