DO YOU KNOW that we here, in USA, we imprison more people than any other country in the world? The United States has 5% of the world's population and 25% of the world's inmates. Say, how many people do you have as your friends on Facebook? One hundred?? That means at least three of them are either in jail, on probation or on parole. Somebody has to defend our population of inmates, so why not you?
Let me teach you a thing or two about being a run-of-the-mill criminal lawyer. You don't really need to know the law - what you really need to know is your local prosecutor. The prosecutor will offer you a plea-bargain - take it and then tell your client that if not for you, his favorite criminal attorney, he would have joined the ranks of more than 2 million clients of our nation's penitentiary system. Then give him your business card and tell him to call you next time he hears those magic words: "You have the right to remain silent... you have the right to an attorney... you have the privilege of paying him two hundred bucks an hour to get you off again..."
