To a common man, a guy on the street, a coworker, my son – lawyering up is a good way to defend yourself or your actions in a situation where it’s being attacked for being unlawful. Whether or not you meant to be unlawful is secondary to the notion that every person on trial deserves representation – the legal system in this country was designed to be too complicated for any citizen to use. This is why millions and millions of non-criminals are in prisons across the nation.
