Defense attorneys keep justice system going

Defense attorneys keep justice system going | The Law and YOU | Scoop.it

 

"Some people tend to believe everyone charged with a crime is guilty and doesn’t deserve representation. But in order for our justice system to work, the accused must receive a fair trial which means a zealous defense."

 

Defense lawyers often get a bad reputation becouse they represent a lot of criminals who do some aweful things, but they really are an integral role to the justice system. The accused are not always guilty, and it is the Defenses job to prove it and give them a chance of winning in court. This looks like a pursuable career because there is always a demand for defense lawyers. Spanish would be usefull for talking to potential clients and wittnesses.

How can law firms predict which law students will become great rainmakers?

 

This article goes through and shows how people filter out law students after they graduate based on how well they will do in their firm. They ask them questions that go beyond just knowing the law. They get into their personality and find out how they will interact with their clients and if they will have a connection by being more in depth than just knowing book smarts. 

 

They refer to "rainmakers" as a person who will bring in clients and be able to win cases by not only knowledge but by using their personality as a key with their clients. Some places are taking law students with GPA's of as low as 2.8 because they still know the knowledge base of the law, but they might also have one of the best personalities there is for a job in the law profession.

Felonies vs. Misdemeanors

Felonies vs. Misdemeanors | The Law and YOU | Scoop.it

Felonies vs. Misdemeanors: What's the Difference? Felonies What is the punishment for a felony? How does the three strikes law work?

 

In Denver, Colorado it may differ than other states, but there is a major difference between felonies and misdemeanors. Felonies can result in time in a federal prison longer than one year, while misdeanors will just result in a ticket, fine or jail time up to one year. 

 

With felonies, if a person is convicted on two or more felonies, they can be convicted on life in prison. Also, felons can not serve on a jury because it is believed that since they are a convicted felon, they do not know their rights. 

 

Some felonies include rape, assult, murder, kidnapping, auto theft and embezzling. 

 

Misdemeanors are less serious crimes such as traffic crimes. These crimes can usually be wiped off one's record within 5 years. Misdemeanors can usually be a more serious crime if one fights with police or runs away or does not show up one their court date.

Finding the Perfect Lawyer

Finding the Perfect Lawyer | The Law and YOU | Scoop.it

Not all lawyers are the same, there are multiple types of lawyers from criminal defense to corporate law. The type of lawyer needed, depends on if it requires a contract or a trial. 

Some can charge a flat rate, while others will charge a percentage of the winnings; and if the lawyer does not win the case, they will not charge the client. 

 

"When compared to trying to keep one's liberty, money is much less important." This quote shows what the job of a lawyer is, they are trying to prove the innocence of a client (or the guilt; if a prosecuter). They are trying to secure the rights given to the citizens by the constitution.
