Some of the kids said their dads worked in an office, worked on the computer or worked for money. When the teacher asked my daughter what I did, my daughter told her that I was an attorney who helped get people out of jail.
At that moment, I felt very proud both of my daughter and what I do for a living.
As criminal defense attorneys we don't defend criminals. We defend the Bill of Rights. We defend the right of all of us to live our lives free from the oppressive arm of the government. But, we also help people. We help the families of those accused of criminal actions. People come to us with their hands outstretched because they have nowhere else to turn. They come to us at their moment of greatest vulnerability.
