Raj Kumar Makkad (Adv P & H High Court Chandigarh)     23 December 2009

Why is the difference between 2 lawyers???

On a beautiful late spring afternoon, many years ago, two young men graduated from the same law school. They were very much alike, these two young men. Both had been better than average students, both were personable and both -- as new lawyers are -- were filled with ambitious dreams for the future.

Recently, these men met for lunch at their local bar association.

They were still very much alike.  Both were happily married.  Both had two children.  And both, it turned out, had become trial lawyers.

But there was a difference.  One of the men was a well-recognized courtroom advocate with a long string of winning verdicts.  The other was best known for settling cases on the courthouse steps for a fraction of their value.

What Made The Difference?

Have you ever wondered what makes this kind of difference in trial lawyers' reputations?  It's not native intelligence or talent or dedication.  It's not that one lawyer wants to win and the other doesn’t.

The difference lies in what each lawyer knows and how he or she makes use of that knowledge.

But real justice prevails on which sides?


Assumi ji,

Hon'ble Chief justice suggested out of court settlements for speedy disposal of cases. Both are capability of their own in legal knoweledge. Both are required for judiciary.

To my mind, it is the integrity and reputation earned by hard labour and honesty that makes a lawyer successful.


There may be difference of opinions but my understanding of life compels me to think so.

Route / line adopted by the first lawyer is right, as he is doing justice with his profession, which is more important. It is approach which matters more than success/achievement.

One lawyer was of a B+ (positive) group




the second lawyer was of a B- (negative) group.


Keep Smiling .... Hemant Agarwal

Both are welcomed in society.

IInd will get recognition as our system is reeling under pressure of backlog but Ist will get satisfaction and recognition as he is not a fixer but a lawyer in real sense
