"My job is to fight for the little guy against the powerful. For average Americans against big insurance and big banks, slumlords and speculators. Our legal system guarantees the right to a trial in front a jury drawn from our own community. The community, through the jury, decides the verdict. I believe that our legal system results in justice in the vast majority of cases, giving ordinary folks a fair fight against the big guys. My job is to fight with them."
