Being a lawyer

Being a lawyer is not an easy thing. In fact, law school is probably the easiest part of it. One of my professors in law school used to say “try making a living out of it!”. Well, years have passed now and things have been good and sometimes not so good.

Most people picture lawyers as the fancy person who goes to court and has this appealing demeanor and wins a case with a lot of confidence and always sharp. The truth is that lawyers are just human beings. Most lawyers do not always win and are buried in paperwork. Going to court becomes a hassle and often does not end up as glamorous as we see on TV.

In my opinion, a good lawyer is a person who has integrity and will fight for the truth. There is no need to be a liar to be a lawyer. You can always win by telling the truth!

I have one advice for lawyers and law students out there – do not be arrogant! Remember you are a human being too!
