My philosophy on the practice of law is simple: 
"Treat all persons with the dignity and respect they deserve regardless of their background. Whenever the legal system does not work the way it was designed or intended, then it must be challenged. There is no greater way to abort justice than to condone or overlook an inept or corrupt legal or political system that does not protect its citizens."
