Ask Me a Question
Recent Illinois Bar inductee fortunate enough to be working in an area and field that I fully expect to enjoy. I’m guessing this will become more and more a legal blog but, I may in fact have to be more careful what I say.

Fifty years ago, a simple, uneducated man — “the poorest and least powerful of men,” Lewis called Gideon — asked the justices for help and got it. Such a response from the current Court is virtually unthinkable. The fact today is that there are two levels of justice in America, one for the rich and one for the poor — the very essence of the unequal justice that Gideon was supposed to end. As Bright pointedly puts it, “it is better to be rich and guilty than poor and innocent” in America today. http://www.theatlantic.com/national/archive/2013/03/how-americans-lost-the-right-to-counsel-50-years-after-gideon/273433/
God is good, you guys. All the time.It’s pretty incredible, while also terrifying, to recognize the power we have as believers in simply sharing the gift we’ve already received.
