El Chapo’s Trial

Nearly seven months after his extradition to the United States, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera—the most notorious drug trafficker in the world, according to U.S. prosecutors—may finally be getting private legal representation.

via How Will Mexican Drug Kingpin El Chapo’s Pay His Lawyer?

ANSWER:

Legal profession is not a business but a lifelong commitment in pursuit of justice.

Lawyers, in the absence or incapability of his client to pay money in exchange for the latter’s service, should not be a hindrance in rendering necessary advice for the former’s interest.

Also, the lawyer may agree with the client on contingent fee which will be paid after the case has been won according to their agreement according to the law.
