A lawyer is one of the most responsible citizens in the society. It is mandatory that he/he should possess good qualities. Not only does he/she need to be a good solicitor but a good human being as well. A humane person's priority is to provide necessary aid to people. Money or status do not mean a thing to a good samaritan. A solicitor should understand the real gist of humanity. A virtuous person therefore is important in the uplifting of the society.
A lawyer is a person who contests trials in the courts and provides justice to the grieving party. He ought to be competitive and committed to the purpose of his/her clients. However, while combatting the legal tactics there is a risk of her/him compromising on her/his morals and as a result she/he could forget to empathize with others. Winning a case does not mean you need to compromise on compassion and use vile manipulation to achieve success. Not only would this tarnish the reputation of the lawyer, but it could affect the credibility of the solicitor as well.
These kinds of social encounters could result in reducing the levels of empathy and compassion. Solicitors become immune to the human values. But that is not the case always, there are always a few exceptions. Whatever be the story, here are some qualities that every lawyer is expected to have.
A good lawyer should judge intutively and understand the client's situation. A good lawyer should never be blunt or direct. He should have high awareness of the necessary social conduct. Reputable lawyers are known for their comprehension abilities. They can conduct themselves in the best possible manner, as they are fully aware of the social rights and duties. Each and every case and trial offers uniqueness, so one should understand how to approach the complexities. Lacking the necessary comprehension could prove disastrous - both to the client and the lawyer.
Compassion is a quality every human being ought to possess. If one does not have compassion, then it could result in a lot of friction. A compassionate lawyer could help in protecting and uplifting the socially downtrodden, and live true to the words of any country's preamble, making justice available to one and for all, irrespective of the caste, race and creed. Lawyers minus compassion is like a body without a brain or more like a corpse without life. A brusque conversation or approach while discussing the case could jeopardize the very purpose af justice; one could end up losing the case as well as the client and without the scrutiny required for sorting the matter.
If a solicitor cannot empathize with his clients then he would not receive the necessary perspective and direction, something that is always necessary in sensitive cases.
Without these two virtues, the character of a human is not worth consideration. While loyalty would mean that the lawyer is beside the client in every situation, even if there are some false defamatory accusations. He/she should exhibit fidelity with clients because there have been numerous occasions when the lawyer has associated himself with the opposing party - just for a financial appraisal.
These are the necessary qualities a lawyer ought to have, if he/she wants to serve the society for a greater good.
