Law and Justice
This chapter discusses Santa Muerte's role as a patron saint of law and justice. She is seen as a supernatural attorney who represents her devoted clients regardless of the crimes they may have committed. Unconcerned with their guilt or innocence, she seeks the best deal possible for her clients in a dysfunctional justice system fraught with corruption and incompetence. Given her reputation for expeditiousness and her strong association with matters of justice, Saint Death has become one of the most popular spiritual patrons of those seeking to advance their cause in court.
