6 Zodiac Signs Who Make Good Defense Attorneys

Astrology can help guide us in some of our decisions, especially deciding on what kind of career to pursue. For those individuals who want a career in law, they have to decide what area of law to practice.

If you have an interest in criminal law, you might think you’d make a good defense attorney, and this is where astrology comes in. There are certain zodiac signs who make good defense attorneys, all depending on their personalities that make them excel at defending a client.

Not everyone has it in them to be a defense attorney. You have to go to law school, which is expensive; then, you have to pass the bar, and that’s before you even start a practice. To be a great lawyer, you’ve got to be able to persevere, negotiate, and analyze. You need to have a little devil's advocate in you.

The thing people fail to realize is that a defense attorney has to care because if they don’t, their client will lose. 

1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries make good defense attorneys because they have fantastic negotiating skills. There are a lot of cases settled out of court, so the defendant needs an attorney who knows all the angles and can get the most for their client.

Also, Aries are great at thinking on their feet, so when the prosecution presents some surprise evidence, they can handle it and make it work for their case. An Aries defense attorney is going to do whatever is needed to get their client justice.

2. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras have the courtroom demeanor that a defendant needs in a lawyer. Libras have energy, charisma, and enthusiasm, and they're not going to just go through the motions. They will fight for their clients and are heavily invested in their cases.

Libras enjoy having an audience (or members of the court) in the palm of their hands. Another reason they would make excellent defense attorneys is that they care passionately that justice is done, and they wouldn't be intimidated by the judge or the prosecutors.

Some people can't take the stress of being an attorney, but Taurus can handle it. They're born fighters and have a gift for arguing in court. They tend to be hard workers, and are dependable and persistent — everything a good defense attorney needs to be.

In addition, Cancers tend to have good relationships with law enforcement and can extract evidence from them without too much interference.
