Diego Ruiz Duran has committed fully to his career and has made quite the name for himself as a Criminal Defense Lawyer. Fighting for controversial people is a big challenge and studying how to best protect people is quite important. Mr. Duran networked with Jose Luis Nassar. That network connection alone propelled him to start his own firm which was his lifelong dream. This alone is a powerful example of why having a strong network and advisory group can be the difference in having life success or not.
By being a professor and instructor in Mexico City regarding law he is able to further improve his network. Duran has become an amazing expert in both criminal law and constitutional law. He is truly an inspiration. In effectively managing his network and career Mr. Duran has had to be quite effective in boundary setting and picking and choosing which clients are effective for him to work with. To maintain high profile cases he has to be somewhat selective. This can be career killing for a young lawyer but he successfully pulled it off and launched his career to great heights.
He has maintained worldwide recognition but he has always been very careful to maintain his clients privacy in all cases. He knows how to maintain truth and is headstrong about doing the best for his clients, especially because the media can quite often present un-true and unfavorable stories.
He continues to keep his network strong through his teaching and is able to always connect with young new lawyers and learn about the pressing issues from today. Duran graduated with top scores from Escuela Libre de Derecho and his strong support system really helped him create a top firm. He firmly believes that Mexico has a very complex delivery of justice there. Criminal justice is quite messy and people should be allowed to accuse and use the accusatory system but he believes that the accused deserves the right to a fair trial and to have the best chance of a fair defense.
It is very important to keep the Human element and understand that humans are not perfect. He has also made quite the reputation for helping reduce gender based valance which is quite a big problem in Mexico and across the world at large. This is such a deep rooted world problem, and we need strong advocates and lawyers helping make the world a bit safer one case at a time. He is known to be the best of the best for this.
Growing your network can help either launch a career, or take your career to the next level. It is important to always look for mentorship and help just like he did, and also look for ways to give back to the youth coming after you just like Duran does through his teaching.
