You could say I am very wrong.
I turned down a really big client because I believed he was guilty of the serious charges against him and there was no provision in law that could save him. Lots of people told me it was a mistake to let him go because he's the 'big fish' types and that even if you knew you can't make a decent man out of him, you could still have represented him and made lots of money and contacts in the process. While I admire lawyers who are able to do that and sleep peacefully, its not what makes me happy at the end of the day, when I look into my son's eyes and want to see a world of wonders there, not one of treachery reflecting back through me. What my father taught me about honesty, I want to pass it as a legacy even if it means letting the big fishes go their way. Their way is not mine.
When we began Axess Legal Corp, we knew the road ahead would not be easy because we had taken a big responsibility and risk at one go. There are some things that I will not compromise on - integrity, honesty and openness. I can not justify to myself if I compromise on any of these three things, not even for the sake of money because it is not always about money. Yes, we need it but not to the point of doing things that we can't justify to ourselves at the end of the day.
At some point of time, each of us has to do what we believe is the right thing for oneself, isn't it? What do you say?
