There is an irony in what a lawyer should really do to get the best results for his or her client.

We all know that lawyers should strive to seek justice, so to speak, for their clients. Even in disputes about contract, property, or money. Every client deserves to seek justice, be it the “little guy” or a giant corporation. Everyone, including lawyers, know that instinctively because it is common sense.

But I believe that to really seek justice for a client, a lawyer needs to treat the other side, and their story, with respect, fairness and empathy. Only then can a lawyer truly serve his or her client’s best interests. That is the irony.
