The legal ethics has been focused on evaluating the actions and non-propositional attitudes of lawyers. In the first case, it has established a catalog of duties. In the second, it has identified a list of virtues. This paper addresses the issue of the moral evaluation of propositional attitudes in particular of beliefs. The work explores the relevance of political values to evaluate the beliefs that defense lawyers have with regard to their clients. It presents a non-evidentialist conception according to which political values -understood as something different from epistemic, prudential or private moral considerations- are relevant to the assessment oflawyer's beliefs.
