Reflections On The 4th Of July
As we celebrate the 242nd Anniversary of our Declaration of Independence, I am reflecting on how proud I am to be both an American and a Lawyer. While we all laugh at the many jokes constantly directed at the legal profession (and some of them are funny), it is important on every 4th of July to remember that many of our country’s forefathers were lawyers. Indeed, of the initial ten Amendments to the United States Constitution, four (Amendments 5-8) deal directly with legal rights.
Four of the five members of our first Continental Congress entrusted with developing the Declaration of Independence were lawyers – Roger Sherman, John Adams, Robert Livingston and Thomas Jefferson. Two of them, Adams and Jefferson, went on to become Presidents of our county. And James Madison, the “Father of the Constitution” and the “Bill or Rights” (and our fourth president as well) was also a lawyer. In fact, 25 of the nation’s 45 Presidents have been lawyers.
So I am indeed honored to practice this great profession, and to have the ability to fight for people’s legal rights to the due process of law.
