On May 17, 2013, Jonathan Rosenberg wrote an article for Maxim Magazine, which showed us the absurdity of our nation’s federal criminal regime: “The 7 Felonies You’ve Probably Committed in Your Lifetime…”
Even Federal Judges can’t escape missteps under the Federal law: 131 Federal Judges Broke the Law, and Of Course They Were Not Prosecuted. I am personally very glad that they were not prosecuted; we should rejoice when such missteps are warned against, and not prosecuted. We should, however, hope that others — not federal judges — who break the rules are not so cruelly held to a standard of duty that we don’t hold our judges to on major conflicts violations.
We fight for our clients because we could all become the innocent accused; all it takes is one prosecutor, one liberal interpretation of the law — one interpretation of the tax code; one interpretation of a lending statute; one interpretation of trading securities while sitting on the bench. They may not come for You, but you, they may come for you. For us, and we are all each one of the other, but for the individual part of us that is God-given.
