“’[S]ervice is the rent we pay for living. It is the very purpose of life and not something you do in your spare time.’” (citing Marian Wright Edelman).

“…Gerald Lopez, Rebellious Lawyering: One Chicano’s Vision of Progressive Law Practice (1992)… describ[es] how the rebellious lawyer will often come up against skepticism and bewilderment from other involved attorneys whose idea of problem solving does not coincide with that of the rebellious lawyer, and who tend to want to focus on their own special area of law, i.e. that area of law they are most comfortable with.”

Cited from David Dominguez, REDEMPTIVE LAWYERING: THE FIRST (AND MISSING) HALF OF LEGAL EDUCATION AND LAW PRACTICE, 37 Cal. W. L. Rev. 27 (2000).
