TIPS FOR NEW LITIGATION LAWYERS- DESPISE THE FREE LUNCH
Everything has a price tag- and they are oftentimes invisible price tags. What is offered for free is dangerous- usually from opposing counsel and sometimes from your own devious clients.It usually involves a bait or a hidden agenda.( mati ikan kerana umpan). What has worth is worth paying for.By paying your own way-you stay clear of gratitude, guilt or feeling a sense of obligation to anyone.It is often wise to pay the full price- and guard your sense of independence.You can only be free when you owe no one anything.When you fall into debt in this area-then you have to take your place with the other "slaves-to-their Clients"- within the legal profession.Ingore this advice at your own peril.
