Lawyers LIE because a “LIE” must be proven false beyond a ‘reasonable doubt’. And Lawyers tell more lies about the lies they tell because those lies must be proven false beyond a ‘reasonable doubt’. As you see the best legal strategy is to lie and never tell the truth.
Telling the truth puts an END to the controversy. There is ONLY one person who benefits by the TRUTH … the VICTIM! But by telling lies … the legal fees go through the roof and the criminal may be set free.
