I am a lawyer. In my experience, lawyers are, generally speaking, not the most honest, ethical, or moral people. If you gauge success by amount of money or amount of cases won, you’re almost certainly going to end up naming “most successful” lawyers who “succeeded” by cheating.
“Can I get away with it” is the motto of far, far too many lawyers today. In fairness, it’s the motto of far, far too many professionals today too. It’s why people trust professionals less and less as we spiral down into the moral sewer.
There are brilliant people out there who are lawyers. Those who manage to claw some justice out of the legal system without cheating are almost super human and deserve to be rightly described as “the most successful” lawyers.
