It may make you uncomfortable to learn that your attorney believes that all sides matter. In fact, a good attorney will understand the importance of fair representation in accordance with our justice system. There are also several key benefits, listed below, to hiring an attorney who has successfully represented clients across the legal spectrum.
Understanding Relevant Laws
A lawyer who has served as both a prosecutor and a defense lawyer is an invaluable asset, whether you are being accused of a crime or seeking compensation in a personal injury case. If the lawyer has extensive experience defending or representing clients, there is a good chance he or she also has greater understanding of laws relevant to your case. While that is not necessarily true in all cases, a highly experienced lawyer who has successfully tried cases from both sides of the aisle should be on your shortlist.
Any lawyer who can represent clients in both criminal and civil law cases is likely more focused on favorable outcomes for those clients. Such lawyers have truly embraced the principles and virtues of the legal system. This is not a negative trait but, rather, a true understanding of the importance of a just legal system that affords fair representation to all. For instance, you wouldn’t want to be represented by a lawyer who is influenced by personal biases. Any lawyer who thinks that all sides matter is focused on following the principles that keep the legal system honest.
