This proves nothing. Lawyers have a professional obligation to work for anyone, and everyone has a right to a fair trial with competent legal aid, even terrorists.

Privately practicing lawyers don't have an obligation to work for everyone. Lawyers can decline taking any case or client they want, assuming they are not public defenders. And even then there are ways for a public defender to get out of cases if they are determined.
