Thread: CT Redux: Comedy has died

  1. #761
    The r Kelly situation makes my job a little bit easier. Sometimes my CP guys want to go to trial. Now I'm going to be able to say, " if R Kelly's lawyers can't beat a federal CP charge, what makes you think I can?"

    Sounds like you need to start believing that you can fly. You could be the worlds greatest.

    If I ever won mega millions Id take a significant portion and set up a private practice that provided public defender services.

    Id say Id just take an entry level job at a PD office but I dont think theyd take me seriously without that financial commitment.

    or just if you're going to spend time on a sports message board learn to take a joke? good lord

    So far, I've had one innocent client. Stressful as a motherfucker. (Just like your mom, I got her off - and if the ABA is reading this, by that I mean she was not convicted of a criminal offense).

    State level is totally different. Innocent people get caught up in that mess all the time.

    Federal prosecutions are hand-picked by a (at least semi) competent Assistant United States Attorney. Typically, they are picking 100% soft balls. E.g. felon has a gun hanging out of his pants when police approach on a routine stop; or dumbass drug dealer has 5 pounds of meth sitting in plain view in his lap when cops walk up; or tweaker/dealer sells drugs 10 times to a confidential informant on 4K video.

    whats the draw to public defense for you?

    I gotta buy a lottery ticket. We doing this discussion again?

    My biggest concern would be whether to hire private tutors for my kids so it wouldn't impede my travel plans or keep them in public schools so they wouldn't turn out to be shitty people.

    In my humble opinion, practicing criminal defense is as close as the law gets to "actually doing something productive."

    Huge swaths of law fields are in the "I've practiced for 60 years and, 10 years after I die, there won't be a single thing that evidences that I ever existed."

    Even for patent law, I was just so bummed out about the actual practice of it. I went into it thinking, "I'm going to facilitate the captains of industry." No. Dear god no. That practice is some of the least meaningful work that I've ever done.

    Like, no shame on the people who do it - you've just got to be comfortable knowing that less than a generation after you die, nothing you've done will have mattered.

    For me, even criminal law isn't enough. I still have to build a house every now and then to abate the void.
