controversial or despised clients."

he's right...prosecutors and judges always get the benefit of the doubt; defense attorneys are always equated with their defendants...guilty and sleazy and never given the benefit of the doubt.

    Very good defense of the idea that all need representation. Innocent people would get railroaded because of popular opinion. Not that that does not happen on occasion but we need all the protection against it we can get in order to be able to call ourselves free.
