|▲ Teheran / Lawyer Jeongchan|
Michael J. Sandel’s book <Justice: What's the Right Thing to Do?> has created a fever among readers in South Korea. It means that there are many people who are thirst for justice in our society. Talking of justice, many ordinary people have not many options but depend on lawyers to complain of an injustice. Recent drug and sexual abuses in South Korea especially is calling lawyers in the reflective areas.
Lawyer Jeongchan of Teheran has built his extensive knowledge and experience in the fields of drug and sexual abuses. In South Korea, the reinforced law has made drug and sexual crimes with heavier sentences even he/she is a first offender.
South Korea used to be drug-free but the news about drug abuses is pouring in recently. Also, the number sexual abuses have increased double in past few years as we have witnessed through #Metoo movement involving celebrities that has shaken the whole society. The trend tells us that the traditional physical abuses have now shifted to illegal videoing which then released to the public.
“The good news is that the enforced law and system are now able to find and erase those videos more effectively. However, the enforced law and system still have certain limitations. What is more, the victims, most women, are afraid of revenge from the offender so many of them are rather giving up. This is the point where specialized lawyers in the field provide legal advice” says Jeongchan.
Jeongchan’s secret of winning many a case is at his attention to detail. He checks everything with his own eyes to make the process clear and professional. “Attention to detail takes more time and study but it is the key attitude to win a case.”
Although he is busy most of the time, he travels down to his home town Gwangju Metropolitan City to give free legal advice to people in need twice a year.
