What lawyers should not tell?
Five things not to say to a lawyer (if you want them to take you seriously)”The Judge is biased against me” Is it possible that the Judge is “biased” against you? “Everyone is out to get me” “It’s the principle that counts” “I don’t have the money to pay you” Waiting until after the fact.
What if a lawyer knows his client is lying?
When a lawyer has actual knowledge that a client has committed perjury or submitted false evidence, the lawyer’s first duty is to remonstrate with the client in an effort to convince the client to voluntarily correct the perjured testimony or false evidence.
Should I admit guilt to my lawyer?
If there is any way a criminal defense attorney can raise reasonable doubt in the client’s guilt, so long as it is ethical to do so, the attorney will do it. Does this mean that if a client admits guilt to his or her attorney, the attorney cannot enter a not guilty plea or zealously represent the client? No.
