Here is our favorite quote from To Kill A Mockingbird, by Atticus: “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what.”
This best describes the character that I have observed in almost every client I have ever represented at trial. Each and everyone of them have taught me the true meaning of courage. As a criminal defense attorney, I am committed to seeing every case I take through no matter what, come hell or high water, and come what may. It’s not an easy job, but it is certainly not easier to be one of my clients sitting in that chair next to me, listening to the evidence against them, and to me as I fight for them, and then waiting for 12 jurors to decide their fate. I am often humbled by their courage.
