Im sure lawyers do lie specially if their client is rich. Isn't it?

All lawyers are liars. Believe me, that's how they make their money. No matter what type of attorney they are, they represent someone else's interest. They only tell the side of the story they know or want heard. Of course the richer the client the higher the attorney's fees. Thusly the looser the conscious.

Yes. I agree with you. Lawyers sometimes are liers if they are defending clients in the first place they know are guilty. But what can they do? It's their job.

I don't think they are actually allowed to lie. But they are certainly very good with words and clever in the way they say things to guide you to believe certain things without actually saying it is true. I wouldn't call this lying really but just being devious.

Yes! You are right to certain extent! We can see daily in News papers that a criminal are caught and trails they are taking palce and prosecution procedures are giuven in details and at the end of it , it is really dishearten to know that the criminal or the accused is let go out on the grounds that there was no sufficient evidence against him. It is not only the Lawyers who are liers, but the system as a whole is rresponsible for it. The rules and regulations, legislation, does have loop holes in it and these are cleverly used by the so called professionally licenced 'Lawyers' [Liers] for their vested interests, Destruction of evidence, by hook or crook. Forcebly or by threatening the witnesses many atimes the case doesn't even stand in the court. By misinterpriting the Penal Code things are manipulated and the accused is let loose. Yes Money has a power to purchase every thing, then why the Justice be spared! Lawyers are acting as agents to sell the Justice in the Court of Law. If had these people be so true, there wouldn't have been any reason to reopen any case, which is commonly seen now a days! Its really pathetic to say, but it is true that what you said is absolutely naked truth and it is really painful and disheartening to say so!

Of course they're liars. Most, if not all, politicians are lawyers by the way. You've probably heard the old joke...How can you tell if a lawyer is lying? His lips are moving...

Yeah,exactly. Plus they will really defend their customer because they were paid in full and sometimes more than that just to win the case.
