The 5 Top Reasons I Chose Criminal Defense

david reed

Since starting my practice, many have asked why I chose criminal defense.

Here are my top 5 reasons: 

1) I do not believe that people are defined by their failures. 

2) We are a combination of both our highs and our lows, but no single act defines us. 

3) I also believe that regardless of the allegations or the facts, everyone deserves an advocate. 

4) The American criminal justice system has proven extremely proficient at convicting and incarcerating; therefore, the only way to balance the system is for people to fight for the ones they defend. 

5) I believe we are all entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The first thing that is taken when someone is facing criminal charges is their liberty. 

As such, I choose to defend.
