Lawyers get a bad rap - sometimes its justified, and sometimes it is not. In these days of social media and internet marketing you might think all lawyers are interested in is bringing in more clients - and more money. For many that may be the case. But there are still a few lawyers who are in it for the right reasons.
One example is Scott F. Kaufman, a California lawyer who represented Dennis Lawley for 19 years. Mr. Kaufman came across evidence of his client's innocence, and presented that to the courts. Unfortunately, they took there time, and Mr. Lawley passed. You might think that is the end of it - but Mr. Kaufman is pushing ahead, and wants a ruling. He knows that it is important to bring the truth out. Even though Mr. Lawley won't directly benefit his family will, as well as his reputation.
With David Martin and Cameron Todd Willingham we saw an example of a lawyer trashing a client after their death. Here we have the exact opposite - which is what you should expect from a good lawyer.
I don't know Mr. Kaufman, but I commend him for sticking with it. We need more lawyers who want to do the right thing - even if its not financially rewarding.
