I am staunchly conservative and honored to work as a defense attorney. I have represented clients who I truly loathed, and would represent them tomorrow in a heartbeat. This is not because I hope to legitimize child pornography or rape. It is not because I have one shred of sympathy for their crimes. It is because I love this country with all my heart and I hope it remains a free land where the rule of law trumps mob violence. To those who think this is unworthy, I would ask you to look at examples like the Duke Lacrosse Case, where an overzealous prosecutor almost put several innocent men in jail because he thought it would be politically expedient.
