Bless The Guardians Of Liberty
There are many who struggle in anonymity for the rights of people and for justice. We do not find them on golf courses or lounging in the private clubs. They labor in dingy offices and struggle for the next month’s rent. Their goal is not money, but freedom for a client charged with a crime he did not commit. They fight for justice for a woman who was harassed by her boss at the workplace. They fight for those who have been cheated by their landlords and manipulated by their banks. They are likely shunned by the elitists of the profession. They likely hold no offices in the bar or attend its functions in Hawaii. They are among the masses of lawyers scorned by the public. But they count among them the few who still guard the liberty of the people. When I go to law schools to speak, I recognize them immediately. They sit up front, and I want them to know before they start to doubt themselves that one person can really make a difference. So I launch into my story of Ralph Nader.
