Defenders of the Constitution

To be a district attorney or an assistant district attorney, one must be willing to screw with other people’s lives. DA’s have to be vindictive and obstinate. DA’s are typically lazy, too. Criminal defense attorneys have to be smarter than prosecutors need be. I mean, the laws are written in the favor of the State. The criminal defenders must work with laws that are drafted against their clients.

Criminal law is not “good guys” versus “bad guys.” Criminal defense attorneys are defenders of the Constitution.
