I believe that being a lawyer is a noble profession. Lawyers are teachers, problem solvers, counselors, and protectors; we believe that a society is measured by how we treat the least desirable among us, whether criminal or commercial, and that the deep flaws in our system can be addressed, even in small ways, by simply representing our clients. We are not loved so we must earn trust and respect, and that is the scale by which our value is measured.
Lawyers advance core democratic values and put them into practice. The legal profession is the ultimate marketplace of ideas where different definitions of reasonableness and fairness compete—and the measure of that fairness is having another voice, another perspective, and another champion in the room; that other voice is that of a lawyer.
