I am grateful to have had the opportunity to be a trial lawyer and am proud to be in the business of helping folks. It’s always the goal of the lawyers in our firm to obtain justice for our clients. Each of the lawyers at Beasley Allen is an advocate for their clients. Because all of our clients are in need, either physical or economic or a combination of the two, they are badly in need of an advocate. Many are totally disabled, can’t work and are totally dependent on others for the activities of daily life. Other clients are the surviving family members of a person who was tragically killed. Others we represent have been cheated by a powerful corporation and suffered significant losses. In our role as advocates, we have a duty to do our very best to see that complete justice is done for each client we represent.
In every case that we handle there is some entity or person at fault and responsible for our client’s plight. I learned early in my career that there are very few pure accidents. In every case I have seen somebody is at fault. The conduct of the wrongdoers can be either: a negligent or careless act; wanton conduct; or intentional conduct.
Without lawyers like those in our firm who are willing to take on their case, folks who are hurt or harmed by a large corporation would be virtually helpless with no where to turn. When we take on their case, we assume an awesome responsibility that goes with the responsibility. It’s our job to see that the victims of corporate wrongdoing or abuse receive justice. Taking on corporate America in litigation is no easy task. The huge corporations, many of whom put profits over safety, are politically powerful and have great influence with both the regulatory agencies on the federal level, as well as with some of the courts. The influence on the latter group is by way of political contributions which should have no place in judicial races.
It’s a basic premise that the pursuit of justice is the foundation of a civilized society – but quite often it comes hard and always at a cost. Obtaining justice comes about not by simply rigidly following rules – it also requires wisdom. Regardless of how smart we think we are or how well educated we may be, real wisdom can only come as a gift from God. Seeking justice means tackling injustice – and as we all know, the world is full of injustice. Justice involves protecting those who can’t defend themselves or who can’t be their own advocate. That’s what keeps me actively involved in the business of being an advocate.
We can learn a great deal about justice from the Bible. God gave the people laws through Moses that were the very embodiment of wisdom. Biblical law and wisdom go together because real wisdom comes from God. In fact, the Ten Commandments are the best example of God’s wisdom that you will ever see. In fact, God’s wisdom is the very cornerstone of Biblical law. The purpose of Biblical law is to enable us to love God and to love our neighbor. It would be a great world if all folks everywhere followed the mandate from God to love our neighbors. Micah the prophet summarized all of God’s commands for us relating to justice when he said:
He has told you – O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.
Advocates for the weak and the oppressed are badly needed in today’s world. In fact, the need has never been so great. That’s why I do what I do. God has blessed me with both the ability and the desire to help others. It has been my responsibility over the years to do my very best to be their advocate and to work hard to obtain justice for them. I take that responsibility very seriously and know that God has used me to help others and I thank Him daily for that. My prayer is that the rich and powerful in this country will come to realize that all of us, regardless of our stations in life or the color of our skin, must follow God’s commandments to let justice be done for all of His people. Hopefully, I will see that come to pass one of these days and hopefully that will be sooner than later.
