Have you ever taken an oath? To tell the truth; to discharge an office faithfully; to honor and obey?
The oath we take as lawyers reads: “I do solemnly swear that I will demean myself uprightly and according to law; and that I will support the Constitution of the United States.”
Many of us in the legal profession probably don’t think much about the oath we took years ago as we were admitted to the bar. Like many things in life, if we do not need it every day, we often forget about it.
But the promise to demean oneself “uprightly and according to law” is based upon fundamentally important principles that must guide our actions every day. If we forget, or even neglect our oath, we gradually abandon our principles; if we abandon our principles, then our mission as lawyers becomes less a mission, and more aimless wandering.
At Lars Liebeler PC, we are dedicated to the practice of law, not as a job, but as a craft. We are your advocates but dedicated to honesty to each client: we will tell you what we think, not what we think you want to hear. We make a Commitment to Excellence: There is no substitute for hard work, attention to detail, and professional skill.
Taking ethical shortcuts may be tempting, but it is habit forming, and it is wrong. We take the ethical standards of our profession seriously. We practice law with respect for our clients, our adversaries and the courts. And, we are mindful of Justice Sutherland’s counsel to “throw hard blows” but not “foul blows.” Berger v. United States, 295 U.S. 78 (1935).
you have to go out on a limb, because that
is where the fruit is.
