To serve as a lawyer

Transcripts available in the following languages:

I think as a lawyer we are a service organization. And to me, the basic service you render is to give legal advice. My feeling has developed in me, and that is that whatever you own or have you should share, or give, or impart, any knowledge, information, intelligence, it should be shared. Keeping it in you they are worthless. And that’s the feeling I have is to impart and to give out and give away if I can. To the extent that I can, even now, we try to do that. That is the service element that was really built into me during my legal practice.
