Showing Courtesy to Clients, Colleagues and Judges
1. Talk to the judge and court staff with respect. Listen to them without cutting the conversation. Your professionalism will depend on how you carry yourself. Being rude to a judge or staff will not affect either you or your client.
2. Use wisdom and politeness when dealing with clients. He may feel anxious or not like what you have to say, but try to look at the situation from his perspective. However, don’t let your client hurt you verbally or make a request that doesn’t make sense to you. You don’t need to represent every client who comes to you, and you shouldn’t!
3. Listen to your clients. Never judge, just listen and give advice. Even if your client has made a bad decision, which he will definitely do at some point during your representative’s process, find out the best way to resolve the situation and continue the process.
4. Be honest with your court, colleagues and clients. Being dishonest won’t take you anywhere and give you a reputation for dishonesty. Plus, your clients won’t trust you, which means you won’t be hired again by your clients. In extreme cases, dishonesty can jeopardize your legal practice permit if your state advocate association knows that you have violated the rules of professional conduct that oversee all lawyers.
5. Ask the witness questions correctly. When interrogating witnesses, ask the right questions related to the trial. Do not mock the witness if he is carried away by emotion, but also maintain professional distance. Remember that special treatment must be carried out against underage witnesses or victims of violent crime. Judges and / or judges will assess yourself from the way you treat others during the trial process.
Maintaining High Ethics
1. Maintain the confidentiality of prosecutors and clients. A client’s case is not the business of someone other than you. Express the information in court and to your opponents only to the extent that you have to do it and are needed to represent your clients effectively.
2. Follow the rules of state professional behavior for lawyers. Each country has a set of professional behavior rules that govern the behavior of all lawyers. If you cannot follow this rule, you will be at risk of receiving disciplinary action, which can cause you to be given a suspension or revocation of your legal practice license.
3. Obey the law. If you commit a crime, you will not only be penalized through the criminal justice system, but also get professional disciplinary action. Depending on your criminal form, you might also lose your job.
1. Remember that your success cannot always be measured by your payment. Sometimes, pro bono cases or cases that you receive for less pay are cases that can help you make the most significant changes. Getting ten digits is not a success for every lawyer. Many prosecutors working in legal aid offices, government offices, and other small paid jobs have been very happy with their careers and made major changes in the lives of others.
2. Know that there are other pathways to achieving a successful career. Some lawyers consider themselves successful when they become partners in strong law firms. Others feel satisfied making money with their single practice. And some still consider non-profit work or public interest to be the key to success in their lives. In the end, a successful career as a lawyer is what suits your success, not others.
3. Control your stress. Prosecutors often work long hours and face stressful situations in their daily lives. Learn how to eliminate and control stress from day to day. This step will allow you to think more clearly and calmly and be more effective in your work.
4. Be happy with your career choice. It will be difficult to enjoy or be successful in a career that you don’t like. If you do not enjoy your work, find the job that is most suitable for you you can really enjoy.
