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 physical 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.
We handle cases from petit theft to murder. We handle sex crimes and Internet crimes. Every accused is entitled to the assistance of legal counsel, but there is no Constitutional right to be defended by The Defense Group. Typical, if a person accused of capital sexual battery (a sex offense by an adult on a child under the age of 12) come to us for help, we will have that prospective client submit to a polygraph exam. If we are not satisfied, after receiving the results of that exam and interviewing the client, that they are innocent of the charges, we ask them to seek other counsel. We reserve the right to accept or decline any case. When we do accept a case, we utilize all of our experience and resources to try to minimize the consequences of the charges against our client.
We reserve this right as to ANY kind of case. Sometimes we are approached by a prospective client that is overly demanding, has unrealistic expectations, or expects us to engage in illegal or unethical conduct on their behalf. While we work for our clients, we reserve the right to handle the choice of strategies in the representation. We will not engage in illegal or unethical conduct on the command of a client. We will not make a knowing misrepresentation of fact or law to a court. We will not guarantee results on a case or even a hearing. If that core commitment to ethical representation does not fit with a prospective client, we will likewise invite them to go elsewhere.
