For The Lawyer In The Family

Regardless of religious affiliation (if any), most lawyers would benefit from keeping this in mind:

St. Thomas More Prayer

Lord grant that I may be able in argument,
accurate in analysis,
strict in study,
candid with clients
and honest with adversaries.
Sit with me at my desk
and listen with me to my client's plaints,
read with me in my library,
and stand beside me in court,
so that today I shall not,
in order to win a point
lose my soul.
