Our government works because our people, businesses and government understand that collectively we govern our conduct by adherence to the equally applied rules of law. When those rules are violated, having counsel to represent those aggrieved is important to making the rule of law work. It must work for everyone, including those who are economically disadvantaged. It serves all of us, including the business community, to ensure everyone has effective access to the justice system. Anything that impedes access to the courts or to attorneys impedes the rule of law.
