The Mind of a Criminal Lawyer

Can anybody really know what is going inside the heads of criminal lawyers? I mean, yes, we can pick bits of their intelligence during courtroom trials and through the legal documents that they draft. But considering the chances that defense attorneys can acquit obviously guilty criminals through small technicalities—simple folks like me all over the world must be forever in awe of their cunning minds.

It is not only with defense attorneys. Every time the lawyers in the prosecution prove the accused guilty of his or her crime, they also prove that they have smarter ways to counter whatever tricks DAs have on their sleeves. When you think of it, the whole engagement looks and feels like a game—a game of who is the smartest, the best. Thing is, this kind of game has been present in all kinds of industry since time immemorial. What is unique in this game among criminal lawyers is the challenge of who can twist the law the most and can effectively get away with it. As mentioned earlier, this is a recurring (and accepted) practice among the defense attorneys. Something that is not supposed to be.

Unfortunately, it has become a norm. And it is okay. As long as they are cunning enough to bend the law in their favor. We would like to believe that this practice only exist in the major states like New York, Massachusetts, and California. However, we may not be aware of it, but it is also widely practiced in the smaller states like Nebraska, Utah, and Maryland. Actually, it is not only common in America. It is present in every court in every country in the world. The goal of a criminal lawyer boils to one thing: winning the case. Whatever method he or she may use in between is confidential, known only to them or to their firm.

I’m always asking this to myself. Are the criminal lawyers, especially defense attorneys, still bothered by their conscience? If so, is that the reason why they can’t sleep at night? This is just a speculation, but it this the reason for some lawyers’ insomnia? Paranoia? Mood swings? Perhaps because this is the path they choose, they opt to shrug this need for moral responsibility. They shrug it off, but it is still there, of course, eating the back of their minds.

As I said, these are just speculations. I am just letting the romantic in me get the best of this musing. We’ll never know. Maybe most of them are robot-like personalities with hearts of steel. But maybe this is also true in some criminal lawyers. Again, we will never know. We can only speculate. We can only try to put feelings in the otherwise stern, confident faces we see in court trials and television interviews. Nevertheless, this is a clever bunch, these criminal lawyers. The rest of the world is better off with them than without them. Whatever their idiosyncrasies are, we still need them to tip the balance of what we believe is justice.

When you need one and are currently looking, you should be able to tell first what traits you want your criminal lawyer to have.

Who Said You Do not Need a Family Lawyer
Who told you that you do not need a family lawyer? Your friends? Your neighbors? Do you believe them? Tell you what? Ideally, every family should have a lawyer to represent them. Unfortunately, not everybody can afford to hire a family lawyer. Heck, some cannot even maintain a health insurance. Some cannot even support a growing family--they end up engaging in abortion or giving their children away for adoption. I tell you. That is not even the worst of the unfortunate cases here in America....

Having a Child with the Help of a Family Lawyer
The older, wiser, generations always say that you will never feel complete, especially if you are a woman, without having children of your own. This is not a universal rule.

But the fact that different people with different sets of values and principles feel this certain need for offspring is a strong enough argument. Single, independent...
