Vik Monder understands the criminal justice system is not perfect and things are not always as they appear. He chose this profession based on this premise alone. Before Vik Monder became the experienced criminal defense attorney he is today, he was a witness to the murder of his best friend. During that investigation Vik Monder realized many cracks existed in the criminal justice system.

From his own personal experience Vik Monder knows how the investigation process truly unfolds and how detectives will pressure individuals to blindly select a suspect from a lineup merely to move on to the next case.
