->Don't get addicted to remorse. It's contemptible in a lawyer. The world does not revolve around you. Your behavior is not its moral center. Someday someone may sit in judgment on this legal system and say it could have been fairer or more compassionate or more responsive to social need. Maybe it'll be me, but not while I'm a criminal defense lawyer. While I'm a lawyer I'm going to defend my clients because it's the job I chose. And I choose to believe, which may be self-deceiving, that the only system worse than this one, is every other one I've ever studied. What I'm not going to do is be a lawyer by day and then scratch the scabs on my conscience by pretending to be a moral pathfinder by night. I don't know if Charles Galbraith got what's coming to him. If he didn't, maybe he'll get prostate cancer and that'll even the score. I don't know if this kid I'm defending is guilty or innocent. And I don't need to know to do my job. That's all we are here to do. And if we do it right, that's enough.

->A lawyer so badass he has actual pseudo-villain nicknames of his own, such as '[[MagnificentBastard The Brilliant Bastard]]' and, no kidding, 'Devil's Advocate.' His clients have included Klaus Barbie, Carlos the Jackal, the Serbian dictator Slobodan Milosevic and the dude who used to lead the Khmer Rouge... recently, he was pretty much the only man in existence who wanted anything to do with defending UsefulNotes/{{Saddam|Hussein}}, and went down on record by saying he'd totally have defended Hitler if given the chance.\\\
