Like many of my contemporaries I went to law school because I wanted to save the world. And that's what I try to do, one client at a time.

Protecting her client's rights is what Katherine Gilmer does best. In this article she examines the impact of recent legislation that severely restricts a persons gun rights. It is quick and informative "must read" post for anyone concerned about their Second Amendment right to bear arms

One of the most complex areas of criminal law is juvenile law. Yet day in and day out untrained and ill prepared lawyers are appointed to defend children accused of crimes in an unforgiving and unbalanced system. Oh, and did I mention they do not get paid for doing the work? 

Yes, the judges get paid, the prosecutors get paid, the few public defender with too many cases to handle get paid, and the clerks and court reporter, courtroom bailiff and security guards, they all get paid. But far too often the one person in the room who has something at stake—the child—more than occasionally  innocent and almost always redeemable will have a lawyer who is not be paid. 

Shame on us for allowing such a system!

The Shreveport Times has reprinted my blog posting about Louisiana's Broken Criminal Justice System in its Conversations section this Sunday and has also posted it online.
