Dr. Anna Berger,

Dr. Berger, where do you get your motivation to fight for your clients?

"Criminal law is the state's sharpest weapon. For me, criminal defense means the demanding task of constitutional status to ensure procedural equality of arms at every stage of the proceedings, which often threaten the very existence of the defendant, and - to use the words of Max Alsberg - of putting a stop to what is in some cases a 'high-handed, hasty grab for the truth'."
