If I Were an Attorney

My wife and I watch Law & Order: SVU every week. We love it. As I've morphed into a libertarian, I've found myself more and more drawn toward criminal defendants, and their job making sure the State doesn't abuse it's power (which it abuses by existing, duh). If I ever became an attorney, it would be as a criminal defendant. I really like the latest criminal defendant icon in the series, Bayard Ellis, played by Andre Braugher.
