“Justice Shouldn’t Be Just for the Rich”

On October 19, 2011 by Schnader

Hon. Timothy K. Lewis, counsel in the Firm’s Washington, D.C. and Pittsburgh offices, authored a blog post “Justice Shouldn’t Be Just for the Rich” for The Huffington Post on October 19, 2011. Judge Lewis’ blog stated that competent defense is a basic constitutional right regardless of your level of income. Recent issues plaguing the justice system such as insufficient funding, overburdened attorneys, a lack of standards and oversight, and inconsistencies between states can result in unfair convictions.
