Where do you get your motivation to fight for your clients?

“As a lawyer there is no more intensive form of counseling than in criminal law when confronting the individual lives and motivations of my clients. As such, criminal law has always been a central theme in my education and career. Following my first state exam I worked in the Faculty for Criminal Law and Criminology at the University of Regensburg and, thereafter, my legal traineeship in Berlin was dedicated almost exclusively to criminal law. The core of my experience can be summed up thus: What the public prosecutor assumes, is mostly not so. This motivates me to analyze each case very exactly ‒ motives, circumstances, personal interests. Pushing oneself to the limit always brings rewards even if, in white collar crime, some files comprise thousands of pages.”
