Advocates should not cheat their clients.
But they do.
Why? Reasons are many. I myself joined this profession because I wanted to change the system. I believe that be the change you want to see.
I am very upright. Not all are like me.
I rewind. When I joined law college. I joined with the above intention.
People should not lie. But they do. I had thought law teachers, law professors and lecturers are might be an exception. But there too I found that they are just normal people who are professors, lecturers, teachers who have joined job for filling tummy. They lie. I caught many of them, but when asked why they lied, they made sorry face. This is the situation of at the birth place of lawyers ie law colleges. Now if those who teach are like this what can you expect the outcome from such colleges? You will surely get crooks, cheats, liars who will take clients for a ride. Many of the people know that lawyers are there who simply take money and don’t even file case, or join hands with opposite party. Not just lawyers, there are judges who are corrupt. Why they do like this? They don’t have proper education at law colleges or their schooling is not proper or their parents are not good?
It is my opinion that their parents are not good, they did not teach them to NOT LIE and be upright. Even if they did, due to tummy they might be doing all this nonsense.
If their parents are not upright, how can their children be upright? Even if parents did not teach them to be upright, did their school teachers or law school lecturers did not teach them to be upright? If at one place they could not be corrected, they could have been corrected at some other place down the line is it not?
Whatever it is, if a person is a cheat, and is not upright person, then it is a individual trait.
If conscience was alive for each and every person would there be need for courts?
Your fate that you got such cheats as your advocates. If you have something to complain, complain to local bar association, do follow up, if matter is left out, then go to state bar council and so forth.
If lawyers are cheat, judges who became judges were also once lawyers only. Finally if matter goes in front of a judge that some cheating has happened to a client, judge also was a lawyer once, he or she might let out the cheater lawyer who cheated you with some warning or some fine. Or suspension for 6 months to 3 years. That is justice as per law.
For you justice might be picking up a gun and shooting both the lawyer who cheated you and the judge who let the lawyer go with warning or suspension. If you do that, you are again at the mercy of the judiciary where some lawyer will defend your case even if you don’t want (courtesy free legal aid).
What according to you is justice? Think. Think think.
