I read this quote about writing today, written by my favorite author, John Steinbeck, and I wanted to share it with you.
In every bit of honest writing in the world… there is a base theme. Try to understand men, if you understand each other you will be kind to each other. Knowing a man well never leads to hate and nearly always leads to love. There are shorter means, many of them. There is writing promoting social change, writing punishing injustice, writing in celebration of heroism, but always that base theme. Try to understand each other.
For me, these words explain everything we are trying to accomplish at our Seattle criminal defense firm. Sometimes the legal system can be a cruel dark place, and without help, you can feel alone and crushed. But if you have an attorney whom understands who you are and can truly explain your story to others, you will be able to get the justice you deserve.
Our law firm’s mission is to help Judges, Juries, and Prosecutors understand our clients because when they do, they cannot hate our clients. “Knowing a man or woman well . . . always lead to love.”
That is our belief and our results support it. Call us today to make sure your story is properly told.
