LAW DAY REFLECTIONS: Kenny Jacobs

When reflecting on Celebrating and Advancing the Rule of Law, we must always keep the most basic fundamental laws of our country and state at the forefront—that of our Constitution and the individual rights enshrined therein.  The legal protections the Constitution provide to all people against the government when charged by that government with violation of the law, including the right of privacy, the right to due process, the presumption of innocence, the right to counsel, and others are critical and necessary to a free democratic society and recognition of the dignity of individuals against the government. As criminal defense attorneys we often take cases that are difficult and sometimes controversial because we know that, for our criminal justice system to function at all, every accused individual must have effective representation. Every person is accountable to the law and every person is entitled to the protection of the law.
