This is a frequent question raised by many people who find themselves at the receiving end of the law.
" SIR, WHICH ADVOCATE TO CHOOSE ? I AM CONFUSED "
To such readers and members, here is the answer.
They are all advocates ( by profession ), but there are three types.
1) Advocates who are purely commercial.
2) Advocates who are a combination of humanitarian concern and commercial approach.
3) Advocates who deliver lectures about humanitarian values, judicial system, life,...etc
Avoid type one and type three advocates.
Always search for the type two advocates. The ones who are a combination of humanitarian concern and commercial approach.
The type one advocates who are purely commercial are a high risk. They are far fetched from reality of life. They would put you into deeper trouble in addition to the troubles that you are already facing.
They have no humanitarian concern at all. They have their own set of regular clients or regular income.
They know that subject knowledge and network are both important and they are good at the subject and have a network of high-placed political contacts,...etc.
But their tolerance level is too low and even the judges know these types well enough and their brother advocates avoid them.
To put it in one sentence " They are dangerously abnormal ".
They charge high fee and are least bothered even if you die. Pay their fee, sell anything you have, but pay their fee. They are with such a horrible thinking pattern.
Next, The type three advocates. Now these are the ones who do not do anything in life unless there is some benefit in it for them, 100 percent. All for themselves. They would have studied for LLB,...etc purely with one motive. Where are the CONTROL POINTS ? WHICH LOOP-HOLE OF LAW AND WHICH ASPECT OF LAW WOULD GIVE ME MONEY, FAME AND ALSO THE MASS-CONTROL.
They are least bothered about the subject-knowledge and are the MEMORIZING TO CLEAR THE EXAM types.
They depend heavily upon network and short-cuts.
They usually have a huge network of like-minded people across all professions.
They know all the dirty games and they would not hesitate to do harm to anybody, whosoever, if it serves their purpose.
To them, their ultimate aim in life is to CONTROL THE WORLD.
Yes, these advocates are more interested in the CONTROL GAME.
Their fee too would either be LOW or HIGH. They swing between extremes.
If low, it is with a hidden agenda of enslaving you.
If high, it is a state of mind that he/she is in. Once they decide to charge you a high amount, they would not change their stance. They do not care how you get it. Even if you die, they would take your purse out and move on, as if nothing happened.
They would help only their family members and known people. If they help any body out of their known circle, it has to be for a huge gain and mostly it would be the CONTROL GAME.
They have A SINGLE DESIRE.
" HAVE THE ENTIRE WORLD UNDER THEIR CONTROL "
Psychologically they are so very smart that their reflexes and senses are very sharp.
They know which time, which money and which energy is a dead investment and which fetches them returns ?
The day they step into college, their thinking is purely on the GAINS AND CONTROL.
After a few months of practise as advocates and having realized the way the law operates, they go on a self-assuming trip, to such great heights that they assume they are GOD.
If you get trapped with one such advocate, as a man, be careful. You will end up as a slave. They are experts in enslaving people.
If you are a woman, beware of your honour since they know the art of manipulation too very well for the alert woman too, to avoid.
You would discover that your purse and property too would have gone into their hands.
Avoid these type three advocates. Do not trust their lectures and speeches and words of bravery.
They are mostly failures both in life and in profession.
Type two advocates are the best.
They are FLEXIBLE.
They are the normal routine advocacy advocates.
They do their job, they do it well.
They are ok with your arguments, negotiation,...etc.
They give you discounted fee offers ( if you request ), they are ok with instalment based payments, they spend time with you, they behave normally since they know they cannot practise and earn as advocates in a jungle.
They know that they have to practise and earn as advocates, in the human society.
They understand human emotions, family sentiments,...etc.
If you lose the case, they will guide you about appeals,..etc.
So, advocacy as a profession is done well by them.
They charge nominal fees and even if fee is high, they are with you through-out the case.
YOU CAN EASILY MAKE-OUT SUCH ADVOCATES. THEY WOULD DISCUSS MORE OF THE LEGAL POINTS AND CITATIONS AND THE LOOP-HOLES OF LAW AS APPLICABLE TO YOUR CASE. THEY DO NOT DELIVER WORDS OF BRAVERY SINCE THEY KNOW THAT NO TWO DAYS ARE THE SAME IN THE COURT OF LAW. THEY KNOW THAT PRACTICALLY LAW OPERATES DIFFERENTLY. SO THEY DO NOT GIVE FALSE HOPES AND FALSE ASSURANCES. THEY WOULD TELL YOU THAT THEY WOULD GIVE YOUR CASE THEIR BEST EFFORTS.
THEY PREPARE WELL FOR YOUR CASE AND ARE MATURE ENOUGH TO ACCEPT YOUR INPUTS AS WELL.
LUCKILY FOR TODAY'S SOCIETY, MANY ADVOCATES ARE IN THIS TYPE TWO CATEGORY.
More so since many advocates have a family with wife, children and other commitments. They understand what the common man undergoes.
NARRATE YOUR CASE AND SEE THE RESPONSE.
MEET THE ADVOCATE MORE THAN ONCE OR TWICE. YOU CAN EASILY DECIDE WHICH TYPE OF ADVOCATE HE/SHE IS.
So, always, go in search of these type two advocates.
Wishing You All the Best in your search.
