“My sole responsibility is to advocate for my clients and to protect them from the uncertainty of the criminal justice system. It isn’t sufficient to simply possess knowledge of legal principles – effective advocacy requires discretion as to how to best apply those principles to my client’s benefit. The criminal justice system is characterized by uncertainty for the accused person. I provide value for my clients when I minimize that uncertainty and advocate for their best position.” -Kent Teskey
