    Should I use false means to win in my first case as a lawyer or should I stick with the truth?

    I am a lawyer by profession. I have recently started my own practice and am going to fight my first case. I want to win this case at any cost. So should I be using false means , if required , to win this case or should I stick with the truth only? Please guide me in the right direction.

    Dear Sir,

    I congratulate you for becoming lawyer and getting you first case. But, I would suggest you to wait for the right opportunity to start your career.

    If you start your first case with the lie then you will loose self esteem and will be very difficult for you to recover from this error. Although, career is very important but to start it with lie is not right.

    If you stand by truth and fight for right causes, you may not get many cases in the beginning but you will earn respect and gradually you will start getting cases also.

    Hence, in my opinion, you should stand by the truth and does not use any false means to start your career.

    I would request you to work hard and improve your argumentation skills so that when you get the right case, you can impress everyone with the performance.

    All the best.
    Thank you.

    Hello,

    No, You should always stand for truth and truth only. Lawyear is a very noble profession
    and you should play your part in building a good society. There are many people in your
    profession who do not care for truth but they belong to a small group of individual. No
    matter whatt happens you should speak the truth for your clients and your case.

    Bye,

    Hello, I can give you some suggestions.Being a law student, I have seen my seniors practicing in different courts.From that experience ,I can tell you that,there is no such fixed formula to win a case.But hard work and dedication can lead you to success.For that you have to prepare a very good brief.The merits and demerits of the case should be very clear to you.I dont know whether you are going to appear for or in opposition.Whatever it is,along with your paperwork,you have to prepare your client too.Predicting the possible questions,you have to make your client aware beforehand that is,what to say and what not to say.In order to win a case it is very essential for a lawyer to think ahead so that the opposition cannot put your client into any trouble.

    hello,
    as this is your first case take guidance from a well expertised lawyer and take some tips about the situation and be honest.remember always truth wins and be on the truth side only.dont go in any wrong direction as it may spoil your future.be honest on your part and it will give you a win and you will be a winner.
    if you step into a false way then you will be continued in that state only and you will not come to the truth side as you know it is a truth.so be always on the truth side.
    thank you......

    You are asking for the right direction then right direction is truth and wrong direction is false way, answer you already know and i will prove that by going on wrong way you will never get the best feeling that you have by going on the right way because your heart will know that what is right and what is wrong , so listen to your heart, may be you will succeed by going on the wrong path but that will be for a short term and one day your truth the others will know, so if you want that you should never be scolded by other due to false work then never do those kind of work, may be the person you are proving as a criminal is a nice guy and the criminal you are proving the good one is very dangerous and can harm any of the person. So never get involved in such things that make you ashamed. And its your start of a career and you like to win a false case then never do that because if your start will be this then the end also like this.
