"Making a Murderer" Teaches Lawyering Lessons

Netflix docu-series "Making a Murderer" has exploded in popularity over the past several months. The show, which chronicles the arrest and subsequent murder trial of Wisconsin resident Steven Avery, is a gripping commentary on the shortcomings inherent in our country's criminal justice system.

The show's heroes are Avery's defense lawyers, Jerry Buting and Dean Strang. Although unsuccessful in defending Mr. Avery against first degree murder charges, Buting and Strang reveal themselves as fantastic and passionate advocates who are fiercely dedicated in defending a man that the public and media branded as guilty long before his trial began.

Buting and Strang's defense of Avery underscores the absolute importance of attorneys in preserving the rights of their clients in the face of criminal prosecution. This role is no less important in the civil justice system, where personal injury attorneys serve a vital function in protecting the rights, well-being, and future of those harmed by corporate negligence, medical malpractice, etc.

It would be impossible for anyone to watch "Making a Murderer" and imagine Avery tackling Ken Kratz, the Manitowoc Sheriff's Department, and even the FBI alone. Accident and injury victims should not make the mistake of believing that in the civil justice system insurance companies and corporate wrongdoers will resolve claims simply because it is the right thing to do. Find your own Buting and Strang by contacting civil attorneys Ryan, Ryan & Landa today. We will work just as hard in securing your rights and recovery.
