Why criminal defense lawyers?

One of my favorite anonymous quotes about the criminal defense Bar - Protectors of Rights, Defenders of Individual Freedoms, and one of the last bulwarks against unbridled government power:
We, as criminal-defense lawyers, are forced to deal with some of the lowest people on earth, people who have no sense of right and wrong, people who will lie in court to get what they want, people who do not care who gets hurt in the process. It is our job, our sworn duty, as criminal-defense lawyers, to protect our clients, from those people.
