The Importance of Not Taking On Every Case

If The Defense Group takes a case, it is a guarantee that they will give their best efforts–both emotionally and technically–to get the best possible result for their clients. According to attorney Hal Uhrig, the firm will not take cases that they find morally objectionable. For example, if a client wants to hire them, and they truly believe he is guilty of child abuse, they will advise him to look elsewhere for legal help. He does not deserve to have a lawyer whose heart is not invested in the case, and refusing this case will allow The Defense Group to devote more time and energy to cases that they do care more deeply about.

If you or someone you know needs to be defended in a Florida case, contact an attorney at The Defense Group through our website or call us at 407-831-1956 for a free consultation. We are available 24 hours a day in case of emergency, and we are able to arrange appointments for nights or weekends if necessary.


“For one thing, if I take the case, they know that we’re going to give our very best technical and emotional efforts to get them the best possible result. I’ll give you an example. If someone is charged with sexually abusing a 5 year old child, and I believe that they’re actually guilty of that — whether they tell me that or not, if I believe that they’re actually guilty of that — they should probably go get another lawyer, because I’d just as soon they be in prison. And so, while I have the skills to defend them, I’m not going to have my heart in that case. They don’t deserve to have a lawyer who’s heart’s not in it, and I think that the cases that I do take, they know that I’m really in it for them.”
