As Interviewed by Alberto Edwards
"When we looked at their cases, one of the things that we figured out was that if you had the money to hire a good lawyer, that was the best way to avoid getting the death penalty. People who had appointed lawyers—who didn’t have enough money to hire experts or conduct an investigation—those were the people who ended up on Death Row."

"You don't get to choose how bad a crime is. If somebody steals something, you don't get to choose what they take or how many windows they break. The victim gets next to no rights. The criminal gets all of the rights."

As Interviewed by Lorenzo Pesina
"I grew up in Texas as a free man. But growing up, I had huge problems within my life. I was treated wrongly in my life by cops, whites and blacks, and just about everything. In my belief, our society will always be white-dominant. It was always about the color of our skin and about what we, as people, had in our blood."

James "Jim" Marcus

As Interviewed by Finlay Scanlon
"The hardest part of the job is the responsibility of the consequences, of me carrying someone’s life in my hands. Most cases don’t end well. If you end up on death row in Texas, they have a very high chance of being executed. I’ve had clients executed. And that’s incredibly difficult. I always wonder, 'What if I had made this decision instead of that decision. What if I had tried a different argument?' We’re constantly called upon to make strategic decisions, and when they don’t work it’s pretty hard not to second guess yourself. I wonder if I could’ve gotten a stay of execution if I had gone through door number two instead of door number one."

"I do believe it’s possible to fix the law system to be fair to all races, I believe that racism was created, many many years ago, and so If something has been created by us, then we are able to remove this from our society."
