It Pays To Be Nice

Family law, criminal law, civil law, general law

I get calls from people wanting me to be nasty and rude in handling their cases. Some people think that good lawyering means acting like a jerk. Some of those ideas come from TV, some seem to come from the general rudeness which seems to pass for public political discourse for some people in this country. Contrary to what they see on TV, and the temporary success of certain politicians, being a jerk does not help your case, as a leader or lawyer. Judges and juries, like most of the rest of us, do not like rude, mean people.

When people ask me to be a jerk for them, I tell them that I do not act like a jerk for anyone, including myself, and, even if I did, it would not help their case.
