“The zealous defense attorney is the last bastion of liberty . . . .”

“The zealous defense attorney is the last bastion of liberty – the final barrier between an overreaching government and its citizens. The job of the defense attorney is to challenge the government; to make those in power justify their conduct in relation to the powerless; to articulate and defend the right of those who lack the ability or resources to defend themselves.”

-Alan Dershowitz
