As a defense lawyer, your job isn't to "make" or "help" a guy go free, your simply giving him the defense he constitutionally deserves. It's not an endorsement. You can't change the facts of the case, your simply showing his side of it. I've never felt that the supposed moral hazard of being defense lawyer was really true.
