It is a common thing to see attorneys represent their clients zealously, but still within the bounds of the law. They seek lawful protection for their client by winning the case through all available means that are permitted by the law. Lawyers shouldn’t use prejudice against the opposing legal team to win the case. It means that we need to have a proper definition of being zealous when defending the client during the case. It often means that although attorneys can be somewhat aggressive, it is important to make sure that things can be made lawful. Attorneys shouldn’t be unruly, unreasonable, uncooperative and disagreeable. They shouldn’t do anything all in the name being highly zealous in defending the client. Being too zealous to the extent of bending or even breaking the law is no longer effective and in many cases, can be quite unproductive. When we try to circumvent the regulation, it can be harder to determine whether we have gone over the top.
It is clear that attorneys who become unruly, unreasonable and uncooperative to others could provide their own clients with disservice. They may bring unexpected legal consequences and less than satisfactory results. In any place in this world, we always reap what we sow and if attorneys refuse to work in a proper manner with others, including with the opposing legal teams, they may cause uneasiness, extra legal fees, conflicts and unnecessary motions. Overzealous attorneys may also assert unreasonable objections too frequently causing improper results. Some attorneys become self-righteous much too easily and this may cause cross motions, countersuits and abrupt ending in conversations. Clients should be able to remind their attorneys, when they seem to display self righteous indignations and if attorneys refuse to comply, then we may need to consider choosing a different attorney. If the legal case has reached and advanced stage, it is a good idea to constantly remind the attorney about proper behaviours.
Successful attorneys are known for their spirit of cooperation and reasonableness. They seek to work toward fair results, instead of trying to humiliate and cheat others. Overzealous attorneys may win a case or two with their relentless aggressiveness, but they will reap the fruit of bad seed that they sow. The intensity of legal conflicts can often be heightened when the other side follows suit in terms of aggressiveness. It’s easy to get angry at people who treat us unfairly and people could quickly respond to our discourteous conducts. Attorneys should understand their own behaviour and find out about the actual motive behind their improper behaviors. Any attorney in the courtroom has contributions in determining the climate of inter-personal relationships. Attorneys shouldn’t scratch, bite and grab to every directions to win the case. If they do these things, they will only lower themselves in front of others. They won’t be able to become productive and fruitful. After the case is concluded, it will be harder for these legal professionals to forgive one another and make peace.
