However, I get what you mean, often times, many lawyers take up cases for the wrong side of the court case. One lawyer that pops into my mind(if you're thinking Indian) is Ram Jethmalani. I mean he has defended people like Mohammad Afzal, Lalit Modi and even Manu Sharma. But here's the thing: In a court of law, a person is innocent unitl proven guilty by a preponderance of evidence. And that's how justice works, there is no such thing as whether it is 'moral or immoral' From a lawyer's perspective, it is the same, it is not about what people think, but what you think and what you wish to stand up for.
One such TV series about this is Siddhanth. I recommend people watch it when they have time.
Sometimes an honest lawyer is a poor lawyer ( like my late friend).
a friend of mine in Singapore married another lawyer and he left her to handle everything financial.
Next moment she steals the clients monies and absconds.
A year back my friend passed away, may his soul rest in peace.
My friend was not rich but he defended several criminal cases. When he was down another nice lawyer friend helped him too and gave him some space to work with.
Moral of the Story: Even if you are a lawyer, be careful of other lawyers.
