    I never thought how much dedication, passion, effort, and sacrifices capital defense lawyers put on their work until I read this book Before I read this, I had an impression that almost if not all capital defense lawyers were motivated by just money and the penchant to protect the allege criminals because they like to take advantage of the drama to be popular Little did I know that many are motivated by many other factors I haven t even considered.So as I went through the pages of this book, I came to realize that belief in sanctity of life, that the government should not have the right to kill, that alleged offenders are just victims themselves of what is wrong in our society, are just few of the reasons why capital lawyers choose to practice in this area Some practice capital defense due to the intellectual and the adrenaline rush it gives In other words capital lawyers find fulfillment in this role Fulfillment that few can only understand.This book also discuss how capital work affects the health and well being of the lawyers While many experience vicarious trauma while others were able to cope Handling the responsibility of defending the so called worst of the worst of our society can really takes its toll.This is really an eye opening book I learned a lot and understand that there are those people who can see something worth fighting for in even the most despise individuals in this world.

    Thank you nyupress lol for providing a copy to read review Criminal defense lawyers have long represented the shunned and scorned, admirably committed to constitutional principles and a sense of duty, but how does a defense lawyer explain her work in the most harrowing of capital cases, involving crimes that turn the stomach and inflamed the public s desire for vengeance p 36 This book seeks to understand the complexities of defending those who society have so often deemed unworthy Gould and Barak interview some sixty 60 capital defense lawyers, who offer up personal and intimate details, of defending those who have been charged with capital offenses Examining the why and how an attorney gets involved in such a specialized field, while also acknowledging the racial bias, gender, and socio economic disparities, between clients and their attorneys I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book Capital defense isn t really talked about, in the way which this book creates When you hear about gruesome murders, serial killers, and terroristic mass casualties, you often think of the perpetrator s , not the legal team doing everything in their power to exonerate their client and or at the least, eliminate the death penalty and or life sentences without the possibility of parole, out of the equation As Bryan Stevenson once said, each of us is than the worst thing we ve ever done I absolutely felt that, after reading this book.
