This is my observation and not to offend anyone. I had this experience of meeting a lawyer who came sometime back representing my bank who gave a homeloan to the registrar office. For the two visits and for every single call he didn't use his mobile. He was almost coming down at his knees for my or my builder's mobile to make local calls.
More over very recently I had an experience with a lawyer due to family problem of a friend. He was giving 'missed calls' when he wanted to communicate. The worst part is that when we had to travel together to Pallavaram, he was asking us to give money for train return ticket (for just 3 rs).
The same lawyer referred to another group for preparing some documents. His colleague was also for ten minutes in the midst of discussion was telling that the phone is not working and lame reasons. When my friend offered his mobile to talk and get the matter fast she used that connection to talk her personal issues too.
The legal profession and BL/ML is considered as professional courses. But why are practising lawyers so stingy, mean and unethical? Is there a bar council section where these guys can be brought to book to? MTC drivers have yearly courses organized to teach them how to behave in public. I believe such 'how to move in social' should be necessary for chennai law practitioners too. Definitely lawyers earn a good chunk for each case and all the lawyers I have witnessed above are well-to-do but why are they moving so mean?
