TLR@90, Fall 2018
By Catherine M. Recker [PDF]

Criminal defense attorneys meet their clients when “they are facing the overwhelming prospect of losing everything that is dear to them: liberty, fortune, and family.” This is especially apparent when they face a sustained period of incarceration. It was Professor Ohlbaum who taught me that it falls upon the criminal defense lawyer to “illuminate for the judge and the jury some of the most inspiring aspects of our clients and the human condition.”
