Zealous Advocacy
An ethical lawyer’s job.
Lawyers are supposed to exercise zeal and enthusiasm in prosecuting their clients’ lawsuits. They are supposed to proceed without regard to their own personal bias. They are supposed to proceed without fear of reprisals from the judges or fellow lawyers. They are not even supposed to consider the financial rewards promised ... or the lack thereof. Zealous advocacy is required of lawyers in many jurisdictions as a measure of professional conduct. If you have employed a lawyer to represent you in a dispute, ask for a copy of the lawyer’s oath and of the rules of conduct imposed upon him by rules of the state bar and the court system in your state.
