Defender's Credo

Every now and then I get down and then I look up at the board over my desk and I see this:
Defender's Credo
I am a Public Defender.
I am the guardian of the presumption of innocence, due process and fair trial.
To me is entrusted the preservation of those sacrecd principles.
I will promulgate them with courtesy and respect.
But not with obsequiousness and not with fear,
for I am partisan;I am counsel for the defense.
Let none who oppose me forget that with every fiber of my being, I will fight for my clients.
My clients are the indigent accused.
They are the lonely, the friendless.
There is no one to speak for them, but me.
My voice will be raised in their defense.
I will resolve all doubt in their favor.
This is my credo; this and the Golden rule.
I will seek acclaim and approval only from my own conscience.
And if upon my death there are a few lonely people who have benefitted, my efforts will not have been in vain.

written by Jim Douherty, Former Public Defender Cook County
