MICHAEL NORRIS: If you become a target or you wind up in the crosshairs of the police on a murder charge, tell any police officer that you want to have an attorney and you do not want to talk to them. Their interest and your interests are not the same. There are a lot of criminal defense attorneys in Chicago. And there's a lot of good criminal defense attorneys in Chicago. Whether or not that person is competent to handle a murder case depends on the experience and the sophistication of that person. To be successful, you cannot have any fear. You have to believe that you're going to give your client the best defense that's available to him without any fear at all. Less experienced attorneys get nervous about this because the consequences of failing are extreme to your client. The fact that I have been certified to represent people in death penalty cases means that the Illinois Supreme Court has determined that I have the qualifications and experience necessary to represent people that have been charged with murder for which the ultimate sanction is available. That is your execution.
