Individually, America's Founders were by many contemporary standards 'elitists,' if not in necessarily negative ways. As a group, the Founders combined respect for elitism and pluralism in their remarkably original political ideas -- and in the structuring and divisions of the 'grand experiment' of the new nation that they founded.

Did the founding fathers intend for our courts to be accessible only to elitists who could afford a lawyer?

No. I think that lawyers services cost less then than they do now. Beyond that, then, as now, there were lawyers who were willing to accept little or no pay, in at least some cases, so that people who could not afford it could have representation. Michael Montagne It wasn't until recently that the right to legal representation was even expected. Most oftenly, one represented oneself in the court of law, and the prosectutor did the same. Gideon v. Wainwright established that counsel must be provided to all defendants whether the case is a capital crime or not.

It is thought the ancient Greeks flirted with a system that we would now call 'democracy' - but they quickly realized the error of their ways and stopped doing it.
