You're defending her, do all the talking and tape her mouth shut or something. That doesn't look suspicious at all.
I think its more a case of people saying a lawyer's conscience can't get in the way of doing their job. If you're hired to defend somebody you defend them to the best of your ability, within the limits of the law....because truthfully, the law has nothing to do with your conscience and everything to do with arbitrary legal paramaters for acceptable societal behaviour.
63, That's only if you accept that paradigm. Many of us put our own sense of morality above the law, and while this would make someone technically a bad lawyer, it does make them a good person - which is a far greater thing to be. Best legal practice =/= best practice.
You must be a shitty lawyer, you know you have a conflict of interest in this case you numbskull
just tell the jury she is insane and has no clue what she is talking about!
