“Even if lies are protected constitutionally by free speech, misleading people is a failure of integrity. We should never forget that our word is our bond and that telling the truth is how we build relationships. As Mark Twain said, 'If you tell the truth you don’t have to remember anything.' Our word to others still means a great deal—at least to them—and it applies to practicing law; it is better to undercommit and overperform than vice versa.”
—The Honorable Justice William A. Tilleman, Integrity and the Practice of Law
