“I have lived my life, and I have fought my battles, not against the weak and the poor – anybody can do that – but against power, against injustice, against oppression, and I have asked no odds from them, and I never shall.”

Clarence Darrow

Perhaps the worst thing that can happen to a person in our society is to be charged with a criminal offense.  Based on mere accusations, the government will focus its formidable powers against an individual. The accused will be forced to attend proceedings that often he or she does not understand, and often the stakes are very high.  But the accused does not stand alone; into this arena steps defense counsel. Armed with little more than wits and knowledge of criminal law, defense counsel will become the voice through which the accused will, in effect, do battle with the awesome powers of government. 

Katharine Liell will be your voice.  Ms. Liell is prepared to stand and fight for you throughout the proceedings and throughout trial.  You do not stand alone.
