“The trouble is, I don’t love them enough. The difference between you and me is I’m trying to overcome my prejudices and you’re not.”

— Former two-term Governor Reubin Askew in response to a heckler who called him a “n----- lover” during his 1958 campaign for the state House.

R.I.P. Governor Askew. You raised the bar on integrity, and your legacy will continue be the yardstick by which future—and current—governors are measured.

I was in Palm Beach County earlier this week on a case, and as I was walking through the parking garage on the way to my car, I glanced back and saw this beautiful visual juxtaposition of the old and new courthouses, the new one's grand arch framing the old.

Think the NSA programs shouldn't concern you b/c you've got nothing to hide? Go live somewhere else. THIS is the USA.

Not sure if aired yet today, but I was interviewed by WIOD News Radio about the appeals court decision yesterday upholding the search of a student's backpack at school, based solely on an anonymous tip. Not an easy decision. This was evidenced by the Court's 24 page majority opinion. What do you think? Did the Court get it right?

Yes, this is a tough question. I think it's the correct decision. When we enter courtrooms we're subject to searches, except that entering courtrooms is not often required on a daily basis and usually not mandatory. Students are different. They are required to attend class this can be subjected to search. I'm used to deciding whether to attend certain public events where there may be checkpoints; students don't have that choice. That is my main problem with the decision.

Yes, innocent people do get convicted.

Granted, the segment of the population that has the most contact with the criminal justice system is the criminal element. And the truth is that most people who are convicted are in fact guilty. But it’s the process by which these criminals are convicted that is of paramount importance to us all. As the late Justice Felix Frankfurter so tactfully put: “It is a fair summary of history to say that the safeguards of liberty have been forged in controversies involving not very nice people.”

And therein lies the rub.

I'm wondering whether the Herald would have used this picture of the defendant if he had been acquitted. Or does he always look like Jack Nicholson in "The Shining?"

I hired David Edelstein to defend me in a petit theft case. This unfortunately was the 2nd time I was arrested for this crime. The first time was almost a decade ago in another state. I looked up what punishment I was facing and it was a year in jail, a $1000 fine, a year probation with community service and counseling, and a criminal conviction forever on my record. I couldn't believe I had embarrassed my family by committing this crime a second time. The first time I was arrested for this crime years ago, I hired the best lawyer in town and paid a lot of money. He told me all sorts of things he was going to do for me to get me out of the situation. Said he was going to be proactive and talk to the people at the store before charges were even filed and all sorts of hopeful plays he was going to make. BUT as soon as he had my money, he none of the things he promised... So this second time around I spoke with five different lawyers when I was thinking about hiring someone. Each lawyer told me a different story as to what they could do for me. Some of them were actually a bit rude on the phone before I even hired them! Some were overly hopeful and some were pessimistic about my outcome. I could tell immediately that David was not only knowledgeable but that he actually cared about his clients. Something about his voice and the way he answered my questions. I was more than right to hire him and his team!! First, through the 3 months I wait to wait until court, David did everything he promised. He always took every call or email I made to him. He was always polite and never rushed me. On the day of court guess what!? David got me - NO JAIL TIME, NO CONVICTION, NO COMMUNITY SERVICE, and NO PROBATION!!!! I paid a $300 fine and was able to leave! AND not only that but that day there must been over 50 people waiting to see the judge and he somehow negotiated it so that my case was heard first!!!! I am telling you - HIRE THIS MAN and his team!!! They are the best!

I met David through a friend about 4 years ago. As a fellow criminal defense attorney, I have recommended people in need of an attorney to him in South Florida, as well as referred anyone who has a federal case to David. He is a consummate professional whom I trust in completely. If I were to get into trouble myself, I would hire David Edelstein.

Angel On Earth! :) My first thought was that every lawyer was a robotic person who only would take a case if a lot of money is involved. David proved me entirely wrong, showing true kindness and compassion to me when my mom was in FDC and I was all by myself at the time. He was very kind to my mom during her trial. A true God-sent angel on Earth! Solved my mom's case with flying colors. Would definitely go back to him if I need help. Thanks So Much for your kindness David! :)

I have never had to deal with anything that needed a lawyer so I really did not know where to start in finding one. My mother and I did some research online and I am so happy that we found Mr. Edelstein. He is very attentive and follows through which helped with the stress I felt during my case. My case was dismissed! When I first met with him he was very up front and honest while giving me the facts, but at the same time compassionate enough where I felt comfortable with him representing me. Anytime I had a question even when the case was closed in regards to applying for a job, real estate application, writing a letter in regards to a job, he was there to help me immediately. I understand Lawyers are extremely busy, but I did not have to wait on him as him or his assistant was able to assist me and answer any of my questions the same day. I am truly fortunate to have found him at that difficult time in my life.
