Attorney for Freedom

What's the difference between a dead skunk and a dead lawyer in the middle of the road? The skunk has skid marks in front of it! Okay, so we all have heard the jokes before, and some of them I'm sure are well deserved; truth is, most lawyers are scum. Most of them simply get paid to walk you through the system.

I have always been a firm believer that when someone does something that rises above the stereotypical norm that exists in society, they should be recognized for it. I have a good friend who is a criminal defense attorney in Mesa , Arizona . Now that alone is nothing special, as there are thousands of attorneys in Arizona.

Marc Victor is not one of those ordinary attorneys who will walk you through the 'criminal justice' system while holding your hand. From the moment you meet him, you will immediately sense something different. For starters, take a look at his business card. On the front you will notice that at the bottom he has his website address, which is: This will no doubt be your first clue that you are not dealing with an ordinary attorney. How many other attorneys have a 'Don't tread on me' flag on their website?

Marc also has the distinction of being the shortest-lived pro-tem judge in the history of Arizona. Earlier this year, he was kicked off the bench for recusing himself from drug cases based on his libertarian beliefs. As a member of the legal committee of NORML, he based his recusal on strong, principled beliefs that people should be free to live their lives as they choose.

When you turn the business card over, you will notice something unique on the back. It is a friendly reminder to yourself of the only thing you should say to any 'law enforcement' officer you may encounter. This statement is what you will read to a 'law enforcement' officer if you should find yourself in one of their clutches. 'I refuse to consent to any search whatsoever. As such, I do not consent to a search of my premises, my person, my immediate location or any vehicle or effects. I hereby exercise my rights as enumerated by the Fourth, Fifth, Ninth, and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution and Article Two of the Arizona Constitution. I demand to have an attorney present prior to and throughout any questioning at all. Additionally, I wish to consult with my attorney prior to any discussion with law enforcement officers on the subject of waiver.'

I know what most everyone is thinking: 'I will never need a lawyer.' I can understand that kind of thinking, but trust me, he is not the Maytag repairman, and you will need him one day! I know this personally because he freed me from the beast a few years ago.

Marc is a true freedom fighter who makes his living off fighting the government leviathan. He takes a personal interest in freeing you from the grip of the beast, but Marc does more than fight the bad guys for a living; he fights them in his free time as well. As co-founder of the Freedom Summit, an annual symposium on the prospects of freedom in our lifetime, Marc along with long time freedom fighter Ernie Hancock have teamed up to bring together some of the best minds in the freedom movement today. Be sure to look at the Freedom Summit website for who has spoken at past events, and who will be at the next one.

As well as the Freedom Summit, he has also been asked to speak at many freedom events such as the Eris Society and the Future of Freedom Foundation, just to name a few. He has battled the government on many fronts, and you will experience just how heinous the beast can be as you read one of his eye-opening articles such as My Contribution to Science, Don't Be Your Worst Enemy or one of the others you will find on his website.

He has also written many articles for websites such as Strike The Root and Lew Rockwell, which gives the reader an insight into his world of defending freedom against an immoral government.

There are many attorneys who you can hire to fight for you, but wouldn't it be nice to know that your attorney is an attorney for freedom?

Did you hear the one about Mike Wasdin and Marc Victor on the side of the road in handcuffs? I will save that joke for another time. I am proud to have a friend like Marc Victor, the attorney for freedom!
