Abstract:     
This Article responds to Professor Mae C. Quinn's critique of the author's piece, Therapeutic Jurisprudence and the Rehabilitative Role of the Criminal Defense Lawyer, published in a 2005 symposium issue of the St. Thomas Law Review. This Reply Article suggests that Professor Quinn has badly misread or distorted the author's St. Thomas article. This Article takes serious issue with her characterization of the author's work, contends that the author and Professor Quinn are closer on many issues than her critique suggests, and points out areas of agreement and disagreement. Therapeutic Jurisprudence can be incorporated into the role of the criminal defense lawyer and, as a simple "add-on," it can be transformative of criminal law practice.
